Huawei does a good job of providing a budget Quad core smartphone with the G610. It is a powerhouse running all available games on google play easily. A good choice if you are looking for a cheap performance smartphone.
Display and Configuration
The Huawei G610 features a massive 5 inch QHD IPS display for stunning visuals and great viewing angles.The video resolution could have been better for a phone with this size with just 960x540 display resolution. The 1.2 GHz quad core processor with 1 GB usable RAM ensures that all your apps run seamlessly with minimal lag. The internal memory is limited to 4GB with an expansion slot to expand it upto 32 GB to hold tons of media. The good feature about this phone is the ability to install apps on the memory card which declutters the internal storage allowing a smoother experience.
Huawei G610 sports a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash with a capability to shoot 720p videos. The front camera is decent despite being VGA and supports Skype calling.
Connectivity and Battery
The device is loaded with Gravity Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Light Sensor and magnetic sensors to ensure all types of apps to run smoothly and not be lacking. Connectivity wise it has Bluetooth with EDR & A2DP Wi-Fi : IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, supports Wi-Fi hotspot and a micro USB 2.0 slot for all your needs.
The battery of 2150 mAH is sufficient to run a whole day on heavy usage.

This is my 1st smart phone. Using it for two weeks now...nnI bought this phone after so many cross check and reviews.nThe phone's performance is really good...I'm very happy till now with my decision of buying this phone...nComing to Pro's and Con's :nnPro's ----n1. Very fast CPU & GPU..nnAlthough the processor used in this phone is an old one, ARM Cortex-A7 1.21 GHz but its quad core and being old one has nothing to do with the performance it gives to your device..its really fast.nnGPU used in this one is PowerVR SXG544, which is even used in some variant of device like Samsung Galaxy S4. High end games like Asphalt 8, GT racing etc. run without a single lag.. (dont believe me?, try out yourself! :P ) Other games like temple run 2, subway surfer etc run very smoothly...I could never find a lag.nn2. You will love the display of this phone. The display is quite pleasing. Resolution is perfect for the screen size of 5'. The display is not at all a problem while viewing in sunlight when in auto mode.nYou will start liking the UI of this phone after using it, not so great but not so bad either.nMany useful customizations have been done in the UI.nn3. RAM is 1GB (available is 975MB), u can't ask for more in budget phones like this..Multitasking is not at all a problem. nn4. Battery life is quite good. On normal usage, it can last for 1.5 - 2 days. ( I use this phone with Wi-Fi and 3G data connection always on; internet surfing for 5-7 hours, daily some 3-4 hours of gaming, some 15-20 calls on average everyday and also listening songs and watching videos for 1-2 hours and still at the end of the day some 20% of the battery is still remaining.. :-P )nn5. Dual Sim and Dual Standby and talk-time of more than 11 hours. The call quality is very good.nn6. The most important Pro I think is that it doesn't get heated while playing games for hours...( I'm surprised why and how? ) But it does heats up while charging, just like every other smartphone.nnCon's ---nn1. The camera is only 5 MP but it still records HD videos and video quality is really good. Photos taken in day light are good, not so great. Front camera is just for the sake of it. ( So bad if u r thinking of clicking a selfie :-D ). I dont click much photos so this point is not a problem for me.nn2. Available internal storage is only 2.2 GB out of 4 GB which might be less for many of you. But still, since the memory is expandable upto 32 GB, its not a problem. I use 16 GB memory card and its enough. The high memory gaming apps can be easily transferred to SD card using apps like clean master.nn3. The Intensity of inbuilt speakers is average, not so loud as of sony xperia phones. n( If you put this phone on flexible surface like bed or in your pocket, then you will hear low volume BUT if you put this phone on rigid surface like table, then the position of the speaker is such that volume is not reduced, its quite high ) If you use Good quality Headphones, then the magic happens....sound quality so great!nnn*One thing I want to clear that on many sites, it shows that this phone doesn't support FM radio connectivity, IT DOES!!!nn**Many people think that this is a Cheap Chinese Brand Phone... NO...It's not!!nDon't even think of comparing it with cheap phones of micromax, karbonn or xolo or gionee etc.nJust google or wiki "Huawei" and you will know what u need to know. For mobiles, the company is new in Indian market but it is a success in global market. nnI am so much hopeful that my phone will not go to service center within a year. ( Even if it does, which brand's mobiles don't go??? :-) ) nnI will totally recommend this phone in this price range. I'll update this review after few months of use for sure.
Those looking for an entry level Android phone with most of the features should go for this one. The company has great reputation in Europe, so its not like other Chinese phones we see in the market.nnPros:n1. Superb Screenn2. Good Batteryn3. Good Processor & Sufficient RAM.n4. Android 4.2 OSn5. Does have Proximity, Accelerometer & Ambient light sensorsnnCons:n1. UI is crap trying to replicate IOS interface. (But this is not a deal breaker as we can install custom launcher like Nova)n2. Camera does not feel like a 5MP shooter, but i can deal with that too..nnNote:nDon't compare the phone with Flagship mobiles which is not fair. Compare with Samsung mobiles below 20K and this one triumphs them all.
