Design

If you are an esthete and it is a priority for you to have a beautiful phone next to you, then Huawei y7a deserves your attention. It is available in interesting colors, and the layout of the case corresponds to the trends of recent years. The manufacturer has relied on plastic, which, however, is high quality and pleasant to the touch. There are no criticisms of the production. Everything is meticulous to the smallest detail. The dimensions of the model (165.7 x 76.9 x 9.3 mm) and its low weight - a little over 200 grams - contribute to the comfort during work. Looking at the rear panel, you notice the vertical position of the quad camera.

Display

In Huawei y7a we see a beautiful and high quality 6.67-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. Its colors are vibrant and bright. On such a screen you can work for hours with different types of information - texts, videos, photos, games and more. Users are given the opportunity to change settings, adjust screen colors and temperature.

It should also be noted that the aspect ratio of the screen is 20:9, and its ratio to the entire front panel is 84.3%, which is a good indicator to date. The pixel density per inch is 395.

Productivity

Beneath the attractive look of the Huawei y7a is a HiSilicon Kirin 710A chip combined with 4 GB of RAM, a Mali G51 MP4 GPU graphics processor and 128 GB of internal storage. You can enlarge the latter with a microSDXC card. Performance is good and you can expect applications to launch quickly. If you like to play games on your phone, lowering their settings will contribute to a better experience.

The operating system is Android 10 and is combined with the company's EMUI 10.1.

A fast-acting fingerprint scanner and facial recognition technology are tasked with keeping your data away from prying eyes.

Camera

Huawei y7a has a quadruple rear camera, which consists of a 48 MP main module, 8 MP 120-degree ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP module, tasked with measuring depth, and 2 MP module, thanks to which you will take macro photos. The manufacturer has provided a sixfold increase.

For selfies, a quality 8 MP front camera is responsible for this class of phones. To increase satisfaction with the photographic qualities of Huawei y7a, the company has offered cube shooting modes, including portrait, night, panoramic, Slow-mo, HR and more.

The new AI Lens feature complements the good rating for the cameras. The ultra-wide module will do a great job, and in low light, don't be surprised if the photos look a bit blurry. In night mode you will improve their quality.

Regarding the capabilities of Huawei y7a for shooting videos, we will say that with the main camera you can record videos with up to 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second, and with the front - at 30 frames per second. Their quality is worthy of this class of phones.

Autonomous work

This Huawei model is equipped with a non-removable Li-Po battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh and SuperCharge fast charging technology. Tests show that you can expect impressively long battery life. Prepare to recharge in a day and a half - two, during which time you will surf, play games and browse social networks. If you lower the screen resolution, you can expect even better battery performance.

As for recharging it, you will need an hour and a half - two to have a full charge.

Conclusion

Huawei y7a is an excellent modern solution that can be yours for a modest sum. In return, you get a modern look, ergonomic shape and Full HD+ display, whose bright colors you will enjoy for hours. The device supports 2 SIM cards.

An additional advantage of the Huawei y7a is given by the durable battery, the fast-acting owner recognition systems and the three colors in which it is available - green, gold and black. For some users, the downside will be the absence of Google services.
