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?

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
