I'm the proud owner of this phone since last week, and I must say that I'm very satisfied about this one.
Even though it's an so-called budgetphone from a not-so-well-known facturer, it just gives you all you have paid for.
My experience so far is that the system works good, it works flawless. It has some nice options for saving battery and it even tells you which apps are energy-drainers. This way you can close them. Also a nice option to manage background apps.
I'm not very common with other (newer)phones, since my previous one was the HTC one V, but this is seriously a big improvement and the extra options make me very satisfied.
The camera is very nice. The camera played an important role in my choice for a new phone. That this phone has a 5.0mp frontcamera, really gave this one a big boost in my decision. After testing both the camera's, I must say that they're both to my likings. They make beautiful pictures. I was especially surprised with the quality of the back-camera pictures, as they're very sharp and detailed. Even after I opened it on my computer.
But, even though this phone has my love already, there's also a point I'm slightly dissappointed about. And that's the autocorrect. Not that it's so aggresive that I can't type anything without the phone correcting it, no - the exact opposite. It doesn't correct anything, nor does it give suggestions. All my words are red underlined as though they're all wrong. It seems that this came with a system update and emotion UI not working correctly with it, but I really hope to see this fixed soon. Until then, I will just manually add all the words to my dictionary, hoping that after a few months I have covered my whole language.
As for the battery, in my opinion it drains slightly faster than my previous HTC. This is not strange since the phone is a bit bigger with better processor and so on. Though, it still lasts a whole day. I hope to improve the batterylife through the right methods. But for now my opinion on the battery is OK.
And I must make a small note on the warmth of the processor. I've felt that the back of the phone warms up a little after some use. Not weird, the phone is rather flat so you'll feel the warmth earlier and also the warmth of your hands will reflect on the appliance itself. But one of the main-points in a review I've read is that the processors tends to overheat during excessive use. So, heavier apps like navigation and so on, wil warm the phone up a lot. I for one, did not yet experience this, since I'm using my phone for the lighter stuff such as social media, internet and photo's.
Overall, I'm very delighted with this phone. All phones come with pros and cons, it's just a matter of choice. For this one: you get more than you pay for.
I've never been this SATISFIED. this is the best phone i ever got. the value for money is awesome. i don't care if this is not as famous as the other smartphones in the market but i can say that this has a very good performance. battery life is improving everyday. display is awesome. and the best part is the audio.. and ehem... this is still the slimmest smartphone in the world in quadcore. :))

Mani, 26 Sep 2013Can Any one tell Me that battery life of Ascend P6 is better than Galaxy S3 or Not?Yes it is better. I have a friend who charges his S3 twice a day while I'm charging my P6 every 1 1/2 - 2 days, for the same amount of usage.
