Slender, beautiful and stunningly finished

The Huawei Ascend P6 is far more than the thinnest smartphone you’ve ever seen. Although it is slender (just 6.18mm thick), the Ascend P6 is beautiful too – with Huawei’s unique ‘Double C’ design frame. Whilst the edges of the P6 are wrapped in a stunning polished aluminium alloy frame, the back is a tactile brushed aluminium alloy with an anti scratch coating. The combined effect is a smartphone that both fits and feels fabulous in your hand. The Ascend P6 is built to be beautiful and durable. The 4.7” HD screen is cased in aluminium Alloy casing, and an anti scratch coating on the rear, the Ascend P6 is as strong and resilient to everyday life as it is beautiful.

8MP innovative main camera & Unique 5MP front facing camera

The P6 has an 8MP main camera with flash that’s designed to optimise your pictures - in all sorts of circumstances. The large 2.0 aperture will capture bright clear photos in dim and dusky conditions, whilst the SONY EXMOR RS Sensor will allow you to focus just a few centimetres from objects where you want to capture real details. The P6 also has features like auto scene recognition, auto light filling and target tracking which will ensure your everyday pictures are always great ... and if you’re looking to shoot video – you can shoot in 1080p HD. If you’re an avid social networker, the 5MP front camera on the Ascend P6 is just what you’ve been waiting for. You’ll not just be able to take great pictures of yourself wherever you are, you’ll finally be able to judge your image before you’ve even taken them. With its wider angled lens, the Ascend P6 will be able to get your family, friends or the place you’re in, into the picture with you.

A huge battery – optimised to last

The Ascend P6 packs a huge 2,000 mAh battery, which is designed to last and last. Huawei is a world leader in the development of mobile phone networks and mobile devices. We’ve used our expertise to optimise the way the P6 works with the networks, making batteries last as much as 30% longer. Ascend P6 has a ‘Power Manager’ that will tell you how long you have left, as well as suggested options that you can select to optimise whatever life you have left before charging.

Built to surf and entertain

Being slim doesn’t need to mean compromising on the good things. The Ascend P6 is built with the latest tech to give you a great surfing and entertainment experience. The P6 packs a 4.7” HD screen, a lightning fast 1.5Ghz Quad core processor and a huge 2,000 mAh battery. So if you’re looking to enjoy catch up TV like BBC iPlayer, or the millions of movies, books and tunes from Google Play, you have the power, sound, screen and all important power that you need.

Colour Name:Black
I have been using this phone for a couple of weeks now and haven't been more impressed by a phone. I upgraded from an iPhone 4S and the difference is massive. For starters, I can get two full days battery life out of the phone - which is unbelievable to me after having put up with sometimes having to charge my iPhone throughout the day to keep it going. I love the Android skin as it does away with the app draw and makes everything much simpler to navigate than other android phones i've played on. Its actually more similar to the iPhone than other android phones.

The 8 megapixel camera isn't as high as other phones but the quality can be really amazing. it struggles a little in low light photos though. Overall i'm very impressed, especially with the build quality which is even better than my old iphone. I was very surprised this phone comes from a maker i've never heard of!!

4.0 out of 5 stars P6 Rocks 5 Sep 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This is a very good piece of kit for a good price, I've never owned a smartphone before so realistically cannot comment about its standing amongst it rivals suffice to say that if this was the lowest denominator then the rest must be really special.
So from my lowly opinion.
It feels great in your hand.
It does or hasnt overheated.
It takes good pics, not the best but on the screen they look brill.
Ive played the game loaded on it and it works fine.
It loads pages quickly and effectively.
The battery seems to last for about 2 Days without using it but this seems to be getting better, not sure if this is good or not.
Low price.
Good Looking.
Seems to integrate easily with my WiFi.
Im Happy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Looker 10 Oct 2013
Colour Name:Black
Ok I didn't get it off Amazon, got it off another retailer for £240, a fair bit cheaper than amazon. So here goes then. This phone is a very good mid-higher range phone. Its not up to my S4 in multitasking but it blows it away in looks. At just over 6mm thick, or should I say thin, this phone really looks the business. Friends often remark on this device & are amazed by its looks, although lose interest when you say its made by Huawei. Their comments are usually that they would not buy because its chinese. This often comes from people with the iPhone, although I do remind them that their over hyped & vastly overpriced iPhone is actually made in China. They usually look blank at this piont.
The P6 is one of the best ear piece speakers of any phone I have ever owned & I own a few & have owned many. I point this out because it stood out to me when making a call. Only the Sony xperia P I once owned ever made me realise how good the call quality was & now the Huawei P6. The camera is an 8meg at the back but also has a 5meg at the front, a feature my daughter really likes for self portraits.
The item has a quality feel being mainly alloy & to be honest I have had to put on the free gel case you get with the phone because its so slim I find it hard to pick up.
The comments regarding overheating are to be dismissed, as said I have owned dozens of smart phones & they all heat up when being tasked. It's obvious a device is going to heat when the battery is being pushed. Also I saw a comment if the battery is built in then when the battery becomes faulty the phone is lost. No they are not! take to qualified vendors who can replace all batteries even in phones with sealed batteries. I might add the battery is not a common fault with phones, its only the devices misuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars really nice phone 24 Sep 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
My wifes mother is using the phone. She is not an advanced user but she loves this phone for its flawless design and finish.

In my eyes this phone is a trusted companion for any daily situation. It is fast enough for any app available on the market and the battery is very durable, so my wifes mother puts it every second or third day to the plug.

She takes a lot of photos and especially she likes the effects for picture quality enhancement (skin smoothing, hdr filter etc.) which are already included in the stock camera app. The camera itself takes really good pictures, at least as good as taken by the iphone 4s. (not compared with the newer models)

I would recommend this phone to everyone who appreciates high quality and great performance. You really get a lot for the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Huawei P6 - Excellent Purchase 11 April 2014
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
I liked this product because it's one of the most recent smartphones and for the specifications it has got, I thought it was pretty cheap! Besides, it is the thinner smartphone that exists and that counts a lot.
I recommend this phone for those who like thin, light phones and at the same time, the latest technology and speed in software

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice phone, good deals available. 21 Sep 2013
Colour Name:Black
The only problem I have with this phone is the difficulty in linking contacts - multiple instances of the same contact from different places (Facebook, gmail, phone) should be easier to link than they are.

Apart from that, I love this phone. The camera is really good - the colours are pretty true to life (I took lots of pictures of sunset, which some phones just can't handle) and the front facing camera is 5mp - much more than average.

The phone is nice and slim but actually still quite big with a 4.7" screen. It fits into some of my pockets but pokes out the top of others. it feels less annoying in the pocket than other phones because it is so slim.

The pre-installed apps are pretty much perfect, I hate having too much bloat-ware pre-installed and there isn't too much on this phone which is good. also comes with a fairly good document viewer and editor, if you ever want to use those things on your phone. the WiFi connectivity has been pretty good, and internet speeds are what you would expect over WiFi. 3G speeds are also pretty good, just varies from area to area as with all signal related things. I've not noticed any lag in the phone when running multiple applications, and I really like the function on Jellybean of being able to close any application easily without having to download an additional app like advanced task manager.

My previous phone was an HTC Desire, so I expect all other makers have made leaps and bounds since then too, but I am really very impressed with Huawei. It's been easy to get used to, easy to customise and the hardware seems very good.

Also, this phone comes with a case included in the box - don't bother buying one until you've tried it with this case and see how you like it (I originally ordered one which I sent back because it is EXACTLY the same as the one that comes with the phone).
