Huawei Y6 2018


Huawei's Y-series phones are its budget offerings, where fancy features are somewhat compromised in the name of reaching a particular price point. However, that's absolutely par for the course in the budget space and it does have a few individual standout points that make it worthy of consideration.

Design

  • 5.7-inch display
  • Headphone jack

Camera

  • Basic rear camera
  • Beauty mode for selfies

Performance

  • Snapdragon 425 is a good choice at this price
  • 16GB of onboard storage, but only around 9GB accessible
  • Huawei's EMUI launcher can be messy

Battery

  • 3,000mAh battery

Pricing and availability

  • The Huawei Y6 2018 retails in Australia for $159
  • It's also available as a prepaid phone through Optus

Huawei's affordable handset

The Huawei Y6 2018 provides solid value for the budget phone buyer.

Promoted

The Huawei Y6 2018 has an aggressive price point of just $159, just a shade cheaper than many of its competitors. It's very much a story of being priced towards that budget market that can accept its performance compromises, but if that's you, it's worth considering alongside handsets such as the Nokia 2.1 or LG K9.
