On forums, you can often find users who believe that “good smartphones should be expensive”. But in 2020, this assumption is fundamentally wrong: to get a high-quality smartphone, you do not have to pay a lot of money. HUAWEI is ready to help economical people with this – starting from may 26, Russia will open a pre-order for an affordable HUAWEI y8p smartphones. It will go on sale at a price of about 17 thousand rubles, and its two “younger” brothers 6 and Y5p can be purchased from June 5 for just 10999 rubles and 6999 rubles, respectively. Let’s take a closer look at the older model of the new series.
Positioning and design
HUAWEI positions the y-series smartphones as powerful but compact devices for young people, and this is true: the 8p is very thin (only 7.7 mm) and very light (163 g) smartphone. It fits comfortably in your hand, and the edges of the screen and back panel have a symmetrical bend, making it easy to control the device with one hand.
HUAWEI Y8p is a beautiful device. You can choose from two colors – light blue and midnight black. They are very similar to the shades of the flagship HUAWEI P30 Pro. Another color – emerald green-will only be available for purchase on the official online store’s website.
The screen diagonal of the HUAWEI Y8p smartphones is 6.3 inches, and the resolution is 2400 x 1080 pixels. For the first time, the HUAWEI smartphone is equipped with an OLED screen with a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front camera. It lusciously transmits colors even in sunlight due to auto-correction of brightness.
A new – generation fingerprint scanner is built into the display, and it works quickly-unlocking is instant. Another advantage is the support for the Always on Display function: turn it on, and the date, time, and notifications will be displayed constantly, even on the “sleeping” screen. After dark, you can activate the “Dark mode” for comfortable operation with the device.
The processor is Kirin 710F. This is a fairly powerful chip that easily pulls all modern games at high graphics settings. The amount of RAM is 4 GB, and the amount of built-in storage is 128 GB. It will be enough for at least a thousand high-quality images or 500 songs.
The company’s EROFS file system is responsible for saving memory consumption, which also speeds up data reading, so that the smartphone works clearly and smoothly.
Attentive readers will probably ask the question, what if this smartphone has a Google store? I answer: he is not needed here. See for yourself – HUAWEI AppGallery has all the apps that Russian users need.
Do You Want Sberbank? Please! The service “Yandex” – Yes, here they are. Or maybe you are a fan of the game World of Tanks? And it is in the HUAWEI store. In General, you can download almost everything here. Including the Wallet app for contactless payment – all three smartphones in the new series support NFC.
“Wait-wait, the author, and you’re about Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp have not mentioned” – again mind reader. And I will answer that in HUAWEI here you can use the AppGo service (available in HUAWEI AppGallery). It helps you find apps that are not available in the store. When you click the “download” button, AppGo takes you to the official website of the developer of a particular program, after which you can download the app to your smartphone. Very convenient!
By the way, since this spring, HUAWEI has opened round-the-clock support for users, where you can learn about installing mobile services, among other things. The hotline is organized by phone, in online chat, by email-contacts are available on the website of the official online store.
While flagships compete in the number of main camera lenses, HUAWEI Y8p takes the best of what is created, tested and approved by users. The smartphone has a triple main camera of 48 MP with artificial intelligence. It also has a built-in 120-degree 8-megapixel ultrashirek with an f/2.4 aperture and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. This combination recognizes more than 500 shooting scenarios and automatically adjusts brightness, saturation, and contrast.
The selfie camera in 8 is also at the level – with a resolution of 16 megapixels, self-portraits are detailed, which means that they are as realistic as possible. However, if you wish, you can configure the beautification to embellish a little reality. Night, Portrait, and HDR modes expand the scope for selfie experiments. You can take photos even in low light, and the images will still come out colorful, or take portraits with artistic background blur.
Look at the examples of images from the cameras of this smartphone.
The battery capacity of 8 – 4000 mA * h (the y6p model has even more – 5000 mA*h). This charge is enough for the entire day of active smartphone use. The latest proprietary emui 10.1 interface has an additional power-saving mode that can be activated manually if desired.
The HUAWEI 8P, 6p, and Y5p smartphone series is balanced. For adequate money, you get powerful devices that will delight you for a long time with a stylish design, a nimble processor, high-quality images and long battery life.
