Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

With the Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL, the team brings us what at first appears to be a powerhouse of a smartphone with a giant battery to boot. As it turns out, the processor doesn't take down its competitors in Samsung, Qualcomm, or NVIDIA, but certainly does nice enough to keep up with them in many ways. You're certainly able to play high-powered games, videos play smoothly even at their highest of definitions, and the whole smartphone is easily Huawei's most powerful to date. The lack of uniqueness in the build of the device, on the other hand, should remind you of Huawei's competitors' devices from this past year - it's put us on guard right out of the box, but ends up proving to be far less important than the end product, which is great.

Huawei Ascend D Quad and D Quad XL get official with custom quad-core processor

Chinese manufacturer Huawei intends to stake its high-end claim at Mobile World Congress 2012, and they're off to a good start. The previously indicated Diamond line of devices will begin with the Ascend D Quad, featuring Huawei's very own ARM-based quad-core processor, the K3V2. We had expected them to rely on Nvidia's Tegra 3 architecture, but it looks like they're keeping it in the family. The company claims that this bit of 1.5ghz silicon helps it perform 49% faster than conventional devices (making it the "world's fastest smartphone") while improving battery life. Other major specifications include a 4.5-inch 720p touchscreen and Ice Cream Sandwich.

Huawei Honor (U8860) Review

Huawei Honor (U8860) Review

When Huawei sent over their new and soon to be released smartphone set to debut in Asia in Q4 called the Huawei Honor (U8860) also known as the Glory, I was expecting another run of the mill Android smartphone for the budget crowd like their previous devices. I couldn't have been more wrong. The Honor offers a 1.4 GHz processor, Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread, an HDR capable 8 megapixel camera and a huge battery. I quickly realized this was a much better phone than I'd thought. Now that I've had some time with it here's my thoughts.

HP leaks tipped 3 new Android tablets

HP leaks tipped 3 new Android tablets

HP isn't exactly the go-to-guy when it comes to Android tablets, but that hasn't fazed it from putting out innumerable mobile devices, some of which have somewhat similar and therefore confusing names. The PC maker is now believed to actually have three, yes three, tablets in the making, bearing a mixed array of hardware specs and, of course, names that vary only ever so slightly from one another and other older products.
