The Huawei Ascend G6 looks really good with a smart retro design. The metallic parts look really classy and premium. The phone is just an average phone without no such feature which will make it stand out. The UI is pretty interactive and fluid. The...

Huawei Ascend G6 review

 

The Ascend G6 focuses on low price, 4G and the selfie

Excellent front camera ; Good battery life ; Fast 4G connection

Poor keyboard ; Childish UI ; Low-res screen

A solid offering in terms of design and value, the Huawei Ascend G6 is let down by unreliable usability and a custom UI that will divide opinion. Up against tough competition, there are better handsets available at this price.
