The Huawei Y6 available in three color options i.e. Sapphire Blue, Midnight Black, Amber Brown & will also have a built in fingerprint sensor as the primary security feature, along with the host of connectivity options in terms of 3G, 4G, GPS, Wifi Bluetooth capabilities. The phone will come with 32 GB of internal storage. Huawei installs its EMUI phone app, which looks and feels like Google’s default phone app. The app opens to a list of your recent calls, under which sits a keypad. The phone app is arranged by tabs that sit at the top of the screen, which include tabs for contacts and favorites. The phone app has a dedicated settings menu too, in which you can configure things such as call blocking. The Y6 2019 has decent call quality. The earpiece sounds loud at no cost to clarity, with voices reproduced clearly during calls. It is worth noting that during calls we heard a faint background noise. The microphone is sensitive, which is both a good and bad thing. On the one hand, the microphone picks up quiet voices well, but it also can be overwhelmed by loud voices. Talking over speakerphone works well too, with voices sounding clear and undistorted. However, the microphone is not sensitive enough to capture soft voices yet breaks off with loud voices. The Y6 2019 has a 13 MP rear camera with a monochrome flash and a 5 MP front-facing camera. These are solid specs for a smartphone in this price range. The front-facing camera takes photos that are well lit in dark areas and overexposed in bright ones, partly thanks to its LED flash. The 5 MP camera only has fixed focus, which requires objects being at a certain distance away from the camera before coming into focus. Front-facing shots lack detail, but this is to be expected from such a cheap smartphone. Huawei Y6 2019 sports a 6.09-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1560×720 pixels along with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It is powered by MediaTek’s Helio A22 processor paired with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The device comes with 2GB of RAM along with 32GB internal storage expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card. It runs Google’s Android 9.0 Pie operating system with the company’s own EMUI 9.0 skin on top. All of this is backed by a 3,020mAh non-removable battery. In terms of security options, the device comes with a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back with support for facial recognition. The device comes measuring at 156.28×73.50x8mm and is powered by a 3020mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, the Huawei Y6 2019 comes with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, and Micro-USB port. There is also a fingerprint scanner at the back and the phone comes with an ambient light sensor, gravity sensor, and proximity sensor. There is also support for FM radio, and also comes with a headphone jack. The multi-colored back covers remain the most enticing thing about these modern low-range phones. But since the number of possible color combinations is finite, Huawei and others try to interest us with different patterns of reflections and overflows. In the case of the Huawei Y6, these are diagonal curves that transform into waves when the angle of reflection changes. It is almost impossible to describe this effect.
