Again delivering incredible value for money, the Huawei Ascend G7
is damn impressive. It’s a large-screened mobile that costs less than £200, and we think Huawei could get away with selling it at twice the price.
It’s well-built and attractive too. The rear is predominantly aluminium, and the 7.6mm thickness makes it easy to hold, despite its size. The display is a 5.5-inch, 1,280 x 720 panel. It’s not the sharpest we’ve ever seen, but it’s bright and accurate, reproducing colours naturally. The cameras are also better than what you’d expect at this price, with the main 13-megapixel sensor featuring HDR.
Inside is an interesting combination of a basic CPU and a good amount of RAM – the Snapdragon 410 and 2GB. Performance is good but not quite flawless. However, battery life is exceptional, and it’s just about possible to go for three days between charges.
