Huawei's Ascend G510 will launch on 12 April on Vodafone. The new handset, which will cost £130 on pay as you go or £13 a month, provides a good combination of value for money and performance.

For the money, the G510 is fairly impressive. It has a big 4.5-inch screen and a 1.2 GHz dual-core chip inside. The handset is running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Huawei's Emotion UI running on top. 

On the back of the phone is a 5-megapixel camera with a VGA resolution front-facing camera. Video recording is up to 720p in quality. 

The 4.5-inch screen is slightly low on the resolution front, at 480 x 854 pixels, but then this will have helped to keep costs down. Included is a decent-sized 1700 mAh battery and a microSD slot so you can expand the handset's memory.

At £130 that's quite a bargain, particularly when you factor in that handset running Android Jelly Bean. Those after a budget phone could do much worse than the G510. Expect more on the handset when it launches in the UK on 12 April.

He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
