Phone Scoop

Solid performance, outstanding voice performance, but camera stinks

from Phone Scoop

The Huawei Prism isn't ever going to be an iconic smartphone that everyone -- or anyone, really -- lusts over. It's not that kind of device. Instead, it hopes to provide a simple feature set in an inexpensive wrapper to those seeking the basic entry-level smartphone. In that quest, it succeeds.

The Prism is no stunner in the design department, and the middling specs will scare off anyone looking for even a moderately capable smartphone. What the Prism lacks in looks and extravagant software powers, it makes up for with solid performance in the core features.

This phone is cheap for a reason, its a very VERY low end phone and only really good for a short time.

I own this phone and right out of the box it gave me issues, I've traded this phone in many time for the same phone because it didn't cost much and i didn't have enough money for a good low end phone. The Huawei phones in general are very low end and in "better" terms are just right out crap. Sa... More
I own this phone and right out of the box it gave me issues, I've traded this phone in many time for the same phone because it didn't cost much and i didn't have enough money for a good low end phone. The Huawei phones in general are very low end and in "better" terms are just right out crap. Save yourselves the trouble and hassle and spend that little extra money to get something that doesn't suck. Less

I own this phone with wind mobile. First thing you need to do is root it and alter the start up apps. 1. Root phone (backup phone rom first) 2. Install swiftkey for better keyboard 3. Install go launcher for app folders and better looks 4. Install system tuner pro and alter the startup programs, adjust idle cpu speed to 420 and max and 600mhz *stay the same 5. Install juice defender pro *must be rooted to double battery life 6. Enjoy a phone that is every bit as good as the samsung galaxy S Email me if you have any questions about it. Its honestly a great phone if your not a gamer. I have an 8 gb sd card installed with around 80-90 apps and 4 gb of music. Phone still runs perfectly. Less

How to install
How do you root the phone, install go launcher, and juice defender pro?
