Huawei Ascend D2: In-Depth Look (Video)

We got a chance to take a quick look at Huawei’s Ascend D2 1080p Android around the time of the company’s CES press event last night. If you were hoping to get an even closer, more thorough look at the D2, we swung by Huawei’s booth and picked one up again in order to offer you a few new thoughts on the smartphone.

Like on the Ascend Mate, Huawei’s custom software lets you hide the on-screen Android soft buttons with a tap, and on a smaller screen like this, that feature’s going to be all the more valuable.

Unfortunately, despite the phone’s quad-core SoC, it just really doesn’t seem to be performing on the level we’d hope it to. Maybe Huawei has some new software coming to help that out a little, but we’d want to take a careful look at performance before paying-out for an Ascend D2.
