Default Huawei ideos X6

There does not seem to be a dedicated room to this awesome looking phone, so I thought we could all meet up inside here.

To me this looks like a dream phone...

• Stock Android
• Nice enough design
• Good camera and connectivity
• Good screen

And i'm hoping
• Good price !

To me, it's kind of a Desire HD with stock android.

Of course, it's by a lesser known brand... and I do tend to like HTC build quality... but i'm really not after SenseUI phones anymore (not that there is anything awfully wrong with it, but the inconsistencies and slow updates do really bug me) and the Nexus S (with no SD and high price point) is not really what i'm after either.

What do all you guys think?

Do you think the DesireHD (with SenseUI) is still better? Might Huawei be slow with updates anyway? And if its a similar price, do you all think the Nexus S is better then?

I agree! It's a beautiful new phone and I'm anxious for it to be released here in the US.

Cricket is going to be one of the Carriers for this phone, as was announced by Matt Stoiber, V. President and General Manager of Devices, just a couple of days ago in Vegas.

I'm sure it will be reasonably priced compared to the other androids offered by the 'contract' carriers.

It will be offered at a much lower price than the Desire or the Nexus S.

Huawei is dedicated to offering a similar product at a more reasonable price.

X5 (where I've moved your query to based on "I'm hoping a Moderator will see this and create a Huawei IDEOS X5 topic in the Phones forum") or X6 (the topic OP title)?

Ok.. I'll move this thread to the proper forum once it's created, Jazziette.

For now, perhaps we should leave it here rather than put it out in the generic Android Lounge area. I'll PM the admin and see if he'd like to begin a new device forum.. I'll post back in a bit.

Yes, X6 is the 'higher end' phone. A Phandroid page on it exists - but clicking the 'forum' link results in a 404.

I'm hoping this phone comes to the UK soon. I read Europe will have it soon so hopefully that means us. Otherwise I presume an import will work fine as long as I go unlocked?

I hope so. If they do end up similar price then they are then much more evenly matched and harder to choose between. But the SD could be the tipping point for me. I intend to use this as my main Mp3 device, and 16GB is less than I have in music.

Its frustrating how little details we have on it isn't it! Price being the big question, along with more carriers (Cricket is a good start)

On second thought I'm going to get this thread out of the X5 forums and into the Android Lounge; it could be a day or so before we get an answer on the new forum (very, very busy admins lately, please understand).

Stoiber says the X5 is going to retail for about the same as the Huawei Ascend ($159)

So I don't think the X6 will be that much higher. Some maybe but not all that much....not like $600 or anything. hahaha

Thumbs up

You're welcome.

It'll probably be slow in growing here.. but it will as more and more Android users discover this device.

One is a smaller midrange phone with a 800mhz processor (X5) while the other is a larger high end model with a 1GHZ (X6)

The X5 also sports a rounder design while the X6 has a nice square look.

In my eyes - they are like the HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire. Similar, but different audiences. (And both look better than the Wildfire).

There are several differences. It's a different design for one thing (bigger screen) and it has the latest flashplayer. I'm not sure what all the differences are but it appears to have more horsepower. I'm going to wait for the X6.

(We should be getting paid by Cricket and Huawei! :P )

I'm afraid that I mistyped! Corrected above now.

X5 = round
X6 = industrial rectangle look

I like the X6 myself

I hear that T-Mobile is going to get the new X6!

I wonder if Stoiber (with Cricket) just hoped they would or if their contract fell through!

I live in Sweden and I've heard different stories about when it will be released here. On GSM arena it says may 2011.

A guy on a swedish android forum told me that the swedish huawei support told him that it will be released here in 1-2 month.

I have called the huawei support myself and ended up talking to the international support. The guy over there told me that it will be released around this summer.

I'm really interested in this one but it's quite frustrating not to know when it will be released :P

Well, I am getting paid by Cricket and am shocked that no one told me we were going to be offering this phone! We were told far in advance that we would be carrying the Curve, Zio, and Ascend. I guess so we would be prepared to add more EVDO backhauls. I need to do some investigating to confirm we're getting this X6. If so, I am so getting one!

Hi Samurai! I know just what you mean. During the CES there was a release by Cricket's VP of devices that they would be carrying the X5 and the X6, but it appears now that this might have been wishful hoping on his part.

(Cricket is a US provider who is carrying the Huawei Ascend.)

Now I have learned it is a GSM phone. I know this doesn't help you, but Cricket is CMDA so now I don't know when it will be coming to the US but when it does come it will be offered by T-Mobile here.

This phone has received a huge response and is already in huge demand. Yesterday I compared it to the Samsung Fascinate and was shocked at how well it stacked up.

Hope it will be coming your way soon. If you hear anything let us know!

Hi Junior! During the CES your VP of Devices, Mr. Stoiber, was interviewed and indicated you are going to be getting the IDEOS X5 for sure and he went on to discuss when your company gets the X6. I will see if I can find the link to the interview.

Unless, Huawei plans to offer the X6 in CMDA and GSM both (as the iphone now does) I don't see Cricket getting it. It was just FCC approved and T-Mobile is going to be carrying it.

Yeah...it would be nice if they kept you guys/gals better informed! LOL

I want the X6 too....but I may have to settle for the X5.

Great company you work for !!!! I love Cricket, even with it's lousy customer service!!! But I know they try!!! (hope you aren't in cust svc...forgive me if you are. )

I hear on occasion that our customer service needs work in areas You can pm me your experiences detailing what you didn't like and I will send that up the chain! We love hearing feedback. Regarding the X6 though; Matt Stoiber's word is usually golden when it comes to what we will be offering, so I'm looking forward to the X6. The X5 just isn't as attractive to me. But alas, I will take what I get as my handset/service is provided.

I feel the very same way, Junior! The X6 has me really excited!

You serious? Have a source link?

This will be interesting if it's true because Huawei's self-branded phones are practically running vanilla androids and no bloatware, which makes it perfect as a developer phone.

That was just a 'tongue in cheek' remark I made because the X6 has some very nice specs. I'm sure if I had it I would want to root it so that I could customize to my heart's delight!

Cricket is going to be one of the Carriers for this phone, as was announced by Matt Stoiber, V. President and General Manager of Devices, just a couple of days ago in Vegas.

I'm sure it will be reasonably priced compared to the other androids offered by the 'contract' carriers.

I'm hoping a Moderator will see this and create a Huawei IDEOS X5 topic in the Phones forum.
You mentioned Cricket announcing they were getting this phone at CES, but I can't find anything mentioned other than the X5...have a source for that? Thanks.

Yes, here it is:

Cricket's New Smartphones from Huawei and LG: Hands-On - Terminal\cn-c114 ¡ª C114 - China Communication Network

Matt Stoiber, Cricket VP and General Manager of Devices talks about the upcoming phones at the CES Convention:

He doesn't specifically say that Cricket is going to get the X6. He talks about how they will be getting the X5 and then refers to the X6 as the U9000, which is what Huawei normally uses when talking about the X6.

Here is the full text of the interview with PC Magazine at CES:

Cricket's New Smartphones from Huawei and LG: Hands-On

Updated:2011/1/9 11:48
Tags:Cricket|Smartphone|Huawei|LG|Sprint|Wi-Fi|BlackBerry|4G|LTE
Budget carrier Cricket has an aggressive smartphone lineup for 2011. We checked some of them out.
The world is turning towards smartphones, and low-cost wireless carrier Cricket is turning with it. Cricket showed me new Android-powered phones from Huawei and LG, a Viewsonic tablet, and a new Samsung texting phone coming to the carrier later this year.
As a low-cost, prepaid carrier, Cricket had to wait for smartphone prices to come down before it could fully participate in the smartphone revolution, vice president and general manager of devices Matt Stoiber said. But affordable Android phones are now the norm, and Cricket's customers are demanding them, he said. Cricket's Android service plan runs only $55/month, less than the major carriers charge.
The LG Optimus is coming to Cricket during the first quarter of this year, Stoiber said. Cricket's version of the Optimus is just like the hot-selling Optimus for Sprint, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS: a perfectly finished, beautifully performing low-end Android phone that has similar specs to other affordable phones, yet somehow feels smoother than they do. Cricket's version is silver, with a 3.2-inch, 320x480 screen and a 3.2-megapixel camera. It's going to be more expensive than the $129 Huawei Ascend, Stoiber said, but I know that I'll be recommending people spend the extra cash.
A little later in the year comes the Huawei X5, which I saw at Huawei's booth earlier this week. This Android phone will replace the Ascend with "similar retail pricing," Stoiber said. If that means consumers are getting an 800Mhz smartphone with a 5-megapixel camera for $129, that's going to be a stellar deal. When I handled the X5, I was more impressed by Huawei's upcoming higher-tier U9000. But if the X5 comes in below the Optimus on price, Cricket users are going to have an interesting choice between Huawei's better specs and LG's reliable finish.
I didn't see this next smartphone, but Cricket plans to carry a Samsung Android phone with a 3.2-inch screen within the next few months as well, Stoiber said.
"Smartphones will be a good, better, best scenario," he said. Stoiber also pulled out a dual-core, Viewsonic Android tablet that the carrier will be bundling with a Wi-Fi hotspot. The tablet will be Wi-Fi only – you have to use it with the hotspot. That's because Cricket wanted to bring the tablet to market quickly, Stoiber said. The tablet uses a 1.2Ghz dual-core Qualcomm processor and will run the Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" OS, not the recently announced "Honeycomb" tablet OS. The tablet has a 1024x600 screen and will have a 3-megapixel camera, Stoiber said.
Other new Cricket phones for the first quarter include the sub-$99 Pinger 3 (no, there was no Pinger 1 or 2), a classy, BlackBerry-like texting phone from Samsung, and a simple flip phone from Kyocera. Cricket will have two simple clamshell phones and a bar phone for sale at all times, although the carrier's focus now is on texting and smart phones.
I also got an update on some other Cricket products. The carrier's groundbreaking Muve Music service—which is as close as we're going to get to Spotify in the US, at least for now—is going to appear only on the Samsung Suede for a few months, and then will come to at least one Android phone by midyear. Cricket will be able to upgrade at least some existing Android phones with Muve.
Speaking of upgrades, the Sanyo Zio—which runs an unforgivably old version 1.6 of Android—will get a boost to 2.2 soon, Stoiber said.
Looking forward, Cricket is definitely heading towards 4G LTE. While the carrier won't introduce LTE until later this year, they're already thinking about what kinds of smartphones and service they want to offer—maybe phones with bigger screens and streaming media, Stoiber said. The "cost curve" of LTE phones is coming down faster than expected, which is speeding up Cricket's LTE efforts, he said.
Cricket, the nation's seventh-largest carrier, currently has about 5.4 million customers.

Yeah...I agree! I think a lot of it is wishful thinking on my part, in retropect. But at the time I did interpret it to mean that Stoiber thought they would be getting the X6.

I'm still hoping they do!

You might get your wish...a survey just went around to some Virgin Mobile customers asking what to name VM's next phone, and the phone's description matches the X6 exactly, except for CDMA, which is no biggie to switch for Huawei.

You might be interested in a long unboxing video for the Thai version of the phone, known as the WellcoM A99

That was a very LONG 20 minutes but it was worth it! Thanks!

Interesting because this phone looks exactly like the U9000 or IDEOS X6.

And it really makes me wonder if it is a knock-off by Motorola who used to have a relationship with Huawei and Huawei made all their phones for them (with the Motorola brand of course) and now they have split and Huawei is suing them for Intellectual Property theft.

Hmmmmmmmmmm......makes one ponder indeed!

Just got this phone the other day. It is know here in the Philippines as Magnum HD A400 by Cherry Mobile.

It is also known in other countries as:

CSL Spice M410 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OljUHqNau4c

ViewSonic ViewPad4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx6e3nyrvDo

WellcoM A99 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3lRFcjTYXU

and Huawei IDEOS X6.

Got it for around $420 open line (No Contract). Comes with a free 4GB Micro SD, a Bluetooth headset and best of all..... an Android doll (LOL). Loving the phone so far though some little issues:

* ramdom restarts.
* The lower part of the unit gets hot when charging (while some users say that they experience it when playing 3D games). This causes the soft keys under the screen to be unresponsive, specifically the back and search buttons.
* GPS takes some time before it can lock with the satellites (compared to my Galaxy Spica)

The issues I mentioned does not happen frequently so its still a good smartphone for me.

Does anybody know if these devices will be 4G compatible? I imagine they would since Cricket needs devices that are 4G when for when their 4G LTE network comes out.

If this turns out to be Virgin's next phone, they indicated it would likely not have 4G...but it's not impossible, I suppose.

Thanks!! That does appear to be the X6 under different brand names. Appreciate your reviews and youtube links.

It is looking like here in the U.S. the X6 is headed to T-Mobile. Sad news for those of us who currently are using phones like the Huawei Ascend and looking to upgrade to another Huawei phone.

I'm almost positive the X6 will be 4G capable. It would have to be for T-Mobile to put it in the lineup as it would have to compete with phones like the Samsung Galaxy S that are already 4G capable and T-Mobile is huge on 4G.
