Huawei’s Ascend P7 costs too much at Rs 24799 in India

Huawei has officially introduced its Ascend P7 smartphone in India which was launched back in May carrying flagship status. The device is quite an affordable release as it offers a good dose of hardware for Rs 24799, but it isn’t exactly the best option on the market.

For a little lesser price, you could get the beefier OnePlus One which is selling for Rs 21999 on invite-basis or the gorgeous Lenovo Vibe X2 that’s available for around Rs 20000. Then there’s the company’s very own Honor 6 flagship that’s not only cheaper, but also offers much better specifications.

Nevertheless, the Huawei Ascend P7 is still a great smartphone and it’s quite the looker as well. It features a glass rear panel which has a 7-layer micro-pattern design with a spun texture. The phone is very slim at 6.5mm and it has a metal unibody construction.

Back in August, the company launched an enhanced version of the handset with a sapphire glass display for extra durability. The screen is a 5-inch 1920 x 1080p panel and it’s accompanied by an 8MP camera on the front. And on the rear, there’s a 13MP shooter with LED flash. The phone is powered by a 1.8GHz quad core Hi-Silicon Kirin 910T processor.
