Huawei Ascend G510 confirmed at Vodafone for £130

Huawei has just confirmed that Vodafone will be retailing its new Ascend G510 at uber low prices: £130 on pre-pay and £13-a-month on contract. Android Jelly Bean, a sizable 4.5-inch display, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and all for £130. Not bad.

Huawei says the Ascend G510 packs in some ‘outstanding features,’ combining unmatched functionality, form-factor and firepower. And that’s great, but it’s not really true – it’s marketing guff. The Ascend G510 is not better than the HTC One, Lumia 920, iPhone 5, or Galaxy S4, for instance. But that’s not the point despite Huawei’s choice of words.
