On the red corner, we have the Nokia Lumia 520; on the blue corner, we have the Huawei Ascend W1 – both WP8 devices that sell for less than Php10k. Today, we put them in the spec stadium to see which device gives a better bang for the buck.


The Nokia Lumia 520 sells in for Php7,990 while the Huawei Ascend W1 goes for a higher Php8,990. That’s an exact Php1,000 difference. If you look at the chart down below, you can see that both have slight similarities and major differences.

The major categories in which the Nokia Lumia 520 trumps the Huawei Ascend W1 is in memory as it gives you double with 8GB of internal and up to 64GB of external. Also, it’s slightly thinner & lighter.  However, for an extra thousand, the Huawei Ascend W1 gives you a faster CPU, an LED flash, a front-facing camera and a bigger battery.

Which of the two will be getting your bet? We have yet to review these devices, so stay tuned as real world performance is greatly different from just specs.
