The phone includes the Huawei EmotionUI which offers downloadable themes and other customisations. As on previous Huawei devices you can effectively turn off the themes, reverting to a stock Android look and feel.

Huawei uploaded a special video about the Huawei Ascend P6 to youtube:

Several funky looking cases will be available to buy when the device is launched and come in a wide range of colours.

The P6 will be available to buy in August at just under £400 SIM free in the UK and it's expected to be available from £25 per month on mobile contracts provided by 3, Carphone Warehouse, Everything Everywhere, Talk Talk, and Vodafone.

I'm kind of looking for a new phone (I ordered the Oppo Find 5, but they failed to ship it and I cancelled the order), so I'll wait for a review; also, waiting for more info about Huawei's update policy. The price isn't bad, but it isn't cheap either.

My current device is a Galaxy Note (the first one), but Samsung is really annoying with the updates, so probably my next phone won't be a Samsung anymore (I'm still on 4.0.4 because they didn't release the update to 4.1.x in my country).

That said though asbro, at least you can flash another countries update to your device, you won't find anyone updating much more regularly than Samsung!

As far as price/performance tradeoff goes, its a far cry from the Nexus 4...
