Comparison - Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Huawei Ascend D Quad

June 8, 2012
By Jonathan Cheah


08 June 2012 - The Samsung Galaxy S3 or Samsung Galaxy SIII was announced last month. The Huawei Ascend D Quad was announced even earlier in February 2012 but has yet to make it to market.


The Samsung Galaxy S3 is obviously the successor to the very successful Galaxy S2, and the Huawei Ascend D Quad boasts of being the world’s fastest phone.


Physically, the S3 and the Huawei Ascend D Quad are a lot alike. They are about the same size, weigh almost the same (133 vs 130g) and have 720 x 1280 pixel screens. The Samsung has a Super AMOLED screen and the Huawei has a Super IPS+LCD screen.


The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a giant 4.8-inch screen, with 720 x 1280 pixels. It also has better resolution because the Note has such a large screen.


It has a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor inside, which should be faster than the dual-core 1.2 GHz processor in the Nexus. Both devices have the same 1GB RAM.


It is also one of the first phones to start accepting 64GB microSD cards, so there is a lot of storage inside this device. There is more battery (2100 vs 1800 mAh) on the S3 than on the D Quad.


The Huawei Ascend D Quad has a 4.50-inch screen with 720 x 1280 pixels.


The Ascend D Quad uses Huawei’s own K3V2 processor, which can be clocked at 1.2 or 1.5 GHz. Apparently, it has four A9 cores and 16 GPU cores, which lead the manufacturer to claim that it is the world’s fastest phone.


Curiously, Huawei’s initial Q3 market date is now Q4, according to some of our sources. This raises the question of whether the Ascend D Quad will still be relevant when it goes on sale. We have seen that branding is a big part of how mobile devices sell, and Samsung has a bigger brand presence than Huawei does right now.


With four times the amount of storage, I find it hard to see the Huawei posing any threat to a Galaxy S3 that is in such high demand that the local telco’s are saying things like ‘highest demand ever’. Maybe I would consider it at three quarters of the price, but what use would a super phone be without enough storage?
