HUAWEI Smartphones Now in the Philippines

HUAWEI. Honestly, it took me a while to just get the correct pronunciation of this not-so-quite-new player in the never ending “battle of the smartphones” industry. Little did many people know, HUAWEI is one of the two biggest telecommunication companies in China today aside from ZTE. For years, Huawei is one of the leading toll-manufacturers of smartphones and tablets being used by other brands like the PLDT tablet. With the wide acceptance of many information and telecommunication brands in the world, the company finally ventured out to come up with new communication devices under its own brand name.

Last December 16, 2012, HUAWEI unveiled two of its latest top-of-the-line smartphones namely, Ascend G600 and Ascend D1 Quad XL. Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, these two, along with the rest of the smartphone lines are backed up by US software technology. The hardware casing design is a product of former BMW design experts in the UK.

With all the powerful l smartphones available in the market today, one prevailing limitation that’s common among these phones is battery life. As a common rule, the more powerful the phone is, the faster it would wear out. Not so for the Ascend D1 Quad XL because one of its notable features is the longer battery life. Huawei Tech people were able to improve the battery life span up to 30%, much longer than its leading competitors. It carries an ultra-powerful 2600mAh battery that can deliver an impressive 15 hours talk time and stand-by time of 500 hours.

This turbo-charged smartphone is powered by Huawei’s HiSilicon HI3620 quad-core 1.4GHz processor. It provides a cinematic experience with it cutting edge IPS display in a high-definition 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 Toshiba screen, giving you crystal clear images even under direct sunlight. Matching its high quality visual clarity is the Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus sound enhancement that offers a superb audio experience. The Ascend G600, on the other hand, also carries Android 4.0 ICM. The camera is 8-megapixels with auto focus, double focus, and surround system speakers. Being a one notch lower model from Ascend D1 Quad XL, this phone still packs more powerful features that are much better than other brands in the value-for-money class.

The official launch was held at the activity center at SM Annex North Edsa. It was graced by tech and lifestyle bloggers as well as several members of the traditional media. Each of us was able to scrutinize the details of the Huawei phones and they do give a serious kick and can compete side by side with the other more popular smartphones around. 

At the near end of the program, the management of Huawei was generous enough to raffle off great prizes including a unit each of Huawei Ascend G600 and the top of the line, Ascend D1 Quad XL. In raffles like these I normally don’t keep my hopes too high because, for some weird reason, luck always seems to be against my favor and I would be happy if I just go home with one of the minor prizes. However, my friends’ names were called one by one and I still didn’t hear mine. Then suddenly, as I was thinking that all luck has ran out, my name was called and I bagged the grand prize – the Ascend D1 Quad XL! Wow, my first quad-core phone!  

 Truly, this made the Christmas season a very Merry one for me. Thank you Huawei! 
