Huawei Y5p Smartphone Review – Compact Phone with Deprivation

Is a single camera enough? Even if it looks like more: the large camera module of the Huawei Y5p contains only one lens. This is acceptable at a very reasonable price, but you also have to get used to the missing Google services and the wide display edges. Is it still enough for a purchase recommendation?

Case, equipment and operation - Smart rear panel

Huawei would like to have just over 100 euros for the Y5p. In view of the low price, the Chinese have made a surprisingly big effort with the case: Of course, there is no aluminum or high quality gorilla glass on the back, but instead a fairly stable plastic back with a pattern in concentric circles that emanate from the camera module and refract the light, so that the device looks chic. There should also be something for everybody in terms of colors: simple black, a little more unusual dark blue or provocative mint green.

At the front there are quite thick edges, which are otherwise not common even in such cheap smartphones: The Nokia 2.3 or the Alcatel 3L 2020 with their Waterdrop-Notches prove it. Although the Huawei Y5p still has a somewhat more compact and lighter case than many competitors, it also has a much smaller screen.

32 GB mass storage is common in the price range, expansion via microSD card is possible and doesn't even cost one of the two dual SIM slots, since there is a separate slot for the microSD. The fact that cheap mobile phones don't have a USB-C port is relatively normal, but it's a pity in view of the meanwhile very wide spread of the more modern format.

Android 10 is pre-installed, the security patches are from April 2020 and are already outdated at the time of testing.

Android 10 ist vorinstalliert, die Sicherheitspatches stammen von April 2020 und sind zum Testzeitpunkt schon veraltet.

Our WLAN test with the reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12 results in brisk transfer rates that the comparable devices cannot keep up with. This is probably mainly due to the fact that the Huawei Y5p can transmit in a 5 GHz network, where there are usually fewer devices and therefore higher data throughput.

Cameras - Only one camera at the back

Recording front camera
Recording front camera

Despite the massive camera module on the back, there is only one single camera. This one has a resolution of 8 megapixels, which is hardly contemporary. Pictures look blurred, bluish and offer little detail. Nevertheless: For a snapshot in between you can use the camera as long as there is enough light, otherwise the camera only sees black. 

The camera has its own HDR mode, which you have to activate manually, and an automatic embellishment function. 

Videos can be recorded with a maximum of 1080p and 30 fps, brightness transitions appear very jerky, the general quality is OK if the lighting conditions are suitable. In low light, however, the video image quickly becomes very noisy. 

The front camera records images with a maximum of 5 megapixel resolution. The lens distorts the lines so that you don't get a perspective correct image, the image quality itself is a bit noisy when you take a closer look, but OK for snapshots.

Display - Quite bright and with good black level

Sub-pixel array
Sub-pixel array

The screen with a somewhat extended 720p resolution offers a decent brightness of over 500 cd/m² on average, which is even slightly above the comparable devices. On the other hand, the illumination isn't quite as even, and differences in brightness can become visible in larger color areas.

The black value is quite good, so that the contrast ratio is also OK. Thus, for a cheap IPS-screen, the display on the screen is not that bad.

According to our measurements with the CalMAN software, there is a visible blue cast in the display, colours deviate clearly from the target values. There is also a display flicker in low screen brightness, which probably comes from PWM, a menu mechanism used to regulate the screen brightness. Sensitive people should therefore definitely try the screen before buying.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
48 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 25 ms rise
↘ 23 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 77 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 66.67 Hz ≤ 10 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 66.67 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 10 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 66.67 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17714 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - Hardly any heating

The MediaTek Helio P22 is popular in this price range. It is sufficient for a fairly smooth system navigation, but it quickly runs out of breath when several apps are open or when more complex applications are used.

When surfing the Internet, the speed is OK for a cheap smartphone, but you have to wait for pictures from time to time and there can be a short pause when scrolling.

The warming of the smartphone under load is inconspicuous and the user shouldn't notice anything. The loudspeaker is built into the earphones, so that it radiates its sound forward, which is positive at first because it can hardly be covered. Basses aren't audible, and the low midrange frequencies also seem powerless, but vocals and speech are reproduced quite clearly. 

External audio devices can also be connected via a 3.5mm socket or Bluetooth, and they receive a clean signal.

The Huawei Y5p's battery also turns out rather scarce due to the small case size: It offers 3,020 mAh capacity. This is enough for about 13:30 hours in our WLAN test, which is still a decent result. A day without charging should be easy to get by with. The small charger offers the minimum requirement of a mobile phone charger with 5 watts and thus needs at least 2:30 hours to fully charge the device again.

Verdict – With a good screen, but without Google

In Review: Huawei Y5p. Test device provided by:
In Review: Huawei Y5p. Test device provided by:

The Huawei Y5p impresses with its chic back, the stable case and the fairly decent screen. The cameras can be used for snapshots and the battery life is sufficient. The fast WLAN makes surfing the internet more comfortable than one would expect in this price range.

But even in the very cheap segment, the smartphone looks a bit old-fashioned with its low camera resolution and the wide edges at the front. Additionally, the smartphone does not support Google services. So if you have apps that you can't do without, you should definitely check if they are already available in Huaweis App Gallery.

The Huawei Y5p comes without Google services, but with fast WLAN and a good screen for this price range.

So it's not easy to recommend the device, Huawei lures with extensive bonuses like 3 months free cloud storage and 6 months free access to Huawei Music and Huawei Video.

The Huawei Y5p doesn't offer any essential weaknesses for its low price, and those who want to dare to break away from Google's app world can include the cheap smartphone in their considerations. But those who are already used to Android with Google services and are looking for very good cameras for their money should look elsewhere.

Editor of the original article: Florian Schmitt - Managing Editor Mobile
When I was 12, the first computer came into the house and immediately I started tinkering around, taking it apart, getting new parts and replacing them - after all, there always had to be enough power for the current games. When I came to Notebookcheck in 2009, I was passionate about testing gaming notebooks. Since 2012, my attention has been focused on smartphones, tablets and future technologies.
