HUAWEI ASCEND G6 4G
If you’ve seen the Ascend P6 or the P7, then you wouldn’t be surprised with the design of the Ascend G6 4G. What you’ll immediately notice is Huawei’s signature curve at the bottom of the device, which breaks tradition from the typical flattened end and helps give it a unique look.
This deliberate design element has its cons though; the charging port has been shifted to the top while the 3.5mm audio output jack has been moved to the bottom left. This means that the connector will protrude out from the side and makes slipping the phone into pockets a tricky affair.
Holding the Ascend G6 4G in the hands will make one realize that the device is really quite light. In fact, it is the lightest among the six phones at 115g. Despite its lightweight form factor, the Ascend G6 4G still feels sturdy. The build material is plastic, but the sides have a brushed metal finish that feels good and adds a premium touch to the phone. It also helps that the back plate is matte, which means a more assuring grip.
Contrary to its looks, the back plate is actually removable although the battery is not. Located to the right of the embedded battery are the microSD and microSIM card slots. The microSD memory card slot can only support cards of up to 32GB though, bringing the total storage capacity of the Ascend G6 4G to 40GB.
The Ascend G6 4G ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a custom interface known as Emotion UI 2.0. Unlike the typical Android interface, Emotion UI does not have an app drawer; it adopts an iOSlike concept where apps sit on the home screen.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core 1.2GHz chipset and 1GB RAM kept the show running smoothly on the Ascend G6 4G as we did not encounter any stutters or lags.
Similar to the Desire 816 and G2 Mini, the Ascend G6 4G supports LTE CAT 4 where you can expect maximum download and upload speeds of 150Mbps and 50Mbps respectively.
Slim design. Good
Awkward headphone jack placement. Battery life could be better.
