What the Critics Are Saying...


Mobile Tech Review

If you don’t care about the camera quality or the hard-to-see screen in outdoor sunlight conditions, then the T-Mobile Tap can get you the goods at a cheaper price.

- Tong Zhang, Mobile Tech Review
Cnet

The T-Mobile Tap's small screen size results in a cramped virtual keyboard and a difficult browsing experience. The Web browser feels a little primitive as well.

- Nicole Lee, Cnet
PCWorld

The inexpensive T-Mobile Tap, designed by Huawei, is a stylish touch phone targeted toward teens. While the Tap has a solid suite of communication and multimedia features, the slow interface and cramped touch keyboard keep it from being the ultimate messaging phone.

- Ginny Mies, PCWorld
