Y6 and Y7: stylish budget business phones from Huawei
Huawei has just launched the updated Y6 and Y7. They hold two SIM cards, handy if you want to keep private life and work separate. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer is promoting them as high-quality devices that are very affordable. We put them to the test.

Screen and design

In photos you barely see the difference between the two models; in real life the Huawei Y7 turns out to be a fraction larger. The budget phones both have a touch screen, of 5.7 and 6 inches respectively, with an aspect ratio of 18:9. This increasingly popular aspect ratio offers somewhat more practically useful area than a standard 16:9 screen. The longer display lends itself exceptionally well for example to the so-called split screen mode, in which you can use two apps side by side.

On the back we do discover one difference: the fingerprint scanner, which is only on the Huawei Y7.


The two telephones are distinguished by their optics. On the back, both phones weigh in with a 13 MP camera. For taking selfies the Y7 is clearly the better choice, with 8 megapixels versus a 5 MP selfie camera on the Y6. Both smartphones are equipped with a flash that automatically detects the lighting of the face and then intelligently adjusts the brightness.

The selfie camera in the Y series also features facial recognition, a fast and secure way to unlock the device.


Although the same 3000mAh battery lies under the hood in the Huawei Y6 and Y7, the battery life is just a bit different. With the Y7 you can watch up to 13 hours of videos or listen to up to 58 hours of music; with the Y6 that’s 14 hours of video and 57 hours of music.

The devices also have a special game mode. In the energy-saving mode the game performance is automatically scaled down. This saves the battery and so ensures that you can relax with a game a little longer.

Other Specifications

Like many Huawei smartphones, the Y series holds two SIM cards so that you can be reached at two different numbers: for private and business use, for example.

One slot can also be used for a microSD card with which you can expand the 16 GB storage memory by a maximum of 256 GB. The RAM is 2 GB and the operating system used is Android 8.0 Oreo.

Availability and Price

The Huawei Y6 has a price tag of € 123,96 excl. VAT and comes in black and matte blue. The Y7 changes hands for € 165,28 excl. VAT and is available in black.
