Android version and market relevance

In June 2009 Huawei company introduced its new smartphone Huawei U8230. This is a new model, which is running on 2.1 Eclair.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 2.1 Eclair already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

TFT touchscreen with a diagonal 3.5″ mounted on the front panel Huawei U8230, thickness 14 mm.

The battery in Huawei U8230 is installed on 1 500 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is inadequate, and you will miss one charge per day of active work.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important thing about cameras in smartphone Huawei U8230: main camera on 3.15 MP, frontcamera got 0.3 MP. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Huawei U8230 is installed 1-core processor on the chipset Qualcomm MSM7200A. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 0.256 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 16 GB.

Price for Huawei U8230: buy or not to buy?

So we told about not very cheap not very powerful smartphone Huawei U8230 with a small screen, conventional main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a weak battery.

All these characteristics in 2009 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in  2009 at a price of $270. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Huawei U8230, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Huawei U8230 is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
