    It's just Huawei has a bad reputation for quality. That don't use good quality parts. They don't design well. They take advantage of their customers' ignorance.

    Like the LG Optimus and Huawei Ascend both came out at the same time, in late 2010. (LG Optimus was Metro's first Android)

    • But the Optimus had 2.2 Froyo, while the Ascend had 2.1 Eclair.

    Why? Both companies had access to the same "free" software. Froyo had been out for six months by that time. Showed laziness on Huawei's part.

    • The Optimus had 600 MHz CPU, while the Ascend had 528 MHz CPU.

    OK, you can make an argument that slower CPU made the phone more affordable. I'll even give you that one.

    But... the REAL difference was

    • the LG had 512 MB RAM, while the Ascend only had 256 MB RAM.


    It ran sluggishly, couldn't play Angry Birds... It was badly designed. Huawei cheaped out and/or was incompetent. Just a little extra RAM would have made it a MUCH better phone and wouldn't have really raised costs. Huawei knew that, I'm sure, but didn't care. All they cared was that it turned on. They didn't care about user experience.

    Almost every Android since 2010 has had 512MB RAM. But they put in 256MB RAM. And if they had put Froyo on from the beginning, it would have at least managed that PUNY amount of RAM better. (Many months later, they supplied a Froyo update but it could have come with it from the beginning.)

    Think of vehicles. It's like selling a pickup truck with 90 horsepower and tires that are only good for 1,000 miles. (if you don't know about cars, most pickup trucks have 250 hp or more -- for hauling cargo and towing -- while a sub-compact like the Toyota Yaris has just 106 HP. A few cars may have a little less HP, but not many, and you sure wouldn't manufacture a pickup truck with 90 hp and 1,000 mile tires. There's a certain minimum standard you expect when you buy a "pickup truck". The only people you would be able to sell to are people who don't know ANYTHING about vehicles, and then they would have a very bad user experience when trying to use such a vehicle as a pickup truck. Same with manufacturing an Android smartphone.

    Stuff like that (old OS, puny RAM) hurt Huawei's reputation. BUT, companies can change. In vehicle manufacturing Hyundai make a good turnaround and Kia is trying hard to do the same, after both were bashed early on for quality concerns. Let's hope Huawei learned a lesson and has done better with this LTE Android.

    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.

    the design is ugly and simple, on the other hand it looks like the battery life will be good. Agree Huawei does not put decent work into their phones. at least people who don't want to spend a lot of money will now get a 5mp camera and AOS 2.3 for a cheap price
    Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something.

    If it was a dual core proc and had decent internal storage it would be a good buy. Don't hate on a company for quality when Metro choses which hand sets to carry and they have chosen Huawei to be the low end provider along with ZTE however Huawei makes one of the best prepaid smart phone option. Great specs, good quality it only lacks LTE but that is because it was picke up by cricket I am sure they could do the same for Metro with a LTE radio as well. check out the Mercury here http://www.mycricket.com/cell-phones...i-mercury-m886

    Benefit of the doubt should be given till moment of truth when finally it reaches your hands i say the phone looks nize but i am curious about something and im gonna google it after im type this what is up with the dts technology i know it envolves audio but will have to see whats special about it.The back cover i like cuz it looks like its carbon fiber.

    never mind i searched and its suppose to be surrund sound quality like sound on mobile devices. dosnt really amuse me but ill give this company a point just for that.
