Tech Lass's Verdict:

According to Huawei, the GR5 has been designed for quality, to impress and always be the iconic fashion statement. Looking at its sleek design, specs and features, I can confirm this for a fact. The overall display, color reproduction, as well as its wide viewing angles are good, but its EMUI 3.1 might be a cause of concern since its far from pretty.

Although I do like a device with a removable battery which makes it possible to pull out the battery if in any case the phone hangs or lags, for this device, I wouldn't make a removable battery a major factor in choosing the phone. The Huawei GR5 2017 gsmarena specs makes up for this, its high price and could also make it one of the best selling smartphones 2016 in its price range.
