The Huawei Ascend D Quad casually sailed into Mobile World Congress and leads Huawei's smart phone fleet as its undisputed flagship. It's packing a powerful quad-core chip, a 720p screen and the latest version of Android.
If it hopes to have a long-term berth in everyone's pockets, it's going to have to deliver in the camera stakes too. To see just what the 8-megapixel snapper can do, I took it for a spin around Barcelona and compared the results to my very own iPhone 4.
I only had a brief hands-on time with the D Quad and I didn't have an iPhone 4S to hand with its improved camera, so the results of the test aren't a scientific conclusion, but it gives a good general idea of how well the new phone performs in the snapping stakes.
The quality settings on both handsets were set to their maximum and all other settings were left on automatic. On the left you'll see the image from the iPhone 4; on the right, the D Quad. Click the images to see the full size versions.
