Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review

 

Is big beautiful again?

Aluminium casing ; Decent fingerprint scanner ; Solid battery life

Annoying speaker placement ; Redundant bloatware ; Gesture control is hit and miss

Ratings in depth Phablet devices are big business right now. It's courtesy of devices like the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and this; the Huawei Ascend Mate 7.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review

 

Phablet fans rejoice! The six-inch Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is an all-metal monster.

Gigantic Full HD screen ; Decent design and build ; Long battery

You need two hands to use it ; Interface is underwhelming ; Less pixels than rivals

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review - Pocket-lint

 

Decent and giant screen, considerable battery life, excellent fingerprint scanner, ample Android performance, battery life can last for an age, competitive price point, metal body design feels premium

6-inch screen means huge a handset, default theme is horrid (as are most downloadable ones), vibrate alert feeble, some software irks, battery life could still be better given 4100mAh capacity

There's no escaping the Huawei Ascend Mate 7's physical size. This may be one giant phone, but it's also the embodiment of Huawei coming of age. It's big meets beautiful with premium design flair, a great fingerprint scanner, ample performance and a...

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

 

6-inch phones finally start to make sense

Decent value ; Solid design ; Huge, good-quality screen ; Good battery life

Software not great fresh out of the box ; Some minor build issues

Other less interesting aspects of the phone still worth noting include that it uses dual pop-out trays for microSIM and microSD cards on the left edge. You get a reasonable 16GB of storage in the phone, but a memory card slot boosts up its media cred...

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Review: In Depth

 

We review Huawei's Ascend Mate 7, a massive, well-specced premium phablet packing a fingerprint scanner and a very unique interface.After churning out plastic fantastic mobiles for yonks, Huawei has…

Strong performance ; Sharp Full HD screen ; Neat UI tweaks ; Decent battery life

Niche audience ; Battery takes ages to charge ; Photos sometimes over-saturated ; Cluttered desktops

The Ascend Mate 7 is one of Huawei's finest premium devices to date, but of course that 6-inch hulking beast isn't for everyone. If your priority is rocking a massive Full HD screen, the Mate 7 should satisfy. The camera isn't top of its league but...

Большой металлический флагманский фаблет от компании Huawei

Еще раз стоит подчеркнуть, что смартфон Huawei Ascend Mate 7 будет продаваться в ноябре, но конкретные даты не называются. Собственно, неизвестна и цена, даже примерно. Мы можем только предполагать, что за аппарат попросят не меньше 23 000 – 24 000...

Смартфон Huawei Ascend Mate 7 с шестидюймовой диагональю экрана произвел положительное впечатление, однако на фоне большинства современных аппаратов этого класса выделяется слабо: сейчас практически все устройства снабжены качественными экранами,...

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 review

 

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is a semi-affordable big screen smartphone that offers top-end performance, above average battery life and decent camera quality. However, detrimental software additions make it slightly unintuitive to use.

Great design, powerful processor, above average battery

Emotion UI makes needless changes that hamper performance and make the phone less user friendly

Expert review by: James Peckham (knowyourmobile.com)

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Review: WOT YOU LOOKIN AT MATE?

 

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 marks the first time the company has attempted to make a phablet for the high-end market. Huawei has previously released the Ascend Mate and Ascend Mate 2, two credible mid-range phablets

Nice metal design, easy to hold, fantastic battery life, solid build, good value for money

Awful UI, old version of Android, lots of bloatware, may be too big for some

Huawei’s latest attempt at making a phablet brings with it a good build quality and design alongside some kick-ass battery life. Poor UI problems and the fact it is running an old version of Android do let it down.

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...
