Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company Huawei got the name Huawei Ascend G740 and was announced in October 2013. This model is released in the series of smartphones Ascend.

Smartphone Huawei Ascend G740 works out of the box under the operating system Android version 4.1 Jelly Bean. 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 4.1 Jelly Bean in our catalog.

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5-inch screen, made by technology IPS LCD, installed in the smartphone Huawei Ascend G740.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Huawei Ascend G740 the thickness of the case is 9.3 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Huawei Ascend G740 installed battery for 2 400 mAh, and, as you can guess, it will not last long. We advise you to look in the catalog on smartphones with a powerful battery, there is a good choice from different manufacturers.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera on 8 MP located on the back of the smartphone. The frontcamera at Huawei Ascend G740 received 1 MP that is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera.

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 G740 is installed 2-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 400. 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 8 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Huawei Ascend G740: buy or not to buy?

$250 is the price for Huawei Ascend G740 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with not the fastest processor, a large touch screen, with an ordinary camera for photos and video, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? In this model, the battery is very weak. We advise you to look at real long-livers — smartphones with a powerful battery.

Huawei Ascend G740 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
