The Huawei Ascend G730 is a megalomaniacal phone. This dual SIM phablet with a giant 5.5-inch screen comes with a very reasonable price, so if you are looking for a device like this, with the intention of not spending too much on it, then read our observations about this new Huawei well. Looking at the specification, it is clear that the Huawei Ascend G730 belongs to the middle class, where there are already similar models, such as the Alcatel One Touch Pop C7 and LG G Pro Lite Dual. So, based on the competition, we come to the same conclusion. This is an average device, which does not offer anything spectacular, but it handles all the requirements of the users stoically and at the same time costs a decent amount.

Unlike the Ascend P7 or Ascend G6, the Huawei Ascend G730 doesn’t have much to offer when it comes to aesthetics. Packed in a decent plastic suit, the Huawei Ascend G730 is likable. It looks a bit like some Samsung models at the front, and due to its slightly larger thickness of 9.6 mm, it looks plump, even a little awkward. Despite the larger dimensions, the device does not seem difficult to use (given the large screen), so it is not a problem to hold it in your hand for longer. Only 180g in weight is suitable for that.

Huawei Ascend G730 screen
Despite the low price, the Huawei Ascend G730 has a large 5.5-inch IPS screen with quite well-displayed colors, as well as large viewing angles, which is very important. Otherwise, it would be a real shame to make a device with such a screen that only you have to look at at an angle of 90 degrees. The resolution is no worse either. With 960 × 540 pixels, we can say that Huawei has remained consistent with the demands of the middle class.

The screen has a very high level of brightness, so we did not notice any major problems when using the device outdoors. However, if you expose the device directly to sunlight, there is a reflection that makes it difficult to read the screen. Also, the sharpness of the image and its purity were also a pleasant surprise.
Huawei Ascend G730 specification and performance
Somehow it seems to me that this Huawei has no intention of standing out. Quite easily, the Ascend G730 reveals its features. First, the device runs on a quad-core MediaTek processor with a frequency of 1.3GHz combined with 1GB of RAM. This configuration is enough for most applications, which cannot be said for the modest 4GB of internal memory, of which when you start the phone you only have 2GB left. However, you can buy a microSD card and increase the “accommodation” capacity.

The phone, or phablet, as you prefer, runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system with a recognizable and visually appealing Emotion user interface. This guarantees pleasant work and easy movement through the contents.
This is a dual SIM device and that function is nicely integrated into it. Thanks to the large screen, the numbers in the dialer are large and easy to find. However, it is interesting and a bit unusual why Huawei decided to reserve the first SIM slot for the standard size of the SIM card, while the second is intended for a micro SIM card. As a result, you only have one SIM port that allows access to the 3G network.
When it comes to playing games, many of you will opt for this phone because of the large screen. The screen responds well to touches and is therefore suitable for games, but in order for them to work more demandingly, the level of detail must be kept to a minimum.
Huawei Ascend G730 camera
This Huawei phablet has two cameras. The front one comes in minimal VGA resolution, so it can be used “if needed”. The main one is far better and comes with a resolution of 5MP with LED flash, but it doesn’t give any better results. Only on a sunny day can photos get solid. When the brightness is lower, the photos get more noise and a lot of dark parts are noticed.
Huawei Ascend G730 battery life
The problem with large screen models is power consumption. With maximum use, and therefore battery consumption, Huawei Ascend G730 can last about 4-5 hours. If you use the phone sporadically, then the battery life can be extended to a whole day.
Huawei Ascend G730 conclusion
Huawei Ascend G730 6
The final rating should be based on a large, bright and decent quality 5.5-inch screen. Combined with two SIM slots, the Huawei Ascend G730 is one in a series of such devices that come to us from Huawei and other lesser-known manufacturers. Also, the solid battery life is another trump card up your sleeve, as well as the smooth enough performance. Of course, the Huawei Ascend G730 is not a high-budget device, which must be equally good in all segments, so it lacks speaker power, more pixels in the front camera and the like. Still, the Huawei Ascend G730 is a good phablet and more importantly very affordable, but even it has enough alternatives worth looking for and only then make a decision before buying.
