Huawei Y7 2018 review
The latest tech in a more affordable smartphone
Our Huawei Y7 2018 review brings with it all of the latest tech including Face Unlock, a FullView Display and AR Lens. However, the price tag isn’t high and this lets shoppers on a more modest budget enjoy the fun that has previously been reserved for flagship phone owners.
FullView Display & Blue Mirror body
The Huawei Y7 2018 has a high screen to body ratio. The 5.99” FullView Display has HD+ resolution to take advantage of this. There are extra rows of pixels (1440 x 720) and this improves split screen multitasking and lets you see more of a webpage before you need to scroll.
Comparison: HD resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels.
The Blue Mirror body design is highly reflective and looks really high end. You can however go for a matte effect by choosing the Black or Gold colour variants. This Huawei phone is also pretty slim at 7.8mm and really light at 155g.
The Huawei Y7 2018 has a quality Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4GHz octa-core processor with 2GB RAM. The processor is right on par for a phone in this pricing bracket, although the actual experience seems much faster than expected. This is because the phone learns your behaviours over time and allocates resources to them for a faster and smoother experience.

Phone Set Up
The Huawei Y7 2018 ticks all boxes when it comes to unlocking the phone. You can choose to use Face Unlock facial recognition or you can use Fingerprint Unlock.
The fingerprint sensor is located on the back and even if you don’t use it to unlock the phone, you can use it to turn off your morning alarm or for flicking through your photo gallery.
This Huawei phone has 16GB of internal memory and this should give you plenty of room for moving your old content over on to it. If you save lots of photos and videos on your phone, then you may find that you need more memory. You can expand the memory with a microSD card and these aren’t expensive, making it a viable option to online cloud storage.
The Huawei Y7 2018 has Google’s latest Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. This gives you loads of handy apps such as the Google Assistant and Google Maps. Huawei gives the OS a visual overhaul with EMUI 8.0, so the experience is distinctive when compared to other Android phones.
If you love to sing, then the Karaoke mode will be for you with real time sound feedback.
Camera & Video
The 8MP selfie camera has a toning flash and studio grade lighting effects, to make it look like a professional photographer has been used. You can have plenty of fun with Huawei AR lens, which lets you add cosplay elements. You can also change the background to either appear somewhere else or to simply be more creative.
