Huawei Ascend Y530



Huawei Ascend Y530 Overview

Huawei have made great inroads with their smartphones over the past year or so. Like all the other players they have their big devices with all the wizardry the tech savvy among us come to expect but not everyone wants all those all singing and all dancing devices that can do this and that. we'll all have someone in the family who just wants a phone to be a phone with a few extras chucked in for good measure.

The Huawei Ascend Y530 offers just that, a budget smartphone that can move between their already well known Emotion UI to a very basic form of Android and this will appeal to those who may have slightly poor eyesight or are taking their first steps in the world of smartphones. If it is picked up as a gift or indeed as a first device, you won't feel left out. It still comes with some great features, a 4.5 inch screen where pictures taken with the 5 megapixel camera can be viewed.

Powering the Huawei Ascend Y530 you'll find a Dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor which is pretty much the standard on other handsets in its class these days and as such moving around the handset a multuitaksing will be relatively easy. Behind that we'll find 512MB of RAM, remember what market the Huawei Ascend Y530 is aimed at and you'll find that perfectly adequate for someone who will be texting, browsing the odd webpage and using it as more of a phone than anything else. With this in mind the 1700mAh battery will see a good days usage.

With Android 4.3 the device will have access to all the Google services we have all come to love, Google Maps and a world of entertainment available from Google Play. The FM radio will be an added bonus as will the ability to pop in a memory card to boost the 4GB of on board storage. All in all some who are yet to enter the smartphone market feel that there is is little choice, Hauwei have shown them that they can offer a broad range of products for everyone.

One great feature with all Huawei handsets is the ability to make your handset as easy as possible to use.

With the choice of their unique ‘Simple UI’ those of you who may well be stepping in to the smartphone market for the first time, or those who are visually impaired, get a device will all the features of a fully fledged smartphone, but with an easy way to get around without having a complicated menu system.

Rather than lots of small icons, you get large icons and menu options. Huawei put you in control of how your device looks and feels, with just a few taps you can swap between the standard Emotion UI and the Simple UI, the choice is yours.
