Huawei Ascend G500 Review

The Huawei Ascend G500 is one of the recent creations by Huawei which is a part of its struggle in the race with the other smart phones dominating the world nowadays. This smart phone was released in November 2012.

The Ascend G500 is gradually gaining popularity among the users due to its impressive features. First and foremost, let us begin with how it looks, since the exterior of a cell phone is the first thing which is noticed by everyone. As far as the external design is concerned in case of the Ascend G500 smart phone by Huawei, we can give high marks to it! This is because it comes up to the general standards which require a smart phone to be slim and sleek. With the dimensions of 130 x 65 x 11 mm, the Huawei Ascend G500 fulfills the required criteria. It can, therefore, be deemed as a classy cell phone which easily fits in the hands and is convenient to use.

The screen size of this smart phone is 4.3 inches. Today the market is teeming with smart phones having an average touch screen size of 4.0 inches, which is considered as the standard nowadays. Any size which is less than 4.0 inches now looks too small to be deemed as worthy of its cost! With this criterion, the G500 model of the Huawei Ascend series can be considered to be awesome as it has a touch screen of 4.3 inches! It is, therefore, 3 inches more than the general standard.

The touch screen technology is also appreciable. The Ascend G500 smart phone by Huawei has an IPS LCD Capacitive touch screen. Capacitive touch screens are not just a standard, but an essential requirement! It is vital for every touch screen smart phone to have a capacitive touch screen in order to make the experience of touch worthwhile. The resistive touch screen technology is now completely outdated. Therefore, with the IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, the Ascend G500 can be ranked as a good quality smart phone.

The operating system is the latest ICS (Ice-cream Sandwich) version of the Android operating system. Moreover, the processor is also quite powerful as it is a dual-core processor. However, the processing speed could have been much better than 1 GHz. Many of the rival smart phones available in the market today have a processing speed of at least 1.5 GHz. Huawei Ascend G500 smart phone should also have had at least 1.5 GHz of speed, if not more, in order to win the race against its rivals.

However, it is a smart phone which is available at an affordable price. So, perhaps, we can compromise with one shortcoming of the phone and enjoy the rest of its features instead.
