Y5 display is very POOR, even Laggy-Sammy's J1 has a better & brighter display! Sammy has an LED display, not the watery LCD of the Huawei. Snapdragon 210 is even more reason not to waste your money on this.
Saw it at Edgars today, what an UGLY fone!!! It's heavy, thick & made of horrible-looking plastic. Say nothing about EMUI, look bad. But at R999, this sounds like a hanger, what with the Dragon-210! I'll wait a while & see if MTN & Vodacom brings J1-Nxt & J1-2016!
Fa, 25 Dec 2015is this good video quality for make Skype calls?Skype would KILL this fone, at 115MB, it will hang for days! I wouldn't recommend you use Skype with this.
I wanna go buy myself one of this device, checking your comments here i am interested.
thank you ppl
truth, 08 Feb 2016if you playing music and trying to go to internet . the music app jams and give scratches. tha... moreSomething must be wrong with your phone because im typing this on internet while music player is playing with no problems....i think you may have too many apps installed which runs in background and killing ram..... Been using this phone everyday for a while now with no problems.... O and my camera is pretty good...... Strange haha
if you playing music and trying to go to internet . the music app jams and give scratches. that very bad coz that mean you cant do internet and music at the same time. the 3.5 camera of a blackberry curve is better.
People should remember this phone only costs R999... Which other phone is better at that price? Nothing....
I purchased mine on 11/15 and my parents purchased theirs on 12/15. They are all satisfied. I am mostly happy. Disadvantages: camera has no macro and its quality is near to poor. When taking pics from A4, text is only seldom readable. Sometimes phone also nags for 1-5 secs. Speaker-HF quality is so poor that it can not be used in any serious matter.
For this price, overall experience is excellent. With a bit better camera, I could easily imagine this is 150-200Â€ phone.
I have been using this phone for a few months now and compare to the Samsung j1 ace its far better and faster. I have seen 2 out 5 j1 ace being returned for repair and has not seen one y560 comeback yet. its easy to use and easy to afford
Fa, 25 Dec 2015is this good video quality for make Skype calls?am happy with it. I think Huawei has made a really afforadable smartphone
Pikkie , 09 Jan 2016Gives the "Big Boys" a run for there money. The best Lte phone in it's price range.I totally agree. I could not bring myself to pay for the iphone 6s and this made a much better option given the price
Value for money. I was torn with the price of iphone and I simply went for this one at it costs less than 10% the price of iphone 6s
I bought this mobile hoping to be better from Y3. but found this is worse than Y3. it is not lollipop. complete lagroid. I use imo messenger on y3 and working good. in this Y5 i see the picture before i hear the voice in imo. battery is like petromax. within two hours drained eventhough on wi-fi. i disappointed from this piece of huawei. 1GB ram is useless here. in the browser there is no flash player support. internet radio pages those work on flash player are not playing. i lost my money. my first bad experience with huawei......
