Engadget Review

Huawei Ascend P6 review: a beautiful handset, but performance is lacking

A great step forward for Huawei in terms of product design, but just lacking on some performance on software details. Improve these, and it's a potentially great phone.

Pros
  • Great camera
  • Excellent design
  • Good build quality
Cons
  • Lackluster performance
  • Modest battery life
  • No LTE (yet)
