Awesome features for not a lot of money
Shopping around for a solid workhorse for not a lot of cash? Huawei’s got your back – their excellent Y7p budget phone has a great mix of features as well as a killer design that’s hard to beat despite retailing less than Php 10K in the Philippines. If you’re looking to make the most out of your money, it’s hard to argue with Huawei’s new budget device. Here are 5 reasons why:
Flagship-like design in a budget body
Budget phones are typically made for the mass market, and because of this they usually sport boring exteriors and safe, unremarkable designs. Not the Y7p – Huawei’s newest budget warrior uses a new, light refraction body design achieved by layering a reflective layer on the surface to produce a futuristic glare effect. You can go with the more conservative Midnight Black option, or go all out with the stunning Aurora Blue color variant of the device.
Big display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio
Love it or hate it, punch-hole notches are effective at increasing a phone’s over-all screen to body ratio compared to traditional notches. Because of the punch-hole notch on the Y7p’s beautiful 6.39-inch HD+ display, the phone manages to achieve a 90% screen-to-body ratio. That’s more than some other mid-range phones are able to achieve.
High-resolution, AI-powered triple cameras
Huawei’s Y7p is a perfect phone for budding mobile photographers, thanks to its triple camera module headlined by a high-resolution, 48-megapixel AI-powered main shooter.
The main camera is capable of producing vivid and detailed shots and has a dedicated Super Night Mode that supports hand-held stabilization and up to 6 second exposure time.
Aside from the main camera, there’s also an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle camera as well, and a 2-megapixel depth assist camera for more convincing bokeh effects in your photos. An 8-megapixel front camera is embedded in the punch-hole notch.
Fast, power-efficient processor
The Y7p is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 710F processor, paired with GPU Turbo 3.0 for maximum performance when playing Android games.
The phone is armed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can further be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card if needed.
The phone comes with Huawei’s AppGallery instead of Google Play, a rapidly growing alternative to Google’s offerings that’s not the third-biggest app store globally. Apps can be directly downloaded via AppGallery include TikTok, Gmovies, Gcash, Viber, Facebook, ShareIT. Other apps not available in AppGallery like Grab, Messenger, Waze and Mobile Legends can be downloaded via third-party apps and through the Huawei Browser.
The Kirin 710F is able to run most Android apps and games well with minimal issues.
Large battery for all-day endurance
The Huawei Y7p also comes with a large 4000mAh battery in its stylish body, which gives it more than enough juice to last for a whole day.
In fact, our PCMark Benchmark results for the phone put its overall battery endurance at 14 hours and 12 minutes, which means the phone is power-efficient enough to last for a day and a half with moderate use.
Huawei’s Y7p really is a fantastic budget phone for people looking to make the most out of their cash.
There’s a lot to love with the Huawei Y7p, and with a sticker price of just Php 9,990, it’s one of the best options that you can buy if you’re looking for a phone with plenty of bang-for-your-buck.
