If you’re a shameless fashionista (it appears some PM readers actually give a damn about their appearance) in search of a classy smartphone, you’re sure to appreciate Huawei’s latest handset, the Ascend P6. Measuring just 6,18 mm thick, it gives ramp models a run for their money in the slim stakes. Inside its sleek metallic body (available in black or white) you’ll find a 1,5 GHz quad-core processor and an Android 4.2.2 operating system. The 2 000 mAh battery features power-saving technology that’s said to improve its performance by more than 30 per cent compared with other batteries of equal size.
Moving on to the extrinsics, you’ll be impressed by the 11,9 cm HD LCD screen, featuring “Magic-Touch” technology for enhanced responsiveness, even when wearing gloves. There’s a 5 MP front-facing camera that boasts auto facial enhanced capabilities, so you can take “selfies” you’re definitely going to want to share. The rear-facing 8 MP camera features an f2.0 aperture lens and a 4 cm macro view, allowing you to capture great HD stills or video. Price: about R5 000. Visit www.huawei-device.co.za
