Re: Opinion on Huawei G510

I played with a Huawei (I think P6) at Digitec last month and I was extremely frustrated that I could not find the app drawer.
Then I read that Huawei has modified Android enough to not have an app drawer - you put everything in the homescreens.
Knowing this I'd like to go back to Digitec and try it again. It does not have to be bad, but sounds strange.

On the G510 I'd say the price is really great. You could also try to find a Huawei Y300 for even less on Interdiscount: http://www.interdiscount.ch/idshop/j...hsg/detail.jsf.

Re: Opinion on Huawei G510

Well it's all a matter of what you are used to. Was not to be put off by this. So long as the phone works well-and it does. In January comes Android 4.4 Kit Kat so lets see how it goes. And a big buying point-it does not come loaded with Facebook!

Re: Opinion on Huawei G510

I have Y300 (smaller version of G510).
It's easy to unlock them if you don't want to use it on given network, also there are fair amount of alternative roms, there even is work on-going on porting Android 4.4 to it.

On the down side though, it's not super cool looking but if this doesn't bother you I'd say go for it.

Re: Opinion on Huawei G510

There is no app drawer either for the Huawei y300. I installed "3d home" launcher, and there you have an app drawer in the middle where you can drag icons from, into the walls of what feels like a 3d rotating "living room" that you can decorate with your apps shortcuts. It has a transparent roof that renders the current weather. A must install to see what I am telling here, not the fastest of launchers but its free and I have fun using it.

yes tried it. The Huawei launcher is much better. There is an applications short cut box where you can put maximum 16 apps

Re: Opinion on Huawei G510

In a week the price for the P6 has dropped from 379 CHF to 339 ( microspot.ch ).
Oh why did I not wait a week!

Not many reviews on Amazon yet, but they may be of some help:
