*Came to us early sample Huawei Y6 2019 without the fingerprint scanner, but in the release version, it is present on the rear panel.
The first thing that catches the eye when you take the smartphone – leather cover. Well, almost leather. Actually it’s a stylized plastic. However, it is not to say that it is a bad decision. If in 2013 the rear plastic cover under the skin on the flagship Galaxy Note 3 was perhaps a controversial decision, Huawei Y6 2019 somehow stands out among budget devices in the market.
Case Huawei Y6 2019 fully made of plastic, due to this it is quite easy and comfortable in the hand. The screen would be frameless with a keyhole, but it’s just a fad, because the framework is there and they are pretty thick. The power key and volume rocker located on the right side, you will reach them conveniently. However, in my machine rocker was a little loose. At the top there is 3.5 mm audio Jack, which is definitely a plus for the smartphone on the left – the tray for the SIM card and microSD card, and the bottom is the loudspeaker grille and the microUSB port.
The smartphone is equipped with 6.09″ IPS display with HD+ resolution. The picture quality is normal, brightness is enough, the usual budget panel. Pixels do not strike the eye, except that there is a staircase on the labels, if you look closely. Angles the brightness will drop slightly, but overall is quite OK. in Fact, the smartphones of the top brands, even in the budget, very rare and frankly bad screens, so here at Huawei’s all right.
But the performance is sad. In Y6 2019 installed the MediaTek chipset MT6761 (Helio A22) and it slightly spoils the experience of using smartphones. Sometimes there are micropolyphony even during the browse the desktop. Applications run slowly, quickly unloaded from memory (here, by the way, only 2 GB of RAM). You can of course say that we zazhralis, because I always use different flagships, but because the competition in the face of Xiaomi and Meizu, which is just a lot for the money, offer better bunch of iron-software. Internal memory 32 GB, you can deliver memory card.
The model is Huawei Y6 2019 also tells the presence of a single main camera, though, it seems that now any new smartphone comes with dual and triple chamber, albeit often additional modules are useless and the quality was OK.
The basic module – 13 MP, he tries as best he can, because the quality of the call bearable. In good lighting conditions you can get good pictures, but as soon as it becomes a little less light immediately starts blurring and noise. Front camera – 8 MP, the quality is quite good, there is a tracking focus.
Y6 2019 got a battery 3020 mAh. Not a record, but coupled with not a very powerful chipset and HD screen day smartphone lives quietly. By the way, in the PCMark test, the device lasted almost 8 hours — a decent result. But benchmarks on the performance Y6 2019 was rather hard, therefore, there results not Shine.
The smartphone is running Android 9 Pie. On top of it installed a proprietary shell EMUI 9, which, unfortunately, hasn’t got better. As always, available to the user various customization options, you can install themes to change the appearance of the system, but smartphone this faster will not work.
And a few words about the built-in dynamics – it’s in there, and thank you. Moderately loud, not miss a call, the quality is uh… to listen to music while you take a shower will be fine. By the way, despite the fact that the bottom two grilles for the speaker, the second purely for beauty.
Well, now come to the main question – whether to take a Huawei Y6 2019, which we will sell for 4000 RS (RS 4200 with cover under the skin)? On the one hand, there is good design (there are also variants with blue or the normal black plastic cover), normal screen, more-less camera, on the other – a weak chipset, causing podragivanija in the system, respectively, using experience worse. But the catch is the price range of 4000-5000 UAH dominated by Xiaomi and Meizu. And here Y6 2019 will be difficult to fight, because competitors offer much more interesting features. They are more powerful chipsets and Full HD displays, and other buns. Therefore, the choice as always is yours, but I certainly would have looked into alternative options.
