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.
