Cheap phone, great if original OS, may not work in 2014
I find Huawei M860 a cheap used phone suitable for our teen nephew, who loses them. Metro Pcs bought out by T-Mobile so these phones will cease to function as phones around end of 2014, though may still find use as mp3 or game player. Service provider changes cause some features to stop working, and several useful pre-installed apps fail to work, such as News & Weather. For low price, an okay android phone, and would buy again, at least till mid-2014. After that time, would look for sim-card phone to work on T-Mobile. A terrific feature of these older androids: you can sideload apk applications and store them on phone's memory card, while with newer phones this not possible due to new operating systems which require applications reside on phone itself, thus restricting number of apps user can keep active. On older phones with older OS, owner can have as many apps as his card can hold, save them, transfer them to his other phones, reuse them or reuse them. I recommend based on qualifications above.Read full review

Good Average Android Phone
This cheap android phone from Metro PCS is the first Android phone released last 2011, the phone works perfectly good except for the battery life which drains so fast even if you don't download so much applications. I remember deleting the applications thinking it would extend the battery life, even turning off the GPS but it didn't help. Good android phone for starters. The phone does not have a good quality pictures even if it's a 3.2 megapixel, video quality not so clear & crisp either. The other issue is the phone freezes a lot of times, even if I reset the phone to factory settings which I thought will improve the phone but did not work. The good issue is the speaker phone is excellent which I love about it especially when I am driving. If you're only after an average android phone, I would recommend this product, but if you want a better & excellent android phone you might wanna spend some more money to find a good one, so my overall rating for this product is only 3 stars, which is Average.Read full review

I would recommend this phone.
I purchased this phone not long ago and so far for the most part I am satisified. On the plus side the ascend is a good starter smartphone for cheap. Its excellent for people who are not up on the latest technology as far as the world of androids but want to learn. So its not too complicated. I didnt have a manual with my phone and was still able to navigate around it pretty well. That being said, this phone definitely has some downfalls. The biggest one has to do with it not being 3g eventhough its advertised. When I got my phone turned on by metro I was informed that my service is 1x instead of 3g because metro no longer makes 3g phones but it is still being advertised as such. I found that to be true because on the top of the screen it says 1x instead of 3g. Thats a huge downfall because without the 3g, the internet runs very slow and you can forget about playing youtube videos unless you have have time to wait a half hour to play one video. however the phone does offer wi fi and as long as that is connected or you find a hotspot, your internet should play just fine with minimum delays. Im still learning my phone and Im finding there are lots of apps available for those who like to stay busy which is good. I dont like that certain basic standard features are hidden like the alarm clock. I still cant find it. When it comes to deleting certain items, that can be difficult cuz its hard trying to find delete for certain applications and i noticed that certain features that used to be standard on any phone like a ringtone for your contacts now has to be downloaded through an app or else you wont receive that feature. The headphone port hole is too small for any standard headphone or attachment so it is useless to me. It could be that mine has a defect. Im not sure. The only other thing about the phone is it has poor battery life but im finding that is very common with android phones in general. But all in all a good handy device to keep you occupied for a reasonably cheap price.Read full review

Awesome product got it for 50% OFF THE PRICE
cute phone takes great pictures. easy to use. The only thing you have to be careful of is don't just leave it in your pocket or it might call someone by accident. It is easy to unlock.
