Rated 3.3 out of 5★ by 216reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Low Memory I've had a few issues with apps hanging up, no big deal it happens. However I've been quite disappointed with it's memory. Granted they give you a 4 gb sd card with the phone it's practically useless. Most if not all the preloaded apps I can't transfer to the sd card so already out of the "box" it's low on memory. I had Facebook and other apps installed but then the phone had an error and no longer recognized that the apps were installed. I believe most of which I had already moved to the sd card to free up space on the phone. Now I can't re-install Facebook as I keep getting an error. I've had issues with the LG Optimus S and hanging up on apps. However I've never had these kinds of issues that I'm having now with the Huawei.I'm not sure if this is specific to my phone or if it's an issue with the model of the phone from the manufacturer. I would proceed with caution when buying this model and test it out within the time frame given so that it can be returned if you encounter similar memory issues. I rated it as a mid level on value due to the potential it has to be a decent android phone with some of the bells and whistles. Granted you won't get the best camera quality, flash capability, or a 3D screen. However if you like things such as Facebook, E-mail, Calendars, small web searches, GPS, phone calls of course, texting, and a decent little camera than this phone will work for you. 11/19/2012
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Good for making calls only. Bought two of these phones on 12-6-2012. The phones work off the verizon network which is very good in our area. For making calls, this phone worked very well, but for anything else, it does not have the RAM or Internal Storage to do much of anything.The phone does not have enough internal storage to add very many new apps. Pre-installed apps cannot be moved to the memory card to free up internal storage. The phone fills up fast when doing basic text messaging and using the mobile web browser. I found that when the browser was running, I could no longer receive text messages as the internal memory was full from the browser cache. I had added 6 contacts to the phone but found it difficult to add more if a couple of apps were running. 6 days after owning the phone, the browser kept quitting. This was due to a couple of apps, that I had downloaded, were using memory and internal storage space. Basically, the phone can only run the apps it came with, adding any more caused the phone to constantly become low on memory and internal storage. I did move all my apps I had downloaded to the storage card, but they still used space on the internal storage.Phone negatives are:1: Not Enough RAM.2. Not Enough Internal Storage.These two flaws really limit the phone and make it useless for any additional apps.Both of these limit the phone to only running a couple of small apps at a time, otherwise text messages could not be received or the browser would keep closing. I also had a few apps close on their own due to lack of available memory.For those that want to watch Netflix on this phone, it will not run. I tired it several times and it would never fully load to allow me to sign into my account. Just not enough RAM on the phone to run Netflix.I returned one phone and will be returning the other. I have already replaced both with a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim. The Samsung Galaxy Proclaim can run Netflix, has 512MB of RAM and 1GB of internal storage space. Much happier with the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim. I would recommend that those looking at the Huawei Ascend Y spend the extra $50 for the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim. Its a much better phone and can run more apps at once and not run out of RAM or Internal Storage as fast. I outgrew the Ascend Y in 6 days. I have had the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim for one day, but have found that it can handle what the Ascend Y could not. 12/15/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by First "Smartphone" I got this phone and the first one had several thin lines running across the very top of the screen. It's not a $300 phone so I was okay with having to return the first one. Once I got the replacement phone I was THRILLED! I love it. It may not have a lot of memory but it's perfect for me. I don't need nor will I ever use a lot of apps or games and it serves it purpose. 11/20/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Does what it needs to do The phone is great love being able to get on the internet fast for weather or news. Except the battery don't seem to last long if you are on the internet for a long time but i added a battery saver app and a task killer app and now the battery lasts forever... so if anyone does get this phone i would suggest you to find those two apps right away and download them they work together and will save your battery the task killer will shut of things you aren't using to save the battery and also shuts off the internet while not in use when is really handy 12/14/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great phone! Cant beat it! This phone is great! I was trying to decide between either this model or the galaxy because both run off the verizon network. I decided to go with this because it was 50 bucks cheaper at walmart and the only difference in both phones was the processor. Well let me tell you this phone is great and LIGHTNING fast! comming from sprint we had horrible service this is amazing. I think what alot of people dont know who have problems with the straight talk service is EVERY MODEL PHONE RUNS ON A DIFFERENT NETWORK! so you have to do your research! if verizon gets the best coverage where you live then go with a verizon phone, if at&t does then find a at&t phone. Finally if sprint does, same there find one that runs off the sprint network. If you find the model phone you like on website, if you read though the reviews on the phone people post what network each phone runs off of. That is the best advice I have to give, if you find one that runs off the network in your area then I cant see why anyone would not be happy with straight talk. we LOVE IT!!!!!! A+++++++ all the way thank you straight talk! :) 01/17/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by low memory Apps crash and close cannot install many apps due to limited memory 11/04/2012
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Ok phone if you don't plan on downloading.. I went with Straight Talk because a friend of mine had it and his phone was awesome! He had the ZTE Merit, but I didn't want to spend $130 on a phone and chose this one because it was close to the one that he had. This phone was pretty fast when I first started using it. Now that I have had time to download things to my phone, it is not running as fast as it should be and it causes me to force close my apps a lot. I have music downloaded on my phone and I was playing it through my home system one day and the music stopped in the middle of the song for no reason! It even opened up an app that I didn't need/want opened. Great value, but just keep in mind that you get what you pay for. You pay a cheap price, you get a cheap phone. The first time I dropped my phone, the back came off and it's a pain in the you know what to get back on if you don't have it on just right. If you want a smart phone this isn't the best one to choose. Great if you want something all touch screen, but don't expect to download too much on this phone. 11/28/2012
