Huawei’s MyTouch Ascend Device Gets Hands-on Treatment

While Huawei’s MyTouch phone for T-Mobile has been known to exist, it’s been escaping the grips of many-a people up to this point. Engadget procured the phone, however, and posted a hands-on for all to see. The device is placed in the low-end to mid-range market with its 1.4GHz S2 processor, 4GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a VGA front camera, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 4-inch display. A spec-sheet lists it as having Android 4.0 but the unit handled only has 2.3.6 and a custom user interface. This device also features a nice spring-loaded slide-out keyboard.

    That’s a damn nice low end phone when compared to the high end phones of this time last year

      Ya but 2.3.6?  Disappointing.

      • james

        Yeah but aren’t there only three devices total on 4.0 or higher?

        • Magus2300

          Nevertheless!  =)

    pretty good spec for low end

    I think this looks a lot better aesthetically than HTC’s myTouch 4G and 3G slide phones.

    I’d buy that for a dollar


    With GINGERBREAD & a 1500 mAh battery,I’d have to see what kind of battery life this has.
    Otherwise,the specs are definitely acceptable & it’s a nice looking phone.
