Display and Camera

The smartphone sports a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. The touchscreen has a pixel density of 218 pixels per inch, which should ensure better colour reproduction and clarity than what you are likely to get from some other budget devices.

On the rear of the Huawei Ascend Y520 is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and several options, including a panorama mode, to help you produce decent quality images. But you are likely to be disappointed to learn the front-facing snapper is VGA (0.3 megapixels), which is seemingly incapable of producing awesome selfies.

Power and Performance

Huawei Ascend Y520 is driven by a dual-core MediaTek MT6572 chip with ARM Cortex-A7 cores. The processor, which is accompanied by a measly 512 MB of RAM, is clocked at a processing speed of 1.3 GHz. The supplied memory somehow limits the level of responsiveness that should be expected from this phone.

A Mali-400 MP1 GPU is in charge of graphics. Huawei Ascend Y520 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat software – decent offering for an entry-level smartphone. A relatively large battery of 1730mAh capacity supplies the juice needed to get this device running.

Other Specs and Features

Inbuilt storage is 4 GB — this is low given that a significant chunk would have been taken up by system resources. But a microSD slot is available to allow you extend the storage space by up to 32 GB.

The 150-gram phone boasts triple band 3G support for faster connection. MicroUSB 2.0, Bluetooth with EDR and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n are also available for your connectivity needs. Huawei Ascend Y520 features GPS with Assisted GPS to make it easier finding your way around.

Pricing & Availability

Huawei Ascend Y520 is now available in Nigeria. You can buy the entry level smartphone at leading online stores in Nigeria. Huawei Ascend Y250 price in Nigeria should range from 18,500 to 25,000 depending on your location in the country.
