Huawei Y3 (2017)

Build and Display

At 5.0-inch, the Huawei Y3 (2017) offers you the ideal size for a modern smartphone. A large number of budget devices come in at 4.5 or 4.0 inches. The body appears to be made of plastic.

The Huawei Y3 (2017) is rather thick at 9.45 millimetres and weighs in at 170 grams. The display has an FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. You are looking at a pixel density of just about 196 ppi.

Camera and Storage

There is nothing spectacular in the camera department either. You get an 8 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The shooter offers autofocus, digital zoom and face detection features. It comes paired with a measly 2 megapixel front camera for selfies.

Huawei Y3 (2017) features onboard storage with a capacity of 8 GB, a common mark of budget smartphones. However, the microSD card slot lets you expand storage by another 32 GB – another source claims 128 GB.

Performance and OS
