I love this phone. It fits my hands perfectly it isn't too big or bulky. The design is minimal in side screen making it seem small than other phones!
kalibaba, 30 Jan 2015Hello, Is with much first hand experience that I want to disagree with you on your view abo... moreThank you! I totally agree with all you said. Real life usage is all that matters not paper scores. Fact remains that a lot of OEM'S cheat those benchmarks to get high scores but fail to perform with usage.
Zenfone 5 User, 31 Jan 2015Hi. Bro, how much is huawei ascend mate7 selling in your country? which version did you get go... more32GB @ 1999 Saudi Riyals or $532.
I am not using its back camera, no idea about that.
I tried the front camera but I found the front camera of my Mediapad X1 is better.
No heating issue, battery lasts for almost two days with moderate use.
Signal is strong even inside the building.
No signal drops, always stable.
No issue with WiFi.
Tcool, 31 Jan 2015Appreciate for waving that white flag, fanboy!Hi.

[deleted post]It depends on the model.
16GB model is only single SIM.
32GB model is dual SIM and much better than Xperia Z2.

So I tried to debunk the cores gimmick by stating that the all mighty Tegra K1 only has 2 cores, but it runs game like a champ.
But you denied that. Then, I proceed to giving the proof that Tegra K1 is a much much more capable chipset than Kirin 925 despite having only 2 cores while the latter has 8 cores, by posting the their respective Basemark X scores.
HTC Nexus 9 comes into play because it has the 64-bit version of Tegra K1.
Of course, Z2 has a smaller battery, but it also has a smaller display resulting in better endurance rating than the Mate7. But to be fair, Mate7 scores better in web browsing and video playback times.
The Z2 also has front facing stereo speakers which is a big plus for gaming. Screen size is arguable. 5.2" screen is not bad for gaming.
"HiSilicon Kirin 925 is better than Tegra K1 no doubt about that!
Unless you can prove it fanboy!"
- I already proved it. Remember the Basemark X scores?
tl; dr: You're a blind Huawei fanboy. And I see my time being wasted here. I won't respond to any further arguments.

Are you dumb?

Is with much first hand experience that I want to disagree with you on your view about Kirin 925.
1. No heating problem
2. Faster than Tegra or snapdragon
3. Conserves power
I have used all of them, I've devices powered by each of them and Kirin 925 is best.
I compare devices side by side, not on paper.

Kirin 925 is better than Tegra K1? Wow, get your eyes checked, fanboy.
Basemark X (Mate7): 6501
Basemark X (HTC Nexus 9): 28244
I verily hope that you can see those numbers clearly...

Of course HiSilicon Kirin 925 is a lot better than Tegra K1.

Not sure if you're lying, or just plain dumb... The cores amount is one of the most useless gimmick in smartphone world. Ever heard of the 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 chipset? It only has 2 cores. Does Kirin 925 run better than Tegra K1? Hell no.
Plus, the Adreno 330 in the Z2 is a better performer than the Mali-T628 in Mate7.
I have Huawei Mate7 and the problem with me "is not opening the pdf file exceeding 300 KB on the corporate email (build exchange). Any body can help in this regard.

It will strain your eyes faster with 5.2" screen than with 6" screen when playing games.
Mate 7 is Octa core while Xperia Z2 is only Quad core, octa core can perform better in games.
Mate 7 has thinner body than Xperia Z2 which makes it more ergonomic to hold when playing games.

I agree, since the update the fingerprint reader is really good; fast and accurate. From here on, I would be *very* reluctant to buy a phone without a fingerprint reader. Just so good. Eventually, all phones will have one.
The 4100 mAh battery is a real workhorse, it just keeps going and going. Call quality is exceptionally good. The cameras are good and there's fast access to the cameras by simply double tapping the volume down button.
The 32GB version is described as "Amber Gold" but it's actually a very light gold. Still looks great though!
Very slight negative; I would of preferred the power button somewhere else, maybe lower or swapped places with the volume controls.
This is a really good phone and I'm more than happy with it.
