Metro PCS caters to a different market than the big 4 carriers, and a this phone will get people to sign up for their service. To put things into perspective, you can get a comparble 3.5" screen android device at Walmart with Net10 or StraightTalk with 3G for the same $150 net price. However, at Metro, you get 4G LTE so it makes a difference.
IMO, Tmobile's $30 a month with 100 anytime minutes and 5 GB of 4G data on the Exhibit II is still the deal to beat.

I would never even consider buying such a low end phone (personally, I'm waiting for whatever flagships T-Mobile releases at the end of the year when I'm eligible for my upgrade), but I must say that Huawei's phones always looks so elegant. Such a great form factor. I mean, this phone is beautiful. I would have bought it on looks alone...if this was 2-3 years ago when those specs were top-notch.
