Never have I ever seen a smartphone manufacturing company make two models of a low range budget smartphone. But there is a first time for everything. We will talk about that in a moment. Huawei added to its Y line of budget smartphones the Huawei Y3 (2017). It is the 2017 version since there is another version of this smartphone from a different year. This one is the second of its name. This article will describe the above listed features and try talk about them in depth to help in decision making by whosoever wishes to buy this phone. It is a budget smartphone so the issue of how much it costs is of no question, anyone may afford it if they so wish to. Let us see more about Huawei Y5 (2017).
Design and build
So just like the original Huawei Y3, this one has a simple finish and a not so sophisticated design. It comes with a hard plastic build. Measuring 145 mm x 74 mm x 9.5 mm, Huawei Y3 (2017) weighs 175 grams. . Its front side has the 5.0 inches display panel, Huawei branding on the bottom bezel, a sensor, the call speaker and a selfie camera. On the back we see a centrally placed primary camera with the LED flash besides it. Below the camera is Huawei’s logo. Volume rocker and power button are all on one side of the Huawei Y3 (2017). A simple smartphone it is, just as one would expect of a phone in its range.
Display and camera
It comes with a 5.0 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen of 16 M colors and one that supports multi touch. The display is of 64 % screen to body ratio and has a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels (196 ppi pixel density).
Huawei Y3 2017 is not a camera phone. So one should not expect exceptional camera performance from it. It has two camera. Its primary camera is an 8MP shooter of aperture f/2.0, with auto focus and has an LED flash while its selfie camera is a 2MP shooter. This selfie camera will best serve in video calls and not in capturing memorable pictures. The primary camera is the better of the two. Video recording is supported by this smartphone as well and it kicks in at 720p@30fps which is quite impressive for a low range budget phone.
Performance and memory
At the beginning of this article I mentioned that Huawei made two models of a low range device. Here is what I meant. You get to choose between two versions of the Huawei Y3 2017. The first is a Mediatek MT6737M device with a quad core 1.1 GHz Cortex A53 CPU and Mali T720MP2 GPU and the second one is a Mediatek MT6580M device with a quad core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 CPU and Mali 400MP2 GPU.
Both versions however run on 1GB of RAM and have 16GB of expandable internal memory up to 128 GB using an SD card.
They both run Android Marshmallow with EMUI v 4.1
The phone comes with a non removable 2200mAh battery.
Huawei did a decent job with its budget phone Huawei Y3 (2017). It is a phone I would quickly suggest to a shopper on a budget. Comes with the choice of five colors- gold, pink, blue, white and gray.
