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...

My Samsung stopped working so I needed a phone quickly and bought this phone for temporary use until I got a decent phone. I paid $109 so wasn't expecting much but this phone is excellent, has everything I need, it's even better than my Samsung which I...

It's good

 

Love my phone does everything I want it to but one problem is when I plug it into my stereo and I listen to song on YouTube it keeps cutting out on me it I turn it up too loud but otherwise apart from that it's a great phone to use.

Affordable great little mobile

 

I purchased this phone last week from Big W and in my honest opinion it is a great budget mobile and it serves my purposes as I am not a heavy user of the mobile phone and it does exactly what it says it will do. I am on a budget and cannot work due to...

Value for money

 

The Huawei Y6 is great value for money, the screen size is ideal for viewing web pages but not too big for general phone usage (especially for those of us who have short fingers and small hands). There are a far more extensive range of free Apps and...

Not for heavy user

 

This phone is very cheap and one can feel it when used. The ram is big negative for this phone and so is the in built phone memory. Camera is not to fancy but does ok job so does the selfie camera. Screen resolution is ok. For the price of the cant...

This is a budget phone

 

The 5 inch Y6 is good, basic, and it is sufficient and portable for small hand as well. Its quad cpu and 1Gb of ram will be sufficient for most, but once you add more apps like email, it became very sluggish and required reboot from time to time. Buy...
