Last year we went on a review of available smartphone Huawei G610, which at that time was quite an interesting model. Today, to our test was his heir - Huawei G630. Let's see whether it was possible to make a new model Huawei better
Huawei G630 looks very familiar. Because of the large frames around the 5-inch screen it is not a compact, but it is not a giant. Dimensions smartphone is 143 × 71,7 × 7,8 mm and weighs 165 grams. Compared with its predecessor Huawei G610, the hero of the review has become thinner by 2 mm and dropped 5 grams of weight.
The front side of the smartphone is covered with protective glass, which is located at the top of the earpiece, front camera 1 megapixel, LED missed events and proximity sensors and lighting. Below the screen are three hardware softkeys.
On the side of the body are the volume keys and turn right, 3.5mm audiorazem top and microUSB port with the main microphone below. On the back side of the lens is the main 8-megapixel camera with flash, optional microphone and multimedia speaker.
After removing the cover, you can find two slots for SIM-card format micro-SIM slot for memory cards microSD. The battery in this model is not removable.
In terms of ease of use, all usual and quite convenient for the smartphone with 5 inch screen. Of course, the frame around the screen is quite impressive, but there is need to understand that this is a device available, rather than the flagship. Mechanical control buttons are located where you need, and they have a tangible mild stroke.
Covering the back cover in a white version of the smartphone frosted because fingerprints on it can not be seen, but the scratches can be seen only from a certain angle. Since there is no oleophobic coating, screen heavily salted and it is very difficult to clean.
Operating system and shell
Huawei G630 is running an operating system Android 4.3 preloaded with shell EmotionUI 2.0 Lite. Despite the fact that the envelope is somewhat limited, it still has a great potential settings.
You can select the effect of turning the desktop, select and change the subject. If all this is not interested, you can activate the "Simple Screen". In this mode, the desktop appearance changes significantly and simplified.
If we talk about the smoothness of operation, in most cases, the interface is smooth, but when entering the folder animation often appears jerky. Otherwise, everything is pretty cheerful and lively.
The heart of the smartphone is the eating-4 processor Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8212 200 clocked at 1.2 GHz. In the role of video card supports Adreno 302.
Unfortunately, we have already somewhat outdated processor, since all four cores are built on technology ARM Cortex-A7. Just worth considering that this chip supports a maximum display resolution of 720p (HD). The amount of RAM is 1 GB, of which only 250 MB available. Built-in memory is only 4 GB, but the user is only 1.86 GB. It is possible to extend it by using memory cards microSD. Fortunately, you can select the memory in use by default.
Synthetic test results are not high, but this is not surprising. On the other hand criticism in terms of performance not. The speed of the smartphone does not satisfy the demanding user.
Performance smartphone enough to run games and applications. We even run the game Real Racing 3, but the graphics settings were far from the maximum. In more simple games no problems noted.
Working with wireless networks and navigation has not caused any complaints. Everything works fast. Also worth noting is a good earpiece and microphone. But multimedia speakers located on the rear side is not so smooth, despite the fact that it is loud. The main claim is actually its location, because when the phone is on the table, then the speaker is fully covered, that makes it sound much quieter. Work with two cards organized in a standard way, nothing special.
Check support popular audio and video codecs, we organized under the old methodology. The result was that with video codec is more or less good, but for the convenience of the player is worth to establish, as the standard is very simple.
The capacity of the non-removable battery is 2000 mAh, which is not very much, but then it is worth considering that in the smartphone works is not the most powerful processor. If the intensity of use of a smartphone, with always-on wireless networks, the machine asked for a charge on the next day, and if we restrict the use and turn off wireless network, you can safely rely on the two days of work.
Despite the fact that this is a device available, the manufacturer does not skimp on the screen. As a result, we get a 5 inch IPS screen c resolution HD. Of course, the oleophobic coating had to be sacrificed, but there are sensors automatically adjust the brightness.
The range of brightness ranges from 348 cd / m² for maximum illumination and 16.1 cd / m² at a minimum. The display contrast ratio is 1: 604. These figures are average, but, despite this, the street information on the screen you can see.
We have checked the factory calibration of the screen and can say that the temperature is almost the standard, but the gamma curve somewhat polygonal, but is within acceptable limits.
Huawei G630 has two cameras - front 1 megapixel and 8 megapixel main. The quality of photos taken on the front camera, suitable only for Skype. The main camera in this respect is much more interesting, you will need to take into account that the abundance of settings and additional modes not. Everything is simple and clear.
Video recording is possible in 720p on the main camera and VGA on the front.
The quality of photos taken on the main camera, can be considered good for a smartphone of this level. Focus smooth throughout the frame, the white balance is determined mainly by the right, and the noise in the images are not very many. Because the camera Huawei G630 can be called good, both for affordable smartphone.
As a result, we have affordable smartphone, running a 4-processor the eating Qualcomm. Like device primarily for those who do not want to buy a smartphone based on CPU MediaTek. The main advantages should include a good screen, camera and easy to use, but a small amount of internal memory and a mediocre time work can be attributed to the shortcomings.
