The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Dual can currently probably buy only as an import. Whether the dual SIM smartphone in the test is later officially marketed in Germany, is open. We had the opportunity to test the model extensively. Anyone ever even could make an impression of the single-SIM version: Besides the possibility of a second SIM insert, everything is almost identical. Very good 6.0 inch display , faster processor , greataluminum -Body. Those who like to use very much screen space, will find one of the best smartphones of its kind – because of import, however, depending on the selection of a fairly high price.

The Mate 7 is also in the dual-SIM version of Android 4.4 , not on an Android version 5.Given the usual first-class facilities in terms of computing power and memory remarkably.However, the coming OS not “pure”, but is the usual Huawei user interface delivered. This offers various optical variants, so you can put together the look individually. In the test, this worked UI very fluid and was easy to operate.
Who be Ascend Mate wants to unlock Dual 7, can for the fingerprint sensor to use on the back. Whether this is better than a sensor directly in the on / off button is a matter of taste.The sensor is housed below the 13-megapixel camera and can basically reach. Overall, the entire smartphone is hardly designed for one-hand operation.
- The box comes very noble designed therefore – with gold print on a black background. And the actual smartphone acts with its aluminum body , golden color – in our test device – and the side almost rimless display before the actual Mate 7 Dual test very impressive. Unlike the cheaper Honor models like the Honor 7 Dual are Huawei dual SIM phones the Ascend series clearly aimed at high end.
- Nevertheless, the delivery does not present any surprises. If you have taken out mobile phone and the intermediate cover, you will find “only” a USB charging cable , AC adapter and headphones .
Dual SIM cards
Anyone wishing to use two SIM cards in the same phone, can at this Ascend Mate 7 version of Huawei micro SIM and a nano-SIM insert.However, SIM 2 is in a so-called hybrid-slotinserted. This is therefore an alternative for amicroSD memory card used.
Both simultaneously – second SIM and microSD card – is not possible. Apparently Huawei want to save the expense, the case for change. Because in this XXL Phone would loose space for another slot have been, which could then be used exclusively for another SIM card. The operation, however, was easily the Ascend Mate 7 Dual Test.
Both slots are accessible from the outside and are located – viewed from the front – on the upper left frame. To the card holder to unlock, you need a pointed object, which is however included.
The main SIM works classic, as one is used by all mobile phones. The “mix-slot” is but also to use easily. In the tray for this hybrid slot a special recess is milled into which you insert the nano SIM. This is also clearly on the tray printed. (See photo.) Then push the holder including card into the phone casing, finished.
For data backup, you can change the SIM 2 to a memory card in between without problems. In phone off, of course. Then switch back, you’ve got the dual SIM function. Only those who need continues to use more directly in the device, might be unhappy here.Otherwise, can compensate the lack of separate space due to internal GB and cloud options.
A final evaluation of all notes will follow in the next few days, together with further details of our multi-week test. However, now clear that the Mate 7 is one in comparison to the previous phones the upper class and the stuff for the Top 10 has.
