The Ascend P6S is more of the same
Huawei has announced the Ascend P6S whilst the original Ascend P6 is still on sale. There is not a lot of difference at all between the two smartphones and coupled with the fact the all new Huawei Ascend P7 (with 4G) is arriving in April, it seems a strange move to us.
3G.co.uk reviewed the Huawei Ascend P6 way back in July last year when our reviewer commented “There are just too many negatives. Lack of 4G and NFC, awkward keyboard, pain in the rear accelerometer, and the bizarrely positioned headphone jack”.
We don’t see where the company is going with the Huawei Ascend P6S as it runs on the same Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 2.0 laid on top and the same 4.7 inch 720p display. In fact, the specification is virtually the same as the original P6.
The Ascend P6S comes with the same : 8 megapixel main camera, 5 megapixel secondary camera, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of on-board memory. Just like the Ascend P6 there is no 4G, no NFC and not a lot to make the P6S stand out over the P6.
The only real change is an upgrade from a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor to a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor which will make it wizz along a bit quicker.
The Huawei Ascend P6S is rumoured to launch in the first half of 2014 and is priced at under £250. Our advice would be wait for the 4G enabled Huawei Ascend P7 which will cost more but should prove way much better than the P6S.
