PaulJM, 16 Jul 2017I'm still happily using my Y520 after 2 years, sure it's slow and not great for anything other... moreyes I 've met many of friends who changed there mobile after some months but I 've this and when I met with friends they said 'ohh too old mobile it is, are you not bored from it' then i said no and its battery timing is very good but not on data plan.... and cant use 4G on it except these problem this is very good mobile than others
THE WORST PHONE I HAVE EVER TOUCHED. This phone is able to put you off huawei easily!!! It might not be cheap but do not buy it.
Rooting this Y520 phone is definitely worth it and makes it possible to multitask and run some demanding apps even on the very poor specs.
At stock, because of the very low RAM it can't even run simple apps like Poweramp + Firefox at the same time without force closing. After rooting it and making a 400mb swap file the 2 apps are able to run with each other and not crash :)
After rooting, newer games can also become playable on it by using GL Tools to reduce graphics quality.
I'm still happily using my Y520 after 2 years, sure it's slow and not great for anything other than calling/texting and music but the phone is just so darn reliable! I've seen so many other expensive phones have major issues within months/weeks and have to be returned but I've never had any issues with my Y520. It does exactly what it's supposed to do as a budget smartphone. I'm now looking to upgrade to a newer phone but to be honest if the Y520 just had a slightly better battery with a quad core CPU + 1 GB of RAM (which some newer apps require) I would have probably used it for another 2 years.
I must agree with the most negative comments here. this phone is one of the worst phones I ever had. My first device is dead after 13 months, and my second device is now in trouble.. I wouldn't recommend new buyer to purchase any products of huawei..
Firmware is out of date but can be updated
Has a low volume problem but still working on that
this phone cant reboot...all apps are not working, its busy telling me that unfortunately google.come has failed,, what should i do with it
This phone is the worst ever invented. Its impossible to use a phone with only 512MB ram, the screenshot function hardly ever works, there is no way to turn of the shutter sound that activates after every photo taken on the awful 5MP camera. Overall this phone is frustrating to use and complicates life greatly.
