Great Job HUAWEI !

amir1975 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

This phone has released in 4 different versions around the world :
G700-T00 : China Mobile, Dual SIM, TD-CDMA
G700-U00 : China Unicom, Dual SIM, WCDMA
G700- U10 : International Version, Dual SIM, 2GB RAM, WCDMA
G700- U20 : a rare version, Mono SIM, WCDMA

I have U10 version, its my 19th Smart Phone after Big names like Galaxy S3, Xperia Z, iPhone 3gs, iPhone 5, etc ...
pros :
Battery life is really Great, with normal usage it lasts at least for 2 days. minimal usage makes it endure for 72 hours or more.

Display quality is really satisfying.

2GB RAM makes it a Master of multitasking!

Network antenna is great, even in blind spots

interface is too smooth

it has an interesting feature : you can select your SD memory as the default location for installing the Applications, you can easily copy big game data files (obb files) into the SD, and then install the APK on internal storage. by this way you can install more than 35GB of applications on your phone! (8GB internal, 5.4 GB user available / 32GB SD, after formatting 29.9 GB available) this feature cant be found on any other android phone!

cons :
Camera quality is not Great (some thing like Galaxy Grand or maybe worse)
Speaker phone (not loud speaker) is a bit weaker than normal.

Poor Phone

bboy1105 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Very nice screen, but very poor Android rom. Play Store and Apps crashing all the time, Phone Reboots at random moments. Suddently freezes. Wifi and GPS are fine. Resetting the phone to factory defaults does not help, tried that 4 times. Cannot recommend this brand. Huawei Service is poor and very slow. Took almost 2 months to get my phone back. And still the problem isn't resolved. Custom rom is not possible because Huawei has locked the phone. Tried MobileUncle Tools, but then the phone hangs on Startup. At random moments the phone calls my contacts, while it is locked at that moment.
