We've conducted a detailed review of the Huawei Y5II, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Huawei Y5II's features, performance, reviews

Huawei Y5II's size

The Huawei Y5II has a width of 2.8 inches (72 mm), a length of 5.7 inches (143.8 mm), and a thickness of 0.4 inches (8.9 mm). It might be possible to operate it with one hand, but depending on the person it might feel big. In addition, the weight of the Huawei Y5II is about 135 oz (135 g). Even if you are operating it with one hand it feels almost weightless. However, depending on the person, you may feel tired after using it for a while.

Assessing the overall ease of holding the Huawei Y5II, it has some difficulties but if you use it based on its strengths and weaknesses it will not cause many issues.

Huawei Y5II's screen

Huawei Y5II has a 5 inch display. It is large enough and you will rarely encounter issues due to the screen size. However, note that it is not very suited for writing long text.

Huawei Y5II has a mid-range screen. It is OK for normal use, but if you want to enjoy photos, videos, or games at their best, you may feel dissatisfied.

Huawei Y5II's CPU specs

With the 1.3GHz×4(Quad core) for processing power, the Huawei Y5II has relatively low performance, and for gaming, watching movies and the like it may feel slightly lacking in power. However, for usage such as net browsing, phone calls, Twitter and Instagram you probably won't feel much stress.

The Huawei Y5II has only 1GB of RAM, quite a small amount. Cases of insufficient RAM occur regularly so even when using light apps there will be instability in operation and jerkiness.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the Huawei Y5II, it is a low-end smartphone and even in everyday use feels jumpy and jerky. There will probably be a lot of cases when you feel that it is lacking in performance.

Huawei Y5II's storage size

The data storage capacity of the Huawei Y5II is 8GB, and if its main use is for texting and social media then there is no problem, but if you plan to use it for things like photography, filming, and games, you should go with one that is a step up.

The Huawei Y5II is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.

Huawei Y5II's camera specs

Huawei Y5II has a 8 MP main camera, which can serve you well in most cases. However, you might feel a little dissatisfied with the quality of the images.

Also, Huawei Y5II has an 2 MP front camera, which is a very low figure. Unless you do not care about image quality, you should probably choose a higher-grade smartphone.

Huawei Y5II's battery performance

The battery performance of the Huawei Y5II is 2200 mAh, which is a normal capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the Huawei Y5II has a normal amount of battery life. There is nothing to be worried about with everyday use. However, if you are using the internet or playing a game for a long time, you might feel a bit frustrated with the battery life.

Huawei Y5II's general rating

The Huawei Y5II is a budget smartphone. As the main smartphone it is somewhat insufficient, and you should consider a slightly higher-end smartphone if possible. It will be enough for people who use only basic functions such as telephone and internet, or people who do not use smartphones.
