Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: Design and Construction
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 and the Y9 2019, launched last year, have an similar design and structure given that they are both from the Y-series lineup. Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 has a glossy polycarbonate back panel with a gradient color pattern which still looks very stylish and premium. The bezels are slim on almost all sides except for the bottom since it houses the Huawei logo at its center.
Starting at the front, the first thing you’ll notice in this smartphone is the dewdrop notch design that houses the 16MP camera, but if you check above it, you can see the call speaker along with the LED notification light. One thing to note is that it doesn’t have any Gorilla Glass protection.
You will see the lone tray on the left of the phone that contains the Dual-nano SIM and dedicated microSD card slots. You can see the usual volume rocker-power button on the right. The buttons are well-placed since I don’t find any discomfort upon reaching them.
There is the 3.5mm audio port on the top while the noise-canceling microphone is found on the other side. The bottom part contains the symmetric grille-like pattern for the loudspeaker and the primary microphone. Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 uses a micro USB port that is located in the middle.
You’ll see the vertically aligned 13MP + 2MP cameras along with an LED flash on the back of the phone. unfortunately there’s no existing fingerprint scanner in this smartphone, but you can choose to use the face unlock feature instead.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 feels thin and light which is good for traveling. As usual, I am not fond of glossy back panels since they always have a high chance of getting fingerprint marks and smudges. However, it’s good that Huawei provided a free jelly case to remedy this problem.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: Display and Multimedia
The display of Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is 6.26-inch 19:9 HD+ with 1520 x 720px resolution which should be good enough to be a decent phone for watching videos. I’m not used to 720p resolutions as I’m more accustomed to 1080p; however, the smartphone is still color accurate and energetic which is good. I can also use it even under direct sunlight with just 70-80% brightness. It cannot play YouTube videos at 1080p, only the thing that I don’t like.
Audio quality is okay as the sounds are loud and clear when I listen to any music. The sound produced can be heard in a closed room full of people. The highs and mids are good while the lows, on the other hand, are almost non-existent.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: Camera
The cameras user interface of Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is pretty straightforward. The topmost row of the UI shows the shopping and QR code scanner, flash, AI camera enabler, and settings. There is five different modes for the rear camera, namely Aperture, Beauty, Photo, Video, and More that houses more features such as Pro, Panorama, AR lens, HDR, Filter, Watermark, and Download.
Starting with the 13MP + 2MP dual rear cameras, the quality of image is decent under good lighting conditions. The low-light condition shots, on the other hand, are subpar even though the primary lens has an f/1.8 aperture. Lights are slightly blown-out, and the details are not that impressive, and lastly, it is too muddy or grainy. Turning on the AI camera will adjust the brightness further and create a bit of improvement, but it is not enough to be even considered usable.
The images clicked from 16MP front camera under favorable lighting conditions are good and usable in social media posts. Details are good, color accuracy is spot on, and there are little to no noise surrounding the image. However, for low-light condition photos, the quality deteriorates, but it’s still better than the rear camera.
For video recording, Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 can shoot videos up to 1080p. There is no video stability in the footage that I took, but at least the details and color accuracy are decent and passable for social media posting. Check them out.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: OS, UI, and Apps
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 runs on EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Android 9 Pie is used in some of Huawei’s smartphones already but not on this one which is quite disappointing. Regardless, the user interface is pretty simple and clean which shouldn’t confuse users when navigating through the device. So if you’re not a fan of notch designs, then you can go to Settings and hide it.
Pre-installed applications include the usual Google apps, various Huawei apps such as Health, HiCare, AppGallery, Game Suite, Phone Clone, Booking.com, Ride mode, and Party mode. Out of the 32GB storage, you can use 24.5GB to store more files or install apps.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: Performance and Benchmarks
Powering the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, Adreno 506 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. This configuration seems similar to the OPPO A3s 3GB which is one of the most popular budget-friendly smartphone of 2018. It can run simple tasks such as social media posting, web browsing, video streaming, and file transferring easily. Also, the Face Unlock feature is snappy and accurate which is good since it doesn’t have any fingerprint scanners.
Take a look at the benchmark scores below:
- AnTuTu v7 – 73,561
- Geekbench 4.0 – 750 (Single-Core), 3,621 (Multi-Core), 2,913 (Compute)
- PC Mark – 4,481 (Work 2.0)
- 3D Mark – 440 (SSE – OpenGL ES 3.1), 484 (SSE – Vulkan)
- Androbench – 290.13 MB/s (Sequential Read), 121.39 MB/s (Sequential Write)
Games such as Asphalt Legends 9 and Tekken 7 will have low frame rates due to its intense graphics while Mobile Legends, Brawl Stars, and PUBG mobile can run smoothly with occasional frame drops. Overall, the Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is suitable for light-to-moderate graphics games, but you will still need to tweak the graphics settings to get the best possible performance and frame stability. The device warms up quickly when running games, usually around the rear camera area, but not to a point where it is uncomfortable in my hands.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: Connectivity and Battery Life
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 comes with the standard connectivity features such as Dual-SIM 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Call quality is good as we get loud and clear audio on the call speaker. I am disappointed in terms of sensors, the fact that this device doesn’t have any Gyroscope sensor which means that you cannot play AR games such as Pokemon Go and the accuracy of your location when using Google Maps will be affected.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 carries a 4,000mAh battery which is above average capacity in this price segment. In the PC Mark battery benchmark test, the device lasted for 14 Hours and 9 Minutes which is significantly longer than the Y9 2019. The phone lasted for 17 Hours and 25 Minutes on video loop test (1080p movie, 50% brightness, 50% sounds, airplane mode, w/ earphones). These numbers mean that it has an impressive battery life mainly thanks to its HD+ display.
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 Review: Conclusion
Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is a mixture of both good and bad components. The display is bright and vibrant, but it’s still at 720p resolution. The performance is decent and relatively fast thanks to its Snapdragon 450 chipset and 3GB RAM. The camera, on the other hand, is a roller coaster ride as the overall rear photos are sub-par to par only while the front camera is decent and good. Lastly, its battery life is impressive since it lasts longer than most competing smartphones in this price segment.
What I Like:
* Pre-installed screen protector
* Stylish and premium design
* Vibrant display
* Decent performance
* Good selfie camera
* Long-lasting battery life
What I Didn’t:
* 720p resolution
* Subpar low-light condition shots for the rear camera
* No Gyroscope
* Sitting at a dangerous price point
* Not yet Android 9 Pie
