If the lack of GMS doesn’t deter you from getting the device, then go right ahead and cop the Y7p as it’s still a pretty good device. Although, if you’re uncertain in dealing with all that no GMS issue, you may want to consider other smartphones such as the Realme 5 and the Honor 20 Lite, that are in the same price range as the Huawei Y7p.

The biggest hurdle with the Y7p is its lack of access to GMS. Thre are ways around it thanks to Huawei’s App Gallery and the eventual workarounds that’ll pop up once the phone is in circulation, but it’s still an annoying hurdle that some customers will have to endure.

Huawei has released yet another variant in its Y series just weeks after the release of the Huawei Y9. The Huawei Y7P is known as a new budget smartphone with triple cameras. The price is considered to be quite low compared to its predecessor, although the device features the same Kirin 710F chipset as the Y9. The Kirin 710 chipset might not be as powerful as the Kirin 900 series chipsets, but it caters well for general daily tasks. The design that comes with a holographic-like effect on the back is definitely something to look out for in terms of design creativity. It incorporates a plastic shell with nice gradient coloring at the back, paired with a glossy finishing. The Huawei 7YP has very limited color variations, which include only two options, namely Aurora Blue for the creatively minded and Midnight Black for a much simpler look. As far as the colors are concerned, Aurora Blue has the glossiest finish, while the Midnight Black version tends to cater a much simpler design by sporting an all-black colorway.
The glossy finish serves not only the physical presentation, as this kind of finish makes it rather easy to pick up and respond to fingerprints. The physical rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is definitely reliable and fast and, unlike face unlock, this feature works even when there is an absence of light. Apart from that, the 6.39-inch screen size promises a premium user experience with its awesome display. The LCD display deserves ultimate credit for the good color reproduction, saturation and contrast that it provides at such an affordable price. It also provides awesome viewing angles. Other than that, the Huawei 7YP also houses a large 4,000mAh battery for an improved user experience with ease of charging.
The triple-lens camera at the back of the phone was intended for ultra-wide and portrait shots with a single front-facing camera for all the selfie lovers out there. The one thing that makes the 7YP the most affordable phone with a high-resolution sensor is the incorporation of a 48-megapixel camera sensor. The night mode with low-light capability brings a combination of AI stabilized technology with an extended exposure time of 6 seconds. This creates the possibility of acquiring much brighter and more detailed night shots. As for the gamers out there, the 7YP deserves attention as it can run some of the most demanding games, such as Black Desert Mobile, Asphalt 9 and Blade of God, at decent frame rates. In addition, the Huawei Y7P also supports High Frame Rate mode on Mobile Legends. However, it should be noted that the Huawei 7YP does not come with the Google Play Store. Therefore, the only way to discover and download mobile apps is through Huawei's AppGallery.
