Thus, it can be seen that Huawei has come out with many features to appeal to its customers. Read on to know more about the phone.
Features & Specifications
All the features are the ones that you would expect in a phone in 7-8k price range. The 5 inch screen is a qHD screen making reading and all other tasks very convenient. The camera in this phone is mediocre. You get a 5 MP rear camera and a 0.3 MP VGA front camera. The rear camera comes with autofocus and LED flash. The front camera can take very mediocre selfies and isn’t very special. This phone comes with a Quad Core 1.2 GHz processor. To store all your content the internal memory storage is 4 GB and the RAM is 1 GB. The operating system in this phone is the outdated Android JellyBean. The phone has an accelerometer and a proximity sensor. The phone also has an in built light sensor. All these sensors make sure your phone responds to all your actions. Connectivity is achieved through Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and hotspot. It also has support for microUSB v2.0. You also get BT A2DP allowing all round connectivity.
Design and Quality
Huawei Ascend G610 dual sim phone weighs in at about 170 grams which is not too heavy. Its dimensions are 142 mm * 73.6 mm * 9.9 mm. It’s a sleek phone with curved edges and the facade has a very aesthetic appeal to it. Huawei made sure to power pack the phone along with making it look attractive. It is also very easy to hold. The IPS LCD screen lets you play games and movies. It has a resolution of 540 * 960 pixels with a pixel density of around 220 ppi which is slightly low. It comes in two colors – black and white.
OS and Tech
It comes with the slightly old Android v4.2 OS (Jelly Bean) which can be a drawback, now that almost all new Android phones come with KitKat or Lollipop. The OS allows great multitasking and allows many applications to run together in harmony. The phone has the Emotion UI which is characteristic to Huawei phones. Sometimes a lag may trouble the users.
Camera and Multimedia
The front camera that the phone comes with is a 5 MP (2592 * 1944 pixels) camera. The Autofocus feature is available and the flash lets you click bright and crisp photos even at night. The secondary camera is a very basic 0.3 MP VGA camera which is okay for selfies and video calling. The primary camera supports 720p video recording which is decent. It also supports the geo-tagging feature. The music and video players are a delight. The video and audio players support a host of formats, so you don’t have to worry about any compatibility issues.
Battery and Memory
It has a 2150 mAh Li-Ion battery which is okay if you are a normal user and don’t use too many battery intensive applications. The battery life can be prolonged if the brightness is reduced. The RAM is a standard 1 GB and the internal storage is 4 GB, expandable to 32 GB. The storage of OS and other files reduces ROM further. Both of these could have been better.
