9 cores ... for when 8 cores isn't enough ...



The 9th core is when the phone is in standby, keeps the sensors on and prolongs battery.
Best fingerprint sensor in any phone btw, one touch and your phone is unlocked

Huawei + fingerprint sensor? I take it you need to enroll all 10 "just in case"? (_;)

Made me lol, it can only enroll 5 though
Each finger can open seperate apps or be used to lock/hide certain folders, or just open guest mode

Sorry for noob question but how does warranty work when purchasing from Amazon Italy or Germany?

I suppose that if you're mugged for this phone, you're going to have to lose one hand (or both if the mugger doesn't know which hand you use).

Still got to be LG G3

Well this is Amazon Warehouse so 30 days warranty. Returns I have never tried but just looking appear to be free (print label as per normal), but dont qoute me on that!

These are likely customer returns or damaged box items, only a few days old at most (in my opinion of course!)

Very rarely will you have a problem with Huawei, they are the 3rd largest mobile phone maker in the world afterall

Thanks for that mate. How would it work if I purchased a new phone from these European Amazon sites? Would the manufacturer stand by the warranty here in the UK?

Just deal with Amazon directly, they will honour the warranty

Why, it's not very good.

mynameisthehulk

Why, it's not very good.

It's got higher specifications across the board, and it's a known brand, and second hand prices are stable, don't get me wrong I think this is a good phone, but it's too expensive for what it is

Specs do not equal a great phone though. 2K screen takes up CPU and GPU power, and drains the battery FAST.

I owned one for 8 months. Its got a lovely crisp sharp screen, really amazing. The battery life did improve with Lollipop, however it was so laggy as to become borderline unusable. When I turned it on again today (Factory reset because I have sold it) I immediately missed that fantastic screen, but then I tried to use it and was reminded why I have moved on.

Speaking as an lg g3 owner, I totally agree with you! In fact, have you owned both? Because if you have and the lg is better, that would mean this phone is not great at all; so I would be very interested if anyone has a direct comparison?

The lg g3 (imho) is massively over-hyped. Don't get me wrong, the screen is gorgeous, but the rest of it is dire! The built in keyboard was all but unusable, it is very laggy indeed and the battery life is shocking! The price the lg is now (290ish) is still too much. However, it did make me appreciate my s4 a lot more! Even more frustrating is the fact that the market is flooded with them so they don't sell at a good price 2nd hand.....too many and new ones for not much more! I really like the look of the Huawei though!

Owners Impressions thread, not really a direct G3 comparison, I can compare it to an S5 once my M7 arrives tomorrow though.
forum.xda-developers.com/mat…076

This covers the G3 and Mate 7 as well as other 5.5"+ phones
androidauthority.com/sup…02/

tldr; "If you pressed me for a decision: the Note 4 redefines the high-end again and is clearly the best you can buy, but the Ascend Mate 7 is worthy of a very honourable mention due to its tremendous value. "

Excellent Phone and price - Not sure why the heat is so low.

Because its not Samsung etc, some people are wary of ordering from Amazon Europe as well.

Almost all gone, good deal.

Now only £248.51, price keeps dropping so keep checking, an absolute steal at this price, I paid £30 more a few days ago for the same thing

Good for cold winters too.

Its just a little too big. had a 6" phone and almost always need two hands to operate. can get annoying after a while.
Good for some though

So it has arrived, is absolutely mint, like new with rear sticker still on as well.
Initial impressions are really good, experience is as smooth as my Z2 was.
The fingerprint scanner is out of this world as well!.

you must have had a faulty one then, mine was no problem ever, just poor battery life but a spare battery sorted that out, I have a note 4 now the screen is on a par with the g3

Couple of comments without trying to sound cynical...
If it had just arrived as you stated, why do the photos have a date of 9th March 2015?
Also, how did you manage to get a silver one?
The only Excellent Condition ones on your link are black?

I ordered silver before I saw the black price
I paid £280 delivered for Silver, heres the link
amazon.it/gp/…sed
Black is £30 cheaper.

The camera is an old one I dug out, my main camera is my phone.
I need it to do some videos on the Mate 7. Date must be wrong

Track this in UPS and you will see!!!

I believe you
I did say I wasn't trying to sound cynical....
Thanks for replying.
I did order a black one last night anyway so hopefully it will be in as good condition as yours!
Out of interest, have you purchased a bumper case or anything for yours?

No case at all, just a glass screen protector
ebay.co.uk/itm…879

Be careful when using it one handed as the aluminum back can be slippy!

Dont like to add extra thickness to an already BIG phone.

You wont be sorry you bought it, I will leave a vid or 2 here later

The glass protector I linked you to is excellent!
Well worth picking 1 up, maybe 2 just incase

Im moving away from my Huawei X1 Mediapad 7 incher (love it - but keeps dropping calls). Got the size Mate 7 and its still has the back wrapping on it. I applied the Mocolo screen protector today and for a second thought it was causing the Mate 7 to not respond correctly - factory defaulted it and it was all good again.

DJJINX1 - can you confirm if on your Mate 7 when you change the default dark brown theme to different one, that after unlocking the screen your first touch is not recognised. I think its a bug. Sticking with dark theme till work out whats wrong.

First touch is recognized for me as far as I can see?
I have tried a few themes!
Are you on latest firmware?
Do you mess in Xposed or change DPI?

Build Number = MT7-L09V100R001C00B137SP03
No root or DPI settings changed.

Original Poster

Not sure what to say, mine is all fine.

Anyone tried installing the custom Rom on xda?

Looks nice, I am now rooted with custom recovery after unlocking the boot loader.

The stock Rom must be great as I have usually flashed something by now!!

I hope you like it!!
Detailed impressions please!
Remember to turn off smart battery saver in settings for optimum performance, battery life is good without it

Theres actually a few cool things about EMUI to me.
The fingerprint scanner is one, while not 100% accuracy its alot easier than a pin all the time especially with a phone this big! Also cool little tips like double tap vol down button will take a fast picture, turn screen on and open camera app
