Your phone shouldn't ruin your look

O2, Huawei and George Lamb have teamed up to tackle one of the most serious problems facing humanity today - Visual Mobile Lines, or VML. The Huawei Ascend P6 is the answer to your VML.

Impossibly slim, metallic body

Slim and sensitive, the P6 comes in at a super-skinny 6.18mm thin and has a touchscreen that works even when you’re wearing gloves. It’s strong and lightweight too. Made from aluminium and with a scratch-resistant coating on its back cover, you won’t need to worry about the rough and tumble of everyday life taking its toll on your phone.

Dual camera action

The P6’s 8 megapixel HD rear-facing camera will capture bright and clear photos even when you’re in dim light. And with its 5 megapixel front-facing camera, the P6 is ideal for ‘selfies’ (taking pictures of yourself) as well as group shots and video calls.

Loads of useful features

Take home the P6 and you’ll also be getting a long-lasting battery life, a large 4.7inch HD screen ideal for watching films, playing games and video calls. You’ll also get access to over 700,000 apps from Google Play.

Get the latest phone whenever you want with O2 Refresh

Image of lock

Don't get locked into a contract – get a new phone whenever you want.

Image of Refresh plans

O2 Refresh splits your contract into 2 parts – Airtime Plan and Phone Plan. So that you know exactly what you're paying for.

Image of Refresh plans

You choose the right Airtime Plan (minutes, texts & data) for you, and how you want to pay for your Phone plan – whether more upfront or spread over 24 months.

And because you pay for them separately, you can pay off your Phone plan whenever you want and get yourself the latest smartphone.
