It's big, it's powerful, it's here - Huawei Ascend P7

Check out the Chinese company’s flagship for 2014!
While everybody was focusing on big brands like Samsung or HTC, it seems that a manufacturer from China, which is not that famous (yet), is working hard and it’s ready to compete with them.
We’re talking about Huawei, a company that has some time on the market, but thanks to the lack of aggressive marketing strategies and, in some cases, people being skeptical about buying a Chinese phones, it’s still not in the top. Personally, I think it should be there, between the top player. Why? Just wait to see what phone they just released a few hours ago…
The Huawei Ascend P7 comes with a full HD 5 inch display, covered in Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, surrounded by tiny bezels and an overall design reminding us of the iPhone 4, with rounded corners and a completely flat back. Should I mention that it’s rocking an extremely thin design, which at 6.5 mm is way thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the iPhone 5S. It’s by far the best looking Huawei device we’ve seen until now.
Under the hood we have a Huawei-made HiSilicon Krin 910T chiipset, with a quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU, clocked at 1.8 GHz, Mali 450 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The operating system is Android 4.4 KitKat, customized with the Emotion 2.3 user interface, bringing visual improvements in addition to a bunch of new features. Still, stock Android is my first love…
The internal storage counts 16 GB, but it’s expandable with up to 32 GB, thanks to the microSD card slot. There’s also a 2500 mAh battery, estimated to run for about 400 hours of 4G stand-by time and 14 hours of talking.
As for the camera department, we’re dealing with a 13 MP snaper and Sony BSI sensor, alongside an LED flash, able to take 1080p videos. Yeah, no 4K for this one…
The phone will be available starting with this month, at a price of about $760, in a lot of countries around the world. We know, it’s far from being cheap, but even though this phone doesn’t come from such a ‘famous’ manufacturer, it’s worth every penny.
What do you say? Should we give Huawei Ascend P7 a chance?
