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 cameraï¿½s performance isnï¿½t 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
Summary: If you want a ridiculously slim phone to slide into your pocket and don't mind that its specs are more typical of last year's kit, the Ascend P6 is one to consider. Its overheating is a concern though, as are the small issues with construction and software. Let's hope Huawei sorts them out before it goes on sale.
Cons: Ridiculous port placement; Overheats to an alarming level; Some build quality concerns; Unimpressive performance from quad-core processor.
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.
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 front is almost all glass and the display is 4.7” with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels and can be used even when wearing gloves. The Ascend P6 runs Android 4.2 on Huawei’s own 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM.
