T-Mobile’s new low-cost unlimited plans have been met with great news, but paying $599 for a phone outright just to take advantage of the new plans can be difficult. However, T-Mobile’s Huawei Prism II, a low-end Android device, is now available, for $116 outright, which will let you test the T-Mobile waters without much regret.
The Prism II, the successor to the original model, Prism, features a 3.5-inch HVGA 480 x 320 display, a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage, a 1,750 mAh battery, and a 3.2-megapixel rear shooter. As for software, the device is running Jelly Bean 4.1.2.
HVGA, the only resolution supported by Android until version 1.5, with today’s standards, would be hard to live with. However, keep in mind that the Prism II is a low-end budget smartphone, not a device that you should really do all of your media consumption on, especially if you’re used to a higher resolution.
It’s not a high-end device, but for those that don’t have much cash to spend or simply want to test another network, the Prism II will serve you well.
