Huawei mate 7 Overview
Huawei have some great handsets on the market and the Huawei Mate 7 certainly comes in packing some top end specs and quite comfortably sits at the higher end of the mobile market. With a 6 inch 6” FHD Screen the Huawei Mate 7 has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 offering 1080p and 368ppi, this will give media such as video a crisp and vivid look.
Behind the scenes of the Huawei Mate 7 sits a real powerhouse, an Octa-core processor that will provide all the power you need, more than what the iPhone 6 and LG G3 can offer. Coupled with 2GB of RAM you've got power and enough memory for getting about the device and no fear of things slowing down. This will prove essential for using the fingerprint scanner and getting the device to wake up from sleep mode in a timely fashion.
Keeping everything ticking over is the massive non-removable 4,100mAh battery and, to ensure you get the most out of it Huawei have also given you the option to control what apps and functions run, this will help push the time between charges depending on how you use the device, that beautiful 6 inch HD screen is just asking for movies and other media to be used so it’s good to have the ability to keep an eye on what your battery is doing.
Housing and keeping everything inside is the metal body. Although the Huawei Mate 7 screen is 6 inches the almost invisible bezel and a high screen-to-screen ratio of 83% will feel more compact that other devices of similar size. With dimensions of 157 x 81 x 7.9, and weighing in at 185g, the Huawei Mate 7 is perfect for those looking for a device that can serve their media needs but still keep in touch with friends and family be that via a phone call, email or Hangouts and other messaging services.
For snapping away whilst out and about, or at special events, the Huawei Mate 7 includes a 13 megapixel lens at the rear and, for video calls, a 5 megapixel camera can be found to the front. You can also download a host of image editing apps or use the on board filters to give your pictures your own look and feel.
For those looking at a device that can be used for both work and play Huawei has included the option for you to run a second sim card, in some locations dual sim cards are difficult to obtain and in an age where many work forces are using their own devices the Huawei Mate 7 offers the microSD card slot as either a memory expansion on top of the 16GB internal memory or a slot for a nanosim. Both sims can run off 4G so you'll be able to download a movie from Google Play or an email attachment from work super fast depending on network speeds.
Your data is important and it's yours so to keep. To keep it yours the way the Huawei Mate 7 comes with a fingerprint scanner. This allows you to open the device when it has been idle and get access to apps that hold any sensitive information. Visitor mode gives you the reassurance that handing your phone over to someone won't see you doing the same to your data.
