Hey what’s up guys, this is my Unboxing and quick review of the Huawei Y7P, the Y7p is Huawei’s 2020 budget/mid range device that they make, this
phone actually launched on the 7th of February early this year and it’s been what_____ it’s been 3 months since we’ve had this now but it’s only just going for pre-orders
in Nigeria this May till June I’ll have exact dates in the description of this video & also pricing and additional information.
That being said, this is actually one of the finer devices that Huawei makes and we’re going to be exploring it since I’ve had it for a few days…
I’ll also have my timestamps in the description of this so you can skip ahead to different sections of this article that you want to get quickly informed about.
Without further ado, Before we move on guys,
This is the box of the Huawei Y7P and inside it, we’ve got the device itself in a semi loose wrap, this is the Huawei Y7P itself and we’ll
There’s also a second smaller box which has the sim ejector tool.
Inside this box is where we get the quick start guide, and the flexible case which does the job and I’ll recommend wearing if you want to preserve that gradient finish.
Underneath that is the charging cable which is not a USB C one, unfortunately, we also have the power adapter and a headphone that’s not of the in ear kind.
Taking the wrap off the phone, you can see the front’s 6.39 inch display and on the back, I do like that really cool gradient effect it has and
it’s sort of stroked inwards making it have a two tone look for the same gradient.
This device even has the sides in gradients not something you see often as most others are like sandwiched designs, this is all round and i thought it was cool.
I like that it sticks to the full gradient commitment.
All round gradient design even on the sides. Dope!
The downside though is that it’s a fingerprint magnet.
You can also see the finger print reader at the center of the phone, triple camera branding beneath all the cameras and when you look downwards it’s just Huawei’s
On the top of the device there’s a microphone, to the right is the power button and volume keys, the left has the sim slot.
This is a dedicated dual sim slot and it’s expandable by 512GB so you can have extra storage in addition to the 64GB it comes with.
In some countries you’ll get a hybrid sim slot but for Nigeria it’s pure dual sim The bottom of the phone houses the headphone jack, nice to see, another
The front of the phone has the 8MP front facing camera in a punch hole style display.
The earpiece is of course above it and when you take a look at the whole screen you’ll notice a slight chin.
Another nice touch is that the device also has a screen protector on which I thought was a good move.
The phone is actually light weight in my hands and slim to the tune of 8.1mm even as it houses a 4,000 mah battery which we’ll talk about soon.
It’s not glass on the back but a polycarbonate material, however, it does look and feel well designed.
The color is Aurora Blue and there’s another option, which is midnight black.
In terms of the display quality of this device, huawei uses a 720p display on here, 1520 by 720p to be exact and when I watched video on it
natively it can take on a 1080p video downscaled of course which would look sharper but if you’re going to be streaming on this guy, you’ll have to know that
it’s a 720p display and it’s going to be capped at 720p.
Specification wise it’s of course an LCD panel, 82.4% screen to body ratio and a modest ppi of 269.
Unfortunately because Google services are not supported on newer huawei devices, you get an error message when you launch the YouTube but if you want to watch a YouTube
video, you can do just that in the Web Browser or a browser like OperaMini.
In a separate video which is all about the Huawei App Gallery, I’ll explain a couple of things there and will link that in the description.
You do get the option to toggle on Eye Comfort which is a way of reducing Blue Light or essentially a blue light filter so it doesn’t strain your
eyes, you can also increase text size and even display size as you wish and you can even change the fonts.
In a cruel twist of fate you can hide the notch if you feel like the front facing camera bothers you but why you would do that is beyond me really.
go to the system settings, you can see your navigation options, you can select between Gestures, Three Key Navigation and the third option which isn’t really an option per se
but a style, of additional navigation, the dock, which places an opaque circle on your screen and you can use it to do home, recent tasks and back button commands,
Also guys, if you’re finding this video useful & have gotten to this point, I’d really appreciate it if you could leave a like so more people can get
explaining the Huawei App Gallery and how to better utilize your Huawei Smartphone.
When you look at the sound quality of the Huawei Y7P, of course it’s not a stereo speaker device, it’s more of a single loud speaker at the bottom
For my not so comprehensive test here’s how it did: When it came to the microphone quality itself in terms of me speaking on the phone, the device did
do very well and it was more concentrated on the bass of my voice and of course, this phone has a dual microphone system on here so audio recording for
would be much better but it doesn’t have a stereo speaker so that’s also another angle to consider here, it did sound a little thin in comparison to the
real song however it was decently loud but not super super crisp or even bass heavy it was more on the high notes side so you may not have problems
with listening to voices out loud but for music it’s just a bit faint but loud.
The Huawei Y7P currently runs on Android 9 based on Emotion UI or EMUI 9.1.1 it did feel snappy during my use and it was something I liked about
When you talk about processing power on the Huawei Y7P, you’re talking about the Kirin 710F, which was used on one of huawei’s cool midrange devices last year, the
Huawei y9 Prime 2019 which has a pop up camera and I reviewed, you can watch that with the link below or the card up above, it did handle games
well which I’ll come to and day to day tasks were not a problem for it.
In terms of storage, I was a little bummed it had 64GB of Storage and 4GB of RAM but for a price 140 Euros which, when I did the
conversion it was about 60,000 Naira and I think it would be more when its price is announced in Nigeria, I can’t complain.
I’ll update the accurate pricing information in the description below.
On the brighter side though, as I mentioned, you can of course, increase your storage externally with a 512GB memory card.
This phone does come with a big 4,000 mAh battery and Huawei claims 22 hours of screen on time.
It is actually capable of 10W charging and in the past few days I’ve had it, it did get me through till about 5pm from about 11am if I
In terms of Gaming on the Y7P, I only noticed lags once in the past few days and that was on PUBG but all the rest of the way,
When I played games, call of duty, pubg and asphalt for a total of 30 minutes, it took the battery down by 10% all the way from 29% to
When you talk about Biometrics and Security, of course apart from PIN, Patterns and passwords, we have Face Unlock and Fingerprint reader on the back.
The Fingerprint reader was decently fast, it’s a physical one and not and on-screen one so that does help.
Face Unlock did also do fine in enough light, however all the times I’ve tried unlocking it in the dark doesn’t work, it would just give a not enough light signal.
However, with some little light, you’ll be able to unlock this device with Face Unlock.
As far as the cameras on the Huawei Y7P, from top to bottom you’ve got a a 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) sensor, the 12MP slash 48 MP, f/1.8 (wide)
angle camera, and the 3rd camera is the 8 MP f/2.4, (ultrawide), as well as the flash below.
The selfie camera on the Huawei Y7P is an 8MP f/2.0 sensor, no front facing flash, just a screen flash, and from my tests, it was just okay and
usable for social media, It looked noticeably sharp but a bit over exposed, same thing goes for the portrait mode.
I must mention that the portrait mode, straight out the box has been set to a high level of beauty mode which you can reduce by yourself for better
clarity and still, if you look closely you’ll definitely notice that not all the edges are cut well and the hair also doesn’t look blurred really well.
This shot was a 12MP default camera shot because straight out of the box, it’s set to 12MP and here’s how it looked and this image was a total 1.7MB.
This camera also has an aperture mode where you can set aperture low up to f1.7, it’s totally not perfect and from the same position not only did it
blur the background more it also increased in size to 3.9MB.
These normal shots ease into bokeh a little bit well and have a decent background blur, however, when you switch to 48MP mode which you can from the settings
menu, I wish it was just a button up top, I noticed more saturation and better quality when zoomed in and of course an increase in image size up to
light but a downside is that you can’t zoom in this mode.
You’ll have to go back to the normal mode.
When I tried all the zoom levels, the 8MP ultra wide mode did give a bit of a washed out image and this was with enough light but it
had clear greens even if it wasn’t as sharp.
At 2x, the image still retained a lot of sharpness while at the maximum 6x, it was noticeable soft but still usable.
When I took it outdoors, it did perform well, I liked the blue hues it had and normal 12MP shots did perform well and even portrait mode compared to
the indoor space and portrait mode was way better especially since the separation from the background was much smoother and made for a sharper image.
this guy can shoot 1080p at 30fps and when I tested it out while walking, it was actually shaky as you can see and it
did hunt for exposure and clarity a lot but didn’t affect sharpness so a tripod and controlled environments would see the Y7P thrive more.
Slow mo features on this camera is 480 fps and when I tested it out, like the Huawei Nova series I used to have, it computes frames in an
uneven way but it still looks pleasant and of course, slow.
It ended up being usable but you can’t edit the slow motion frames in post.
Huawei’s night mode was also cool, performed as usual and brightens the dark scenes and little help with AI camera features can be seen to help with things on here.
I’m test it out more but what are your thoughts about the camera quality of the Huawei Y7P and what would you like to know about it?
