T-Mobile Comet

The T-Mobile Comet is a rebranded version of the Huawei Ideos, an affordable Android phone. The Comet is free with a two-year contract, or you can get it as a prepaid option for $200.

Features

Despite being an entry-level device, the Comet ships with Android 2.2 and offers full wireless options. You also get a 3.2-megapixel camera, and the phone offers great call quality.

Design

The T-Mobile Comet features a compact, lightweight design and measures just 4.09 inches tall by 2.16 inches wide by 0.54 inch thick and 3.6 ounces.
The phone feels solid in the hand, but unfortunately, the plastic piece covering the navigation array at the bottom started peeling off on our review unit.

Picture quality

Picture quality was a bit dull and grainy, but images came out relatively clear and outdoor shots were better.
