One more close up of the Huawei Ascend P7 leaks, revealing its thin design
Besides the LG G3, the Huawei Ascend P7 has been the most heavily leaked handset over the last few weeks. The Chinese manufacturer's next flagship device is expected to get a big send off on May 7th in Paris. The specs of the device are just about what you would expect from a 2014 high-end model, although a case could be made for 3GB of RAM instead of the 2GB that the phone comes with. And perhaps the 2460mAh battery could have been a higher-capacity cell.

Why nit-pick? Because in a crowded market like this, it is getting harder and harder to stand out. Consumers these days are jaded, which leads manufacturers to try other means to achieve some sort of differentiation that can be used to hook buyers. If the specs can't do it, you go to design. And this is where the Huawei Ascend P7 comes in.

With the handset measuring just 6.18mm thick, the Huawei Ascend P7 is more than 1.5mm thinner than the Apple iPhone 5s. And you can check this out thanks to the leaked close-up of the phone, that was tweeted by master leaker evleaks. Judge for yourself just how thin the handset looks, by viewing the picture below.

This could turn out to be a very nice phone. I would hope for stock Android though...

I don't understand why all companies can't just use stock Android for their phones. Everyone usually dislikes the skins and bloatware anyway...

Unfortunately many people actually like the skins on their phone. A lot of people I know have a Samsung or HTC device and they chose it because of the looks of it, in fact many hate my phone because it's so bare bones in their eyes and in their opinion ugly (I'm running CyanogenMod 11). So from my experience it's quite the opposite.. *sigh*

Soon as nexus became available in my country, skins became a phone cancer to avoid.

It seems like they are using a lot of Apple design language. If they want to make the phone more like the upcoming iPhone 6, though, they should cut the RAM back even further, to 1GB.

Faster at what? Some meaningless microbenchmark that fits into the meager RAM that Apple provides and runs fast because the screen resolution is so low? Meanwhile, in the real world, there are many thousands of complaints regarding app reloading, web page reloading, crashes, weird behavior, all because the iPhone has too little memory. Having used an iPhone, I would not go back. The camera is speedy and decent, the audio output is generally high quality. But for everything else, the iPhone is terrible. Some of this is due to the small screen, some of this is due to the Fisher Price mentality of iOS, and some of this is due to the insane greed of Apple (i.e. no indicator LED, only 1GB RAM, etc).

Also most benchmarks show the 801 & 800 is faster than the A7 as well anyway And you can see the 801 & 800 is faster than the A7 in real usage, especially app opening speed

Lol. It is not faster at all .. it jusst seems to be faster because: 1. Its just our mind set that android us slower than ios 2. Iphone has much much lower screen res. 3. It doesnt do ANY type of multitasking And even after low res and no multitasking, it crashes .. so yeah basically iphone is faster just because of our mind set. :)

where my fanboys at ? stop the fanboy wars please, it really boils down to what you like more in the end! there are faster phones than iphone yes, but iphone has its strights and weaknesses as every other phone as well. re the skins, i hardly doubt people like the TW or COS or any other skin as much as stock skins, what i think is that people just don't know, don't care or have not used anything else (referring to stock android). Yes there are some cool things in all of the skins, but mostly people hate the bloatware this days, as i do. for example i jumped off TW on my Note 3 just because i hated how slow it makes my phone, and the restriction on basic apps as google now etc. now using the CM11 m6 and i luv it (for now;)
