It appears, the Huawei Ascend W1 will soon arrive to Net10, a prepaid subsidiary of TracFone USA. The phone will be sold initially on Amazon, while the product page has been published, the device is still unpriced. Huawei originally sold the Ascend W1 for about £166 and Amazon may sell it at slightly less expensive price.
It comes with the bright IPS display, which is rarely seen at this price category. The Ascend W1 also has above-average battery life and compelling physical design. Qualcomm’s dual-core processor is capable enough in ensuring swift operations during routines usages, although the 512MB would limit the multitasking capability significantly.
Like many entry-level Windows Phone 8 handsets, the W1 also suffers from the outrageously small amount of internal storage, at just 2GB. The microSD card slot won’t fully solve this issue, since users can only store multimedia files on external memory, not third party apps. There are so many things to consider when buying a budget smartphone, but the Ascend W1 is still appropriate for average users.
