Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Huawei Ascend Y220 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Huawei in December 2013. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Huawei Ascend Y220 works on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2013.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards. And we are very, very sorry, but Huawei Ascend Y220 does not support two SIM cards, so this smartphone has one minus more than other similar ones smartphones with support for two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Huawei Ascend Y220. On the front side of the case is located small Capacitive screen with diagonal 3.5″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 1 350 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Huawei Ascend Y220 has only one main camera on 0.3 MP. There is no front camera. If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then you hardly will be satisfied with the quality of these photos, because the camera is rather weak. We advise buying (well, or at least look) camera phones. This is smartphones with very good cameras on the market.

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Huawei Ascend Y220 has 2-core Mediatek MT6572M. RAM here with size 0.256 GB.

The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 0.512 GB and there are no other options to choose from. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSD up to 32 GB.

Price for Huawei Ascend Y220: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Huawei Ascend Y220 got into our price segment “Ultra cheap smartphones up to $100” and began to be sold in March 2014 at a price of $60. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Huawei Ascend Y220 is not a very fast smartphone with a small screen and a conventional main camera. And to all this we add that the battery, unfortunately, is weak here.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
