Nice phone and found a phone case to fit
I purchased this phone on Black Friday for about $50. I was able to update it after setting it up, Im guessing it was an ATT update. The phone comes with Marshmallow 6.0.1 and it has asked for a lot of permissions. First phone I have used with Marshmallow, so it has taken me a little time to get used to it. Also my first Huawei phone and so far so good.
So far it has run smoothly and the battery life is excellent. I don’t play any games on the phone and rarely use it for music or video, so your battery life might vary. Its only dropped 35% in the last 13 hours…
The phone helped walk me through transferring my contacts, pictures, video and texts from my old phone to this one. ( wi-fi required ) I was thankful for that!
My biggest concern was where to find a case? Luckily the Walmart it was purchased from had a case made by Body Glove for the Huawei Ascend XT for $20.
I only saw 2 colors to choose from, black and dark purple (grape). Fits it really well and make me worry less. Its not the most fancy of cases but internet searching didn’t find anything.
Phone calls have been clear for the most part but I have noticed some calls sound kinda tinny coming through the ear speaker. As far as the main speaker its loud but doesn’t sound the best turned up all the way, it also sounds tinny to me.
The phone apps scroll up and down, I prefer side to side but not a deal breaker. It comes with a little bloatware but most can be disabled. It installed the apps I use really quickly from playstore.
It comes stock with the Google Sound Search ( widget) which recognizes music thats playing and names the artist and song. I don’t know if thats old technology but I thought it was pretty nice.
The camera offers a lot of options for taking photos and photos so far have turned out good. Ive included a photo of the case and package.
