Display & Camera

Experience users will be able to tell that Huawei Ascend Y540 is an entry-level smartphone immediately on sighting it. The phone sports a 4.5-inch diagonal display. The touchscreen has a measly resolution of 854 x 480 pixels for a pixel density of 165 ppi, which is the approximate screen size of most budget Android smartphones.

However, the display has G-sensor, an auto-rotate feature. Huawei Ascend Y540 has an impressive a 5-megapixel rear camera that can capture images at a resolution of up to 2592 x 1944 pixels. A LED flash is also attached at its back to take pictures in dark corners. 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.

Hardware & Software

In consonance with what is obtainable on some of its rivals, Huawei Ascend Y540 is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz which is seen as an upgrade on the 1.2GHz chip used on its predecessor. Huawei claims this CPU delivers solid performance without consuming significant amount of power, meaning you should expect longer battery life.

The processor is paired with a Mali-400 GPU and a doubled RAM of 1GB. The Ascend Y540 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and that is one of its few bright spots. The software brings improved performance over its predecessors and put a number of great features at your fingertip.

The smartphone supports the use of two SIM cards simultaneously with dual standby. Juice needed to run the smartphone is provided by a 1950mAh Lithium-Ion battery, which may be able to keep the phone running for a full workday. Onboard storage memory is 4GB.

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 for faster connection. MicroUSB 2.0, Bluetooth with EDR and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n are also available for your connectivity needs.
