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.

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.
