Huawei Ascend Y210

As i mentioned in my last post, i had some battery problems with my old phone so i decided to buy a new one. I wanted something cheap, that will meet my needs:

  1. screen a little bit bigger than 240X320
  2. longer lasting battery
  3. usual smartphone-related activities – call, message, taking pictures, videos, using calendar and ocasionally browsing.

I found out that ElGiganten were having Huawei Ascend Y210 for sale, for 300dkk (~40euros). I said this has to be it. I read some review so i knew what to expect. The only thing i can complain about is the RAM issue (256mb)

Things to complain about: too little RAM (256mb) which makes a lot of apps hang but not for long. After quiting an app like Gmail or Youtube it usually needs several seconds to load up all the items on screen. Facebook and Skype won’t even run on it.

Things to be happy about: it meets my above-mentioned requirements, battery lasts for 5 days on normal usage (no wifi) and the screen gives me a totally different sensation than my last phone.
