Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL Review

With the release of the Ascend D1 Quad XL, the folks from Huawei are ready to play with the big boys when it comes to Android smartphones.

Huawei’s quad-core processor blasts to top spot in benchmarks

Huawei recently announced their brand new Ascend D Quad XL with their own in-house custom built quad-core processor. No Qualcomm or NVIDIA Tegra 3 is present in this device. They've been touting it as the "worlds fastest" and some recently leaked benchmarks might be showing just that. Check out these impressive results below from Nenamark and a few other tests where the new Huawei quad-core tops the charts.

Huawei reveals quad-core Ascend D Quad and D Quad XL

After months of teasing, Huawei's finally pulled the wraps off of its new high-end flagship, the Ascend D Quad. The company intends to play with the big boys by cramming a quad-core processor and a 4.5-inch 720p screen into a svelte 8.9mm Android smartphone - with Ice Cream Sandwich on the side. But what's most interesting isn't necessarily the phone itself: inside you'll find Huawei's own Arm-based quad-core processor, the K3V2. According to Huawei, this new design is both faster and more efficient than Nvidia's Tegra 3, which we were expecting to see - we'll wait until some real-world benchmarks to draw our own conclusions.
