Review Huawei Ascend G510 Smartphone

 

High performance for little money? Affordable yet powerful - this

Bright LC display; NFC module; GSM quad-band; 5 megapixel camera; Removable battery; Max. 32 GB memory expansion via micro SD card; Good performance; Low temperature; Decent battery runtime; Very low-priced

Low resolution; Glare-type screen; Slippery hold despite the ribbed back; Only 1 GB memory available; Occasional, minor stutters when navigating and in games

Huawei's Ascend G510 is a full-fledged smartphone despite its low price and does not show shortcomings in significant areas in terms of soft- and hardware equipment.

Huawei Ascend G510 Review – Solid Rival to Established Competitors, Re...

 

Chinese company Huawei is one of the “survivors” on the smartphone market. Moreover, Huawei is one of the top five smartphone makers, which is a stunning achievement as the company reached this milestone in just a few years. One of the reasons behind...

The fact that it’s cheap is by far the biggest advantage of Huawei Ascend G510. Moreover, the smartphone offers much better features than its competitors, so if you can get past its downsides, the Huawei Ascend G510 is quite a good deal. It comes with...

Even though the Ascend G510 is an entry-level smartphone, I’m still not convinced of its overall build quality. While the phone looks ok, it seems rather flimsy when it’s kept tight in hands. The back cover jogs a little bit, though this might only...

Huawei Ascend G510 Review

 

Huawei takes their entry-level offering a notch higher with the Ascend G510. It has a large screen, solid construction, really great build, and can deliver above average performance for an entry-level device. It's not without limitations though, like...

Can the G510 become an affordable mid-range miracle?

MicroSD support ; Sturdy build ; DLNA streaming and NFC

Poor Emotion UI ; Small internal storage ; Screen terrible in direct sunlight

Huawei Ascend G510 pictures and hands-on

 

The idea of the G510 is that it's a budget handset for pay-as-you-go customers looking for a slightly larger device with a bit more power than the phones that hover around the £100 range. What you get is a dual-core processor running at 1.3GHz, runs...

Is an affordable price tag enough to overlook performance issues?

Affordable £130 price tag, Relatively good camera, Good call quality

Terrible screen quality, Buggy Emotion UI, Poor battery

It's not the most exciting phone, but you get an awful lot for your money with the G510

Huawei Ascend G510 review

 

The Huawei Ascend G510 has one of the biggest screens you'll find in a phone under £150, but it's really let down by Huawei's awkward software, which seriously saps the dual-core processor's power. Its outward design isn't going to win you any style...

Large, bright screen ; Affordable price ; Decent camera ; Expandable storage

Unpleasant, bloated Huawei software ; Miserably dull design ; Underpowered processor ; Only 4GB of internal storage

With its plain, chunky design, the Huawei Ascend G510 is evidently going for the gold medal in Ugliest Phone of the Year. The sluggish, awkward interface Huawei has slapped on it doesn't do it any favours either. It's only saved from complete damnation...

Huawei Ascend G510 Review: In Depth

 

At just £130, the Huawei Ascend G510 crams in a 4.5-inch screen, dual-cores and a 5-megapixel camera.

Large IPS display ; Good camera performance ; Front facing camera on board

User Interface is heavy ; Occasionally buggy performance ; Stutter present when multi-tasking

If you want the Android apps, want the size and want it all for £130 though, you won’t find it anywhere else, so you can confidently pick up a Huawei Ascend G510 from a Vodafone shop or Vodafone online today.

From a gaming perspective, the G510 doesn't offer a consistent enough experience to be a serious consideration
