Huawei Y7p Full Review
Huawei Y7p Full Review
Hey what’s up guys, this is my Unboxing and a quick review of the Huawei Y7P, the Y7p is Huawei’s 2020 budget/midrange device that they make, this phone actually launched on the 7th of February early this year and it’s been what it’s been 3 months since we’ve had this now but it’ sonly just going for pre-orders in Nigeria this May till June I’ll have exact dates in the description of this video & also pricing and additional information. That being said, this is actually one of the finer devices that Huawei makes and we’re going to be exploring it since I’ve had it for a few days…
I’ll also have my timestamps in the description of this video so you can skip ahead to different sections of this video that you want to get quickly informed about. we’ve got the device itself in a semi-loose wrap, this is the Huawei Y7P itself and we’ll be keeping it to the side for now. There’s also a second smaller box which has the sim ejector tool. Inside this box is where we get the quick start guide, and the flexible case which does the job and I’ll recommend wearing if you want to preserve that gradient finish. Underneath that is the charging cable which is not a USB C one, unfortunately, we also have the power adapter and a headphone that’snot of the in-ear kind. Taking the wrap off the phone, you can see the front’s 6.39-inch display and on the back, I do like that really cool gradient effect it has and it’s sort of stroked inwards making it have a two-tone look for the same gradient. This device even has the sides in gradients, not something you see often as most others are like sandwiched designs, this is all round and I thought it was cool. I like that it sticks to the full gradient commitment. Allround gradient design even on the sides. Dope! The downside though is that it’s a fingerprint magnet. You can also see the fingerprint reader at the centre of the phone, triple camera branding beneath all the cameras and when you look downwards it’s just Huawei’sbranding and certification notes.
On the top of the device, there’s a microphone, to the right is the power button and volume keys, the left has the sim slot. This is a dedicated dual sim slot and it’s expandable by 512GB so you can have extra storage in addition to the 64GB it comes with. In some countries, you’ll get a hybrid sim slot but for Nigeria, it’s pure dual sim The bottom of the phone houses the headphone jack, nice to see, another microphone, USB port and speaker grille. The front of the phone has the 8MP front-facing camera in a punch hole style display. The earpiece is of course above it and when you take a look at the whole screen you’ll notice a slight chin. Another nice touch is that the device also has a screen protector on which I thought was a good move. The phone is actually lightweight in my hands and slim to the tune of 8.1mm even as it houses a 4,000 mah battery which we’ll talk about soon. It’s not glass on the back but a polycarbonate material, however, it does look and feel well designed. The colour is Aurora Blue and there’s another option, which is midnight black. In terms of the display quality of this device, Huawei uses a 720p display on here, 1520 by 720p to be exact and when I watched the video on it natively it can take on a 1080p video downscaled of course which would look sharper but if you’re going to be streaming on this guy, you’ll have to know that it’s a 720pdisplay and it’s going to be capped at 720p. Specification wise it’s, of course, an LCD panel, 82.4% screen to body ratio and a modest PPI of 269. Unfortunately, because Google services are not supported on newer Huawei devices, you get an error message when you launch the youtube but if you want to watch a YouTube video, you can do just that in the Web Browser or a browser like OperaMini. In a separate video which is all about the Huawei App Gallery, I’ll explain a couple of things there and will link that in the description. You do get the option to toggle on Eye Comfort which is a way of reducing Blue Light or essentially a blue light filter so it doesn’t strain your eyes, you can also increase text size and even display size as you wish and you can even change the fonts. In a cruel twist of fate you can hide the notch if you feel like the front-facing camera bothers you but why you would do that is beyond me really. I wish the system navigation setting was in the display menu but when you go to the system settings, you can see your navigation options, you can select between Gestures, Three Key Navigation and the third option which isn’t really an option per se but a style, of additional navigation, the dock, which places an opaque circle on your screen and you can use it to do home, recent tasks and back button commands, kind of Like a joystick. Also, guys, if you’re finding this video useful & have gotten to this point, I’d really appreciate it if you could leave alike so more people can get to see this video and do subscribe and click the bell icon beside it so you’ll be the first to know when I post new content and also that video explaining the Huawei App Gallery and how to better utilize your Huawei Smartphone. When you look at the sound quality of the Huawei Y7P, of course, it’s not a stereo speaker device, it’s more of a single loudspeaker at the bottom of the phone and it does sound decent. For my not so comprehensive test here’s how it did: When it came to the microphone quality itself in terms of me speaking on the phone, the device did do very well and it was more concentrated on the bass of my voice and of course, this phone has a dual-microphone system on here so audio recording for the video would be much better but it doesn’t have a stereo speaker so that’s also another angle to consider here, it did sound a little thin in comparison to the real song however it was decently loud but not super crisp or even bass-heavy it was more on the high notes side so you may not have problems with listening to voices out loud but for music, it’s just a bit faint but loud.
The Huawei Y7P currently runs on Android 9based on Emotion UI or EMUI 9.1.1 it did feel snappy during my use and it was something I liked about this device as well.
When you talk about processing power on the HuaweiY7P, you’re talking about the Kirin 710F, which was used on one of Huawei’s cool midrange devices last year, the Huawei y9 Prime 2019 which has a pop-up camera and I reviewed, you can watch that with the link below or the card up above, it did handle games well which I’ll come to and day to day tasks were not a problem for it. In terms of storage, I was a little bummed it had 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM but for a price 140 Euros which, when I did the conversion it was about 60,000 Naira and I think it would be more when its price is announced in Nigeria, I can’t complain. I’ll update the accurate pricing information in the description below. On the brighter side though, as I mentioned, you can, of course, increase your storage externally with a 512GB memory card. This phone does come with a big 4,000 mah battery and Huawei claims 22 hours of screen on time. It is actually capable of 10W charging and in the past few days I’ve had it, it did get me through till about 5 pm from about11am if I use it intensely of course. In terms of Gaming on the Y7P, I only noticed lags once in the past few days and that was on PUBG but all the rest of the way, it was really smooth. When I played games, call of duty, pubg and asphalt for a total of 30 minutes, it took the battery down by 10% all the way from 29%to 19% and this was consistent with my tests. When you talk about Biometrics and Security, of course apart from PIN, Patterns and passwords, we have Face Unlock and Fingerprint reader on the back. The Fingerprint reader was decently fast, it’s a physical one and not an on-screen one so that does help. Face Unlock did also do fine in enough light, however all the timesI’ve tried unlocking it in the dark doesn’t work, it would just give a not enough light signal. However, with some little light, you’ll be able to unlock this device with Face Unlock. As far as the cameras on the Huawei Y7P, from top to the bottom you’ve got a 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) sensor, the 12MP slash 48 MP, f/1.8(wide) angle camera, and the 3rd camera is the 8 MP f/2.4, (ultrawide), as well as the flash below. The selfie camera on the Huawei Y7P is an8MP f/2.0 sensor, no front-facing flash, just a screen flash, and from my tests, it was just okay and usable for social media, It looked noticeably sharp but a bit overexposed, the same thing goes for the portrait mode.
