The Huawei Valiant is a pleasant-looking entry-level Android 4.1 smartphone.

Although the phone is a bit on the thicker side, it fits well in the hand, feels good on the ear, and is small enough to fit into a looser pocket.

You can see the phone's 0.45-inch thickness here.

This navy-blue, soft-touch finish makes the phone easy to palm.

There's no flash or front-facing camera with the Valiant, but the biggest issue is its fixed-focus shooter. It does have panorama mode and a few filters, and colors are attractive and bright.

Audio quality was nice and strong for both standard and speakerphone modes when I tested the phone in San Francisco.

Various themes and wallpapers inside help adjust its look.
