Review Huawei Ascend P6 Smartphone

 

Aluminum and more. Huawei has sent a stylish phone to our lab: An

Very nice aluminum casing; Solid build; Extremely slim profile; Clearly arranged operating system; Good software add-ons; Many included accessories; Bright screen; Adaptable color temperature; Good Wi-Fi and phone signal; Cameras shoot pictures in a...

Outdated SoC; Screen's low resolution; No LTE; Unsatisfactory GPS signal; High power consumption; Too low gaming performance

That Huawei's Ascend P6 puts the established competitors in an unfavorable light in some categories.

Huawei Ascend P6 review: Zen droid slim

 

The razor-slim Huawei Ascend P6 has snatched the slimmest smartphone title right under the nose of the big guns. The China-based maker is not only keeping up with its high-profile competitors in terms of both hardware and software, but has achieved...

Ultra-slim 6.2mm profile ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; penta-band 3G with HSPA ; 4.7" 16M-color 720p IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, usable with gloves ; Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI ; Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9,...

Non-exchangeable battery ; No LTE or NFC support ; Video recording could be better ; Disappointing audio output

The Ascend P6 may be the thinnest smartphone on the market right now, but since that title is Huawei's to lose, it's actually a good thing that this sleek devices has a few more tricks in the bag too.

Huawei Ascend P6 review: a beautiful handset, but performance is lacking

 

More InfoHuawei Ascend P6 officially announcedHuawei Ascend P6 specs leakedNew Huawei P6-U06 spy shots show off black, brushed metallic

Great camera ; Excellent design ; Good build quality

Lackluster performance ; Modest battery life ; No LTE (yet)

A great step forward for Huawei in terms of product design, but just lacking on some performance on software details. Improve these, and it's a potentially great phone.

Huawei Ascend P6

 

You'd be forgiven for mistaking the Huawei Ascend P6 for an iPhone 5 -- particularly if viewed from a distance. With its distinctive rounded bottom, an all-glass front, and a brushed-aluminum backside, the P6 definitely borrows a design cue or two from...

Impressive design. Ridiculously slim and light. Super-bright display

Odd SIM-ejector plug which you will lose in a week. Head scratching port placement. Overheating issues. No 4G connectivity

Huawei Ascend P6 Review

 

The Ascend P6 is trying to provide what many think Android is not strong at in this moment – a well-designed midranger with adequate pricing. The phone is not only the slimmest samrtphone at 6.18mm (0.24”), but the generous use of metal and some design...

Svelte metallic design ; Pentaband radio

Subpar camera ; Feels sluggish compared to other quad-core phones

With its combination of curved lines and sharp metal edges, the slimmest phone out there is undoubtedly one of the most elegant designs we've seen, too, and not only in the Android world.

Review: Huawei Ascend P6 – Selfie Shot Perfection

 

It's a bit pricey at P18k, for a dual core Android. But the Huawei Ascend P6 never stutters, the screen is crisp and gorgeous, its size and thinness (6.18mm deep) ensure one hand use, and the 5MP front and 8MP back cameras flaunt a real-time skin tone...

Apart from the lack of LTE, average but tenable battery life (7-8 hours), the SIM card tray ejector you’ll most likely lose, and angular profile (the sides still tend to dig into the V of my thumb and index finger, but the comes-with rubber case solves...

Great design, impressive specs and a solid price ... so where does it fall short?Huawei is one of the dark-horse Android manufacturers, with a larger market share than you would guess (mostly o...

— we have our eye on any manufacturer that is willing to come from "nowhere" and challenge the big players with some great features. But this isn't the device that is going to turn any heads towards Huawei. Better luck next time.

Huawei Ascend P6 Android Smartphone

 

Announced last month at its dedicated press event in London, the Huawei Ascend P6 is Huawei's latest addition to its range of Android-powered Ascend smartphones. Being - at the moment - the world's slimmest smartphone, by being only 6.18 mm thick, the...

Camera shoot-out between HTC One, Huawei Ascend P6, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Nokia Lumia 925

 

No question, doesn't matter if a smartphone has LTE, a 720p or 1080p HD touchscreen or Android, iOS or Windows Phone, one of the best - if not the best - features of is the camera. The camera is always with you, the camera is virtually always ready to...

Huawei Ascend P6 review

 

When it comes to consumer-focused phones, things take one of two directions: dull and functional, or pretty and powerful. The Huawei P6 falls into the latter category. It's a phone that takes design cues from the iPhone, with a metal bezel around the...

Stylish, powerful enough for most uses, LCD screen looks decent, Huawei OS tweaks are pleasant enough

The headphone cover/sim release pin is irritating, battery life is a massive problem, limited on-board storage, is it enough to consider over similar-priced phones

We like the P6. It's got good looks, runs well and it feels well built. Yes, there are some really minor niggles, like that daft headphone cover/pin, among some more major issues such as the limited battery life - but we still rather like the phone...
