A few years back, Huawei was a virtually unknown company. However, with the Chinese telecoms manufacturing company bringing in quality mobile devices, it has quickly become a popular brand among consumers who are in the budget- and mid-range category. In fact, with the company’s latest Smartphone release, which is in the form of the Huawei Ascend P6, the likes of Apple and Samsung are facing what may be their newest competitor.

There are a lot of things about the Ascend P6 that may definitely give top brands Apple and Samsung a run for their money. The latest mobile device, which is super slim while being packed with great features, is targeting the industry’s high-end consumers. The only thing that keeps the company from being widely recognized is the fact that its branding value is still not being perceived by users to be on par with Apple and Samsung. To find out what this newest Smartphone has to offer, read on.
A Brief Overview on the Ascend P6
The Huawei Ascend P6 is billed as the thinnest Smartphone available as of today. The device runs on Android Jelly Bean operating system (version 4.2.2) and features a combination of great and cutting-edge technologies. The phone is mainly targeted to consumers in China (the country where Huawei is based in) and Western Europe, with the product shipping starting this month. As for Canada and the United States, it is still unknown when the device will be made available to their residents. What has been reported though is the phone’s price, which is said to be at US $490.
What the Ascend P6 Has to Offer
Aside from being billed as the slimmest ever Smartphone at only 6.22 mm, the Ascend P6 also comes with an impressive 4.7-inch touchscreen display. The capacitive multi touchscreen offers a pixel resolution of 720 by 1,280. Furthermore, the mobile device is powered by Huawei’s very own 1.5 GHz processor as well as an accelerometer. Some of the other technologies incorporated into the Smartphone include proximity, temperature, gyro, and compass sensors. It also comes with a built-in FM radio. Both Glonass and A-GPS are also supported by the Smartphone.
One of the most noteworthy aspects of the Huawei Ascend P6 is the enhanced responsiveness of its capacitive multi touchscreen display. In the previous models, this was actually a problem, which is why it is a very welcome improvement. The device also runs on Huawei’s very own Emotion User Interface (UI). Apart from the UI offering better security, other new features are also included, such as the camera app’s facial recognition and panoramic shots.
The camera is another area that the Ascend P6 is expected to excel in. The rear snapper, while only offering 8 megapixels, comes with a built in LED flash as well as an autofocus feature. The overall resolution of the back camera is 3,264 by 2,248 pixels. Smile detection, geotagging, face detection, and the above mentioned facial recognition as well as panoramic shot features are some of what you can expect from the Smartphone’s camera app. The camera at the front has a resolution of 5 megapixels – significantly higher than those of many of today’s high-end brands. The front camera can also shoot HD videos in 720 resolutions.
Final Thoughts on the Ascend P6
As you can see, the Huawei Ascend P6 does have qualities that will make it compete with other high-end Smartphones, especially those from Apple and Samsung. If you are in need of a main phone for your business, you definitely would want to first look into other more renowned services, such as the RingCentral phone systems. This, plus the Ascend P6, may just be the right combination for your business to have a more effective business telecoms system.
