A nice enough phone for those on a budget. Sadly, the touchscreen does make it a bit of a chore to use, but as a simple, effective Android phone, it's very likeable indeed....

The U8510 Blaze is remarkably cheap, but it’s also surprisingly cheerful and Huawei has done a good job of delivering a relatively capable Android smartphone for very little money. It’s probably only suited as a main smartphone for...

The Huawei IDEOS X3 naturally makes plenty of compromises to deliver on its $99 price. The screen feels sticky to swipe and isn't always smooth, the glossy coating makes it reflective under light and the keyboard is tiny. Despite these limitations...

While it’s not quite the leap we were expecting, the Huawei Blaze offers Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a capacitive screen and a design that makes it look like it costs much more than it actually...

In the context of its price bracket, the Blaze is a very well featured phone, with excellent connectivity, a solid design and some nice Huwaei additions to the Android user interface. It can be a little slow at times and the camera isn’t...

It has to be said that while we were more than happy to go back to our own £500 mobile at the end of the test, the Blaze does a lot for its £100 pricetag. Sure, it was a tad slow when running multiple apps, and it’s not the best looking...

The Huawei Blaze gets you an awful lot for not much money. Solid build, the full roster of smartphone features and a decent screen ensure the phone can hold its own against devices that cost £200 or more SIM-free. It's not perfect - slight lag...

The Huawei Ideos X3 is a decent entry-level smartphone that has met our expectations. Shelling out S$288 (without contract) or possibly nothing with contract, the smartphone is a steal for those looking for a taste of the Gingerbread pie. To put...

Das Ideos X3 von Huawei ist ein Smartphone, dem seit seinem Verkaufsstart Anfang September reges Interesse entgegenschlägt. Mit einem Preis von nicht einmal 100 Euro wurde das Android-Gerät zunächst als Aktionsware beim...
