Price and value for money ; Capacitive touchscreen ; Good build quality

Small and low-res display ; No multitouch ; Sluggish performance

Huawei Ideos U8150

 

Huawei is a big Chinese Company with massive market share in their homeland. In Australia, they are about to take on some of the biggest phone brands in the world, initially with a cheap Google Android phone that competes head on with the HTC Legend.

One of the cheapest new phones on the market; Small; Sleek design
