What are the strengths of the Huawei Y3II? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the Huawei Y3II is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Huawei Y3II

Huawei Y3II's size

The Huawei Y3II is 2.6 inches (66.7 mm) wide, 5.3 inches (134.2 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.9 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Huawei Y3II, it weighs about 150 oz (150 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Huawei Y3II make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

The CPU performance of Huawei Y3II

The processing performance of the Huawei Y3II is quite low at 1.0GHz×4(Quad core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Huawei Y3II only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Huawei Y3II's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Huawei Y3II's storage capacity

The Huawei Y3II has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Huawei Y3II is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Huawei Y3II's screen

The Huawei Y3II has a 4.5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen quality of the Huawei Y3II is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The camera function of Huawei Y3II

The performance of the Huawei Y3II's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The Huawei Y3II comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Huawei Y3II

The Huawei Y3II's battery capacity is 2100 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the Huawei Y3II has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of Huawei Y3II

The Huawei Y3II's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Huawei Y3II

The merits of Huawei Y3II

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • It feels comparably light.

The demerits of Huawei Y3II

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The back camera is quite low-spec, so its not really suited for taking pictures to upload to social media.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
