  • Lindsay 19/9/2012 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    This is an excellent phone for the money. Battery life is excellent, it has a card slot and the display is crisp and detailed.

    Camera is also excellent. Highly recommended.

    You may not have heard of Huawei before but if you check any mobile site, you will find all the best wireless dongles are made by Huawei so they know what they are doing.
