Huawei Ascend G510 Price Php 5,990, Specs, Quadrant Standard Benchmark Test Score : Out Now in the Philippines!

Huawei has just released a new and affordable entry-level Android smartphone in the Philippines -- and it's quite powerful and feature-packed too.

Priced at only Php 5,990 and now available across the archipelago, Huawei Ascend G510 comes with the best technical specifications in the Chinese electronics giant's current entry-level to midrange Android phone line-up. Some of the handset's key features include a large 4.5-inch 480 x 854 pixels IPS LCD screen, a Dual-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A9 based Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon chipset, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, a 5 MegaPixel main camera, HD video recorder, DTS Audio Surround Sound enhancement, and a 1,700 mAh Li-Ion battery pack.

Quoting Huawei Device PH Country Manager, Mr. Johnson Ma, "Huawei is bringing new hardware and software innovation to this market -- and not just to the high-end [category]. For years, entry-level smartphones have meant compromise – phones not powerful enough, with screens not big enough, to be able to truly deliver on the promise of the mobile internet. Huawei Ascend G510 is the latest in a line of Huawei handsets to challenge that, and our most powerful yet in the low-to-mid tier. It brings the very latest smartphone technology to the heart of broad consumer mass market, delivering big-screen mobile entertainment without compromise."

Huawei Ascend G510 got a score of 2,684 in the Quadrant Standard Benchmark Test for Android smartphones. It scored higher than fellow Dual Core devices Motorola Atrix 4G, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and LG Optimus 2X, which I think is great considering the phone's very affordable price tag.

I own two Huawei smartphones - the cute Huawei Ascend W1 Windows Phone 8 handset and the pocket-friendly Huawei Ascend Y210D - and I highly recommend them. Both have an attractive design and solid build plus they really offer great value for money. I'm sure Huawei Ascend G510 is right up there with these two in terms of quality so I'm excited to likewise give it a test run.
