Two years ago we only had single-core handsets, shows like MWC 2011 brought us the first dual-core devices last year, and in 2012 the key word is quad-core…
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Huawei Ascend D quad XL 2500 maH battery looks pretty impressive. I wonder if it really lasts that long.

Until these beasts arrive, it's the Galaxy Note that will run the show.

One X is not IPS LCD it is just S-LCD 2 and huawei is IPS+ LCD

I don't know why are you giving me thumbs down when this is a fact...LG uses AH-IPS LCD, htc uses S-LCD 2 and huawie uses IPS+...i don't know the diference between AH-IPS and IPS+ but i know the diference between S-LCD an IPS-LCD and so should you before you thumb me down

Next year Octo Core. Next to next year probably hyperthreading.

i would go with the LG, the battery is somewhere in the middle, and the thinnest among others..they are trying to maintain both

damn. if this is sensational imagine how the samsung galaxy s3 and sony's equivalent phone will be!

Sony already announced their new lineup (dual core mostly)

I'm going lg. The optimus UI looks much nicer than sense 4 IMO. A nice size batter, nice design. I'll take tegra 3 over huawei s chip too. I always prefer lgs displays. I hope it gets gorilla glass 2. That 4x will be my next phone if the dev community is strong.
31. redmd (Posts: 960; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
My thoughts exactly. Somehow most of the readers here at PA hate LG.
34. Guest_star (Posts: 231; Member since: 30 Dec 2011)
haters gona hate, LG's new UI is beautifull and the phone it self if preaty nice so it's LG for me too
35. Guest_star (Posts: 231; Member since: 30 Dec 2011)
btw LG had a few problems namely they did not update softare fast enough but i think that they have learned their lesson and that they will update it faster from now on

I wonder if we will see Huawei on the shelves in the states. It seems to have the freedom of android and the well build chassie of an iphone.

correction Huawei Ascend D quad has 1.2 ghz clocked speed quad-core processor not 1.5ghz

These 3 phones (4 if you count the big battery version of Huawei) aren't very impressive. And by that I mean: they don't make me wish I wasn't on a contract so I could run and spend my money on them.
The Huawei is rather handsome though, but from the looks of it, it lacks on screen buttons. (see enlarged picture in a dif article)
The LG is ugly, as it has sharp squarish circles.
HTC phones are usually aesthetically pleasing (see HTC Amaze), this one slightly more so; also, it looks like this "one" lacks on screen buttons as well.
Specs wise, there is not a huge difference among them besides for the batter life.
If I bought one, it would be the HUAWEI D. Slimmer than the HTC, smaller dimmensions as well, which would probably mean it feels better in the hand. 4.5 inches is plenty of screen.

Squarish CIRCLES?? LOLOLOL....you mean edges?
22. thephoneguy92 (Posts: 191; Member since: 29 Dec 2011)
Clearly you use your phone for texting and facebook then if you don't consider a quad core phone a big change.
36. Crave (Posts: 12; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
Clearly you don't understand what you read. Quad core is a nice change, but for quad core phones, none of these stand out. I can already tell they're not going to be a big deal in the quad core game. And stop making assumptions, I use my phone (Atrix 2) for extensive internet browsing, checking and writing emails, watching videos, hdtv mirroring, as well as texting and G+/ facebook. You're not cool.

while i like htc one x very much...am staying away from it 'coz i've not the best experience w/ htc devices (htc hero and desire hd)...battery life's not the best and sense ui seems to slow-down android performance (laggy, stuttery, and quite frequent force-closes etc). honestly, i gave up on android after a number of devices incl. sony ericsson xperia arc in addition to those htc, but recently i pushed myself & picked up samsung sgs2, hands down its as stable and as smooth as ios...(i happen to have an iphone 4 and lumia800, so am speaking from experience)...and looks like am switching back fully to android ditching my iphone4 & lumia800 for sgs3...

I think LG is going to strike. Almost good.
16. groupsacc (Posts: 232; Member since: 28 Feb 2012)
where the heck is Samsung??? seems like they are missing this big party. whether this is a good thing or bad thing, only time would tell.
23. thephoneguy92 (Posts: 191; Member since: 29 Dec 2011)
They are having their own event. *Good*
25. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1676; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)
It seems like Ssmsung and Apple are doing the identical things. Design wise, Event holding, and everything else... But would like to see the rumor SGS III thought. The leak (true or not) looks pretty impressive :)
26. thephoneguy92 (Posts: 191; Member since: 29 Dec 2011)
Make no mistake, the SGS III will be the phone everyone expects it to be, Samsung will make sure of that. And it's not often I expect much from manufacturers over such a hyped product, but I am quite confident that Samsung will deliver on this, just like the S II

I think you need a new keyboard, it seems like your caps lock and space key has broken, and soon your period button will be just as dysfunctional.

I'm most worried about the One X / XL not having a removable battery... I'm on ATT and the S4 should be nice with the integrated LTE on the SoC, hopefully not as big of a drain as previous LTE phones... waiting for real-world testing!
29. Saamic (Posts: 119; Member since: 20 Feb 2012)
LTE, quad-core, good camera, large battery, and pretty thin.... Dam I wish that Huawei
Ascend D quad XL was CDMA =(
38. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6877; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
It looks like no QUAD CORE PHONES coming to any U.S. Carrier AT&T and no T-Mobile isn't getting a quad core so what's the point if no carrier isn't going to have one except Europe and the rest of the world
39. ENIGMA (Posts: 81; Member since: 17 Feb 2012)

BTW Ascend D Quad & XL both have 1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage expandable to 32GB, and actually support 21.1mbits/s not LTE.
Ascend D quad weighs 130g
Ascend D quad XL weighs 180g
