Huawei SnapTo on sale for $180 on Amazon, but there are better deals

huawei snapto

Huawei have launched another low-cost phone on Amazon for international buyers to pick up direct, but with a little shopping you can find better at a lower price.

At $180 the Huawei SnapTo is a budget phone, and easily undercuts the majority of Android handsets available in store in Europe and the U.S, but as fans of all Chinese tech we know that the SnapTo isn’t as great a deal as it could have been.

Huawei have have chosen some solid components for the SnapTo from the 5-inch HD display and quad-core 2.0Ghz Snapdragon 400 CPU, and LTE, but there are some serious cost cutting items too such as the 5 mega-pixel main camera, and just 1GB RAM!

Gizchina News of the week

If we compare the Huawei SnapTo to the Elephone P6000 for example the cost is well overblown. The P6000’s official RRP is $160, it ships with LTE and a 5-inch HD display, but the processor is a 64bit model, there is 2GB RAM, the main camera is 13 mega-pixel and it ships with Android 5.0! What’s more you can get the Elephone for just $119.99 if you are fast!

So nice try Huawei, and thanks for offering lower cost phones internationally, but we are sure you can do a lot better.

    This reminds me to post too, If you happen to be Australian or live in Australia like me you can get a dirt cheap 64-Bit LTE Phone for $45. The SoC is a SD410, only 1gb of ram but at that price can you really complain. The display is only WXGA but thankfully it’s IPS and to be honest it’s not all that bad. Better be quick I already bought two in my city and stock seems to be drying up

    I think it’s a great news instead.
    Let’s not make the mistake of comparing this phone sold on amazon with the ones we are used to buy here through aliexpress or other resellers.
    We have to compare this one with other phones sold on amazon like for example a Samsung A3 which is sold for nearly 250€ in Europe.
    Regular people used to spend 300$ for a budget SD410 phone sold on amazon.
    So this huawei is a good alternative.
    Not for us, of course, since we can get a good SD801 or MK6752 for even less than that.
