Huawei Ascend G510 review

Can the G510 become an affordable mid-range miracle?

Our Verdict

The G510 shows that Huawei really does have the ability to compete against the well established smartphone manufacturers. It's fine for everyday use, but it struggles with more demanding tasks and the battery life isn't brilliant for movies or games.
