Model: The Huawei Y series is the companies answer to the ultra-affordable low-end devices from Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo in the market. For some reason, despite the existence of Honor, Huawei decides to maintain this category under its own roof. The Y6 Pro (2019) is the latest addition to this line up. Despite being in the cheap category, this phone doesn’t look anywhere close to cheap. For a start, it has a plastic body with a thickness of 8 mm; pretty respectable for something in this range. The edges are curved to give it a more premium look, matching the high-end devices in the market. The entire front part of the body is sleek with most of it covered by the screen. It comes with a 6.09-inch IPS LCD screen capable of displaying at a resolution of 720 x 1,560 pixels. The display has a tear-drop like notch to maximize the display area. This gives a screen-to-body ratio of 79.2 %. The phone comes with the latest Android version 9.0 with Huawei’s EMUI 9. In terms of Hardware, it has a Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 quad core processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. This is definitely a lot for this price and users can expect a smooth-running phone for all regular usage. Additionally, the built-in memory can be expanded by up to 512 GB via the microSD card slot.
The Y6 Pro (2019) has a 13 MP single camera setup for its rear-sided main camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. The rear camera produces some reasonable photos, definitely enough for social media posting. At the bottom, there is a headphones jack. Providing power is a 3,020 mAh battery, which can be charged with the older micro USB port. This is not a complaint though. For this price, these specs are very good, providing a phone that can be used as normal smartphone, like the more expensive ones. The Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) is a good choice for those with a lower budget. However, competition comes from the least expected brand out there. Samsung’s latest Galaxy M10 provides a much better, thinner design and a better camera setup. Its TFT screen is also just as good as the LCD on the Y6 and its bigger too at 6.22 inch. One may also argue that the M10’s Exynos processor is better than the Mediatek in the Y6. Nevertheless, for around the same price, both the Y6 Pro and M10 definitely give some very good hardware.
