A new Android phone has arrived for US Cellular customers, the Huawei Ascend Y is an Android phone with a 3.5” screen and a 3.2mp camera with about 5 hours talk time and supposedly almost 13 days of standby time! The phone is very attractively priced at $29.99, but it requires a 2yr agreement. I’ve never reviewed a Huawei phone, I’d like to as I’m curious about them, maybe someday I’ll get the chance!!
