I have had this phone huawei ascend W1 for 11 months now. Always when I check my phone storage, photos, apps n videos take around 350mb space, system takes 1.66gb n there is another icon known as 'others' which is a whopping 1.70gb n it keeps on growing, it has grown to a level that the memory is full. My question is, what are these 'others' which I didn't save n is filling my phone memory n how can I access them n get rid of it? Pliz help

So transfer what you can to a PC, After the reset to factory settings, you will need to perform an update. This will give you the extra options in settings.

this phone is good enough...

i buy this for 199 USD brand new without contract
( i bought the CDMA Phone W1C00, the GSM phone is W1U00...)

The OS is superb smooth..never had any laggy performance, the best internet speed and tethering..
i use cdma operator in my country and touch 5,5 Mbps via tethering which is very good enough for me..

single sim card slot, but can be dual detect network mode..if you put CDMA simcard will be CDMA phone, if you put GSM simcard will be GSM phone...CDMA EVDO REV B and 2G EDGE GSM network.

the battery life is amazing, even compare wih my motorola XT912, still Ascend W1 is the winner.
Using this phone for heavy usage internet, email, social media and asolutely make a phone call and sms, the battery still on for 26 Hours..

No Regret for buy this phone !

It is quite slow in downloading images & videos. Android phones are much more superior than windows phones!

its not a bad phone for the price but there is only 2gb of memory so you run out in like 2 days, and it freezes quite often

Once the bluetooth pairing is successful, scroll to the item you plan to send and hold it for few seconds. A prop up menu comes up, click and share and send through bluetooth.

I can't connect to my new D link N150 DIR600L Cloud WiFi router using my newly purchased Huawei W1 Windows Phone8. Other
Android devices can connect without any problem.

After turning on WiFi switch in my Huawei W1 it can see the SSID of the router but when I connect the error message is:
"Connection unsuccessful Your phone couldn't reach the Wi-Fi network". After trying many many times it did connect once but
after opening Internet Explorer in my W1 it is not going to any site, the error message is:

We're having trouble
displaying this page.

We're having trouble with the page you're
to reach and can't open it right now.

Try the following:
Refresh the page or try again later.

I tried everything, including resetting the phone to factory settings but still it wouldn't connect. I also tried to factory reset
the wifi router and have even removed security (OPEN) without requiring password to login, but still it is not connecting.
Other devices are connecting smoothly.
I have purchased this product because I trusted your brand and
this is my second Huawei phone my first was Y300.
Please help me resolve this problem, It's so frustrating. Thanks

Have this phone for about 6 months. So far, it is a very good smartphone, with a good performance, without lags. I've experienced 'force close' issues with some apps, but that's all. Better phone than Lumia 520, since this one lacks camera flash. In all, I'm very satisfied with Huawei W1. Thanks.
