Huawei is no stranger in the budget market and the Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) comes in as another in the Y-series this year. Cutting down on features like fingerprint scanner and some other specs, the smartphone is available at a budget price. There is also a simple design and some other implementations to make it affordable for all. Although the smartphone is not the kind to go for when it comes to stellar performance, it can hold its own against competition in the same league.

Design and Display

The Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) goes for a simple look with a plain design missing the trendy gradient look and have plastic casing.  There’s nothing really at the back except for the camera module and Huawei branding on the rear.

The earpiece speaker also.doubles has the main phone speaker which is often used for surround sound in other premium smartphones.

For a smartphone with an 8.3mm thickness, the smartphone is fairly light weighing just 142g. This can be accredited to the plastic build with black, gold blue colour options available.

Going a different way from the flock of recently released phones with a large display but still has the 18:9 aspect ration anyway.

Featuring a 5.45-inch screen, the smartphone has enough visual space for the routine surfing the net and even watching movies.  Not too big on resolution, the Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) has a 1440 x 720 pixels resolution which I a okay.

Battery and Camera

On the battery side of things, the smartphone does what most phone do and comes with an average 3k region capacity. It has a MicroUSB port for data transfer and charging while also sporting a 3, 020mAh battery.

For a budget smartphone, the arrangement seems like a good enough proposition not any different from what you would get from other OEMs at this price point.

Mobile photography also looks well enough with a 13MP camera on the back of the smartphone.

This is minus the AI tweaks and enhancement in more premium Huawei smartphones but it does have panorama, autofocus and other simple features.

Selfies on the smartphone is captured by a 5MP front camera with a flash of its own lighting up dim lit shots.

Hardware and Software

Speaking on what I refer to as the engine on the smartphone because of how it handles all the task from gaming to the simple task of opening apps.

That said, you’ve got a MediaTek MT6739 chipset with a  PowerVR GE8100 GPU tackling graphics. In addition, for storage there is only a meagre 16GB even if you can expand this to 256GB with a memory card. To help out performance, there is 2GB RAM and Android 8.1 Oreo from the box.
