Chinese manufacturer Huawei has once again made Berlin its very own stomping ground with a slew of high-profile product announcements at IFA 2014 that underline the company’s growing presence in Europe. One of the key weapons in the struggle for market and mind share will undoubtedly be the Huawei Ascend G620S, a 5 inch Android smartphone that offers superb value for money. Mobile Geeks get hands on IFA 2014:
The Huawei Ascend G620S has a great deal going for it despite hitting a retail price that we are pretty sure will remain under $200. The 5 inch display is an IPS LCD panel with a decent HD 720p resolution. The Y550 runs the latest Android 4.4 Kit Kat on a Snapdragon 410 processor from Qualcomm, which means that it will be 64-bit ready for Google’s up and coming 64-bit Android 5.0 OS.

And then there is LTE support. Huawei’s expertise in the celluar modem and chipset area means they are in the position to offer you Category 4 LTE (4G at 150mbps…) support on a device at this price range – you will not find many smartphones that retail for less than $200 bring LTE support, at least not this side of 2015.
Other specs include a 2MP front camera, an 8MP shooter on the back, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal flash storage which can be boosted by a microSD card, plus a decent sized 2,000mAh battery. All in all, you are looking at a lot phone for the price you are paying.
