As a preamble to this test
Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more intended for multimedia, and others more for games.Our analysis was made according to 6 user typologies.So we ran tests on HUAWEI 53010GVA to find out what it was worth.
So you’ll know what it’s worth at the end of this article.
53010GVA compatible with internet use?
We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. An inexpensive computer such as 53010GVA may seem to be the solution. HUAWEI is a manufacturer that has been offering laptops for several years now, but for this laptop they have used lower quality components. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 years.
It’s almost the perfect tool for travelling. A screen 15.6 inches that makes this model transportable anywhere. It 53010GVA comes standard with a touch screen; one more argument if you are not a regular mouse user, or if you don’t have a space available. The overall design is of quality and is made to last. A product made to last a long time. Solid visible parts (the hull, the keyboard,…) and almost last generation internal components have been chosen by HUAWEI with a lot of care.
The manufacturer offers a processor Core i5 1.6 GHz; A mid-range orientation. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 8 Gb of memory. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the 53010GVA, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. With only 256 Gb, HUAWEI considers that you won’t need to store too many files locally, and that you’ll rather do it on a public cloud. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 7 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the 53010GVA is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
The 53010GVA- the right model for streaming and videos ?
With this laptop, HUAWEI offers a product oriented toward general use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this 53010GVA is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
Equipped with a small screen size, 15.6 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. The colours are faithful, warm enough, and the contrasts allow a high level of detail. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 1.9 kilogram.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
On the sound side, it 53010GVA has good components: board and integrated speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Core i5 1.6 GHz is now outdated. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
As far as applications are concerned, did HUAWEI not install any. Only the operating system is installed. As a standard, you have some Windows 10 Famille on which it will be possible to add all the software you need. For multimedia, you can possibly take VLC .
Equipped with the Intel HD 620 Graphics graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Connectivity is unlikely to be a priority for HUAWEI. The 53010GVA only 3 ports only provides you with ports. Not enough to connect everything; you’ll have to choose.
It 53010GVA is one of the worst endowed laptops on the market. Indeed, with 7 hours of autonomy, it is one of the worst specifications. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
The 53010GVA- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
It 53010GVA is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. At least that’s what we find out a priori. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
Its weight of 1.9 Kg makes it easy to move. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. With a 15.6 inches screen, it is not easy to surf the internet or to look at pictures in a group.
HUAWEI has decided to provide a touch screen on the 53010GVA. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
No backlit keyboard on this 53010GVA. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
Too bad for the processor Core i5 1.6 GHz that equips this computer; it is one of the weakest of the moment and moreoverit consumes too much power.
Note that like all manufacturers, HUAWEI is optimistic about the autonomy of this 53010GVA. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
With 7 hours, this model is unfortunately one of the weakest currently offered on laptops.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 256 Gb SSD hard drive. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Even though your laptop will stay in the hotel more often than in a briefcase when you take it to the airport, you will appreciate its volume. Equipped with a compact 15.6 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
The connector part is less well supplied, with only 3 possibilities. This makes it one of the least well equipped models currently.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this 53010GVA for travel use.
The 53010GVA for audio or video editing ?
Definitely not intended for audio and video editing. The weak point of this model is its processor, and its amount of memory. Of course you could still use it for this, but you will find that the result is too tight. Here, both the processor and the general design of the model are obsolete. So use this laptop for simple tasks, otherwise you’ll reach the limits and very often you’ll have frozen screens .
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Core i5 1.6 GHz that is almost obsolete. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 256 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The 53010GVA has only got one, with total 256 Gb storage for your movies and music. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
The autonomy of this 53010GVA is of 7 hours in normal use; It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. On this point HUAWEI could have done much better.
On the connection side, the 53010GVAi s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
Clearly, it’s not 53010GVA designed for audio-visual editing. You can use it for word processing or web browsing.
The 53010GVA for online or local games.
Some laptops with sufficient performance, the right processors and the latest graphics cards can afford to gamble. With this 53010GVA, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. The HUAWEI technical choices were rather made to meet classic needs such as internet browsing or word processing.
This laptop has a resolution in 1920×1080, which is one of the poorest existing today. This results in lower image quality when you are in game mode.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Our tests have shown that for HUAWEI this computer is not intended for playing video games. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.256 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
Even if this model has Wi-Fi, it is not 5Ghz, so it is of lower quality. Too bad, it could have been interesting.
On the practical transport side, this model is one of the lightest on the market, with 1.9 Kg.
For autonomy, 7 hours, this model is worse than most other laptops.
In the end, we do not recommend this 53010GVA for games; low performance will degrade the rendering and playability. But it can be a good choice for office functions.
53010GVA the right choice for office automation ?
Not really designed for office use, 53010GVA it’s still a good product. In detail, here’s what’s going on.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It is equipped with Windows 10 Famille.
It’s not 53010GVA equipped with all the applications you’ll need. It’s up to you to download and/or purchase the software suite that suits you. Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. A weight of 1.9 Kg, which makes this computer one of the best in the lightest category.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
Thanks to the matt treated screen surface, there is almost no reflection of direct sunlight or lamps in the offices. You will benefit from a more diffuse natural image, which has the advantage of causing less eye strain.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 256 Gb. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
So, in summary, it appears that it 53010GVA is less interesting than its competitors. For the same price you will find more suitable and more powerful models.
In short, is the 53010GVA, the right choice ?
The conclusion of the test 53010GVA is that almost all its specifications are below the others. With an interesting price, it will be able to do the job if you know you’re going to change in 3/4 years.
This model does not seem relevant to us for :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– travel use
– make audio and video editing
– playing video games
– office tasks
