Real Dual Sim, you can use 2 Nano- Simcards and a memory card.

The camera makes good photos, even in low light.
A notification led is available and FM radio is also built in. Charging time from 20% to 90% is about 105 minutes. Flat charging cycles of 30-70% are optimal, 20-80% are still ok to save the battery. If the battery is already firmly installed, I want at least that it lasts long!

Before I bought this cell phone, I had tried it once with one of the so-called China- cell phones (79, 90€/Cubot), but they are really scrap! Then better spend a little more.
Anyway, I can only recommend this smartphone.

So I am really surprised about the negative reviews, I have the phone now for a month and I can’t say anything negative about it. It does what it should, runs very smoothly, has never crashed or anything else. All apps run perfectly and for this price I can only recommend to buy it, which I very rarely do in product reviews. Yes, it has no notification LED, that’s true and it was unusual for me, but now it’s not that bad anymore. The memory is with 8GB of which you can use about 4.6GB absolutely sufficient. For me personally, the decisive factor was that the phone is not so big and the processor power as well as the RAM are sufficient for my requirements, and they are. The battery lives, if the mobile phone is in standby for a long time really long, with me it was already three days, if one plays however much plays and surfs etc. then it holds one day, i.e. 24 hours which is however also not bad. I have also observed this with my high-priced mobile phone. The photos are usable, the photo light can also be used as a flashlight and the workmanship of the case is also great. It should be kept in a cover, as with all plastic housings these are not very stable, so it should not fall down without a cover. Mine has already fallen out of my vest pocket several times from about 1 meter and has not suffered any damage. So I’m certainly a critical buyer and I don’t hold back with negative opinions, but I can’t say anything negative about this phone after one month. The claims must of course also remain realistic, it is a great beginner and second mobile phone, whereby it already has a lot to offer.

So the camera is very good, takes nice pictures also because of the 13 megapixels, it’s a pity that the camera has not more to offer than the Samsung J3.
The connection with LTE is also fast. As a beginner smartphone it is very suitable. Only the handling is quite complicated.
Disadvantage is, the built-in rechargeable battery.
>My conclusion:
As a beginner Smartphone it is perfectly suitable or if you are looking for a cheap Smartphone that has a basic equipment.
But I miss my old Samsung J3 – because it has more functions and is easier and more comfortable to use, I change back to Samsung.

I can just recommend the phone.also I was very sceptical at the beginning if this can be something, but I have to say that I am just positively surprised.it has no manual, I just downloaded it to my computer from the net.this was free, because the handling is really easy. My daughter has the Samsung S 5 and from the presentation of both phones are almost the same, I have read that the battery should not be replaceable, but this is not the case with me, the battery I got separately, the battery performance is excellent, with my old Samsung I had the phone in the alarm function overnight on the charging cable, because the battery was empty in the morning, This is not the case with these phones, I still have 93% in the morning. What is also particularly great, the phone is not full of unnecessary apps that are pre-installed, it is really only the most necessary on it and the rest you can just get from the Appstore.

I usually buy only cheap smartphones, because I don’t see it to put so much money into such a device, or to chain myself to a contract. The only expensive device I had so far was the Samsung Galaxy S3. The Huawei y5 2019 is absolutely the best I’ve had so far and all for the price. The display is very nice and the camera takes good pictures for the price. I was absolutely blown away by the sound quality of the built-in speakers, which makes watching videos really fun, I wouldn’t have expected for the price. Also a face recognition is included, I don’t really need it, but it works fine most of the time. Even more demanding games run on the device, I tried Order and Chaos and Mario Kart Tour and both ran smoothly, something you can usually forget about with other devices in this price range. The only thing I have to criticize is the too small internal memory of 16gb.

I was looking for a cheap and small smartphone with a maximum 4.5 screen.
These are a bit rare.

That’s why I decided to buy the Huawei Y5, which is not quite as fresh as it used to be.

The device doesn’t look cheap and is well made and can handle all everyday tasks without any problems, despite model year 2016.

The Android 5.1. 1 Lolipop runs clean and stable.
I like the user interface that the manufacturer has put over the Android 5.1.
The timeline of all messages and activities is especially noteworthy.
This means you can keep track of everything with just one keystroke.

The only drawback is that the viewing angle of the display is relatively small and there is no quick charge. From 0 to 100% battery, it needs its 2 hours.

In total, it can be said that the price/performance ratio fits.

Much regards A.

I’ve had the phone for two days. First impression – good! br>>For the price absolutely good performance. The Wlan seems to be a little bit susceptible to disturbances, if several devices are in the same Wlan, but it is not disturbing.
16.10. Addendum
The mail program does not get along with my mail server (own domain) can only receive mail, sending is not possible.
A mail app from the googlestore provides a remedy.
Android 5.1 runs very smoothly, the memory is enough for my purposes.
If I still find major problems, I’ll add these here.

Needed a new smartphone. The choice this time was the Huawai Y5 2019 in black.
The phone is quickly set up, the sim card is quickly inserted. Short update from Android and huawai itself and off we go.
I need the Smatphone for Whatsapp,to tel and take some photos. Here it is enough. The photos during the day or with good lighting are top,in the dark not as good as with my older Samsung.
I had no problems with the wlan and also while surfing the net or watching videos on youtube there were never problems. The touchscreen even works very well with a silicone cover on the front. By the way, there is a protective foil on the display. Very exemplary.
In addition, unlike my previous Samsung smartphones, it finally offers decent speakers.
Can really recommend it !

Purchase recommendation for everyone that a well functioning cell phone would like that everything can which one needs, but not much money for a status symbol to spend would like.

I can only advise against a purchase.
The mobile phone switches itself to silent, Wlan is switched off or it hangs up. If you have to be reachable at work, this thing is a catastrophe. The reception performance is in direct comparison to my wife’s Samsung mobile phone underground, with the same provider and the same location…
If you even call up Facebook, you should calculate a waiting time for the page structure of 2 -3 minutes at E+. I have therefore often checked my data volume to see if I have already exceeded it and ended up in the snoring area. My tablet builds up the pages super fast with the same provider.
The touch keys are absolutely insensitive and react with a long delay, if at all. I could have thrown the thing against the next wall several times.
The battery is actually constantly empty…
Whoever wants to have a retro-feeling: This is a Smartphone with the quirks of the first generation.

Compared to my ancient Y201, it is worlds faster, better. A drop of bitterness is the non-existent geomagnetic sensor (compass) although it is mentioned in some data compilations.
The first start was a bit bumpy: There was no sign of life even after 1/2 hour on the mains and pressing the power button for minutes. No ‘I am being charged’ or anything. The battery went in and out several times, and then, after a quick cleaning of the contacts, it suddenly came to life. Since then, it’s worked perfectly. Price/performance very well. Ideal for people who don’t like to carry 600EUR around with them.
