Verdict

Huawei Ascend W2 possesses the most advanced features of today’s times. Being the slimmest Windows 8 phone available in the market till date, this device ensures its user to carry a style statement all the time. It is expected to give a tough competition to the Nokia Lumia 920 that too runs on Windows 8 OS and in addition also has got NFC feature but lacks a Micro SD slot.
