Default DX Replacement?

This is the type of phone I could get very interested in. Something like this would make a solid candidate to replace my DX. I'm hoping but have not idea if Verizon might eventually get to carry it.

It really does look like a sweet phone, hope it comes to Sprint. I would consider it a replacement for my Photon.

XL sounds like a great phone, based on specs. Really interesting features and hardware choices.

On paper by far the most tempting phone out there ATM.

I agree. It's the first phone I've found that I am seriously considering as my upgrade from my HTC Desire. I liked the Samsung Galaxy S2 but it had the same resolution screen as my Desire - just larger pixels!

The thing is, I don't want a huge huge phone, and that seems to be the way the top end phones are going, but I do want at least a 720p resolution screen. This phone seems to have a perfect balance between usable resolution and pocketable size.

If anyone else can comment on this, but apparently the only difference between this and the XL is the battery (2500mA for XL) aqnd with it a slightly bigger body?

I'm all for a bigger battery tbh,

From the Huawei official website:

Quote:
As part of the Ascend D series, Huawei also introduced the Ascend D quad XL and the Ascend D1 smartphones. The Ascend D quad XL comes with a 2500mAh battery which provides two to three days of normal usage. With the same specifications as the Ascend D quad, the Ascend D quad XL measures 10.9 mm slim.

Bigger battery is better!

I'm liking this more and more.
BUT it has already been dethroned by the snapdragon S4 chip lol:

Not sure on that. In the original articles it had already beaten the S4, but the new articles dont even mention that it had already been up against the S4. Only that it had beaten the Tegra 3.

I'm dubious. But even if it is true, i'm still looking at this device.
