Huawei does have a fleet of phones in the market, mostly boasting of impressive cameras that vendors are focusing to date. With such a striking feature, the primary concern of most would be the price. Like most aspiring brands, Huawei also offers budget and entry-level devices to the consumer market. They are easy on the pocket and one that people should check out is the Huawei Y6 2018.
On the outside, the Huawei Y6 2018 boasts of a 5.7-inch (720×1440 pixels) IPS LCD display. The device adapts to the current trend of most these days in terms of the display with an 18:9 aspect ratio that accounts for its impressive and pleasing display.
The physical buttons are located at the right portion while the tray card is positioned at the left side. The 3.5 mm audio port is positioned at the top while the micro-USB port is placed at the bottom alongside the phone speakers.
What makes the Huawei Y6 tick?
Being an entry-level device, it hardly comes as a surprise that the device would come with less than powerful specs. However, this would depend on how one defines that.
In the case of the Huawei Y6, it draws its power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Quad Core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 chipset backed by 2 GB of RAM. It also comes with 16 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256 GB) and a 3,000 mAh battery. Despite being an entry-level device, the Huawei Y8 is one of few phones to come out with Android 8.0 Oreo.
How good are the cameras?
One of the more important features that mobile phone junkies seriously consider is the built-in cameras. The Huawei Y6 does have a 13 MP main camera and front-facing 5 MP shooter. Considering most phones have bumped up their resolution requirements, these may not initially draw raves.
However, things change once folks get to use the snappers. Image and video capturing quality differ depending on the manufacturer and some may end up being surprised with the stunning image quality the Huawei Y6 2018 can capture.
The built-in beauty mode deserves part of the credit, the same feature that higher models have. Aided by the LED flash for both main and secondary camera, the photos and videos capture should be more than what a budget-conscious owner bargained for.
As far as gaming is concerned, the device can handle some apps role-playing or facing apps though likely with some hiccups. Being an entry-level device, the fact that it can accommodate some games to buy folks some time is already a bonus in itself.
