ive handled a few huawei phones (the ascend 2 and the ascend x) at the local cricket store. i think i hurt the sales rep's feelings. the ascend 2 FC'd com.android.phone every time i touched the menu button, the rep said it happens all the time. i just laughed and walked out.
from other reviews and news it seems like huawei has nowhere to go but up. surely they cant get much worse.

Huawei and ZTE are strongly backed up by China government, and their infrastructure is top notch.
I see them fighting with samsung and apple in 2-3 years time

I can't wait to see how far Huawei will now go in the smartphone market if the company is able to release such great phones in such a short amount of time.

Dammit I still can't get past that name, shallow I know, but I hate it! Well good luck to them I guess. Cause if there's one thing California needs it's more hipster d-bags working at a design center in silicon valley. No but seriously.

This can only be a good thing. ZTE seem to have stepped off the gas and allow Huawei to overtake them recently. But if they both keep pushing it will be good for consumers.
