    Good day people,

    Since I am losing both hope and interest to get an invite anytime soon, I started to look for a possible alternative because my current phone is not going to last much longer. I stumbled upon an article about Huawei Honor 7 and the device looks sexy and decent too. Seems that it is going to be announced in EU on 27th of August. I wanted to ask if anyone actually had any hand-on experience with this device (Chinese members) and is there anything you could tell about it?

    From what I managed to find online it is the 5'2 version of Huawei Ascend Mate 7.

    I live in UK so there are no information about EU units yet, but there are a little bit on Chinese version. I added a few links to the first post.

    Please, do! I tried tweeting them but with no result! They will anounce everything on 27th of August but no dates are known just yet. I can't wait to long but if it starts rolling in early/mid September, that's what I am buying! Price seems to be pretty much the same as OP2 as well.

    Not a fan of the Fingerprint placement. Beautiful phone though :rolleyes:

    I think it might actually be even better, the only negative about the placement is that you couldn't activate it when it's lying down on the table or so! But when I take my Xperia which is the same size, that's where my finger exactly is, on the back of the phone!

    Given that I might be waiting until the op3 comes out for an invite for a 2...this might just do the job! Looks a very good phone!

    If it works as well, as my 18 month old Huawei Ascend Mate2, IT WILL BE A KILLER.
    This is a cheap phone. Snapdragon 400, 720p screen (6.1"), 2gb ram, expansion card, JB4.3 and an AWESOME 4,100mAH battery. It has been flawless since day 1.
    Huawei isn't known for being prompt with software updates. They skipped KK and just released LL5.1.1 in sort of a beta. I've got it since late June. Runs well, only bug I've had is if you switch launchers, it reverts back to the default on reboot...no biggie. I've had 3 "bug fix" updates, gets better with each one. Not bad for a $300.00 phone. (it's cheaper now). They've released a new one with a 6.8" screen, but it doesn't have the American LTE bands.

    It's not on their UK website yet, so no point of opening an account:)

    Do you think registering would change anything? I don't think they actually sell phones on their website, just redirect to website of carphonewarehouse and other distributors!
