Cheap Thrills. "Cheaper is always possible", Huawei thought, and it thus reduced the price of the lower mid-range with its Y6 II Compact. Is that enough for a convincing presentation?

Huawei Y6 Pro

The Huawei Y6 Pro is the newer version of the Huawei Y6. Like the previous generation, the Huawei Y6 Pro is also a mid-range smartphone in terms of specs, but the phones best selling point is obviously its massive 4000 mAh non-removable Lithium-Polymer battery with quick charging support. As for design, it sports a plastic back which most mid-range phones come equipped with. However, the back comes with a textured body, which looks nice and classy. The back is removable, but like most Huawei phones these days, users do not have access to the battery. The dual-SIM and microSD slots are under the back cover, right above the non-removable battery. The charging port and speaker grill are at the bottom of the phone. It has its power and volume rockers on the right side, which can easily be reached with the thumb. It feels a little heavy at 160 g, but easily fits into the palm with its dimensions of 143.1 x 71.8 x 9.7 mm. Talking about the display, it has a 5 inch HD IPS display, which is the same LCD panel that was used in its previous version of the Y6. It is a decent panel for a smartphone at its price range. The big bezel does not look attractive, however, there is an onscreen button, which is a welcoming addition. The LCD panel is good and it produces accurate color. The brightness is decent so the user will not have too many problems reading screen content under the sun. Behind the phone, a user will find its 13 MP autofocus rear camera (4160 x 3120 pixels) and a 5 MP front camera (2.592 x 1.952 pixels) which are decent in quality. Though it has capabilities to capture nice photos during daylight and does a decent job during selfies, groupies and video calling, low light photography is average and can appear slightly noisy. If there is one reason a user should buy this phone, it is its 4000 mAh battery, which lasted a whole day’s worth of work. It can last through browsing the internet, checking emails, and browsing on social media, as well as social messaging for a day. Huawei has understood the need for longer battery life, as seen on the Huawei Mate 8 phablet, too. The Huawei Y6 Pro runs on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and on Huawei’s user interface EMUI, with a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. A user can expand memory up to 128 GB with a memory card. The Huawei Y6 Pro also comes with tools users may find useful such as a weather app, calculator, and FM radio. A user can optimize phone performance by using the inbuilt optimization tool, which clears junk files. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Y5 2018 is currently one of the cheapest smartphones in Huawei's western line-up. For 120 Euros (~$140; US version ~$120), buyers will get the standard fare in this price bracket. Is that enough for the new Huawei smartphone to survive among the swarm of competitors?

Huawei Y6 Pro 2019

The Huawei Y series is the companies answer to the ultra-affordable low-end devices from Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo in the market. For some reason, despite the existence of Honor, Huawei decides to maintain this category under its own roof. The Y6 Pro (2019) is the latest addition to this line up. Despite being in the cheap category, this phone doesn’t look anywhere close to cheap. For a start, it has a plastic body with a thickness of 8 mm; pretty respectable for something in this range. The edges are curved to give it a more premium look, matching the high-end devices in the market. The entire front part of the body is sleek with most of it covered by the screen. It comes with a 6.09-inch IPS LCD screen capable of displaying at a resolution of 720 x 1,560 pixels. The display has a tear-drop like notch to maximize the display area. This gives a screen-to-body ratio of 79.2 %. The phone comes with the latest Android version 9.0 with Huawei’s EMUI 9. In terms of Hardware, it has a Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 quad core processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. This is definitely a lot for this price and users can expect a smooth-running phone for all regular usage. Additionally, the built-in memory can be expanded by up to 512 GB via the microSD card slot. The Y6 Pro (2019) has a 13 MP single camera setup for its rear-sided main camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. The rear camera produces some reasonable photos, definitely enough for social media posting. At the bottom, there is a headphones jack. Providing power is a 3,020 mAh battery, which can be charged with the older micro USB port. This is not a complaint though. For this price, these specs are very good, providing a phone that can be used as normal smartphone, like the more expensive ones. The Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) is a good choice for those with a lower budget. However, competition comes from the least expected brand out there. Samsung’s latest Galaxy M10 provides a much better, thinner design and a better camera setup. Its TFT screen is also just as good as the LCD on the Y6 and its bigger too at 6.22 inch. One may also argue that the M10’s Exynos processor is better than the Mediatek in the Y6. Nevertheless, for around the same price, both the Y6 Pro and M10 definitely give some very good hardware.

Huawei Y Max Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Huawei Y Max is something that we would consider a next-gen “phablet”. Even though smartphones are going for 6-inch screens, the Y Max’s 7.12-inch is still quite a handful. Still, it looks good thanks to the faux leather design and slim bezels. Some may not like it, and that’s okay, but those who are looking for something great for binge-watching on Netflix or YouTube or for playing games, will find this device perfect.

Currently, the device is only priced at RM1299, which is not too shabby considering how large the display is. Not only that, but it also comes with a “leather” back which is quite satisfying to hold. If you prefer a smartphone with a large display and equally large battery for mobile gaming and watching videos, the Huawei Y Max might be the device for you.

Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 Review – Essential Specs for Less
Source: Team Android English
More related to software, Y7 Prime 2019 has built-in face unlocking. Huawei is calling it Face Unlock 2.0 but actually the performance is quite slow. There is a good bit of delay before the smartphone recognizes and unlocks. This might be due to the lower-end processor but then again, presence of this recent unlock method on a budget smartphone is great in itself. Reliability, however, is great and it works well in different lighting conditions.

Huawei Y6 2019

The Huawei Y6 (2019) is a budget smartphone which arrived with designs that are quite unique. It comes in four different variants: Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, Modern Black and Amber Brown. Midnight Black is a dark and classic colour. However, the Sapphire Blue has this new material that hides reflective particles as small as 15 microns to diffract light and produce a bright colourful effect. The dark matte colour of Modern Black features a soft, smooth faux-leather finish. Users will appreciate the craftsmanship and detail of this chic material. As for the Amber Brown, it has a faux-leather design and a type of material that is both anti-fingerprint and fashionable. Amber Brown is a distinct style that will catch all the attention. The Huawei Y6 (2019) measures 8 mm in thickness and weighs 150 g. As for the display, the Huawei Y6 (2019) has a 6.09" Dewdrop HD+ display. This wide screen with a 87% screen-to-body ratio provides a great display for videos, photos and favourite books. The Huawei Y6 (2019) also blocks out harmful blue light and is TÜV Rheinland certified. The 8 MP front facing camera was paired up with an advanced Selfie Toning Flash 2.0, a front flash toning light assisted by screen light that enables users to capture a true, natural and accurate portrait even in low-light conditions. Users can also capture greatness with the 13MP rear camera. The wide f/1.8 aperture lens lets in 50% more light to enhance the quality and clarity of low-light shots.

The 12nm chipset, 2GB RAM and large 32GB ROM expandable memory of the Huawei Y6 (2019) can store all content and has the ability to multitask smoothly.

The full-screen gesture navigation and added system speed enhancements with an intelligent Phone Manager help to deliver an overall smoother experience. The Huawei Y6 (2019) also protects information with face unlocking and a fingerprint scanner. Face Unlock intelligently increases the brightness in low-light conditions to easily see user’s face.

It is suitable to be a teenage phone, elderly phone or a secondary phone on a budget.

The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a great smartphone with a good feature set but competition in its price range is tougher than it has ever been. They’ve had to make a couple of compromises to achieve the Php 12,990 price tag but all the bits and bobs they’ve managed to cram into this mid-range device does make it worthy of consideration.

The sizeable, unobstructed display is the Y9 Prime 2019’s most significant selling point. Apart from that, you also get a great battery life, an attractive-looking smartphone, EMUI 9, and a modest performance. If that’s all you’re looking for, then definitely snag the Y9 Prime 2019 for PHP 12,990.

The Pop-up camera is fast becoming the new notch for 2019, as manufacturers look for a way to give consumers an all-screen experience. But pop-up phones usually come with a premium price tag, with most consumers having to pay more than Php 15K to experience all-screen heaven. That’s where Huawei’s Y9 Prime 2019 comes in. Armed with an all-screen display and a pop-up selfie camera, the Y9 Prime 2019 gives people an all-screen experience for less than Php 15K.

79.7% Huawei Y5 2019 Smartphone Review: Better than last year | Notebookcheck

Huawei Y5 2019 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Huawei Y5 2019 has its pros with its unique design, bright display, fairly competent performance, and modest battery life. However, some of the cons such as a single RAM offering, face unlock response time, average photo quality, lack of fingerprint security, outweigh the pros. However, if you’re just looking for an attractive phone for your basic needs, the Huawei Y5 2019 may be for you. Although, for its price tag of PHP 5,990, we think that there are other entry-level devices out there in the same price range that offer better specs and features than this smartphone.
