The newest entry-level phone from Huawei is the Y5p. It was launched alongside its bigger brother Y6p. Let’s see full features and the price.
Huawei Y5p comes in 3 different colors, the Midnight Black, Phantom Blue, and the Mint Green.
The Unit we have here is in Phantom Blue with the 2gbRAM and 32GB storage. Personally, I love the texture of this phone. It’s very sleek and the slight texture at the back gives you additional grip. At the back you can also see the camera alongside its led flash and just below the camera is the microphone. Good news guys, it still has a headphone jack found at the top part of the phone. On the left side is the dual nano-sim tray with a dedicated sd card slot. This is very nice since the internal storage is just 32gb, you might want to add more memory to it. It can accommodate up to 512gb of sd card. At the bottom part are the micro-USB port and microphone. on the right side are the volume rockers and the power/lock button. At the front is the selfie camera and the earpiece that will also serve as the loudspeaker. Sadly, it doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, but it has AI Face Unlock which is also pretty fast. You can also use a password, pin or pattern.
Just like other new Huawei phones, Huawei Y5P still doesn’t have google play apps. But then the Huawei app gallery basically has almost all of the top applications that you might need so that should not be a problem.
5.45′ IPS LCD screen 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~295 ppi density)
The screen is not bad. It has natural colors. But of course, we cannot expect a very good display since it is an entry-level phone. It doesn’t have a notch so the notch-haters might like it.
Android 10, EMUI 10.1, no Google Play Services
Mediatek Helio P22 (12 nm)
I tested it using Asphalt 9. It still has entry-level performance, not being able to generate all the graphics and with some framedrops. But surprisingly it was able to handle the game.
8 MP, f/2.0.
As expected, when used outdoor with good lighting, the images are good. But when in low light situations, the images are already soft. But the output is still acceptable.
We tested the battery by playing YouTube videos continuously in full brightness.
From 47% to 60 % it took me 21 minutes. and for it to reach 100% it took me 1 hour and 38 mins.
So basically, it will take more than 3 hours if we will start from 0% up to 100% of the battery. Yes, the charging time is very long, but then since the battery life is good, Y5p’s battery is still good for me.
For me, Huawei Y5p is worth the buy, especially for its big storage capacity and good battery life. If we are going to compare it with Samsung A10s which also has 2gbRAM and 32GB ROM and has Helio P22 chipset but priced as 5,990, Huawei y5p will surely win. The advantage though of Samsung A10s is its 4000mAh battery, but the 3020mAh of Y5p is not too bad.
I recommend this phone to those students who have a very limited budget or for those who are looking for their secondary phones
