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....

OK while it lasted

 

My daughter got one for Christmas and it was the best phone she could do heaps with it, but it won't even charge up now or turn on. It's only 6 months old. The battery would heat up when charging or if you where on the phone for more than 15 minute's....

Satisfactory for basic use

 

For its price (<$100), Huawei Y5 does the job for basic use e.g. messaging, calls, simple apps; and is good value Good, compact size. 4GX allows fast speeds, cameras on the front and back At times, touch screen is not as responsive and apps are...

Great for simple use.

 

I was an Apple only user and after a somewhat frustrating run with their expensive phones I got the courage to go buy this Huawei for $84. Sure it has very small built in memory but other than that, It's totally worth the little money it costs. Battery...

Adequate

 

Got the Huawei Y560 for a good price at Coles when it was on offer. It is more than adequate for a beginner user of smartphone as I only use the unit's basic functions. It is a bit heavier than I expected though, but I think the iPhone is heavy too.

Does the job

 

the 2 finger zoom technique doesn't work on most home pages, which is annoying because the small print is usually microscopic. But value for money..unbeatable. For are $100 it's easier to buy another one if you break or lose it.

Brilliant!

 

Best first or beginner'so smart phone. And this is a SMART phone. Android is easy to learn and operate. Especially compared with Windows. So, if you couldn't use a smart phone before, you can now! Get a good deal though as the newer models are also...

Great phone

 

For its price it is a fantastic phone. Underrated for its capabilities and most people are put off by the cheap price. I have dropped this phone face first onto concrete and on its edge. No cracked screen and still works. Mine is locked to Optus on the...
