With the navigation keys moved over to the screen, the things to note at the front of the Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 are above the 4.7" IPS+ LCD. There's a status Light Emitting Diode (LED) and sensors left of the earpiece and a 5MP front capturing camera on the right.

Yep, that's a five megapixel capturing camera up there and Huawei is really proud of its front-facer. It's a fixed focus unit, but one that does some remarkable portrait shots and has the Beauty Face option available. It also shoots 720p videos @ 30fps. We'll acquire into more detail there in the capturing camera chapter of the review.





Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6's front

In terms of controls, we've got a pretty crowded correct side with a Power/Lock key and a volume rocker, followed by microSIM and microSD card slots compartments. These are small trays that hold an eject pin to open.

Now, as far as we know, there is also a regionally available Dual SIM version of the Ascdiscontinue P6. In the dual SIM case, both metallic trays accommodate SIM cards and there is no microSD slot. To create up for that, the dual SIM version comes with 16GB of storage instead of only 8GB.





The correct side of the Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6

The eject pin is inserted into the 3.5mm audio jack on the left-hand side of the device - that's an unusual solution, but we can see the point: that way the eject tool is always available and it also protects the port from getting filled with dust.

On the other hand though, one risks misplacing the eject tool every time they need to plug a headset -the tiny piece is really easy to lose.

The top of the Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 accommodates the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port and the secondary microphone, which is used for active noise cancellation in calls.

Across at the bottom, the primary microphone is the only thing of interest.

The 8 megapixel capturing camera lens is placed in the top left corner of phone's back. The single-LED flash is next to it too. The discrete loudspeaker grille is in the bottom left corner.

The Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 comes with a nice rubber case in the box that tightly wraps around the handset. The case is transparent so the phone's fine looks aren't sacrificed and it will do a nice job of keeping it safe. It inevitably adds to the thickness though.

The Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 is powered by a 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery. The phone scored a very reasonable 46-hour rating in our real-life battery test. The moderately-sized classy screen and the energy-efficient chipset might actually deserve the credit for this fine performance. Find the complete breakdown here.


Display

The Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 has a 4.7" IPS+ Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) of 720p resolution. This works out to a pixel density of 312ppi, which is almost the same as what the Apple iPhone 5 has.

The Ascdiscontinue P6 offers wide viewing angles with no color shift and small contrast loss when you view the display at an angle. The colors are spot on, the contrast is remarkable and generally we are very pleased with the image quality.

The classy screen brightness control in the Android notification area is a single virtual key with four steps: Automatic, 100%, 50% and 0% brightness. There's no brightness slider as in competing Android devices.

Hidden further down in the Display settings, there is an additional Smart Backlight toggle - this could be enabled to assure the automatic brightness control doesn't do rapid jumps when adjusting the illumination level. If switched on, the Ascdiscontinue P6 will calculate the next light transition point in a colorful lighting environment and maintain a gradient brightness variation .

Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 classy screen under a microscope

The Huawei Ascdiscontinue P6 also offers the rare option to adjust the screen's color temperature. It's a slider that gives you control on whether the classy screen has a cooler or warmer (blue vs. amber) tint.

Finally, the 4.7" IPS 720p touchclassy screen is also highly sensitive thanks to the Magic Touch tech, which allows you to utilize it even with gloves, a feature that will surely come in handy in crecent weather.
