Reviews summary

Based on 4 reviews

When Google released the first version of its mobile operating system back in 2007, a lot of people said it was going to be huge. Fast forward five years, and Android handsets truly are huge—literally. More and more models are being released with top-notch features and monstrous displays. One such model is the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL, which is one of the biggest and most impressive Android phones ever released to date.

The Ascend D Quad XL’s claim to fame is its use of a 4.5-inch HD touchscreen display and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor made by Huawei itself. It is fast and powerful and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich by default. It also boasts a number of high-end hardware features like an 8MP main camera with dual-LED flash, support for HSDPA data, and a 2,500mAh standard battery.

While it’s certainly impressive, it also comes with a few noticeable flaws. It has only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, plus it doesn’t ship with the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It also lacks both NFC and 4G LTE, which could be a deal breaker especially for those who like to stay on the bleeding edge of mobile technology.

All in all, it’s a well-equipped phone with a few drawbacks that hardly take anything away from the positive overall experience. It just might end up being your best phone ever if you’re inclined to give Huawei a try.

Aside from snappy processing hardware, the phone also provides pleasurable multimedia playback

from Android Authority

The Huawei Ascend D quad XL U9510E is a good choice if you’re looking for a quad-core smartphone. It is powered by the powerful Huawei K3V2 processor, which is more than enough for multitasking, multimedia playback, and HD gaming.

I fell in love with what the Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus sound enhancement can do to my music and movies. Watching videos is also very pleasing with the phone’s very crisp and realistic display. Though thicker and heavier than most other high-end smartphones, the Ascend D quad XL surely packs some extra juice to power the phone for many hours of heavy usage. A... Full review


It has power, class, and a flexible operating system

from Phandroid

Let’s go back to the refrain: there is no turning back for Huawei. While it might be a stretch to imagine the Chinese company gaining much ground on Samsung and other manufacturers outside of their home country, the Ascend D Quad XL deserves to be considered among oft-referenced devices such as the Galaxy S3. It’s easy to snicker at the not-so-fortuitous name, which for English speakers has become the butt of many a joke, but there is nothing funny about what Huawei has created here. It has power, class, and a flexible operating system, and that’s just about all we could ever hope for... Full review


A great smartphone that’s likely to be overlooked

from BGR
While the Ascend D Quad XL has its flaws, it is no doubt Huawei’s best smartphone to date. The device is quick and its brilliant display makes it more than capable of holding its own with the current Android players. It is unclear if the handset will ever receive an update to Jelly Bean or even a later version of Android in the future, however, and that is a reason for concern... Full review

Impressive display, device feels great, and performs tasks excellently

from Android Community
In the end the Ascend D1 Quad XL is Huawei’s finest smartphone to date. On paper and in the hands as far as we’re concerned. The device feels great, performs excellent for daily tasks like gaming and browsing, and the display is truly quite impressive being an HD IPS screen with vivid colors and crisp text. Add in a powerful quad-core processor and you have everything we’d like in a modern top-tier smartphone... Full review
