We've conducted a detailed review of the Ascend Mate7, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Ascend Mate7

Ascend Mate7's size

The Ascend Mate7 is 3.2 inches (81 mm) wide, 6.2 inches (157 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.9 mm) thick. The size makes it a bit difficult to use with one hand. In the case of the Ascend Mate7, it weighs about 185 oz (185 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Ascend Mate7, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Ascend Mate7

The processing power of the Ascend Mate7 is, at 1.8GHz+1.3GHz×8(OctaCore), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Ascend Mate7 has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Ascend Mate7 rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Ascend Mate7's storage capacity

The Ascend Mate7 has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Ascend Mate7 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Ascend Mate7's screen

The Ascend Mate7 has a 6 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Ascend Mate7 is very clear, so you'll likely have no complaints on that front. However, you should be cautious about viewing things in 4k definition.

The camera function of Ascend Mate7

The Ascend Mate7 has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Ascend Mate7 comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Ascend Mate7

The Ascend Mate7 has a battery with a quite large capacity of 4100 mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Ascend Mate7 is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

Overall assessment of Ascend Mate7

The Ascend Mate7 is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
