The Huawei P6 is one of the most gorgeous Android handsets in the Kenyan Smartphone market. Huawei has the Midas touch, and you just have to use the Huawei Ascend P6 to believe in the innovation of the Chinese Tech Giant.
Everything about the Huawei Ascend W1 ‘screams’ premium and you just have to dig on that. I am convinced that the P6 is the best mid-range android device in the Kenyan Smartphone market.
Here is a quick review of the Huawei Ascend P6 and its price in Kenya.
The Huawei Ascend P6 has a 4.7 inches IPS capacitive touch screen. The P6 has screen dimensions of 720 x 1280 and a screen resolution density of 321 ppi. The display is vibrant with natural colors and you can almost equate it to that of the Sony Xperia Z1 compact.
Body and Design
The Huawei P6 has a 132.7 x 65.5 x 6.2 mm frame and weighs in at just 120g. One of the ‘sexiest’ aspects of the P6 is its svelte design. I mean you feel Goosebumps by just looking at it. The brushed metal finish looks and feels awesome.
The P6 feels solid, and there is the notable absence of creaky parts characteristics of handsets with polycarbonate constructions. In short, the Huawei Ascend P6 is just the phone that shouts ‘Hey people, I have money!’ when you pull it out in public.
This baby has a 1.5 GHz Quad-core CPU and a solid 2GB of RAM. The nerd stats of the Huawei P6 are much like Samsung’s flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S4. With that, you have to agree that the Huawei Ascend P6 is a beauty with brains.
The Ascend P6 comes in variants of 8/16 GB variants. Additionally, the P6 has a MicroSD slot that supports up to a 32GB Micro SD card. However, it is worthwhile to note that the card slot is available for the single SIM version but missing in the Dual SIM version.
The Huawei P6 has the standard 3G internet connectivity and WI-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.
The P6 has an 8MP camera that captures images at a max resolution of 3264×2448 pixels. This is the upper mid-range camera size. The camera captures images of decent quality while under moderate lighting conditions.
One of the fascinating features of the P6 is its 5MP front facing camera. That’s huge! Most of the flagship devices spot a max of a 2MP front facing camera. The Huawei P6 is thus perfect for the selfie enthusiast or if you are a big fan Skype Video Calls
The Huawei Ascend P6 has a 2000mAh battery. This is a larger than life battery and is a perfect match to the above average specs of the Ascend P6.
You can further optimize the battery life by fiddling with the Automated Discontinuous Reception, and Quick Power Control features that come inbuilt with the device.

The Huawei Ascend P6 is an awesome phone. It has implemented Sony’s intuitive design concepts and a bit of Samsung’s quirky features.
Finding a decent mid-range device is a huge struggle. The Huawei Ascend P6 bridges this gap and is worth a second look.
