The Huawei Ascend D Quad XL was announced as the “world’s fastest smartphone” and there were no items to dispute that, at least until today, when appeared the first benchmark in the fight between processors. Apparently, the Ascend D Quad XL has lost his challenge against Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, the chip that overthrows the throne even before it comes on the market.
Previously, the chip had beaten the Asus K3V2 Prime Transformer with quad-core Tegra 3 tests in Taiji Basemark ES 2.0, but then came the Snapdragon S4 beat the quad-core chips, falling prey to the powerful chip 28 nm competitor.
It is interesting to note that the device is equipped with the chip S4 is not exactly a mainstream phone: it is the Pantech SKY Vega LTE. The processor S4, in each case, will feed into many other devices, including the American version of the HTC One X.
