Large screen and aluminum design

One of the highlights of the Huawei Y7 is undoubtedly the design. The equipment has a sleek and sophisticated look , with an all-aluminum architecture. Despite that, we are facing a fairly light team, with measurements of 153.6 x 76.4 x 8.35 millimeters and a weight of 165 grams.

But as we said, the screen plays a fundamental role in the Huawei Y7. And it is a panel of 5.5 inches, with a glass 2.5D and resolution up to 1280 x 720 pixels . This gives us a resulting density of 267 dots per inch. The model will be sold in three different colors: silver, gray and gold.

Powerful processor, fair memory

Usually, Huawei has nurtured its devices with Kirin processors. This time we cannot say the same. The processor that we find inside this Huawei Y7 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 . We are facing an eight-core chip, which can operate at a frequency of 1.4 GHz for the first four cores and 1.1 GHz for the remaining four.

This processor combines its performance with 2 GB of RAM memory and an Adreno 505 graphics card (GPU) . The storage capacity is a bit limited, because it stays at 16 GB. However, if you are one of those who tend to store a lot of content and applications, it will be necessary to expand the memory with external microSD cards.

Good camera for selfies

Another highlight of this Huawei Y7 is the selfie camera. It includes an 8 megapixel sensor, which will allow us to capture good images. The sensor is accompanied by different modes to get the best shots, but it should be noted that it does not include a flash. This can lead to poor results when lighting conditions are not quite good.

The main camera enjoys a 12 megapixel sensor . Quality is guaranteed, with a pixel size of 1.25 µm. Includes LED flash, with phase detection focus to better capture objects. The signature guarantees the gesture in just 0.3 seconds.

Operating system, applications and functions

How could it be otherwise, the Huawei Y7 works through the most recent version of Google. We refer to Android 7 Nougat . However, the edition comes spiced up with the EMUI 5.1 interface. It is a layer of personalization that Huawei adds to its equipment, in order to offer users a more personalized experience.

Users of this device will have the option of using up to two applications at the same time, thanks to the multi-channel mode, and an extra energy saving system, dubbed Doze. As a special feature, users can count on Eye Comfort Mode . This will help them to enjoy a more pleasant experience for the eyes.

Super powerful battery

We are facing a basic range device, but the truth is that Huawei has decided to include a very powerful battery in the device. We are talking about a 4,000 milliamp lithium ion piece . This should provide us with autonomy of more than one day at a good pace.

According to Huawei's own calculations, the phone can provide us with an autonomy of 20 hours of video playback or 15 hours of browsing , without pauses. In addition, according to Huawei it is a high quality battery, because it can continue to retain more than 80% of the battery after having exceeded 500 charge cycles.


Price and availability

The Huawei Y7 has just been put on sale in our country. Thus, we can buy it at any store or authorized dealer from this month of June. The price of the equipment will be 220 euros in free format . However, it is possible that the main operators in the country include it in their catalogs. And we can get it for an even more affordable amount.
