Mentioned Huawei Mate series models, Huawei's product line positioning familiar to consumers must be very familiar with. From the launch of the first generation of Huawei Mate began last year, it is the image of the mobile phone giant screen to show people. Whether or Huawei Huawei Mate Mate2 , have continued the 6.1 inches of the giant screen design, and later launched the Huawei version Mate2 4G added support for TD-LTE network, making it more widely applied.
Early last month, Yang Zhe, vice president of Huawei's terminal in China Ministry issued a notice on its map Sina Weibo, the picture is a significant number "7" has sparked speculation of this new machine. The author was based on the characteristics of its big screen guess it might be Huawei Mate7, although it would appear there has been a large jump Huawei (across from Mate2 directly to Mate7) in naming models, but this is not without precedent. Huawei recently released six is from the glory glory 3 4,5 skip come across, and later confirmed by the results of the author's judgment.
Now, this new Huawei Mate7 has come Zhongguancun online mobile phone division, today we will have this Huawei Mate series' third as "conduct some comprehensive evaluation.
The Huawei we received Mate7 golden body, the upper and lower sides of the fuselage, border and back have adopted the golden painting, the whole shell is made of aluminum metal. The feel, especially metallic border, while the back due to the addition of the coating while showing another textured, non-slip and anti-fingerprint effect of good performance.

Huawei ascend Mate 7 body size of 157 * 81 * 7.9mm, a 6-inch giant screen smart phone can have the body thickness of 7.9mm it is not easy, the border back in the fuselage have cutting-edge design, even more visually thin, but also to provide a good grip feel. Huawei ascend Mate 7 the button layout is not too special, right side arranged a power button and volume keys, power key application of the concentric design, will not cause confusion with the volume key visual. As a unibody design, SIM card slot is located on the left side of the fuselage frame, you need to take the card with pin open. Card types supported Micro SIM / Nano SIM two specifications, networking supports TD-LTE, TD-SCDMA , WCDMA and GSM (WCDMA only apply to international roaming occasions). In addition, Huawei agreed non-operating Mate7 plate (generic version) can support both TD-LTE and FDD-LTE network for users to switch is very convenient.
In weak signal conditions, Huawei ascend Mate 7 performed well. The reason is that Huawei ascend Mate 7 designed an LTE antenna switching technology, which has two antennas that can be done and can do transmit receive switch at any time. LTE handset diversity antenna is always open, intelligent detection and determine which better antenna performance. When one of the antenna signal is not good, it will automatically switch to a better antenna operation, this process does not create a successful power and other issues.
For consumers, the main antenna switching technology to solve the signal when holding the phone to bring influence. Assuming the upper grip the phone, then the following antenna that automatically switches to a working state, to avoid the problem of dropped cell phone. In addition, Huawei and Huawei Glory 6 Mate7 Like Support Cat6 LTE standard network conditions to support the case can reach a rate of 300Mbps.
Virtual buttons redesigned icons
Body thickness 7.9mm
Huawei ascend Mate 7 screen size of 6 inches, the resolution did not follow up on this year's flagship machine 2K level, still maintain the level of 1920 * 1080, but even so the screen display has a very delicate, very difficult to find under normal viewing distance pixels particles. It is worth mentioning that Huawei ascend Mate 7 screen accounted for a staggering 83 percent, the border width of only 2.9mm. In addition to this screen is Huawei's highest JDI exclusive custom product specifications, in the common market with IPS screen regardless of the cost of goods belonging to the pursuit of perfection to make, has been further optimize the overall performance.

A 13 million pixel camera
Fuselage came back we found a little shadow of HTC Huawei ascend Mate 7 body. Three-stage back design makes the overall design of the center of gravity back to maintain balance, rear camera back to 13 million pixels, but not with this application rate higher color temperature flash. Huawei ascend Mate 7 below the camera fingerprint region, and HTC One max position somewhat similar.
In mid-month, Huawei ascend Mate 7 announced a new Android new version of the customization system EMUI 3.0, edit Zhongguancun Online Mobile Channels are also eligible to get a closed beta before its release in advance to experience this city in EMUI version 2.3 has done a great foundation modify the scope of the product.
Huawei ascend Mate 7 Mate7 will be the first release that is equipped EMUI 3.0 system products. With more excellent quality hardware, users will get a better user experience based on the original. Here we have several ways to feel combined with Mate7 depth EMUI 3.0.
Huawei Mate7 unlock screen
Pull-down notification bar + function switch
Enter from the moment the lock screen lit screen, we can feel EMUI 3.0 system concise design. For example, is filled with the same range of children's literary magazine lock screen, EMUI 3.0 application canceled the application name of the shortcut bar icon pulled from the bottom of the bottom.
Standby screen / daemon Clear
And after unlocking the screen to enter the main interface, including from the top of the drop-down notification, switch panel and application admin interface has done a flattening process, and the contents of the notification bar is also in accordance with the time line of information sorted treatment, not again like the original so messy.
In addition to the main frame of the UI system, EMUI 3.0 are also pre-installed in the system according to the design of the whole system, the interface language redraw these simple lines, simple graphics, and configuration of the application interface is more conducive to simple color presentation of content, Let the content again dominate.
In addition to change the UI to turn over a camel outside the EMUI 3.0 Huawei also added some features. "Kinship care" is one of them, its essence is remote assistance service. User accepts the invitation by the call, you can let the other side control in their hands the phone.
Can be remotely functional family care assistance services
For less understood smartphone products for parents and elders, "family care" function is actually EMUI 3.0 of a very human performance. It also can operate the phone's functions guidelines, Huawei for the initial contact with the user of this product is very thoughtful consideration.
Life Yellow Pages
switch back and forth in order to reduce the user dialing, contacts, information on these three between these three Huawei EMUI 3.0 feature set on an application, but also provides a convenient service to the Yellow Pages of the user's life. And these are EMUI 2.3 version does not have.
Implantable contact list called "Life Service" Yellow Pages Application
in addition to these, EMUI 3.0 also joined the lazy mode, except with the phone dial pad will tilt changes, also joined the two-dimensional code business card scan code function. Compared to conventional oral card numbers or practices on the exchange, the degree of accuracy and convenience should be higher.
After the open one-handed operation mode will be shifted to the phone keypad module tilt direction
Huawei ascend Mate 7 joined the push fingerprint sensor, which is the first in the Android system using fingerprint sensor push handset manufacturers. Compared progressive scan sensor, the former identification faster and took the phone to complete the unlock process.
Without sliding, push to enter the fingerprint information
Fingerprints can also be used to pay for purchases
Measured successful payment
This set of standards for security issues. Huawei said it provides a chip-level security solutions: fingerprint information management, encryption, authentication, stored procedures are run in the chip TrustZone security OS, third-party applications can not access this area.
Because all of the fingerprint verification of information, through the local hardware security chip in the phone OS carried out. So paying the principal aspects of the work is complete matching treasure Alipay account and terminal data, will not come into contact with the identification data stored in the chip.
Not long ago I had the glory of Huawei camera features 6 conducted evaluation, really making proofs (especially night proofs) low noise so I was very surprised. The Huawei Mate7 core components in the camera is also equipped with 2014 in the number of high-end smartphones "standard" Sony Exmor RS IMX214 sensor
Sony IMX214 and IMX135 parameters compared (images from Sony's official website)
Sony Exmor RS IMX214 sensor area of 1 / 3.06 inches, 13.13 million effective pixels, the unit pixel area of 1.12μm. Compared to last year's smash hit Sony IMX135, Sony IMX214 appropriate to reduce the distance between the micro-lens and the photosensitive diodes, making IMX214 with higher light collection efficiency, with better low-light shooting. Also in the video shooting IMX214 obvious advantages described, 4K resolution support 30 per second video capture, and 1080p full HD video recording also by 30 IMX135 frames per second to 60 frames per second.
