Huawei Ascend Y (U.S. Cellular)

 

The Huawei Ascend Y for U.S. Cellular has an attractive price, but you can get a much better phone for not much more.

Inexpensive. Comfortable to hold and use. Good call quality.

Extremely outdated version of Android. Slow performance. Low-res display. Poor camera.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Ascend Y has 140MB of free internal memory, as well as a 2GB microSD card preinstalled in the slot underneath the battery. My 32GB and 64GB SanDisk cards worked fine as well. There's a standard 3.5mm headphone...

Huawei Ascend Y review:

 

If there's one thing that U.S .Cellular does very well as a carrier, it's offer smartphones at very affordable prices. The Huawei Ascend Y Android handset costs only a penny in 3G areas, and $29.99 in markets with 4G.

Huawei's Ascend Y smartphone has an attractive design, a comfortable feel, and a very low price tag.

Its Android 2.3 OS is outdated, the camera is poor, and 3G data speeds are very slow. Call quality is lacking.

The Huawei Ascend Y is an inexpensive foray into Android, but U.S. Cellular offers better phones at similar costs.

"Not bad for a CHEAP phone"

 

I agree, it is underpowered. The camera is not fantastic either. BUT it will get the job done if you need a cheap phone to check email, browse the web, etc. I actually use the darn thing as a modem for my computer and have found that the phone actually...

basic smartphone functions for a minimal price!

Can be glitchy, lacks sufficent storage to install a bunch of apps. Sub-par camera functionality.

"This is a terrible phone. Buy the Samsung Axiom instead"

 

Hardly any. It is cheap.

Awful in everything but price. Low memory, small screen, bad battery life, slow processor, low resolution. Do not buy.
