It has the latest single-touch technology so you can unlock the phone faster than devices that use a slower sweeping recognition, which means no more fiddly finger dragging or multiple taps. Fingerprints open either normal or guest mode: your fingerprint allows you into your private folders and applications while your friend&#39;s fingerprint only lets them see what you want them to see.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="600" height="450" title="Promoted: 7 common smartphone problems the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 solves instantly" alt="Promoted: 7 common smartphone problems the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 solves instantly" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Password1.jpg?1416797184" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 2) &quot;I need a fast connection – always&quot; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>That feeling when you&#39;ve got halfway through an episode of your favourite TV show, the Wi-Fi drops and your phone network can&#39;t cope.

The Ascend Mate 7 has the intelligent Huawei Kirin 925 processor that&#39;s made up of four large A15 1.8 GHz and four small A7 1.3 GHz chipsets. They work in different configurations depending on needs.

To save on battery life, the Mate 7 will use the less power-hungry chips for simpler apps, and only start up others when playing games or media, or when the in-use chips begin nearing capacity.</p> <p>Battery life shouldn&rsquo;t be a big concern, however, with a huge 4100 mAh battery inside the startlingly thin case. Granted, that 6in 1080p display ought to command some serious juice, but Huawei claims that you&rsquo;ll get more than two full days&rsquo; estimated use on a single charge.</p> <p>One big standout feature this time around is the addition of a fingerprint sensor, which the company says is much faster than Apple&rsquo;s or Samsung&rsquo;s due to its single-touch design and 508ppi ratio for enhanced accuracy. It&rsquo;s on the back of the device, and it&rsquo;ll store up to five sets of prints for multiple users.</p> <p>The Ascend Mate 7 comes in two different configurations: a standard model with 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage for &euro;499 (nearly &pound;400), and a premium version with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage for &euro;599 (about S$972).

It&rsquo;s just that once you get to a certain level of thinness, the difference between a milimetre or two becomes far less obvious, especially when the phone has such a severe, boxy design. In real life the P7 just feels about as thin as an&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/iphone-5s/review" target="_blank">iPhone 5S</a>.</p> <p>The look is very much iPhone-like, too. The Huawei Ascend P7&rsquo;s sides are aluminium in iPhone 5S-like style and the front and back and super-flat panels of glass &ndash; did anyone say&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iphone-4s/review" target="_blank">iPhone 4S</a>?</p> <p>100 per cent original it may not be, but the Ascend P7 feels and looks reasonably expensive. Thanks to all that glass and metal, it doesn&rsquo;t flex under pressure at all (a&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review" target="_blank">Galaxy S5</a>&nbsp;does), and rather than having a pop-off back it uses metal trays for its SIM and microSD cards. You only get 16GB of storage, so Huawei couldn&rsquo;t really get away without adding a card slot.</p> <p>Not every part of the Huawei Ascend P7 design is an outright smash &ndash; the aluminium is that bit too shiny, there&rsquo;s a fair old bit of bezel above and below the display and some of the seams could be subtler. But it&rsquo;s certainly Huawei&rsquo;s fanciest phone to date, adding an extra layer of glass to last year&rsquo;s Ascend P6, which was actually even thinner.</p> <p>Compared to some of the latest Androids it&rsquo;s also pretty easy to handle. Huawei hasn&rsquo;t gone overboard with the screen size.</p> <p>And for sound the Huawei Ascend P7&rsquo;s internal speaker is remarkably OK given all you see of it is a 2mm thick strip of silver on the back. It&rsquo;s mono and it&rsquo;s not as loud as the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/g3/lg-g3/review" target="_blank">LG G3</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/sony/sony-xperia-z2-sirius/review" target="_blank">Xperia Z2</a>, but it has the extra bit of mid-range beefiness to stop it from sounding as thin as one of those whistles made from a blade of grass. It&rsquo;s not too bad at all.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review" target="_blank">Samsung Galaxy S5 review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Huawei has clearly been inspired by the iPhone 5s, and who can blame it?" alt="Huawei Ascend P7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-p7-s-2-16x9.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1600" height="900" title="Huawei Ascend P7" alt="Huawei Ascend P7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-p7-s-3.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1600" height="900" title="Huawei Ascend P7" alt="Huawei Ascend P7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-p7-s-5-16x9.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Screen daze </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Huawei Ascend P7 has a 5-inch screen, where the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review" target="_blank">Samsung Galaxy S5</a>, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/sony/sony-xperia-z2-sirius/review" target="_blank">Sony Xperia Z2</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/g3/lg-g3/review" target="_blank">LG G3</a> have all felt the need to edge over that size.

Here&rsquo;s where the Huawei Ascend P7 comes a bit of a cropper.</p> <p>While Huawei has clearly put a huge amount of effort into making the Ascend P7 thinner than a non-ghost written biography of a Premiership footballer, that seems to have come at the expense of software design.</p> <p>First of all the EmotionUI gets rid of the apps menu. Every app you have has a place on the home screens.&nbsp;As a result, a bit more admin is required to keep the phone in check than with other Android phones. Having no separate apps/home screens works with <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ios-7/ios-7/review" target="_blank">iOS 7</a>, but there&rsquo;s a reason why Google hasn&rsquo;t chopped the divide out of <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/android-45/review" target="_blank">Android L</a>.</p> <p>The Huawei Ascend P7 interface&rsquo;s look is a bit quirky, too. You get a bunch of different themes that change icons, home screens and more, but most of them look a bit off, a bit naff or as if they were designed for people who might buy Hello Kitty bedspreads. There&rsquo;s nothing with quite the class and simplicity of the latest standard version of Android, or the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/htc/htc-one-2/review" target="_blank">HTC One M8&rsquo;s</a> Sense UI.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/android-45/review" target="_blank">Android L preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="All apps go on the home screen, iOS-style" alt="Huawei P7 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-p7-s-8.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0.5 horse power </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Of course, with a bit of know-how you can change the Ascend P7&rsquo;s interface &ndash; with the Google Now app you can give it the Nexus 5 look without so much as a single hack. However, performance is harder to patch up.</p> <p>For a more-or-less top-end Android phone, the Ascend P7&rsquo;s performance is surprisingly weak. The phone uses a Hisilicon Kirin CPU rather than the Qualcomm kind often used in better-known phones. Why Hisilicon? It&rsquo;s a Huawei sub-brand, that&rsquo;s why.</p> <p>A quad-core 1.8GHz CPU like this sounds powerful enough, but it&rsquo;s not a patch on the Snapdragon 800 and 801 processors you can now get at this price, or for even less in some cases. To give you some idea, in the <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.primatelabs.geekbench3" target="_blank">Geekbench 3</a> benchmark the Ascend P7 comes out with 1803 points. With a Snapdragon 800-801 phone you&rsquo;d be looking at a score of 2800-3000 points. That&rsquo;s a massive gulf.</p> <p>Just talking about benchmarks in isolation can be as useful as talking about sub-prime mortgages to a five-year-old, but the power gap bleeds into real life too.</p> <p>When we first got hold of the Ascend P7 it was painfully laggy. You could grab a cup of tea while its keyboard caught up with your typing at times. This has improved with a few successive updates, but it&rsquo;s still far from the snappiest phone around &ndash; it&rsquo;s slower than the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/google-nexus-5/review" target="_blank">Nexus 5</a>, and even the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/moto-g/motorola-moto-g/review" target="_blank">Motorola Moto G</a> on occasion. It would be a bit harsh to say we&rsquo;re getting shafted by Huawei here, but it&rsquo;s slower than other phones at the price and some that cost less.</p> <p>You also lose out on some of the fanciest graphical effects in a few top games compared to phones such as the now-slightly-cheaper <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/lg-g2/review" target="_blank">LG G2</a> &ndash; and more or less anything pricier. It&rsquo;s an unexpected cost of siding with Huawei, whose chipset uses a less popular GPU than the Adrenos in most top-end phones these days. Think about that when you&rsquo;re boasting about how slim your phone is.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/g2/lg-g2-vs-lg-g3-10-reasons-upgrade/feature" target="_blank">LG G2 vs LG G3: 10 reasons to upgrade</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Has thinness come at the cost of performance?

It has a 13-megapixel main camera, using the Sony IMX 214 sensor. That&rsquo;s the same one used in the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/oneplus-one/review" target="_blank">OnePlus One</a>.</p> <p>In good lighting you can get some seriously detailed photos. Colours are fairly well-saturated and exposure is pretty decent. There&rsquo;s a bit more graininess in photos than you&rsquo;ll get from something such as the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review" target="_blank">Galaxy S5</a> &ndash; in all sorts of conditions &ndash; but it only really becomes too apparent when the lights go down a bit. A bit of super-fine grain is perfectly acceptable when the actual level of detail you&rsquo;re getting is great. Dynamic range could be better, though, and the inbuilt HDR mode isn&rsquo;t a patch on that of the Galaxy S5.</p> <p>For low-light conditions, the Ascend P7&rsquo;s auto mode has a reasonable stab at making everything appear coherent, and there&rsquo;s also a single LED flash on the back to help out if necessary. Flashes are particularly useful for those late-night party shots of people&rsquo;s faces, although the P7 doesn&#39;t intelligently balance colours the way the likes of the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/iphone-5s/review" target="_blank">iPhone 5s</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/g3/lg-g3/review" target="_blank">LG G3</a> do.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s no optical stabilisation or fancy focusing to the Ascend P7, but it&rsquo;s a solid camera. Better than the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/google-nexus-5/review" target="_blank">Google Nexus 5&rsquo;s</a> for example.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="359" mozallowfullscreen="" msallowfullscreen="" oallowfullscreen="" src="https://www.flickr.com/photos/99712217@N05/14708912818/in/set-72157646336205476/player/" webkitallowfullscreen="" width="640"></iframe></p> <p>The real song and dance of the phone&rsquo;s photo side, though, is the front camera. It has a 5-megapixel selfie camera. That&rsquo;s much higher-res than that of most other phones, bar the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/htc/htc-one-2/review" target="_blank">HTC One M8</a>.</p> <p>It&rsquo;ll render all your craggy bits with mid-life-crisis-inducing clarity, and there&rsquo;s even a selfie panorama that lets you get even wider-angle shots than the standard wide-angle lens. Huawei calls it a &quot;groufie&quot; shot, but that&rsquo;s even more tragic than exclaiming hashtags at the end of every other sentence in real-life conversations, so you won&#39;t catch us using the word again.</p> <p>All-in-all, though, if front cameras are your thing, the P7&#39;s is great.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/stuffs-guide-photography/feature" target="_blank">Stuff&#39;s Guide to Photography</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The 13MP rear snapper is the same as the one found on the OnePlus One" alt="Huawei P7 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-ascend-p7-9.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1600" height="900" title="The single flash is adequate, but doesn&#039;t cleverly balance colours the way a dual-flash can" alt="Huawei P7 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-ascend-p7-10.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> All night long (just not all day too) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Huawei Ascend P7 is a patchwork of good and not-so-good bits, and one of the negative elements we found hardest to live with was battery life.</p> <p>Not only does a super-slim largely-metal body tend to heat up quite a bit when doing tasks as easy as browsing over 3G, it also doesn&rsquo;t last as long as much of the competition. Want the stats? It has a 2500mAh battery that you, predictably enough, have no access to.</p> <p>While smaller than most other phones bar the 2300mAh <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/google-nexus-5/review" target="_blank">Nexus 5</a>, we&rsquo;d guess the blame probably lies with the the HiSilicon processor as well as the slightly smaller battery size. It just doesn&rsquo;t seem to have the same efficiency chops as the Snapdragon 800/801 brigade.</p> <p>It&rsquo;ll last for 8.5 hours when playing back video, while picking up emails in the background. That&rsquo;s fair enough, but a way below the 11-14 hours we&rsquo;ve squeezed out of phones such as the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/sony/sony-xperia-z2-sirius/review" target="_blank">Sony Xperia Z2</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/lg-g2/review" target="_blank">LG G2</a>. In real life &ndash; because most of us can&rsquo;t sit around watching re-runs of <em>Keeping Up Appearances</em> all day &ndash; we found that the battery drained to around 30 per cent by about eight in the evening.</p> <p>Unless you ride the Ascend P7 harder than a drunk Texan on a bucking bronco, you will get a full day out of the phone. But compared with the best you really miss out on that second-day battery buffer. And that is something we&rsquo;ve grown to rely on having used all of the other top-end 2014 Android candidates.</p> <p>Huawei does offer some power-saving modes to help out, but they perform the usual tricks of CPU throttling and stopping apps from doing anything when the screen&rsquo;s off. The Ascend P7 also constantly nags you when it thinks any apps are misbehaving, often with the informant culture of a fascist regime. We want to know when an app&rsquo;s doing something it shouldn&rsquo;t, but not be told off for receiving a few Whatsapp messages.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s easy to blame the slim-ness of the phone for the Ascend P7&rsquo;s battery life.

It has a high-end look and a nice, sharp, bright screen. Huawei is stepping up its game.</p> <p>But look at it in direct competition with phones such as the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/g3/lg-g3/review" target="_blank">LG G3</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review" target="_blank">Samsung Galaxy S5</a>, or even the older/cheaper <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/lg-g2/review" target="_blank">LG G2</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/google-nexus-5/review" target="_blank">Nexus 5</a>, and it doesn&rsquo;t quite stack up. Performance isn&rsquo;t great, the CPU seems aged right out of the gate and the quirky Huawei EmotionUI certainly won&rsquo;t be to everyone&rsquo;s taste.</p> <p>At this price it&rsquo;s certainly not a bad buy, and its camera is actually pretty good. But Huawei isn&rsquo;t up there with the big boys&#39; flagships just yet.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/smartphones/top-ten" target="_blank">The 10 Best Smartphones in the World right now</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Huawei Ascend P7 verdict" alt="Huawei Ascend P7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/huawei-ascend-p7-s-8.jpg?1409252928" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> power </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 6 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> screen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 8 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> build </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 7 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> apps </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 7 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Camera </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 7 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Huawei Ascend P7 looks and feels sharp, but a few issues and quirks mean it&rsquo;s not up there with the best Android phones of 2014</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disabled </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><legend>Carousel Extras</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Huawei Ascend P7 review </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/huawei/huawei-ascend-p7/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/huawei/huawei-ascend-p7/review#comments Android Huawei P7 Smartphones Tue, 26 Aug 2014 02:47:00 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1445898 at http://www.stuff.tv Spyshots of a Huawei smartphone with fingerprint sensor emerge http://www.stuff.tv/sg/huawei/spyshots-huawei-smartphone-fingerprint-sensor-emerge/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Will we see this China-made mobile device arrive in Singapore?

For years, Huawei has been knocking on the global door, and made some strides in its smartphone business.</p> <p dir="ltr">In particular, its Ascend P series of Android devices are well regarded for its slim form factor.

With its front and rear covered by the glossy Gorilla Glass 3, it&rsquo;s going to take a lot of wiping to keep the phone free from unsightly prints.</p> <p dir="ltr">Surprisingly, even with two slabs of glass sandwiching the P7, it&rsquo;s definitely as light as its 124g weight suggests. A few seconds with the phone gave us a good feel of the phone, which isn&rsquo;t hefty and fits naturally in our hands. Its angular design looks nice, and feels just as good in our hands since the edges are slightly rounded for a more natural fit.</p> <p dir="ltr">Its design is definitely a head-turner, especially when you turn it to the side to view its 6.5mm profile. As the unit was tethered to a security system, we didn&rsquo;t manage to slip it into our pockets to get a sense of how it feels. But judging from what we see, it shouldn&rsquo;t form an embarrassing bulk in your pants.</p> <p dir="ltr">Its design, however, is questionable. It doesn&rsquo;t take a genius to figure out where the inspiration came from. The full-on glass look reminds us of Apple&rsquo;s iPhone, right down to that small little band on the side. The late Steve Jobs quoting Picasso&rsquo;s &ldquo;good artist copy, great artists steal&rdquo; line comes to mind.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;</strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/xiaomi-mi3/review">Xiaomi Mi3 review</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Its angular design is complemented by round edges" alt="Huawei Ascend P7: hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Huawei%20Ascend%20P7%20Build%2002.jpg?1403748800" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Yup, definitely 6.5mm slim and looks like it could fit in our pockets easily" alt="Huawei Ascend P7: hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Huawei%20Ascend%20P7%20Build%2001.jpg?1403748800" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Hello, doppleganger" alt="Huawei Ascend P7: hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Huawei%20Ascend%20P7%20Build%2003.jpg?1403748800" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Display </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr" id="docs-internal-guid-7f57c8bc-a959-cd58-3c28-c644d65096d4">It&rsquo;s no 2K screen, but from what we&rsquo;ve noticed on the P7&rsquo;s full HD screen, that&rsquo;ll suffice.

It&rsquo;s the 8MP front camera that caught our attention. Of course, more pixels should mean better details, and while we didn&rsquo;t manage to get a decent selfie shot out of it, what might interest you is the front camera&rsquo;s ability to take panorama shots.</p> <p dir="ltr">It&rsquo;s definitely useful if you&rsquo;re trying to add more people to replicate Ellen Degeneres&rsquo; record-breaking selfie during the Oscars. But the features (at times utterly useless) manufacturers add to their products baffle us at times, and we&rsquo;re still reeling from the &ldquo;groufie&rdquo; term coined by Huawei. You just can&rsquo;t help but think of another kind of -fie that isn&rsquo;t quite legal in the world.</p> <p dir="ltr">Nonetheless, the minute we get our hands on the P7, we&rsquo;ll put both cameras to the test, more so for the 8MP front camera to see if our selfie shots actually improved with more pixels.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;</strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/8-things-you-might-not-know-about-iphone-camera/feature">8 things you didn&#39;t know the iPhone camera can do</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Please don&#039;t make us say groufies again" alt="Huawei Ascend P7: hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Huawei%20Ascend%20P7%20Camera%2001.jpg?1403748800" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Performance </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr" id="docs-internal-guid-7f57c8bc-a95b-b6e0-e25b-cc43c7746f1c">With the limited time we spent with the unit, and without running the phone through some benchmarks, we&rsquo;re holding our verdict for its performance. But first impressions count a lot, and the P7&rsquo;s HiSilicon Kirin 910T 1.8GHz quad-core processor impressed us with the smooth menu transitions in its UI.</p> <p dir="ltr">Loading a few apps at a go was managed pretty well by the 2GB RAM, but until we&rsquo;ve fully abused the final unit at a later date, we can&rsquo;t give a full verdict for this aspect.</p> <p dir="ltr">Speaking of UI, Huawei attached its customised Emotion UI skin onto the Android 4.4 KitKat running the P7. It&rsquo;s not exactly the prettiest UI we&rsquo;ve seen thus far, but on the surface, it&rsquo;s not as bloated as its previous versions.</p> <p>Speed-wise, the P7 is a 4G/LTE capable device, so if you&rsquo;ve plonked some extra cash to get the extra speed boost on your mobile plan, it&rsquo;s going to kick in when you do the usual Facebook or Instagram stalking. We hate to say this, but we weren&rsquo;t able to fully test its LTE speeds (seeing how the phone wasn&rsquo;t even connected to a network) and it&rsquo;ll be another question to answer in the final review.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Qualcomm and Intel don&#039;t reside here, just Huawei&#039;s own HiSilicon Kirin processor" alt="Huawei Ascend P7: hands-on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Huawei%20Ascend%20P7.jpg?1403748800" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Power </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr" id="docs-internal-guid-7f57c8bc-a95d-7c5d-b29c-e906cc8a0b3e">We won&rsquo;t be able to ascertain its battery mileage until the review unit is ready, but what we do know is that based on pure numbers, the 2500mAh battery isn&rsquo;t a high capacity battery. Considering even the 2K-toting LG G3 utilises a 3000mAh battery while its full HD competitors are powered by batteries with at least 3000mAh, it&rsquo;s something that we&rsquo;re concerned with.</p> <p>Huawei, however, has a power-saving feature that shuts down any background apps that are consuming unnecessary power.

Despite the movie inspired name though, we don&rsquo;t see anything from the design that looks anything Tron-like. It would have been nice if there were some flashing blue neon lighting on it.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s kitted out with some decent specs too. Powered by the Tegra 4 chipset, the Tron has 2GB of RAM and will come in 16 and 32GB configurations. Don&rsquo;t worry about saving space on it though, you&rsquo;ll be able to buff up that small amount of space up to 64GB via a microSD slot located at the base of the console. There are also the usual suspects like Ethernet support, Bluetooth, USB 3.0 and WiFI. 4K video playback isn&rsquo;t going to be an issue either as it does come with support for it.</p> <p>Huawei hasn&rsquo;t mentioned anything about pricing yet but it shouldn&rsquo;t cost more than the US$99 price tag of the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/ouya/review" target="_blank">OUYA</a>. For now it&rsquo;s going to be a China only release in the second quarter of this year but Huawei did mention that they do have plans for market expansion. Let&rsquo;s just hope that the Android gaming console concept doesn&rsquo;t die out first before they push it out.</p> <p>Source: <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2014/01/09/huawei-tron-android-gaming/" target="_blank">Engadget</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/0pVErNcT52A" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/ces-2014/huawei-jumps-android-gaming-bandwagon-their-tron-mini-console/news#comments Android Android games CES 2014 Games consoles Huawei Fri, 10 Jan 2014 02:11:04 +0000 Nigel Yap 1431077 at http://www.stuff.tv
