I have bemoaned Hauwei products for looking and feeling cheap before now. But the company is now, finally, starting to change things.

First was the metal bodied Ascend P7 launched earlier this year, and now at IFA 2014 the Chinese firm has launched the all metal Huawei Ascend G7.

In terms of price Huawei hasn't announced it quite yet, but I was told that it will come in cheaper than the Ascend P7, so expect a mid-range price tag.

I say all metal - that's not strictly true, but it's pretty close. The Ascend G7 does sport a metal unibody, but there are two chunky gaps in the rear which are covered with plastic. This is presumably to allow the antenna and other equipment to function properly.

It's not as neat as the finishes I've seen on the HTC One M8Sony Xperia Z2 oriPhone 5S, but the Ascend G7 has a reassuring heft and feeling the metal against my palm certainly gave me a frisson of premium quality.

Huawei Ascend G7 review

This isn't a small or lightweight device, and with a 5.5-inch display the Huawei Ascend G7 creates a noticeable presence in the palm - and the pocket.

It will be a little too big and bulky for those will smaller hands, but if you're looking for a big screen smartphone that won't cost the earth, the G7 is still looking promising.

Huawei has kept the G7 at a respectably slender 7.6mm in depth, although it's a little wider in the centre thanks to the curved rear of the device.

Huawei Ascend G7 review

The closet rivals to the Huawei Ascend G7 are the HTC Desire 816 and the low cost, high spec OnePlus One.

The latter boasts a full HD 5.5-inch screen (versus the 720p resolution of the G7 and Desire 816) and while the body may be plastic the OnePlus wins out when it comes to power and performance.

Both the power/lock key and volume rocker are located on the right side of the handset, with the former below the latter - making them both easy to hit when holding the G7 in one hand.

Round the back the 13MP camera and single LED flash reside in the top plastic portion, while at the base of the device the second plastic area is home to a smallish speaker grille.

You'll find the headphone jack on top, while the microUSB charging port is on the bottom of the handset.

The presence of two trays on the right side of the Ascend G7 are your clues that you can't take the back off the handset - or even remove the two plastic sections.

Huawei Ascend G7 review

These trays allow you to stick your microSIM and microSD card into the handset, the latter of which helps you build on the 16GB of internal storage supplied.

This does mean there's no access to the 3000mAh battery which is sealed inside, but Huawei has its own power saving mode built in to the Android operating system to help you stretch out the last drops of juice.

It may not be the most striking metal smartphone I've had the pleasure of using, but the Huawei Ascend G7 is a positive step forward for the Chinese firm when it comes to design and I hope it's a sign of things to come.
