High performance at a reasonable cost, but can it ever be considered over the more popular manufacturers' offerings?
There's a pretty decent chance you've used a Huawei phone without even knowing it. A longtime seller of spec devices, Huawei has started to step into the competitive arena that is the high-end smartphone market. For 2012, Huawei offers this, the Ascend D Quad XL.
When the Ascend D Quad XL was first shown off by Huawei at Mobile World Congress back in February, it was touted as “the fastest smartphone in the world.” We hear a lot of claims about specs, but “fastest” isn’t exactly something you can measure accurately. By today’s standards, it’s likely that it isn’t going to best the top of the top -- but what really matters is the real-world user experience. Does the Ascend D Quad XL have what it takes to pull users away from the likes of Samsung, HTC and LG? Read on and find out.
