Huawei Ascend P6 review

 

Huawei takes on the Android big guns with its strongest smartphone yet

Sharp design ; Extremely thin and light ; Strong screen

Small internal storage ; Weak apps and widgets ; App compatibility issues

The Huawei Ascend P6 represents the Chinese smartphone manufacturer's biggest attempt yet to join the Android elite. It boasts a level of design and a range of quietly innovative features that are in many ways worthy of Samsung, HTC, LG and Sony at...

Huawei Ascend P6 - Pocket-lint

 

The Huawei P6 is a good phone that has an appealing design, feels slick in the hand, runs well and all while being a pretty sensible price. The headphone

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...

The Huawei Ascend P6 is a strange beast. Many will disregard it without a moment's hesitation, handling it with the same approach many car drivers did

Huawei Ascend P6 review

 

Huawei latest effort in the smartphone market is its flagship Ascend P6. Huawei tends to make budget smartphones, especially for the UK scene, but the Ascend P6 is a shot at the big guns – namely the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

The Huawei Ascend P6 is a fantastic and desirable smartphone, whether it's an iPhone copy or not. It provides real value for money even if it is lacking NFC and 4G support. We particularly like the cameras and the customisable user interface.

Huawei Ascend P6

 

The slimmest smartphone in the world is a bit of an oddball.

Slim, light and mostly metal, Sharp, bright screen

Mediocre performance for a quad-core phone, Quirkier than a Wes Anderson film, Some odd design choices

Beautiful hardware spoiled by laggy software

Huawei Ascend P6

 

Nicely designed and simple to use, the P6 is let down by its sound and video performance

Smart design ; Easy to use ; Decent spec ; Sharp screen with good colours

Prone to lag ; Instability issues with some apps and when watching video ; Average sound

Huawei is clearly capable of designing and building a premium smartphone. But while the hardware side is sorted, the P6 shows the software still needs some work.
