Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

Huawei's new hero phone isn't going to worry the flagships

Incredibly slim and light ; Fantastic 8MP front camera ; Bright 1080p screen

Glitchy notifications display ; Poor-man's iOS 7 clone ; Disappointing battery life

An uninspiring homage to all phones that came before it, saved by a stonking front cam for the "selfie" crowd and an unbelievably light body.

Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

Huawei just took the gloves off. The Ascend P7 is the most serious smartphone that the Chinese company has ever made, designed to offer decent performance wrapped around a 5-inch HD screen and admirable design. Throw in speedy 4G connectivity at a...

Thin and light design, ample performance, price point should be competitive, decent cameras front and rear, call blacklist options, quality screen

Battery life and continual consumption warnings, flat design not most comfortable in hand, some camera gimmickry, will struggle to stand out in premier pack

Huawei has made a decent smartphone in the Ascend P7. It's a considerable step up from the earlier P6 model thanks to a larger scale 1080p screen and a design that avoids treading into the "oversized" category.

The Huawei Ascend P7: an Android smartie that's thin, powerful and super-light

Smashing screen ; Knockout selfie camera ; Amazing value

Uneven take on Android ; Scary beauty feature ; Average battery life

Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

Can Huawei tempt you away from the usual smartphone suspects with the slim and pretty P7?

Sharp and bright 5in screen ; Super slim and fairly sexy ; Decent camera

Weak processor for the price ; Quirky software doesn't hit the mark ; Some performance issues

The Huawei Ascend P7 looks and feels sharp, but a few issues and quirks mean it’s not up there with the best Android phones of 2014

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...

Huawei Ascend P7 review

 

For starters, the price of the Ascend P7 is very reasonable for a flagship smartphone. Huawei has undercut rivals with a recommended retail price of €449, we expect it to sell for £399 SIM-free in the UK but we'll let you know once we have a figure in...

Huawei has produced a stunning smartphone in the Ascend P7 and this is couple with good value for money with that non-flagship price tag. There's some decent hardware on offer here, particularly the camera but the P7 is let down by software performance...
