Released April, 2013
  • Android 4.1

Until now we would have said that FM radio is becoming an almost standard feature on modern smartphones.

The big advantage of going for a TFT over an AMOLED is that the colour reproduction is much more natural, and the screen can easily be seen outdoors, and reduced to sensible levels inside.

Reviews Word on the street for the Huawei ASCEND G510


8.0
They're all pretty good, none is outstanding, but they're not the horrow show you might have expected from a budget Android handset a few years ago.

8.0
Both browsers plugged along nicely, dual-core processor not seeming to struggle with loading pages, and they loaded fast over both Wi-Fi and 3G connections.

Overall

8.0 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Outside in bright sunlight, contrast levels are high and the picture is detailed.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
There's more than enough detail here for most tasks - web browsing and emails could, we suppose, be a bit sharper and easier to read at small sizes, but overall it's a decent screen.
by PocketLint (May, 2013)
The big screen makes viewing web pages easy at all zoom levels, with everything looking clear and crisp.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Apps

Being an Android-based phone, the Huawei Ascend G510 comes with every form of messaging that you would imagine, SMS, IM in the form of Google Talk, and email in the form of Gmail and an email app.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
In the way of pre-installed apps, the Huawei Ascend G510 does come with some useful, and some not so useful, apps.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The music app is well thought through, and very attractive.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Camera

Under the hood, Huawei has chosen to power the Ascend G510 with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, sat alongside a 5MP rear-facing camera sensor, and a 0.3MP front-facing sensor, and also comes fitted with NFC and DLNA streaming capabilities, and DTS sound.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The back of the phone holds the 5MP rear sensor, as well as the LED flash, speaker, microphone and obligatory branding.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
A little more passion in the design, perhaps a better camera and we might feel more excited.
by PocketLint (May, 2013)

Keyboard

The keyboard works a lot better when you use two hands in portrait mode, since the keys are well spaced.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
As expected, the Huawei Ascend G510 includes the native Android keyboard, which we have always found to be perfectly functional, if lacking some of the higher end features found on other dedicated keyboard apps.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The keyboard is intuitive, with a swipe down or long-press on the key to select the alternate input (6 instead of Y, for example) working well.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Video

Unsurprisingly, the video player is just the stock Android player, offering no functionality other than playing and pausing the video, or skipping to a select point in the video using the slide bar.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
If you post videos like that on YouTube, you will get comments that read "1900 called, it wants it's 480p video back.
by PocketLint (May, 2013)
If you're lucky enough to get some sunshine, the screen becomes very difficult to see, which makes watching movies or taking photos very difficult.
