Description

The Huawei Ascend P6 is the new slimmest smartphone, with an awe-inspiring thickness of only 6.18 millimeters. (June 18 – we see what you did there, Huawei.) But even though it is so impressively slim, the Ascend P6 has quite a lot of goodies packed under its hood. Inside the sleek metallic body of the Huawei Ascend P6 ticks a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. There is a 4.7-inch LCD touchscreen with HD resolution gracing its front – 1280 by 720 pixels, we assume. Huawei notes that an in-cell touch display has been used, which are known for their slimness. The 8-megapixel main camera can capture macro shots from as close as 4 centimeters, while the front-facing 5MP shooter ensures that your self-portraits will look as good as they should. And although there is a decent 2000mAh battery tucked behind its back plate, the Huawei Ascend P6 weighs a mere 120 grams.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
