Huawei Ascend P7 now on sale in parts of Europe

Huawei's latest high-end offering, the Ascend P7, has gone on sale through Amazon in France and Germany ahead of its anticipated UK launch on June 16. The device aims to undercut current high-end Android flagships by offering Android 4.4 KitKat on a 1080p display for around £200 less than devices like the HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5.

Here's how we broke things down in our hands-on coverage of the phone —

"The P7 is a solid effort, particularly in terms of hardware, where its use of glass sets it apart from some of the plastic-based competition. But it's not as buttery-smooth as the high-end competition, and it remains to be seen whether the company's software experience, which seems more closely tied to MIUI than vanilla Android, will prove as usable as rivals' visions of the OS."

Look for a full review of the P7 here on Android Central in the days ahead.
