Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Pushmail present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 with good recording features is really good for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510, however good the other features might be. Smartphones with larger memory is always preferred by me; this phone can't even hold images and videos which I save in a single week. The expandable memory of the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks great, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. Well, the frequency never bothered me so much with reading, but gaming on this 0.6 GHz device is a nightmare. I wouldn't recommend such a low RAM even for the most amateur gamer; in fact for anyone. No clue what's the point of storage which can't even make enough room for my apps, leave alone my books and games. Even if your smartphone offers good amount of internal storage, extendable memory never hurts and is good to know that there's room left if you need.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 3.2 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 very cramped. Yes, 3.2 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images. The internal storage in the Huawei Ideos X3 U8510 is quite stingy with the tiny 0.512 GB. I don't know what it is good for when it can hardly hold any of my media files.
