Nice phone but i don't like the windows 8...i feel like my phone owns me n not the other way round.I don't have control over it and the fact that there are very few applications available on Microsoft store is just another pain in the ass. Is it possible to install Android on this phone????

That is a 1.2Ghz Dual Core KRAIT S4 Snapdragon. The Lumia 920 has a 1.5Ghz Dual Core S4 - So all those saying this phone has low specs clearly do not know Minimum specs for a Windows phone and are in for a surprise.

Nice specs, equal to lumia 620 if not better and definitely better than lumia 510
Hope it does better in the app area if its going to compete with the droids.

am from kenya and am amazed at some of the comments here. if u can afford high end fones good for u. niw shut the f*** up no one cares. wat are u even doing on gsm arena if u don't want this fone. go shop on apple. buy expensive fones with the same performance as this huawei, but are being sold so much more expensive because of the brand name and becoz pple like u in 3rd world countries like the rest of us, think image is more important than economy and practicability. if ur so rich get outta gsm arena! no one cares wat u can afford. I for one think this is a good innitiative kudos. give us more cheap but quality stuff.

I really don't get why people are insulting windows and huawei's attempt 2 save africa from going broke trying to look has been told that the phone is not to be produced with low quality components.. And people still don't understand that every body likes the idea of using a quality smart phone but not all can afford.. I am a Nigerian and nigeria is still a developing 3rd world country and ideas like this should be welcomed. If u are rich.. Shut up and get an iphone or a lumia .. Not everybody can afford it in a country with less than $150 as minimum wage! Want 2 ask questions??? Folllow @bigruki on twitter
