Huawei Y6p Smartphone Review – Long runtime without Google

The screen is convincing. Positioning yourself in the low-cost smartphone market without Google services could be difficult. The Huawei Y6p is forced to try. With three cameras on the back and a large battery, it has some arguments on its side. In the test, we will take a closer look at the cheap smartphone.

Case, equipment and operation - Colorful and fast WLAN

The smartphone is available in three color variants: Phantom Purple, Emerald Green and Midnight Black. The back of the phone has a high-gloss finish and the frame is matt. On the front there is a small waterdrop notch that contains the front camera. The housing is stable and can hardly be twisted, but pressure on the screen is visible in the liquid crystal.

You have to be content with a microUSB port, also there is no NFC, so mobile payment services cannot be used. Instead, the smartphone comes with some LTE frequencies, so there is a higher chance of using mobile Internet when traveling abroad.

Android 10 is installed, but the security patches are already 5 months old at the time of testing. Google Services are not available on the Huawei Y6p, so you have to do without the Play Store and other Google apps. Instead, you can download apps from Huawe's AppGallery, which is filling up with popular apps, but Netflix for example is not yet available.

As far as WLAN is concerned, WiFi 4 is the maximum available, but at a decent speed, as our tests with the reference router Netgear AX12 Nighthawk show.

3 camera lenses shows the Y6p on the back, the main camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels. In addition there is a wide angle camera with 5 megapixels and a depth of field camera. Zooming in several steps between wide angle and main camera is not possible, only direct switching.

The pictures of the main camera are not too badly exposed, but they are a bit poor in detail and not very sharp when you look closer. With weak lighting there is also a lack of sharpness and details, but the brightening is OK. The wide angle lens also takes pictures with little detail. For snapshots the cameras are OK, but if you want more flexibility and a really good camera system, you have to dig deeper into your pocket.

Videos can be recorded in 1080p and 30 fps at most, the autofocus is quite slow here, but otherwise the image quality is OK. The wide angle lens can also be used for videos, but you have to decide on one of the two lenses before you start recording.

The selfie camera of the Huawei Y6p has a resolution of 8 Megapixel. In low light, it is only usable with a bright screen that illuminates the subject. Under normal lighting, the picture is not very sharp in detail, but it is enough for snapshots.

Display - Good color accuracy

Sub-pixel Array
Sub-pixel Array

The Huawei Y6p has an IPS screen with a resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels. The Honor 9X Lite is a tip for those who are looking for more resolution, but even so, hardly any individual pixels are visible and the display looks relatively sharp.

The brightness of the screen is more convincing: with an average of 538 cd/m², the smartphone is considerably brighter than the comparable devices and can therefore still be used in somewhat brighter environments. Despite the higher brightness, the black level of 0.39 cd/m² is convincing, so that the contrast of 1,444:1 is also quite good.

We don't notice any PWM flickering and the response times of the screen are acceptable.

In our tests with the spectrophotometer and the CalMAN software we found a slight blue cast in the display. But apart from some blue tones, colors and grayscales are reproduced quite realistically.

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
18 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms rise
↘ 11 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. » 22 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 19 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. » 31 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to 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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17699 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - Less power, but long battery life

A MediaTek Helio P22 is responsible for the performance of the Huawei Y6p, although it operates somewhat slower in the Huawei Y6p than, for example, in the Alcatel 3L 2020, possibly due to the smaller RAM. In general, the performance is sufficient for everyday use, but with more complex apps, for example, the volume control comes to a standstill.

In terms of memory speed, the Huawei Y6p with its eMMC flash probably doesn't win any prizes either, but is on a class level overall. The memory card reader also achieves decent transfer rates with our reference microSD Toshiba Exceria Pro M501.

The warming is quite low and should hardly be noticed in everyday life, even under heavy load.

The small mono loudspeaker on the lower edge sounds very high pitched and pleasant in the ear at highest volume. If you lower the volume, the sound is a bit muffled. The sound reproduction via Bluetooth or 3.5mm cable works without problems.

The 5,000-mAh battery has a great runtime of almost 16 hours in our WLAN test. Under normal use, this should be enough for several days without charging. In fact, the Huawei Y6p seems to be quite economical with energy, the Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite with the same size battery does not reach these runtimes. But it's also good that you don't have to charge so often, because due to the missing quick charging technology, charging the high-capacity battery takes quite a long time.

The Huawei Y6p is a reasonably equipped entry-level smartphone with good battery life. The fact that it is not suitable for everyone is due to the lack of Google services, which makes it difficult to access many popular apps.

If you can live with it, you can get three cameras for quite little money, but only two of them effectively take pictures, and that with quite blurry details. The processing power of the smartphone is OK for its price range, but by no means outstanding. The screen is good, displaying colors quite well, offering good contrast and even at low brightness it doesn't flicker.

The Huawei Y6p is a cheap smartphone with a long battery life, a good screen and limitations in the availability of apps.

If you know what you're getting into when you don't have Google services, if you don't care much about the camera and don't need a lot of power, you can take a look at the cheap Y6p.

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.
