Review: Huawei M735
The M735 offers several avenues towards making calls. Pressing the physical send key opens up the call log. The default view shows all the calls made to/from the handset. Pressing the D-pad sideways lets you parse through several tabs, which separate calls into just missed, received, dialed, etc.
From any of these tabs, press the screen or use the d-pad to select a call record. Press the send button to call it, or press the little search symbol on the bottom of the screen to get the details of that call. What's exceedingly annoying is that you can't get to the dialpad from the call log. You have to exit out and press the phone icon on the home screen. That's the only way to open up the software dialpad. I can't stand this.
Once you've connected a call, there is an options menu for switching to Bluetooth, adding a line and so on.

The contact application lets each contact hold at least four numbers, in addition to an email address, web site, and notes. You can't add a street address, but you can set custom ringtones and alert tones for each contact. The M735 has a pretty good search function for sorting through contacts, but the only way to sync contacts to the device is by using MetroPCS's backup services. In other words, if you're switching from another MetroPCS handset, it will be a cinch to grab your contacts. If you're a new MetroPCS customer, it will take some time to add them all in manually.
