Huawei Ascend W1

 

Is the Huawei Ascend W1 the new king of budget smartphones?

Good looking ; Colourful design ; High quality screen ; Very affordable ; Long battery life ; Good call quality

The screen is a bit reflective, but not any more so than most of today's smartphones, and it has enough brightness on tap for it to still be very usable outdoors in direct sunlight.

Huawei Ascend W1 review

 

Who's ready for a cheap Windows Phone 8 thrill?

Cheap ; Great battery life ; MicroSD slot

Average camera ; Slow web browsing ; No sat nav out of box

You're not going to buy the Huawei Ascend W1 for power, you're going to buy it for practicality and value for money. When you consider the Huawei Ascend W1 will set you back just £120 it's difficult to fault, as you're getting a pretty good deal.

Huawei Ascend W1 Review: First Look

 

Huawei's first foray into Windows Phone is an attractive, lightweight phone, we've expecting to be very competitively priced.

Set to launch in the UK in Q1, the Huawei Ascend will be available exclusively on O2. There’s no news on pricing yet, but O2 and Huawei claim it will be very competitive, so it will be interesting to see if it entices new users to Windows Phone and if...

Huawei Ascend W1 hands-on review

 

At CES 2013 Huawei announced its Full HD Ascend D2 but it also unveiled the Ascend W1. We were there to take a look at Huawei's first Windows Phone 8 smartphone so here's our Ascend W1 hands-on review.

The Huawei Ascend W1 might not be the most exciting and innovative smartphone around but it could well be the best budget Windows Phone option.
