At IFA 2014, We also saw some smartphones released by Hauwei, The company is although considered a underdog in the market of smartphones but it released four new smartphones in the conference and those smartphones are indeed amazing and worth looking into, The best one among them according to me was Ascend mate 7, Its indeed a great smartphone with everything required to stand among the latest and best smartphones of the market.
As the Company starts to grow in the market their quality of smartphones i also increasing, Latest smartphone with high end specs is the Ascend mate which is equipped with a 6” display screen and it has the qualities to stand along the best smartphones of this era.
The first thing that you will notice about Ascend Mate 7 is its size, Its a huge smartphone with an amazing screen size, its screen is of 6” its one of the biggest phablet ever seen, I wonder how it would fit into pockets, But Hauwei have played intelligently they have reduced the size of bezels to minimum, that makes its dimension slightly greater that the recently released Note 4 although Note 4 screen size is 5.7”.The Ascend mate 7 is carrying JDI manufactured IPS-NEO screen that gives it contrast ratio of 1500:1 along with reduced power consumption and increased brightness.Huawei has claimed that this new screen will offer 15% better transmissitivity along with 15% reduced power consumption.As soon as we get our hands on to this Ascend Mate 7 we will test the claims of the company about the power reduction and increase in brightness.In the presentation of Ascent mate 7 it looked like that the screen begins just as the bezel ends, but looking closely it shows that there is 3mm of black line between bezels and screen.
The Ascend Mate 7 best thing that impressed me is that it has 83% body-to-screen ratio,That outclasses Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and iPhone 5S. As I said before its just a bit larger than Galaxy note 4 but its width is less than it with just 7.9mm difference.
Ascend Mate 7 Review: Features
Huawei Ascend Mate 7 stands as another great achievement of Chinese company although its name misleads its not of 7 inches but of 6 inch with a full HD screen. The device is also equipped with a fingerprint scanner at the back and its display screen resolution is 2,560 x 1,600 pixel along with minimum bezel size.
Although the fingerprint scanned of HTC One Max scanner required a swipe to unlock whereas this Ascend mate 7 fingerprint scanner just requires a touch..
Another feature that impressed me is its active noise cancelling technology that is present in the headphones that are powered by the phone it self this technology is also present in the Xperia Z3, And amazing thing is that the front camera is of 5 Megapixels.
Ascend Mate 7 has a big battery that gives an amazing battery life the battery is of 4000 mAH and it can also be used to charge other devices as well. Availibility and price was not disclosed at the IFA conference but this smartphone will really make a difference in the market.
There is a ton of high-end technology in it and with the large display, it may be a threat to small tablets.

The specs of Ascend mate 7 are enough to make it stand with the best smartphones of the market, It is equipped with the latest specs enough to make it look like a beast, Although the looks stands out of this smartphone but the specs are no less than the looks, Under the screen there is a powerful octa-core Kirin 825 processor that has 4 x A15 1.8GHz chips and 4 x A7 1.3GHz chips,Fixed in to a body that is just 7.9mm thick.
