Review: Huawei Ascend D Quad XL

Ascend D Quad XL, the new smartphone device from Huawei was announced on February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

This smartphone device sports a 4.5-inch display with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and its pixel density matches Apple’s Retina display.

The device has a bright and vibrant screen and measures 129 x 64 x 10.9 mm  and weighs around 150 grams.

Huawei introduced this latest smartphone with their in-house K3V2 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. You can call it the world’s fastest quad-core smartphone.

This super fast device also holds a 1GB of RAM, a microSD slot, MHL connectivity, DLNA support, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear shooter.

This Ascend D Quad XL runs on Android 4.0.4, the Ice Cream Sandwich and powered by a 2,600 mAh unremovable battery, which is enough to deliver a full day’s charge under normal conditions.

The Ascend D Quad XL camera is doing well but it isn’t a high-end shooter. The 8 megapixel camera takes good pictures in even lighting but the shutter makes an unbearable sound which is annoying.


It is a high quality device with fast performance and great specs. The only drawback we feel in the device is the lack of Jelly Bean Operating system.
