The first mid-range smartphone from Huawei to take full advantage of the Huawei Mobile Services is the Huawei Y7p. The smartphone is also one of the most affordable in the market to sport a punch-hole design. So if you’re looking for a smartphone with triple lens camera and a punch-hole design then you might want to take a look at this.
Huawei Y7p Review: Hardware and design
The Huawei Y7p is one of the stylish mid-range smartphones out there and honestly, it’s one of my favorites when it comes to design thanks to the colors that are available on the smartphone and also the effects at the back that gives you a rectangular rainbow effect that looks really nice.
The smartphone might look like this one is packing a glass design but actually, this one uses polycarbonate and it isn’t bad as this one feels solid to me when holding it along with the rounded edges on the sides of the smartphone. Since we have here rounded sides with a flat back, the smartphone isn’t as ergonomic as other smartphones with a curved back but this one will do just fine.
At the back is where you can find the fingerprint scanner of the smartphone and it works just fine and of course, there’s the face unlock too and it works well too. When it comes to ports, unfortunately, the Huawei Y7p still uses a micro USB port but there’s a headphone jack on this one in case you’re still using a wired one.
Since we got here a 48MP triple-lens camera on the smartphone, the Huawei Y7p does have a noticeable protruding camera at the back of the smartphone but thankfully, it wasn’t that big that the smartphone would wobble most of the time on a flat surface.
Huawei Y7p Review: Display
There’s a 6.39-inch HD+ display on the smartphone. Unfortunately, it’s just taking advantage of an HD+ resolution which means that the smartphone isn’t as crisp as expected. But what we like in this smartphone is the punch-hole camera and also the minimal bezels on the smartphone’s display.
Despite the HD+ resolution, this one does produce fine colors and it may not be as sharp as most Full HD+ displays, this one will do just fine when it comes to color reproductions.
Huawei Y7p Review: Battery life
The Huawei Y7p features a 4000mAh battery inside and we were able to install PC Mark on this one and we tested it on the Work 2.0 Battery Life and we got a score of 14 hours and 10 minutes. This is actually pretty good for a mid-range smartphone like this. However, the smartphone only packs a 10W charger which will take some time before you can fully charge your smartphone.
Huawei Y7p Review: Software
The Huawei Y7p is running on EMUI 9.1 that is based on Android 9 Pie. As expected, there’s no Google Mobile Services on the smartphone and instead, it takes advantage of the Huawei AppGallery for the apps and games. And in case the apps aren’t there, I’m just downloading my apps on APKPure. You can check out my software experience about the Huawei Y7p here:
As expected, the smartphone does come with the basic applications that you need on a Huawei smartphone. And if you’re worried about the storage, this one comes with 64GB of internal storage.
Huawei Y7p Review: Performance
The smartphone still uses the aging Kirin 710F processor along with 4GB of RAM. Well, the processor of the smartphone isn’t new and it’s already dated despite being faster than. The original – the Kirin 710.
Now, the Kirin 710F can run the most basic applications like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WeChat, and more but if you’re planning on playing games on this smartphone, you might want to turn down the settings of those games but yeah, you can play games such as Call of Duty Mobile and Asphalt 9 which is available on the AppGallery.
Huawei Y7p Review: Camera
For the camera, the Huawei Y7p features a triple-lens rear camera at the back and yes, it does come with 48MP main camera along with the 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera and also the 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, there’s the 8MP selfie sensor too.
The quality that I got on the smartphone is what I can expect on a mid-range smartphone with a 48MP sensor inside. The images that I shot were detailed and decent enough for a smartphone that starts at Php9,990. The Ultra wide-angle lens is also better than I expected but it isn’t an excellent one. The night shots were fine too for its price range and for selfies, I still find it a little bit lacking but I’m still satisfied with it. Check out our shots of the smartphone below:
For videos, thankfully, the smartphone can shoot at 1080p at 30fps which will do just fine for mid-range smartphones.
Huawei Y7p Review: Verdict
The Huawei Y7p does have a fine design and build quality. The smartphone is quite affordable too at Php9,990 and the triple-lens rear camera of the smartphone does a decent job. Although the processor might be dated since we’re using here a Kirin 710F processor, you can’t expect too much from this one. But hey, for its price, I still wouldn’t complain.
The Huawei Y7p is now available for Php9,990.
