Huawei Ascend Mate 7 16GB Review

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 enters into an already competitive phablet market with the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Apple iPhone 6 plus. ItÕs seen as an alternative to the Huawei Ascend p7 with a larger screen, rather than a replacement. However, itÕs the successor to Ascend Mate 2 and it comes with a smaller screen size. Being their latest flagship device, the Chinese company had to make sure that it was the best.



At a glance, you will be pleased by its aluminum unibody which makes you think of the HTC One M8 immediately. The better looking UI round out and a fingerprint scanner on the rear, are some of the first things that you will notice with this phablet. For the business people who would like an additional sim card, the micro SD card slot offers this option. It does not only have a smaller screen size, but also slimmer as compared to its predecessor. When it comes to screen to body ratio, Huawei beat the Galaxy Note 4 with a 3% margin.



The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is a good phablet but as you would expect, faces a lot of competition from Nokia Lumia 1520, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the IPhone 6 plus. So where does it excel and where should you expect some flaws? Its performance is solid although Huawei opted for an outdated OS. Its battery is a hungry one, but still manageable. A 13MP camera is just good enough for the average phablet user. Finally, the fingerprint scanner is a good addition which seems like itÕs going to be a standard for phablets since Apple introduced it.



Although the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 isn’t the best phablet around, itÕs really worth it and it doesnÕt give you that feeling of being duped by a Chinese company trying to do what other bigger companies are doing. No, it has its upgrades which are really useful. First of all, everyone is looking for a large screen and Huawei did it correctly without any flaws. Its aluminum body doesnÕt bring any problems to the balance so the phablet is easy to use and carry around. The ability to lock apps with the new fingerprint features is also an added advantage.



Although the battery is a bit of a hungry beast, Huawei did solve that issue in a good way by introducing a power management app. Of course the OS wonÕt compare to Android and iOS but it is something that can get the job done painlessly. The sound was a bit of a problem when viewing videos and this is something that might not be a big issue but gamers would need to keep it mind.



In conclusion, if you donÕt have that money to get the iPhone 6 plus or Galaxy Note 4, then you have an option which is cheaper and functional. DonÕt forget that the phone is sleek too.

  • The Good :
    Good battery life, Aluminum casing, Functional fingerprint scanner
  • The Bad :
    Redundant bloat ware
Our score:
4 / 5
