Huawei Ideos X3, X5 and S7 Slim

Two Android phones and a tablet — that’s what’s else we saw at the Huawei booth earlier this week during CommunicAsia. Two of the top 3 Android smartphones, the Ideos X5 and X3, as well as the Ideos S7 Slim (predecessor of the MediaPad).

The Ideos X3 is the nicest-looking of them all, and reminds me of the HTC Wildfire, with its very thin frame of just 9.9mm.

The specs are somewhat entry-level but it’s got Gingerbread out of the box.

The Ideos X5 is more plasticky (didn’t like the shape and design) but is the more capable handset compared to the X3. It’s also running on Froyo and not Gingerbread, which is weird since the X3 is on it already.

The Ideos S7 Slim seems to be a re-fresh of the original S7 we’ve seen being giving away by Globe with Plan 999. The S7 Slim has an updated Froyo OS, higher battery capacity less the kick-stand at the back.

Huawei’s Android devices, both the smartphones and the tablet, are among the most affordable as we’ve seen from the first once that came to the local market. I’m sure these will find their way in the Philippines some time later this year.

X5 has pretty decent reviews. I’ve been waiting for this phone to gain spotlight here in the Philippines and thanks Sir Yuga for posting this article :)

I really do hope these handsets/tablet (including the ZTE Skate) will find their way here. Yugadeals maybe? :))

Nice.. more affordable options I think. Any ideas of the SRPs? Is this available for purchase on retail stores, or locked to Globe again?

The specs of Huawei Ideos S7 Slim looks promising. Although I’m not quite sure with its Froyo OS version. That’s upgradable, right?
