Nokia Lumia 520 vs Huawei Ascend W1 : Cheapest in the Philippines for Nokia

Written By Real Kevin Jay on Monday, April 15, 2013 | 9:09 AM

This is one for the books: The P8,990 Huawei Ascend W1 held the "Cheapest Windows Phone 8 device in the Philippines" record for only two days; Nokia Philippines has officially announced the availability of the Nokia Lumia 520. The price? P7,990.
Everyone who has ever wanted to try the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system has more reasons to do so now that prices have gone below the P10,000 mark. 
So which is the right Windows Phone 8 gadget for you? We take a look at what's on paper because we only have the Huawei Ascend W1 with us. We don't have the Nokia Lumia 520 yet.
At first glance, you'd think that Nokia's bet is the clear winner. But once you get past the price and check out the specs, you'd understand why there's a P1,000 difference.
Spec comparison: Nokia Lumia 520 vs Huawei Ascend W1
Some advantages of the Huawei Ascend W1:
  • The chipset is better.
  • The CPU speed is faster.
  • The rear camera has flash.
  • It has a front camera; the Nokia Lumia 520 has none.
  • The cell is bigger at 1,950mAh and should most likely translate to a longer battery life.
 On the other hand, what's going for the Nokia Lumia 520 are the following:
  • Larger internal storage by 4GB.
  • Slightly slimmer and lighter.
  • MicroSD slot can take up to 64GB cards.
So it's really just a matter of what you needfor now, at least. Again, we haven't had our hands on the Nokia Lumia 520 yet. All we have is the Huawei Ascend W1, which we're loving thus far.
