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)
