Smartphones are taking over the mobile phone scene, with budget conscious devices playing their part in bringing the expanded functionality of these devices to the mobile masses. TechSmart reviews one such phone, the Huawei IDEOS X5.
PROS
Very good and large display, good specs for budget device, pocket- and grip-friendly dimensions, 4 GB of storage.
CONS
Unprotected camera lens sticks out of the rear cover, camera lag, Android Froyo not the most up to date version of the mobile OS, and not the most affordable of the budget conscious Android group.
VERDICT
It might not be the cheapest budget conscious Android-powered smartphone available, but its good spec level also reflects that.
