How do l attatch a photo in emails?coz am not able to send any photo throu email
Got the Ascend W1 a few days ago and very pleased with it so far. As a budget end device everything about it is pretty "middle of the road" but it's not competing with the likes of the Nokia 920 or an iPhone.
The design of the phone is pretty ordinary and the build quality seems very good. The screen is nice and bright and I have no complaints with it.
Camera is 5MP and won't win any awards but again it's a budget phone so don't complain too loudly. If you take a few photos occasionally it'll be fine. The photos are far from terrible.
The battery life is the big selling point of this device. 1950mAh battery paired with the lower end internals means this device should easily get 2-3 days on a charge. You'd have to watch video and be downloading stuff all day to run it down in a single day.
4GB storage is the only negative really. With WP8 itself taking close to 2GB you're not left with much so this is definitely not the phone for app-addicts or people taking a thousand photos every week. You can extend it with a microSD card though.
This device is clearly in battle with the HTC 8S and the Lumia 520. The 8S is only 4GB too and it lacks a front facing camera. The Lumia 520 has 8GB storage (and nokia apps) but again no front facing camera. If you do a lot of video calling you'll want the front facing camera on the Ascend W1.
If you understand the device is aimed at the more casual user or first time smartphone user you'll not be disappointed. I mainly use it for mail, social networks, some browsing and the occasional game of solitaire. I use skype occasionally to call relatives overseas and it does all of these simple things perfectly. If you're looking to try out WP8 to see if you like it this a pretty inexpensive device to do your testing.
Pretty much 8/10 across the board. If it had 8GB storage this would be the best lower end WP8 device on the market by a massive distance.
Fonekweizy, 14 Jul 2013can you download games? Does the brand have an appstore where you can download apps?Yes, Windows Phone has a app store. Nothing like Android but decent enough. It has apps in all the major categories but still doesn't have some well known apps. It's growing though.

jkmacharia, 07 Jul 2013Use windows 7 or windows 8 perhaps you are using xpLOL. That's funny.
Cannot access the internal and external sd card while connected to a computer, you have to eject the external sd card first before accessing the internal phone memory, external memory card can only be accessed using memory card reader.
This should be fixed, but seems like MS and huawei are not listening.

How can you view your documents, if you have transferred it thru micrsosd card and... moreHow can you view your documents, if you have transferred it thru micrsosd card and not thru email nor bluetooth? -> Via third party apps. For e.g third party pdf reader reads pdfs in sd card. Kirik Search app shows and opens files on SD card.
How can you delete those applications, that were interrupted during installation, and no plan to continue to install? -> click on any app that got interrupted, it will take you to app downloads section. Then deep press on the apps, it will show you the option 'cancel download'. Pressing on it will remove the partially downloaded/installed apps.
how can you clean an application(clearing the data)?
-example if you want to restart a game- -> I did not understand this. Do you mean start a game from beginning? Simply go to the tile or icon. If you mean install from the beginning simply reinstall. If you mean you have progressed certain levels and want to start over, the app has to enable this, or you can reinstall.
How can you delete those unnecessary files that you have mistakenly downloaded? -> The question is from where did the download take place. Generally it is up to that app, although apps can poorly manage their cache.
-Do you think windows phone should be considered as smart phone? -> I think only two operating sytems can be called smartphone OSes.... iOS and WP. Both are secure, app based and well integrated.
And also, why you have to log in again on facebook after updating. -> I did not get this. Is it the built in facebook thing? That is a single sign-in, no need to login again. If you mean through browser, I did not face the issue. I do not use the official app, it got updated some days back, so maybe the problem existed and got solved.
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2013Do you know how to root Jelly Bean to support App2sdWell rooting is a totally different thing. Actually Ascend W1 is the only Windows Phone 8 handset whose bootloader can be unlocked. There is a custom ROM available and hopefully will bring install to SD.
