With the addition of Huawei's facial enhancement software, and the default two-second countdown timer when you switch to the front camera, Huawei is clearly angling for for improved self-portrait photos.

Color representation is very good and you can also adjust the display's color temperature from cold to warm with a slider in the display settings.

Reviews Word on the street for the Huawei Ascend P6


8.0
The screen has good viewing angles, and is sufficiently bright outside with its 470 nits, but has a bit too much reflectance, which diminishes sunlight visibility and makes it hard to tell in direct rays due to the mirror reflections.

8.0
It's exactly 720p so good for HD movie file playback, but not the more premium 1080p resolution of some other competitors out there.

8.0
Email is handled by the standard Gmail app, which has recently been improved considerably.

7.9 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

It's also got a truly excellent 4.7-inch LCD display.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
The Ascend P6 gets almost all major smartphone details right except for the mediocre camera, which has some issues both with pictures and video.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2013)
Part of the reason it looks so impressive is the fact that the LCD is an IPS panel, so you get great viewing angles.

Apps

The music player is pretty basic visually, too, with the obligatory tune categorization by artists, albums and genres, as well as album art depiction.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2013)
In addition, there's a standard email app that enables you to pull in any other email POP3 or IMAP accounts you might have.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
Factor in apps that get progressively larger as they get updated, or apps that store their own data, and it doesn't take long for that 5GB to fill up.

Camera

As we've discovered, the image sensor and lens array is far more important.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
Combined with a healthy f/2.0 aperture, you can get some lovely depth of field effects with plenty of detail in the foreground and deliberately defocused background (also known as 'bokeh).
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
But where it truly impresses is in its 4cm macro capabilities, which allow you to get in extremely close for those arty Instagram-worthy shots.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)

Video

Yes, it's 'only' 720p, but it's still a crisp and sharp example that makes any media content look great.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
The Huawei Ascend P6's 2000mAh battery is about right for a modern quad-core smartphone with a bright 720p HD display, sitting somewhere between the similar Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X..
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
Through it you access photos, videos, and even any movies you might have installed on the phone.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)

Size

That this average battery size didn't impact on the device's below-average size and weight is a tribute to Huawei's engineers.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
At a shade under 6.2 mm thick, Huawei is claiming that this is the slimmest smartphone in the world.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2013)
Being the slimmest out there has its virtues in terms of looks and portability, and disadvantages in terms of feel as it is often uncomfortable to operate such a thin device, or pick it up from a desk.
