    Some people are saying that Huawei has confirmed that it will have a dual-core processor but I highly doubt it only because the processor that's listed is identified as a single-core processor. But I don't really think it matters because the score that it got from Neocore was slightly better than the Samsung Galaxy S II and that's amazing!

    Yep, from what I've read it's a single core, but thats a monster of a single core! I hadn't realized it could hang with the Samsung GSII. That IS amazing considering thats almost universally regarded as the highest-end phone in the world right now!

    Does anyone know if the Glory will be carrying a front facing camera? I don't know where I read this, I am hoping they do, even if they don't I still think it'll be an amazing phone.

    From what I've seen, I don't think it has a ffc. It does seem odd, given the otherwise high end stats, but not a big deal for me.

    Take a look at the picture of the front of the phone in my original post. In the notification bar it says 1-9-25. Could that be a hint it will come out on September 25, 2011? Hmmm...

    Yes, it does.
    And 8M rear camera, and flash.
    It also allows to save the "normally exposed photo in addition to the HDR version" (High Dynamic Range).
    For video, it has 4 quality settings, high, low, MMS and YouTube.

    Honor/Glory

    "According to Huawei, the Honor will come with “Android 2.3 or above” – this may mean the company plans to upgrade it to Android Ice Cream Sandwich when it’s released. Other features of the handset include a 4 inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 1.4GHz processor, 8MP rear camera, 720p video recording, and a 2MP front-facing camera – all in a 9.9mm thin case.."


    Huawei Honor U8860 runs Android Gingerbread, might get Android Ice Cream Sandwich Unwired View

    Sweet. 2mp for the ffc. Things are shaping up nicely. I really hope Cricket gets the black one this time instead of the white like the Ascend 2.

    ^Agree.

    I am too impatient. I check everyday to see if it has been released even though it is supposed to be released in November. :]

    I thought the Ascend II only came in white and the black was the Sonic. It would be nice to have the option to choose from black or white but I have a feeling that Cricket will only get it in one color. I think the color option would be available overseas where it's dubbed the Honor.

    Though the Messenger Touch came in both white and black, why the hell wouldn't this?

    When they first showed the Ascend 2 they had a black back, but by the time Cricket got it, it was white only. It would be nice to have a choice, but if they only get one color I hope it's black. It wouldn't stop me from getting it or anything, though.

    Black does look better but imo that black looks like a cheap plastic though. Flat black wasn't a good idea, the gloss black would have been better.

    It's definitely a nice phone, and in many ways it's an iPhone 3G clone (the physical look and to some extent menu behavior).
    It feels great in the hand (size / weight), and looks really nice with the semi-transparent, epoxy like case.
    I really wanted to try the camera (8MP), but there's a HW/SW glitch on mine which causes the image to be inverted and there's no button to actually take the shot :)
    If there are specific questions I can try to answer.

    How's the led flash, is it useful for pics especially in dark/shadow areas?
    Can you also use it for a light similar to what htc does?
    How is the screen, does it feel like its easily scratchable?
    Does the ffc take decent pics?(if it is a ffc)
    how's the sound quality on the external speaker(?) Loud enough to listen to music?
    As well as the speaker for when on a call.
    Oh and
    How's battery life?

    :)

    I'd actually rather have a flat, textured, plastic instead of the shiny. The high gloss plastic shows every fingerprint as soon as you touch it, and gets scratches when you set it on a table or whatever.

    Questions? Of course I have questions!;) If you have this phone already, I'm guessing you must work for Cricket or Huawei, or at least have some connections, so do you know;

    1.what is the release date?

    2.will it come in black, or white only?

    3.what version of android is it running? (i.e. 2.3.3 or 2.3.4)

    4.is it extremely fast with no lag? It should be, but you never know. Some people even reported lag on the HTC Sensation.

    5.I don't think it's vanilla Android, so what is the "skin" Huawei put over it like? Does it have Swype?

    6. Does it seem to have strong 3g and voice signal?

    7. I know it has a glass screen, but do you know if it is Gorilla Glass?

    Sorry so many questions, but you offered!:p

    Thanks!:D

    The main screen of the phone itself will get finger prints and could possibly scratch depending on the screen. Despite the texture, it will scratch because its made of plastic.

    Hmmmm
    Just thought, how cool would it be if the "glass" gloss case came in that gorilla glass, complete scratch resistant but would be slippery one.
