With the P7, Huawei has crafted a phone that defies its modest price tag. It may not be as powerful as other flagships, but it's better than other handsets that cost about the same.

The new Huawei Ascend P7 is in the house! Huawei's flagship for 2014 was announced in May in Paris and we've been eagerly waiting for this to land at TechView HQ – it arrived a couple of weeks ago and ahead of our full review next week, we're bringing...

Although the Ascend P7 is certainly skinny and not too expensive, its unimpressive power and sometimes awkward interface makes it an acceptable -- albeit uninspiring choice. If you can find the P7 on a subsidised contract at a good price then it's worth...

The Huawei Ascend P7 is a phone I would use every day if the software experience was where you'd expect it to be. Whether it's for lack of optimization for the in-house chips powering the phone or something else is irrelevant. It completely spoils the...

The Huawei Ascend P7 is many things, but market-leading flagship it is not. It’s front-facing camera may be revolutionary, but the rest of it is so-so and ho-hum. Its excellent aesthetics are undone by an unrealistic price-tag. Huawei could have done...

7.5 The Huawei Ascend P7 is the best phone Huawei has made, but falls short of really differentiating itself from the titans of the smartphone game. A great front facing camera compliments a decent rear facing shooter, and an accessible software...

In my opinion this is a really solid offering from Huawei, the Ascend P7's exterior design is, quite simply, a work of art, and schools much of the competition in how to make a phone with a premium look and feel. On top of that, Huawei has managed to...

When the Huawei Ascend P6 launched last spring, it turned heads. First, because the design seemed at first glance entirely derived from the iPhone, though as you looked down at the bottom end there was a different styling at play. Now, the Huawei Ascend...

The Huawei Ascend P7 is a bold phone, and the most expensive-looking one the company has made to date. It has a good camera and a fairly good screen, but performance issues and software quirks mean it’s not quite up there with the best.

The Huawei Ascend P7 is great value for money, offering users quad-core performance and an above-average rear camera. However, it is let down by pointless software additions that hamper, rather than aid, its user...

Huawei has produced a stunning smartphone in the Ascend P7 and this is couple with good value for money with that non-flagship price tag. There's some decent hardware on offer here, particularly the camera but the P7 is let down by software performance issues.

For that money the P7 offers plenty of phone for the cash and as our week with the phone has progressed we've come to appreciate much of what it offers. We'd just like a better battery life to crush its rivals and then we'd happily pocket the change.

That could prove to be the strategy that ensures that when the Ascend P8, P9 and P10 launch at some point in the future, they are met with progressively less scepticism and more anticipation.

Still set on cracking the smartphone market, Huawei has introduced the Ascend P7 at a launch event in Paris. We jumped on the Eurostar in order to spend some time with the new handset so here's our Huawei Ascend P7 hands-on review. Read : The 24 best...

First impressions of the P7 are good: at 6.5mm it's extremely thin, although not quite as slim as its predecessor , making the five inch screen somehow seem even larger than it is.That crisp screen reaches to within three millimetres of the edge of the...

Chinese manufacturer Huawei is an emerging superpower in the smartphone market, quietly becoming the world's third biggest handset maker over the past 12 months. Strong brand awareness on its home turf has helped the firm gain ground on Apple and...

Huawei has made a decent smartphone in the Ascend P7. It's a considerable step up from the earlier P6 model thanks to a larger scale 1080p screen and a design that avoids treading into the "oversized" category. Is it enough to keep the other...

I find that pretty admirable, and even though not all of the features quite hit the spot, there's a lot to like about the new Huawei flagship. What the company - and the Ascend P7 specifically - needs now is for a US carrier to take a chance on it for their shelves.
