The Huawei Y5 2017, the successor to Y5 II released last year, is a 4G enabled smartphone having a 5 inch display with 1280 X 720 pixel resolution. Moreover, the fast performance of phone is backed by its 1.4 GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6737 processor.

On the memory front we find a 2 GB RAM along with 16 GB of internal storage which is also expandable up to 128GB by using a micro SD card up to 128 GB. You may feel embarrassed when you see an older version of Android – Marshmallow under the hood.

To capture your fun moments, the phone comes with an 8 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture whereas the selfie lovers will have a 5 MP front shooter having an 84-degree viewing angle for better group selfies.

Also enjoy the phone without worrying the battery consumption. As the phone has a powerful 3000 mAh battery. The budget Honor 8 Lite also has a 3000mAh battery and easily lasts over 1.5 days with the latest software and an upgraded processor. Taking into consideration the moderate specs of Y5 2017, it is possible the Huawei Y5 may last a little longer than the said one and a half day.
