Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL and Ascend G600 to Hit the Philippine Market Before the New Year



Anyone who has a smartphone knows that, with all the gadget’s functions we use, we can’t afford to have its battery drain at the most inopportune times. My husband’s current phone is like that and I’ve often lamented about not being able to reach him through calls or texts when he’s out of the house because his six-month-old phone would sometimes suddenly die without warning.

Thus, it was welcome news to learn that Huawei is introducing two new phones to the Philippine market. The Ascend D1 quad XL and Ascend G600 has more functionality and longer battery life for users who expect more from their powerful device, at affordable prices.


“Huawei Device strives to combine what we know people want in a smartphone with our experience in delivering against those expectations. As part of our Ascend series of best-in-class smartphones, the Ascend D1 quad XL and Ascend G600 allow consumers to experience speed, long battery life and exceptional mobile entertainment in a high-quality, lightweight package,” describes Johnson Ma, country manager at Huawei Device Philippines.  “In addition, our more than two decades of experience has allowed us to optimize the Ascend smartphones’ network search algorithm and its base station auto-search technology, improving the speed of the phone’s signal detection to further extend battery life,”


Joining the growing members of the Ascend family -- Huawei’s strong portfolio of best-in-class smartphones – Ascend D1 quad XL and Ascend G600 are available at PhP18,990 and 13,990 suggested retail prices, respectively.

During the Huawei mall display press event held at SM North EDSA Annex’s Cyberzone, attendees were given a chance to win one of the two new phones and I was really happy to hear my hubby’s name called out as one of the winners. (You can read his blog post here). He really needs a new phone and I’m glad he’ll be using something with great functions and longer battery life.


Here are more details on each phone’s specs:
