Huawei Ascend D1


First Look: We get hands on with the cheaper, dual-core sibling to the Ascend D Quad.

Overall, though, the Huawei could well be a serious contender in the mid to high end of the phone market, particularly if Huawei representatives' claims that it's likely to undercut comparative handsets by some 20% turn out to be true.

Solid performance ; (Mostly) vanilla Android UI ; High-definition IPS display

Video capture is choppy ; Limited onboard storage ; Thick for its form factor

Huawei's first quad-core device is sufficiently fast and powerful, but will likely be quickly forgotten amidst a sea of strong competition.

The crowning feature of the Huawei Ascend D1 is large 4.5in screen with a resolution of 1280x720.

Huawei’s $499 Ascend D1 quad-core phone reviewed


Huawei's first attempt at a quad-core phone is a pretty successful one, creating a phone that has more positive points than negative ones, and provides competition for Google's own Nexus 4.

Great price for the specs, Excellent processor performance, A quad-core phone with battery life that goes beyond a day, Reasonably up-to-date incarnation of Android

Camera quality is pretty poor, Download speeds aren't high
