It's a bit of a myth actually, that Huawei are not one of the big boys - they are in fact the largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment in the world, and certainly one of the largest mobile phone manufacturers in their Chinese homeland.

It's just that they are not yet so well known over here in Blighty, but that is changing. In fact you would do well not to dismiss the Huawei Ascend P7 too readily. It's predecessor, the Ascend P6, was superb despite in fact being even thinner!

Glass and metal marvel

The 6.5mm slimline case is even more remarkable given that it has smooth glass panels front and back, sandwiching a beautiful aluminium frame, reminiscent of the Sony Xperia Z2. You can actually luxuriate in the metal too because it shines like expensive metal should - no dull sheen here like the HTC One M8.

Premium 5 inch HD screen

The screen needs to match the first impression offered to you by the premium looks of the Ascend P7 and it doesn't disappoint. Measuring 5 inches corner to corner, and sporting a Full HD 1080p IPS LCD screen with a stunning resolution of 441 pixels per inch, this is premium in every sense of the word.

Coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra strength and durability, the 1080 x 1920 pixel screen is one of the best we have seen. Colours and bright and punchy, while the IPS format means that you will be able to view the screen a lot more easily in bright sunlight and at wide angles.

Fully featured 13 MP camera

No corners have been cut with the excellent 13 megapixel camera producing crisp and clear shots. Cameras haven't always been Huawei's strong point but you will have no complaints here.

Every conceivable feature is included, from Geotagging, auto focus and touch to focus, to HDR and panoramic modes as well as face and smile detection, and an LED flash. Full HD 1080p video recording is available and while Nokia are making a bug fuss about their 5 MP front facing "selfie" camera, Huawei give you a full 8 megapixels.

Very strong feature set

The list of features goes on and on with Dolby Digital Plus sound enhancement, dual band Wi-Fi for increased download speeds, 4G LTE network capability, Wi-Fi direct, assisted GPS, DLNA and NFC. Both movie and music players play just about every popular file type available, including XviD and Flac.

Sound quality is surprisingly good too from the tiny speaker and stereo Bluetooth allows you to listen to that Dolby enhanced sound through a cordless headset or you can use the 3.5mm headphone jack to attach your favourite set of headphones. If you tire of your own music there is an stereo FM radio on board too.

Impressive call quality

Call quality is superb too, with a dedicated microphone enabling active noise cancellation which cuts out background noise during your calls, and it works particularly well on the Ascend P7 and as usual with the latest Android handsets you get Voice dialling, voice commands and Google Talk.

Plenty of power

The latest version of Android, v4.4.2 KitKat, is smoothly run by a powerful 1.8 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM memory, and although we spotted one or two reviews that claimed the phone was a little laggy at times we found no problems at all. Any such issues will have been corrected by software updates.

There are plenty of storage options too. The 16GB of onboard storage space can be easily added to via the microSD card slot which accepts memory cards right up to 64GB.

Our summary

It's easy to see why Huawei are the most popular manufacturers in China, and surprising that they are not quite yet so well favoured over here. The Huawei Ascend P7 is simply stunning in every respect from design to performance, and at a price that puts the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 6 to shame. It's impossible to fault in any way, we dare you to be brave and take a closer look - you will not be disappointed.
