New Phone! Huawei Ideos X5

Hi dears,

About three weeks ago I got myself a new phone. I wasn't all that pleased with HTC Wildfire. I wanted a phone that has a better screen resolution and if it would be faster, that would be a little bonus.

I was checking Samsung Galaxy Ace but I got something better. I didn't like the feel of Ace, because it really feels like cheap plastic (I'm talking about the button on the lower part of the screen). And when I saw this beauty (Ideos X5) in the store I had to have it. Even better when I read its specifications.

And damn, for the price I paid for it (1€, because I got a 24M contract) it's more than worth it. 

Lets move on to some pictures and specifications. I absolutely love the big screen and the only bad thing is it's weight. It weights 130g, which you can feel after 30 minutes of playing Angry Birds.

The back side - I didn't bling it yet.

 I bought a casing on Ebay since I couldn't find anything big enough in our stores (that wouldn't cost a fortune).

I love the fact that I can play angry birds on it. On Wildfire they didn't work. Here they work fantastically <3. And before I never played games on the phone, haha.

The gallery view is also lovely (here an open folder, of some images I loved).

And the resolution is great! (480 x 800 pixels)

  1. Cool phone. I'm a Nokia lover myself.

  2. Marox79: I was too. My fav was Nokia E71 which I loved. But now I wouldn't go back to nokia at all. I love android too much.

  3. wow!! this is amazing! I love the looks great!!

  4. Super izgleda! Jaz sicer ne maram touch screen-ov, ampak bi se že navadila, hehe :) Fajn ga uporabljaj in naj ti dobro služi!

  5. Kul... zgleda da razsaja neka manija kupovanja telefonov :) js sm si tudi novega nabavla, ampak sem se odločla raje za Nokio :)
    Helena ima istega je tko?

  6. Alice: Thanks! I love the screen too <3
    With Love, Ana: Tudi jaz sem bila sprva totalno anti touch-screen, sedaj pa sem cisto prodana xD.

    Sanja: Ja, sem ga naprej jaz vzela in dala njej mojega prejsnjega (wildfire), drugi dan si je pa sla iskat istega :D. Oz nekje v razmaku par dni.

  7. Moj fante ima takega. Sej vredu izgleda...ampak da moraš pa baterijo vsak dan polnit, to je pa too much. Ostajam pri svoji ''čokoladki''.

  8. Nihrida: Saj pri wildfire-u ni bilo nic drugace. Ce ne delam nic mi zdrzi tudi 3 dni. Sicer pa 1 dan, ja.

  9. nmj..huawei... kero ime:)
    Zgleda pa super:)
    Sicer pa sem z svojim galaxy S zelo zadovoljna( z baterijo in vsem...zdrži 3 dni brez problema, če se igram z njim)
