The Huawei Y6 2019 makes a strong first impression. It consists almost exclusively of display, no wasted space. The Dewdrop HD+ display has 6.088 inch (IPS-LCD display) and a resolution of 1560 x 720 px/282 ppi. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 87%. For an entry-level cell phone you get plenty of performance:
– Processors: MediaTek Helio A22 MT6761 Quad-Core
– Memory: MediaTek MT6761 SoC with 2 GB RAM
– SIM/SD slots: 1x microSD and 2x Nano-SIM
– Internal memory: 32 GB, which can be expanded up to 512 GB via microSD slot
– Main camera: 13 MP – f/1.8 aperture
– Front camera: 8 MP FF – Selfie Toning Flash from 2. 0
– Operating system: Android 9 Pie
– Networks: LTE FDD / WCDMA / GSM
– GPS: GPS / AGPS, Glonass, BDS
– Connectivity: Bluetooth, Micro USB, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hot Spot
– Sensors: Proximity Switch, Ambient Light Sensor, Gravity Sensor, SAR Sensor
– Audio: *.mp3, *.mid, *.amr, *.awb, *.3gp, *.mp4, *.m4a, *.aac, *.wav, *.ogg, *.flac, *.mkv
– Video: *.3gp, *.mp4, *.webm, *.mkv
– Battery: 3.020 mAh
– Dimensions: 156,28 x 73,5 x 8,0 mm
– Weight: 150g
– Connectors: 1x MicroUSB (2.0), standard audio output

– The smartphone has a display protection foil on it, which is perfectly balanced. Without a protective cover I would not use the smartphone, because the rounded edges of the display quickly fall victim to glass breakage on contact with asphalt. The cover is also a necessity for those who are sensitive to dirt, because the case (especially the backside) takes every fingerprint directly and shows it to the whole world.

The Android operating system is intuitive, easy to handle and if you have had Android before, you will have no problems with it. The display is in its resolution at most middle class, can already e.g. not keep up with a Samsung Galaxy S7 (launch spring 2016). But it is very bright and due to its size it makes a good, high-quality impression. If you don’t necessarily go back from a S9 or similar, you don’t necessarily have to notice that it’s worse. The Huawei has a quite solid and reliable working Face Unlock and a pre-installed FM radio. Unfortunately, it has no USB-C connection, no NFC, you cannot charge it inductively and it has no fingerprint sensor. For that both cameras are really well equipped and the main camera manages to produce very respectable pictures even in low light quality. The selfie camera in the front with 8MP and a toning flash of 2.0 is certainly also very popular with younger audiences. The smartphone runs very quietly and amazingly smoothly, even with several active processes. The battery is really ok – the runtime depends of course strongly on the type of use and when colorful movies are scrolling across the display all day long, you can see the energy rate decrease of course. The smartphone reacts briskly to touch and you hardly have to click again. The comparison to top class smartphones is that opening another app takes half a second longer and is not instant. But this does not make it slow, only slightly slower than e.g. an S9. The bottom line is that you can get a relatively well-equipped good smartphone for incredibly little money and if you haven’t been in the top smartphone class so far (primarily at display resolution), then this is definitely a very good choice.

A large yet lightweight smartphone. The leatherette back looks very good. The foil on the display is an advantage. In direct comparison to the expensive Samsung S9 Plus, the camera can of course neither keep up in contrast nor in color depth. But… in photos taken against the light, i.e. in the room towards the window, Huawei’s are better because they are brighter. For the normal everyday use and snapshots, the camera is completely sufficient. There is a star print because of the too low volume of the conversation. Full volume corresponds to about 60 to 70 percent with S9 Plus. However, the other tones are more than sufficiently loud and only have to be set at about 50 percent. This would actually be a reason to send the smartphone back. But after research on the internet, I found that in PlayStore, when entering …Increase volume on the phone… I found many apps and downloaded a suitable one. Now the call volume is also as it should be. A Monday device is not the best choice because I tested a Huawei a few years ago and sent it back because of the low volume.

For a laptop, I’m willing to pay good money, but for a smartphone it doesn’t make sense to me. All the more I am pleased with the price/performance ratio of this device. The sound is very pleasant, the menu navigation as well and also the photos with the built-in camera are quite acceptable. And the battery is quickly charged, but also quite economical. The haptics and handling are also convincing. After I was not very happy with the manufacturer LG 2 times, the Huawei makes me much more optimistic.

At the beginning I was sceptical if this product is good for anything but I was absolutely convinced. I am totally enthusiastic about this Smartphone.
Own it now for two weeks and I am absolutely satisfied. Great display, high quality workmanship and what I think is really good is the battery life and charging time. The camera convinces me only to 90%, it is not quite perfect but you can ignore that.
The price/performance ratio is absolutely optimal. Clear purchase recommendation for Huawei.

good size, I had to get used to it, good workmanship, all apps run smoothly, even the games run without Ruckler battery lasts almost 5 days, I ordered it in white, feels good, very nice, there was the charger cable, headphones and a white protective cover in the package, update to 4.4.4 is now on the smartphone, wait for 5. Super Smartphone I can only recommend.

A solid, affordable smartphone. Does what it should and meets all requirements: WhatsApp, a little surfing on the internet, Google Maps, Spotify etc.

Of course you can’t expect any miracles with the camera, display etc. For the price, you have to look at the price-performance ratio and that’s just great with this device. Parents were very happy about it.

In my opinion, this phone is a pretty good entry-level smartphone. I understand the criticism of this phone only conditionally. Clear must be one that that is an AIGNINGER MODEL, ergo one cannot compare the cell phone with other high-priced cell phones. The touch screen functions problem-free, only the finger mark scanner did not function completely smoothly with me. Apart from that, everything important has already been said about the phone. You definitely can’t complain about the price, you won’t get anything better from other manufacturers at that price!

So I must say that I am really surprised by the cell phone for this price! br>The battery life is particularly good …bsp: max brightness + Internet + music in the background ~ 30% battery consumption after 4 hours of intensive use! br> Whoever is into larger phones and does not want to spend a lot of money on it, I can only recommend to get this phone. 🙂

Since it will be a gift I do not have the full overview yet but the first impression is great. Touchscreen works great, picture quality fits, screen nice and big. Delivery much faster than indicated. Packing undamaged and unopened, foils in front and back. I am very impressed and satisfied for the price. Headphones and charging cables were also included.

You can’t do much wrong with this cell phone. I expected something much worse for this price. The cell phone arrived well packed at my place. The start-up is super easy. Charging cable and headphones are included as standard. The battery lasts the whole day with me. br>It bothers me a little that there is no darkmode, but let’s not be petty here.

I bought it again for my mom…because she saw it at my place and wished it. Display nice and big…do everything via my cell phone…laptop I only need for writing letters.

My old smartphone didn’t work anymore. So I decided to buy the Huawei Y6 and I am very satisfied. My old smartphone only had Android 6.0 ( no update available ), the Huawei had Android 9.0 I got used to the new version very quickly and feel very well served with the Huawei. Above all there are no unnecessary apps installed.

This phone is unbeatable for the price, a great big display, a good camera and a sound like I have never heard on any other smartphone. And if you take it in Amber Brown you also get something for the eye. I’ve only had it for 3 days, but many people have already told me how great it looks.
Absolute buy recommendation.

The cell phone should be a present for my father. He needs a simple smartphone because he is not too familiar with it and I have to say that this huawei is perfect. It has no unnecessary apps that can’t be uninstalled unlike the Samsung galaxy s8 (he had that before). Works great is light and easy to use.

For years I had a Samsung/Note as my cell phone and thought I would try something different in size. The Huawai had the best ratings and was surprisingly the cheapest….

I have been using it for 3 days now and I am very happy… oh yes and I haven’t had to recharge it yet

Answer report comment December 21, 2020, 01:52

I have always had Samsung Smartphones, but I was not really satisfied. High prices plastic housing and short battery life, and now the G7 perfect processing absolutely noble long battery life and everything runs smoothly. And that for a super price, I am so enthusiastic about!!!!

Stay in touch with your loved ones in corona times. I bought it for my mother (80) so that we can stay in touch. It works great, also my mother gets along with it. The resolution is perfectly adequate to call WhatsApp. I would definitely buy it again as a replacement.

I have the cell phone for about 2 months. I am very satisfied, for the price you do nothing wrong. Sometimes one notices that the device is slower. Then it helps to switch off the wifi or to close all the open apps. Then it runs normally again.
Has a very good battery life, I charge the phone every 1.5 days. Even with heavy use the battery performance is great.
