Display and Build

The Huawei Y5 2017 features a a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and pixel density of 294 PPI (Pixels Per Inch). By this screen size, the device is extremely portable to operate with one hand. Its high resolution on a display of this size provides a screen that is sharp and clear enough to be viewed and read from with ease. As is the case of most low end devices, there is no screen protection on this device, hence scratches and cracks on the screen will be inevitable.

The Y5 2017 has a plastic build with curved edges and textured back to give a more firmer grip. It has a dimension of 143.80 x 72.00 x 8.35 (height x width x thickness) and weight of 155g. It is slightly heavier than some high end devices like the Huawei P10 at 142g, but still retains a light weight when handled. The smartphone is available in different colour options of gold, pink, white, blue and gray.


Hardware and Software

The Huawei Y5 2017 is powered by quad-core MT6737T processor with a processing speed of 1.4GHz. This processor's speed is quite high, and can ensure fast and smooth operation of the phone. There is also a 2GB RAM which is more than the average capacity found in a low end device. Some graphic intensive games can still be ran on the Y5 2017 without encountering lags due to this RAM's capacity. 

This smartphone has an internal memory storage of 16GB which can also be expanded upto 128GB via microSD card. Its support for expansion ensures that users get a large storage area for their files and apps. Although most people expected the latest Android Nougat OS and the latest Emotion 5.1 UI on this device, this is not the case. Instead, the Huawei Y5 2017 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 on top.  


Camera

The Huawei Y5 2017 features an 8MP back camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5MP front camera with 84 degree wide-angle.

Also, the resolution of both cameras is moderate and can produce images with good quality. Other features of the Huawei Y5 2017 camera include geo-tagging, auto focus, touch focus, and face detection.


Battery and Connectivity

Huawei Y5 2017's battery capacity is 3000mAh which is quite large for a low end device. Given its screen resolution, processor and Marshmallow's power saving technology, this device will definitely have a long battery life. Huawei claims the battery will last upto 1.5 days on a single charge and can deliver more than 80% of its capacity even after more than 800 charging cycles.
