N/ANO
RATING

Although touchscreen technology has certainly come a long way, there will always be a market for phones with hardware QWERTY keyboards. So no matter how common or seemingly old-fashioned, phones like the Huawei Ascend Q will always be in vogue.

The Ascend Q is said to be marketed towards the younger generation, who are more into mobile messaging than any other smartphone user segment. It uses a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen display and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread by default. Its other features include an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 2GB of storage, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, and microUSB connectivity.

As a smartphone, the Ascend Q is not one of the best. It has a slow processor and runs an older version of Android. However, it’s a very capable mobile messaging phone, with extra features such as a 3-megapixel camera and Muve Music. All things considered, it’s one of the best models in terms of value for money from Cricket.
