|Unlock to reveal Android awesomeness!|
Yes, I received an upgrade early this year and I was able to finally replace my old phone. I'm not going to do a thorough review of this smartphone. I'm sure there are a lot of websites out there with in-depth reviews of this unit. I would just like to dedicate a post about it since I'll be using it as my main gadget in my future adventures (and in everything I do, really). Yay!
|Wow. All of my gadgets are white. Well, the iPod Touch is black. (Left: iPod Touch 4G, Center: Ascend G610, Right: Xperia X8)|
I'm no stranger to Google's Android OS. As you all know, the Xperia X8 also runs Android (although it was running the older Gingerbread version) and also my Nexus 7 2012 (which runs KitKat, the latest Android version at the moment). This unit runs Jelly Bean (4.2.1). Since I usually use my Nexus 7 for everything I do when I'm out and about, also as my main reading device, I got used to the little tidbits in Android KitKat's features. But it didn't really take me a long time to get used to Jelly Bean again. I usually just use my Xperia X8 for texting or calling, so I'm used to using Android Ice Cream Sandwich and above because of my Nexus 7. The Huawei G610 also has a custom UI on top of Android, called the Emotion UI (version 1.6 on this unit), which I don't like. Fortunately, there are a lot of launchers available for Android. I immediately installed Nova Launcher because I think it comes closest to Stock Android.

|The Huawei's camera is sufficient enough for me to produce pictures for my reviews.|
|I used the G610 for taking pictures of the AG Genoace and AG Gundam AGE-1 Normal reviews.|
|This is the Camera FV5 app. It's simple. (I kinda don't like the other camera apps on Google Play. Too colorful. I want things simple.)|
|My main homescreen. I tried to put all the essential apps and widgets on there. It's kinda like deck construction in Yu-Gi-Oh!. It'll never fit.|
So far, the Huawei G610 has been great! And because I now have this, I only use my iPod Touch solely for playing music. My Nexus 7 is used as a reading device, and also for school work that needs to be done on-the-go (since it's easier to carry the Nexus 7 because it's a tablet).
|I can finally take decent pictures outdoors without bringing the D5000 with me!|
That's it for my post about my new main gadget. I have a feeling that I'll be using this phone for a very long time. I'll see you guys on the next post!
