Huawei Y7 Prime 2019: Unboxing and First Impressions

In this article we will take you through the complete Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 unboxing experience. Not only that, but we will also discuss our initial reviews about the new budget series smartphone. Starting with the device’s placement, Y7 Prime 2019 is designed to succeed the older Y7 Prime 2018 which means there is a previous set benchmark which this phone needs to beat. Further, a key characteristic for all Huawei Y phones is the price-to-hardware ratio so the new Y7 Prime 2019 should hold strong in that department as well. Let’s now head on to unbox Y7 Prime 2019 from Huawei.

Key features from Y7 Prime 2019 which Huawei is proud about include the dewdrop minimal bezel display, dual AI cameras at the back, large 4,000mAh battery and also, a design that fits well with the brand’s modern smartphone lineup. Further, the price point is quite staggering as well — new Y7 Prime starts around 29,000PKR which is about ~$210. For our full review, stay tuned but now let’s begin with the unboxing.

Describing the box, it is pretty traditional with Huawei’s standard. There is a complete render showing the front display of the smartphone on the front of the box. Unlike other brands, the back of the box doesn’t actually relay any information about tech specs or features and is quite blank. However, at the bottom, there is information about the color of the device within, storage capacity and RAM as well. Removing the top cover, we find the device itself. Placed inside a plastic bag, the phone comes with plastic protectors on the front as well as the back. The front protector also lists down key hardware specs of the phone.

Digging further, there is the standard envelope which contains SIM ejection tool, a quick start guide, screen protector for the front and also a silicone case. We appreciate that Huawei has already included some key accessories which users buy anyway when they get a new phone. However, we would’ve liked to see the screen protector to be applied before hand. Further along, there is a travel adapter which charges at 2A and 5W along with a microUSB cable. As Y7 Prime 2019 does come with a headphone jack, there are a pair of earphones as well.

Discussing a bit about the device itself, the immediate feel is quite nice. Despite the back being plastic, the paint coating makes it look and also feel like glass. Further, the dewdrop display does stand out quite nicely. Unlike the notch trend which we have seen before, this dewdrop approach actually is quite bearable. The chassis which joins the front and back is quite seamless. Being made of plastic, it follows the back gradient and goes from dark colored at the bottom to a lighter shade at the top.

Running EMUI 8.2 which is itself based on Android 8.1 Oreo, in software terms, it is a bit dated. But thanks to EMUI, features such as multi-window and more are already integrated. We will surely test out the software as well as hardware in greater detail, for that, stay subscribed for our full review!
