Reviews for the Huawei Y6 2018

78.7% Huawei Y6 2018 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Still affordable. The Huawei Y6 2018 is a device that has a lot of power for the money. The device looks modern and has a decent display, but can it be crowned the king of budget devices?
Huawei Y6 (2018) Review
Source: Yugatech English version
The Huawei Y6 2018 has its imperfections but for an entry-level smartphone, its specs are competitive. While its performance is average, the good viewing experience, camera quality, and face unlock capabilities are what it makes the device unique than the other smartphones out in the market. This device is one of our recommended smartphones if users are tight on budget.

Aside from that, the Y6 2018 will face competition against ASUS’ lite versions of the ZenFone 4 Selfie and Max—both retailing for under Php 8,000. On the local side, there’s the Cloudfone Next Infinity and Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Deluxe: Both sport an 18:9 display, and are priced at Php 6,999 and Php 5,999 respectively.

Qualcomm Adreno 308: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 425 SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

425: Entry-level SoC that was announced in February 2016. It integrates 4 ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at up to 1.4 GHz, an LPDDR3 memory controller and wireless radios for WiFi and 4G/LTE.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

Huawei: Huawei Technologies Co, Ltd. is a Chinese telecommunications company and hardware manufacturer founded in 1987 and headquartered in Shenzhen. Huawei is a global leader in information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices. Huawei provides end-to-end solutions for telecommunications networks, devices, and smartphones, as well as storage, servers, networking, and cloud computing enterprise solutions and products.

In 2014, Huawei established the Honor subsidiary brand under which certain smartphone lines are sold. The Huawei name is usually not listed for these products.

65.18%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
