Description

Huawei Ascend D quad is powered by Huawei's own ARM-based chipsets, called K3V2 with four cores humming along at 1.5GHz and a 4.5" HD LCD display with 720x1280 pixels of resolution and "the industry's most powerful 32-bit true color graphic processor". Not only that, but it seems to be the most compact 4.5-incher with 8.9mm slimness, and Huawei has also addressed the complaints about its camera sensors, including an 8MP BSI one here, along with the 1.3MP front-facer.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
