The Mobile Indian

Design is impressive, battery performance is average

from The Mobile Indian

Huawei Ascend P6 is a stunning device. It is definitely light and easy to use. The Emotion UI is a welcome change but it depends on person to person whether they like it or not. Overall the device scores highly on design and innovation, but there is scope for improvement.

The Huawei Ascend P6 was rather impressive. For a device that didn’t carry a hefty price tag, there is no lack in both hardware and software, for the general consumer. If you’re someone who wants the best specs, and newest OS, then you may want to skip over this. However, if you’re looking for a device that doesn’t ruin your budget, and gets the job done, (rather nicely too), then definitely check out the Ascend P6.

Outstanding slim built, super light in weight

Ascend P6 is a joy to carry around because it’s lightweight and built slim. Wish it were light on the wallet. too. It is difficult to justify why a phone that wins big on looks but not as much on performance should be priced as such. For a company that is striving to make its presence felt...More

Ascend P6 is a joy to carry around because it’s lightweight and built slim. Wish it were light on the wallet. too. It is difficult to justify why a phone that wins big on looks but not as much on performance should be priced as such. For a company that is striving to make its presence felt in a tough market, scoring on price point is of utmost importance.

The Huawei Ascend P6 is a beautiful device, but it’s hampered by many issues that can’t be forgiven. Huawei’s quad-core processor should be enough to make this phone perform smoothly, but it ends up performing more like a single-core Snapdragon. It’s not horrible, but definitely not of the level and quality I expect out of such a chipset. More damning than that is horrible battery life that would make it hard for anyone to make it through a full day without having to plug up.

What Hi-Fi

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

from What Hi-Fi

It’s passable and unlikely to annoy, but it’s simply not as good as many of the best smartphones on the market when playing decent quality files. This is a very good effort (and it is a touch more affordable than some of the premium mobiles on the market) but it’s not quite the finished article.

Pocket-lint

Stylish, powerful enough for most uses, LCD screen looks decent

from Pocket-lint

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 when it's in full swing.

It’s yet another spectacular device from Huawei

The phone actually has full animations turned on as default, so switching from portrait to landscape is fluid as flip, but does involve a momentary wait whilst the phone prepares the animation. I loved the on-screen keyboard (it was pretty accurate and had a lot of settings) and was impressed by the overall finish of the phone. It was a complete package – the outside build quality, design and premium feel continued into the OS and the GUI that Huawei have added. It feels like a much more expensive handset than it is.

Impressive design, ridiculously slim and light, super-bright display

from Wired

The P6 isn’t a bad choice for someone who appreciates a nice-looking piece of hardware they can tote around the world. But considering anyone in U.S. will have to opt for an unlocked version online, which can range from $500 to $750, it’s a little hard to justify. If you care about pe...More

The P6 isn’t a bad choice for someone who appreciates a nice-looking piece of hardware they can tote around the world. But considering anyone in U.S. will have to opt for an unlocked version online, which can range from $500 to $750, it’s a little hard to justify. If you care about performance, are a heavy mobile gamer, or just have a passion for big, bright pictures, you probably want to consider something else.

It provides real value for money even if it is lacking NFC and 4G support

from Tech Advisor

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.

Compared to something like the Galaxy S4 above, which has a bigger HD display, almost double the battery life and performance that is in another league, Huawei needs to focus on more things that just being pretty and thin. Don’t get me wrong, I loved everything about this phone aside from it getting hot doing nearly any and all tasks, I just wish Huawei focused as much attention everywhere as they do the sleek design and beautiful curves.
