Review Huawei Ascend Y530 Smartphone

3 May 2014
  • Summary: Gigantic little Y. Huawei's Y product line is aimed at price-conscious smartphone newbies. The Ascend Y530 is no exception. The Chinese manufacturer bundles a rounded package for 149 Euros (~$206) and keeps a simplified usage in mind - and the 4.5-inch Y is available for less online.
  • Pros: Good build, Slim silhouette, Feasible performance, Viewing angle stable screen, Decent speaker, Low price, Huawei has bundled a rounded overall package for a very affordable price. This even makes a low-budget smartphone fun.
  • Cons: Abysmal front-facing camera, Small working memory, Low and slow internal storage, Occasional stutters in use, The front-facing camera could be a bit higher quality. More working memory would also be nice, but likely too much of a good thing for this price range.

Huawei Ascend Y530 ( black)

4 April 2014
  • Summary: While the Ascend Y530 is pretty cheap, its all-round unimpressive performance means it's still not worth your cash. For the same money you can buy the Motorola Moto G, which beats the Y530 in every respect.
  • Pros: The Huawei Ascend Y530 is very affordable, its battery is replaceable and it has expandable storage.
  • Cons: Its screen is poor, its processor doesn't offer much power, Huawei's software is clunky to use, its battery life is weak and it doesn't have 4G.

Huawei Ascend Y530 review

TechRadar UK
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Is simplicity the key to winning the budget market?
  • Pros: Simple UI mode, Solid design, Respectable battery life, The Emotion UI is quite a pleasant addition, as is the simple home style. Being able to switch between the two means this device becomes perfectly suited for the young and the old. The 5MP camera may not be the best camera seen on a handset,...
  • Cons: Emotion UI is poor, Small internal storage, No 4G or NFC, In terms of design, Huawei have obviously used cheap materials, and this is really noticeable when interacting with and using the device. If storage space is a priority then you may find the 4GB of internal storage on the Huawei Ascend Y53...

Huawei Ascend Y530

26 April 2014

It has a matt finish which gives plenty of grip and its relatively heavy 145g weight has the advantage of making the phone feel solid and...

Pocket Lint
11 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The biggest problem the Huawei Ascend Y530 faces is that the competition at this price point has changed fairly dramatically in recent times. While there are a number of devices in the sub-£150 category, it’s the Motorola Moto G that has shifted expectations up a gear.
  • Pros: Design is reasonable, IPS display, has microSD storage expansion, simple user interface option is good for newcomers
  • Cons: Slow performance, seems overpriced, cameras are average, software tweaks don't add much, battery performance not good

Huawei Ascend Y530

7 July 2015
  • Summary: Странно было бы ожидать от бюджетного устройства мощной начинки и рекордных показателей, однако для своей цены аппарат получился более чем адекватным. Не хватая звёзд с небес, он полноценно справляется с земными задачами.
  • Pros: невысокая цена;, солидный дизайн и качественная сборка;, хороший экран.
  • Cons: малый объём встроенной памяти;, не самая удачная камера.

Huawei Ascend Y530 im Test – Einsteiger-Smartphone mit intuitiver Nutzeroberfläche

28 April 2015
  • Summary: Das Huawei Ascend Y530 kommt mit einer 5 Megapixel Kamera mit Autofokus und LED-Blitz. Letztes ist schon eine kleine Besonderheit, denn in dieser Preisklasse muss man bei den meisten Handys auf einen Blitz ganz verzichten. Nicht so in diesem Fall.
