Huawei Y6 review

 

The £100 Huawei Y6 is a budget Android phone that looks like it costs twice as much. Slim, super-lightweight and stylish, it features a large 5-inch HD screen that's quite possibly the best you can buy for the money. Battery life is good too, but the...

Finding the perfect phone for a hundred pounds is a tough call, and something always has to be compromised. The Huawei Y6 gets the design and screen 100% right, with amazing looks for a budget phone, and a beautiful HD screen. The compromise is in its...

Good value for money!

 

I purchased this phone on a prepaid service for $129. The provider included $40 worth of credit which I think is incredible value. The Y6 has all of the functions of a more expensive phone. However the configuration is slightly confusing, and takes...

Good for new users

 

I set up what I thought he would need in apps and contacts and ringtones and then he decided what he wanted and played with it for how he wanted it. He seems to have taken to it like a duck to water. The phone is easy to use, easy to find things on it....

Good phone

 

This review is for the elite model. Very good for the price. Overheats occasionally when charging for some reason. I would happily buy this phone again. I am with Vodafone so not sure if that is why I get 4G drop outs regularly when indoors. Good,...

Good basic phone. Very little memory

 

library app, google books and a couple of other apps regularly, the phone can't cope with this. If you want a reliable smart phone for facebook, emails etc and calls/texting at a reasonable price then by all means this is a good little phone but not...

Good purchase without breaking the bank

 

Purchased this phone after using a mini Samsung for the past 4 years which needed charging every day. Although the Huawei Y6 is not top of the range and only cost me $129.00 I am very happy with my purchase and can at least now find it in my handbag!
