... I made a hasty purchase on the website for £130 + £0 topup.


Please let us know your impressions. Today the price is £180 on Vodafone's website, but I did find it for £155 in a store. Won't buy, if at all, until I have got rid of my second OMC.

Just spoke to Vodafone and this DOES NOT have Gorilla Glass or a scratch resistant display, well that's what they say, so maybe it does lol

Update

Just like I thought, they know nothing useless idiots, off the Huawei website "Big 4.5" screen, slim design and protected by tough Gorilla Glass."

No wonder I call them "VODACRAP"

It's my crap eyesight. Sometimes 3s look like 8s.

@Andymac, none of the staff in any of the mobile phone shops knows diddly squat. New stock comes in and just gets locked into a cupboard. You really have to prompt staff to check.

Good paul obrien, I wanted to ask you a question, I am a fan of yours for your roms Mobile and wanted to know if for Huawei G510 MoDaCo rom will have some available in the future? for the version of qualcomm? a hug


Not planned at this stage!

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.


Strange, at least it's still £130 on the website!

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.

And I'm tempted to get one myself. Not promising anything though ;)

That would be golden. I've played with my newly arrived one and I'm finding myself fighting through Huawei's, and then Vodafone's crapware. I just want AOSP :)

Not sure that I have the nerve for 'customisations' and will just use a launcher to change the look and reinstall the Market apps I already have.

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.

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..
