Display and Camera

According to the specification of the Huawei Ascend Y520, not much has changed from the earlier Ascend Y series 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. The touchscreen has good response so navigating through the phone is very easy.

However, the Ascend Y520 impresses with a 5-megapixel rear sensor. The main shooter, which has LED 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 Y520 is powered by a dual-core MediaTek MT6572 chip with ARM Cortex-A7 cores processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, which represents a slight improvement on some other processors clocking at 1.0GHz.

The Ascend Y520 graphics is handled by a Mali-400 MP1 GPU. The smartphone is accompanied by a measly 512MB RAM. The 512MB RAM also aids in ensuring multiple applications can run simultaneously‎.‎ When browsing‎,‎ you can open numerous tabs without experiencing any problem‎.‎

Huawei Ascend Y520 is equipped with a Lithium-Ion battery boasting a capacity of 1730mAh 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.
