Ask a Question

Buy the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 (16GB) in Black from Connected Devices.

The Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) with smaller bezels than last year’s Y5. It feels solid even though it’s made of plastic and its unibody design make it feel better in the hand. No camera bulge and thus no toppling when placed on a flat surface. The rear camera and LED are horizontal at the top left corner. You won’t find a fingerprint scanner but that shouldn’t hold you back.

The phone comes with a 720p 5.45-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen in an 18:9 aspect ratio that stretches up to 74% screen to body ratio. The 295 ppi density provides stunningly enough visuals for media consumption, especially in landscape. 

The Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) runs on Android 8.1.0 Oreo with a MediaTek MT6739 chip with Quad-core processor that runs at a speed of 1.5GHz. The PowerVR GE8100 graphics processor takes charge of the graphics and clocks at 570MHz. Under the hood, the phone comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage but if that feels a little short, there’s space available to upgrade up to 128GB with a memory card.

The Huawei Y5 Prime(2018) comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The main camera has f/2.2 aperture and an LED flash. The front camera has a complimentary selfie toning flash that automatically detects the lighting and adjusts the brightness.

The rear camera with features like Panorama, continuous shooting, exposure compensation produced nice shots worth sharing across social media. The AI beauty mode will come in handy especially when taking selfies. Both cameras do a commendable job during the day and in well-lit places.
