The P7 measures 139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5mm thus it is a bit thicker and taller and even broader than the P6 which is quite obvious as the new handset has a bigger display. Besides, the Ascend P7’s display as well as rear panel has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
Ascend P7 is powered by a 2,500mAh Li-Po battery which claims to provide 14 hours of talk time. It has a 13 megapixel rear camera with Sony BSI sensor and f/2.0 aperture. For selfie lovers it has an 8 megapixel front camera with BSI sensor and 5-pieces lens. For connectivity, the Ascend P7 has LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11n, microUSB 2.0 and NFC.
It seems that off late Huawei has a new strategy in place for Indian market where in they want to launch smartphones and tablets at regular interval and that too in different price points. Just a few weeks back Huawei had launched two smartphones – Honor 6 and Honor Holly, and two tablets – Honor X1 and Honor T1. Interestingly all the four devices are available exclusively on Flipkart.
Among all the devices launched Honor 6 was the best of the lot. It comes with a 5 inch IPS display, sporting full HD resolution. It measures 139.6 x 69.7 x 7.5 mm and weighs just 130 grams.
The Honor 6 has Android 4.4.2 Android operating system but it uses the Huawei Emotion 2.3 UI which has a completely different look than the native Android UI. It has the HiSilicon Kirin 920 chipset that comprises an octa core processor, Mali T628 MP6 GPU and 3 GB RAM – powerful enough to run high end games as well as for multitasking.
The phone comes in 16 and 32 GB storage versions and has a micro SD card slot that can accommodate a 64 GB card. There is a 13 megapixel auto focus camera and two LED flash lights in the rear panel in the Honor 6 while a 5 megapixel camera is in its front.
The Honor 6 has two SIM slots and is compatible with 4G network. Other than that, the Honor 6 has Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, WiFi with Hotspot feature, DLNA, and a micro USB 2.0 port. It has a 3100 mAh Li-Po battery. Despite such high end features, Huawei has shrewdly priced it at just Rs 19,999.
