I have a samsung galaxy express and its an awesome phone. Problem is my husband dropped it and the screen is smashed.

I just bought a huawei g526.. it is a good device which offers 4G and packs up a Qualcomm msm 8930 s400 x2 krait processor when I check it through A benchmark app. And it also packs a adreno 305 gpu.. so don’t worry about gaming it runs all latest titles super smooth.

Im in the search for a new phone, dont need it to do much, dont down load movies or play games. Would like a camera with a flash, long battery life and somthing nice looking. was looking at samsung s4 but think it can do alot of things i just dont need. Also looking at the galaxy expres vs huawei 526 price difference of $198… People in the shops always stir me toward the samsung but i keep looking over the Huawei….Would love to here any sort of feed back…
