The Huawei Ascend P6 was recently introduced and is an extremely attractive smartphone with some very decent specs. If youâ€™ve been thinking of buying a new phone and are considering the Ascend P6, you may be interested in a Huawei Ascend P6 review and video highlights that we have to show you.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is a very slim device at only 6.18mm thick and the first YouTube video that we have embedded below offers a very good look at the device. Before you view it you may want a quick summary of some of the key specs. The Ascend P6 has a 1.5GHz Huawei quad-core processor, has a 4.7-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD. Thereâ€™s also an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, and 2000 mAh battery, and it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The 12-minute video review begins by showing the design and build of the Ascent P6 in some detail, and itâ€™s described as having a premium feel. It continues by looking at the display, before moving on to the Emotion user interface on top of Android 4.2.2, followed by information on more specs including the processor.
When looking at the camera app interface itâ€™s noted that itâ€™s slow to load and there are some minor criticisms about image quality. The review is pretty effusive in praise of the Ascend P6 design but we wonâ€™t give away the ultimate verdict with pros and cons, so please do check out the video for a final rating. The second video is a brief indoor sample video taken with the Huawei Ascend P6, while the last video sample is taken outdoors.
In conclusion we feel that the Huawei Ascend P6 certainly merits consideration as your next smartphone, especially if you want a device with looks that will get noticed. Weâ€™d like to hear what you think, so after youâ€™ve taken a look at the videos below, please do send us your comments on the Ascend P6. Will you be choosing it as your next smartphone purchase?
Highly customisable homescreens
Bright and bold display
BadRidiculous port placement
Overheats to an alarming level
Some build quality concerns
Unimpressive performance from quad-core processor
From 80s-era goliaths and 90s-era Nokia wedges through to today's monolithic slabs, phones are continuously changing their size and shape. Even today, some smart phones are neatly palm-sized, while others -- like the Samsung Galaxy Mega -- sport screens so large that to use them you must stretch your thumbs further than nature ever intended.
Huawei's take on this is evidently 'the skinnier the better', as it's given the Ascend P6 a superbly narrow 6.18mm frame. That makes it the thinnest phone on the market today. Into that body, Huawei has packed a quad-core processor, a 720p display and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
It's available from July for Â£330 SIM-free.
