Huawei Y3

Carphone Warehouse has commenced sales of the Huawei Y3, a budget smartphone that's available for no upfront fee and a monthly plan that costs just £5 a month. For that amount, you get 250MB data, 150 calling minutes and 5000 texts.

As for the phone itself, you get a 4.0-inch WVGA display, Spreadtrum 7731 SoC with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, microSD slot, 5MP camera, 2MP front camera, and a 1,730mAh battery along with Huawei's Emotion UI 3.0 Lite atop Android 4.4 KitKat.

The Y3 may not be the fastest handset around, but if you're looking for a device that can handle basic browsing and social networking tasks, or to use as a secondary phone, it is a decent choice.
