Exclusive Vodafone deal. Interested? Read on...

Looks like a decent enough deal to me and spec, considering the hooplah over cheap windows phones atm, Android flexes its muscle to prove its still king. :p

Don't expect this trial offer to stay open for long. I'll keep an eye out when hotukdeals jump on the bandwagon. But be grateful you got the deal here first! ;)

Huawei the lads!! :D

Great deal, promoted to the front page :).

Treab  Apr. 11, 2012 at 19:04

Seems decent enough. but i wouldn't say its the deal of the century ;)

Pondlife  Apr. 11, 2012 at 19:11

Beats the Ace?

Treab  Apr. 11, 2012 at 19:18

Yeah but the ace has something this doesn't...

'Samsung' That holds weight... this phone is a relative unknown the overlay could be crap the phone could be cheaply made... huawei needs to build a brand before its worth its premium.

Treab  Apr. 11, 2012 at 19:19

Basically i will wait for a review ;)

Pondlife  Apr. 11, 2012 at 19:24

Well it couldn't be worse the TW on ICS from what I hear. ;)

They are using simple outlay that doesn't step on Android too much called Hap5. TBh I'd just put vanilla Android on it to appeal to people more. I mean a cheap 1Ghz Android phone with 2.5Gb free space and vanilla Android for £100 could have made it the new San Fran, for a while at least.

Thanks Matt. :D I'll check the vodafone site and put up a link from them soon.

Agreed with that bro. It would be truely unique in a way. but this could easily be the next SF at 100 its a good buy as a backup phone... defo something to keep an eye on... lets hope the price drops quick though :D it would be nicer still at 70 say ;)

According to that site, its got exclusivity for 3 months, so will take a while for a price drop. However, if we get a price drop when ICS updates comes along, that phone will definately be on my shopping list. :D

ooops

I dunno... however it may encourage other phones to drop in price still further... IM LOOKING AT YOU MR ACE... 99.99 indeed... should be 79.99 max by now.

SpeedyG  Apr. 11, 2012 at 19:58

Well Treab, I expect some Ace deals when the Ace 2 drops down soon.

I'm interested if the Galaxy W will get a Lumia 710 style big price drop since it has similar spec and Android may decide to do something about Nokia phones that enter the budget market with WP7.

Pondlife  Apr. 11, 2012 at 20:01

Such a phone at such a price could inspire a lot of people, could see ICS on it before Huawei's is done if it grabs right peoples attention.

Treab  Apr. 11, 2012 at 20:06

ooops

you disgust me ;) coming on here not being able to read :p

This phone means good news for those looking for a cheapish mobile which has more power than some laptops what 10 years ago?

Treab  Apr. 11, 2012 at 20:09

And to emma... PRETTIER... this is a mobile/tech site right ;) with lewis :p

humph and supposed to be teaming up with you to annoy the mods pfft.

Doesn't mean i like you ;) just hate the mods more :p especially matt... he was one of us...

My old hero 2 odd years ago was top of the range with its 512mhz processor... rofl.

SpeedyG  Apr. 11, 2012 at 20:41

^ 528mhz. :p

Have you used overclocking apps on it, Treab? Got it past 700Mhz with little problem.

Pondlife  Apr. 11, 2012 at 20:42

Which is still much faster than the ps2 had. oO
Which does explain why gta 3 is out on phones now. :)

me naah. Gave it to my niece now ;) sticking with my SGS2 a whopping 2.4ghz of combined power... (that to me is mad..)

That pond plus GTA 3 RULES... not as good as san andreas though.

SpeedyG  Apr. 11, 2012 at 21:07

Is it rooted Treab or just boring old Touchwiz ? :p

With poor ICS not doing well on it, there will be some great ICS ROMS for it.

It's stable at 1.5 dual core (Probably rooted) and has even run 2ghz!! oO
