About the Phone
Huawei Y7 Prime is a low mid-range phone. It has a few pros and cons:
- It has a large display which is quite bright and immersive.
- The Huawei Y7 Prime has a potent battery which keeps chugging the phone for most of the day.
- The dual camera module of the phone is quite efficient to click daylight shots.
- The Design of Y7 Prime is entirely redundant and unattractive.
- The display does not have adequate sharpness.
- The phone has a weak processor which can slow down the phone while multitasking or gaming.
- The low-light camera performance of this phone is inadequate.
Overall, as a budget mid-range phone, the Huawei Y7 Prime is good, but it isn’t a great phone. There are many competitors in the field with better specifications, making the Y7 lag in the market.
Huawei Y7 Prime is the premium brands weapon to capture the low mid-range market. Priced at Rs. 14,990, the phone may not look great, and neither does it have enough hardware to surprise you. Huawei Y7 Prime comes with a dated processor and poor design. While it does have a good battery and display, all of them are starkly dated. It is not a recommended phone.
Huawei Y7 Prime Price in India
The price of Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 smartphone in India starts at Rs.14,990. Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 was officially launched in the country on January 19, 2020. It has only one variant of 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage and also available in Black, Blue, Gold colours. The smartphone also supports up to 512 GB MicroSD card.
Huawei Prime Y7 has gone for a FullView dialogue with a long 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen is at 5.99-inch but has a disappointing 1440 x 720. However, it is quite pleasant, and the colours outdoors are bright and accurate. The colour is quite vibrant and warm, and you also have the option of fine-tuning the warmth as you please. Viewing angles are quite decent as well. However, the display cuts down on sharpness.
The Huawei Y7 Prime gets its power from the dated Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset with 3GB RAM. It could be found in G6 Play and Honor 7A. It receives a poor multi-core score of 2868 which is quite weak, and it even falls behind Honor 9 Lite’s low-end Kirin 659’s 3644. The home screen is a bit jittery, and the fingerprint scanner works slow for this reason. Web browsing speed is about reasonable but app-switching stutters a lot. Gaming performance is quite good with 3D games like PUBG running quite well in low settings.
Huawei has often opted to boost its camera setting to make it the best. Huawei Y7 Prime comes with a dual camera module of 13MP primary camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The portrait mode if this phone is quite good, making the subjects pop out and keeping the background blurred. However, it is sometimes poor with its poor edge detection. The Wide Aperture mode also lets you change the bokeh as you like too. The background is not pin-sharp, though. Apart from that, the phone produces mediocre images which tend to become overexposed. It struggles with the dynamic range as well. In low-light, the photos become murky. The phone comes with an 8MP selfie camera. The beauty mode is rather aggressive and not recommended. On the other hand, in natural settings, the selfies are ok but not good in low-light conditions.
The Huawei Y7 Prime comes with a 3000mAh battery, which is quite decent. It is quite economical, as running a 50-minute video found it lose just 13% of its charge. Gaming for 15 minutes with half brightness saw it drop about 7%. It can keep chugging on for a whole day with light and moderate use. It does have not fast charging and so may take more than 2 hours to go from 0-100%.
The Huawei Y7 Prime is a reliable phone which is quite competitive in its budget setting. However, as an entry-level phone, it faces specific issues. The phone does not have a great performance since many budget phones have moved on to Snapdragon 600 series chipset. However, considering that the phone was released in 2018, it can be expected. The battery of the phone is capable, but the camera module does not perform well and produces poor images. Plus, the phone is similar to Honor 7A and Honor 9 Lite. Moto G6 Play is a phone that has more poise though.
