Some Unique Features of the Huawei y5 (2017)

The list of specs of the Huawei Y5 (2017) is very long. It is not easy to decide whether to buy this smartphone or reject it based on this list of specifications. This is why it becomes essential to explore some unique features of the Huawei Y5 (2017).

Light Weight:

Let’s not talk about its 5.5 inch display size. This is something common in many smartphones. What makes the Huawei Y5 (2017) a treat for smartphone users is it’s light weight. It is only 150 grams. This 150 gram weight includes the weight of its 3000 mAh battery.

With the Huawei Y5 (2017) in your hands, you will feel as if you are not holding much of anything at all. It is light as a feather.

Width, Height, and Depth:

These three are very special specifications of Huawei Y5 (2017). Its 72MM width and 143.8 MM Height make it very easy to hold. You can even fit it into your pocket. Talking about the depth of 8.35 MM, it ensures very low screen-to-body ratio to provide you the ultimate smartphone experience as if you’re holding only a display in your hand.

3000 mAh Battery Capacity, 2GB RAM and 16 GB Internal Memory:

Battery life of a smartphone has always been an issue for smartphone users. The Huawei Y5 (2017) also falls in the category of smartphones that provide less than optimal battery life. A lot of companies like Samsung, Sony, LG, and even Xiaomi are providing batteries of more than 4000 mAh in their smartphones. This is the one area where the Huawei Y5 (2017) may not impress users.

It’s 2GB RAM and 16 GB of Internal Storage puts the Huawei Y5 (2017) far behind in comparison to  smartphones provided by market leaders like Samsung, Apple and Nokia etc. Therefore, users may not find the Huawei Y5 (2017) good enough to exceed their expectations on performance.

Final Words: The Huawei Y5 (2017) also has a very intuitive keyboard and many features to make life easy for you. But Business class users should stay away from it because of its average battery life, RAM, and Internal memory.
