Lately, a newborn China brand, Axgio, has launched their first product Wing W2, by upgrading the original OS from iWing WTD2. Its debut on TinyDeal has many spotlights to attract our eyes, and here we are to find something new on the device.
The Axgio Wing W2 is going a similar way as the Doogee DG2014, by providing a nice design and a thin body at a low price. As the price is lower than Doogee DG2014, the hardware specs seems to suffer a bit, but exactly in many aspects it performs better. The Wing W2 is basically the same hardware base in terms of processor, RAM and screen. However, the same specifications do not mean the same performance and experience all the time, after a couple of days’ use and comparison, we found the differences here.
First off the bat is the look of W2. The slightly frosting flat back cover adds a unique element of style, while the DG2014 is a little curved on the edge. As we remove the back cover and insert the SIM card, it is apparently to found that Wing W2 is easier to take out the back cover than DG2014, also the power key and volume keys of W2 are fix on the back cover instead of the side of fuselage. In terms of the design we have to say that Axgio really made an effort here.
Powered on the device, we experienced the biggest difference we mentioned between the two phones, the DG2014 runs the Jelly Bean OS similar to native Android, but Wing W2 runs the homemade Neonado OS. So what’s new on Neonado OS? It is quite mentionable that it uses “Trim Rounded Rectangle” icons and redesigns a different lock screen, with which you can directly view the current date, time and even weather. Another biggest feature is the innovative aerial view screen. You can bring up the interface by long pressing the HOME key or swipe the screen. In this aerial view screen, besides the running program to manage switching, it also focused on a key clean-up, multi-tasking switching, traffic monitoring, alarm and power-saving mode, as well as a key scan function, the phone status with a glance understanding.
DG2014 claims to have a 6.3mm ultra-thin design, but we should believe that occurs on the “thinnest part”, in all, the phone may be around 7-9mm in fact. For the W2, rounded corner design with 8mm thickness is relatively dependable in many ways. Both Wing W2 and DG2014 come with 4 colors optional, but the golden back cover of W2 is more attractive and elegant in a way.
Doogee DG2014 has two SIM card slots, one for standard SIM card, the other for micro SIM card. So if you do not have a MicroSim Cutter is would be a little troubled. Wing W2 uses two standard SIM card slots to make it convenient, that’s what we admired very much here. In terms of prices, Wing W2 also beat DG2014 down undoubtedly with only $99.99.
In conclusion, The Axgio Wing W2 is a nice looking low cost phone with mostly good build quality. The performance of W2 will exceed your expectations. On many levels, the phone is quite excellent.
