Review: Huawei M735

Apps

The M735 has access to an app store provided by MetroPCS. Most of the apps available are additional MetroPCS services and are limited in scale. App discovery is a terrible experience that requires digging and digging and digging through page after page after page of options.

Bluetooth

The M735 supports both mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets. I had no trouble pairing to a mono headset, but for whatever reason it wouldn't pair/connect with either of my stereo Bluetooth devices nor my PCs. Call quality through mono headsets was about the worst I've ever heard.

Clock

The M735 has a good-sized digital clock that's visible on the lock screen once the display is woken up. It might be hard to read at arm's length thanks to the low brightness level of the display, and isn't readable when outdoors. Any time you are inside, it will suffice for checking the time. The clock can't be turned into an analog clock, but it can be turned into a weather widget or off entirely if time doesn't overly concern you.

MetroNavigation

The M735 also has MetroPCS's GPS-based navigation on board. The GPS worked well at pinpointing my location, but the slow data speeds really limited the usefulness of this service/application. The M735 simply couldn't respond fast enough to changing conditions. It would take forever to redraw maps, and by the time it loaded a map it would have to load a new one because I had traveled beyond the boundaries of the map.
