- Starting from design, the phone recalls the typical Ascend form with round edges. Ascend G510 is 134mm tall, 64.7mm wide and 9.9mm thick while it will be only available in black according to official sources. While the dimension and form possibly makes it a decent contender, its weight of 150g makes it a hard run to carry most of the time. However the size fits well in your palm or pocket.
- On the front side, Huawei Ascend G510 fits a large 4.5-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. The screen operates at 480×854 display resolution which is clearly less pixel for today’s generation. On the same front end, there is a secondary VGA camera which is mated to rear facing 5MP camera which we would like to be atleast 8MP. But thanks to autofocus and LED Flash add-ons which makes the photo shooting experience enjoyable.
- The rear cover is matte finished so it is easy to grip and chances of slipping from hands become lesser. Under the rear cover, rests a 1,700 mAh Li-Ion battery but since phone is not released, the standby and talk time have not been observed. Under the hood, expect a 1.2GHz dual-core Mediatek MT6577 chip with PowerVR SGX531 GPU which will surely boost the functionalities of phone. But on the other hand, the same is compromised by a 512MB only RAM so there will be some speed issues arising. And same goes for the 4GB internal memory – thanks to microSD card slot for an expandable memory of up to 64GB.
- Among the connectivity feature, the Ascend member has to offer some broad details such as: Bluetooth, microUSB, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot, EDGE and GPRS so you are sure to stay connected all the time. So overall, if you a high quality camera and fast speed does not bother you, Ascend G510 is a decent choice for a budget price of EUR 200.
