However, where all of these smartphones were built by HTC, this new model is put together by Chinese manufacturer Huawei – which the site explained had not been as stingy with the extra features as one might expect.
In the piece, Edward Chester said the handset was available for around £180 on pay-as-you-go, but was still able to boast a screen that would give the Apple iPhone 3G a run for its money.
"For T-Mobile to make a smartphone so cheap it seemed impossible for it not to have cut some essential corners. However, nothing could have been further from the truth," he concluded.
The Pulse has a 3.5-inch screen, microSD support, a 3.2-megapixel camera, HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity and an integrated media player.
