Huawei took everyone by surprise at the Mobile World Congress 2012 when it announced the release of Ascend D Quad along with a full range of smartphones and tablets. The Huawei Ascend D Quad definitely stole the show with its premium look and geeky features.
The Ascend D Quad comes in three variants – XL, D1 and D1 LTE. The XL sports a larger battery among the three variants, D1 LTE supports LTE connectivity, and D1 sports dual-core processor. Let us have a closer look at Ascend D Quad XL.
Features of Huawei Ascend D Quad XL
Ascend D Quad XL sports a smart and minimalistic design with striped pattern. The handset is quite handy and sits nicely on the palm. With a dimension of 129x64x8.9mm, it is definitely big but not too big to get messy. Weighing 130g, the Ascend D Quad XL also slides into pocket easily, especially when compared to other quad-core handsets.
The Huawei Ascend D Quad XL sports a unique design that sports paradoxical elements. Its thin profile and conservative look is contradicted by its design that seems like a rip off of Samsung Galaxy SII. Besides, extensive use of plastic exudes a very Huawei-like touch and feel, if not premium. A groundbreaking design would have been much welcome.
Finally, Huawei impresses the buyers with high-end screen technologies. Ascend D Quad XL offers 4.5-inch HD screen without making the handset very bulky and unmanageable. Pixel density of the screen is commendable. The IPS-LCD screen with 720x1280p resolution renders true colors and wide and accurate viewing angles.
Under the hood, Ascend D Quad XL runs on the proprietary quad-core 1.5GHz K3V2 processor and hence the name. This comes as a fresh air and offers an alternative to smartphones running on nVIDIA Tegra 3 processors. The processor is supported by 1GB RAM. The K3V2 processor has 16 cores.
Although it does not mean that it would be faster than most smartphones, it certainly indicates the possibility of better advantages. The processor will be a treat for hard-core gamers. Integrated games such as Samurai Vengeance and Guerilla Bob play smoothly. The HD screen is another advantage as it would spice up the gaming visuals.
The best thing about Ascend D Quad XL is that it is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This gives this Huawei phone a good stand against other market leaders who have not yet upgraded to the latest Android version. This also allows Huawei to break away from the tag of ‘poor software-enabled phone makers’. However, it does not allow customization of the integrated user interface. Backed up by the quad-core processor, Ascend D Quad XL handles tasks quite smoothly.
Ascend D Quad XL sports an 8MP camera with twin-LED flash. The camera manages to capture considerable images in darkness but it does not make false claims of its camera.
The Ascend D Quad XL is powered by 2500mAh battery as against the 1800mAh battery found in Ascend D1 and D1 LTE models. The bigger battery adds to the bulk, which however is nothing in comparison to the Motorola Droid Razr.
Huawei Ascend D Quad XL is definitely the phone to reach out for. It offers a break from the conventional leaders such as iPhone, Galaxy SII, etc. and sports a smart, ergonomic and minimalistic design with power-packed performance.
