Huawei Y3 2017 Specifications Review
Design & Display
The Huawei Y3 has a 5.0 inches IPS LCD display with a resolution of 480 pixels x 854 pixels at 196PPI. Icons and images displayed on the screen look good. Although this resolution is lower than what you get in most budget phones these days, it is a pretty good screen with accurate colors.
The Y3 2017 dimensions are 145.1mm x 73.7mm x 9.5mm. It weighs 175 grams. It is really easy to hold and use this smartphone in one hand.
Huawei Y3 2017’s body is very simple and plain. Not much can be said about its design. The earpiece is at the center, just above the display. The front camera is on the left. Its volume rocker and the power button are on the right side. The 3.5mm headphone jack is at the top. MicroUSB connector and the speakers are at the bottom.
Huawei Y3 2017 : Hardware, Software & Performance
Huawei Y3 is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6737М processor supported by 1GB of RAM. These make it fit to run all the basic applications. You should expect all the basic Android applications, WhatsApp, Facebook and other to run smoothly. However, if you are heavy user or gamer, this smartphone is not suitable for you. You might get stuck when you run several heavy applications at the same time.
This smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Emotion 4.1 UI on top. This is a little disappointing since this phone was launched when Android v7.0 Nougat was already here. That aside, like other Huawei phones, this phone has one of the best organized interfaces.
You get 8GB internal storage from the Huawei Y3 2017. Again, this is a little disappointing since most phones in it price range provide at least 16GB internal storage space.
This phone supports 4G networks in Kenya. It is one of the cheapest 4G handsets you can buy right now.
This phone comes with an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera. The 8MP back camera comes with an LED flash light. The performance of this camera is satisfactory. It captures good quality images in places with good lighting. Its performance is also impressive in areas with low light. The primary camera can record 720p videos and it comes with features like autofocus, face detection, touch focus and geo-tagging.
The 2MP front facing shooter is good enough for video calls and selfies. It captures decent quality images in places with adequate light.
The Y3 2017 comes with a 2200mAh non-removable battery. Under moderate use, this battery powers the phone for a full day after a full recharge.
