This smartphone is a great all-rounder at a low price

from Expert Reviews

The Huawei Ascend G510 is a decent smartphone at a very competitive price. 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.

The Huawei Ascend G510 is now widely available on pay as you go. If you're on a seriously tight budget this phone is an excellent deal. While it is stuck on Android 4.1, with no chance of an update, it is still a capable handset....

The Huawei Ascend G510 is now widely available on pay as you go. If you're on a seriously tight budget this phone is an excellent deal. While it is stuck on Android 4.1, with no chance of an update, it is still a capable handset.

It has a large screen, fast processor and a decent battery, making it a good all-round Android phone. Now, in May 2014 you can pick one up for almost half the price. While it runs at less than half the speed of the newest, fastest phones this is still one of the better performing budget handsets.

An excellent choice if you want to move to a smartphone without breaking the bank

from Geek Squad

The Ascend G510 is another solid release from Huawei. It may be a bit functional but it’s also fairly cheap with some useful features that you won’t find on other comparable phones. It’s perhaps a little bit hard to see where exactly it fits as it is very similar to the Ascend Y300, but I suppose the larger screen will be enough of a difference for some. Android purists tend to dislike the Emotion UI but newer users usually find it a bit easier to get on with, so it’s very much a case of ‘horses for courses’...

If you’re in the market for a budget Android phone then the Ascend 510 shouldn’t disappoint. It would certainly make an excellent first Android phone for children as it’s not overly expensive. I think Huawei’s phones offer better value for money than the other manufacturers, but crucially I don’t think there’s a trade off in reliability or functionality either. Whilst the G510 may not be particularly exciting, that doesn’t stop it being an ideal entry-level model if you’re looking for smooth functionality over flashy looks.

Solid rival to established competitors, recommended

from Softpedia

Huawei Ascend G510 doesn’t stand out when it comes to design, but it’s certainly one of the few budget-friendly smartphones that sport such as large display.

The overall build quality may not be something Huawei should be proud of, but in the end, it’s what you pay for it that matters for most people....

Huawei Ascend G510 doesn’t stand out when it comes to design, but it’s certainly one of the few budget-friendly smartphones that sport such as large display.

The overall build quality may not be something Huawei should be proud of, but in the end, it’s what you pay for it that matters for most people.

If you can get past some of the issues and downsides that I have mentioned in this review, the Ascend G510 is bang for the buck.

I did not have high hopes for this low-tier smartphone, but some aspects of the Huawei Ascend G510 really surprised me in a good way. I strongly recommend those who are looking for a budget-friendly device to take this one into consideration.

The Huawei Ascend G510 is a decent mid-range phone at a reasonable price tag. It runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS out of the box and has LED notification light. The chip and the UX is similar to the Y300. Wish it had a better design since this looks like a larger variant of the Y300. The camera is decent for photos in daylight, but it can record videos only at VGA resolution, which is disappointing. At a price tag of Rs. 10,990, if you need a mid-range Android device with good display, good audio quality, but can live with an average camera, go for it.

As a smartphone with the latest version of Android, a good-sized screen, and a decent camera (for stills, not video), the G510 is a good choice for anyone with reasonable expectations. However, as time goes on you're likely to be tempted to try more than just the simple apps and games, and this is where you'll discover that the phone can't really keep up.

This is the sort of phone you own if you don't really care about phones

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.

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 new low-cost handset from Huawei that fills a need, but it's nothing to get really excited about.

The Huawei G510 is a decent Android smartphone that offers good features in a budget price. However, it's not the best phone that money can buy at this price
