Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Huawei. This time these guys announced Huawei U8520 Duplex. This is a smartphone on Android 2.2 Froyo in 2011.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2011 and choose from them. And, secondly, Huawei U8520 Duplex has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Huawei U8520 Duplex screen, we were assigned to a segment very compact smartphones. See for yourself, here is TFT-screen with diagonal 3.2″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Huawei U8520 Duplex the case turned out very thick — 12.7 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 1 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera on 3.15 MP located on the back of the smartphone. The frontcamera at Huawei U8520 Duplex received 0.3 MP that is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 1-core on the chipset Snapdragon S1. RAM 0.256 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 0.512 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Huawei U8520 Duplex supports memory cards microSD with the maximum volume 32 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Huawei U8520 Duplex: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for. If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Huawei U8520 Duplex will begin in October 2011 at a price of $110. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).

We picked up these models at a similar price.
