    Huawei Ascend XT AT&T GoPhone on TracFone GSM BYOP

    Huawei Ascend XT 6 " H1611 AT&T GoPhone at Walmart for $150 and has it working on TracFone GSM/AT&T BYOP.

    It is a 6" 1.5 Hz octa-core with16GB internal storage (9GB free)/2GB RAM, Marshmallow, 720x1280 screen resolution, and takes nano SIM.

    This seems like a reasonable price for a 6" phablet with Marshmallow.
    If anyone here gets one, let us know what you think.

    Specs state that microSD maximum size is 32GB. That seems low for a new phone with Marshmallow.

    If you bought one and want to share your experience, please use this thread.

    Phone is $49 at Walmart for BF.

    I know some posted in other threads already, but figured we'd start a new thread for this phone.

    I think the number shown depends on the zip code the site things you are located in.

    Too funny .


    This could be helpful:
    https://www.att.com/devicehowto/inde...el=HuaweiH1611

    Questions I have:
    1. How much free internal storage available out of the box (of 16GB total)?
    2. What Huawei model common phone does this correspond to for people looking for cases, screen protectors, etc.
    3. Can this phone be rooted?
    4. How is call call, WiFi, camera, Bluetooth, signal bars/connectivity, etc.
    5. One person on YouTube comments from link above said it takes a 128GB microSD. Would like to seen confirmation on the biggest size working for posters here on HoFo, as specs say 32GB maximum.

    Getting a case for this handset was hard. I ended up getting one at Walmart for $20. I will try my 128gb card in it. I have a new 32gb card in it now.

    If you can post more information like a picture of the case/package or link to Walmart.com for the case, that would be very helpful. Thanks!

    Let us know how the goods and bads of this phone too .

    I got my unlock code today. You should get yours soon, if you haven't already.

    Same. I researched the phone before buying it but didn't think to look for screen protectors/cases. Only wallet cases are available online. Some screen protectors but no tempered glass. I called an AT&T corporate store and was told they don't carry the phone or any accessories for it. I either had to go back to Walmart and see if they had anything or look online. I found a Body Glove case at Walmart for $20. More than I wanted to spend but that was all I could find.

    The case is black and fits perfectly.

    $20 for a case, for a $50 phone? wow...
    I will wait I guess... I don't intend on carrying mine.
    For my Lumias 640 I ordered 3 cases from HK for $1.50 a piece early this year.

    You can look at it anyway you like: but for me, I would not have bought it for more than $50... or the Phoenix2 for more than $30 (which is similar to LG Tresor which I bought early in 2016 at HSN as a bundle for $60 with a $20/25 visa checkout discount).
    I should stop buying covers altogether, because I never broke/dropped one (knock on wood), and they retire early with me anyway (except for the Lumias which I intend to keep using for ever, until they die -because of their exceptional sound mostly-).

    SIM size

    1 setback:

    It uses Nano SIM, which means it cannot be moved around to be used with other (BYOP) phones that do not use Nano Sim.

    Sure it can - just get an adapter if you plan to move the sim around. There have been some posts on here of decent quality sim adapters available on ebay.
