Huawei Y6

The Huawei Y6  is a device that has a lot of power for the money. The device looks modern and has a decent display. Broadly, the Y6 reflects Huawei’s design traditions. However, Huawei Y6 has opted for a new case that incorporates narrower display bezels and helps make the Y6 look more modern than its predecessor. While the back is made from plastic, the case frame is made from metal. The removable back of last year’s model has gone, with Huawei moving the SIM slot from beneath the back case to the left-hand side of the frame. The display does distort when pressed hard, but only marginally so. Equally, while we could twist our review unit it did not creak or make cracking sounds when we did so. Huawei factory-fits a screen protector that protects the display, but it is difficult to remove and makes the display feel cheaper because of it. The Y6 is currently available in black, blue or gold. The frame catches the light, while the back is matte, the texture of which resists fingerprints well. Weighing 150 g (~5.3 oz), the Y6 is a light smartphone that weighs just as much as its predecessor. Likewise, the device is thin at 7.8 mm (~0.3 in) thick; although this means that the rear camera module protrudes by around 0.5 mm. The Y6 2019 has 16 GB of internal storage and 2 GB RAM. The Y6 2019 supports microSD cards up to 256 GB too. Cards can only be formatted as external storage, so apps cannot be stored on a microSD. The Y6 2019 has a micro-USB port that supports USB OTG. Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi Direct is the only other connectivity worth mentioning though as everything else is rather underwhelming. The Y6 2019 ships with Android 8.0 Oreo, on top of which Huawei installs EMUI 8.0. There are many configuration options, a drawback of which being that Huawei preinstalls various additional software that takes up precious internal storage. Our review unit had just 10 GB of internal storage left for user apps and files. Some of the preinstalled apps and games can be safely deleted and reinstalled from the Google Play Store when needed. The handset is expected to as an upgraded version of last year’s Huawei Y6 and Huawei Y6s phones. It is now known that the Huawei Y6 2019 features a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with waterdrop notch. It carries support for HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. The handset has a front-facing camera of 8-megapixel. The backside of the camera has a triple camera system that has a 13-megapixel main lens, a 5-megapixel ultrawide lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. A fingerprint scanner is placed on the backside of the device. The Helio P22 chipset is present under the hood of the Huawei Y6 2019 and 4 GB of RAM. The EMUI 10 based Android 10 OS comes preinstalled on the device. There is a 5,000mAh battery inside the device.
