Huawei Ascend G6 review

 

The Ascend G6 focuses on low price, 4G and the selfie

Excellent front camera ; Good battery life ; Fast 4G connection

Poor keyboard ; Childish UI ; Low-res screen

Ratings in depth Huawei made a lot of noise last year launching its then-flagship Huawei Ascend P6, boasting that at 6.2mm thick it was the thinnest phone available at the time.

A cheap 4G phone with a good camera, but its rough screen and unresponsive buttons make it a chore to use

Huawei's slim midrange phone is good but not spectacular

Slim, comfortable design, Good overall performance, 4G support

Not great value for money, Awkward headphone jack placement, Emotion UI lacks the polish of unskinned Android

Huawei Ascend G6 review

 

A step down from Huawei's new flagship the Ascend P7 is theAscend G6, a solidly capable 4G-capable smartphone at a solidlymidrange price. But considering the attractive pricing of the P7,should it have been even cheaper? Full review

Neat and sturdy design, good cameras front and back

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

The Huawei Ascend G6 is a solidly built and solidly performingmid-range handset. But in an market increasingly crowded withprecocious performers it's barely holding its own, especiallyagainst newbies like the OnePlus One which delivers a...
