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.

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.

Small disappointment in Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Dual Test: The second slot is available either for another SIM or microSD card.

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.

Huawei Mate 7 review: dual SIM slots

A tray for SIM1 in Micro-SIM format. The second for Nano-SIM or memory card. When Ascend Mate 7 you have to decide between extra memory and the second number.

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.
