Ask MoDaCo: Huawei Ascend G510


Slightly bruised and battered by it's journey apparently... this is the Huawei Ascend G510, the spiritual successor to the Huawei G300 and perhaps the new bargain champion at only £130 on Prepay.

The device (available only in Black for now) includes a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor (MSM8225?), a 4.5" 854x480 FWVGA screen, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with Huawei Emotion UI, a 5-megapixel rear camera, front facing camera, 512MB RAM, 1750mAh battery, 4GB ROM + microSD expansion, Bluetooth 2.1, DLNA, NFC, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. GPS / A-GPS and a FM radio.

What do you think? Good enough specs for £130? First impressions are that the device is very solidly built and the screen looks good. It IS SIM locked.

Got questions? Ask them here before our review!

Meh, decent for the price but any MTK MT6589 with SGX 544MP3 will eat this for breakfast. Might as well spend a touch more and get a Jiayu G4 when it drops or an iOcean X7 or Neo N3.

Custom ROMs.. well I know Sebastian404 bought one so he may knock out a custom recovery for the device (hint hint). Maybe a debranded ROM to get the ball rolling.


I've requested the bootloader unlock from Huawei, but yeah I had intended to build a custom recovery and debranded ROM since I (personaly) hate all the emotion UI stuff.

Our Spanish friends have already built some custom recoveries and roms...

having to unlock the bootloader might slow down the custom rom scene tho..
