On the inside of the Huawei Y7 Pro 2018, we get an octa-core processor on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. The Y7 Pro comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. It also supports external memory cards up to 256 GB. The phone is powered by a 3000 mAh battery at the back. Huawei Y7 Pro 2018 is running on Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 overlay. The phone with Snapdragon 430 provides smooth multitasking and ample storage for apps, media, and files. It is a decent processor but note that it is entry-level only so there will be restrictions.
In the network case, the phone supports dual Nano SIMs and LTE Cat 4 as well. For security, the phone features a new face unlock with a new algorithm according to the company. In the sensor department, users get Proximity, Compass, and Accelerometer. Huawei has kept the headphone jack with the phone so we are happy with that.
Display and Cameras
Huawei Y7 Pro 2018 features a 5.99” IPS LCD screen. It has a tall 18:9 aspect ratio with 720×1440 or HD+ resolution. This new aspect ratio is becoming very common since last year and we will see this trend go on from now. Companies like CG have also launched cheap CG Omega 3 just to attract customers with a tall aspect ratio of screens.
Regarding the camera side, there are 13 MP cameras with f/2.2 aperture and a 2 MP depth-sensing camera at the back. At the front, there is an 8 MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. Both cameras can record videos at 1920×1080 at 30 fps. Users get HDR, Face detection, and many other features within the camera app.
The camera is the most sought-after feature that most people look for these days. So a phone has to have the best camera in the price range to attract customers. They are deal-makers as they are replacing digital cameras in our pockets. In the case of Huawei Y7 Pro 2018, this does have a good set of standard cameras. The best thing is that Huawei has implemented dual cameras and mainly depth sensor cameras that is in high demand now.
Impressions and Analysis
The Huawei Y7 Pro 2018 positions itself as a compelling option in the upper-budget smartphone segment. It comes with an entry-level Snapdragon processor, 3 RAM, 32 GB storage, 3000 mAh battery, dual cameras, and an 18:9 HD+ screen. On top of that, there is a stylish design. The dual-camera system is in huge demand and the phone does offer good competitive features. One thing that Huawei has missed is a fingerprint scanner. That is necessary and should be included in the next update.
Overall the design looks pretty nice with the glossy side rail. We like the black color model. The back cameras are horizontally aligned at the top corner which looks nice. Performance expectations are also decent and according to the price. Cameras are also very standard as per market and time. Huawei is playing smoothly this quarter with their budget and mid-range phones and this will continue. This is seen in Y7 Pro (2018) as well. So let’s see what more they will offer this year to Nepali consumers. For Huawei Y7 Pro 2018, we like the phone and put this as a good option at this budget of ($190).
