As a high-end device, the Huawei Ascend P7 doesn’t disappoint in terms of raw specs. It’s big display measures 5-inchs and touts a Full HD resolution and IPS technology. Coupled with an 8MP front shooter, the 13MP rear camera is powered by a 4th-gen Sony sensor with backside illumination. Huawei also tweaked the down volume button to give users a better chance of capturing the moment; just press it twice (even from a locked mode) and the camera app will launch in 1.2 seconds. Android 4.4 KitKat runs out of the box, but with the company’s Emotion UI 2.3 on top.
