Huawei Ascend Y 100 Review: In Depth
25 July 2012
Conclusion: The Huawei Ascend Y 100 has some surprising features for the price, namely the 800MHz processor and Android Gingerbread, but the camera is poor, the tiny screen makes typing difficult and the design is dated.
Pros: Android Gingerbread, 800Mhz processor
Cons: Tiny screen, Touch controls don’t always respond, Poor camera
Summary: It’s hard to beat a handset for $99, and the Huawei Ascend Y100 could prove to be a decent smartphone for anyone after a cheap net-capable mobile handset, but it’s certainly not going to steal the crown from Apple’s iPhone or Samsung’s Galaxy S3 any time soon.
Pros: Very friendly to the wallet, Surprisingly responsive screen
Cons: Tiny screen doesn't fit much text or make it easy to use the on-screen keyboard, Some apps and games can offer weak performance, Terrible camera, Locked to Vodafone
The Ascend Y100 has a tiny screen, a mediocre camera and average performance but for under $100, can you really complain?

Pros: Value for money, Some nice UI touches, Decent battery life
Cons: Tiny screen, Poor default keyboard, Can be sluggish at times

Summary: The Huawei Ascend Y100 is one of the smallest smartphones we’ve encountered and offers a budget means of enjoying your usual smartphone oferings. But that small display and mediocre snapper will be a letdown for media fans and photographers
