Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL goes on sale for Php7,990

Originally sold for Php18,990, the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL (U9510E) can now be had for Php7,990 as part of Huawei Philippines’ early Christmas promo.

With its 4.5-inch IPS HD display, quad-core processor and sizeable 2600mAh battery, the Ascend D1 Quad XL is easily one of the top choices in this price category.


The only major drawback that I can think of, and that could probably change your mind in getting this, is that it’s still stuck on an ageing version of Android (4.0.4). Nevertheless, we still think that Ascend D1 Quad XL is a viable option if you’re in the market for an affordable quad-core smartphone from a reputable brand.

Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL (U9510E) specs:
4.5? IPS+ LCD display @ 720×1280 pixels @ 326ppi
Huawei K3V2 1.4GHz quad-core
Hisilicon Immersion.16 GPU
8GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD card
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0 HS
HSPA+ 21Mbps
8MP autofocus camera w/ dual LED flash
1080p video recording
1.3MP front-facing camera @ 720p
GPS w/ aGPS support, GLONASS
Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus
2,600mAh Li-Ion battery

    Doesn’t Huawei upgrade their phones firmware? It’s a good unit. But why is it still on ICS? A JB fw of 4.1 should already be running.

      The huuuge price drop is a dead giveaway = wala ng update ‘to boy.Wala din akong custom ROM na mahanap sa web, I was planning of getting one for myself, yun lang, hehe, napa-isip isip tuloy… In fairness naman sa Playstore, supported pa rin ang pre-ICS sa halos lahat ng apps, so makasisiguro ka na tatagal pa ‘to

    • d1 quad xl user says:

      Yung P1 na nag sale alam ko may update na. Saka itong D1 may JB sa China so sana magkaroon ng official intl release. Natatagalan ata dahil may kasamang Emotion UI.

      Btw oo nga, ayusin nila tong comments section. Mga wala kasing magawa sa buhay yung ibang mga tao.

    Something’s fishy here

    .. there’s a caveat….right? this is a dead-end phone, All update plans abandoned lol

    having said that, sulit pa rin, that is…if you’re not into gaming and heavy app user, pwede to kay Tatay at Nanay

    @yuga your capabilityt to moderate comments is useless if you allow spam comments as well as flood comments.

    Dapat isara na lang itong comment section, kasi wala namang nagmomoderate. Kung hindi troll posts, spam messages lang nababasa ko. Mabibilang lang sa daliri ang mga worthwhile na comments.

    kamusta kaya yung cpu at gpu combination nito?

  7. Ex-Alodian Knight says:

    Well, XDA does have a forced JB update. 4.1

  8. mac says:

    for those who don’t mind having just ics intalled, and isn’t comfortable flashing custom roms, this is a very good choice. from the design, the hardware to the display. If I am not mistaken. I believe it scored 15,500 plus on the Antutu.

    A nice back up phone.

  10. Vern says:

    I bought the phone when I read this post. The specs and performance is ok even if it’s on ICS. But it would definitely have a performance boost if Huawei will push JB on this handset.

    @anonymous,I agree my tut sa xda developers jb rom stock and custom….sana may pera pambili….:-)

  12. Vern says:

    I’ll just wait for any official release if ever sayang naman yung warranty.

  13. Vern says:

    There’s even an unofficial MIUI v5 for this model and it’s already on 4.2. Check it out here: http://en.miui.com/thread-2651-1-1.html

    until when ang sale nito?

  15. Anonymous says:

    Just bought one. Ok naman siya, sulit talaga sa price na 8k. Naupdate ko na din sa Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and ok naman yung ROM, so far wala pko naencounter na problems. Ang hindi ko lang gusto eh yung UI ng Menu, para siyang UI ng LG, boring tignan. Pero in terms of performance naman ayos na ayos siya. Package also came with 1 year service and parts warranty kaya no worries na din khit pano.

    Bought this unit yesterday in MemoExpress SM Pampanga for 7990petot only and all i can say is this phone rocks regardless of its very low price! Daig pa niya halos lahat ng ng 12-15k priced midranged phones XSP lang yata makakapantay. It scored 16000+++ for 10x in different intervals in Antutu Out-of-box. Say, What!? Kapalit ng binenta kong note3 na monstrous sa laki hirap ibulsa. :)

    Was able to update to JB ROM B608. This unit is really worth it!
