Huawei Ascend D1 Quad kicks butt in benchmarks

Huawei Ascend D1 Quad kicks butt in benchmarksWe were quite impressed with the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad when we gave it a spin at Mobile World Congress. The Chinese manufacturer’s build quality has come a long way, and with an expected pricing around 80% of its rivals, the Ascend D1 Quad looks set to do very well.

Huawei claims that its in-house quad-core processor – the K3V2 – makes the Ascend D1 Quad the “world’s fastest phone”, and a couple of benchmarks give credence to that notion.

The first, from Powerboard.com, gives results in megapixels per second, and puts the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad in pole position, just above the Samsung Galaxy Note. The Asus Transformer Prime is a fair bit behind in third.

Of course, we always take benchmarks with a pinch of salt. We’d rather see the phones put head-to-head performing real-world tasks.

The Huawei Ascend D1 Quad has a 4.5in display (1280 x 720), quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 8MP camera with 1080p video capture, and runs Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Not too shabby at all.

I don't know how to say Huawei, so I'd always thought I'd look like a bit of an idiot if I was trying to explain to my friends what phone I'd got :p

Drop the Huawei bit then ;)
This rate of progress though I think we may all know how to say it soon.

62fps @1280x720 isn't half bad. My S2 (when overclocked) can reach about 60fps @480x800 (though the Mali 400 does have a 60fps cap on it). That's more FPS at a far higher resolution, good stuff :)!

The newer quad tablets look to be very promising but for the most part they are overkill. You can accomplish most everything with an older tablet. If you haven’t looked into the top tablets, or you are on the fence about a tablet take a look at these reviews. The Asus review convinced me to get my Transformer and I haven’t looked back since.

Its pronounced `who are we`

I've been trying to think of a way to remember how to say it, cheers mate :).

I can't tell if that's sarcastic or not. :p

Erm what reviews? Was there a link missing? Besides isn't this a phone?

From what I've read the older ones struggle with 1080p though.

No, really, that is how you pronounce it. Look at MWC videos from the Huawei stand if you want proof.

Does anyone know the price of the smartphone?

No, that is wrong. Pronounce it as "Hwa way" or "Wa way" (silent H).

I thought it was a Geordie company, as in Huawei the lads!!!

Is that so different (allowing for regional accents)?

Why are some posts coming on here with weird times.The site just told me that mobilly had posted on here and looking up the thread it says that post was 17hrs ago, but it wasn't there earlier. Happened a few times in last 3-4days

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 19, 2012 at 17:19

Because moderators have to allow posts from new users before the general public can see them, hence the late notifications.

Pondlife  Mar. 19, 2012 at 22:36

Thinking it's bit early for anyone to have pricing on that phone anyway?

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 19, 2012 at 22:45

Huawei said at MWC that the phone should cost around 80% of the price of its competitors (I'm guessing that means £400 as that's 20% less than £500).
