The Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5 is probably the oldest smartphone there is which is still in the market today. The device was launched by Huawei in December 2010 and if you are considering about age, the phone is now about 2 years old. However in term of specifications, the IDEOS X5 is not obsolete because some current phones today are still powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread.  The Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5 is available for sale online at Lelong for RM350 (US$112). Again, I would advise on potential buyers to check the authenticity of the device as well as the seller before committing into a sale.

Specifications wise the Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5 is powered by Android 2.2 Froyo but is upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. It has a Qualcomm MSM7230 800MHz processor, Adreno 205 GPU, 2GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM and an external memory can be expanded through a microSD card up to 32GB. The screen is a 3.8-inch offering 480 x 800 pixels in resolution (~246 ppi pixel density) and is protected by Scratch-resistant glass and Oleophobic coating. At the rear is a modest 5MP camera with a resolution of 2592х1944 pixels. The camera is equipped with auto-focus feature and a LED flash as well as the ability to shoot video at [email protected]

Other features include the following.

  •    Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate, Fingerprint-resistant surface

The main disadvantage of the Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5 smartphone is probably the OS. The highest you can go is Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it is sufficient enough for most users and if you don’t really care about it then the phone is a great buy.
