Huawei Y5p Review

With a stylish and ergonomic design, the budget Huawei Y5P has a good chance of making you prefer it. It also has a wide range of features. Like other smartphones of the Huawei company, this model does not support Google services. However, that doesn't make it doomed. We'll give you a hint as to why in the following lines.


The Huawei Y5P is available in the market in three colours - midnight black, phantom blue and mint green. Thanks to these color choices, the device is fresh and pleasant to look at. Its body is made of polycarbonate, which contributes to the low weight and sturdiness of the Huawei Y5P. The convenient location of all buttons and the pleasantly large size of the device (146.5 x 70.9 x 8.4 mm) ensure comfortable use.

On the left side of the Huawei Y5P you will find two SIM card slots. There is a separate microSDXC memory card slot. Thus, the user does not need to choose between the second SIM card and the most memory.


The Huawei Y5P features a 5.45-inch display that is surrounded by a relatively large bezel. This is typical for budget class phones. The display takes up 73.8% of the front panel. The aspect ratio of the screen is 18:9, making it comfortable for everyday use and multimedia viewing. The resolution of the display is 1400 x 720 pixels. You have a high level of image detail.

We should also say that the matrix is IPS type. It is characterized by the transmission of images with bright and saturated colors. The viewing angles are wide - up to 178 degrees.


Huawei Y5P performs all elementary everyday tasks. It is equipped with an 8-core Mediatek MT6762R Helio P22 processor consisting of four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz as well as four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz. The graphics are handled by an IMG GE8320 chip (650 MHz), whose performance is quite sufficient to run simple games. 

The satisfactory performance level of the Huawei Y5P is provided by 2 GB of RAM. The internal memory is 32 GB. The factory operating system is Android 10 with EMUI 10.1 interface. This system is characterized by simplicity and comfortable operation. It offers a variety of useful features.


The smartphone is equipped with a single 8-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f/2.0. With this camera, you can take pictures and videos of pretty good quality. Their resolution is 3264 x 2448 pixels. Moreover, you can record videos with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second.

The front-facing camera of the Huawei Y5P is a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture.

App Gallery

As mentioned earlier, the Huawei Y5P is one of the company's smartphones that doesn't support Google services. That's why you'll come across an app store of its own making here. The selection is not as large as in the Play Store, but many of them are the most popular to date. In addition, the app is constantly improving and will offer more options in the future.

For more security - facial recognition system

Huawei Y5P can protect your personal data. The mobile phone features a smart facial recognition function. With its help, the smartphone registers the user's unique facial characteristics. The latter, in turn, can quickly unlock the device - just by looking at the front camera. The smart system eliminates the need to remember complex passwords or graphic keys. If you're the kind of person who constantly forgets them, you'll definitely like this fact.

Autonomous operation

With the help of a 3020 mAh battery, the Huawei Y5P is capable of serving you for a whole day of active work. Continuous video playback will melt the charge in 17 hours. An intelligent power saving system, Huawei's handiwork, guarantees the user a frugal consumption. It also increases the battery life, which is non-removable and Li-Po.


The Huawei Y5p smartphone has everything it takes to become a good tool for performing various daily tasks. Among its advantages are a quality high-resolution screen, ergonomic design, and excellent autonomous operation. The downside is that this device won't be of use to those of you who are in the habit of using Google services.

Huawei Y5P is the perfect phone for children, teenagers with unpretentious requirements for camera capabilities and people of retirement age who do not insist on the latest achievements in the world of smartphones. The low weight of the model makes it convenient to carry in a bag, pocket or hand.
