Huawei Ascend Y540

Display and Camera

According to the specification of the Huawei Ascend Y540, not much has changed from the earlier Ascend Y530 in terms of display. The phone sports a 4.5-inch diagonal display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels – similar to what is obtainable on most dirt-cheap devices.

However, the Ascend Y540 impresses with a 5-megapixel rear sensor. The main shooter, which has flash, can capture images at a resolution of up to 2592 x 1944 pixels. But the front-facing snapper is a VGA (0.3-megapixel) sensor, which may be insufficient to produce the quality of selfies some users might desire.

Power and Performance

Huawei Ascend Y540 is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, which represents a slight improvement on the 1.2GHz chip used on its predecessor.

Along with the improved chip, RAM has also been doubled on this device to 1 GB and this should hopefully help users enjoy noticeably better performance. Huawei Ascend Y540 is equipped with a Lithium-ion battery boasting a capacity of 1950 mAh to get the phone running for several hours.

The operating system of choice in this case – Android 4.4 KitKat – is just about what is expected on a device in its price range.

Other Specs and Features

The smartphone supports the use of two SIM cards simultaneously with dual standby. Internal storage is 4 GB, which is hardly enough space for many users to store their files in.

Thankfully, there is a memory slot for TransFlash or microSD cards to enable users add more storage memory to the one that is already provided on Huawei Ascend Y540. The phone supports dual band 3G connectivity.

Pricing & Availability

Huawei Ascend Y540 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in Nigeria. Huawei Ascend Y540 price in Nigeria should range from 20,000 to 30,000 depending on your location in the country.
