Great phone

Great phone for Cricket and for the price. The build quality is great, I dropped it and barely a scratch
Huawei's stock launcher is great, you might not even want to download a new launcher. The 4 inch display is great for gaming. The battery life is also great, only charge once a day.
Calls can be muffled at times, but otherwise really good.
You can feel the lag at times, but still really fast.
Upgraded from a ZTE Score to this and was well beyond worth it.

Cricket is now running with the big boys!!!

gigaware has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I am so glad I replaced my Ascend II with this. I was a little sceptical but Cricket got it right this time. The phone is the biggest so far with a nice 4" screen. The screen is same width as the Ascend II but taller. Its very vibrant and clear. call quality is very nice and I am always getting good signal. The screen is Multi-touch (FINALLY). CPU is running at an immpressive 1.4Ghz and rarely lags. Browser is excellent and supports ADOBE Flash, pinch zooming. Camera is EXCELLENT and for the first time in years, Cricket now has a camera phone with a FLASH!!! It also has a front facing camera for video chat!!! Graphics on this phone are amazing.....especially with a few games that come preinstalled or running live wallpapers. Texting is really good and accuracy is great. The only thing I can say that I dont like is the build quality. Its not cheap feeling but isnt the most solid either. Cricket (more like Huawei) finally has a phone that can compete with other mainstream carriers and in my opinion, their best phone to date. This is my 17th Cricket phone and I feel I can make that statement with accuracy. It may seem like the things I boasted about arent new to phones but for a Cricket phone,,,,its saying alot!!! BTW.......phone does NOT come with SD card or earbuds.
