Huawei Expo SnapOn – the low-end smartphone with LTE you can have if you don’t love Moto G

A new budget Huawei device showed its face on Amazon today and it may vaguely remind you of a more known device on the market, at least in terms of specs or price? It is supposed to be a Moto G competitor with LTE weighing in at $180. The unlocked smartphone market is starting to grow in the US and the whole world, and in the sub-$200 price range that means avid competition. Huawei is known for offering cheap alternatives to renowned flagships, and this is a similar case, making a point that the Chinese OEM has plans to take over the American market as well.

Huawei Expo is a low-end device that looks kinda chic, as do all of Huawei’s slim and candy-bar devices. Here’s the spec list:

  • 5.0″ TFT LCD (720p)
  • Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage (plus microSD slot)
  • 5MP rear camera, 2MP front
  • 2200mAh battery
  • AT&T and T-mobile LTE bands (2, 4, 5, 12)
  • Android 4.4

The device comes packed with Android 4.4, which is probably its biggest drawback, and a possible update is up in the air, as there are little chances this cheap device will ever see the light of Lollipop. It’s still not one of the bad low-end devices out there, mainly because you get LTE which not many cheap smartphones have yet, even the second gen Moto G doesn’t have it.

The pre-order page says Huawei Edge SnapTo began shipping on April 9th in the US, you can pick from white and black versions and you’ll pay $179.99 for one.

T Mobile compromises on prices and gives discount family plan with 10 GB LTE data for $100 starting July 30th

T Mobile is working on giving its customers more affordable Family Plans and it discounted it by providing 10 GB of LTE data every month for $100 starting today! The move comes as a compromise T Mobile is willing to make in order to win AT&T’s and other carriers’ customers with cheaper family plans.

Starting July 30th and until September, customers consisting of families of four for example get around 10GB of data per month for only $100. New customers will get these prices until around 2016. Until now, T Mobile offered 1GB of data at this price for each line but now it is bumped to 2.5 GB of LTE data for each of the four lines, making the discount at around $30 a month.

Customers can bring their own device and not sing a new contract in order to reduce the monthly fees and these rates can be increased if customers decide to pay their subsidized devices faster. The upside is that you get the same T Mobile services for much less than usual, even if the carrier’s coverage in less populated areas is much below the competition. Either way, if you decide to go with the new offer, make sure to calculate all your costs before signing the contract!
