Huawei mobile brand has been one of the leading smartphones manufacturers in the world. Having been known for producing fantastically great devices over the years. Huawei hit rock bottom after being placed on moratorium or should I say ban by US government from acquiring Chipset for their phones. 

We'll that has not stop them though as they have found an alternative to production. And hence the release of Hauwei Y9a and Hauwei Y6p recently in Nigeria and globally.

The highlights of these devices is that, Hauwei have opted to use MediaTek Chipset on both phones. Especially the Huawei Y9a is here with the well known MediaTek Helio G80 Chipset which has been used also on Redmi9. While the MediaTek Helio P22 Chipset has been used on the entry level Huawei Y6p.

If there is any brand standing out globally in terms of Android smartphones, then Hauwei, Samsung, Xiaomi, Nokia and Google pixels are the top contenders.

The Hauwei Y6p was launched in September 2020 globally. The most outstanding aspect of the Hauwei Y6p are as follows:

The Ram and storage capacity
The charging speed calibration
The Main Camera size and arrangements
The design language

These are the few highlights of the device. Hauwei have gained alot of fans global and Nigeria in particular.

And need I remind you that the ban placed on Hauwei has pushed many of their customers to brands like Xiaomi and Samsung devices. Knowing fully well that their smartphones are coming without Google play services as Hauwei have found a work around by creating their own app store called Hauwei AppGallery . 

The overall interface is still on Android Operating system. And the Android version on the Hauwei Y6p is the Android 10 operating system.

Smartphones these days doesn't come with small displays any longer as almost all Brands have opted for larger screens. Giving end users with no choice than to put other factors into consideration before purchasing android phones since large screens are now common.

In this aspect, the display size of the Hauwei Y6p is a big one.  I think the bezel has been reduced to the nearest minimum to make the phone look fantastic.

The screen Resolution is a  1080 x 2400 pixels that is now common on midrange and even low end devices. The screen aspect ratio is 20:9. Having an approximately (~397 ppi density) in the Display department.

The 6.3" Dewdrop Display4 with an 88.4% screen-to-body ratio provides a wide and immersive visual experience.5 With a diameter of 2.65 mm, the tiny and discreet front camera with a narrow frame achieves more room to showcase the exciting game graphics and fantastic images with less interruptions

One interesting thing about this display is that it does have a cut out or a notch for a selfie camera. 

With a rounded corners design on the display, the diagonal length of the screen is 6.3 inches when measured according to the standard rectangle (the actual viewable area is slightly smaller.

I wish the display was an Amoled display but Hauwei has opted for an LCD screen. I know that this will come as a downside to the device especially to the potential users who are lovers of better displays.  The price will determine if this device is worth it in the end.


Folks, to be honest with you, I didn't found this Chipset a surprising thing to me especially if you are a follower of other brands and OEMs . You would realise that many devices have been operating under this Chipset.

The Chipset in question is that MediaTek Helio P22 Chipset that has been used on entry level Devices like those from, Infinix and Tecno. Check out the Review section for confirmation.

The MediaTek Helio P22 is not a gaming centric Processor. Mediatek Helio P22 is a (12 nm) sized Processor. It's Central Processing unit CPU is an Octa-core Processor. Octa-core Processor has four of its cores called Cortex-A53 clocked at 2.0 GHz each and another four cores named Cortex-A53 all clocked at 1.5 GHz.

The Graphics processing Unit know as the GPU is basically the IMG GE8320 650 MHz. It is in charge of graphics activities such as gaming and other power demanding tasks that has to do with imagery.

As seen on other entry level Devices. The MediaTek Helio P22 Chipset cannot Game adequately. If you are looking for a device meant for gaming why don't you look into higher Device like Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 9 pro, Redmi K30 Pro, Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC and many more. Check out this blog for more details. And almost all the aforementioned devices are currently selling even below this device.

But as a moderate user and a user who does not expect alot from a device. I can say that this is one of the devices to look into.


As an entry level phone, I would say that If there is anything that captured my attention first on this device I would say the memory configurations of the Hauwei Y6p did. The Card slot is a NM (Nano Memory), up to 512GB that uses shared SIM slot. Meaning this phone has a non dedicated SD card slot.

Internal storage: The internal storage configurations is a 64GB of ROM sufficient enough for storage of files and applications. And if it wont be enough you could make use of the SD card slot provided on this device.

RAM: The Ram of the Hauwei Y6p is a 3GB configurations. But the Variant available in Nigeria is the 3GB of Ram option. This will go along way in assisting the Chipset in terms of multitasking ability of the device.

I am not really satisfied with this memory configurations but the nano memory card slot made available will pose a threat to users in Nigeria as the SD card is not common in Nigeria yet. 


HUAWEI Y6p is equipped with a main camera, an ultra-wide angle camera, a depth camera and a macro camera. Backed by advanced AI technology, the three rear cameras can read the scene and cooperate seamlessly as one to take stunning photos in direct sunlight or in the dark, in the distant or up close. 

Equipped with triple rear cameras, a 13 MP clear main lens, a 5 MP wide angle lens and a 2 MP depth lens, the HUAWEI Y6p always delivers brilliant images with fine detail and clarity.. 

And I can reiterate that if you are looking for a device based on photography then you have found one on the Hauwei Y6p phone. The 120° wide angle lens let you fit more in a frame, which is ideal for shooting in a tight space and gives you more room for cropping. Thanks to the anti-distortion algorithm, you can take full and clear wide-angle photos without distorted objects6. 

The camera configurations is a Quad camera setup listed as follows: 
13 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), PDAF
5 MP, f/2.4, 120˚ (ultrawide)
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro)

It Features a Quad-LED flash, an HDR, and a panorama mode in the camera settings department.

Magic in the Night: With up to 6-second exposure processing for handheld, you can effortlessly capture more shadow and highlight details in high dynamic range scenes. Thanks to the 51200 ISO and noise reduction algorithm, you can snap gorgeous and sharp night photos without a tripod.

It supports a Video settings for 4K@30fps, 1080p@30fps, and a gyro-EIS. EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) technology can compensate for camera shakes to help you record stable handheld videos. You can focus on getting creative and recording beautiful and smooth footages in motion without extra tools.

The picture taken with this camera set-up were absolutely fantastic. And with a sweet smooth EMUI android skin, it had made camera tweaking a thing of jealousy.


An 8 MP water drop cut out is housing the wide camera that is placed on this phone. It Features an HDR and a Video set at 1080p@30fps. You can get better camera and all these camera configurations on phones like Redmi Note 9 pro, Xiaomi Poco X3 etc.

I have no negative comment regarding the camera aspect of this phone. Because everything is just greatly constructed. Except if you are not a fan of Pop up selfie camera.


In this department, Huawei is one of the leading brands in light, smooth, fast and efficiently customized Optimized operating system. Hardly would you see their devices lagging due to buggy OS.

The Hauwei Y6p has come with an Android 10, and an a customized EMUI 10.1 skin. With no Google Play Services. Like I made mentioned of at the beginning of this article. The restrictions placed on Hauwei by the United States government caused it. 

But that is not the end of life as Hauwei has introduced their own version of app store called the AppGallery where you could get all types of apps you will need on an android device. That is cool right?

So if you are having a second thought on purchasing this device based on the reasons mentioned above, think no more as everything is now sorted out. 


The Hauwei Y6p has almost all the connectivities available but with an exception for NFC and a 5G connectivity.

Technology GSM / HSPA / LTE
2G bands GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2

The finger print sensor mounted on the Hauwei Y6p is a side mounted fingerprint reader that was very fast in responding to operations. Added to this is the face unlock, Pattern, pin and password mode of operation. One has no reason to complain about the security of this device has it has all it takes to function properly.


Hauwei Y6p has a 5000 mAh large battery and AI power saving technology allow you to enjoy your journey without frequent recharging. HUAWEI Y6p is designed for normal charging speed and long battery life. With 10 W HUAWEI charging speed, you cannot charge up its battery efficiently, .

The large 5000 mAh battery supports all your daily tasks for several days without frequent charging. Also, the HUAWEI Y6p can be used as a one-way reverse charger to refuel other phones effortlessly. Furthermore, the Backup Mode on this device allows it to support two-way backup for data and photos on Android phones

This is the kind of a device needed in Nigeria and Africa at large due to the poor nature of power or electricity around us. The battery capacity is enough for day to day activities with light and moderate usage.

But in heavy usage the Hauwei Y6p was able to produce a SOT of around 13 hours of light Gaming. Do not forget that due to heating issue associated with MediaTek Chipsets and with a large screen, the battery draining was a bit faster.


The Look and Feel You Love is found on the HUAWEI Y6p. With the special coating and sophisticated craftsmanship, the back cover is sparkling with stunning curves under every light and shadow. Elegance and radiance is showcased from every perspective.

The overall feel is great. It feels smooth and grip able in the hand. And it doesn't not feel cheap at all.

COLOURS Of Hauwei Y6p

The following are the sweet know colours of the Hauwei Y6p. They include the
  • Emerald Green,

The preorder prize fixed by Hauwei is NGN N65, 000 as the official price of Hauwei Y6p in Nigeria. Am a bit skeptical about the price only because of the Chipset used. All the rest Features of this phone is just great. But there are devices with better Processor with a better battery size selling even Below the Hauwei Y6p. Check most of the Xiaomi devices in this blog and you will attest to this claims. Let me mention few, xiaomi PoCo X3Redmi Note 9 proRedmi Note 8 ProInfinix Zero 8, Tecno Camon 16 premier and many more.

My take on the Hauwei Y6p is simple. Every Feature on this phone is stunning as an entry level device no doubt. When compared with other phones having almost the same features with the same Chipset which is selling at almost less than the price of this device with better battery size and a moderate 18W charging speed, I would say that the Hauwei Y6p is over priced.

 I think this device is over priced really with numerous devices scattered across all Brands and selling below the Hauwei Y6p. But if you decide on going for this phone I would say it has the ability of ticking almost all the boxes. So go for it. But my take on this device remain the same.

I just hope huawei will find solution to that soonest. what is your take on this?
