The teaser pic on the website is wrong, showing Alpha and Z3 Compact instead.

the Samsung note series is pretty much on a league of its own.

Note 4 is the absolute winner... Even note 3 can beat Ascend mate 7

Huawei needs to work on improving battery life. The Mate 7's result is pretty bad considering the capacity.

In my opinion, the Huawei looks like a cheap knock off. I still dont get the whole "its made from aluminum so its premium" fad

I think any honest and objective person can see how clearly the Note 4 destroys the rest. But if you're a simpleton, it probably won't matter what phone you have.

I think both phone is quite smilier, now a better options if u don't like Samasung. Huawei is one of also good hardware.

Just purchased the gold edition 3GB RAM/ 32 GB Storage version of the Mate 7. It's running Android 4.4.2. Expected a lot from the device but i've still being pretty surprised by the smooth UI, usable and intuitive functionality and classy finish. Almost want to bring it out of its case everytime. Can't bear to hide the beauty. The interface seems like Lollipop's precursor. I also currently use a HTC OneMax, so i evidently like well designed phones. Had been waiting for a sequel to the OneMax but HTC hasn't been forthcoming. I also love screen real estate. 5.5 inches is as low as i'd go right now. I'm 6'2 and have fairly large hands. Got the Desire 816 for my wife last year and she loves it. I like it too, but glossy plastic isn't my thing. I was also one of those who initially felt the Mate 7 was a ripoff of the OneMax. But hello, it's that and more. It mixes a little bit of IOS in the UI and Fingerprint Scanner, HTC in the back and Asus in the finish. Love it. Can't stop staring at it
