Solid performance ; (Mostly) vanilla Android UI ; High-definition IPS display

Video capture is choppy ; Limited onboard storage ; Thick for its form factor

Huawei Ascend D1 XL Review

 

Big on specs, small on price.

Good specs, nice screen and amazing battery life

Old version of Android, strictly ok camera and build quality

The Ascend D1 does quite a few things right but at the same time falters in areas it shouldn’t have. For example, not providing Jelly Bean 4.1 out of the box at the end of 2012 is not really excusable. On the other hand the screen and one-handed usage...

4.5in display ; Only 8.9mm thick ; Likely to be competitively priced

Huawei Ascend D1

 

First Look: We get hands on with the cheaper, dual-core sibling to the Ascend D Quad.
