Huawei Nepal unveiled another budget range smartphone for the market. This is pretty special because it comes with Android Go. It is smaller brother of Lite version of Huawei Y5. The Huawei Y5 Lite price in Nepal is Rs 13,900. It is quite interesting phone because Android Go is a watered version of full Android that can run on low power hardware as well. We are seeing slow expansion of this system in market now days.
Huawei Y5 Lite is a very simple budget range smartphone meant for day to day task. There isn’t much to this phone but its software makes it special. This new mobile phone has the new OS but still there is some UI overlay. Its now stock but the main engine is the master of show. Y5 Lite is a phone with bare minimum specs so lets just see what we get inside of this smartphone.
- 5.45″ LCD screen at 854×480 resolution
- MediaTek MT6737M Chipset
- 1 GB RAM
- 8 GB On board storage
- 2,280 mAh Battery
- 8 MP Main Rear Camera
- 2 MP Secondary Front Camera
- Android 8.1 Oreo Go
These are the specification of the new Huawei Y5 Lite which looks like a bare minimum entry level smartphone. Yes it is starting range mobile but with the Android Go the experience is smooth even with low power hardware. Android Go is watered down version of mainstream Android. It is light, has minimal features and uses less resources. This is why the phone is fast even with lower hardware resources. The Google Play store also has Go apps to fit for the Operating system.

There are very few smartphones with Android Go OS. We encourage the manufacturers to use this system so that they can provide us more performance in the budget and entry range smartphones. It is very clear that the specs are very basic and these are just meant for calling, normal communication, day to day light work and few other tasks.

Google offers wide collection of Go Apps in the Play store. On top of that there are Lite version of applications such as Facebook Lite. These kind of apps can be used to save space and enjoy the limited functionality. So overall speaking, Huawei Y5 Lite 2018 is a good step in right direction with new OS. It can be a new taste and competition in entry level market but needs little bit of price reduction.
