Hey guys Justin here of your tech and a couple of days ago, Huawei released one of its most affordable mid-range smartphones. The huawei y7a many people, including us of course, were impressed with its specs, considering that it comes with such a budget-friendly price tag, but does the y7a deserve a spot in a room where realm and Xiaomi smartphones lead as most people’s top choices for a bang for the buck? The smartphone we’ll see? Undoubtedly, the y7a is one of the prettiest and most attractive smartphones. We’ve seen it comes in this subtle, pink gradient with its faint, pink tinge in the middle. No wonder this colorway is called blush gold. It does look like blush, however, it’s prone to fingerprint smudges and scratches due to its glossy coat, so users might have to slap on a jelly case to remedy that the body is made up of plastic, but it feels premium and solid. We love its slim profile and holding it feels comfortable.
It also comes with quite a heft at 206 grams checking out its rear. We get the vertically stacked, 48 megapixels, AI quad-camera setup, along with the Huawei branding upfront. We see a rather large dot notch in the middle of the screen that houses, the front camera and the call speaker and sensors. On top of it. We have the volume keys and the power or lock button, acting as the fingerprint sensor on the right side, the buttons feel sturdy and have a tactile feel to them.
On the left. We have a triple card slot that can accommodate a dual NATO sim and a dedicated micro SD card. Then up top, we get a noise-canceling microphone while down below there’s the USB type c port, the primary microphone, the 3.5-millimeter audio port, and a single speaker grille for displaying the y7a sports, a 6.67-inch full HD, plus IPS display with a resolution of 2400×1080. As far as quality goes it’s great, the colors are vibrant and punchy. It’s got a widescreen real estate, so users will definitely enjoy watching content on this phone.
We get several apps waiting to download. While we have the option to delete them, deleting them one by one can be cumbersome, but on the bright side, navigation is easy and users get nifty features like multi-window, which is especially useful when multitasking users can also take a screenshot by knocking on the screen, with a knuckle knocked once for taking screenshots and knock twice for taking screen record nice there’s also a huawei y7a assistant that shows you AI tips and news, feed and other services that you can personally customize.
As we have mentioned time and time again, Huawei doesn’t use Google mobile services but don’t worry as there’s the Huawei app gallery to download all the apps. You need. Some new top apps you can find here include speed, test, cash, tick, took VLC, and food panda, there’s also the petal search widget that allows you to install apps not only from the Huawei app gallery but also from official and third-party websites.
When it comes to connectivity, the y7a comes with Wi-Fi Bluetooth, 5.1, GPS, and 4g LTE. It offers a massive 5000mah battery with 22.5 Huawei supercharge. With this hands down, you get an impressive battery life on this phone. It could last us a day or two on a single charge which involves playing games and browsing on our social media. It can even last longer if you lower the display resolution.
As for charging, it took us less than nearly 2 hours, probably around an hour and 45 minutes for it to be fully replenished in the PC Mark’s battery test. The phone got a score of 22 hours and 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in our standard video loop test, it yielded an impressive 24 hours and 10 minutes. Okay, let’s finally talk about cameras. The Huawei y7a gets a quad rear camera setup, consisting of a 48 megapixel main an 8 megapixel 120 degrees, ultra-wide, a 2-megapixel depth, and a 2-megapixel macro.
It comes with the right amount of sharpness, though color production seems a bit saturated, even with AI turned off. Basically, what the AI does is boost the image’s saturation and at times, there’s not much difference with it turned off or on, so we prefer just having it turned off most of the time. The ultra-wide lens also does a pretty decent job, and we appreciate that it doesn’t produce much distortion, the six times, Zoom isn’t terrible either. As you can see in low light situations, photos came out muddy and noisy mostly when you use the ultra-wide lens. As you can see from these two photos, the night mode isn’t much of a help, though there are instances that shots look pretty decent with the night mode on for both.
Nonetheless, you can still get decent selfies with this phone now for videos, it can shoot up to 1080p at 60 frames per second for the rear and 1080p at 30 frames per second for the front camera. Just in case you’re wondering there’s no support for as, so better keep your hands steady to avoid shaky footage, and as far as quality goes it’s pretty average. We get relatively good footage in daylight, but don’t expect much at night. It’s muddy and peppered with noise. Okay, so for our final thoughts, we think that when it comes to bang for your buck smartphones, most consumers’ first choice would probably be either from realm or Xiaomi.
However, we think the Huawei y7a is a strong contender for this segment for 8 999, pesos you’re, actually getting good specs, including a full HD plus display a decent processor, a 48, megapixel, quad-camera setup and not to mention it’s got amazing battery life. Of course, it also comes with a few shortcomings like not being able to play graphically intensive games smoothly at high settings and lacking some stabilization for videos. At this point, we don’t think that the lack of google mobile services is much of a disadvantage since the app gallery and the petal search widgets offer most of the apps. You need, but I’ll be honest with you. It can still be a challenge to download native google apps.
We really understand where the reluctance is coming from, but it would be a waste not to give the y7a a chance seriously, and there you have it. What about you guys?
