Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

With the Ascend P7, Huawei has finally made a really great smartphone that has the potential to woo iPhone users away from their 4-inch screens – if only it can make it out of Asia.

Huawei has a real winner in the Ascend P7. It may not have the same ultra high-end specs as the , , , or other flagship Android smartphones, but it offers strong performance and adds a nice build quality to the mix. The P7 also happens to be a couple...

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

 

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...

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 is hungry. With 2013's Ascend P6, the Chinese firm showed us it wasn't afraid to build a flagship and take on the big names; with the new Ascend P7, here on the SlashGear test bench, Huawei wants to prove that not only can it sit at the table...

For a long time, Huawei has been one of those “other” phone manufacturers. Never mind its rapidly growing global market share among smartphones, or its increasingly impressive feature sets; breaking into mind-share has proved far more difficult than...

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 Ascend P7 review: mid-range supremacy

 

I'm obsessed with the singularity, a moment in time where the known universe suddenly vanishes as it coalescences into one star-filled mass of pure nothing

If you ignore the shiny, slippery rear and clunky UI (which is easily replaced), the P7 becomes my new favourite Android device. It’s priced well, packed with a juicy level of power and has easily the best screen of any smartphone. Huawei’s P6 was...

Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

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...
