Some of you might be wondering exactly where Huawei came from. Well, founded in 1988 in China, just north of Hong Kong, Huawei is now a company that turned over $34 billion in 2012. When it comes to smartphones, it sold 11.2 million of them at the end of 2012 - only Samsung and Apple sold more globally. Working with all of the top 50 mobile operators worldwide, with 150,000 employees in 140 countries across the globe, Huawei is a huge international company that's just beginning to make it big in the UK. As it holds 23,000 patents, and ranks number 3 for patent applications, its technology is advanced, and only getting better for the future.
Huawei...but how do I say it?
Huawei is actually pronounced 'wah-way' - and here's a fun video to prove it:
The Huawei Ascend P6 is one of the world's thinnest smartphones at just 6.18mm, while the aluminium frame and body is elegant and ultra premium. Mixing metal with a 4.7" touchscreen made of Gorilla Glass 2 also means it's tough. Underneath the body is a quad core processor, so it's got plenty of power, and with brand new software it can do anything you want. Cameras? There's an advanced 8MP shooter on the back, and a high spec 5MP front facing camera too.
Nothing is as premium as metal when it comes to smartphones, which is why Huawei made the Ascend P6 out of lightweight and strong aluminium. The design is beautiful. The same can be said for the 4.7" touchscreen too. The large screen is easy to use one handed thanks to the phone's slim 6.18mm body, and at 720p HD, it's razor sharp, perfect for HD content, gaming, web surfing and catching up with photos on Facebook.
Taking photos on a smartphone is now a part of everyday life, and with the Huawei Ascend P6 you'll be able to take some great photos. With a wide aperture of 2.0, the camera has been designed to let more light into the lens, meaning low light shots always come out brilliantly. It also comes with an HDR feature. This is a mode that is used for when you have a bright background, such as taking a photo into the sun. HDR takes three photos at different exposures, so you get a perfect shot. It's also great for close ups, and because it records videos in 1080p HD, home movies are a real possibility.
A typical front facing camera is 1.3MP, or perhaps even 2MP. But the Ascend P6 has a whopping 5MP front facing camera, and it shows. You'll get great quality self-portraits, be able to take part in super crisp HD video calls, and even make movies of yourself and be able to see exactly what they'll look like at the same time.
A processor that has more than one core is designed to carry out more than one task at once. This means you can play music, download movies all while responding to emails or text messages. Quad core processors are also extremely powerful for high demand tasks. So, if you want to play 3D games or convert high definition footage, you'll be wanting all the power a quad core can offer.
If you're a fan of making your smartphones yours, the Huawei Ascend P6 has you covered. Open up the Themes app and you're free to completely change the look of the screens in your phone. There are hundreds of themes to choose from, and each is unique. There are also some really nice touches. Get bored of your background easily? Just shake your P6 and another random background will be applied.
Despite its super slim body, the Huawei Ascend P6 still has a 2,000mAh battery crammed inside it. But that's not all that makes the P6 last as long as you need it to. There's also the advanced battery Power Manager app, which lets you choose different power plans just like on a laptop, and even check to see how much battery time you've got left for different tasks, such as whether you've enough power left to watch that movie. Want to know which app is using more of your battery power? You can check up on your apps, and even turn off ones that are particularly power hungry.
Sometimes you know exactly what settings you want to be turned on and off, but it'll take a few seconds to change everything. This is where Profiles come in. You can set a Profile so that the screen is set to a certain brightness, the Wi-Fi is on, the GPS off, the volume up and vibrate off, and much more. Now, if you go into a meeting, select the Meeting profile. Need to use your phone as your GPS and music hub in the car, create Car profile. It'll save you bags of time.
If your budget is a little tighter, there's also the Huawei Ascend Y300. With its sharp 4" screen, 5MP camera and fast 1GHz dual core processor, it packs some impressive features in a smooth and sturdy shell creating the best value smartphone on the market. We've seen it play 3D games like Deadspace it's so powerful, and the screen is bright and sharp, so web surfing is easy, and it makes a great internet TV. With apps like Netflix and the BBC iPlayer, there's plenty of content to choose from. The Ascend Y300 also has access to the 850,000 apps in the Google Play™ Store, so if you need an app or game, it's almost definitely there.
