ThL W100 Review by RedFerret.net
After a first, very promising review of the “ThL W100” by Android Authority, RedFerret.net took its turn judging this Quad Core Android Phone. ThL is an up and coming Phone manufacturer in the west and has been well established in China for over 10 year. Its latest release in a long line of phones is the W100 which can be your for just $159.
The RedFerret firstly compared what goodies the phone comes with, with what you get when you buy a top end branded phone and noticed that the “ThL W100” comes with exactly the same accessories, minus the designer label and the price tag, which is of course, much lower!
Moving on to the specifications, this is what they’ve had to say:
“It’s a fact that while most of us in the media obsess about things like ultra high screen resolution and mega benchmarks, the general guy or girl in the street worries more about affordability and value for money. Those with the cash and the need for a label will never buy cheap, but for the rest of us lavish spending is often not an option. Judging by this latest model, THL is well on the way towards establishing a reputation for delivering excellent value for money, by offering a generous amount of bang for your buck so to speak.”
In comparison with its earlier cousin, the “ThL W5” (which the RedFerret also reviewed) they notice that the GPS works flawlessly but advice users to turn on the A-GPS and EPO assistance which is not switched on by default. And here is how you do it. Open the settings, navigate to Location Access and head over to GPS Satellites where both function can then be turned on.

If you are interested in hard numbers, then these benchmarks are worth checking out.
According to the RedFerret the W100 is more than a match for just about anything you can throw at it, and the beautifully responsive screen is a pleasure to use.
To conclude the RedFerret wrote:
For the consumer it’s win-win. The phone is fast, stable, responsive and comes with all the features you expect a top end smartphone to ship with, but at a fraction of the price. Apps and games run faultlessly, Google Play is fully accessible and features like the dual always-on SIMs deliver an added touch of value to an already great package.
If you’re in the market for a new Android phone or an upgrade, you’d do well to add this budget model to your list. It may not impress the phone snobs, but then again that’s a race no-one ever wins, eh?
