Y5 Prime 2018 Review – Super Budget Friendly with a Good Display and Camera

Y5 Prime 2018 Review – Super Budget Friendly with a Good Display and Camera

Bezel less phones have been in the market since almost a year now and it seems that most OEMs are adapting this feature in their smartphones lineup. Initially, the feature was only to be found in higher end phones which could easily burn a deep hole in your pockets but with the passage of time, more and more devices including the long range of budget friendly mid range devices have also been getting on the band wagon as well. Huawei, in recent time has been one of them and with the recently launched 2018 Y series, the Chinese tech giants have really outdone themselves with the release of extremely budget friendly devices starting from the Y5, the Y7 and the Y9. Today we are going to take a closer look at the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 which is especially designed and made for the younger generation. The device at first glance gives a feeling of a sturdy looking phone and thanks to its 18:9 display, the Huawei Y5 Prime smartphone has a relatively narrow bezel. At 142 grams, the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 is a very lightweight smartphone. The phone’s compact measurements make it well-suited for those with smaller hands. Thanks to its rounded edges, the device feels good in your hand. At a thickness of 8.3 mm (0.33 inches), the case is also built quite thin. Even though the back of the device comes in non-glossy matte finish, it is still advisable to get a cover for some added protection and grip. Coming onto the display, the device comes with a 5.45 inch, 1440 x 720 pixel display with 295 PPI and even though its not Full HD, the color saturation on the screen still looks quite bright and vibrant making it good to use without any significant complains. Going under the hood, the Huawei Y5 Prime sports a Mediatek MT6739 Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, 2GB RAM, 16 GB of on board storage with micro SD card support, a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera (which takes decent if not exceptionally good images considering the price range), a 3020 mAh battery that can easily last a whole day on a single charge. There is no USB Type-C support considering its a budget friendly device. Coming to the software side of things, the Huawei Y5 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box on top of Huawei’s own EMUI 8.0 User Interface. There have been rumors that the Y5 along with the other devices in the Y series will also be receiving the Android P update once it is officially announced but these are still rumors that have yet to be...

Huawei is Ushering a Rebirth of Your Smartphones with the GPU Turbo Technology

Huawei is Ushering a Rebirth of Your Smartphones with the GPU Turbo Technology

Huawei smartphones are all set to get a significant boost in their performance – thanks to a trendsetting GPU Turbo technology. The technology, which will be periodically rolled out through an over-the-air (OTA) update, vastly improves the overall graphics processing efficiency, from quality to performance and power consumption. Once installed, users will be able to enjoy ultra performance, while playing games like Revenge of Sultans, Clash of Kings, PUBG MOBILE, Invasion: Modern Empire and Asphalt8. “Until recently, GPUs for mobile phones faced a host of technical constraints like storage, heat dissipation and energy consumption. Thus, the continuous rise in demand for more powerful mobile graphics was a great challenge for all mobile phone developers to cope with. This is where our revolutionary GPU Turbo update comes in play. By improving integration between the device’s hardware and EMUI software, users will benefit from greater graphics processing efficiency allowing for the ultimate gaming experience,” said Blueking Wang, Manager, Huawei Consumer Business Group. The unveiling of GPU Turbo comes at a critical juncture, where GPUs are unable to keep up with the demand of more graphically-intensive applications, such as gaming and VR. Huawei’s approach to re-architect how graphics are processed at the system level is a novel method, representing the company’s commitment to innovation and supporting its devices for an extended period of time post-launch. Huawei engineers took design cues from a car’s turbocharger, which uses a cylinder to feed extra air into the combustion engine to give the vehicle an extra boost of power at no additional fuel cost. The same concept was applied to GPU Turbo, which takes its namesake from the turbochargers of automobiles. With GPU Turbo installed, graphics processing efficiency is improved by up to 60 percent while overall SoC power consumption is saved by 30 percent. The mobile gaming segment represents USD 46.1 billion worldwide, encompassing 42 percent of the total USD 108.9 billion market for gaming revenues in 2017, reported Newzoo, a market intelligence organization for the gaming, mobile and eSports industries. Aside from mobile gaming, GPU Turbo will deliver an optimized EMUI experience for Huawei devices. The performance boost will also benefit nascent technologies such as AR and VR, opening up boundless opportunities including for virtual classroom, online shopping, telemedicine and...
