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
