The Huwaei Ideos X5 could be a good investment for those looking to sell mobile phones and obtain something which is cutting edge, as one website has claimed it ticks all of the right boxes.
According to cnet UK, the device is likely to be within many people's budgets, giving access to smartphone technology for those keen to trade mobile phones and secure a newer alternative.
As well as being cheaper than many similar models, the Huwaei Ideos X5 boasts powerful Android software and a good-size touchscreen.
In addition, the smartphone scores well from an aesthetic point of view, although it is not without its faults.
The biggest gripe, according to the website, is that Huawei have decided to put their own custom interface to the Android software without improving usability in any significant way.
In conclusion, the device – which goes on sale in May – could be a good introduction to the world of smartphones for those who are looking to trade their current mobile phone for something more powerful and stylish.
"The Huwaei Ideos X5 appears to be that rare beast, a crave-worthy budget smartphone. With a decent-sized touchscreen and acceptable looks, the X5 could hold its own against much pricier competition," the source added.
Recent figures from ABI Research showed that more than 303 million smartphones were shipped worldwide last year.
