Devices branded Windows Phone increasingly focused on the fight for a place in your pocket an average of wealthy clients. A typical guy who wants to spend 500-700 gold on the phone and enjoy a multitude of applications, and a pretty good function. 8S HTC Nokia Lumia 620 and is accompanied by a new contender: Huawei Ascend W1. Is it worth it to trust the device from a Chinese corporation?
Discreet elegance. The metallized elements.
Huawei Ascend lump W1 closes in measuring 124.50 x 63.70 x 10.50 mm with a small weight of 130 grams. Rear wall of the unit is made of a rubberized plastic that is designed to provide greater cushioning structure in hand, we must admit that coating that is functioning properly. It is worth paying attention to or characteristic of a convex structure with Huawei main camera. Solution known so far mainly from the world of Android has been adapted to the needs of W1. [Nggallery id = 360 template = techmaniak] On the left side of the housing, in its upper part, there is a volume control button, the bottom wall conceals the entrance to the microUSB port, which – rare – has been moved to the right edge, the upper wall gives us the There audioJack headphone and power button and the right cell wall gives us a physical camera shutter button. Huawei is to be commended, as presented case design is extremely ergonomic and well suited for everyday use. The device is very confident and comfortable in the hand of his service, it's definitely a very high shelf. It is a pity that the Chinese corporation has decided to only three colors: black, white, and black and blue. Vivid colors, which promotes even Lumia 620, could make even more positive emotions in the world of tiles from Microsoft.
Sufficient size and quality
Huawei Ascend W1 has a 4-inch screen with IPS technology TFT, running at a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It is worth noting that the screen was further protected by a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, which will certainly have a positive impact on his life. [Nggallery id = 362 template = techmaniak] Reaction to touch leaves nothing to be desired. Huawei has long ago broke with the image of a Chinese company doing trash with displays supported with fists. W1 model shows that the corporation has chosen a good path of development, which certainly will be able to satisfy most users. In my personal opinion, the quality of the image falls almost as good as the Nokia Lumia 620th competitive It would be difficult to indicate my favorite.
Huawei has supplied its device-capacity lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery with a capacity of 1950 mAh. In standby mode, the phone was able to withstand a few days without much damage to the battery charge. While the average phone usage, the battery used in the Huawei Ascend W1 quietly allowed to keep the phone alive for 3-4 days, which is considered a very good result. An additional advantage is here for open housing body, so you can always replace a new battery cell. Battery test (screen brightness set to 50%):
- conversation: loss of 17% per hour
- work in the browser mode (Wi-Fi): loss of 18% per hour
- work in the browser mode (3G): loss of 20% per hour
- work in playback mode, WiFi enabled, playing video in full screen mode – loss of 11% per hour
- work in playback mode, WiFi is not active, playing a movie in full screen mode – loss of 10% per hour
- work in console mode – loss of 18% per hour
Charge time from 15% ~ 1 hour and 50 minutes.
Correct, fully sufficient to compete with the competition
Huawei Ascend W1 offers the user a number of functional and useful standards. On board we find even v802.11b/g/n WiFi, USB v.2.0, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS and WiFi Hotspot feature. Unfortunately ran out of proximity NFC module, which are increasingly appears as a very useful technology in the world around us. Huawei Ascend W1 seamlessly supports all major GSM bands.
The speed and stability. Unfortunately, a small number of original solutions
Windows Phone 8, installed by default on your work here very quickly and smoothly. Qualcomm MSM8230 dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and 512 MB RAM provide enough power to mobile windows were not susceptible to breath, how well-known from the world of Android. [Nggallery id = 364 template = techmaniak] I wish we did not choose the Huawei engineers the same path as Nokia, as the Finnish against the competition, we discuss the phone can not knock on my knees a lot of dedicated applications. Frankly, copyright applications almost here and there are some features, like application guide is not yet supported on Polish territory. It must be answered by the correct number of applications can be found already in the Marketplace, which allows us to largely match the Huawei Ascend W1 to our individual expectations. I hasten to inform all the "office" that we find here MS Office, exactly the same as the devices native of Finland.
Quickly, efficiently, without Flash
[Nggallery id = 366 template = techmaniak] Internet Explorer running extremely smoothly here. Is there any need for this, to be interested in third-party applications. Like in other phones running the WP8, you can let go of the top built using Flash, because the support for this technology does not exist. Optimizing Facebook contacts and performs well, everything runs very smoothly and the device is not expressed the slightest desire to break WiFi signal. Ascend W1 well operator keeps the signal so that surfing using 3G standard is not associated with problems.
Nice sound, not much of supported video formats.
Like other devices with WP8 on board, Ascend W1 can not boast support for many popular formats, like. Rmvb and. MKV. It should, however, pay attention to the seamless support files. Avi, even those recorded in HD. Music or rather the sound quality is pretty strong point device under test. [Nggallery id = 368 template = techmaniak] The sound is clean and reasonable as far as the rear speaker placement makes it hard to cover the whole area of the hand. Huawei on headphones fits well with the wider mediocrity and support for microSD cards (up to 32 GB) allows you to quickly expand our database of audio and video files. Tested Media:
- mkv, 1080p, h264, 40Mbps: does not play

Phone and keyboard
Clean, elegant and functional
here could copy the paragraph from any other phone reviews're on a Windows Phone 8, Microsoft apparently because the producers would not let go of the default solution. And yes, we get at the disposal of an elegant, very transparent and clear phone application. Even a layman who has never had a smart phone in your hand, you immediately understand the rules that prevail here without any trouble and start using the phone mode. As for the keyboard, well, it does not stand out compared to other cells with WP8 on board. Dictionary looks very solid and well thought keyboard layout allows for a fully comfortable writing "esów" even in portrait orientation, as on many other phones running the green robot is not so obvious. It is difficult to be commended for these solutions Huawei, as the applause should be directed towards Microsoft, but the fact remains that it is still one of the cleanest and best-performing solutions available on the market.
Camera and Video
The device has a primary camera of 5 megapixel sensor, additionally supported by a single LED illuminate. Maximum resolution photos which are stored is 2592×1944 pixels. Photos taken in good lighting conditions facing the average, but it seems that it was to optimize the camera (and quality) comes the relatively low price of the device. Although the photographs do not stand out, and without much effort you can make a pretty good photo quality, it certainly could fall photo mode a little bit better.
