Android 9.0 (Pie) (AOSP)
One question everyone buying a Huawei smartphone wants to be answered is whether the model they are buying has Android. I think it is important we all know that as a platform, Android is very much present on Huawei smartphones even Huawei y7p.
What this phone does not have is G-APPS which the likes of Play-store have been replaced with Huawei AppGallery. You can use this App Gallery to search, download, install manage and share your favorite user applications and games.
Huawei y7p in itself is powered by Android and version 9.0 (Pie) to that effect. The company’s very own EMUI 91 themes Android giving it that Huawei feels and touch. These other features hand work hand in hand with its OS. Y7p comes with a Hi-silicon Kirin 710F (12 nm) chipset with an Octa-core (4×2.2 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) and Mali-G51 MP4.
And at this point let me note that it is a mid-range smartphone categorized and entry-level option. And now with EMUI random read speed will be 20% faster.
HUAWEI Punch Display
While writing this review I was reminded about the history of bezels, the beginning of notches, and now the transition to punch display. Huawei y7p is the latest mid-tier smartphone with it, a hole punch at the top left corner of the display.
It is like the kind you see on Huawei nova 5t, more or less; or more! The idea here is to deliver a broader view with a high 9015% screen-to-body ratio. And the result is an all-immersive experience. You can always hide this punch should you find it distracting your view — something which very rarely occurs.
And still, on the display we are 100King at a b.39 inches u-‘s LUV capacitive touchscreen wan a /20 x lbtiU pixels resolution. I know 720p isn’t all that especially on an LCD panel but hey, if words mean anything then hear it from us.
Huawei y7p’s display still is a bundle of joy to behold. Its aspect ratio is 19.5:9 ratio and it has a rather low -269 PPI density. Apart from that, we think this 100.2 cm2 is great for the price you will pick y7p for.
Fast, Smooth, and Intelligent
Huawei has basically performed multiple optimizations that have brought along a smooth, less-stutter experience. But it is the smart memory engine that wows with how it’s efficiently its algorithm improves the available memory of the system.
Mind you Huawei y7p has 4GB of RAM which smart memory engines strive all the while to avail a larger chunk of every time. It is because of this feature you will rarely see stutter while using this phone even where you would forgive had one or two occurred. You will also get 64GB of internal storage here.
48MP Al Triple Camera
Let me quote Huawei on this one. “HUAWEI Y7p is your personal photo studio with 3 intelligent rear cameras.” The three camera lenses the company mentions here are a 48MP main camera, an 8MP Ultra Wide Angle camera, and a 2MP depth camera.
I will put it this way, the images these cameras shoot are characterized by fine details and clarity you can count on that. And not only that; the 8 MP within the punch holes also does a respectable job even with its 1080p©30fps videos.
