As far as the cameras are concerned, the Huawei Ascend G730 packs a 5-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 0.3-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

The Huawei Ascend G730 runs Android 4.2 and is powered by a 2300mAh removable battery. It measures 149.50 x 78.00 x 9.60 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 180.00 grams.

The dual-SIM manager is well-integrated into the system and intuitive to use. The number keys in the phone app are big enough to make it easy to hit the right key every time. In portrait mode, when the one-handed operation user interface is activated, the keys do not fill the whole width of the display. An arrow pushes the number block either to the right or to the left side to make the keys easier to reach with one hand.

It baffles us as to why Huawei decided to make the first SIM slot for normal-sized SIM cards, but the second slot for micro SIM cards. One must assume that the manufacturer skimped to save money, but the result is that only slot 1 supports 3G.

The speech and audio quality could be a little less tinny, but it is always clearly understood. The smartphone did not appear to cancel out environmental noise during our test.

The fact that it has a very attractive design, excellent battery life, and a dual sim means if you’re looking for a large, affordable handset that you can depend on, which boasts a number of features you’d often find in more expensive phones, then the Huawei Ascent G7 is definitely worth considering. If you’re after something a bit fancier – especially in the screen department – then you’ll want something a bit more pricey.

We liked

There’s no denying that the Huawei Ascent G7 represents excellent value for money, and you’ll be hard pushed to find a handset for a similar amount of money that comes with better specs and a larger screen.

We disliked

The fact that the Huawei Ascent G7 comes with Android 4.4, rather than Android 5.0, is a disappointment and makes the handset already feel a bit dated. The Emotion 3.0 user interface also takes a bit of getting used to, and won’t be to everyone’s taste.

The low resolution of the screen also reminds you that this is a budget smartphone, and the large 5.5-inch screen is less forgiving than a smaller display would be; however, for the price, you can’t really expect a screen that would trouble Apple’s Retina displays
