Users can now have all of the benefits of a touch screen, Android operating system (OS) and impressive specifications, without the hefty price tag, with the Huawei Ascend Y330 smartphone from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC).

With a four-inch 480 x 854 resolution screen, dual-core 1.3 GHz processor and three-megapixel camera on the back, the Ascend Y330 offers great value for money without compromising on features.

“In today’s connected world, everyone wants a smartphone, from students to grandparents and everyone in between. However, often users do not want the high price tag associated with such devices – especially if parents are buying the phone for their children. We all know how easy they are to drop and break, and continually replacing a phone that costs tens of thousands of Rands is not viable.

“The Huawei Ascend Y330 is the perfect solution. It is highly affordable, with everything smartphone users require,” says Fayaaz Seedat, Huawei Consumer Product Specialist at DCC.

Incorporating Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, the Huawei Ascend Y330 gives users access to thousands of applications in the Google Play store. A bright, responsive touch screen delivers a smooth and intuitive user experience, while the powerful processor ensures that the phone responds quickly to any requests.

A 1500mAh lithium-ion battery ensures impressive battery life, perfect for those who are unable to charge their phone during the day such as scholars and students. Additional features include an audio-enhanced music player, and expandable memory through a MicroSD slot up to 32 Gigabytes (GB), delivering enough storage for hours of music playback as well as photographs and other important files.

“For more affordable downloading, the Ascend Y330 is Wi-Fi enabled, so you can connect to any available hotspots with ease. You can also share your phone’s 3G connection thanks to built-in wireless hotspot capability, to enable laptops, tablets and other devices to share the connection.

“The Ascend Y330 also includes standard smartphone features such as GPS and Bluetooth. It is the perfect smartphone for anyone who wants the features without the price tag,” Seedat concludes.

The Huawei Ascend Y330 is available immediately from DCC and selected retail outlets for a recommended retail price of R1 395.00 including VAT.
