Huawei is slowly making its way into the North American market. Their entry level Ascend Y300 is one of the best $100 phones you can find and now they have something a little higher end to offer up. The Ascend P6 is now available at WIND and can be picked up outright at the reasonable cost of $400. You can also throw it on a $40 WINDTab to get the cost down to $149 or a $30 WINDTab to get the cost down to $299. Here are the specs for this guy:
4.7″ 720p IPS Display
1.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
8GB Internal Storage
MicroSD Card Slot
5MP Front Facing Camera (And no, that’s not a typo! It’s a 5MP Front Facing Camera!)
Not bad eh? Pretty decent phone and a beautiful design. The design features “a diamond-cut metal frame and metallic back plate” : no plastic here! In addition to the premium material choice, this phone comes in at a crazy thin 6.18mm. In fact, it actually held the thinnest phone title for a short while and WIND is still marketing it as the “thinnest superphone”!
I know many of you will exclaim that the Nexus 5 is a better option, and I’d definitely agree with you, but this is a good option nonetheless.
