Huawei Y7 Prime is the latest addition to the Huawei’s mid range family. It comes with an affordable price tag and offers amazing specifications.
Huawei, despite the low cost of the device, has chosen to use premium materials in the construction of Y7 Prime. It has a completely metallic body which gives it an elegant look as compared to its other competitors. The front of the device is very simplistic and consists of only the display along with earpiece, ambient light sensor, and the front facing camera. There are no physical buttons as Huawei has instead opted for on screen buttons used by Android.
The back of the device has the rear facing camera along with the fingerprint sensor. Aside from the traditional manufacturer logos, the back is mostly clean and sleek looking. The right side houses the volume rocker and the power button, both of which are tactile and easy to press. Th left side has a single hybrid dual SIM/SD card slot. The top of the device has the 3.5 mm headphone jack and the bottom consists of the loudspeaker grills and the micro USB port.
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 adequate for the price range and runs most mid level 3D games without any hiccups and issues. There is also no visible lag or performance hits while carrying out day to day tasks like opening/closing applications and multitasking a few tasks in the background.
With a 4,000 mAh battery, it is not preposterous to assume that this phone will provide good battery life. In fact, the whole selling point of this phone is its extraordinarily large battery life. Huawei has made sure to market the phone to its strengths and is making a good point of highlighting it this strength. With constant access to a wireless data connection, 4-5 background apps at one time, casual gaming and streaming from YouTube and other music applications, Huawei Y7 Prime easily lasts a whole day and good part of the next day.
Huawei Y7 Prime comes with a 12 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture. The aperture size seems to be a little low and this is reflected in some pictures taken during night time. Pictures which were taken in low light seem a little more blurry and lackluster in details than other competitors. During daytime, when there is ample amount of light available, the pictures come out well sharpened and with an acceptable amount of noise around the edges. Color reproduction is also accurate and overall pictures seem pleasant to look at.
