Huawei Ascend G700: Large Display, Small Price

The G700 has a quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM, dual SIM functionality and 5-inch HD screen for only €299 (EIA).

With the Huawei Ascend G700, the Chinese manufacturer Huawei has presented a new smartphone on the IFA in Berlin, that let is classified in the lower upper class. The successor of the Huawei Ascend G600 has a rather nondescript exterior plastic with three Android buttons, the weight of 155 g is quite right.

Because, after all, a 5-inch display to use that (1,280 x 720 p, 293 ppi) resolves as opposed to the current trend of “only” in HD. This is how I find, but not so tragic, because single pixels should be still difficult to detect with the naked eye.

100 skins

A (probably private) 1,2 GHz quad-core processor, supported by a large amounts of RAM 2 GB works under the hood. That should make for a fast operation. When the internal memory the red pencil was, however, and more than 8 GB in there are large, free cloud storage by Bitcasa only after the expansion with MicroSD card and use the 20 GB.

As the operating system Android is running version 4.2 jelly bean here, certainly a newer version it would have been. The user interface is common as for Huawei smartphones “emotion UI” set about the OS. This is integrated into the latest version including directly to a server, 100 different skins can be downloaded via the. In addition, there is the option to change the wallpaper with a shaking. In this video are the features of the UI more precisely explained:

300 hours in the stand, only 3 on the phone

As a special feature, the G700 offers the possibility to insert a second SIM card and to be accessible at the same time on two numbers. The 2,150 mAh battery should suffice but 150 hours standby time in the dual-SIM and 300 hours in the single-SIM mode for only 180 minutes. In addition to a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera is also a 8-mega pixel LED flash-Knipse mounted on the back.

The Ascend G700 already come in black and white in October at a price of € 299 (MSRP) on the market. If the device in the practice tests is good, it could be a cheap alternative to other quad-core Android smartphones on the market quite.
