Huawei Ascend G510 review

 

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

The Huawei Ascend G510 sits somewhere in the middle of the Chinese company's Android range, squaring off against the likes of the Sony Xperia U, LG Optimus L5 II and the Windows-toting Nokia Lumia 620.

Huawei Ascend G510 - Pocket-lint

 

A solid phone that will serve budget users well. The only real problem we have with it is that it's fairly standard

Cheap, solid, works as you'd hope and expect, improved camera

Slight dull looks, lack of storage, lack of RAM will cause the phone to slow with intensive apps

It might sound as if we don't like the G510. In fact, we think it's a capable enough phone, and that's reflected in its score. The problem for us is really just that we've seen it all in this price range. Each year, or even more frequently, there's a...

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

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: In Depth

 

Why should you pay attention to the Huawei Ascend G510? Because it's a £130 phone loaded up with dual-cores and a 4.5-inch screen – in other words – it's incredibly good value for money, on paper…

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

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

Expectations have been raised

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

Huawei Ascend G510

 

The Huawei Ascend G510 has arrived: it's the first of the ultra-cheap smartphones to arrive running Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean”, rather than older, creaker 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich”. For just £130 upfront, or £13 per month on contract, you get a massive...

On paper, the Huawei Ascend G510 sounds like a bargain. In practice, it’s not quite as powerful as it really should be. Something is holding it back, and ultimately, it makes the even cheaper ZTE Blade 3 the better budget option of the two. But hey, if...

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.
