How much does the Huawei Y7 Pro cost? You’ll be able to pick it up for around Rs.23,000 island-wide. Considering its price, don’t be surprised that it doesn’t come with the best features.
The handset is slippery. It rocks a full aluminum body, so it’s easy to drop. This is especially true as its sides were curved well.
As its sides are so rounded, holding it for long periods of time won’t be uncomfortable, thankfully.
You’re looking at a somewhat big phone. Its display stretches 5.99 inches across. Manufacturers these days love making phones big – the Pro 2018 won’t stand out.
It’s quite thin. This helps it feel rich. The following are its dimensions: 158.3 mm x 76.7 mm x 7.8 mm. It’s got some good weight too. The more weight a mobile has, the better built it feels. It is 155 grams.
You are getting expandable storage. Just know that you’ll have to buy the microSD card separately. There is a headphone jack as well. The two are appreciated as more expensive units these days have been coming without them.
You can’t pick it up in many colours. The options available are only Blue, Gold and Black. The black is my favourite, as it looks the most expensive.
As its display is not small, immersing in whatever you’re watching would be easy. Its viewing experience would’ve been better if Huawei placed a vibrant panel. You’re met with regular IPS LCD instead.
The Y7 Pro doesn’t have the best screen-to-body ratio. That’s why there’s some bezel action going on. Its ratio is just 76.3%.
I don’t think its 720 x 1440 p resolution cuts it. Its display is somewhat large, so you’ll be noticing blurriness if you look closely.
Let’s talk about its insides. It runs Android 8 out of the box. If you’re expecting the Android 11 upgrade, get ready to be disappointed. The Android OS would be available through EMUI, which is Huawei’s proprietary UI. It has a lot of themes. They can sadly be heavy.
The Snapdragon 430 processor housed isn’t worth writing home about. It gets over worked easily. If the phone came with more RAM, its insides would be snappier. You’ll be picking it up with 3 gigs of memory.
Something that’s snappy is its fingerprint sensor, though. It’s in an easy to reach spot too.
ROM-wise, it is decent. You can download all kinds of files, as it has 32 GB of space. What’s great is that you expand its ROM too. Hopefully, you remember that you’ll have to buy the microSD card separately.
Are you expecting a large battery? Get ready to be disappointed. The Pro 2018 houses a 3,000 mAh unit. It’ll fully drain in less than a day. No, its battery is non-removable – the device rocks an aluminum unibody after all.
To charge it, you’ll be inserting a 10 W regular charger into a micro-USB port. If you’ve read my reviews, you’d know that I’m not a fan of micro-USB ports. They are dated, which is why the Y7 Pro takes 2 and a half hours to reach 100%.
More expensive phones come with wireless and reverse charging. As the Pro 2018 is so affordable, you can’t be mad that it doesn’t come with the two.
I’m not a fan of the cameras Huawei produces. The company does alright with more expensive devices. But with more affordable ones, like the Y7 Pro (2018), they place set-ups that are subpar.
There is a dual set-up on its rear. It consists of a 13 MP primary lens along with a 2 MP secondary depth sensor. The colours taken won’t be very colour accurate. There is a bit of graininess that gets especially bad in low-light.
Speaking of it shooting in dim settings, its back camera comes with an LED flash. Is it bright? Yes. The brightest? No.
A flash isn’t available with its front camera. Speaking of its selfie camera, a single 8 MP shooter was placed. You won’t be left Instagram ready.
