Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company Huawei got the name Huawei Ascend G500 and was announced in November 2012. This model is released in the series of smartphones Ascend.

Smartphone Huawei Ascend G500 works out of the box under the operating system Android version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. According to our information, this model has not received any updates to the software, and if you want to choose some other smartphone on this version of the OS with support for updates, then look at these smartphones on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in our catalog.

In addition the Huawei Ascend G500 — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators.

Screen, body and battery

4.3 Inch IPS LCD touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Huawei Ascend G500. Case thickness 11 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 1 930 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — medium-sized smartphone with very thick case and weak battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Huawei Ascend G500. The main camera, located on the back, received 5 MP. The main camera we would rate her 3 out of 5, because at the moment there are cameraphones with much better cameras.

The frontcamera is also in Huawei Ascend G500. It is located in front of the screen and has its own 0.3 MP, which for qualitative selfies it will be not enough, therefore we advise to look others selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Huawei Ascend G500 is installed 1-core processor on the chipset Mediatek MT6575. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 1 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 32 GB. You are only available 4 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Huawei Ascend G500: buy or not to buy?

So we told about not very cheap not very powerful smartphone Huawei Ascend G500 with a standard screen size, conventional main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a weak battery.

All these characteristics in 2012 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in November 2012 at a price of $200. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Huawei Ascend G500, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Huawei Ascend G500 is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
