The Huawei Ascend G7
is awesome value for money. For starters, it’s a large-screened smartphone that costs less than £200, and we’d still recommend it if it retailed at twice that.
It makes use of a 5.5-inch, 1,280 x 720 display. While we wish it was a touch sharper, it’s bright and reproduces colours naturally. Build quality is excellent for the price. The G7’s rear is predominantly aluminium and it’s easy to hold too, despite its size, because it’s just 7.6mm thick. The main 13-megapixel sensor features HDR, which is a very welcome addition.
Under the hood is an unusual combination of an entry-level CPU and a good amount of RAM – the Snapdragon 410 and 2GB. While performance is solid, it’s not quite flawless. The 3,000mAh battery, however, is exceptional, and can keep the G7 powered for three days between charges. Price:
