The Y7 Prime comes with a 5.5 inch 720p display. It is disappointing that Huawei chose to use a 720p display on this phone.  Most phones in it price range come with full HD displays.  However, there are a few reason why the company chose to use this display. Important reason that may have made the Chinese phone maker choose this display may be to maximize battery life and to improve performance.  Despite its low resolution, the display used on the Y7 Prime checks almost all boxes. It has good viewing angles and has impressive color reproduction.

Huawei Y7 Prime: The Camera

This smartphone ships with a 12MP back camera and an 8MP front facing camera.  The rear camera features a f/2.2 aperture.  Although this camera struggles a little in low light areas, it takes very good picture in places with adequate light.

The 8MP front camera comes with a f/2.0 aperture.  Since this aperture is slightly bigger than the one used in the back camera, the front camera seems to perform better than there rear camera in places with low light.  Low light selfies seem to be a little bit brighter.
