Reviews for the Huawei GR3 2017

Huawei GR3 2017 Review: A Budget Phone That Covers All The Basics
Source: Unbox English
Like we said earlier, the Huawei GR3 2017 is a shockingly good value proposition, considering its price point. The Kirin 655 octa-core processor is good enough for daily use, the display is excellent for the price point and the battery is able to last an entire day even with heavy use.

With enough light, the GR3 2017 is able to capture plenty of detail. The texture on the fish head as well as the mini-bokeh effect at the rear of the cute kitty is pretty impressive for a phone like the GR3 2017, especially at the price point it sits in.

Huawei GR3 2017 Unboxing, Quick Review: Awesome Value For Money
Source: Unbox English
From our brief time with the GR3 2017, it looks like Huawei has another winner in its hands. At just Php 8,990, it’s 3K less expensive than their already excellent GR5 2017 despite having roughly the same hardware sans the dual camera. We’ll be reviewing this phone in the coming days, so expect our full review to come out later this week or early next week.
