After the g300, I wouldn't buy it on principle haha. They lost me on the ICS update. Good work Huawei! Plus I don't even think the specs look that good on this. I got a second hand HTC Sensation XE on Ebay for £110 and it's better than this

That's ex VAT price £108.34 plus VAT = £130


Well the price has gone up to £150. I dropped into the Vodafone stand at Victoria Station this morning where they had stocks of the phone and the price at the till was not £130. I said it was £130 on the website, but the salesman - without checking - said that was a 'release' price. I declined.

@flibblesan & @Sebastian404 Bit weird - I get what you're saying about the dual sim model probably being a Chinese release with an mtk chipset but if you check the links I posted above they both claim to be selling the dual sim version with msm8225 processors (snapdragon s4 play) - neither ad makes reference to the g510d. Maybe both have got their ads wrong, but that seems a bit of an odd coincidence.


msm8225 supports dual sim, so does msm7225a

ro.product.brand=Huawei

Don't pay attention to the board platform. The CPU is definitely a dual-core MSM8225.

The key information is
U8915N = UK G510
U8915D = China Dual-SIM G510 (Snapdragon)

I'm starting to think that there isn't a Mediatek version out there. It was reported back in January but it's possible that this was either a mistake or Huawei changed to Snapdragon.

So the development of the spanish g510 will not be compatible with the UK one and vice versa?

Too early to know for sure but it's likely to be compatible.

Confirmed at £150 + £10 topup in the Bradford store too. I made a hasty purchase on the website for £130 + £0 topup.

They did this with the G300 IIRC so might be time to buy now

Does the 512mb ram actually affect the phones performance when used normally? Do you notice any stutter or lag?

Oh, and how much ram is actually available, because huawei botched the ICS build for the G300, it only had around 100mb ram free even on the first boot :P

Thanks in advance :)

The only explanation is that huawei doesn't make good optimisations. U can't compare de G300 wiz the G510. I've tried both and G510 have more or less 130MB of free RAM

Some unofficial ROMs end up being miles ahead than the official manufactured ROM, so this doesn't really matter to be honest :P
