Huawei Impulse 4G (AT&T)

 

The Huawei Impulse 4G, AT&T's newest midrange smartphone, offers plenty of features for the price but mixed overall performance.

Good voice quality. Stellar battery life. Sharp, bright screen. Inexpensive.

Sluggish at times. Poor camera and camcorder. Buggy video player. Voice dialing doesn't work correctly.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions There's a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack on top, although the microSD card slot is located underneath the battery cover. Huawei throws in a 2GB microSD card to get you started, and my 32GB SanDisk card worked...

Huawei Impulse 4G (AT&T) review: Huawei Impulse 4G (AT&T)

 

If you want to jump in the Android pool like the cool kids but you don't have the money to shell out for pricey goods like the Motorola Droid Bionic or the Samsung Galaxy S II , you might want to consider a budget smartphone to help kick off your...

The Huawei Impulse 4G is a decent budget smartphone with a colorful and intuitive touch-screen display, 720p HD video capture, a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, and support for AT&T's HSPA+ network. It's also very affordable.

The Huawei Impulse 4G only has Android 2.2, and we experienced inconsistent HSPA+ speeds.

The Huawei Impulse 4G satisfies the basics of most Android phones, but its outdated software and inconsistent speeds keep us from fully recommending it despite its bargain price.

Huawei Impulse 4G Written Review by Sydney

 

It's not every day that you see a budget smartphone with 4G capabilities and a camera that captures 720p HD video.

Great processor performance; decent still-picture quality; decent battery life; larger display than on most low-end and mid-ranged Android smartphones

Poor video capture quality; 4G speeds in my tests were not that great; ships with outdated version of Android

For the price, it would be hard to find anything better than the Impulse.

"Slow, lags a ton, and restarts itself all the time."

 

Don't buy this phone....

Good Picture/Video Quality

Slow, Lags, Restarts it self, force closes most of my apps, keys on keyboard are to close together causing a lot of typos.

"Phone from Hell!"

 

After having 3 of these phones in 6 months please take my advice- avoid this phone like the plague! If I had read reviews before buying I would have saved myself a lot of trouble.

"This phone was a great phone when I got it."

 

I woke up to my alarm, when I walked up to hit snooze I touched my phone, it was frozen, and when I hit the magnifying glass (Search) button it cracked from heat, I turned my phone over, popped open the back, the battery fell out in to my hand, and...
