Not all phones need to have large touchscreen displays, always-on Internet access, or a large selection of third-party software. In fact, many users have absolutely no need for these and are perfectly content with more traditional mobile phone functions like text messaging and voice calls. For this, the Huawei U2801fits the bill.

It comes in an easy-to-pocket, candy bar form factor. Although it seems rather chunky at 14mm thick, it weighs only 90 grams so you can be sure that it’s very portable. On the front, you’ll find nothing more than a 1.8-inch QVGA display and alphanumeric keypad with a small number of navigational buttons. The built-in 0.3-megapixel camera with video capabilities is located at the back and an FM radio is added in for good measure.

Overall, the U2801 is a no-frills candy bar phone with simple aspirations. It looks like a decent pick for those wanting a basic device.

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

Terrible design

(4 months ago)

Nope. I switched to it on wind because they wouldn't take my L4N from Virgin. From circuitous ways of doing what should be regular and routine tasks, to silence or vibrate-only modes that also silence your alarms, there are many reasons this phone's interface is poorly designed. I'd like to sp... More

Horrible camera, and not a very good user interface

Absolutely the worst cell phone i've ever used (out of 5)

(2 years ago)

Got it from windmobile. Bad network sensitivity, slow and often stuttery user interface, and worst of all - battery is nearly dead after just 2 month of use, can't hold more that a day in stand-by, tends to discharge very quickly and unexpectedly. On the plus side, it is quite solid build and wor... More
