A few minor setbacks doesn’t stop the Huawei Ascend to rise up from Cricket’s lineup

from CNET (over 3 years ago)

The Ascend is quite a package. It brings a 3.5-inch HVGA touch screen, support, and 3G and Wi-Fi. Build quality is nice, and the handset is sleek and attractive. Yet there are a few gaps in the feature set that you'll have to overlook. Huawei has chosen a 2.5-millimeter headset jack instead of the standard... More

Best of all, in some key ways, like call quality and the overall look and feel of the device, the Huawei Ascend doesn’t feel cheap

from Phone Scoop (over 4 years ago)

The Cricket Ascend is a decent smartphone, but when you figure in the low price of $130 at print time with no contract required, it’s even more impressive.

Harder than it has to be....??

(over 3 years ago)

The phone is probably great, if you know how to use all the features. : ) I'm having a very hard time finding a manual to learn how to use what should be basic features. So far, I can't figure out how to save a photo someone has sent me and I can't figure out how to set certain ringtones... More
