The new Huawei Ascend Mate 7 has proved that size does count, and that having a bigger mobile device is better. This is true to users who are not table fans considering that chances are high that the Mate 7 will make them reconsider their stance.
Why a big device?
A bigger device means a bigger screen, a bigger battery, and high-end performance – all of which still fits in your hand. At R5, 900, the raise in size and power over a conventional Smartphone does not equate to an increase in price, either.
Maximising the screen experience
Huawei Ascend Mate 7 has a big screen FHD 6-inch screen with a pixel density of 368PPI, making the display sharp and bright. Its high screen-to-body ratio and thin bezel makes it feel as though the Mate 7 is all screen, and the screen is good for games and videos.
The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 has a slim, stylish aluminium frame that makes it look the part of a high-end smartphone. It’s a big device, but its 7.9mm thick body and 83% screen-to-body ratio means it is comfortable in a user’s hand. It has also made one-handed operation simpler by incorporating a gravity sensor that shifts the keyboard and pop-up windows when the phone is tilted.
Size means increased battery life
Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is a power saving device whose 4100mAh battery can easily last two days with above moderate usage, and just over a day with heavy usage. Huawei also provides normal, smart, and ultra power-saving modes to optimise the power-performance balance of the device.
No more passwords
Huawei Ascend Mate 7 has a fingerprint scanner rather than typing in a password. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the handset, in easy reach of your index finger, and only requires a single touch to unlock your phone.
The device uses its Hisilicon Kirin 925 chipset and i3 sensor management unit in the device. Its octa-core architecture is activated in different configurations depending on the power needs of an app or function. The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 also boasts of LTE Cat6 connectivity, with speeds of up to 300Mbps.
