Smartphones are fast becoming more powerful companions as more quad-core phones are introduced to the market. Huawei doesn’t want to be left out in that space and created the Huawei Ascend D quad XL U9510E.
This new phone from Huawei features its homegrown Huawei K3V2 quad-core processor. Aside from snappy processing hardware, the phone also provides pleasurable multimedia playback. In terms of thickness and weight, though, the phone may not be the sleekest, but it does have an enviable battery bank rated at 2,600 mAh.
Can this phone stand up to the other quad-core titans in the Android smartphones market? Let’s look more closely at Huawei’s [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 – probably the most popular Android smartphone to ever go into production – has been announced at the beginning of the month, and it’s only a few days away from its debut in several European markets.
Now, one major question arises among Android fans worldwide: are there any Android smartphones that can compete head to head with the newest member of the Samsung Galaxy S line?
Before we jump into a detailed analysis of the smartphones that can rival the S3, allow me to spoil some of the fun by providing a quick answer to that question. Yes, there are Android smartphones (either only announced or already on the market) that [...]
Since all Android smartphone manufacturers run the exact same OS (and the vast majority of the apps as well) on their devices, the people in charge of the marketing departments of such manufacturers often seem to believe that the only way to differentiate their products from those of other manufacturers is by creating custom UIs that they slam on top of Android’s standard (also known as vanilla) user interface. But although they’ve got the “differentiating” part just about right, I’m not sure exactly how many smartphone users go for a specific manufacturer over the other because the custom UI is better. In fact, if anything, Android users usually go for the [...]
The guys at Huawei made quite a stir at MWC earlier this year, when they announced the upcoming release of the Ascend D Quad XL, Huawei’s claim to the title of “world’s fastest smartphone”.
While most of us weren’t exactly sold by their very bold statement, a benchmark leaked a couple of weeks ago seemed to confirm Huawei’s claims. The Basemark ES 2.0 Taiji scores at that time placed the Ascend D Quad XL, powered by the quad-core K2V3 chipset, in front of the Galaxy Note and the Asus Transformer Prime, which we all thought were the two most powerful Android devices available on the market.
Powered by Samsung’s dual-core Exynos processor and Nvidia’s Tegra [...]
Huawei has come forth with the release date of the Ascend D Quad smartphone. The quad-core device, which Huawei envisions as its bridgehead to the bustling Western markets, will only go into production this June, with a shipping date set for July.
If the report from CNMO is accurate, this late debut will put the Huawei Ascend D Quad behind the other quad-core smartphones that will compete for mindshare and the consumer’s money. Two other Android flagship devices are coming out this summer, the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3. The former will come this April to the UK (and probably Europe), and in June to the US. As for the Samsung Galaxy S3, depending on [...]
Back at the start of the month, we’ve covered Pockenow’s claim that T-Mobile has decided on Huawei as the manufacturer for the next smartphone in the mid-range T-Mobile myTouch series. Obviously, under these conditions, the leak of a couple of pics of the keyboard-less version (one with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard is also planned) is not exactly the most unexpected news. It is nice to catch a glimpse of the actual device though, as most couldn’t make much of the renders we had last time when we covered the subject. As it turns out, the myTouch Huawei smartphone looks a lot like the HTC Desire-based Google Nexus One. Here are the two, side by side! Notice the [...]
When Huawei took stage at MWC and introduced the Ascend D Quad XL as the fastest smartphone in the world, we weren’t entirely convinced by such a bold assertion, especially as it came from a manufacturer that used to mingle in the mid to lower class neighborhoods of Android city. But there might be some truth to Huawei’s claim, as the latest benchmark scores have revealed how Ascend D Quad XL trumped other smartphones in the speed department.
The Huawei Ascend D Quad XL, which is powered by the company’s own K3V2 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 16 core GPU, narrowly beaten the Galaxy Note’s 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor on the Basemark ES benchmark test. [...]
