Huawei Ascend W2 Now Official: Huawei’s Second Windows Phone

The Huawei Ascend P1, the company’s first Windows Phone gained some attention mainly because of its low price point and being the best alternative to Nokia’s low end bestseller, the Lumia 520. So, Huawei released its successor, the Ascend W2. Most of the specs are better than the previous model. My gripes, however, are the lack of expandable storage and front facing camera.
