Do NOT buy this smartphone
 
http://www.forbes.com/sites/greatspe..._medium=social

So 2 of the 5 top smartphone manufacturers are normally lower end makers Huawei and ZTE. Huawei recently unveiling the superphone in the article. But both companies incorporate backdoors into their product's software. So while they are expanding and spreading smartphone technology to the poor around the world, they are also gaining access to governments and corporations.

I got a Huawei(I dont know how you say that. lol) phone, the only problem is the screen keyboard is to small and when you hit one letter it always hits the letter next to it, typing on the move is almost impossible, although the mp3 player on it is very good, they certainly wont be taking over the world if they use their phones to coordinate that take over via texts.:lol:

I don't like screen keyboards. They usually are too small unless the phone has a big screen. And since I grew up using Nokia's logs, I don't want a phone with big display. That's why I bought Sony Xperia Mini Pro:

Chinese backdoors bad. American backdoors good.

All backdoors are good, provided I know about them and nobody else does.

The Droid Charge has a good on-screen keyboard, especially when you rotate it on it's side.

I recently bought a Galaxy S3 Mini and its an amazing phone and very fast for what it is, can't moan about it at all.
I looked into those Huaweis though and I read that the fears about the company are unfounded because they were investigated and nothing untoward was found in their phones or software.
