Ascend P7 Stands Out For The Biggest Camera To Market Selfies

Another strong point of the smartphone from Huawei is the beautiful and functional interface that runs on top of Android

After the United States and the South Korean, reached the Chinese manufacturers. In a recent stint in Brazil, Chris Anderson, former editor of Wired magazine said that there is nothing more that the Chinese can’t do in terms of technology. The knowledge accumulated during before contract manufacturing has turned into a competitive differentiator in the disputed the Smartphone market. Not by chance the Huawei (pronounced au-uei) is responsible for one of the most interesting intermediaries in Brazil, the Ascend P7.

One of the highlights of the machine is, without doubt, the eight-megapixel front camera. In General, all the hardware is good, without misleading settings, exactly what is expected of a intermediate device in the House of 1000 real. However, what more surprises in your interface is P7 Ascend. Before the success of Motorola with the pure Android, is hard to even say that modifications on Android are better than the original version of the system. However, we can say that the interface Emotion 2.3 Huawei UI is one of the most beautiful and functional adaptations we’ve seen.

In favour:

-Eight-megapixel front-facing camera;
-4 g Connectivity;
-Nice Interface for Android.


-Body protected by glass, delicate material;
-Price above of direct competitors;
-Non-removable Battery.


Sophistication is a word that applies to Ascend P7. The version tested by the iG came in white and helps to give that impression. In terms of design, the device strongly reminiscent of the Xperia line Z from Sony, but with the bottom edge rounds. Both the back when the front of the machine are made of glass, more specifically of Gorilla Glass 3, which guarantees resistance to the appliance.

In your site, in fact, Huawei explains that the rear glass Ascend P7 was made with a surface treatment of seven layers and a process that increases transparency. However, this does not prevent biting after a fall over seeks.

On the side, a matte metal tape is the detail of personality. Another interesting feature of the Ascend P7 is discretion. Both the door to the SIM card and the micro SD which expands the memory are internal and need a specific key – that comes in the box-to be accessed.

The on and off button that also blocks the unit is small and round and sits just below the button that adjusts the volume, both flush with the side of your smartphone. The left side is totally flat. At the top is the entrance to the headset and a small dot that conceals a microphone for noise reduction. At the bottom, are the entrance to the micro USB cable and microphone.

Even the apparent hardware is discreet. Shortly before the start of the five-inch screen is downtown, one of the speakers, the light sensor and the front eight-megapixel camera. At the rear, in addition to the company logo in silver, is a 13-megapixel rear camera in the top left, next to the LED flash. The same left side, only the bottom of the back, found the second speaker. And if that wasn’t enough all this construction well aligned, the device is lightweight, weighs only 124 grams, and thin: 139.8 mm high, 68.8 mm wide and 6.5 mm thick only.

The box is almost an item part: elegant, she brings in addition to the basic accessories a key to open the doors of the chip and the micro SD card and two NFC tags to the user put it wherever you want. All pieces come in two boxes, very organized.


The hardware specifications of the Ascend P7 are well according to what is expected of a intermediate device. The processor is a quad core of Huawei, HiSilicon Kirin 910 Cortex-A9 of 1.8 GHz Quad Core CPU and Mali-450.

Performance tests done by the iG with help from specific applications, the Ascend P7 was above important devices. The AnTutu obtained 28041 points, above the Asus ZenFone 5, considered a model among the input and intermediate category, and very close to the LG G3, top South Korean line.

In Quadrant Standard, the Ascend P7 got 7198 points, close to the number of Bike G 2014, also an intermediate device. Browser test done with help of HTML 5, the unit Vellamo got 1837, close your direct competitor Galaxy Gran Prime, from Samsung.

Already in the test called Metal, the smartphone was with 960 points, above the Gran Prime and above the Bike G 2014. In Multicoe the score was of Vellamo 1258, below the Z3 Compact of Sony, which is a top of the line, and the Bike G but above the ZenFone 2014 5 from Asus. The unit also ran well heavier games, sometimes heating up the back, but nothing that might be considered out of the ordinary.

The appliance has 16 GB of storage, value compatible with your price range. In addition, the unit has room for micro SD card up to 32 GB, which expands the memory.

The RAM also complies with the expectations: are 2 GB. The same happens with the connectivity. The device has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with BLE and compatibility with NFC.


With five inches, the Ascend P7 brings an excellent IPS LCD screen. Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 has display pixel, 445 ppi density, 16 million colors and Corning Gorilla Glass protection 3. In addition to the sharpness and brightness, the screen delivery to the user defined colors and a white man more inclined to sepia, more suitable for reading.

Systems and applications

The Ascend P7 of Huawei wheel 4.4.2 version codenamed KitKat and a modified interface of the operating system from Google that is really welcome. Here, the pure Android is one of the preferences, but it must be said that the Emotion is very friendly and 2.3 UI that offers interesting customization features.

Early on we realized that Huawei wanted to give your appliances a personal touch, without exceeding the limits of common sense as other companies in the sector.

From the factory, the smartphone comes with very little widgets or application shortcuts on the home screen. A very nice feature is that you can change the transition between screens: my, for example, went from one to the other by mimicking the movement of a mill. The icons are modified, quite different from the original Android, but are beautiful and representative.

In addition, they change depending on the theme chosen. If the theme is more serious, as the Gentleman, the icons are more serious, with the file manager imitating a gray folder, for example. If it’s more fun, like that icon Shangrilla application turns into a yellow folder with leaves inside. Are changes that seem silly, but who can really help the user to leave the appliance with your guy. And not with the manufacturer.

The quick access menu at the top of the screen down like a curtain on top of what is on the screen. From the factory, it comes with too many shortcuts exposed, but is editable. Some good resources are also there, as the screenshot. In General capture a screen in an Android device is anybody’s guess, because changes from version to version, or even from manufacturer to manufacturer. A shortcut to this functionality, and several other, solves everything.

The few applications themselves are also quite useful in General, help manage the appliance, your battery and memory resources. One of them, for example, does the times mirror and shows the user’s face in a frame with the help of the front camera.


With 2,500 mAh, Ascend battery P7 is the average of the market. Intensive testing of the iG, done with Wi-Fi turned on and maximum brightness, the battery lasted 6 hours, a median value. As I stated earlier, the unit is one of the thinnest on the market, with a glass back, so the battery is embedded. For fans of removable battery, is a point that censure.


The camera is certainly a key differentiator of the Ascend P7. First because the appliance brings an 8-megapixel front camera, rare specification on the market, even with the recent releases of said equipment for selfies, who have five megapixel camera. With an aperture of f. 2, 13 megapixel camera and LED Flash, the rear camera makes pictures of excellent quality, very close to the actual colors and bright images.

The Ascend P7 camera software has various modes of configuration, such as selfie and the funniest way beauty I’ve ever seen. In fact, the program fulfills its promises and let anyone without wrinkles or imperfections, but with a wax Doll or just want to post the picture on Instagram.


For a brand that is not so regular release schedule of the year, Huawei hit the nail on the head with the Ascend P7. The intermediate device has a good chance of winning the user who is migrating from an Android for a higher performance and a good cost-benefit ratio. And, more than that, the Chinese manufacturer proved that learned from the masters and that is able not only to make a great hardware, but to understand the software needs of your potential customers and to surprise with the biggest camera to selfie the market.
