Huawei Y6P: We analyze the latest «low cost» from Huawei

Huawei continues with its official launch calendar for this year 2020, and although we recently saw the Huawei P40 Pro of which you have the analysis on our website, now it plays with a radically different terminal, and it is that Huawei as a large mobile phone manufacturer that It is has a range of products of all categories from the highest range to the entry range. This "low cost" range is what brings us here today, We are going to carry out an in-depth analysis of the new Huawei Y6P, one of the cheapest terminals that Huawei has available in its catalog.

As almost always, we accompany this analysis of a video with unboxing, the test of the cameras and a lot of interesting content, so we invite you to go through the video first and take advantage of this to know its operation in depth and take the opportunity to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Design and construction materials

This Huawei Y6P is made entirely of plastic, even its back, which has a good glass effect, is made of plastic and, as usual, it greatly attracts fingerprints. Nevertheless, This plastic also helps to contain its weight since we have a somewhat larger battery than normal. For its part, we have quite contained measures taking into account both the price and its 6,3-inch panel.

  • Size: 159,07 x 74,06 x 9,04 millimeters
  • Weight: 185 grams

To the hand it fits quite well, We have a drop-type notch for the front camera and a frame at the bottom somewhat more pronounced than the others. In the back we have the fingerprint sensor and the entire button panel is on the right side of the device. It has been released in purple, black and the green unit that we have tested.

Technical characteristics

We start from the basis that this Huawei y6p It is an input device, this means that we will have enough hardware for daily tasks but adjusting as much as possible at a lower price. Therefore, despite the dance of specifications in other countries Huawei in Spain has opted for a processor of Mediatek, the low-power MT6762R as well as the IMG GE8320 650MHz GPU, all accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 64GB storage for all models without possibility of variation.

In our experience and taking into account that we have the latest compatible version of EMUI 10.1 accompanied by Android 10 in its AOSP version performance has been favorable for classic social media, instant messaging, mail management, and browsing tasks. Obviously it falters if we try to play with it, for example Asphalt 9. In short, we must be clear that we are facing a basic terminal to carry out day-to-day activities but from which we cannot demand too much almost in any generalized aspect. As an advantage, we have a fairly contained battery consumption.

Multimedia and connectivity section

In the multimedia section we have a panel 6,3 inch IPS LCD that occupies a good percentage of the screen but has a HD + resolution de 1600 x 720 pixels. Despite having a good fit and sufficient brightness as can be seen in the video, we find a rather poor pixel density if we take into account the size of the panel, and this has seemed to me one of the weakest points of the terminal. As for the sound, the lower part has a classic speaker within the input range with a fairly high sound but lacks midrange and bass.

Connectivity is left with a tray DualSIM as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC connection. As to WiFi we only have connection to 2,4 GHz networks something that I have not finished understanding, especially since 5 GHz networks offer more speed and are already highly popular in Spain. Obviously we have compatibility with networks LTE 4G therefore, we will not miss absolutely anything in this section, without forgetting the rest of the typical Huawei connections (Huawei Beam ... etc) as well as the fact that the microUSB at the bottom is OTG, we can connect external storage to it.

Camera and autonomy test

As for the rear camera we have three sensors: 13 MP (f / 1.8) for the traditional sensor, 5MP (f / 2.2) for a Wide Angle sensor and a third 2MP (f / 2.4) sensor designed to improve the result of photographs with portrait effect. For the front camera we have 8MP (f / 2.0). What we do not have is an optical stabilizer in the camera, so video is where it suffers the most. We do not have "night mode", so the camera suffers a lot when lighting conditions drop, but the result and versatility is interesting considering the price.

In terms of autonomy we have a huge 5.000 mAh battery that taking into account the hardware limitations has made us last two full days (and a little more) in the tests. We have a 10W charger (up to 2 hours of charge) included in the package and we can use the microUSB as an external battery, that is, to charge other devices. Obviously we do not have wireless charging since the device is made of plastic. The battery is undoubtedly one of the strongest points of this Huawei Y6P and it carries it by flag in any of its editions of course.

Price and launch

The Huawei Y6P is available on the market from the next day May 25 in the Huawei Store and the main points of sale from € 149in any of the available colors. Soon it will also be available in the main points of sale such as Amazon, El Corte Inglés or Huawei physical stores. Undoubtedly an entry terminal at a contained price whose main negative point is not being able to count on Google Services natively, a pity that due to factors external to Huawei itself we continue to have limitations in terms of software.
