Huawei Ascend G6 4G / EE Kestrel Review: In Depth


The EE Kestrel (or Huawei Ascend G6 4G in its unbranded form) is the cheapest UK 4G phone and a great all-round budget mobile. Read our review »

Cheap-as-chips 4G ; Slick experience ; Great battery life ; Bright, colourful screen

Hazy camera photos ; Awkward headphone jack ; Crowded desktops

If you’re after a cheap, well-made Android phone, look no further than the Huawei G6. The UI and the hardware can be a little bit low-rent for Android power-users, but that’s a good thing for the target market. This isn’t the Android phone of choice...

Sub-HD screen, processor not as powerful as it could be,headphone jack oddly placed

Review: Huawei Ascend G6


'Every year, there\x92s a phone that takes out the best value for middle ground, and this year, it appears Huawei is grabbing that crown for the Ascend G6, at least for the moment, with a slightly-above-budget handset that nets impressive 4G download...

Very fast 4G access, Lightweight phone, Decent battery life lasting up to two days, Includes a screen protector in the box

Very plasticky, Can exhibit noticeable slowdowns, Some software niggles, Screen isn't particularly impressive at qHD (960x540)
