Review: Huawei SnapTo

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  

The Huawei SnapTo is a curious little phone. The hardware is about as vanilla as it gets, but the phone goes in its own direction with respect to the software.

With a 5-inch screen, the SnapTo is a sizable handset. I wish the screen were a bit better. I wish call quality and battery life were better, too. Some users may be disappointed about the sealed-in battery, but the phone does support memory cards. At least it's well put-together.

Huawei's Emotion user interface offers a different take on the Android home screen experience, but that's not a bad thing. Most of the communication tools are limited to the basics from Google. Huawei was very ambitious with the camera software, but didn't quite nail the execution.

Huawei is selling the phone directly to consumers through its own web site as well as Amazon.com. At $180, it delivers just the right amount of performance making it a good value. But Huawei is facing stiff competition. There are plenty of other phones playing in this space that have better brand appeal with US consumers. The Moto E and the LG Optimus F60 are excellent devices and, dare I say, more visible to US buyers.

The Huawei SnapTo is a fine phone for $180, but I'd only recommend it to those looking for something different.
