Cricket's Huawei Ascend II (left) is leaner, lighter, and more stylish than its predecessor, but it still only runs Android 2.2 Froyo, not Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Note: The handset we photographed is preproduction and may eventually sport Huawei's interface, not the stock Android experience as shown.

The Ascend II is a much slimmer specimen as well, which makes it feel more premium in addition to being more pocketable.

While the original Ascend had a 3.2-megapixel camera, the Ascend II gets upgraded to 5 megapixels.
