Huawei has a diverse range of phones that we can choose from that makes them quite popular among consumers. HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 is Huawei’s latest budget phone addition to the market. It features a 6.26’’ Dewdrop display, 16MP selfie camera, 4,000mAh battery and strong biometric identification methods. These same four features make it a great option to think of in terms of budget and design.
6.26“ Dewdrop Display
The HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 gets a huge upgrade in terms of looks. It features the premium HUAWEI Dewdrop display where the front camera is housed into a tiny pearl notch, to ensure the symmetry of the frontal view and to provide a 6.26 inch screen that provides a high quality entertainment experience whether the user is using the device for video or gaming purposes.
The back of the device is ceramic and is coated with polycarbonate, which is resilient against day-to-day wear and tear. And since this device targets youth, Huawei has it in three energetic colors: Aurora Blue, Midnight Black and Coral Red.
And since young people tend to spend more time in front of their mobile phone screen playing games or watching videos, Huawei has added a protection mode, if enabled, adjusts the colors of the display and reduces the intensity of the blue light – which research studies claim to have a negative effect on our eyes.
16MP Selfie Camera
Huawei has integrated a 16MP front camera into a small notch that is situated on the vertical axis of the device. Huawei says people face some difficulties when they want to take a selfie, that the shutter button may not be reachable and it is even sometimes a hassle to tap the screen even if we are using a selfie stick. So Huawei has equipped this phone with two easy ways to take selfies: Gesture Control and Smile Detection. How they work is like this:
If the Gesture Control is enabled, users can snap a selfie by just opening or closing their palm in front of the camera. Otherwise, users can say “cheese” and the camera will snap a selfie.
On the back, there are two cameras: 13MP+2MP. The primary 13MP camera has a wide aperture of f/1.8 with 16 virtual f-stops to provide granular controls over depth of field effects. In Aperture Mode, users can get a soft bokeh around objects by turning up the aperture, and a round crisp image if they lower it. This is a simulated effect and it can be applied before or after the fact.
The Master AI on HUAWEI Y7 PRIME 2019 has got an upgrade. Huawei says it can recognize over 22 different categories and more than 500 scenes. And if it is enabled, the AI can recognize the subject we are pointing the camera to and adjusts the parameters to get the best results.
Huawei has added a large 4,000mAh battery to this mid-market phone segment. The aim is to provide users with up to two days’ worth of usage so they are worry-free about running out of power. Huawei even says this device retains at least 80 percent of its full capacity even after 700 recharges, which technically means the phone is still reliable even after two years of normal use.
The phone comes also with the pre-installed app Phone Manager, which identifies which apps are consuming the most of the battery, so users know and close down these apps and optimize the performance of their device.
Huawei equipped this device with Face Unlock 2.0. It works like this: Users set up their profile following on-screen instructions; the device can authenticate the identity of a user and unlock the device quickly. For extra security, facial credentials are saved locally and never leave the device.
Furthermore, there is also the fingerprint sensor technology, which, Huawei says, allows users to unlock the device in less than 0.37 seconds. The fingerprint sensor also supports multiple functions, such as to take photo/video, stop alarm, answer call, browse photos or show the notification panel.
HUAWEI Y7 Prime 2019 is a great phone to have. It comes with a big screen display, 16MP selfie camera with innovative ways of triggering the shutter, a decent battery and effective biometric identification tools. It looks great and it is only priced at USD189.
