The Ascend P6 is the latest attempt from Chinese tech giant Huawei to wrestle control of the western smartphone market from current top dogs Samsung and Apple.
In this endeavour the smartphone employs the same tactic as past Huawei phones, offering users top-end technical specifications at a mid-tier price. Specifically the P6 features an ultra-thin 6mm chassis that houses a powerful 1.5GHz quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor and 4.7in, 1280x720-pixel, 312ppi IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen – but costs just £380.
Other key additions include the use of Huawei's custom Emotion Android skin. The skin lies on top of the phone's core Android 4.2.2 operating system and is designed to offer users "a more personal" experience, adding things like Huawei's Me Widget. The Me Widget uses data stored on the phone to collate services and applications often used, and push them to the front of the UI.
