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

Talk to the hand and go to your favorite phone page, fanboy!

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.
Hoawei technical staff given me three days to find the solution.

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.
hi .. please mention the model that you are using is it the 2gb RAM OR 3GB RAM model. I am confused with mate 7 16gb/2GB RAM and xperia z2 both are having the same price in my country. Please suggest me btwn the two. is the 2gb RAM sufficient for playing heavy games and multitasking. how much ram is eaten by the system itself apart from additional applications. please respond
Having this phone almost a month now, everything is great so far. Excellent battery life, sometimes lasts 3 days of my moderate use.
Regarding downsides, i have noticed that fingerprint sensor doesnt work that good when it's cold outside, and software can be better IMO, especially because I am coming from HTC sense. I am feeling like I miss things, but maybe it's just a fact that I am using different software. We will see about that one.
All in all it's a great phone, highly recommend to anyone that likes phablet sized phones. Cheers!
Bro i've experienced with that kind ... but for me when I put cover on .... my finger print did not work ... but when I used it alone ... it work great .... I updated via OTA and fixed it .... My mate is MT7-10 32 GB Amber Gold version .....
miongb, 27 Jan 2015Mne is working perfectly even without the smart cover.Just got it.
I wiped the fingerprint sensor with a piece of tissue and it works fine now with little or no effort at all!
It just need a little cleaning...
Thank goodness I can use it now without the smart cover to show off its beautiful finish.
mrpr, 26 Jan 2015Buy yourself a P6 and u will see what mean if phone gets hot. I tell u i have one ;)How dare you compare a 4100mAh battery with 2000mAh battery of P6!
Of course your P6 will heat up because its battery power is not enough to handle heavy apps.
