Huawei Y7 2019 – an attractive, affordable and intelligently designed smartphone is an upgrade to Huawei Y7 2018, the best and the biggest model from its entry-level Y series. After pushing its premium P series smartphones in the market, the Chinese tech manufacturing giant, Huawei, decided to also cater to its budget-conscious audience with the new and improved Y7 2019. It is primarily targeted at the younger generation or students who can’t afford smartphones worth a king’s ransom. Let’s take a detailed look at everything Huawei Y7 2019 has to offer.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 / 1.8GHz Octa-Core Processor
- 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage
- 26″ Multi-touch Display (1520 x 720) Resolution
- Dual Rear (13MP & 2MP) Camera & 16MP Front Camera
- Android 8.1 Oreo with HUAWEI Emotion UI 8.2
- Price: Was £199.99 / Now £134.99 (Save £65)
Design & Display
In terms of design, Huawei Y7 2019 is fairly good-looking for an entry-level smartphone. Unlike the monolithic, uni-body design of the Y7 2018, the latest version is designed to have the lids and ends appear separate. The glossy finish adds a glamorous touch to the phone.
Huawei Y7 2019 is the same size as its previous model except for the screen which is longer now with super-thin bezels. The new phone’s 6.26-inches screen has grown from the 5.99-inches screen of its predecessor and sports a multi-touch display with 1520 x 720 resolution. The larger screen size and smaller bezels lend Y7 2019 a much more elegant and sophisticated look. The upper-bezel houses a dewdrop notch with a 16MP camera while the bottom-bezel features Huawei logo inscription.
The New Huawei Y7 2019 features 13MP & 2MP dual-camera on the back and 16MP camera on the front. The camera has built-in retouching feature so you don’t need to edit your photos. It works quite decently in daylight producing detailed and crisp photos with accurate colours. In indoor or low-lit environments, however, the camera doesn’t work as nicely. The photos get blurry, sometimes too blurry that they seem to imitate the effect of a water-coloured painting. Given the price, we’d say it’s still a sweet deal.
Software & Performance
Huawei Y7 2019 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor with a maximum clock frequency of up to 1.8 GHz, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage capacity. The processor and the RAM together offer decent enough performance to breeze you throw all the basic mobile computing needs from making phone calls and watching videos to taking photos and perusing social media apps. Expect quick app installations, faster file-openings and smooth multitasking. If you are a video hoarder and 32GB storage capacity just won’t cut it, you can always expand it up to 512GB with a microSD memory card.
The new Huawei phone is adequately responsive to let you play both light and heavy games. You can treat yourself to countless matches of PUBG but graphics is something you might have to compromise on.
Battery & Sound
The new Huawei Y7 2019 is engineered to have a bigger and better battery as compared to its older version. While the previous year’s model had a 3000mAh battery, the new one is powered with a 4000mAh. A difference of a whole one thousand mAh. Talk about a major makeover! With the new battery, the phone can last up to a whole day without charging. The AI-powered technology helps in saving and extending the battery ridding you of the need to frequently recharge.
The speaker grill at the bottom of the phone offers crisp audio. The speaker can get a little too loud but it doesn’t offer a wide frequency range. Hence, you’re better off using a headphone instead while watching your favourite YouTube videos.
Huawei phones are famed for providing value for money and this one is no different. Given the price tag and the features that promise perfection, Huawei Y7 2019 is indeed an ideal smartphone for the youth or users with a tight budget. It does everything smoothly and efficiently being competent enough to be your digital companion that you can rely on. If you’re looking for an affordable, entry-level smartphone that does the job, look no further! Grab it now for £134.99 only!
