This summer, the Chinese company Huawei has started selling smartphone Ascend P6s . Already from the name it should be understood that the origin was the last year we were familiar Ascend P6. Anyway, apparently P6 and Huawei Ascend P6s very similar, but the “iron” is a little different. The main special feature is the ability to work with two sim-cards thanks to two separate radio modules.

Design, size, controls
Most of the positive reviews I wrote in the review of Huawei P6, and my opinion has not changed. The device turned out really very best from all points of view: adequate cost, nice design, slim body and quite good performance. Basically, if you want to know more about the appearance of the Huawei Ascend P6s, you should read the review at the link below.
The smartphone has a similar appearance Huawei Ascend P6s, but with one caveat – the rear socket is no longer a metal, and plastic. Of course, there is nothing wrong, however, let’s say, the premium a little lost. Probably, such a move has been made in view of the active sales Ascend P7.For example, I would have reasoned thus: why take the fragile glass P7, if there is less sturdy metal Huawei Ascend P6s, even with the worst performance characteristics? In general, the truth, we still do not dig.
The front side is protected by glass Gorilla Glass. A couple of weeks of active use of it not a single scratch. Oleophobic surface is covered with a layer, so fingerprints are practically invisible. Finger across the screen to slide freely. In addition, it seems to me, in the display is anti-glare layer Huawei Ascend P6s: the surroundings reflected poorly.
Left, top and right according to Kant goes wide steel frame with longitudinal grinding. In front of her and behind her are two plastic inserts.Of semi-gloss plastic made rear socket. It comes to the front side.
We have to review the gadget was black, but sales there and white version. If choosing a device, you would have bought a light, as it is less than seen all sorts of stains.
Oh yeah, did not mention the dimensions. They are extremely compact. Compare with last year’s gadget:
- Huawei Ascend P6: 132.7 x 65.5 x 6.2 mm, weight – 120 grams
- Huawei Ascend P6s: 132.6 x 65.5 x 6.5 mm, weight – 120 grams
Assembled unit is excellent, although the back cover and become plastic. It does not bend to the battery, do not play and does not crackle.Well done Huawei, solid five!
In his hand Ascend P6s is good thanks to the adequate size. However, I would have moved form the lower edge of the top and the top down. I like the sloping angles, like the iPhone. However, a matter of taste.
Once again, that the appearance of the detailed account in the review of P6, «copy-paste” will not;)
Voice speaker is located in the same place where he was accustomed to seeing. It is covered by fine dark mesh. Volume slightly above average, but the clarity is great, the interlocutor can hear clearly. Pleasant timbre, not boomy. You also hear well.
The right of the speaker is the front camera, and the left – light sensors / approximation and indicator for missed events. The main microphone below the additional – on top, next to – micro-USB connector. Bottom left 3.5 mm jack plug and steel guttaperchivaya (and you have already lost :))
Right lot of interesting things: the power button and the button-volume rocker (they are practically recessed, thin, mild depression, stroke average), two slots for simkarty standard micro.
Located behind the camera module, a recessed and framed by a metal ring, flash, and below – the speakerphone is on.
Nice unit in terms of tactile sensations, and ergonomics design has not pumped.
Screen size summer trends remained the same, with respect to Huawei P6 – 4.7 inches with the physical dimensions 58h103 mm. Frame bottom – 16 mm, above – 13 mm, left and right – are thin enough to 3mm.
Display resolution is also not increased, so have to settle for the usual HD (720×1280 pixels). Again, it is worth remembering that the company already has FullHD smartphone Ascend P7. Density screen Huawei Ascend P6s – 312 pixels per inch. Naturally, the individual pixels here you will not see, of course, if you do not flee to the loop or microscope.
Matrix is powered by technology, IPS. Quality, in my opinion, good, at least, wide viewing angles, the picture is not distorted, and the colors do not become purple and yellow hues. Bit lacking richness and juiciness. In the settings there is an option “Color Temperature”, but I would not suggest there’s nothing “cool” because it only gets worse.
The brightness is slightly above the average of the matrix, it is enough to work in the light. In the sun, as always, the picture fades slightly, but the information remains readable.
The sensitivity of the sensor layer is great, as is supported by work gloves.
The phone has a removable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery capacity of 2000 mAh. Exactly the same standing in P6.
Smartphone Huawei Ascend P6s«live» 12-13 hours as follows: 20 minutes of calls, about 7 o’clock in 3G (background refresh mail, twitter, etc.), 3-4 hours of active compound in a 3G (views of sites, reading Twitter, mail, and so on) for about an hour photographing.
Fans watch the video you can count on 4.5 hours: maximum brightness, the maximum volume on the headphones.
The smartphone works in networks GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), HSDPA (850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz). Speed HSDPA – 21 Mbit / s, HSUPA – 5.76 Mbit / s, EDGE – 236 kbit / s, GPRS 32-48 kbit / s. Of the fourth (4G LTE) in the generation of this model, alas, no.
Quote from the official source:
“An important addition to the Ascend P6S is support for two SIM cards – making it convenient in cases where it is necessary to use two mobile numbers at the same time: on trips abroad, combined work and personal phones, etc.
The smartphone is equipped with two active radio, so both SIM cards are always active. You will be able to receive calls simultaneously on both cards, and Internet connection on one card will not be interrupted during a conversation on the other. “
I confirm the above.
There is a Bluetooth version 3.0 with A2DP and EDR. Module Wi-Fi (802.11 a / b / g / n) support DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) – a standard that allows compatible devices to transmit and receive on your home network various media content (images, music, video), and display it in real time.
Memory, memory card
The smartphone Huawei Ascend P6suse 2 GB of RAM. Of this amount is available in an average of 1 GB of RAM.
Built-in memory to 16 GB for the user given about 11.8 GB Flash. The memory card slot is not provided, other versions of devices with a lot of “flash” unavailable.
This device uses two camera modules. Basic – 8 MP, front at 5 MP. It seemed to me, optics remains the same here, did not notice any peculiarities. Therefore, in good conscience refer you to the review of the camera Huawei Ascend P6s:
Characteristics of the video recorded on the main camera:
- Format: MP4
- Video: AVC, 20 Mbit / s
- Resolution: 1920×1080, 30 frames / second
- Audio: AAC, 96 kbit / s
- Channels: 2 channels, 48 KHz
In the gadget from the Huawei uses a chip of its own production HiSilicon Balong V9R1 (Kirin 910). Online little information about it, but the bottom line is that in V9R1 quad Cortex-A9 (28 nm), working with such a frequency of 1.6 GHz. As a graphics accelerator performs Mali-450 MP4.
The device operates smoothly, no glitches. You can play any game – they go without problems. Strange, but the plate on the same chip I shamelessly inhibited.
The device works under the direction of Google Android operating system version 4.4.2. As the shell – a proprietary Emotion UI 2.3. For more details you can read the review of Huawei Ascend P7:
I really like the user interface. Designers, in my opinion, correctly made themes: like icons flat, but with shadows and feel the volume.Effects of smooth and pleasant. The most important thing is that there is no gadget mikrolagi.
Music player. After starting the appropriate application on the screen, the following icons:
- All songs
- Overview compositions
If you open one of the songs, the display will show the album art and control the player. Top is a button that is responsible for the activation of the effect of DTS. The headphone volume is high, the quality I liked it, it sounds good. Perhaps a little lacking bass, but the mid and high excellent. The speaker volume is slightly above average. Due to the thickness of the body to place a large speaker difficult.
FM-radio. As always, it was hidden in the folder “Tools.” Plug in the earphones, they act as the antenna. The radio is in the range 87.5 – 108 MHz. Above shows the frequency of the station, at the bottom – the scale, even lower control radio (station back, forward, stop, and play). You can store up to 8 “their” stations, listen to the sound to the speaker and see a list of stations.
Video player. No single program, all the videos are in the “Gallery”. Device understands videos in a format MP4, AVI, 3GP. Resolution can be up to 1920×1200 pixels, bit small, otherwise a sagging frame.
I have quite a lot of times used the word “comfort” in relation to Huawei Ascend P6s, so again I can say that this smartphone is really very pleasant to use. Dimensions are so compact that the unit will fit in any summer trousers or jeans. Telephone easy to operate, since the shell is simple and intuitive. From a functional point of view, I have no questions all just as much now asking for it in retail (11 000 – 12 000 rubles). A pre-order as I know, the novelty could “grab” at the company store for 9990 rubles.
In general, I recommend!
