We have now the first ’4G’ phone from Cincinnati Bell which offers us a high level of performance for no more than 99.99 $ with a new two-year service agreement. And there is no mistake when we say performance because this Android-powered smartphone really has something to offer even for some difficult costumers.
First of all, we must mention the fact that it comes equipped with a 4.1 inches TFT capacitive multi touch with 16 million colors or 480 x 800 pixels resolution, a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and some very interesting Social Networking and Google Applications. Although at this moment it runs on Android 2.2 platform, we all expect to hear news about a future upgrade. And if you aren’t pleased by its 512 MB of RAM memory or 2 GB of ROM, Huawei offers you the perfect solution with its microSD card slot for memory expansion providing up to 32GB.
When it comes to the camera aspect, there is a 5-megapixel one with autofocus, LED flash, geo tagging or 720p HD video recording. And let’s not forget about its maximum resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels, offering not only decent videos, but also very clear pictures, while the secondary VGA front-facing camera is perfect for video calls. We have, present as always, some connectivity features – Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth with EDR stereo, A-GPS, or v2.0 micro USB, but the most interesting aspect is its download throughput of 14.4 Mbps and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA.
The 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery provides up to 5 hours of talk time or up to 240 hours of standby time. The proximity sensor for auto turn-off and accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate are also included in the feature’s list, as well as FM Radio with recording, Adobe flash player or multi format music player. And finally the portability aspect includes the exact dimensions of 4.8 x 2.28 x 0.39 inches or a weight of no more than 142 grams, so there isn’t a thing to complain about.
