WATCH: Hands on with the Huawei Ascend Mate 7

Android, CES 2015, Mobile phones

Holly from Shiny Shiny has been checking out Huawei’s latest phablet.

Whilst not brand new, it is still worth a look. The 6″ full HD screen is powered by a Quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A15 & quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, and it comes with a 13MP rear camera, and 5MP secondary camera.

As Holly points out in the video, perhaps the most interesting feature is the finger print sensor – which doesn’t need the screen to be activated to work, and there’s in fact a sensor to detect your finger approaching – so you can unlock your phone in seconds, just by touching the sensor. Brilliant.

Holly also tries to get to grips with the nose slenderiser found on the camera – which is just as bizarre as when we tried it when reviewing the Ascend P7.
