Huawei now has a whole portfolio of devices, some with impressive technical data (P9/P10 or Nova2) and excellent workmanship. Usually an ALU case is used but at much lower prices than the devices of the previous top dogs. The name Huawei still sounds a bit unusual, but the company is moulting and could soon be known as HTC.

With the Y7 here is one of the cheaper models available. Nevertheless it makes a quite valuable impression with its ALU case. It does not ‘creak’ and is quite stable. Especially the large 5.5 inch display is impressive, which is ‘typical for Huaweitypisch’ already provided with a display protection foil. Furthermore the device comes with simple white headphones as well as a power supply with micro-USB connector and a SIM card slot key. Also with this device you have the choice whether you want to use 2 x Nanosimcards or only one Simcard + Micro-SD memory card. I personally recommend to use a micro SD memory card for the 16 Gbyte built-in fixed memory for myself.

The 1280×720 pixel display resolution of the large 5.5 inch screen has already saved a bit, but the resolution still looks sharp with the relatively low HD-ready format. In my opinion, Full-HD-resolutions should be standard even for these cheaper devices, at least with 5.5 inch diagonal. Nowadays, people complain on a relatively high level, if you consider that features of high-end devices 3-4 years ago can be found in entry-level devices… well, well.
Also with the RAM, ‘only’ 2 Gbyte RAM is used, which is (imho) completely sufficient.

The speed of the Smartphone with its 1.4 GHz clocked Octa-Core processor is still fast and sufficient for all everyday things. The applications start fast enough and the touchscreen follows the finger movements smoothly. Of course, this is already more difficult with extensive 3-D smartphone games, here the device occasionally weakens considerably, but for simpler games it is enough. I play a 3D card game and it runs absolutely smoothly.
Here are some smartphones/tablets in a performance comparison:

Total value Antutu-v6:
Medion Lifetab – 40971 points
Huawei Y7 – 43303 points
Huawei Nova 2 – 62608 points
Huawei P9 – 98068 points
Samsung S7 – 137900 points

As interfaces the usual suspects are ready again. There is a micro-USB port, a headphone jack, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.1. The frontal cam offers a resolution of 8 megapixels for selfis. For higher quality photos, a 12 megapixel cam is available on the rear side of the housing. A small flash LED is also available. The pictures, especially the main camera, will be good. A simple compact camera easily replaces the Huawei Y7.
As sensors, ambient light sensor, acceleration sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor were integrated.

To the phone function (I almost forgot ,-)) just so much:
The voice quality is very good. My colleague opposite sounds very clear and distinct. The phone app works intuitively.

The battery is as usual not easily replaceable, but with its 4000 mAh it is already a certain announcement and holds with me depending on use (Whatsapp, Bluetooth to Smartwatch, a few photos, permanent WLAN and Internet, sometimes 1 call, etc.) up to 1.5 days and sometimes even 2 days. Of course, with a smartphone for less than 180 Euros, one should certainly not have the same demands as with a device that costs many times more. The 16 Gbyte internal memory (6 are already occupied) is already quite scarce. In this case we recommend the Micro-SD memory card for expansion instead of a 2nd NANO SIM card. You have to do without fingerprint sensor and Full-HD screen.

If you don’t want to spend more on a smartphone, the Huawei Y7 currently offers a very good price-performance ratio for 180 Euro.

I’m not exactly crazy about cell phones, like some of my friends, who (felt) think every 6 months that they absolutely have to buy a new smartphone – but lately one or the other smartphone has passed through my hands – in a family of six it’s hardly avoidable!

While the big manufacturers present their new flagships almost every six months, from my point of view especially the lower price range is interesting: most people don’t need any of the highly developed features of the current high-end devices, which are currently available at the moment. After a Huawei Honor 5X, which unfortunately fell into cell phone heaven, I myself am currently using a Huawei Honor 6X (currently around 200 EUR) – in addition to some older smartphones we have two no-name devices from China (for 100 and 50 EUR respectively). So the Huawei Y7 2017 is positioned somewhere in between in terms of price.

It’s noticeable that almost all devices in this price range have a very similar design – due to the shape: the back side is almost always made of a matt aluminum shell, while the end caps are made of plastic – as it is the case with the Huawei Y7. This is for a reason, because this is where the antennas are usually located and a metal cover would reduce the transmitting power considerably.

The Y7 has a pleasantly large 5.5 inch IPS display, which makes a very good impression – although it only has the small HD resolution of 1280×720 pixels, so no Full HD, as stated in some overviews at Amazon! Nevertheless, the display is very good – the colors (which can be adjusted), contrasts, resolution – everything is just right here.

Huawei has given all his devices their own user interface, but it takes far less getting used to than other manufacturers’ displays. The manufacturer also provides regular updates for his devices – both the latest Andoid versions and the UI. Huawei has already announced that there will be an upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo for the Y7 as well – it is currently shipped with Android 7.0.

Inside the Y7 is a Snapdragon 435 processor with 8 cores, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB fixed memory, which can be expanded by up to 128 GB using micro-SD cards. All together this is more power than a normal user needs – everything runs smoothly and fast, only with more demanding games you reach the performance limits of this smartphone.

The voice quality (you sometimes forget that these all-rounders are first and foremost telephones!) is excellent, as with all Huawei devices I have had so far – so good that conversation partners have already recognized by the sound that I have a new phone – in a positive sense by even audibly improved call quality. The built-in 12 megapixel main camera takes decent pictures – the quality of which, however, depends strongly on the lighting conditions. With the integrated 4.000 mAh battery you can use the device for 2 days with moderate usage before it has to be plugged in again.

Why only 4 stars? For beginners or those people who use their smartphone only for phoning, chatting, surfing or one or the other game app, there are much cheaper devices that cover most features or even offer more – e.g. my Bluboo Dual, which also comes with an aluminum case and a Full HD IPS display, plus fingerprint sensor and double camera – it has only a quad-core processor, but for that it costs just 100 EUR.

For the others, who want a little more, there are more powerful alternatives in the price range of the Huawei Y7: For those who want to spend around 200 EUR on a cell phone, I strongly recommend the Honor 6X – costs the same and has a Full HD display, fingerprint sensor and an excellent dual camera and also 32 GB fixed memory.

To be honest, I have the impression that someone from the Hauwei warehouse shouted ‘Boss, we still have a lot of obsolete parts lying around here. What should we do with them?’ So the boss came up with an idea and the result was the Y7.

Apropos parts, let me first catch up on the work of the people in charge here and show you a ‘product data sheet’. Written together, improved and supplemented from the official Huawei site (&gt,):

WEIGHT: approx. 165 g

DISPLAY: 5.5 inch HD display (720p) / &gt, pixel density 267 PPI

CHIPSET: MSM8940, Octa-Core (4*1. 4 GHz+4*1.1 GHz)

Operating system: Android 7.0+EMUI5.1 &gt, (7.0 Nougat! )

MEMORY: 2G RAM+16GROM / &gt, + 128GB via optional Micro-SD card


4G: LTE,FDDB1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20
2G: 850/900/1800/1900

GPS: GPS / A-GPS / Glonass

CONNECTIVITY: Wi-Fi 802. 11 b/g/n, 2.4GHz, BT4.1, USB2.0

SENSORS:Proximity sensor,ambient light sensor,compass,gravity sensor


Main camera:12MP
Front camera: 8MP

AUDIOFORMAT:*. mp3、*.mid、*.amr、*.awb、*.3gp、*.mp4、*.m4a、

VIDEO FORMATS: *.3gp、*.mp4、*.webm、*. mkv

AKKU: 4.000 mAh (typical value)

This cell phone reminds me very much of the ready PCs, which are often knocked out by the discounters. Mostly outdated components are put together and tinkered together and sold as ‘beginner PC’ or something similar.

There may be customers who are well served with the performance of the Y7, but they don’t need to spend 180 €. Cell phones with the same performance are already available for 80€ – see&nbsp,&nbsp,- (not tested by me).

And whoever takes 180€ by the hand gets e.g. here is a cell phone with excellent performance:&nbsp,&nbsp,(I use it as a second device in Spain – video of me at the article)

But in detail what is wrong here FOR ME:

The 2 GB RAM in combination with a cheap processor provide, especially for graphics-heavy websites (and most of them are!) for a very hesitant construction. Even the best network is of no use if the device simply doesn’t play along properly.

The display is rather inferior. A HD resolution in 720p is perfectly ok, but due to the low pixel density, the display is unfortunately blurred. If you take a closer look I can even see a block formation (stairs) at the edge of the letters.

It should be clear to everyone (including me!) that there is no high-quality camera in this (cheap) price segment. But cut edges at the panorama shots and pale pictures should be mentioned anyway. The ‘fair-weather shots’ are still useful, but at dusk, in twilight, backlight or in artificial light nothing works.

The cell phone is light, looks nice and offers almost all the software functions that a modern smartphone should have.
But the hardware of yesterday is sad. And therefore the current price (11/2017) of 185 € is just too high.
The device works, but I wouldn’t buy it at the current price. That’s why I can no longer award it like 3 stars.
Furthermore, in this device segment in particular, ‘tomorrow is yesterday today’ applies. In other words: I currently cannot imagine that this device will get an update 😉

I ordered the Huawei Y7 Smartphone (14 cm (5,5 inch) display, 16 GB memory, Android 6.0) grey/silver for my sixty year old mother. She wanted a smartphone that she could handle reasonably well, i.e. that was not too complex to use, that was easy to hold, that could be used to make proper calls, text and send messages via WhatsApp. In addition, the smartphone should have a good Internet connection and WLAN connection, because she surfs the Internet with the smartphone from time to time, reads the news and the weather forecast and likes to play her games (Candy Crush etc.). All in all, a decent smartphone for standard use, which was not too expensive and she got all this with the Huawei Y7 smartphone (14 cm (5.5 inch) display, 16 GB memory, Android 6.0) grey/silver.

The smartphone is well made and it fits well in the hand. When you hold it in your hand, it has a comfortable weight and an attractive design, so you don’t feel like you’re dealing with a cheap smartphone. The setup was done quickly and Android has been running smoothly ever since.

The display is indeed brilliant, its colors and contrast are first class. I myself have an older Huawei smartphone and I think you can clearly see that the display has improved a lot since then.

The battery performance of Huawei smartphones is first class as usual, because once fully charged, the battery lasts for more than a day under normal use without several apps in the background. My mother is enthusiastic about the battery performance and I can confirm this, too, because my old Huawei has only decreased moderately in battery power even after three years of daily use.

Phone calls work first class, because you can hear your conversation partner loud and clear and you can even be heard clearly on the other end of the line. All other functions are also running flawlessly, i.e. the connection to the Internet/WLAN is automatic and so far trouble-free and the quality of the smartphone camera is fine. As far as the camera is concerned, one should of course not expect any miracles, because in this price segment one simply cannot get a high-end camera, but for snapshots and normal use it is completely sufficient. Especially since you normally use a digiCam etc. for real and important photos anyway.

One drawback is the Huawei Y7 smartphone (14 cm (5.5 inch) display, 16 GB memory, Android 6.0) grey/silver but then again and this is the memory of only 16GB. You can expand the memory with a memory card, but then you can only use a SIM card. If that’s enough for you, don’t worry, but I wanted to mention it.

All in all, the Huawei Y7 smartphone (14 cm (5.5 inch) display, 16 GB memory, Android 6.0) grey/silver is a good entry-level smartphone or ideal for all who don’t see their smartphone as a status symbol and use it only for normal use (phone calls, messages (SMS, WhatsApp), internet, games etc.). It is also a good smartphone at a fair price for older people with basic technical knowledge as well as for children. In view of the price, one should of course not expect miracles, because smartphones with more technology gadgets (fingerprint sensor etc.) also simply cost more money, but if you can do without them, then you are not doing much wrong with this smartphone. Anyway, my mother is very happy with it and that’s why it gets deserved 4 stars and a recommendation from our side.

The HUAWEI Y7 is a very successful smartphone in its price range.
It not only shows a slim and elegant design of an almost 6 inch smartphone,
but also convinces in its technical capabilities.
The memory capacity internally is limited to 16 GB, but can be accessed via Micro-SD (max. 256GB).
The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is super fast and has a clock frequency of 4×1.4 GHz and works together with 2GB RAM to run all open applications and processes.

The operating system is the latest Android 8.0. The user interface is
the EMUI 8.0 (Emotional User Interface), which was developed especially for Huawei devices, complements
the Android operating system and facilitates the operation of the device. Thus, the smartphone can be perfectly adapted to one’s own needs. Individual applications can be easily grouped into folders.
Very good I find, the own phone management system with which the phone can be optimized and cleaned very quickly to save power consumption and memory space.

The large display (1440×720 pixels- see photo / difference between Samsung and Huawei) is excellent and even in daylight you can use this device. The display diagonal is a little more than 15cm and is an ideal companion through the multimedia world. A protective foil is also attached to the screen at the factory, which saves you the trouble of searching and attaching your own foils.

The smartphone is equipped with two cameras. The front cam has a resolution of 8 megapixels and takes very nice and clear photos. With the rear camera, which has 13 megapixels, you can take razor-sharp pictures and share them instantly.

Another important feature is the fingerprint sensor, which not only unlocks the phone, but also lets you control apps.

Standard connectors (like Micro-USB or 3,5mm jack for headphones) are available and very well integrated into the housing.

The battery life is really good despite the large display and convinced me already in the
first week. According to the manufacturer, the device should allow up to 21 hours of talk time, but I only had to fully charge the device again after the second day.
Very positive I find the ultra power saving mode, which limits the phone to its basic functions
like phone, SMS, camera etc. and you only have to recharge the device after 3-4 days

In total I find the product from Huawei price/performance-wise very good and therefore I rate it with 5 stars, because it fully meets my requirements.

I’m 54 years old and I was just looking for a smartphone that has room for two SIM cards + one SD card. The reasonably good WLAN reception and a strong battery has and can take usable pictures.

Become I have a cell phone that does not meet exactly these conditions. The HUAWEI Y7 has a really good WLAN reception. I live on the second floor of a 3 floor house and we have an underground car park under the house where I also park my car. When I enter the basement of the house through the steel door HUAWEI Y7 is already connected to my WLAN when I go up the first staircase, i.e. when I arrive at the first floor. So far I have only had this with another cell phone. The others connected to my WLAN only from the first floor. At the earliest. Usually only on the stairs up to the second floor. This is a big plus for the HUAWEI Y7.

The pictures the cell phone makes I like. I’m not the photo expert now but for snapshots (also in the apartment) it’s enough. The picture quality is absolutely ok. Of course it works better, but then the cell phones cost a few hundred more.

The battery is strong enough to last the day, with normal use it can be quite a second day. I make a few phone calls a day, write WhatsApp and read my emails. From time to time I also go to the internet but everything within limits. But I have Bluetooth and GPS on all the time.

The HUAWEI doesn’t really have a lot of apps preinstalled and the content is cleaned up in no time..

The voice quality is very good and the menu is easy to use. Android 7 was already installed and I didn’t have to do a tiresome system update first. During the first installation theHUAWEI Y7 asked me if I want to take over and install the apps from my other phone (a Samsung J5 2016). After a short confirmation it immediately installed these apps for me.

But now I come to my point of criticism. The HUAWEI Y7 is sold as a Dual SIM phone. This is only partly correct. Yes, you can use two Nano-SIM cards, but then no memory card goes in. So you have to decide either for two SIM cards or one SIM and one Micro-SD memory card. And since the HUAWEI has only 16GB of memory, it will become very quickly difficult to get along without a memory card in the long run. But since I permanently need two SIM-cards in my cell phone I have no choice.

Overall the HUAWEI Y7 looks really great and elegant. It has a good WLAN-reception and with 2GB RAM it is fast enough on the road. Unfortunately it is only limited usable with the either/or SIM card function which makes a purchase decision much more difficult.

The Chinese company Huawei proves that it does not always have to be Samsung and iphone. I already had a cell phone of this company and used it for over 2 years. Therefore, I have already something presupposed to hold a good cell phone in the hands again. After the first unpacking and putting into operation, I was also confirmed again. Huawei makes great cell phones, which simply work and are also high quality manufactured. The cell phone is grey/silver and has a matt surface. I immediately bought a suitable screen protector and a cover – because smartphones remain smartphones and want to be protected from falling, so that you can enjoy them for a long time.

The cell phone is nice and light and has a large display. The touching works very well and quickly. It takes quite a long time to start up the phone. But when it is up, it has fast reaction times. In total you can use 10 GB of the 16 internal GB. That’s not that much, but you can add a memory card to the phone. The cell phone is more for those who mainly use it for phone calls and want to surf the internet from time to time. I wouldn’t want to play games-heavy apps on it – there’s still some room for improvement.
The camera is quite ok, but it can’t compete with the camera of a Samsung S7 – of course. But the latter costs 3 times as much.
The night shots are rather grotty.

The sound of the cell phone is quite good. Headphones are also included and you can hear over them. Bluethooth connections are also very stable and the cell phone also finds other devices quickly.

All in all, the price-performance ratio is definitely right here! 160 € for a Smartphone is already very cheap. That you have to make compromises in memory and photo quality is quite clear. But if you only want to make phone calls and want to have a good cell phone for it, you are well advised here. It does not always have to be iphone and Samsung and Co.

The 5.5-inch Huawei Y7 smartphone offers a very good price-performance ratio: for under two hundred euros, you can get a current Android 7.0 version, a 12 megapixel main camera with an 8 megapixel front camera, as well as 2 GB of working memory and 16 GB of internal memory.

Furthermore, the Y7 is well made and looks very pretty in the rose-gold version – maybe a little feminine? – looks. After the uncomplicated setup of the smartphone I positively notice the slightly rounded display and the bright colors. In addition, the display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels in HD.

Surfing and scrolling of Internet content is smooth. Even less resource-saving games such as Real Racing 3 can be played with the Y7, you only have to accept an increased heat development on the backside.
The powerful 4,000 mAh battery lets the Y7 last for about two days, even when used frequently.

The Y7 has two nano-sim card slots and can therefore be operated dual. However, one sim card slot is also designed for a MicroSD card. So you have to decide between a memory expansion (up to 128 GB) or a dual sim use.

The transmission of calls during phone calls is clear and without delay. But what I noticed negatively is that the dialing (not the connection establishment) of some phone numbers from the contacts is only done after a minimal delay. This peculiarity I could initially also notice on my old Huawei G 750 Dual-Sim Smartphone. After three years of use, however, my former smartphone needed several seconds to dial a phone number after pressing the green handset symbol. I hope that this does not happen with this device.


>The Y7 meets today’s requirements at a very fair price! The disadvantage is the durability: Huawei never provided an update even for the former flagship G750. If the system works slowly after some time or if certain apps are no longer installable due to outdated Android systems, you have to buy a new one.

Model: Huawei Y7/2018
Color: black

A very nice entry-level model,
Dual-SIM function and additional memory card function/16 GB mass storage, for unlocking, the fingerprint sensor can be used, which allows quick access.

Accessories are a charger with USB cable and a headset and a device for opening the SIM drawer. The warranty for Huawei smartphones is 24 months.

The battery has a good runtime of at least 72 hours and can also be recharged quickly. With a completely empty battery, however, it takes about 2 hours.

Calls and music sound very clean and noise-free, music playback
also works clearly via Bluetooth. of 1.440 x 720 pixels,
Mirroring display where fingerprints are always visible, it is recommended to use a case/protective foil

Android 8. 0, with user interface EMUI, through the phone clone app, the data can be transferred very quickly from the previous smartphone.

It has a reflective surface, a low display brightness, which makes it difficult to see anything on the screen when outdoors
The main camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels, acceptable for snapshots, the front camera has a resolution of 8 megapixels, which of course does not replace a camera.

My conclusion a good price-performance ratio, for an entry-level model, for communication and quickly look something up on the Internet completely sufficient.

Much thanks to the manufacturer

Hello everyone,
I bought this smartphone for my grandmother and now I would like to share my experience with you:

# First impression and design
I ordered the smartphone in silver. The front of this version of the smartphone is white, the back is silver. With its 5.5 inches, it fits well in the hand and has a valuable feel. On the underside are the speaker and micro USB port on the front/top side is also a speaker and the 8MP front camera positioned.

# Functionality:
Despite multiple exposure to games, WhatsApp and Internet, the smartphone runs smoothly all around. Sure, current high-end games are not possible, but this fact should be clear with the budget.
The camera also fulfills your purposes. In the right light, both front and main camera can be used for good snapshots. In darkness or in dim light conditions photos are rather difficult, but still ok.
The operating system is Android 7.0 and the Huawei in-house interface Emotion-UI. This is also up to date.

Whoever wants to acquire a fully functional low-budget smartphone is at the right address with the Huawei Y7. No matter if young or old, the target group is broadly diversified and can be recommended to everyone. If someone wants to buy a smartphone with a better processor but similar price range, one should choose the P-Lite series. P8-Lite seems to be similar to the Y7.

This is the first huawei in our household and thus the first time we were confronted with a user interface from this manufacturer. We are used to the user interface designs of Apple, Samsung and LG. But Huawei is again completely different from the Android versions of LG and Samsung. If you are using an Adroid smartphone for the first time, however, you will quickly find your way around, because the handling is not at all bad, just unusual.

Theoretically, the Y7 smartphone can be operated with two SIM cards, but then you have to do without the upgrade (up to 128 GB) by a micro SD card. And since the device only provides 16 GB of memory, about half of which is already used, dual SIM operation is not possible. After all, with the quite good 12 megapixel camera, you want to take pictures without having to delete them from the device again. Not everyone has a flatrate to be able to transfer their pictures to a cloud anytime and anywhere.

Nice is the light emitting diode, which I am missing on my current Samsung smartphone and which can be used for notification
Unice is that there is no hardware button below the display to access the home screen or to wake up the huawei from sleep. We both miss this button very much.

The Huawei Y7 is a low-cost, high-performance, entry-level smartphone equipped with a good camera. If you already had SMs from other manufacturers, you should try this one yourself before.

She (my wife) has bought a small Nokia cell phone for 21 Euro at Amazon years ago, she said, this is enough until the end… (she is just 60+).
I finally bought her this mei oh mei and typed and wiped it for days (very hard to get used to for beginners). The instruction of my wife was like a driving test. And when she goes out of the house now, she prefers to take the SmartPhone with her instead of yours truly (I’ll call you…). So much for that.
The device works perfectly, the operating system is logically structured, programs offer a lot – you can take great pictures, text, surf, look, email, even make phone calls (I made a selfie right away from my wife – Uaah-hahahahaha). My God, she hardly has time to cook anymore!
Well, this review is certainly not a purchase decision for anyone, but it is nice to read and proves that even old people are open-minded towards new things (occasionally). But I have to mention a small shortcoming (probably I’m really too stupid here): I downloaded the Huawei software HiSuite from the Chinese internet to my PC to make it easier to use the cell phone in the network, but it doesn’t work and PC is crazy. What a pity!
Also positive: The super price! You (woman) don’t have fear of divorce, if it falls down or is stolen…

The Huawei Smartphone is a good cell phone for beginners. If you don’t know Android yet and maybe have only used button phones before, you should download the user manual from the manufacturer’s site, unfortunately it’s not included.

The smartphone looks nice and fits well in the hand. The display is large and bright enough, as long as you don’t look at it in direct sunlight. The memory is unfortunately limited with 16GB. Especially the operating system and the pre-installed apps need some of the memory capacity. Therefore I have deleted unused apps for now. Besides the Nano-SIM card you can also use a MicroSD memory card to increase the memory capacity.
The battery can be charged with the included charger or via USB cable on the PC. The smartphone apparently does not have a quick charging option. With 4000 mAh the battery is powerful and lasts for a long time. The main camera has 12 megapixels, the front camera 8. The image quality is okay, but not outstanding. But in this price range you can’t expect much more. All in all a usable smartphone, easy to use and with a good battery. With the price/performance ratio it deserves 5 stars.

So far everything works fine as it should. Hope that will remain so. Huawei surface takes some getting used to, but looks quite good and is easy to use. Cell phone is as described, has notification LED and also notification sound. No problems with mails and SMS but with Facebook App I didn’t get sound or LED when I receive new messages. Will probably have to look further…but still clear purchase recommendation for the device. Reasonable price and solid equipment.
EDIT: now it’s half a year and switches off or restarts every now and then! Such a crap but also. All I do is make a phone call, read a little Whatsapp and facebook and look at photos (from SD) and email. It can’t be that after such a short time it doesn’t work anymore, no reset helps! So now no more recommendation from me for the part.

Now the internet doesn’t work abroad anymore (DE,GB) and everything was set up correctly, but it didn’t work, even if it’s only a second cell phone, it annoys me because there are a lot of better devices at that price, the app icons disappear from the display and only with reset it works again for a while, I think the software has a big bug or the hardware has a defect. I’m thinking about complaining about this, don’t like to do something like this but even my chinese cell phones work fine! If the expensive devices are better at Huawei would interest me.

I gave my mother this smartphone for her birthday. Normally, she has a hard time with new technology, but she quickly made friends with it. The operation is actually self-explanatory, the large display makes it easy to read and write SMS or Whatsapp messages. It doesn’t take five clicks to change the operating mode or switch from WLAN to mobile data. The camera is great if you don’t want every photo to be a work of art in itself. Someone who organizes and spreads out their entire life digitally certainly doesn’t like Huawei. But for people who use a smartphone for everyday tasks such as making phone calls, whatsapp, checking e-mails and occasionally googling, it’s worth it.

My son bought this smartphone with his birthday money. He has been using it since Sep. 2017 and I have not heard any complaints from him yet. Purchase criteria were: Android 7.0, current model from summer 2017, the generous memory and of course the price. The large display must also be mentioned. The smartphone is used by a 13 year old, but some of them are very busy, so I simply conclude that it is a good smartphone. No dropouts while playing. Connection to Bluetooth devices works fine as well. The only problem is that my son often loses his charger cable, so the parents can look for their charger cables. But this problem cannot be solved so quickly.

Cheap price with full performance! The cell phone has convinced me! I used to be a HTC user and wanted to switch to a new phone after the batteries had worn out after about 1 year. How it looks like with the cell phone in one year, I can’t judge yet, but currently the battery life is outstanding! I only have to recharge it every 3 days, even though I use it all day long (messages, retrievals, internet, but only 1-2 times a day for phone calls).
The model is not very well known, which makes me wonder. It’s really top! br>Why someone would spend 400 EUR or more on a similar phone is not obvious to me when there is such a great and cheap alternative.
