Review Update Huawei Ascend P7 Smartphone

 

Deluxe 2.0. Huawei discontinues its elegant Ascend P6 and sends the Ascend P7 into the race for the favor of well-heeled buyers. The Chinese manufacturer demands approximately 450 Euros (~$601) for its updated premium model. The aluminum casing only...

Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

Huawei's Ascend P7 is a well-designed smartphone with a premium feel and mid-range specs. It takes after the iPhone's looks, but how well does its…

Big, 1080p 5-inch screen ; iPhone-level build quality ; 8MP selfie cam ; Good rear camera ; MicroSD card support

Battery won’t last you a day ; Slippery back slides right off tables ; Doesn’t feel like an Android phone ; No removable battery

Huawei has a real winner in the Ascend P7. It may not have the same ultra high-end specs as the LG G3, HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, or other flagship Android smartphones, but it offers strong performance and adds a nice build quality to the mix. The...

Huawei Ascend P7 ( black)

 

Huawei has a new flagship phone, set to do battle in the brutal smartphone arena against the Samsung Galaxy S5 , HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z2 . It's called the Ascend P7 and, if the name didn't give you a clue, it's the successor to last year's Ascend...

The Huawei Ascend P7's skinny, glass body looks quite classy, it has a decent camera and enough power for the everyday tasks, plus the latest version of Android on board.

Its slow processor, slightly cheap feel and often awkward Android skin means it doesn't really do anything to put itself above the competition.

Although the Ascend P7 is certainly skinny and not too expensive, its unimpressive power and sometimes awkward interface makes it an acceptable -- albeit uninspiring choice. If you can find the P7 on a subsidised contract at a good price then it's...

Huawei Ascend P7 review: Looking strong

 

The Huawei Ascend P7 is the sequel to the ultra-thin P6, the phone that proved, beyond any doubt, Huawei's ability to create visually appealing handsets. The new model builds on the original with a 5" 1080p screen, superior camera and chipset, plus a...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; penta-band 3G with HSPA; LTE Cat. 4 ; 5" 16M-color 1080p IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3, usable with gloves ; Android OS v4.4.2 KitKat with Emotion UI ; Quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A9, Mali-450 GPU; 2GB of...

Chipset benchmarks poorly ; Thicker than its predecessor ; Non-exchangeable battery ; Below average loudspeaker performance

It was probably the P6 that put Huawei on many people's map, but the Ascend P7 intends to make the brand a fixture in the mobile industry. Ours is of course a mostly Western perspective as Huawei is already extremely popular in its home market and...

Huawei Ascend P7 Review

 

The Ascend P7 is one of the thinnest and lightest Android smartphones with a 5” display, which doesn't preclude it from having a premium steel-and-glass design and a rather appealing specs sheet...

Thin and light premium design ; 8 MP wide-angle front camera ; Good call quality ; Strong and full loudspeaker

Midrange processor ; Sluggish browser

The Ascend P7 is a great-looking handset with a premium feel and a nice specs sheet. Its eye-catching chassis design also makes it one of the thinnest and lightest Android 5-inchers out there, and an ambassador of Huawei's engineering prowess. The...

Huawei Ascend P7 Review

 

With an SRP of Php 20,990 , the Huawei Ascend P7 is in for some competition. The above 20k price tag can be a tough sell because of the occasional lag during our usage. But if you are in for good design, LTE, and a good selfie camera, the P7 can be a...

Huawei is back with a solid, if frustrating, new Android smartphone Huawei may still be making inroads in western markets, but success elsewhere has seen the Chinese company rise to be the world's No. 3 smartphone maker. That's behind Samsung and...

The Ascend P7 has a lot to like about it. Well, on the hardware front it does, at least. It's nicely designed, beautifully made and is genuinely something you'd be pleased to own, look at and pick up every single day. Or at least it is until you turn...
