Huawei's Ascend P6 and Samsung's Galaxy S4 are both great devices. But between the two, which is better?
Ascend P6 has a dimension of 132.7 x 65.5 x 6.2 mm while Galaxy S4 has 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9. The two smartphones are light than most phones with Ascend P6 weighing 120g and Galaxy S4 weighing 130g. You won't notice the 10g difference when put in your pocket.
Both are smooth and slick to the touch. However, Ascend P6 looks a little bit like an iPhone.

Galaxy S4 has a wider screen of 5 inches while Ascend P6 has a 4.7-inch screen. Samsung's smartphone has a greater resolution of 1, 080 x 1, 920 pixels with a pixel density of 441ppi, in contrast Ascend P6 only has 720 x 1, 280 pixels (312ppi).

Galaxy S4 packs a superior 2, 600mAh battery and promises 17 hours of talk time. Ascend P6 has a 2, 000mAh battery with 14.3 hours talk time. Since both are running on quad-core and Android platform, expect Galaxy S4 to last longer.
