Huawei Y6 II Compact Smartphone Review

 

Cheap Thrills. "Cheaper is always possible", Huawei thought, and it thus reduced the price of the lower mid-range with its Y6 II Compact. Is that enough for a convincing presentation?

decent build ; low price ; dual-SIM ; good touchscreen ; very bright screen ; good viewing angle stability ; relatively high performance ; low power consumption ; good battery life ; fast internal storage

screen's too low contrast... ; ...and inaccurate color reproduction ; older Android version ; camera's blurred photos ; poor speakers ; slow access on micro-SD ; long recharging times

Huawei's Y6 II Compact has three very clear core competencies: performance, battery life, and price. The review sample is very well positioned in these three sectors, but other areas like the weak camera and low-contrast screen clearly look inferior....

Huawei Y6 II Compact review

 

The Huawei Y6 II Compact is an entry-level Android phone with smart looks, a 5-inch HD screen, a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, but a relatively small battery. Its best feature is probably its camera.

The word Compact seems to be a red-herring in the name of this phone, because its 5-inch screen is standard size for an Android device costing between £100 and £200. This phone is largely a reboot of the popular Huawei P8 Lite from 2015, but with some...

HUAWEI Y6 II Compact - 16 GB, Black

 

Camera is amazing for the price that pay for this phone, battery life is very good, design is simplistic but awesome. The sound quality is also very good. Fast and snapy device, you are not going to find a better phone for similar price.

awesome, it has everything that you need. But for few pounds extra I'd like to see 1080p screen and more ram. That is it.

HUAWEI Y6 II Compact - 16 GB, Black

 

I have found this really easy to use. It has a great screen size which helps when using it for internet and reading ( I have kindle app on mine). The camera is amazing for an android phone.

The battery doesn't last long. I must admit I do use my phone all day for internet etc,so that's probably why. It does have an energy saving feature though.

Excellent value for money, good features and easy to use and setup.

Camera quality is not on par with Samsung or iPhone, but for the price it is adequate.
