Budget Android gets a facelift
The Huawei Ascend Y530 is one of the company's cheapest phones. It is out to win over a few first-time smartphone users, and those who aren't willing to shell out hundreds for a new mobile.
Its specs won't wow you, but Huawei has upped its design game to offer an all-round better-looking phone than last year's models. We checked the phone out at MWC 2014
, where it was first shown-off.
Huawei Ascend Y530 – Design and Features
The Huawei Ascend Y530 is the follow-up to last year's Ascend G510
. As the G series classes its act up with the Ascend G6
, the Y series is graced with this new – also pretty classy – model.
Huawei has worked on a new shell for the Y530, and it's sleeker and slimmer than last year's phones. I looked at the white version, and was pleased with the aesthetic upgrades Huawei has made. Smooth curves and a neat two-tone screen surround give this phone a bit of style, where the G510 was a bit of a dumpy, style-free zone.
