Stylish curves

Check out the rear camera

This is an 8-megapixel camera, plus flash. Nothing too special here, but around the front...

How many megapixels?!

...you'll find a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Why not add some clarity to your carefully posed selfies, eh?

Getting Emotional

Though it's powered by Android 4.2.2, the P6 uses Huawei's Emotion UI, which lacks an app tray. As such, all your apps are arranged on the phone's home screens.

The Ascend P6 is deathly slim at 6.18mm. You're looking at the microSD card slot (right) and the SIM card slot (to the left).

A slender package

Impressively, there's a 1.5GHz quad-core processor lurking inside this slim chassis. That should be powerful enough for graphically demanding games and plenty of multitasking.
