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.

How can you view your documents, if you have transferred it thru micrsosd card and not thru email nor bluetooth?
How can you delete those applications, that were interrupted during installation, and no plan to continue to install?
how can you clean an application(clearing the data)?
-example if you want to restart a game-
How can you delete those unnecessary files that you have mistakenly downloaded?
-Do you think windows phone should be considered as smart phone?
And also, why you have to log in again on facebook after updating.
Well anyway, Windows Phone is very smooth and user friendly, but only for call and text.

Why should a phone force user to manage his files or data? A smartphone should be capable of that.
AnonD-146799, 04 Jul 2013Microsoft has already released GDR2 to all manufacturers, it now depends on HuaweiYes, GDR2 is now available, but the question is will the W1 user get the updates? We all know that Huawei's support for their costumers is not the same as other phone company.

And on android phone, you can manage all your files and you can say that you really own the phone, unlike windows, you cannot manage your files, because windows phone will let you scratch your head every time you use the phone.
Beware, coz you might get a defective W1, and Huawei will not replace your defective Unit.

You can use a downloader app like GetThemAll (free) to download using IE. You can set any song as ringtone by copying that song to ringtones folder. FM Radio is confirmed in upcoming GDR2 update.

Pretty nice budget phone. Main problems are internal storage which actually is not 4gb, you'll find 1.8gb of 4gb free. This limits apps you wanna install since apps cannot be saved in the SD card. Battery life too is different from what you guys have stated in the specs. When the battery is 100% the cellphone shows you estimated time left is 7hrs till you charge again.
Skype works pretty good in W1, you can chat with people regardless of what they are using: PC or phone.
I don't know why the cellphone heats at the camera after using it for some time. In general its a good cellphone considering its price, like for instance I spent 200$ purchasing it. In my opinion W1 is way better compared to Nokia Lumia which lacks LED flash and VGA camera.
Huawei should have indicated on their manual that THE DATA SENSE APPLICATION is exclusive for Verizon.
Some of the users bought this phone, thinking that the said Application is included on the package.
Anyway, this phone is very cheap, so we should also expect a CHEAP PERFORMANCE AND A CHEAP SUPPORT.
thing bout a W1, 02 Jul 2013According to another review I just read, you can NOT store apps on the Micro sd card. Yes, we cannot install Apps on external sd card, which means, 4gb storage windows phone is not a smart phone, will only be used for calls and text.
