AOSB with Android 4.4.4 on Huawei G510/Y300 Review

The AOSB with Android 4.4.4 update for the Huawei Ascend arrived amidst loud complaints of many Android 4.4.3 problems. it does bring a collection of fixes, security updates and performance enhancements.

Despite our overall good review of Android 4.4.3 on the Huawei Ascend, Google quickly rolled out the Android 4.4.4 update to the Huawei Ascend and to other Huawei devices.

The speed that AOSB can quickly push out small updates to the Huawei is one of the best features of these devices. If this was not a Huawei Ascend, the odds of a fast update to fix these bugs would be much slimmer, specially for an older phone.

 

Read the Android 4.4.4 review on the Huawei Ascend to see how this small update handles on an older device.

AOSB pushed out the new update with 4.4.4 KitKat to the Huawei Ascend and 45 devices ahead of Google I/O where the company announced the Android L release which will arrive on Huawei devices later this year and on other devices as well. There is no Android L Huawei Ascend beta, so these users will need to settle for Android 4.4.4 for the time being. Although Huawei Ascend users can download new release now.

After using Android 4.4.4 for the last week, and Android 4.4.3 before that, this is a review of the Huawei Ascend update, which will help owners decide if they should install the 4.4.4 KitKat update or wait for another release.

 

Android 4.4.4 INSTALLATION

The Android 4.4.4 installation on the Huawei Ascend went smoothly. The update will not install on a low battery

After installing the update the Huawei Ascend rebooted, and shortly after that it was ready to go without the need to reinstall any apps or re-login to the apps tested.

 

Android 4.4.4 Features

Android 4.4.4 does not include any new features, but the real reason Huawei Ascend owners are looking forward to this update is for the promise of bug fixes, stability and improved performance. The Huawei Ascend review unit used to test Android 4.4.4 did not show the bad battery life or sluggishness that some users reported. Issues from small updates often impact only a select number of devices, like in our Galaxy S4 Android 4.4.2 experience. So far there are no new Android 4.4.4 problems on the Huawei Ascend review unit used for this test, which is synced with two Gmail accounts, multiple social media accounts and a variety of streaming apps and services.

Android 4.4.4 Performance

Despite a growing list of Android 4.4.4 problems, the Huawei Ascend update performs very well on our review unit. Small updates that aim to fix problems can often add other issues to the device, but that is not the case for our test of the latest KitKat update on the Huawei Ascend. These small issues are why we test Android 4.4.4 and similar updates much like we do a new phone.

This is how Android 4.4.4 performance is on the Huawei Ascend.

Apps

Apps work fine on the Huawei Ascend running Android 4.4.4. This includes social media apps, streaming apps and games. After subjecting the Huawei Ascend on 4.4.4 KitKat to a variety of tasks there wasn’t one app that crashed during the test. This small update does not appear to change the ability of most Android apps to function fine on the Huawei Ascend.

Battery Life

After installing Android 4.4.4 on the Huawei Ascend review unit and using it for a week on AT&T, the device performed good and battery life was not an issue. Bad battery life is one of the biggest complaints about many small Android updates, but our review unit is not impacted by the update.

Connectivity

The Huawei Ascend does not connect to LTE networks by design, but Android 4.4.4 KitKat is not slowing this device down.

WiFi, Bluetooth and cellular connectivity work well on the Huawei Ascend after this update.

Speed

The overall Android 4.4.4 performance on the Huawei Ascend is very good. Although there are some noticeable differences in speed between the Huawei Ascend, overall this older device handles the new KitKat update well. Everything from opening apps to switching apps and playing games works well on the Huawei Ascend with Android 4.4.4.

 

Should You install AOSB with Android 4.4.4?

 

This AOSB KitKat update is one that most Huawei Ascend owners should install on the device without waiting. If you are experiencing AOSB with Android 4.4.3 problems this update may fix many of them and deliver a more stable device.

If for any reason your Huawei Ascend Android 4.4.4 update goes poorly you can always use the Huawei Ascend factory images to downgrade to an earlier version of Android.

  • HI,

    I’ve installed Kitkat ROM on my Huawei G510-0100 and everything works except the screen ‘Settings->Wifi’ crashes, all other setting-screens work.

    The phone connects automatically to my home network, but it is imposible to connect to any other network as the settings->Wifi screen is crashing.

    Any ideas on how to solve this?

  • It is based on cyanogenmod but has more features than cyanogenmod. Battery usage and network connection like CM is not as good as stock ROM. Some useful xposed modules like Greenify does not actually work. Generally i score 80/100 to this ROM. Thank you

  • Congratulations…it’s an really smooth and fast working rom for huawei ascend. i installed it a couple of weeks ago and i couldnt find (nearly) any severe bugs. for me probam rom seems to be defenitly better than huawei stock rom in terms of performance, usability and of course customization and security. only two things to complain about….donation button on webpage 🙂 doesn’ t work for supporting aosp as well as headphone volume cant adjusted for fm radio.
