have been using my p6 for about 4 months now. so far performed very well & I am being honest about my comment. though battery life need further improvement if huawei does plan a replacement model for p6. camera is awesome 8mp back & 5mp front = best in its category even out smart many others popular korean model! price tag + performance = very good buy! if you dont mind using a chinese made brand name!

Huawei Ascend P6 gets Android 4.4 KitKat in January

Huawei Ascend P6 was announced and released in June with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in charge of operations. Due to its incredibly slim profile and older generation quad-core processor, it was plagued with over-heating issues. We are not sure if those were resolved by Huawei, but if not, now is a good time for the company to make some optimizations and improvements.
The Huawei Ascend P6 was just officially confirmed to get the Android 4.4 KitKat treatment. The Chinese have taken it to Baidu to announce that the super slim smartphone will be getting the latest major Android release in January. Alongside it will come the new version of the company's proprietary Emotion UI.
Huawei is among the first to announce its KitKat upgrade plans, but is surely not the only one to skip Android 4.3 and move straight to the new KitKat version.
Android 4.4 KitKat was announced on the last day of October. It brings Project Svelte UI optimizations, bigger UI icons, removes the widgets from the app drawer, new Hangouts SMS/MMS/Gtalks unified hub, new Email app, new Phone app with nearby search and more. It even lowers the hardware requirements for the Android OS.
And the Ascend P6 owners will be able to enjoy all of these new features in just two months.
I hope Huawei will launch the international version in next months MWC with some changes for good .
And some info about KitKat update, for you non-believers ;) http://huaweinews.com/2014/01/ascend-p6-emotionui-2-3/
Steve, 22 Jan 2014Seems Huawei actually made the "updated" P6 S worse than the original P6! They m... morerelax. this is version for China unicom only. International version will come with sd card slot and updated GPU Mali - 450mp4. even the first P6 for china came with dual sim, no card slot. For us in europe and rest of the world they will made another verson of P6
Huawei promised to upgrade the pervious version Ascend P6 with Andorid 4.4kitkat but still no update and when it was asked the Huawei customer service they advise that even they are Not sure upon this ...really its strange ! So why should we go for P6S ???
Seems Huawei actually made the "updated" P6 S worse than the original P6!
They made the P6 S thicker, kept the poor camera and weak battery and, worst of all, ditched the card slot. For what? 0.1 Ghz higher CPU clock?
Worst update ever.
Do Not buy P6S. Buy Huawei P6, more slimer AND costs less. Everything else ARE EXACTLY THE SAME.
