Huawei brings out the heavy hitter to end the year and it is quite a beauty.
Ever since they made it into the smartphone scene, Huawei has become one of the fastest growing manufacturers in the world. They’ve garnered quite a following as well as they have managed to produce affordably priced smartphones that come with features and performance that most users will be happy with. However, the company is looking to step their game up with what
has to be their most impressive offering to date, the Ascend Mate 7. Now, if you like phones that are larger than 4- or 5-inches, then you’re in luck as the Ascend Mate 7 has a 6-inch display.
With a size like that though, the phone is a little unwieldy.
As for performance, the Ascend Mate 7 produced scores that can rival any other flagship device from other brands and was smooth and snappy throughout our time with it. Surprisingly though, when we played games like Asphalt 8 and Dead Trigger 2, there was noticeable lag. Finally, when it comes to battery performance, the 4,100mAh performs just as well as we expected it too. With
moderate usage, we only had to recharge the phone in two days. So if you don’t like carrying powerbanks with you, then it seems like Huawei has the answer.

While some may consider it to be still a little pricey, we find that for what it offers, the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is actually quite a good deal as it is still much cheaper than most flagships out there. Of course, if you have a little more spare change, then we suggest getting the RM1,999 variant which comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage.
