Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL ( unlocked)

 

Back in February, when Huawei announced at Mobile World Congress that it would release the world's fastest phone in the form of the Ascend D1 Quad (and its bigger-batteried counterpart, the XL), our interest was piqued. At that time, a quad-core phone...

The Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL 's camera is packed with editing features, and its user interface has several customization options.

The Ascend D1 Quad XL's screen is dim, its photo quality is poor, and it has a hefty build.

While its processor may sound impressive, the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL is a mediocre phone in a sea of excellent quad-core alternatives.

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

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

Huawei's first quad-core device is sufficiently fast and powerful, but will likely be quickly forgotten amidst a sea of strong competition.

Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL

 

When Google released the first version of its mobile operating system back in 2007, a lot of people said it was going to be huge. Fast forward five years, and Android handsets truly are huge—literally. More and more models are being released with...

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...

The crowning feature of the Huawei Ascend D1 is large 4.5in screen with a resolution of 1280x720.

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

The Huawei Ascend D1 may not be a flagship model smartphone, but it has very impressive specifications. The crowning feature is a large 4.5in screen with a resolution of 1280x720. There's no word on an Australian release just yet.
