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

 

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.

Great camera ; Excellent design ; Good build quality

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

For a phone that had its specifications fairly public for some time, it's hard to feel overly excited about what the Ascend P6 has to offer. That's not intended to seem unkind, however. It's more an acknowledgement that it's clear the majority of the...

Modish Monolith

 

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...

Huawei Ascend P6: Meet Huawei's new, super-skinny smartphone

 

Huawei's latest mobile measures a mere 6.18mm thick, but finds space for a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

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Outdated SoC; Screen's low resolution; No LTE; Unsatisfactory GPS signal; High power consumption; Too low gaming performance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

 

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...

Huawei Ascend P6 Review

 

There is no denying the fact that the Huawei P6 is an impressive phone. However, the inaccessible battery, no NFC and the low benchmark scores are some things you'll have to consider when looking at entire package on offer. The positives include the...

Super slim and ultra-light, Good display, Excellent build quality and well designed

Core performance (esp. gaming) isn't up to the expected level, lacks headroom in terms of performance, Lacks NFC

Huawei Ascend P6 review

 

Huawei's latest entry into the market that is hoping turn a few heads is the Huawei Ascend P6, and on paper and in press images it looks like it has it all.

In terms of physical design and manufacturing prowess, Huawei has a winner on its hands with the Ascend P6. It has managed to take a well-made and good-looking body that is impossibly thin, fill it with some high-end components and cap it off with a...
