Reviews for the Huawei Ascend P6

86% Review Huawei Ascend P6 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Aluminum and more. Huawei has sent a stylish phone to our lab: An aluminum casing available in three different colors, quad-core SoC and a slim profile. Huawei's P6 should convince across the board with that, shouldn't it?

The Huawei Ascend P6 shows that the Chinese manufacturer can really make an impression on the Android market with its stunningly slim - if slightly derivative - design, as well as some quirky features that mark it out as a little bit different. The Ascend P6 may be Huawei's flagship device, but it's not a smartphone which will find itself at the top of smartphone tree - more playing catch-up to an ever strengthening pack.

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. The design of the smartphone is slim, sexy and is definitely the first thing you'll notice about the P6. The interface offers a slight learning curve since Android has been completely customised and you may want to get your hands on the phone's interface before buying it.

The Huawei Ascend P6's headlines are the price and the thinness. It's light, remarkably slim and yet still a decent performer. There's also that higher-resolution front-facing camera to add an extra facet, though whether the beauty effect will be something you'll use without embarrassment is another matter. Still, decent battery life and a reasonable 8MP rear camera mean plenty of boxes are ticked. And above all, this is a phone that costs significantly less than its rivals. It's not as classy as the iPhone 5 and can't take pictures like the HTC One but it's a fun phone. Unless you're dead set on 4G - the phone's biggest omission - it's worth a look.

80% Huawei Ascend P6 review: world's thinnest iPhone?
Source: PC Advisor English
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.

Considering the P6's modest £380 price, it is a fairly good phone. Featuring a nippy, albeit not cutting-edge, processor, decent screen and solid, but slightly too iPhone-like, design. Its strong points are let down by a host of poor Emotion software additions and poor battery life. For this reason, while we imagine most people will be more than happy with the P6, we can't wholeheartedly recommend it – at least not until Huawei decides to release a version running stock Android.

The thinnest smartphone in the world
Source: Inside HW English
From what we’ve seen so far, Ascend P6 is full of promise. It’s hard to predict how the final versions of both hardware and software will look like, but if they meet our expectation, it will be great. Even the test version is a very nice smartphone, extremely thin and comfortable to use. Design and ergonomics are merged in the right way, which we’ve especially liked.

Huawei Ascend P6 review: a beautiful handset, but performance is lacking
Source: Engadget English
For a phone that had its specifications fairly public for some time, it's hard to feel overly excited about what the Ascend P6 has to offer. That's not intended to seem unkind, however. It's more an acknowledgement that it's clear the majority of the effort has been put into designing an object of desire, rather than blowing our minds with numbers and features.

Huawei Ascend P6 hands-on review: world's thinnest iPhone?
Source: PC Advisor English
There's no escaping the fact that a lot of the Ascend P6 design looks like it's been borrowed from the iPhone 5. With the same flat aluminium sides and rounded corners. Put it in a slip case and you'll easily convince your mates that you've upgraded to an Apple smartphone. The only real differences are the screen size (it's bigger than then iPhone) and the rounded bottom edge. Oh, and it also comes in pink.

Huawei Ascend P6 review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
Our initial impressions are positive although we’ll wait to get a model in for review for a full assessment. Admittedly, the Huawei Ascend P6 owes a lot in design terms to the iPhone 5, but credit is due to the Huawei design team for turning out a handset as well constructed as the Ascend P6.

The Huawei Ascend P6 shows that the Chinese manufacturer can really make an impression on the Android market with its stunningly slim - if slightly derivative - design, as well as some quirky features that mark it out as a little bit different. However, Huawei needs to bring its software design up to the same high standard if it's to truly compete at the very top of the game.

Huawei Ascend P6
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Huawei Ascend P6 is a strong handset from what remains one of the lesser known global manufacturers. The P6 is a sign that the brand is finally putting as much effort into its design as it is the spec and low price point. If marketed correctly, the Huawei Ascend P6 could be the device to send Huawei into the mainstream. It won’t be troubling the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One just yet, though.
