Huawei is starting to stake its claim in the U.S. smartphone market and the Ascend II is just one of many new Android devices we're seeing from the Chinese company. The Ascend II is definitely worth looking into, considering its price tag of $0. Any time you can get a phone for free, it's definitely pique your interest. However, just because it is free, doesn't always mean that it's the obvious choice. So, where does the Ascend II stand?

It's nice that the phone ships with Android 2.3 instead of the older version 2.2, and Huawei's UI adds some interesting customization features. Still, with U.S. Cellular's other budget-friendly options, the Huawei Ascend II has some tough competition. Is it the phone you should get? Find out in the review.
