A solid value for MetroPCS customers

The Huawei Premia 4G may not offer the best in hardware or software, but what it does offer works well. The design is a bit plain and the materials are obviously from the bargain bin, but they fit the Premia's $99 price point. Beyond the design and feel, the hardware definitely functions as it should: the screen looks good, the signal performance is excellent, and the battery exceeded my expectations.

Short battery life and mediocre call quality

from Cnet (3 years ago)

Ordinarily, I'll put up with a lot for a rock-bottom price (even after rebate), and for coin-counters, having the power of Android at one's fingertips for a Benjamin up front is a really good find. However, since MetroPCS is selling a bundle of phones at the $100 price point at the time of this revi... More

Ordinarily, I'll put up with a lot for a rock-bottom price (even after rebate), and for coin-counters, having the power of Android at one's fingertips for a Benjamin up front is a really good find. However, since MetroPCS is selling a bundle of phones at the $100 price point at the time of this review, you'll have options.

Although I like the camera, the processor, and details like a nice large helping of RAM, the phone's short battery life is a major stumbling block for me and keeps me from recommending the phone fully. If you're seeking a handset in this price range, take a good hard look at the LG Motion 4G, which has some similar specs as well.

I've had this phone for almost a year and it works just as good as when i bought it. Don't get me wrong it has a little bug every once in a while but nothing serious that has stopped it from working. The battery is a negative for the phone and its not got a big enough screen for me, i watch alot of TV and play games on it. I love this phone it does everything the iphone can do and even the galaxy s4 but its cheaper can't beat that nice!!!

I've had this phone for almost a month now and I love it.I was on virgin mobile with an i phone but dropped it and the screen broke.Decided to switch carriers and got this phone i honestly like this phone better than the i phone and also i get good battery life with it.Two days was the longest charge i got and that was with texting and making calls.This phone also has a very speedy processor a 1.5 dualcore snapdragon processor the same processor as the galaxy s 3.the camera has tons of features including panorama and burst. I love this phone:) and for 159 its a steal. I have a friend who has the lg motion and it sucks compared to this phone.anyway check it out.

This cell sucks!!

(3 years ago)

I just got this cell 2 weeks ago, and already i had to go through 3 cell phones with this. Metro wont let me switch it with a different cell. The battery goes out so fast and when someone calls me I can hardly hear them!
