The month of September has already witnessed some of the best smartphones and we are just 2 days away from the official announcement of iPhone 6. In the midst of multiple smartphones launch, Huawei has already announced its 6 inch phablet Huawei Ascend Mate7.
This new phablet is expected to do well in the market because it has the looks and the best possible hardware on board. However, the only thing which might cause hurdle in the sales of Huawei Ascend Mate7 is its higher price tag. So, Huawei has to price it wisely otherwise they might not be able to achieve the desired goals. Anyway, today we are here with our detailed Huawei Ascend Mate7 review.
Huawei Ascend Mate7 Review:
The basic purpose of a smartphone is to make calls but these days most of the online websites neglect covering connectivity and voice quality in their reviews. But here at SmartphoneTechie it is our priority to check out the voice quality and include it in our review.
Huawei Ascend Mate7 has both 3G and LTE connectivity. It comes with the latest Bluetooth 4.0. NFC and offers USB on the go feature. In our call quality review this device performed very well. Though call quality was not as good as we expected but still it was better than many other latest smartphones. We would rate it 3.5 out of 5 in our call quality test.
In our Huawei Ascend Mate7 review we tested out the fingerprint scanner. Company advertised the new technology they have used in the smartphone and we were impressed with the responsiveness of the sensor. It worked great. You just have to record your finger print once and then you only have to place it and it will work flawlessly.
Display and Build Quality:
In our Huawei Ascend Mate7 Review we were greatly impressed with the looks and design of this beautiful smartphone. It is just the perfect premium device one can expect. Since, it has a 6 inch display therefore it might not be easy to use and if you expect it to use it with one hand then forget about it.
It has 6 inch IPS LCD display with 1080 x 1920 screen resolution. The display is covered with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to offer the desired protection. The overall display looks pretty good. We played different videos in our Huawei Ascend Mate7 review to test out the quality of its display and we were left spell bound with beautiful and stunning display quality. Everything look so colorful and lively on a beautiful 6 inch display.
This is the most important section of our Huawei Ascend Mate7 Review. Ascend Mate7 has Huawei made HiSilicon Kirin 925 chipset with quadcore processor clocked at 1.8GHz with Cortex A15, Mali-T628 GPU and 2GB RAM. The good thing is that 32GB version comes with 3GB RAM. On paper these specifications look amazing but unfortunately it does not perform as good as we expect. HiSilicon Kirin 925 is good but we already have better chipsets like Snapdragon 805out in the market therefore Ascend Mate7 failed to impress in the benchmark results.
Huawei Ascend Mate7 comes with 13MP camera but unfortunately it disappoints to impress. As we have mentioned in past that it is no more the game of pixels. There are many other factors which govern the over quality of image. The images we took with this device were not great, exposure was off. However, we are hopeful that the company will fix the over exposure issues in the software updates. Apart from this it has a decent camera which gives adequate details.
It has 5MP front facing camera capable of recording 720p videos. The front camera looks good to take selfies and it will get better with updates as we believe the amount of noise can be reduced.
We were impressed with this beautiful device in our Huawei Ascend Mate7 Review. It has innovative design and it will certainly impress many people looking for a device with premium looks and design. However, camera is the only let down but we expect that it will get better with few software updates.
