Huawei Ascend G510

4 October 2014
  • Summary: 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.

Huawei Ascend G510

16 October 2013
  • Excerpt: A bargain Android phone with a big screen and excellent battery life, the Huawei Ascend G510 gives a lot for your money. But it's cumbersome and we don't like everything about it.

Huawei Ascend G510 ( black)

26 August 2013
  • Summary: 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 points either.
  • Pros: Large, bright screen; Affordable price; Decent camera; Expandable storage.
  • Cons: Unpleasant, bloated Huawei software; Miserably dull design; Underpowered processor; Only 4GB of internal storage.

Review Huawei Ascend G510 Smartphone

15 July 2013
  • Summary: High performance for little money? Affordable yet powerful - this pretty well summarizes Huawei's promise for the Ascend G510. We tested whether the 4.5 inch-entry-level model for a low 160 Euros (~$209) meets this claim.
  • Pros: 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, Despite relatively weak hardware and middling benchmark scores, the Ascend G510 barely ex...
  • Cons: Low resolution, Glare-type screen, Slippery hold despite the ribbed back, Only 1 GB memory available, Occasional, minor stutters when navigating and in games, The 4.5-inch LC display is agreeably large but could do with a slightly higher resolution. The 5 megapixel primary camera only manages a m...

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

7 July 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: 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 a dual-core processor that makes it pretty fa...
  • Cons: 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 apply to this test unit. I was a bit disappointe...

Huawei Ascend G510 Review: In Depth

22 June 2013
  • Conclusion: To say that the Huawei Ascend G510 isn’t great value for money is nothing short of a lie. In the same breathe, so is saying it isn’t without its flaws. For £130 it’s the best big screen on offer.
  • Pros: Large IPS display, Good camera performance, Front facing camera on board
  • Cons: User Interface is heavy, Occasionally buggy performance, Stutter present when multi-tasking

20 November 2014
  • Summary: The basics 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”.
  • Pros: There was a time when a spacious 4.5-inch touchscreen was the reserve of a flagship smartphone costing hundreds and hundreds of pounds. That time has passed: for less than half the price, the Huawei Ascend G510 gives you as much screen real estate to play with as Nokia’s top of the line Lumia 920...
  • Cons: You still expect a few cut corners when it comes to low price Android phones, and the Huawei Ascend G510’s no different in this regard. The plastic frame is tough, but more mundane than magnificent, and the five megapixel camera is pretty pathetic - you’ll need to go hard on the Instagram filters...

Huawei Ascend G510

6 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The Huawei Ascend G510 is a decent smartphone at a very competitive price – just £130 on pay-as-you-go from Vodafone. The handset feels well-made and looks impressively bland in a rather nice way. It's a little chunky by modern standards, but it's easy to keep hold off because of it.
