Huawei Ascend P7 priced at Php20,990, hands-on

Over at Rockwell Tent, Makati, Huawei has just launched their flagship phone, the Ascend P7 which packs a full HD display, the new quad-core Kirin CPU, a good pair of camera sensors and a very sleek, light and thin design.

The first thing I noticed handling the device is how light it is; I can’t fathom how Huawei has managed to pack all these specs and power into this thin body. In addition, the 5-inch display is very vibrant and bright as expected. One thing I’d like to note is how the device strikes me as if it’s an Xperia phone – with the boxy edges and the back design. Again, that’s actually a good thing as Huawei has pulled it off making it light and easy to manage.

The UI inside the phone is still a little cartoonish for my taste, but it works really well, even with the absence of the app drawer. Navigating through it was extremely fast and fluid with no slowdowns, and that has left us good impressions on what to expect from the new HiSilicon Kirin 910T CPU.

    Yung pangalan nya at price nya ang parang hindi equated sa user experience. Unlike yung mga premium brands like iphone, lgg3, htc1m8, z2, etc na willing kang magbayad ng mahal dahil may premium feel dahil sa brand. Dapat pantayan ng huawei ang pricing ng mi3.

    Huawei Ascend P7 or Sony Xperia T2 Ultra?

  6. Avatar for hanz hanz says:

    the only advantage of this phone compared to Xiaomi Mi3 is for having an LTE connectivity, epic fail for Huawei, the price of this phone considers too high the fact that it is a Chinese brand.

      Yes Huawei is a chinese brand brand but it is not a local company. ang ibig kong sabihin ay, hindi naman kasi local company ang huawei para magbigay ng mababang price sa kanilang phone unless kung it is just an entry level phone or budget phone.. Huawei ascend p7 is their flagship phone. kakumpetensya ng huawei SAMSUNG, SONY, LG, HTC. yung htc rin naman chinese company eh

    it seems @pipoy comments are deliberate. From those forgivable grammar flaws when he started to bombard this tech site then to this exaggerated and trying-hard statements.

    for the sake of yugatech, can we request to block any posts from this person?

    if he’s trying to be THE ABUZALZAL, well he’s miles away, wala siyang naco-contribute.

    and for HUAWEI ASCEND P7, too late. Mi products are already or coming to the country.

    epic fail.

    Naniwala naman kayo na hindi marunong mag english si pipoy. Nananadya lang yan, obvious naman na nag trip lang yan sa grammar nya.

    Bad move, Huawei. Regardless of your reputation, your brand still sounds like a cheap china gadget. Those uninformed will prefer other china gadgets with a lower price tag.
