Huawei have finally stepped into 2014 with their new flagship, the Ascend P7. The new Android smartphone succeeds the Ascend P6, known as the”thinnest smartphone” in the world at 6.2mm thin, a feat even the new Ascend P7 couldn’t match.

Even though this may be one shortcoming of the new Ascend P7, there are plenty of advantages to the new smartphone from Huawei, including the new 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, a big upgrade on the 720p screen on the Ascend P6.

Internally, the Ascend P7 is packed with a 1.8GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a 32GB microSD slot for expandable storage and a 2500mAh battery. The cameras are a little funky, an 8MP sensor is on the front of the device and a 13MP sensor is on the back.

Normally, phone manufacturers just add a small sensor onto the front, as it will only be used for selfies and video call. As the usage of the front facing camera has increased, Huawei has looked to up the quality of the photos to make them more in line with the rear camera.

The software running on the Huawei Ascend P7 is Android KitKat 4.4, underneath the Chinese manufacturers own skin, named Emotions UI 2.3. The Emotions UI has been updated for the new phone and features an overhaul on design and some new features for users.

The design overhaul was needed on Emotions UI 2.3, the previous version was rather abysmal and had essences of TouchWiz, LG’s UI and Sense all bundled into one big heap of rubbish. Thankfully, they have toned down a bit and made the good parts look better.

As for software features, Huawei has added an anti-virus app, permissions manager and network management onto the Ascend P7. We have heard Android malware is rather easy to keep away from as long as you don’t download any random applications without reviews or validation.

We are not sure when we will see the Huawei Ascend P7 in the West, the Chinese company will be launching it on homeground first and expand out from there.
