The Huawei Ascend P7 makes everyone want to be “thin, thin, thin”

With something this thin, built along a metal frame with Gorilla Glass on the front and back panel, Huawei was clearly aiming for that “supermodel” look, and that is the theme of this rather entertaining ad, a story from the perspective of a plastic surgeon.
The Ascend P7 is one of the lightest and thinnest 5-inch smartphones around. It is able to handle all the business, has a wide-angle 8MP front camera for selfies, and the aforementioned premium build quality. Huawei’s Emotion UI is quite distinct, highly functional, and we gave the phone high marks in our review.
So what does it take to be a supermodel nowadays? Listen to the doctors as they share the challenges and high-class problems that plastic surgeons endure. “Everyone wants that ‘P7 look,’” indeed, it is arguably “supermodel thin,” though with all that glass, we’ll withhold judgment on the “superhero tough” part.

Xperia buttons and overall looks (the back camera and the flash are in the exact same position as Xperia z1/z1c's. To be even more obvious of their design "inspiration" they should put an "H" letter near the camera (that comes after the "G" letter found on the mentioned Xperias back)

That kind of thinness is actually more of a negative IMO. A really thin smartphone like that is more difficult to hold and feel more fragile and flimsy. It would have been much better if for everyone if Huawei had added two millimeters to the thickness and in turn doubled the capacity of the battery. Motorola is going in a much better direction with the curves and thickness of the Moto E, G, and X...

have you ever held one?? huawei p6 was very thin, but the looks of it was stunningly elegant, and i held the device. it is still comfortable like the other phones with same dimensions i've held, in fact I like the feel of it. and talking about holding a device and complaining about It? i think you have obsessive compulsive disorder..

I always use a case so thin as possible is the best route. Slap an otterbox on this and it still looks good. Slap one on another flagship and they look like those Motorola and Nokia bricks but larger from yesteryear.

Overly thin phones = weaker components, poor/fragile build quality handling, and meek battery life

The technology advancements allow than and it's really elegant. Different people, different opinions. I hope you still enjoy your good old 1 inch thick smartphone. Just kidding. With high quality materials and good structural design the thin can be strong enough for normal use.

correction iHuany but who cares it's still beautiful... :) copying is not an issue for me, it's companies' problem. i would love to see them copying each other to make their phone as beautiful as possible and as powerful as possible, and grab a popcorn suing each other... :))))
