Huawei’s launched another budget smartphone in the form of the Y3 2017. This smartphone belongs to the lowest category of the Y series smartphones with its target audience being the low-budget masses. With an expected launch price of 13,000 rupees and hitting the shelves come start of July 2017, the Y3 2017 doesn’t really gives us much reason to be optimistic about.
Design and build quality: pretty much what you’d expect from a budget device
The Y3 2017 features pretty much what you’d expect a budget device to offer both in terms of performance and build quality with small upgrades on the older Y3II. The device features predominantly plastic with little to no signs of metal at all. The plastic however is nicely polished but its obese dimensions, a 9.5mm width and 175g weight, are real buzz killers.
A large but disappointing display
While reading its specifications, we were really happy to see the device offering a 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen but then again, our happiness was pretty much short-lived. That’s primarily down to the reason that the display packs a mere 196ppi pixel density. That equates to a miser 480p resolution that does the large 5 inches display no favours whatsoever. However, for those who were hoping for a large display, you have your reasons to be happy about.
Cameras leave a bittersweet taste in our mouth
The smartphone’s primary camera features an 8 megapixel sensor with customary features such as an LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus and face detection. This is the sweat part of the cameras department as this amount of muscle is probably as much far a budget device within this price can go bar some superb Infinix devices.
The bitter part is that the selfie sensor only features a rather tame 2 megapixel sensor. It should’ve been at-least a 5 megapixel one as that’s the norm come 2017.
Doesn’t really offers much in the hardware department as well
The Y3 2017 is powered by a quad-core processor with a disappointing 1GB RAM at its back to help things move forward. As expected, the smartphone will fall some way short of your expectations as the built-in Android Marshmallow simply requires much more than this to run efficiently. That’s not the job of a budget smartphone anyway so the Y3 2017 has the ball in its court when it comes to this argument.
Its internal storage stands at 8 gigs with an external memory card slot expandable up to 128 gigs also in attendance. However, be sure to use the external storage wisely as it’ll further slow your phone down. A removable 2200 mAh battery juices the device which is, like everything else on the smartphone, vastly underpowered. Its 5 different colour schemes provide some sort of a silver lining to an otherwise disappointing smartphone from Huawei.
Huawei Y3 2017 pros:
- The smartphone commands an affordable price-tag
- The quantity of its display, at 5 inches is good but the 480p display kills its qualitative side
- An 8 megapixel primary sensor is great news
- Removable battery allows you to replace it in event of its degradation
Huawei Y3 2017 cons:
- Pretty obese dimensions
- The 480p display is a sure shot disappointment
- The 2 megapixel selfie sensor is underpowered
- Same is the case for its processing power and battery capacity
