The Huawei Y5 2017 is running the Mediatek chipset which is very common in similarly priced smartphones. But in case of Huawei Y5 2017, the distinction comes in the form of EMUI (Emotion UI), Huawei’s Android skin that ships in all its Android running smartphones. Further highlights include a big 3000 mAh battery and Dual SIM 4G LTE functionality.

Huawei Y5 2017 – Unboxing

The box comes in a pretty vibrant red color that sets it apart quite well. On the top side of the box, you will find the name of the phone along with the 4G certification. The sides of the box carry the Huawei logo on one side and the 4G logo on the other. It is pretty clear that the highlight feature Huawei is selling with this smartphone is the 4G LTE capability. Moving on to the backside, the key details of the phone have been mentioned. Including the screen size, battery capacity, storage and camera specs.

The box opens in a very conventional way. The top slides away to reveal the contents. After opening, the first thing you would be greeted by would be the Y5 2017 itself. It comes packaged in a plastic overall and the screen is protected by a plastic covering which, again, details the key features. After the phone, you are greeted by the screen protector. This is a very good addition as most users put a screen protector first before they even use the phone. Moving further, you would find literature and your warranty info. This would sum up the first shelf, if you can call it that, of the box.

If you open the paper flap, you would find the charger tucked away. And, upon removal of another layer, you would find the microUSB cable and the headphones. The accessories are of nice quality especially the included charger and cable. Thankfully, the Huawei Y5 2017 doesn’t skip on including earphones.
