The back cover is removable. When you remove it, you get access to the dual SIM card slots and the microSD card slot.  The battery is not removable.

The 5.0 inch super AMOLED screen on the Huawei Y5 2017 has very good color reproduction.  This phone can automatically adjust the brightness of the screen depending on the environment. This means that you will always be able to view the screen even when you are out in the sun. This display also offers good viewing angles.

Hardware, Software & Performance

The Huawei Y5 2017 comes with a quad-core MediaTek processor clocking at 1.4GHz. This is coupled with 2GB of RAM.  With this phone, you will be able to perform all the normal day to day tasks without any lagging issues. Applications open and close smoothly on the Y5 2017.

The Y5 2017 runs on Android v6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei’s EMUI v4.1 on top.  It is a little disappointing that Huawei decided to go for Android M when Android N had already been launched.  Nevertheless, EMUI customizes the phone and makes the interface simple and easy to use.


The Huawei Y5 2017 comes with an 8MP primary camera and a 5 MP front facing shooter. These cameras are quite impressive. The 8MP back camera comes with f/2.0 aperture and it captures pretty good pictures especially in well-lit areas.  The images captured by this rear camera have very good colors.

The 5MP front camera also capture very good images in areas with good light. It comes with an LED flash for low light photography.


This phone has very good battery life, thanks to its power efficient processor and its 720P display.  The Huawei Y5 2017 can easily take you through a day of moderate to heavy use after a single charge.
