Huawei is betting on a thin line with ultra-thin design and a balanced technical profile
Huawei has a comprehensive offering of smartphones with a head model which was introduced just a few days ago. The Huawei Ascend P7 comes nearly a year after the Ascend P6 and improved many key aspects such as screen, the processor or camera photo. The terminal is noted for its ultra-thin design and for its price, something tighter than most high-end devices that are currently available. Then we make a comparison to see the points that have improved relative to the previous edition.
Huawei has decided to follow the dominant trend betting on a panel of five inches with HD resolution in its latest model. In addition, the panel Huawei Ascend P7 is made to the system in-cell touch, which gets a much thinner piece. The Huawei Ascend P6 has a screen of 4.7 inches diagonal, but also quite wide which complies with HD resolution, so its density is 312 ppi versus 441 ppi the new model.
The company also remains committed to a very similar design language, but improves the materials and finishes on the Huawei Ascend P7. The terminal is covered on both sides with glass resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which also has a texture on the back side. Both feature an aluminum frame that is displayed on the edges and gives them more resistance to falls. Thinness was one of the main demands of the Huawei Ascend P6, which has a profile of 6.18 mm. The Huawei Ascend P7 is still very thin, but in this case remains in 6.5 millimeters. Note that the new model has increased the size of discreet, getting substantially equal weight.
As mentioned, the camera is one of the points that have been enhanced with The Huawei Ascend P7, which has a 13 megapixel BSI sensor, accompanied by software IMAGESmart 2.0 and image signal processor. The lens is composed of five elements and is open f/2.0. It has the usual features like LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging and of course recording videos, which in this case they are recognized as full HD at 30 frames per second.
However, it is the front chamber where we surprised the Ascend P7 with an eight-megapixel BSI sensor and several functions aimed at the realization of self-portraits or selfies, including an option to selfies group or views. The Huawei Ascend P6 has one eight-megapixel rear camera that also equips the basic functions we talked about, including recording FullHD video at 30 frames per second. Huawei has already made an approach to the selfies with its five-megapixel front camera and so beautifully, but clearly led it to a new level with the latest model.
The media profile of both models supports the formats most common music, pictures, videos and documents. They also have a radio tuner integrated.
Huawei is betting on a processor in its own manufacturing new model, but obviously improved. The new Ascend P7 has a HiSilicon Kirin 910T is manufactured by the process of 28 nanometers and runs at 1.8 Ghz. The series Huawei Ascend P6 leaves a chip Huawei K3V2, manufactured with the system of 40 nm and operating at 1.5 GHz clock frequency. Both are supported by 2 GB of memory RAM.
We keep talking about memory, but in this case we refer to the internal storage. The Huawei Ascend P7 features a background of 16 GB which can be expanded to 64 GB using additional cards MicroSD. Meanwhile, the Huawei Ascend P6 offers 8Gb and also accepts MicroSD, but 32 GB maximum.
The Huawei Ascend P7 has an advantage in the operating system since, to be newer, comes standard with Android 4.4 KitKat, the latest version of the mobile system of Google. The Huawei Ascend P6 is scheduled to receive the update, but for now is still on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Besides the differences of each version, also updated Huawei Emotion UI interface with the latest model, adding some new features like the blocked contacts list, how to save battery or do not disturb mode. Interface of Huawei stands out for its simplicity and customization options offered, ranging from topics animations.
The Huawei Ascend P7 pays special attention to the connections; especially in the face of mobile networks support 4G. Besides its dual antenna and more powerful, in order to maximize the coverage available and switch between 3G and 4G quickly. Furthermore, both models share the same profile of connectivity that includes free WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, WiFi Direct, DLNA, Bluetooth, satellite GPS, NFC, port MicroUSB jack and headphones.
The Huawei Ascend P7 also increases battery capacity reaching 2,500 milliamps. The company says it can withstand two days of use, but if we give intensive use could reduce the time to one day. The battery of Huawei Ascend P6 carries a 2,000 milliamp capacity that can be switched between 28 and 14 hours, depending connections we use. The duration rest goes 416 hours on 2G to 315 hours on 3G.
