Huawei may not be the best known smartphone manufacturer, but its popularity looks set to increase thanks to their latest flagship smartphone, the Huawei Ascend D Quad. This phone has the specs to compete with some of the best from other manufacturers, and in this article I will introduce you to some of its key features so you can decide if it is the right smartphone for you.
One of the most notable features of the device is its screen. At 4.5 inches it is rather large, and within these dimensions is a pixel resolution of 720x 1280, meaning that you can enjoy high definition movies and games on the handset which are made all the better with the large screen size. IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen technology ensures that display quality is top notch thanks to high levels of brightness and wide viewing angles, and the screen is also very responsive in conjunction with its quad-core processor.
As the name suggests, the Huawei Ascend D Quad packs a powerful 1.5GHz processor under the hood, making it the joint most powerful smartphone in the world along with the likes of the HTC One X. The benefits of this level of processing powerful are numerous, stretching to many areas of the spec list from the screen’s responsiveness to the loading times of apps, and the quality of on screen graphics to name but a few.
As a camera phone, the Huawei Ascend D Quad comes well equipped thanks to an 8 megapixel camera. Therefore, you can of course expect high quality still images, with equally impressive video footage capture in settings of up to 1080p (full HD) included. Even the front facing camera is capable of capturing video in 720p, so you can carry out video calls in high definition with contacts who have a compatible device.
Internet browsing is also a strength of the handset, thanks to 3G speeds of up to 21 Mbps making it one of the fastest out there. Wi-Fi is also supported offering a fast connection with less battery usage and no data allowance usage. The Huawei Ascend D Quad is one of the first smartphones to ship with the new version of Android (v4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich) as standard, so you can enjoy all the new features such as face unlock and Google Beam.
Along with the features outlined above, you also get all the bells and whistles you would expect with any high-end Android smartphone; social networking integration, Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus sound enhancement, 8 GB of storage (with micro SD slot) and of course access to thousands of apps from the newly branded Android Market, now known as Google Play.
If you are looking for something different to the mainstream devices which currently flood the market, but one which has an outstanding spec list, the Huawei Ascend D Quad is definitely worthy of a place on your shortlist of potential new phones.
