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.

checkmymike, 26 Jan 2015Hi tcool. Thats strange. I am not using the smart cover and the fingerprint sensor is working ... moreYes I tried to use the fingerprint without the smart cover but I have to press it hard to work.
With the smart cover on, slight press will open the screen.
I want to use it without the smart cover because it shows the real premium body without the cover. Especially the gold color.

Never heard of getting heated/hot like samsung/sony or lg devices, and have long life than other brands

It cannot recognize fingerprint without the smart cover.
If I remove the smart cover, I cannot unlock it with my fingerprint.
I tried to register new fingerprint without the smart cover but it just won't respond.
Vind, 24 Jan 2015Bro, do you mind share which is better, Mate 7 or LG G3?
I mean Mate 7 Gold version with 3GB ... moreTo be honest it is difficult cause both phones are excellent. I do not have experience with the 3GB Korean models but mine was the 2GB kind and did suffer from some stuttering in the UI here and there. Battery life was good but not as good as the Mate7. The QHD screen to me seems like a gimmick (difference between the6" FHD and 5.5" QHD is negligible).
It comes down to price and another important thing is availability of service, if there are no Huawei service centers nearby keep that in mind if anything should go wrong (unlikely). But truly a hard choice, if between S5 and Mate7 it would be easy but G3 is a great phone, still leaning to Mate7 though!
j.lo, 24 Jan 2015Is the back cover of huawei mate 7 also metallic?please do answer me coz my daughter wants ful... moreno it dosent come with metallic cover. File cover in the box is made of plastic and leather but quality is 8/10.
