Does Huawei Finally Have a Phone You Might Actually Want to Buy?

Normally associated with budget chubsters Huawei's latest Ascend P6 is anything but fat. At just 6.18mm thick, it's the thinnest Android out there, but is being the most anorexic phone enough?

Under the hood, the microscopic waste line has taken its toll. A 1.5GHz quad-core CPU backed up by 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage forms its beating heart, with a 4.7-inch 720p screen for a face. Unfortunately there's no LTE here, and the battery is just 2000mAh, which means you'll have to keep a charger handy.

A rear 8MP camera coupled with a 5MP front-snapper round out the spec list with your usual Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microSD, and Android 4.2.2. So, nothing special on the inside, then, just its svelte frame that stands it apart. It'll probably be cheap, and available from pretty much everywhere in the UK. So, if you're looking for something skinny and not an HTC, Sony or Samsung, then maybe, just maybe, Huawei's got something for you? [Huawei]
