First Look: Huawei Ascend II (U.S. Cellular)

1:06 /

If it's an entry-level Android phone for a rock-bottom price you seek, the Huawei Ascend II costs just a penny if you sign up for a two-year contract.

Hey everyone. I'm Jessica Dolcourt with CNET, taking a first leak today at the Huawei Ascend II. Now, this is a pretty entry level and for it's smart phone for US Cellular. It's running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it's got Huawei's skin on top of it. The screen is your basic 3.5 inches, pretty petite. It's got a 5-Megapixel camera and camcorder on it. There's no flash. Camera is pretty (medioker?) but it will get the job done. It's a little bit of a slower phone, with a 600 Megahertz processor. Times at feels a little bit laggy. So, why would you even consider this? One word, and that's price. Right now, with the new 2-year service agreement with US Cellular, the Huawei Ascend II will cost you one penny, off contract and it will cost you 139.99 and that is if you get it prepaid. So, you can check out the pros, the cons, the photos, and everything else at CNET.com. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and this is the Huawei Ascend II.
