First opinion, very solid piece, stable system low crashes of emui 3.1 lite.. this Ui is very hard for this configuration. Will be more stable if it will run a pure android lollipop 5.1.1.
LCD screen is a old technology so there is a big mistake, after all is a solid piece of phone. I recommend to a non aggressive users. there are som blogs with a custom roms unofficial, like cyanogen rom 12 and 13. worth of a try. thanks
in term of price/quality
back camera is medium but front is poor
phone speed is good , battery medium it take 5h30min on wifi connection
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.
