Huawei Ascend G330 review - Design and screen
The plight of the cost conscious smartphone - it’s got to look accessible, be affordable and still pull off decent build. Huawei have sort of done it before. The Ascend G330 was a chunky handset but wasn't ugly and it did fit pretty happily in the hand.
With the Huawei Ascend G330 Huawei have managed to strike considerably more balance. The reason? They've moved in an altogether more classical direction.
It’s black for starters. The upper corners reminiscent of an iPhone, the lower corners of an HTC One S, its shape gives a few nods to design champions of 2012.
Being plastic, it doesn’t feel premium per se, but the soft touch back provides excellent grip and the handset sits nicely in the hand.
It’s dense but overall the Huawei Ascend G330 is still an inoffensive, almost handsome phone.
The WVGA resolution LCD display looks great for the price. Seemingly a higher quality panel than that found on its predecessor, for £10 per month it’s the most screen bang for your buck with good brightness levels, detail and mediocre to good viewing angles.
