There are days when I feel like a complete dinosaur, particularly when I’m talking to friends about cellphones. Why? I might be one of the last holdouts on the planet but I don’t have a cellphone. (I know – it’s shocking — I get that all the time!).
In the past I had a cellphone but there were some things that drove me crazy. I found that I was paying a lot for something I barely used and that there were only limited things that my phone could do anyway. So why bother?
What I desperately wanted was a smartphone of some type. And I did some serious research. It ended with me being incredibly discouraged. I am frugal and I just couldn’t justify pay huge charges every month for something that was a necessity. And I thought that was the end of it. Nothing was going to change, right?
When I heard about the Huawei mobile phones, I was intrigued. And the difference? Huawei makes smartphones at a smart price! I was immediately drawn to 2 facts: that the Huawei costs only $80 and provide access Android apps and with the Huawei you don’t have to be locked into a subsidized 2 or 3 year contract!
When I tried out the Huawei Ascend Y201 — which is available at Virgin Mobile (and partner retail locations) — I wanted to start playing immediately!
- 3.2 MP built in camera
- Video Recorder and Player
- Wi-fi connectivity
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Touch screen
- Android 2.3 operating system (which allows access to over access to over 700,000 apps!)
and much more!
I tried out the camera and found that it’s easy to use and produces crisp pictures. It is easy to download apps and is small and sleek so it is easy to tuck away until I need it!
It’s a hit with me! I am finally going to head into the 21st century with a Smartphone connected with Virgin Mobile thanks to Huawei!
While the Huawei 201 is available at Virgin Mobile (and partner locations), you can also pick up, at the same great price of $80, the Huawei Ascend Y210 which is now available at Walmart’s 379 retail locations nationwide on the TELUS network.
