After spending a little time with the Ascend P6 getting it set up with our accounts and apps, we have to say we're quite impressed with the build quality. This is a big step up over some of its offerings last year, and even over what it announced just at CES in January. It is incredibly thin and relatively light as well, without feeling cheap or flimsy and the use of different metals along with small plastic accents is quite nice. The display also looks crisp and bright despite only being 720p (although the resolution is quite acceptable at 4.7-inches), and the device is overall refreshingly small compared to the ballooning sizes of recent handsets.

This thing is going places. Huawei is advertising it all over the country on national TV here in The Netherlands, and it's being pushed by retail chains. The next Samsung won't be American or European, but Chinese.

Huawei are quite sloppy with Android updates. The Ascend G600 - a decent mid-range phone released 6 months after Jelly Bean runs on Ice Cream Sandwich.
And it will not be receiving any updates.

The Chinese made iPhone is of course completely backdoor free.

yeah because Apple doesn't work with the NSA...whoops wait,

I think everyone will just need to assume that all providers are now working with a government agency of some kind. US, UK, Germany, China etc..
