Huawei Ascend D2 has 5-inch Super Retina fast response IPS panel display which boost a resolution of 1920 x 1080, so its perfect for full HD 1080 video playback because it has 443 PPI pixel density , according to Huawei the Ascend D2 provides excellent colour accuracy and clarity. In addition, it is protected by the anti-scratch Corning Gorilla glass, and the dust and water resistant IPX 5/4, so at least there is one device which can compete with Sony Xperia Z. Obviously these features tell us that Ascend D2 is tough enough to withstand everyday use when we look at screen specs.
Ascend D2 is powered by an Android 4.1 with a 1.5 GHz Quad Core Hi Silicon K3V2 + Balong V7R1 and supports 2gb of Ram to make life easier for users in multitasking. We have not did a benchmark for this Chipset but, soon we are going to do so, when we will get our hand on it, to see how its performing against Exynos, Snapdragon and Nvdia new chipsets.
The Huawei Ascend D2 has a stylish and elegant design with an aluminium body and metal frame, its curved design fits comfortably in the hand. However, there is a lack of micro sd card slot in it which gives Sony Xperia Z upper hand over D2.
D2 measures 140 x 71 x 9.4 mm and weighs 170 grams. These measurements tell us that its little bit heaviear and thicker than other devices in the market but that can be avoided due to the fact it has 13mega pixel camera in it with big screen.
It has 32gb of internal memory in it but unfortunately there is no micro sd card slot so its restricted to 32gb.
On the front D2 has 1.3 megapixel camera capable of taking 720p videos @30fps, on the back we have 13MP camera that supports a photo upto 4032 x 3224 pixels with autofocus and LED flash
It has 3000 mAh battery which gives 144 hours standby time.
It has WLAN with Wi-Fi hotspot option, Wifi- Direct, DLNA, AGPS and Bluetooth but there is a lack of NFC and LTE in it.
By looking at the specs and features of this device, one can easily judge that this is a good phone but there are lot more phones coming out this year like S4, Note 3, Lg Optmius Pro and Sony Xperia Z that will give it a hard time to survive as there is a lack of LTE, NFC and Micro Sd slot in it. This is expected to release in end of January in the world.
