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...

Bang for your buck

 

I was always an Iphone user but I did not want to spend that type of money to buy a new phone. One of my friends suggested the Huawei Y6 and I thought I would give it a go. If you are someone who loves to take pictures, the camera on this phone is not...

Soooo Slowwww!

 

see if you did something wrong. I know it's cheap, but I simply cannot use it unless I have all day to write and email and send a txt msg. I wanted this as a temp phone for 6 months but you're better off spending more on a faster phone.

Great value phone

 

The Huawei Y6 is a nice solid phone that you can get under $100. However Huawei Y6 Elite can be had for the same price with more processing power. The Huawei Ui is very slick but not as fast as the HTC, Iphone UI. The Camera is average but decent in...

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....

This is a very good budget phone.

 

The GPS and Navigation system is very good. The screen resolution is good. The 8 MP Camera is fine. The phone performance is good and the battery last for 24 hours with the power saving option. At the end you get what you paid for.The phone is perfect...

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,...
