Huawei Y5 2019 Review

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.
