Huawei Ascend G6 review

The Ascend G6 focuses on low price, 4G and the selfie

A 4G handset which doesn't cost the earth

While the front-facing selfie camera might get most of the attention, the rear-facing 8MP snapper isn't bad either and Huawei has given you the standard Android settings to play with, plus a few others.

The beauty scale slider is still here, so you can theoretically make your friends as attractive as you are. There's also HDR shooting and the choice of a few different filters like sepia or negative.

Huawei Ascend G6 review

The Huawei Ascend G6 will shoot at up to 3,264 x 2,448 pixels with the rear-facing camera and also boasts autofocus and LED flash for dark environments.

You can geo-tag each picture as well as employ face detection of panorama mode for those sweeping vistas. It'll also shoot video as high as 720p HD.

Close-up shots are detailed, but lens placement means you can occasionally capture your fingers in the top left corner

It takes time to capture and compile a panaoramic image, and the finished image is bright but lacks detail
