If you’re looking for a basic handset with a good display and top-notch specifications, Huawei’s newest series phone, the Y7 prime, boasts these features. To see how it holds up in other departments, here’s a rundown of its specs and features.
Despite the handset's low cost, Huawei opted to use premium materials in the creation of the Y7 Prime. Its full metallic body gives off an elegant appearance, unlike some of its rivals. On the front, the device appears very simple and only consists of the display, earpiece, selfie camera, and the ambient light sensor. You can find any physical buttons on the Y7 Prime, as Huawei has decided to flank it with on-screen buttons used by Android.
For its 5.5 inches large screen, Huawei opted to use a 720p display on the Y7 Prime. This is to ensure that the device offers a top-notch battery life. Although the screen looks pixelated with keen observation sense, it ticks nearly all other boxes, as it produces a good color reproduction and decent viewing angles.
High-Performing Budget Processor
Huawei has equipped the Y7 Prime with an Octa-core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor. It is a budget processor and performs well according to its price. The Adreno 505 GPU is also sufficient enough for the price range and runs most midrange 3D games without any issues and slowdowns. There is also no noticeable lag while performing day-to-day tasks like opening/closing applications and multitasking several apps in the background.
The Y7 Prime is equipped with the EMUI 5.1 software running on Android 7.0 Nougat. This one-of-a-kind software offers a unique experience, bringing in vibrant colors throughout its user interface. Due to the vivid colors and fun interface it offers, the EMUI software is more targeted towards a younger demographic. You won’t have any issues viewing the notification pop-ups, “recents”, and everything else since they are managed well.
Excellent Battery Life
With a 4,000 mAh battery, it is expected that this phone will provide an excellent battery life. In fact, the main selling point of this phone is its amazingly large battery life. Huawei ensures to market the device to its strengths and is doing an excellent job on it. With frequent access to a wireless data connection, multiple background apps at one time, casual gaming, and streaming from social media channels and applications, Huawei Y7 Prime easily lasts a whole day and still has juice left the next day.
With its 12 MP rear camera, the Y7 Prime offers decent images under low light and stunning photos during daytime, as they appear well-sharpened and smooth around the edges. Color reproduction is also accurate and overall pictures seem pleasant to look at. Meanwhile, its front camera comes with an 8-MP resolution and a f/2.0 aperture that provides bright and vibrant selfies.
