When you are comparing phone plans, you might want to bear energy efficiency in mind. Many smartphone manufacturers are beginning to focus on power consumption, and you may wish to consider its battery life and energy use when you make your handset choice.

Huawei's newest smartphone - the Ascend D quad - is powered by a quad-core chip processor, features the Android 4.0 operating system and uses the best graphics and structural engineering technology to offer a classically lightweight and user-friendly device.

It also offers users a specialised power management system which can increase its energy efficiency by up to 30 per cent. Power consumption is adjusted to usage needs in order to provide a longer battery life compared to the industry standard.

The Ascend D quad has been dubbed 'the world's fastest smartphone', and follows Huawei's previous smartphone release, the Ascend P1 S, which set a world record for being the slimmest smartphone available. 

Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei Device, said: "We've listened to people's top demands from smartphones: speed, long-battery life, high quality visual and audio capabilities, and a compact, lightweight handset. The Huawei Ascend D quad exceeds these expectations."

Huawei's newest addition to its smartphone canon will be available in Australia from April this year.
