Duel Huawei Ascend Mate 7 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung’s Galaxy Note has been champion in the category of large cell phones, but the question is whether a significantly cheaper can challenge the reigning champion.

Interface and input
The pen in the Note is a particularly interesting feature, but here we are looking at adaptations to the system, such as for simpler single-hand operating.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7
I Mate 7 contains several different themes that customize the backgrounds as well as icons for Android. Especially good work the fingerprint reader on the back, but it is difficult to achieve with any other finger than index finger.

As well as in Note 4 see Mate 7 features to customize, such as the keyboard and Squish it to one side of the screen to make it easier to use the phone with one hand while the other hand is busy with other things.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
If you look at the above all input is the area where Samsung has advantage in the form of pen’s-pen. If you have not been using it earlier, it may seem strange that a stylus could bring so much, but this is not about the stupid pens sitting in PDAs around the turn of the Millennium. The pen detects how hard you press and can also work for extras similar to right-click on a computer.

Screen
At phablets, it’s not just about the size, but also about the brightness, color fidelity and clarity. Everything in order to get the most out of their phone.

In this branch, one must say that Huawei is playing away from home.Is there a Samsung is known for, it’s their screens. We look at the screen i Mate 7 is not bad, but especially the brightness and resolution falls short of the level of the competitor. It is really only in square measure that Huawei’s screen is better than the one that sits in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and this is quality over square measure.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
It’s probably most resolution and color fidelity that affect when Samsung Galaxy Note 4 takes home the victory in the comparison of the two units ‘ screens. In terms of size, the screen is slightly smaller than the Note in Mate, there is a button centimetres in height, but the resolution is far better in the Samsung’s screen, making much of the sharpness.

Photo and video
The camera is probably one of the most frequently used features in a phone and these guys is no exception.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

None of the phone have physical camera button, but there are a lot of camera features after all. The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 can you pull a picture by holding your finger on the fingerprint scanner back.Especially for selfies is a convenient way to take a picture without camera shakes too much. Huawei is also good at interface and it is easy to find your way when you should take a quick simple image, but you can also obtain more advanced settings the times you prefer.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
On paper, as well as in practice, breaketh Samsung resistance here. Megapixelantalet is greater in Samsung’s mobile than i Mate 7, but more important is that the pictures and even movies are getting better. Contributing optical image stabilization seems to be, for movies, smoother motion and also the colour rendition is more lifelike in Note 4 than the images in the competitor can perform.

Performance
With a big screen performance is important, for the phone’s innards must, of course, power everything and the battery will also allow it to die too early.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7
There are no big differences when we compare the performance of these two devices. It is clear that both are top of the range with plenty of resources. I Mate 7 gives us an eight-core processor but the device is, above all, the battery life. In our battery test, we get out almost twice as long term use as Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can perform.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Is necessary to determine this branch so it becomes Samsung that is winning out of the performance comparison when looking solely at how quickly the phones reacts. But with that said, it’s no great differences in addition to the battery area where Samsung is a good piece after. It is, above all, the major difference in our battery test measured where the phones may stream a Youtube video until the battery runs out that determines this category.

Build quality
Neither Samsung or Huawei has no reputation for making even the most well-designed stuff, but we’ll find a winner.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

It may not be material and design as been Huawei’s main strength but rather engineering and price pressure, but Samsung, on the other hand, has been criticized for making too plastic flagship mobiles, and in this context shines Mate 7. On the front screen off to go almost all the way out to the edge and the back feels much better than Samsung’s blend of plastic and imitation leather.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Especially when Samsung themselves now released the next generation of top models in the form of S6 is the contrast with that which is already clear. Certainly gives the beveled edges together with the dark colored edges a certain elegance to Note 4, but plastic back side could have had a much better fit and feels not entirely trustworthy.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The pen and the screen is mainly what determines to Samsung’s advantage, but worth to consider is also the price. Today separates the approximately 2 000 SEK in price between these two entities, and it is not enough that the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 feels like a really affordable product. It is clear that you get more when you choose Note 4.
