It is always good to see underdogs rise above the competition. Huawei started manufacturing its own line of smartphones roughly three years ago. From creating mediocre phones that lag miles behind their rivals, Huawei is now catching up really fast with high-end smartphones that look too desirable not to touch. The company continues its pursuit of elegance and technology with the new Huawei Ascend P6, often dubbed as the thinnest smartphone in the world. That claim has been subjected to a lot of opposing claims. Nevertheless, can the Huawei Ascend P6 prove to be more than just a thin phone?
The new Huawei Ascend P6 offers a very luxurious experience in terms of form and design. Its 6.18 mm thin body is perfectly balanced with its 132.65 mm x 65.5 mm vertical dimensions. This lends the device a light yet secure feel. On the glossy surface, you’ll see a 4.7 inch (1280 x 720) in-cell display that impresses with high pixel density as well as rich color luminosity. All the buttons, on the other hand, are to be found on the bezel.
Equipped with 1.5 GHz Quad-Core CPU, 2 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, the Huawei Ascend P6 runs smoothly despite its rich and detailed user interface. Instead of the stock Android Jellybean UI, you get Huawei’s own Emotion UI, which offers an elegant app navigation experience and themed widgets.
Without looking at the Huawei Ascend P6, it’s hard to tell just by touch alone that an 8-megapixel camera is present at the backside. While the rear camera gives you just the staples you’ll need for a good shot, you’ll be surprised to see a 5-megapixel camera at the fascia. The chic smartphone also packs in a 2000 mAh battery, which could last a day without charging on an average use.
Is It Worth Flaunting?
Without even trying, the Huawei Ascend P6 is bound to turn heads. Whether or not it is the world’s thinnest smartphone, you will surely appreciate all the features Huawei has squeezed in so tightly to its exquisitely slim body. The Huawei Ascend P6 may not be able to compete with leading smartphones neck-to-neck, but its smart design and premium user interface only prove that Huawei is capable of developing phones of sophistication. It’s just a matter of time before it finds the perfect balance between technology, function and form.
