Huawei Ascend W1 Review

For the year 2013, Huawei has announced the launching of a new smart phone Huawei Ascend W1. In the past few years, even with the existence of Samsung and Nokia, Huawei has developed good reputation in the market, which is a remarkable achievement. The phone will be available soon, with the target to launch it within the first quarter of current year.

Having a first glance at its specs, it is a windows phone with version of windows 8. So it is clear with this, Huawei, is going to counter Nokia instead of Samsung. This is because due to increasing popularity of Android operating system, Nokia has switched greatly to Windows operating system.

The chipset and CPU used in the cell are Qualcomm MSM8230 Snapdragon and Dual core 1.2 GHz Krait, which ensures high speed during multitasking and running heavy graphic games or applications. An additional GPU or Graphics Processor Unit is also placed in the motherboard of the Huawei Ascend W1, providing it an edge over it rivals. This GPU gives a high graphic resolution to the mobile phone. GPU used in this smartphone is Adreno 305.

Coming to its general features, it operates with 2G and 3G system. Its dimensions are pretty smarter, ensuring confident grip. With 124.5 x 63.7 x 10.5 mm size and 130 g of weight, it’s a handsome looking mobile set. Different colors in which it is available are blue, white, magenta, black, adding great towards its overall grace.

Display of the cell has been crafted carefully. It has IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 4 inches in size having 480 x 800 pixels. As the set is touchscreen, and the user has to do whatever he/she wants form the screen, so the capacitive screen facilitates greatly in this regard. The internal memory is only 4GB, which is not up to the mark. That means, Huawei is itself providing a soft hole for its rivals to compete it easily. Huawei has to think seriously on the memory feature because this requires a must up-gradation.

Further, data transfer can be accomplished using several means like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE, NFC and USB. These are must appreciated features, however these are available in most of the phones of this class. A 5 megapixel camera for photo capturing with features like geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection has been installed. For video making it can make a video with 720p at 30fps, which is fine for a phone with modest specifications. A secondary VGA camera on the front is also present.

Other regular feature includes, HTML5 browser, messaging thread software, document viewer, photo viewer, voice memo, predictive text input, player, built in radio and GPS system. For longer standby and talk time, a Li-Po 1950 mAh battery is supplied to ensure this. Reviewing these entire features, Huawei Ascend W1, will be a worthy product to have. A great option regarding this cell is to make use of it as a gift item because of its graceful and appealing look. A must buy product with 8 out of 10 points.
