RATING: 3.5/5
SPECS: 5.5-inch IPS LCD (720 x 1280 pixels); 1.7 Ghz octa-core; 2 GB RAM; 8 GB storage + microSD (up to 64 GB); 13 MP rear + 5 MP front camera; 3000 mAh battery; 162 grams

The G750 dual-SIM smartphone from Huawei feels sturdy to hold. The 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1080 pixel resolution looks bright but is a fingerprint magnet. A soft, leather-like back panel provides it a good grip.

The phone runs on Android v4.2.2. Huawei has added a custom UI that changes its interface. The Emotion UI is neat and simple. While initially I wasn't comfortable using it, I got a hang of it in a few days.

There isn't any app tray and all the app icons are placed on the home screens. For even more simplified use, there is a Simple mode too that places all icons in Windows Phone 8 interface.

The phone has a 13 MP camera that is surprisingly good as the colours are bright and the images are crisp. When you turn on the front camera, there is a selfie guide which suggests you to look at a correct spot for a perfect expression. The device can capture videos at 1080p resolution from the rear camera.

The phone is powered by a 1.7 GHz octa-core processor and is paired with 2 GB of RAM. The internal storage of the phone is 8 GB and the available memory is 5.13 GB. It weighs 162 grams and has a 3000 mAh battery onboard.
