Notebookcheck
13 May 2013
  • Summary: Huawei Gets things done. Huawei now releases a Windows 8 smartphone on the market dubbed Ascend W1. It features a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8230 SoC and a 4 GB internal flash memory. With a street price of below 200 Euros (~$259), it wants to cater to new smartphone users and price conscious buyers.
  • Pros: Bright, high-contrast IPS screen, Decent application performance, Great build, Storage expandable via micro SD, Besides the good screen, the decent equipment featuring a micro SD card reader and Microsoft Office Mobile.
  • Cons: Low-capacity internal storage, Tight working memory, At least 1 GB of RAM would have been needed to run all apps. Also, more than the scanty 2 GB of net storage capacity.

Huawei Ascend W1 Review

Mobile Choice UK
23 February 2013
  • Conclusion: At £199, Huawei’s Ascend W1 is a stylish four-inch mid-range smartphone that will suit first-timers and constant travellers. It’s just a shame Huawei didn’t throw extra value into Windows Phone 8 like Nokia.
  • Pros: Colourful and durable design; Comfortable one-handed use; Decent budget camera; Colourful screen
  • Cons: No extra features like Nokia; Lack of decent apps

  • Conclusion: Huawei weet met de Huawei Ascend W1 duidelijk een verassende smartphone neer te zetten, een smartphone met zowel plus- als minpunten. Om te beginnen lijkt het Chinese bedrijf de perfecte combinatie gevonden te hebben tussen CPU en GPU, om de maximale prestaties uit het toestel te persen zonder dat dit ten kosten gaat van de batterijduur.
  • Pros: Prestaties perfect uitgebalanceerd;, Goede accuduur;, Prijs/kwaliteitsverhouding is goed;
  • Cons: Slechts 4GB opslagcapaciteit;, Camera niet meer dan redelijk;

Test: Huawei Ascend W1 (Handy)

CHIP Online
22 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Im Test zeigt das Huawei Ascend W1, dass Windows Phones nicht teuer sein müssen. Wir halten ihm die saubere Verarbeitung, den ausdauernden Akku und eine klare Akustik zugute. Luft nach oben gibt's bei Kamera und Performance.
  • Pros: Gute Verarbeitung, Lange Akkulaufzeit beim Surfen, Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Bei Tageslicht gute Fotos, allerdings...
  • Cons: ...maue Aufnahmen bei Kunst- und Kneipenlicht, Kleiner interner Speicher, niedrige Displayauflösung, Animationen bremsen Arbeitstempo
