We've conducted a detailed review of the Huawei Ascend G730, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Huawei Ascend G730

Huawei Ascend G730's size

The Huawei Ascend G730 is 3.1 inches (78 mm) wide, 5.9 inches (149.5 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.6 mm) thick. The size makes it a bit difficult to use with one hand. In the case of the Huawei Ascend G730, it weighs about 180 oz (180 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Huawei Ascend G730, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Huawei Ascend G730

The processing power of the Huawei Ascend G730 is comparatively low at 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The Huawei Ascend G730 only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Huawei Ascend G730's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Huawei Ascend G730's storage capacity

The Huawei Ascend G730 has 4GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Huawei Ascend G730 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Huawei Ascend G730's screen

The Huawei Ascend G730 has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen quality of the Huawei Ascend G730 is such that videos and images can be blurry at times. There's a noticeable lack of image quality in general.

The camera function of Huawei Ascend G730

The performance of the Huawei Ascend G730's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The battery performance of Huawei Ascend G730

The Huawei Ascend G730's battery capacity is 2300 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the Huawei Ascend G730 has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of Huawei Ascend G730

The Huawei Ascend G730's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Huawei Ascend G730

The merits of Huawei Ascend G730

The demerits of Huawei Ascend G730
