According to CNET


  • Incredibly thin
  • Highly customisable homescreens
  • Bright and bold display


  • Ridiculous port placement
  • Overheats to an alarming level
  • Some build quality concerns
  • Unimpressive performance from quad-core processor

Above is a quick run of Quadrant, since that’s one of the most popular tests, and it clearly isn’t doing too well in the quad-core category. Huawei has been making strides, their quad-core still can’t quite compete with many powerful dual-core devices.

The P6 comes running the latest version of Android, known as 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. You wouldn’t recognise it by looking though, as Huawei has plonked its Emotion user interface over the top.

Fairly unimpressive performance, the Ascend P6 isn’t going to excite those of you hankering after elite gadgets to fill your pockets. If design is more important than pure specs though, the P6’s ridiculously slim body will definitely appeal.

Huawei Pakistan is running a special pre-order promotion, providing the phone at a discounted rate of Rs. 37,000 as well as chance to win return tickets to Dubai. You can pre-order the phone by following this link:
