These two mobile phone companies are no doubt growing at a faster pace in the Pakistani market, but may now face tough competition as Huawei has also started its operation in Pakistan and their devices have what it takes to make the mobile successful! The company recently launched Huawei Ascend Y511 in Pakistani which has amazing features, design and the style which user would definitely love.

Having the long battery backup and quick access to the social network is what that we all want. There are many devices available just under Rs. 12,000, gives you these kinds of features. However, remember that specification and functionality are two different things.

The Ascend Y511 comes in only two colors: Black and White. The black version of the device has grey colored back panel that sparkles under the light and gives a “not-so-cheap” look to the device. Unlike other handsets, it is not slippery and the 5-inch device fits nicely on the palm.

The side panels of the handset are surrounded by the metal thread that is designed to protect its internals and giving a rich look.

In the left hand side, the volume rocker and power is placed – having an adequate space in between. On the top, micro USB port and 3.5 mm jack are placed.

Huawei Ascend Y511 stands out of other devices on the design-wise which available in the similar price range.

The screen size of the handset is 4.5 inches, has IPS-LCD display, capacitive of touchscreen technology with the resolution of 480*854 pixels and makes a decent 218 ppi pixel density. Unlike other devices, it has no HD or qHD resolution which is usually common on the devices available in this price tag. However, the display quality and touchscreen response is satisfactory.

The level of brightness of the Huawei Ascend Y511 is not very good and may disappoint some users. Even indoor, we had to keep the brightness level of the device at its maximum to operate.

If you love to play racing game on the device then you may not be able to fully enjoy the experience because the viewing angle is not very wide, making it difficult for the user to see while playing and user have to twist the phone into odd angle.

The battery life of the device is very good and comes with 1730 mAH Li-Lon battery while majority of its competitor has the battery around 1300 mAH. The battery backup of the handset is, as obvious, very good. With a single charge, you can easily play one hour of gaming, few minutes of calling and half an hour for browsing in a day. If you are a heavy user of the mobile and needs a set with a good battery backup then this may be the best one for you as it can stay up to 12 hours if it is used heavily.

In order to check its battery timing, we switched on the Wi-Fi, kept the device at its maximum brightness and played games for 45 minutes continuously, which only consume 8 percent of the charge. While watching videos on YouTube and keeping the device at maximum brightness for twenty five minutes, only 10 percent of the charge was used.

Huawei Ascend Y511 has 3MP rear camera 0.3MP front camera while majority of its competitors offering the back camera of at least 5MP.  We also surprised to see that it does not have built-in LED flash but still makes good pictures and videos. We have seen plenty of devices that despite having low resolution, makes fantastic images even in the absence of LED flash and Huawei Ascend Y511 is one of them.

The image results in the sunlight and well-lit conditions are very amazing but in the dim light situation, the device may not content you with its results. We tried capturing a picture indoors, underneath the tube light in order to check its camera results and the result of the image was disappointing containing just a few visible elements.

It has dual core processor with the speed of 1.3 GHz. You get 512 MB RAM, Android 4.2.2 operating system and Mali 400 GPU. Though, the specifications are mediocre but we have not experience any shut down or hang while using the handset. You can play games like Subway Surfer, Stick Cricket, Highway Rally, Danger Dash, etc. comfortably on this handset.

However, you may face problem while playing the high end games such as Modern Combat 4 which is common in the low cost quad core processor devices.

ascend y511Other Features

It has dual SIM slot, Wi-Fi with the capability of hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 and micro USB slot in the phone for transferring files from personal computer.

The device comes with USB internet feature which is a notable feature that allows you to share your PC’s internet with this handset and also has the GPS.

ascend y511Conclusion

Huawei Ascend Y511 is an expensive device at the price of Rs. 12300 while most of other Android smartphones offering higher camera and processor at the same price or even below. It also does not have any eye catching feature as well.

All in all, it has decent battery back up and satisfactory performance but has poor camera which many of the user would not like.
