The new Huawei Ascend 7 is a beauty outside but what’s it packing? Here’s what’s under that hood :
Screen and display: The Ascend P7 has a bigger 5 inch screen with 1080 x 1920 pixels, compared to the P6’s 720 x 1280 pixels 4.7 inch screen.
Weight and dimensions: Very light at 124 g, only 4 g heavier than the P6, and is 139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm, making it slightly longer, wider and thicker than the P6 with its 132.7 x 65.5 x 6.2 mm body.
CPU, OS and processor: Both the the Ascend P7 and P6 run on Android 4.4 (KitKat) but the P7 has a quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A9 processor, better than the P6’s 1.5GHz processor.
Storage: With P7 you get 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage, expandable to 64GB with a microSD card. The P6 is left in the trash here with its 8GB internal storage and no microSD slot.
Camera: The Ascend P7 has a 13MP rear camera (with LED flash and autofocus capabilities) and an 8MP front camera, perfect for video calls and selfies, an upgrade from the P6 with its 8MP rear camera and 5MP front one.
Colours: Both the Ascend P7 and P6 come in black, pink and white.
Battery: The P7 packs a 2500mAh battery, while the P6 has a 2000mAh. All I’m saying is Huawei needs to pay more attention to battery lives. You would probably get 2- 3 hours of use in both phones. Read more about the Ascend P7’s predecessor, the Ascend P6, here.
Price: The Ascend P7 is currently being sold by Zamtel for K2,999 while MTN is selling the P6 at K2950, according to their online shop today.
Conclusion: We recommend the phone entirely for selfie lovers. Others on the go who like to exhaust their phone battery by using all their apps may invest in a mobile power bank too if they decide to buy the P7.
