2018 has been a busy year for giant Chinese OEM, Huawei. Despite the ban of its devices from the US and allied forces, Huawei hasn’t left its manufacture of smartphones to hit a downturn. One of the devices in its arsenal is the Huawei Y5 Prime (2018).

As the Y series focuses on budget users, the Y5 Prime (2018) also continues in that legacy. The camera department is intact as it sports 13MP rear shooter & a 5MP front-facing shooter. Other sections of the smartphone are quite decent too.

Without wasting time folks, let’s lock the place down as we step further.

Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) Quick Review

A careful perusal of Huawei mobile phones will make you draw one natural conclusion: There’s hardly any Huawei smartphone without a Blue-coloured variation. It’s Huawei thing, and the Y5 Prime (2018) joins the vast array of Huawei phones with Blue being one of its colourations. Its other colours are Black and Gold.

Huawei Y5 Prime (2018) is sleek & light-weighted thanks to its 8.3mm thickness and 142g weight. Its other dimensions are 146.5mm length & 70.9mm width.
