Huawei Summit on T-Mobile USA, basic Android phone

If you happen to be over in the United States and in the market for a new Android smartphone, albeit a basic handset on the T-Mobile USA network, which wont hit your pocket for too much cash up front, you might like to give a new handset from the Huawei camp a bit of consideration, and that handset is the Huawei Summit.

According to an article over on Phone Scoop, T-Mobile USA has now listed the Huawei Summit for sale on their website and commands a reasonable price tag of $49.99 when singing up for the usual two-year agreement, whilst the suggested retail price for the handset is 249-bucks.

So what does the Huawei Summit offer the potential owner? Well the devices has a bar form factor and appears to be virtually identical to the Huawei made T-Mobile Prism, and offers basically the same specifications such as a 3.5-inch HVGA touch screen along with a 3.2 megapixel camera, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, WiFi with WiFi calling, a 3.5mm jack.

The Huawei Summit has a propriety operating system which is probably based on the Android platform, as the user manual states it has an Android interface by without Gmail, so possibly there’s no access to Google Play to get your apps, but the handset is rated M3 and T3 hearing aid compatible, and does come with Swype preloaded.

So there you have it, if you are in the market for a new basic handset you can purchase the Huawei Summit by hitting up the T-Mobile USA website if you are inclined to do so, although those specs wont impress many.

    I just got this for Christmas and this is literally the crappiest phone I’ve ever gotten. Bad internet, confusing, you need wifi for the internet?! Most phones I see today don’t need that. They make the phone look like a smartphone- yes its very attractive. But its a piece of junk. I cant even text properly, actually I cant text at all. Extremely crappy keyboard. no one has fingers that small. It cant even get apps! wtf?! Its a piece of junk. more like something you’d see from 2004.

  2. I have my Huawei summit paired with bluetooth in my car, but it won’t upload any of my contacts. I called their Huawei support and they told me to download google play for new apps for this feature. Wrong! It doesn’t support google play. Called them back and the manager at support told me that my phone is unable to “send” out my contact list. You kidding? I told him that if it wasn’t capable of doing so, why would there be a function menu to choose from? He said its there just to confuse me. WTF??!! Called them back a 3rd time and they finally told me the truth. They (at Huawei support) are more confused than I am. So if you’re in a market for a new phone and you’d like to be confused all day…this is the phone for you!!

    Believe me when i say that this phone is crap. I’ve had this phone for 6 months and i thought it was fine. The picture quality was horrible but overall, it was a decent phone. Then recently, i stopped being able to send texts or call anyone! I thought this was just me but it happened to my mom too! Please don’t get this phone, it is the worst phone ever.
