Huawei Ascend G610 Review


Reasonably and yet awesome smartphone makers- Huawei has come out with yet another commendable smartphone- Huawei Ascend G610. It has a 5 inch display, a strikingly fast processor and amazing looks. Well that’s what matters isn’t it? Huawei has been very successful selling out in Asia and this phone will be no exception to this. Read more and you will know exactly why.


I am tired of all the phones looking alike but this something everyone will be used to. It is just what everyone likes but why the Samsung alike structure everyone? Though it might look so similar to Samsung products, the built is much better. Huawei Ascend G610 has a very smooth back. The nice curves on the back allow you to have a firm hold on the smartphone. Huawei Ascend G610 also has the same speaker placement mistake everyone does- place it at the back. It firstly curbs the sound and secondly it curbs the freaking sound! Regardless, they are of real top quality.


Huawei Ascend G610 has a 5 inch display with a resolution of 540×960 pixels. Yes, it is not full HD. This is kind of a setback. Even the budget smartphone makers try to give you that awesome resolution and all. Anyway, what you have here is nothing less than beautiful anyway. The display is much cleaner than what you find on Micromax or Lenovo. The Ascend G610 will give you awesome video playback and the viewing angles just perfect. The display is also well protected with gorilla glass.


Out of all the companies that try to provide you the best for the least- Huawei might just have the best camera. This one is not going to change that tag. The 5MP shooter takes photos with vivid colour bracket. The detailing is amazing, the contrast is spot and there is no visible noise either. Huawei Ascend G610’s 5MP lens is a keeper. The video recording quality is awesome as well. Front VGA camera is satisfactory. The video calling quality is decent enough but self portraits do not come out that well.


Huawei does work on their user interface unlike every other company that makes budget smartphones. Huawei Ascend G610 has this subtle looking user interface. It gives you great customization like every other but it is much thought out. It also gives you great widgets. It runs on the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS. That name opens the door to more apps than you can count.


Huawei Ascend G610 has a 1.2GHz Quad Core beast. It will run your apps with no problem at all. There is no visible fps drop and no lag in moderate gaming apps. Some of the high end ones did stick a little but nothing noticeable. 1GB RAM will help you with your multitasking. 16GB is the available space in the internal memory. The 2150mAh battery gives you roughly 9-10h of talktime.

Final Thoughts

Listen, the best way to put this is- if you are looking for quality with a little compromise on “specs on paper” then you shall go ahead and buy this smartphone. Huawei Ascend G610 will not disappoint. With the reasonably good looks and performance that speaks for its self, I am sold.
