Deal: £240 Huawei Ascend P6 smartphone

It was only announced two months ago and yet, in around sixty days, the price of the Huawei Ascend P6, the world's thinnest smartphone according to its manufacturer, has dropped without notice by a third from £360 to £340.

Both Amazon and Carphone Warehouse list the phone at this price making it arguably the best value-for-money smartphone on the market.

Its main selling point is its thickness (6.18mm) and its design, one which vaguely resembles a squashed iPhone 4/4S. The rest of the feature includes a quad-core HiSilicon system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz, a rear 8-megapixel camera, a front-facing 5-megapixel one, a 4.7in display with a 1,280 x 720 resolution, a polished aluminium alloy frame, a 2,000mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei's own Emotion UI.

Expect the Chinese manufacturer to unleash an updated version of this smartphone later this year to keep it competitive with the new breed of models that will come out later this year and to add 4G. Check out our review of the Huawei Ascend P6 smartphone here.
