Cheaper than iPhone: What does a $499 smartphone get you?

While Huawei isn’t exactly a household name in mobile phones, their new $499 smartphone might be of interest if you're on a budget. So what do you get?

While Huawei isn’t exactly a household name in mobile phones, their new $499 smartphone might be of interest if you want smartphone features but you're on a budget.

Billed as the “world’s thinnest smartphone” at only 6.18mm thin, the Huawei Ascend P6 goes on sale on July 15 and comes with some impressive features under the hood for a fairly modest $499 price tag:

  • The smartphone sports a 4.7-inch 720P display
  • a 1.5Ghz quad core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • Internal storage is fairly low at only 8GB but can be easily expanded via a Micro-SD card slot
  • While we very rarely see smartphones go beyond 2MP for the front facing camera, Huawei has equipped the handset with a 5MP capable camera to go along with an 8MP rear facing camera.
  • Huawei also claims that the touch screen will respond to touch input even while the user is wearing gloves.
