    Great little phone for the price, best budget GSM

    This is a great little GSM smart phone. You get a lot of phone for the money. Other companies like Cricket and the like give you cr@ppy phones with cheap service. With the Huawei Valiant you get a decent quality phone with even more inexpensive service. The call quality is pretty good, the phone is responsive and it has plenty of space for apps. I installed a 32GB Samsung class 10 micro SDHC card and it has plenty of space for apps and content. I havent found an app that isnt compatible with this little gem. The only complaints I have is that after you take the back off quite a few times it starts to feel a little flimsy back there and the 3G internet is a little slow, otherwise you cant beat it. Huawei is actually a pretty big chinese company, and I was hesitant to buy an unknown brand, but the quality has been top notch. BTW, buy a Shinomi screen cover and this thing is tough! Camera pictures are way better than expected but no flash. I couldnt get it to play 720p vids but SD vids look pretty darn close to HD.

    I tried out some of the more expensive phone models that Metro PCS had to offer, and finally decided to go with this Huawei. The reason I chose this" Valiant" over the others is because I only needed a device for calling and texting, basic internet browsing, book reading and occasional GPS navigating. While holding the phone, it feels sturdy,quality built and easy to hold... The processor is quick and able to handle all the basics with ease. Call quality is superb on both the earpiece as well as the outside speaker. Battery Life is very good, as you can average 7 hours of basic usage on a single charge... Features that I like are the pre installed FM radio app, Ice cream Sandwich clock, purple indicator light for messages, and the good amount of notification/ringtone sounds that come pre-installed. Overall, the Huawei Valiant may be the best sub $60 phone for Metro PCS, or perhaps any phone carrier. I highly recommend it.

    I bought 2 of these for my kids. My first intention was to buy the phone to use as an offline gps and mp3 player for my kid. ( Yes, it works perfectly!) Then, I discovered it has Extremely good call quality and strong signal. Although, no 4G ( We don't use data, thus, makes no different to us) The volume is rather loud but clear. It is amazing how loud it can be when turn the speakerphone ON! It come with the Gorilla 2 glass, thus, it is quite scratch resistant that pair with its bright, clear display. Bad stuff: camera. I have to admit, the camera is virtually "useless", I can't take a good photo regardless the light condition. ( but again, it is a $69 phone, if I want a decent photo, I can buy a $50 digital camera at best buy ) Overall, it is very sturdy... bare in mind, this will only take MetroPCS sim card, unless you know how to unlock it.

    I got this when it was @ $30 from Best Buy mainly for a Pandora / Netflix / MP3 player... But when I found it could be unlocked and used on T-Mobile I turned it in to my daughter's new phone. The screen is bright and 4" is about the perfect size to me. The dual core processor handles just about everything without a problem - the menus and app launching is very quick. While it only does 3G with T-Mobile, I can run a Speedtest right next to my 4G T-Mobile specific phone, and this Huawei is faster on the download and about the same on the upload. And, it does make for a good portable movie / music player.

    I stepped up to the Valient from a Metropcs entry level phone and for only $10.00 more it is a giant leap foward with the larger viewing screen and ease of operation. I am happy with the options and overall size and sound quality, battery life and accessory options available as well. A positive review and the Best Buy personnel were of great help in accomodating my requirements.

    Well this phone is awesome, Ive had no issues with it at all. It uses t-mobile signal. So, the signal is awesome compare to older metro phones.Like i said it does everything you might need. Battery lasts a long time, about 20 hours per charge. Only thing i didnt like is that its not a 4g phone, only 3g. But honestly I couldnt notice the difference, still fast internet.

    Its an okay phone but sometimes ending a call can be annoying cause the buttons "disappear". Updates drain the battery. Oh and for some really weird reason when we went to go online for the first time, it went to an adult content site??? It was brand new just finished charging and on first start up. Thankfully our kids didn't use it. Camera and video are good.

    This is a very good budget phone. Very responsive, well built, accept microSD card so can install more than enough apps though more internal memory will be better. Camera image quality not so great and no flash but at this price, I can live with that.

    I think over all is an ok phone, compared to the last phone I had (lg smart phone) I do miss the front camera and the flash.. also when running apps it sometimes blocks, but the easiness to use is very good.

    Phone was purchased for my 8 year old, he's probably to young for a phone, but he asked for and received it. It uses t mobile's service so as long t mobile works for you this service will as well.

    Nice economy phone for people with a low budget. Phone has most of the commonly used functions that are available on high end phones. Cant go wrong with the price/function.

    I got this phone to use while in Mexico. It did the trick. It's a good cheap phone to make and receive calls. It's no iPhone or S5, but for a prepaid phone it's worth the 50 bucks.

    Needed a smartphone when my iPhone was stolen & I was out of town. Worked in a pinch. MetroPCS seemed fine but I will likely never buy a Huawei phone again.
