Huawei might not be the most popular smartphone brand, but it is still a solid choice. Even better, you usually get reasonably capable specs for considerably less than the competition.

With that in mind, consumers in the UK can now get their hands on Huawei’s latest flagship, the Ascend P6. The phone officially touched down last Friday, bringing with it an incredibly thin 6.18mm form factor, a 4.7-inch 720p display and a Huawei K3V2 1.5GHz quad-core processor.

Other specs include 2GB RAM, 8GB storage, microSD expansion, a 5MP front cam, 8MP rear cam, 2000 mAh battery and the power of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 1.6.

The big question is whether the P6 really has what it takes to stand out against its rivals in the Android world. We suppose time will tell.

The Ascend P6 can be found at various price points or even for free, depending on whether or not you are willing to sign a contract. If you’d rather buy the device outright, O2 is apparently offering the handset for £300 or roughly $447.96. The P6 can also be found through other carriers including Vodafone and TalkTalk.

Huawei has big hopes for its new flagship device, with a lofty goal of shipping 10 million units by the end of this year. The big question is whether the P6 really has what it takes to stand out against its rivals in the Android world. We suppose time will tell.

So how about it, anyone willing to give the Ascend P6 a try over a better-known brand like Samsung, HTC or Sony?
