These Huawei Ascend Mate7 commercials pit the handset against the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5
Huawei recently released two new commercials that showcase its Ascend Mate7, and, in particular, its fingerprint sensor. As you may recall, Huawei stated from the very beginning that the fingerprint sensor of the Mate7 was faster than those offered by Apple, Samsung, or any other company.

The first commercial pits the Ascend Mate7 against a Samsung Galaxy S5, suggesting that Huawei’s fingerprint sensor (located on the back of the device) is easier to use than Samsung’s. Well, at least if you’re a werewolf.

The second commercial seemingly stars Superman, who can’t “switch identities” fast enough with the iPhone 6, but he can do it with the Ascend Mate7 - thanks to its fingerprint sensor that features a “visitor mode.”

Available to buy since September, the Huawei Ascend Mate7 passed the 1 million units sold mark in October. The handset runs Android KitKat, and comes with lots of high-end features, including a 6-inch 1080p IPS display, 3 GB of RAM, an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 925 processor, and a 4100 mAh battery.

This is out of the subject but i think quad hd (2k) is an overkill i prefer an hd screen over it with the same specs, 1080p should be the maximum for now, i want a blazing fast phone over a higher resolution, smartphone companies have to focus more on the performance and battery rather on screens, i cant even complain about my note 2's screen its gorgeous and i love it, like this comment if you prefer a better performance over a higher resolution.

I agree. However 720p on a 5.5" screen didn't look that great imo on the Note 2. But the 1080p screen on the Note 3 looked great and I couldn't complain about it. The 720p on the 2013 Moto X looked satisfactory, and the 1080p screen on my OnePlus One right now looks excellent. And I agree battery life and processor performance should trump all other specs right now.
