Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) is a budget smartphone with an original design and a frameless screen. The gadget has a decent hardware, and at the same time has a low price. The official announement of the device took place in February 2019.
Appearance and ergonomics
The Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) case is made of plastic, which looks more like glass, it has got very rounded corners for best convenience. The phone itself seems relatively thin and light, it is very comfortable to hold it in your hands. The front panel has a moderately large display with rather narrow frames. A perceptible indentation with the company logo is visible only from below. The front-facing camera is installed in a miniature, drop-shaped notch, above which there is a lattice of conversational dynamics together with an event indicator. The screen is covered with a sufficiently thick protective 2.5 D glass. At the bottom is the multimedia speaker and the microUSB connector.
Top face has got a headphone jack. There is not only the main, but also an additional microphone. The back part is made in the style of minimalism. Of the elements there is only a small vertical block with the main camera, right under it there is an LED flash. This block is located in the upper left corner, and it is convex. There is also a version of the smartphone with a “stitched” leather case, which looks very attractive and unusual. Available colors are: black, blue and beige. Dimensions: height – 156.3 mm, width – 73.5 mm, thickness – 8 mm, weight – 150 g.
Smartphone Y6 Pro (2019) has received a 6.09-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. The display resolution is 1560 by 720 pixels. Such an elongated IPS-matrix is great for viewing all sorts of entertainment content. Not the most outstanding clarity is compensated by rich color reproduction. The screen behaves normally in the sun.
At the same time, under direct sunlight the picture seriously fades, which is expected for devices of this price segment. The display protects the curved 2.5D glass, which is characterized by increased reliability. It is possible to change the temperature of the flowers through the settings. The brightness level is above average. If you set the brightness to the minimum value, then you can comfortably read even in complete darkness.
Hardware and performance
The Y6 Pro (2019) is equipped with a quad-core processor Helio A22, made on 12-nm process technology. All of its Cortex-A53 cores operate at the same 2000 MHz frequency. Here is the graphics accelerator PowerVR GE8320. HUAWEI Y6 PRO (2019) has about 32 GB of free space for storing files, as well as 3 GB as RAM. Using microSD cards with a capacity of up to 512 GB, it is possible to significantly expand file storage. Here is a built-in battery with a capacity of 3020 mAh. The battery will last for 1-2 days in balanced use mode. A device is charged in a few hours. There is an Android 9.0 operating system with a pre-installed EMUI 9 shell.
In the AnTuTu test, a mobile device scores more than 55,000 points. If we consider that this is a purely budget smartphone, the result should not be embarrassing. Everyday applications and services can be used without tangible problems. Almost all programs run fast enough. At the same time, the gadget is not very good at multitasking. Therefore, it is best to open one application, or several, but not many.
Then the speed of the device will be kept at a high level. Many 2D games operate with a high frame rate. But demanding toys with advanced graphics are not so stable. PUBG, WoT and other similar projects run on the minimum graphic settings. But in some cases, you can try to set the average level of effects. It is necessary to note the support of gestures, as well as a special mode “Party” with the synchronization of musical compositions on two or more phones.
Communication and sound
Inexpensive Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) has a loud multimedia speaker. The sound of music through headphones is quite standard for this class. Few low frequencies, but many high. Speaking speaker gives you the opportunity to clearly hear the voice of the interlocutors. Microphones perfectly convey the speech of the user. There is Bluetooth 4.2, and also there is an FM radio. There is support for LTE Cat 6 wireless networks, where the data rate can reach 300 Mbps. The device works with two SIM cards (Nano-SIM).
The Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) has a 13-megapixel main camera with an aperture of 1.8 and an LED flash. There is a phase autofocus, which allows you to take fast enough pictures. The video will be removed in the resolution of FHD. This sensor is well manifested not only on sunny days, but also in low light conditions. Photos turn out bright, and also detailed. In this case, the set of settings is limited to the basic functionality. On the front side there is an 8-megapixel front camera with a 2.0 aperture. In this case, the display is able to act as a powerful source of light if self-portraits are made in the dead of night. Supported function Face Unlock. Moreover, face recognition occurs even in rooms that are deprived of light.
Huawei Y6 Pro (2019) is a very stylish budget-class smartphone. The device attracts attention due to the frameless display, and the version with the design under the skin can be called elegant. The low cost model is complemented by a good technical stuffing, as well as the current operating system.
