Small and beautiful
Display and Configuration
The Huawei Ascend Y221 features a 3.5-inch LCD multi-touch display. It ships with Android v4.4 KitKat OS out of the box. Driving the processes of the smartphone is a 1GHz dual-core processor based on MediaTek MT6572 chipset paired with a paltry 512MB RAM.
Camera and Storage
In the camera department, the Huawei Ascend Y221 has a single 2MP digital camera at the back. The absence of front camera is a huge disappointment. It has an onboard storage capacity of 4GB and a microSD slot expandable up to 32GB.
Battery and Connectivity
In order to deliver uninterrupted service for a decent period of time, the Huawei Ascend Y221 is fuelled by a 1,350mAh Li-ion battery. The connectivity and networking features loaded in this dual SIM smartphone include 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS/AGPS, USB port and Mobile hotspot.
Go for the Huawei Ascend Y221 if you need a small and affordable smartphone running on Android KitKat platform. While the support for 3G at this price tag is commendable, the low RAM might limit you from running powerful apps or games.
