Huawei Y5 review

 

The Huawei Y5 meets all the requirements of a budget Android smartphone - a good-sized screen, a compact body, front & back cameras, a quad-core processor, and 8GB of expandable memory. Battery life is good for a cheap phone - everything else is as...

If you're hunting for a bargain, the Y5 could be it. You probably won't find it in the shops, but it's available online for under £100, and for that money it does the job. It's a nice phone to handle, with enough memory and battery life to avoid tears....

Not worth buying.

 

one cameras. There seems to be a lack of useful options in several other apps. Battery life is very bad - less than a day. The screen is a comfortable size. It does 4G. In general, poor compared to my Samsung phone, even though the latter cost $30 less...

This model is a lemon!

 

I have owned several Huawei phones and have always been very happy with them. They performed very well and were very well priced. Then I made my big mistake of buying a Y560 for my wife and myself. My wife has had nothing but problems with her phone...

Surprising features make Y560 a great phone

 

Great phone, great size thats pocket friendly, lightweight without $$$ price. Huawei phones just get better with each new model. Y560 features a task optimiser, intelligent camera, clever multifocal settings, downloadable themes, 4.5" screen, 8gb ram,...
