Summary: 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 fact that the display is gorgeous and responsive. The camera's performance isn't the best but is suited for casual photographers.
Pros: Super slim and ultra-light, Good display, Excellent build quality and well designed
Cons: Core performance (esp. gaming) isn't up to the expected level, lacks headroom in terms of performance, Lacks NFC
Excerpt: 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 Cupertino. Pick up this world phone though, and you’ll quickly realize the similarities end there.
Pros: Impressive design. Ridiculously slim and light. Super-bright display.
Cons: Odd SIM-ejector plug which you will lose in a week. Head scratching port placement. Overheating issues. No 4G connectivity.
Excerpt: Slim and beautiful, the Ascend P6 is one of the thinnest smartphones in the world with a depth of just 6.18mm while it weighs in at only 120 grams.

The Ascend P6 runs Android 4.2 on Huawei’s own 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM.
Conclusion: Where the Huawei Ascend P6 really shines is in terms of value, looking like it should cost a lot more than £330 off contract. There are compromises, don't get us wrong. The phone has some real performance issues, not to mention a mediocre max internet speed of 3G. The battery life could also be better and the user interface a little bit lighter.
Pros: Thin, light and elegant, Bright, sharp screen, Strong camera performance
Cons: Performance issues, Mediocre battery life, Slow max internet speeds

Summary: The Ascend P6 combines a good set of hardware in a very sexy design and super thin form factor that very few other handsets have achieved. Huawei has certainly done a lot of effort in order to give the P6 the title of world’ thinnest and the attention to detail is very evident. The P6 represents the best Huawei can do at the moment and though it might not be as impressive as other high-end flagship devices that came with full HD display, NFC and LTE, the Ascend P6 can...
Summary: While I can’t verify that the Huawei Ascend P6 is the world’s slimmest smartphone as its makers claim, the device marks a definitive step in the direction of style and luxury among Asian device makers and should rightfully displace its polycarbonate-clad rivals into the same fashion league as polyester.
