Huawei Technologies has launched a series of touchscreen Android mobile phone in India market generally targeting the budget minded customers. So that means that among the affordable Android mobile phone providers like Spice and Micromax, Huawei series of IDEOS mobile phone would compete in that range. The Huawei IDEOS X2 is the cheapest among the Huawei Android touchscreen mobile phone but Huawei U8300 mobile extends limits to a high-end performances and features.
The Huawei Ideos Chat almost resembles to the Samsung Galaxy Pro mobile, i.e., Huawei Ideos Chat is a touch and type mobile with full QWERTY layout. Along with the full keypad layout, this means reduction in size of the display screen that you see. It has got 2.6 inches capacitive touch screen display with 154 ppi pixel density. It also includes optical trackpad, though you would be hardly using it.
This is 3G HSDPA capable mobile phone with a top speed of 7.2 Mbps for data. I am sure BSNL 3G would provide you that speed in this mobile. If you have Wi-Fi incoming signal then you can make use of Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g feature too. And if in case you don’t have Wi-Fi network then you can make use of GPRS with EDGE Technology. For wireless file transfer you can use Bluetooth v 2.1 with A2DP. You can connect your Ideos Chat with mobile using the microUSB 2.0 which is also the charging port provided with this mobile phone. Also included with this mobile is the GPS through A-GPS.
It’s provided with 3.15 mega pixel of rear camera with LED flash into picture would provide a better quality of images at 2048 x 1536 pixels. Yes, it’s possible to record videos at 15 fps but the videos wouldn’t be High Definition.
On top of that, Huawei Ideos Chat is a 3G mobile phone with HSDPA connectivity with a maximum speed of 7.2 mbps. You can use the Wi-Fi incoming signal to browse on web using the Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g feature. The Android version added to this handset is the Android 2.1 Eclair operating system, though you can upgrade to the newer version as the firmware updates are released.
You are also provided with social networking integration add-on, music player capable of mp3, wav, wma and eaac+ audio formats playback and mp4, wmv, H.263 and H.264 video playback. Along with that the document viewer capable of editing Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF is also added. The quick volume control keys are located on the left side bar. The mobile phone is available in various colors of Green, Yellow and Purple.
Importantly Google Market is just click away to browse, use, install, purchase and run thousands of Android third-party applications published from various developers. Google Market is the strength of Android and people love to see it.
With lithium-ion standard 930 mAh battery you would be able to get 450 hours of standby time and up to 5 hours of talk time which is good for an Android mobile phone. The Huawei Ideos Chat U8300 mobile is priced at Rs 8199. Along with the kit you get one set of handset, battery, travel charger, data cable for PC connectivity, Warranty card, headset, quick start guide, safety information and SD card.
I love its amazing touch response which is very soft and intuitive, usually not found in mobile phone priced at this range. The mobile function is slide lock which can be easily opened by pressing the ON/OFF button located on the top.
To sum it up, the touch buttons on this mobile is extreme plus point. With most of the features and specifications remained in check this mobile is worth buy at the price mentioned above.
