Description

Huawei Activa 4G is a rather modest Android offering that will set you back only $150 after rebate while still hooking you up with some LTE goodness. It sports an 800MHz processor and a 3.5-inch HVGA display. There is a 5-megapixel camera with flash on its back, and a VGA shooter up front for video chats. Not too impressive, we know, but hey, at least you get the Kung Fu Panda 2 movie pre-loaded. Android 2.3 comes out of the box.

Do you ...?

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 165 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
