Hands-on with Huawei's frighteningly skinny Ascend P6 Video Transcript
Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Huawei Ascend P6. The first thing to note about this phone is that it's super slim. It measures just 6.18-mm thick, making it very slender indeed. It's quite light too, weighing roughly 120 g, so you'll hardly notice it once you slide this into your jeans pocket. The sides are made out of aluminum as is the back which has this brushed metal effect, and while the P6 looks a lot like the iPhone, it does manage to distinguish itself slightly with this curved casing beneath the screen. Build quality meanwhile seems high. This phone feels quite sturdy. The screen measures 4.7 inches and has a 720p resolution which is why all the on-screen action looks nice and sharp. Around the back, meanwhile, there's an 8-megapixel camera while, unusually, the front-facing camera is a 5-megapixel effect. That means Skype calls or your [unk] posed self shots should look nice and crisp. Inside, there's a 1.5-gigahertz quad-core processor powering everything. You'll also get 2 gigabytes of RAM and 8 gigabytes of on-board storage, which you can beef up using a microSD card. The P6 is running Android Jelly Bean version 4.2.2, but over the top, you get Huawei's Emotion User Interface. The most noticeable difference from normal Android is there's no app list, so all of your apps live on the home screen. That means fewer button presses to get to your apps, but things could easily become a bit disorganized. Unlike the Ascend P2, the P6 doesn't have 4G. That means you'll be relegated to 3G speeds when it comes to downloads and web browsing. It's coming out in July and let me know what you think. I'm Luke Westaway and this is the Huawei Ascend P6.
