After being very pleased with the performance of ZTE V970, I've decided to test a fresh new smartphone from Huawei. Also powered by MediaTek MT6577 chipset, one of the most promising dual SIM smartphones is Huawei U8836D / Ascend G500 Pro (also known as Shine).
Huawei is a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company. It is nowadays the largest telecommunications equipment maker in the world, having overtaken Ericsson.
