Huawei Ascend Mate 7, fingerprint scanner & 4100mAh battery

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

It looks like the Chinese company really worked round the clock on its current phablet to make sure that any loopholes that would invite any form of criticism are sealed. In terms of body, the excuses were stuck down by a hard aluminum casing which, besides providing solid protection also gives the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 a first-class look.

Huawei Ascend Y530 is a close sibling to the Ascend G510. With Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and an Adreno 302 processor onboard, it’s a slightly better performer.
