Huawei Ascend D quad XL full review [video] (from AndroidAuthority)

Smartphones are fast becoming more powerful companions as more quad-core phones are introduced to the market. Huawei doesn’t want to be left out in that space and created the Huawei Ascend D quad XL U9510E.

This new phone from Huawei features its homegrown Huawei K3V2 quad-core processor. Aside from snappy processing hardware, the phone also provides pleasurable multimedia playback. In terms of thickness and weight, though, the phone may not be the sleekest, but it does have an enviable battery bank rated at 2,600 mAh.

Can this phone stand up to the other quad-core titans in the Android smartphones market? Let’s look more closely at Huawei’s newest gadget. You can also jump straightaway to our video review.

Physical Build and Design

Dimensions and Weight

  • Length — 129 mm (5.08 in)
  • Width — 64 mm (2.52 in)
  • Thickness — 10.9 mm (0.43 in)
  • Weight — 150 grams (5.29 oz)

The Huawei Ascend D quad XL’s overall size is okay. It’s not too small or too big for average hands, which I have.

In terms of thickness, though, the phone is a bit thicker and weighs heavier than some recent high-end smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.

I actually like the phone’s overall dimensions because it’s easy to hold and I can easily feel the phone in my hand. But, if you’re used to holding small, light, and thin phones, you may feel a little awkward holding the Ascend D quad XL.
