Huawei Mate 7 Review

 

Marketed as a great phone with an excellent battery life, at an affordable price (a recurring Huawei theme), the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 ($600) is one of the most desirable phone in China right now, a...

With the Mate 7, Huawei goes further away from playing the pure “value” game and enters high-end territory. A $600 price puts it less than $100 from the Galaxy Note 4, $150 below the iPhone 6+ and $50 above the Galaxy S5 – this is not always an obvious...

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Phablet Review

 

Apple challenger. Buyers looking for an alternative that has roughly the same size as the iPhone 6 and (only) want to spend about 500 Euros (~$635) should certainly look closer at the new, elegant, and swift Huawei phablet. Are its screen, casing,...

Light, Elegant, solid aluminum casing, Slim bezel, Bright, viewing angle screen with outstanding color reproduction, Lightning fast CPU performance, Very good GPU performance, Stylish, useful UI, Phone manager app, Very good primary camera for a...

Cannot be used with one hand, one-hand feature defect, Assessed storage throughput low, Browsing could be smoother, Lack of an app drawer needs getting used to, Mono speaker too inferior for multimedia

In total, Huawei's iPhone rival made a very good impression in the test. Apart from the graphics unit that we "only" see in the upper range, it provides premium-range performance. The minor weaknesses that we could measure are more theoretical....

Huawei Ascend Mate7 review: Stargazer

 

The Huawei Ascend Mate7 is the company's first phablet ready for primetime, with two credible midrangers in the Mate series giving Huawei the confidence to stand up to rival flagships. Never mind the digit in the title, the Mate7 is actually a 6"...

Cat. 6 LTE connectivity, 300Mbps rated download speed ; Optional dual-SIM model for certain markets and you choose to use the second slot as either a SIM or a microSD slot) ; 6" 16M-color 1080p IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3,...

Non-exchangeable battery ; No 4K or 1080p video recording @ 60fps ; Will compete against QHD screens in this price range

The Ascend Mate7 is probably a logical next step for Huawei after a couple of solid midrange attempts in the same genre. The Mate7 will mix with the big boys in a niche, which has only been getting busier and has a prominent newcomer this season.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review:

 

With Apple's launch of its 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus , it's clear that big phones are here to stay. This isn't news to Huawei, however, which already has a range of palm-stretching mobiles to tempt you with.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 packs a huge battery that keeps going for ages, its screen is bright and bold, the camera is pretty decent and the fingerprint sensor actually works.

It's running on an old version of Android, Huawei's software tweaks make it clunky to use and there's loads of bloatware installed as standard.

Although it's let down by its awkward software, the excellent battery life and big, bright screen help make the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 a decent choice for those of you looking for movies and games on the go.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 ( gold)

 

The latest addition is called the Mate 7. It's not the seventh generation, nor does it have a 7-inch display, so I'm baffled as to the name. It actually has a 6-inch display with a full HD resolution, an octa-core processor, 4G LTE, a fingerprint...

Huawei Ascend Mate7 Review

 

It feels like the Ascend Mate7 is a device that was designed and created with the task of making a statement: Huawei may not be as recognizable as other brands, but the company is not about to let that stand in the way of making great products. There's...

Metal and sturdy construction ; Industry-leading fingerprint scanner on the back ; Attractive, lag-free interface ; Record-setting battery life ; Support for a large number of LTE bands

The camera could use some work – shots often suffer from improper exposition and color abnormalities ; Minimum brightness is too high for comfortable viewing in dark environments ; Lacks 4K UHD video recording

The Huawei Ascend Mate7 isn't for everybody. Certainly, the 6-inch screen will put off a sizable portion of potential customers, as that's obviously way into phablet territory. On the bright side, however, the Mate7 is a really compact device relative...

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review: beautifully balanced

 

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 has a massive shell and an even bigger heart.

: If you’re looking for a phone that’s around 6.0-inches, I can’t recommend anything other than the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. It’s a glorious piece of design with a beautiful screen and a great camera, it’s just a pity about the UI, strange performance...

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 phablet - Huawei goes big and premium

 

With the 6-inch Ascend Mate 7, Huawei officially enters the premium phablet market which is dominated by the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The Chinese company also stepped up its game with the in-house HiSilicon Kirin 925...

Good design and build quality ; Nice UI and features ; Solid battery life ; 4G LTE CAT 6 support ; Best fingerprint sensor implementation on an Android phone

Camera performance could be better ; Phone may be too big for some ; Slippery back

With the Ascend Mate 7, Huawei has finally positioned itself as a premium handset maker. It's certainly a valiant effort, although there is certainly room for improvement in some areas.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review: a winning combo at a fair price

 

Huawei's largest smartphone yet packs one of its biggest screens and a massive battery – but can its software keep up?

Top-notch build quality ; Responsive and smart fingerprint scanner ; Excellent battery life ; Strong call performance

Slow software in some cases ; Big screen not taken advantage of with software ; Lack of support for wireless charging or WiFi ac ; Unimpressive speaker

Sitting around the same cost as other large form factor devices like the Galaxy Note 3, it’s hard to say whether or not this device is worth buying right now. It’s certainly better-built than the Note 3, though software is subjective and the...

With a 2.9mm bezel, the 6″ looks smaller in size with it's 7.9 mm slim body. The 6″ Full HD screen has a 368ppi and 16M colours which delivers vibrant pictures and videos.
