It is their strategy to stand up to the current playing top the trump card of a smaller price to which is added a superb design.However, how serves this terminal, where is situated exactly on the market and whichfeatures specialoffers are some of the questions that we reveal in thisanalysis.As you can see in the above table is a remarkable breakthrough in front Ascend P6 specifications. We will have a display of5 inches FullHDof high quality, which we will discuss further below, integrated SoC works at higher clock frequency (1.8 GHz) but here the important point is the improvement in the Integrated GPU, Mali 450 MP4.We also haveLTE Cat.4connectivity (up to 150 mbps), every day more extended, and finally, mention a better system of dual camera and a battery that grows 25% against the 2,000 mAh of the P6 Ascend.Design, natural evolution of the P6 AscendIf you are of those who liked the launch of iPhone 4 as aslim Smartphonewhich had glass from the back, design that we've seen repeated in numerousAndroid Smartphonesposteriori (Nexus 4, LG Optimus G and, for example, Xperia Z2 ), Ascend P7 design you will like.We could define the design of Ascend P7 as a strong commitment by the company to have a differential element where theGorilla Glassprotection plays a basic role on the screen and in the back, that shows a pattern that appears to move when it affects the light on it.We are facing a terminal of only6.5 mm thickand this is possible thanks to a design in aluminium in the Center. The size of Ascend P7 and its low weight will make you ask yourself on occasion what have you done with the phone, although you really follow in the Pocket where you left it. In fact, it is the terminal of 5 inch lighter of which they have analyzed.We will not deceive anyone, design recalls largely to aniPhone 4/4sand even the back of the camera is very similar to Xperia Z2 , but what really differentiates this terminal from the rest is the lower part which, instead of being a part, flat is curved and it is where is located the main microphone and micro USB connector.We will not deceive anyone, design recalls largely to an iPhone 4/4s and even the back of the camera is very similar to Xperia Z2 , but what really differentiates this terminal from the rest is the lower part which, instead of being a part, flat is curved and it is where is located the main microphone and micro USB connector.Removing them requires a small punch tool that comes with the terminal in its box along with the hands free, cable USB to micro USB charging 220V adapter - 5V 1A.At the top we find the mini jack for hands-free connector / headphones and a small hole where the secondary mic, for cancellation of noise as we speak, or recording stereo video.The front has a sober design and is covered by Gorilla Glass 3 in its entirety with the exception of the metal grill of the speaker for talks. The Android buttons are displayed on screen, sothe bottom frame does not have utility rather than to show another logo company.In the upper frame we have the 8 megapixel camera that will captureseriesof great quality as we will see in the section on the camera.If we now look at the back, we can see a finish in Crystal, friend of fingerprints, in that in the upper left corner mounting 13 Mpx camera and LED flash, and the same vertical at the bottom, the speaker whose quality has pleasantly surprised us.Screen, the height of range Bush them One of the weak points that we detected Ascend P6 model was that its screen remained in 720 p when all manufacturers launched its top of range resolution1080p.With Ascend P7, Huawei has made a great effort of integration because it has not only increased the screen size up to5 inchesbut has achieved in a design which is only 6.5 mm thick.This screen isIPSwhich promises a wide viewing angles and is something that we have seen no problem.Apart from this technology we have seen how offers someintense colorsand a few good degraded because you can display more than 16 million colors.It is a panel that offers good contrast and brightness, we have been able to measure 465 lux, still at the height of terminals such as Galaxy S5 or LG G2, but what we liked most wasit tight is the automatic brightness control mode.Dark low brightness to a minimum level which does not disturb in view and on the street in broad daylight the Sun system raises brightness making visible and manageable terminal offering a better experience than sometop Smartphonesof range of competition.Felt us very complete paragraph of display settings found in settings since it offers thepossibility to adjust parameters such as the temperature of the display color.Also it is worth commenting that we have in settings - > accessibilitymode glovesthat increase the sensitivity of the touch screen as necessary to be able to work with them.Performance, reaching the last year flagship Huawei has done a great job to get manufactured this terminal at a price so adjusted and so they have had to sacrifice some aspects.Performance is one of them, but you do not alarmist, is aSmartphonethat is fully capable of running games of last generation or work seamlessly in your day to day without any problem. However,it is quite behind performance offering bumper range current Android Smartphones.SoC developed by Huawei makes use of a quad-core, similar to Cortex A9 CPU, running at a maximum of 1.8 GHz frequency. The GPU shows a big improvement over the last year, and is the Mali GPU 450 MP4 to get one performance more than sufficient for most tasks even demanding 3D games.In factthe Smartphoneuses technologyenhances Dolby Digital Plus audio(DTS) and noted both in the speaker as when we use it with headphones where the perceived change is better.As a small problem we can comment that sound that reproduces the back speaker is rather blocked if the terminal is resting on a flat surface with the back on it.Huaweimusic applicationhas a simple interface and offers us 4 playlists so that we catalog our music allowing us to additionally filter the typical low duration (WhatsApp audio) audio for example. Other options are basic, allowing us to choose which folders to search, for example. We we miss, for example, EQ modes.We will be able to tune FM radio stations around the world with Ascend P7, that if, as with mostSmartphones, we will need to have connected the headphones that make antenna.Photography with Ascend P7, the King of theselfies Huawei terminal offers a good photography system. Rear13 megapixelsensor with auto focus and LED Flash and front 8-megapixel backlit with fixed focus.Huawei has wanted more give a twist to one of the current trends in photography, self-portraits or as they say the Anglo-Saxonsselfieswith thefront camera. In fact it offers something that we have not seen in any other device, the possibility of takinga panoramic selfie. The functionality of panoramic photography in which we captured multiple images and theSmartphonefuse them into one applied to the front camera.In addition, Huawei remains committed to its beauty mode which softens skin tones and eliminates wrinkles by way of virtual make-up, with the possibility of choosing different degrees of retouching.Typical filters can also be applied to the images that we catch with front camera, in real time, and a curious way to watermark to "burned" in the picture date and place where done among others. As for video recording, you get a very good quality, perfect both for video calls with quality FullHD as to record any type of video.This camera is good even for low light photography, read at night, offering great results. This photo is made almost in the dark, with light that is on the street at 21:45 Spanish time in a portal in the dark.The integrated Gallery has a simple interface showing the different images and videos in full screen according to the folder where they are stored. It also integrated a complete image editor from which you can adjust levels, add filters, cropping, apply effects, improve sharpness and endless possibilities.As an extra interesting we have thephone managerthat allows us to optimize our terminal easily doing a little analysis of the same.It serves as the Hub of other small applications that we will be discussing below. The opinion of EngadgetOnce thoroughly tested the terminal and seen what is able to offer both in terms of hardware and software capabilities that it brings series we can positively value thenew Smartphone from Huawei.Ascend P7 is a compact and lightweight to be 5 inch terminal, thank, that stands at a high, medium-high range specifications and performance, but without to stop them from range.It is clear thatHuaweihas sought to launch a terminal that offers a great balance between design, performance, price and is that 420-450 euros announced in its presentation (already we have seen via Amazon direct fromHuaweito 363 euros) that will have price when you arrive at the market - notably prices of stop the current rangeThe photographic section is something just for the high range that seems to have taken a step forward reaching sensors 16 and 20 Mpx with new features such as selective approach. However the front camera esutpenda reinforces this section.We are talking about a terminal 4 G capable of moving any current application with ease and fight with dignity when we speak of very demanding games, although there are some aspect like e.g. the autonomy that still resists it even with all the care in the management of the same.
