Huawei Ascend Y100 review

 

Build quality is about what you would expect at this price. The Ascend Y100 doesn't feel like a premium phone, but it doesn't really feel flimsy, either. We like the matte black finish, which Huawei says is an anti-fingerprint surface, though the...

The Huawei Ascend Y100 has a tiny screen, a mediocre camera and average performance. However, it's all about the price in this instance. At £59, we can't fault the Ascend Y100 too much. If you're patient and can live with a cramped screen, then this is...

Huawei Y 100 Review

 

The Huawei Y 100 is a pretty cheap smartphone. It's only £79.99 and is a diddy little thing which could be the ideal first smartphone for youngsters, pensioners and those that have been scared off smartphones by the price.

The new $99 phone: Huawei’s Y100 reviewed

 

It's hard to beat a handset for $99, and the Huawei Ascend Y100 could prove to be a decent smartphone for anyone after a cheap net-capable mobile handset, but it's certainly not going to steal the crown from Apple's iPhone or Samsung's Galaxy S3 any...

Very friendly to the wallet, Surprisingly responsive screen

Tiny screen doesn't fit much text or make it easy to use the on-screen keyboard, Some apps and games can offer weak performance, Terrible camera, Locked to Vodafone
