Huawei X5 Is The Cheapest High-End Android Phone Available

Maybe it’s just the whiskey in the image, but there’s something exceptionally appealing about the new IDEOS X5 smartphone from Huawei. It could be the 3.8-inch 800×480 screen, the 5MP camera or the fact it runs Froyo, but I think it might be the relatively tiny $349 pricetag.

The X5 does only boast a 800MHz processor, and only supports the 900/2100MHz spectrums making it useless on NextG, but for that pricetag you can’t really complain.

And if you don’t want to pony up the $349 upfront, the phone is also on a $29 Crazy Johns cap plan for $0, or you can get two handsets for free on a $49 twin cap deal.
