It offers a 10-level beauty mode slider, which allegedly enhances your face by improving blemishes and skin tones, though it mostly smears the face detail as a result.

Throw in speedy 4G connectivity at a price set to undercut its peers and the whole package is an attractive prospect.

Reviews Word on the street for the Huawei Ascend P7

The phone's 463 nits of peak brightness are at the mark for a good display, and the screen reflectance is kept in check, so we are pleased with the outdoor visibility of the Ascend P7.

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.


8.4 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Resolution isn't everything of course, with brightness and colour also of key importance.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)
While the above elements do indeed look good, it's small details that let the device down.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)
Viewing angles are solid too, and it's only the glossy glass exterior that's likely to cause any issues with ability to see the screen when outside, although auto-brightness does a good enough job of managing output levels.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)


We were still able to shoot in fairly low light thanks to the f/2.0 aperture letting plenty of light meet that sensor.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)
This time around, Huawei has placed a 13 MP camera in the Ascend P7, with a backside-illuminated Sony Exmor sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and five-element lens.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
Even so, the shots we obtained are just as good as other 13-megapixel rivals.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)


The music player is pretty attractive visually, with the obligatory tune categorization by artists, albums and genres, as well as album art depiction.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
These include staples like a small messaging window, calculator, calendar, music player, and a notes app but you can only fire up one of those floating apps at a time.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
Huawei has placed the typical for today's flagships 2 GB of RAM in the handset, so a serious active apps queue can be formed before you run out of it.

We'd just like a better battery life to crush its rivals and then we'd happily pocket the change.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)
One area we feel isn't quite as strong as the competition is battery life.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)
This basic mode switches the phone into a black and white display that is like using another device entirely, but it's great for saving battery consumption.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)


Admittedly it does so just as there's talk of 2K panels on the horizon, but at 1080p the Ascend P7 feels just right.
by PocketLint (May, 2014)
In addition, the Ascend P7 plays most popular video formats thrown at it out of the box, including DivX/Xvid/MKV files up to 1080p resolution.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
The video player is rather barebones, though, with no loop function, or subtitle support.
