The $180 Huawei SnapTo is a no frills budget smartphone
Hey, I'm Nate and today we are checking out the [UNKNOWN] Snap 2. This is an LT smartphone that is trying to spruce up the low end of the mobile phone market.
You can pick up one unlocked for $180.
The snap 2 looks nice enough, if a bit plain.
The bezel around the screen isn't too thick which leaves plenty of room for the five inch display.
It only has a 720P resolution, which of course pales in comparison to the pricier phones you'll see out in the market.
But all told it's a decent screen.
Photos and images look good.
and while the offset viewing angles aren't especially wide, colors don't shift when you tilt the screen around.
The SNAP 2 name, comes from the 5 megapixel cameras focus snapshot mode.
Press the down volume button twice when the phone is locked, and it will snap a shot of whatever you're looking at.
The camera isn't exactly spectacular though, and doesn't capture motion on the
[UNKNOWN] that [UNKNOWN], which defeats the purpose of that ultra snapshot mode.
The phone is a quad core, [UNKNOWN] Snapdragon processor.
Performance is fine.
And in their trouble getting around the interface, and i've been doing a lot of testing on the new mobile game.
Does not [UNKNOWN].
Which works well.
There's only a measly eight gigabytes of storage, but you can pop off the back cover and add a micro SD card for a bit more room.
The phone also runs [UNKNOWN] with customized version of Android 4.4 Kit Kat Menus and icons look a little different from stock android but it's generally pretty easy to get around.
There's no app drawer like you'd find in a normal stock android phone though which I've found really annoying.
And that's Huawei SnapTo.
It's a pretty basic no frills device but if you're looking for LTE and don't want to pony up for a contract device 180 bucks is a fair price.
There are, as expected, compromises so you're going to wanna read my full review before you pull out your wallet.
I'm Nate, thanks for watching.
