Ascend G510 accessories

Had the usual trawl through Ebay and Amazon, most of the items are in China as you would suspect with huge delivery times, but managed to order some bits from an Ebay seller in Spain.

I have bought a TPU case, I have one on my Huawei G300 and it has kept it as new since I put it on it, and also some screen protectors, as even though it has Gorilla Glass I like to keep them scratch free and clean, if anyone is interested the item info is on the links below

Regards

Andrew

Thanks Andymac, but I am looking for a book-type holder, such as this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/PDair-Leather-Case-ZTE-Skate/dp/B006N7RHN2 and I hope that somebody will make one.

What your your impressions of the phone so far? Have you managed to get with of the bloatware and if so, how?

Hi Andy,

How long did delivery take from Spain for the Gel case? Were you please with the quality?

I've just ordered my G510 from Vodafone today. Edited by rosco-85

I ordered it on Sunday, I have had an email saying it has been dispatched, and to expect it in 3-5 days (the email arrived on Monday) as soon as I get it, I will take some pics and let you know what it's like on here, it looked OK and the gel case I have on the G300 has kept it in mint condition so hopefully this one will do the same for the G510

Thanks for the quick response. I took a chance and ordered one anyway. Figured it's only £4 so can't really go wrong. I noticed on the Huawei website they've now got a 'General Version' of the Firmware. That kind of sealed the deal for me with getting the G510, plus the unlock code is less than £4 also.

One of the benefits of getting a budget phone is that I don't have to wrap it up in cotton wool. I hate the idea of having a really nice phone (such as a Nexus 4) but never getting to use it as-is as I'd have to have a crappy case round it.

Screen protectors on the other hand are mandatory. Still waiting for mine to arrive from Germany

I mentioned in another thread, I briefly owned a Nexus 4, but when it arrived it was *too* nice, I loved that I was able to throw my Blade around and not care :P Luckily I sold the N4 to CEX for £50 profit, since it was just after they were really scarce :D

Trouble was, experiencing a Nexus 4, then going back to the Blade was painful. Once we get zRAM and/or swap on our G510s I'll be happy with the speed of my new budget, but performant phone :)

For me a case is essential and it does not matter whether it's for a cheap(ish) Android or a high end device. Keeping the phone looking good also helps towards the resale value.

I hope I don't have to wait too long for delivery of my order from Spain.

This is another thing I love about having a budget device: it's mine to do as I please with, without having to consider resale value (since one I'm done with it it won't have any!)

I had an email yesterday from the seller on the Spanish ebay site. I had to put it through google translate to learn that it will be shipped soon and may take up to seven days to arrive. As Diehard pointed out, it's only two hours flying time from Spain. It took me longer last December to get back to London from Birmingham on a London Midland train. A complete farce.

Oh dear, I am sorry to hear this. I must admit there was a big smile on my face when I got home this afternoon and saw a small, brown package on the hall stand.

Do you think it's too soon to follow with the seller?
