As of the date of posting this comment, my Ascend P6 is approximately 2 years and 5 months old.
It has worked satisfactorily with occasional instances of the device getting uncomfortably hot, but not to the extent of overheating when more power intensive apps are executed, such as YouTube & Waze.
However, about a month ago while I was attempting to use Waze as usual to obtain directions to a location, the system issued a warning that the device was getting too hot and some phone functions may be disabled/not work properly (can't remember the exact wording).
In fear for my physical safety, I switched off the device and was left to rely on my not-so-recent memory of the correct directions to my intended destination.
Although the time of this incident is in the afternoon in Malaysia where the temperature could be at 31 degrees celcius, I was operating an appropriately air-conditioned vehicle and should as such be reassured that the phone would not heat up to this extent (of disability of certain phone functionality).
I hope my case-specific opinion will provide a refreshing perspective on the commonly noticed issue of excessive heating for existing and potential owners.
Its the worst phone. I did a lot of research for this phone before buying it but still in my life it was a regret. battery very weak. and the biggest disappointment that in spite a lot of care even it looks new in hands, it shows no signal sometime. and a lot of times in emergency i couldnt call from it which was a shame for me. never buy this phone please. its just a show piece.
G, 23 Mar 2016Bought in 2013, still using it, great phone. Would like to go for P9, but the P6 still works ... morethe only one reason i have to replace this phone is...this phone doesn't have LTE connection.

Mohamed Aden, 28 Apr 2016Bought in January 2014. Worst battery life and performance. Battery drops quickly when in stan... moreSeems to have better than average everything.
Doesn't heat up like said. Battery is good long lasting day and a half. Bought phone for the Fi usage. Very happy SP far with the phone.
Bought in January 2014. Worst battery life and performance. Battery drops quickly when in stand-by. Charging time sometimes gets slow and drops down sometimes by up to 1-2% while charging during use. Gets extremely hot as well.
Now after 2 years and 3 months, I switched to Galaxy A7 (2016 edition) earlier this month. My new phone now has better battery life, better performance, fast charging and beautiful display. I suggest never to buy Huawei again unless you try it out first!!!
Burnt fingers , 23 Dec 2015Decent performance , massive overheating issue while in use, left me with a set of burnt fingertips.The overheating 'problem' is greatly exaggerated, the phone will get bit warm sometimes but not exactly what you would call hot.
Bought in 2013, still using it, great phone.
Would like to go for P9, but the P6 still works fine so no reason to replace it yet.
Hmmmm, i dont think so..... Ive got LG Nexus 4 second hand and i can say: its 100 times better than huawei P6 and it has very similar specs..... i compared it with huawei P6 and it was way way faster.... sooo.... dont be 100% sure in your opinion. Thanks
