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 at Rs. 29,999. For a...

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...

So I’ve mentioned this new handset already. Out of the box it’s a corking design. Glance at it from the sides and you there’s a whiff of iPhone about it. Before I start though, I should also mention something else. I’m becoming increasingly impressed...

The Ascend P6 can't compete with the likes of the iPhone 5, HTC One or Samsung Galaxy S4, but it's considerably cheaper than any of them both SIM-free and on contract. It does give the Nexus 4 a run for its money, however. There's no doubting the...

You'd be forgiven for mistaking the Huawei Ascend P6 for an iPhone 5 — particularly if viewed from a distance. With its distinctive rounded bottom, an all-glass front, and a brushed-aluminum backside, the P6 definitely borrows a design cue or two from...

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.

Given its midrange price, the Ascend P6 isn't really in competition with heavyweights (not literally) like the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One . Still, it gives both a run for their money and offers a sleekly skinny alternative to the Google Nexus 4 which...

The Huawei Ascend P6 has a good screen, solid construction and a decent camera. However, software quirks and a quad-core processor that is no more powerful than the latest dual-core models mean it’s no superstar.

The Huawei Ascend P6 is let down by its battery life and that's a real shame because other than that it is a neatly designed, well sized, capable phone that has the microSD card support the P2 doesn't – while leaving out the LTE and NFC that not...
