If you’re on the lookout for a cheap Android phone with decent specs and made by a recognized brand, you may want to check out the Huawei Ascend P1.

For hardware specs, the Ascend P1 features a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 Cortext-A9 processor and measures 7.69mm thin and 64.8 mm long. It has a 4.3-inch super AMOLED 960×540 touch screen with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, an 8-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera and Dolby Mobile 3.0 + 5.1 surround sound technology.
