It's not a hugely popular phone, which is the problem, the p2 had the same issue. Really nice looking though, apparently the build quality rivals or even betters the iphone. KitKat should arrive in January, though as usual it'll depend on your carrier. There is a P6 forum over on xda with a few custom roms/kernels/recoveries.

Hey @Dennis, have you checked the other threads in the Huawei Ascend P6 forum? There's plenty of folk discussing the Wi-Fi issue (I unfortunately don't have a fix as I never experienced it on my P6) and the themes are covered in their very own thread so I won't reproduce those instructions here.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by camera locations? Are you talking about the location metadata attached to images taken on the phone?

I haven't heard of any specific instant messenger launch issues but the SD card reading has popped up a few times. have a read through the other threads and see if anyone else has experienced the same problem (again, our P6 worked fine).

The P6 is still rolling on Android 4.2 but will get KitKat in January according to the company.

Like I said before, the best thing to do is check XDA as there aren't many P6 users here to give specific answers to your questions. Here's a link to the relevant forum.

WIFI Issue -

I recently got an Ascent P6 and had the Wifi issue a lot of people reported. I upgraded to the latest firmware available in my region (B116 Iirc) and unfortunatly, I still had issues. I googled a bit and found someone suggesting I version B1125 which wasnt available in my region. I downloaded it and installed manually from my SD card. At first it seemed to improve but eventually the Wifi problem returned.

I did some more googling and found someone suggesting that they only had problems with their dual band router. My router is dual band (G/N) and was outputting both at the same time. I changed the settings on my router to output G only (far more reliable and stable than N) and low and behold, the wifi problem has gone. My P6 hasn't dropped wifi since (around a week).

If you have a dual band router, set it to G only. See how it goes. I can only imagine that as the P6 supports both G & N, it was getting confused between the 2 signals on the same SSID and jumping between the 2 or dropping it completely.

Obviously not the perfect solution and there is clearly an issue with the wifi chip or programming not knowing how to manage multiple bands BUT, its a solution and it worked for me.

Good luck. My P6 is superb. Love it.
