    Okay so I Googled this and did not find any answer or solution.

    My Huawei Ascend WILL NOT play Draw Something. It will let me download it, but then I go to play it and it says:

    "Marmalade v6.0.5[319588]) This build does not support SW rendering, and the device does not have HW support"

    I have freed up memory on my phone, I have almost no apps to begin with except bloatware since my phone is unrooted.

    How the heck do I play this game? Is it just impossible?

    If it's impossible on my phone, is it possible to play on any other Metro PCS phone?

    no dedicated gpu. Its also very old tech and I'm surprised its even sold still. Tech wise it was obsolete when it came out 2 years ago. ;)

    Yeah I only got it like 1-2 years ago, it was my first smart phone. I thought it was great, but now it lags and I can't play good games on it, it just sucks.

    Yea the Motion should be a nice upgrade for ya then. I got use to 4.3+ screens etc etc with the Esteem and rock a GNexus now lol. No way I could go back to a 3.5 screen. ;)

    I think the Ascend screen size is perfect. Phones are getting so big now a days, it's ridiculous. How would you fit a giant phone in your pocket? Although I would not be okay with downgrading in size though.
