Does the Huawei Ascend 5W have a GPS


The tech specs for this phone at Huawei Ascend | Republic Wireless

GPS is not in the list. Oversight or does the phone really not have one?

I can’t think of the last time a phone was made without GPS. It’s got to be there.

I agree it would be hard to fathom a phone w/o GPS these days. I’m also curious how large of a MicroSD card this will take. I suspect once Huawei release specs officially or somebody like GSMArena gets their mitts on info we may not have definitive answers on this.



And actually very few of the phones in the RW specs listing show GPS. The Moto X Pure does not for instance, but it does have GPS (I have this phone). I would rely on Android Police of GSMArena details specs as RW does not seem to be able to publish them. For me, GPS and MicroSD capacity would make or break this phone as a Christmas gift for the kids. If I knew it would take a 128 Gbyte card I’d be in for four.



According to another thread it has GPS and FM radio - does the Huawei Ascend 5W have fm radio and gps?
