87% Review Huawei Ascend G700 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Low-budget meteor. The Chinese manufacturer wants to score with a quad-core chip, a large HD screen and a low price. The smartphone can also manage two SIM cards at the same time and in terms of equipment it surpasses most of the devices in the same price range. We have tested whether the device is worth the price.
