Looking for an affordable Android smartphone? Huawei has three to offer.
The X6 is the flagship model for Huawei's Ideos series. It features a 4.1-inch capacitive touchscreen and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash. It is powered by a 1Ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor and 512MB RAM. Navigation on the X6 is generally smooth. But the real draw is its price point, placed at S$499. Considering how other similar smartphones of the same caliber are priced a few hundred dollars higher, this makes the X6 one of the most affordable smartphones with above average specifications tagged to it. Unlike the earlier two devices, the X6 will be preloaded with Android 2.2 Froyo. Fortunately, Huawei did state that the X6 will be receiving the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update, albeit in Q4 2011.
