The Huawei Ascend G330 is the latest Android phone with an unimaginative design and middle-of-the-road specifications. Its purpose is rather to get the job done at a low price than impress. It does it nicely thanks to a decently-sized 4-inch display, relatively new Android ICS 4.0 version, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage, microSD expansion, utilitarian look of the chassis that fits comfortably in the hand, and a budget-friendly price of about 200EUR.
With a resolution of 480-by-800 pixels, fonts and images on the IPS display with about 233ppi pixel density look pretty much sharp even from wide angles, but you can’t expect a Retina or similar type of quality on a phone that cheap.
Although the area where capacitive buttons are located is large, keep in mind that only a small space around every button reacts. That can lead to missed presses until you get used to the layout.
On the top there’s a large speaker hole with grill, a LED indicator, and front-facing camera.
With a profile measuring slightly more than 1cm, the Huawei G330 isn’t a thick phone, but also not among the thinnest. Its weight is 140gr.
The back panel feels like it’s made of quality plastics and, the best of all, the surface is matte so there will be no too visible fingerprints at least on the back on the phone. Under the hood, there’s a 1,500mAh battery.
The autofocus camera with a 5MP sensor is accompanied by a flash light.
The loudspeaker is located on the bottom of the phone.
As you can see in the video above, the Huawei Ascend G330 runs pretty much fast. It is expected to hit select markets in November.
