Its a good phone however takes too long to get the max charge beside that smooth phone and good OS. Really good purchase for such a low cost phone.
I am using this phone since 1 year and I must say, its an awesome phone. Charging Battery is fast (2.30-3 hours), battery backup is too high, I always use internet but my phone's charger goes for approximately 2 days.
I am using FB, twitter, WhatsApp but 1.22 GB RAM always remain free out of 2 GB RAM.
1. Internal memory is only 16GB and you cannot use external memory for app installation.
2. Camera is too poor.
3. Screen brightness is low.
I also have a problem there are times when I'm on YouTube and I received a text message so of course I'll type my reply and then...out of nowhere! It just disappears mmrs I have to leave YouTube and then go to messages and rewrite my message again! And sometimes my music disappeas not deleted but suddenly out of nowhere it just disappears poof! Like that so I have to leave the app I'm using and play the music again and also when it does stop or disappears when I leave the app I'm using the phone does this thing where the apps are not there then appears again like what happens when you restart a phone like it's not there then appears again it's normal if you restart it but if you're just using it and it does the thing it's not normal at all! And the biggest problem is the OVERHEATING problem! Like ughhhhh!!! Pls HUAWEI fix this problem!
It's HORRIBLE in multitasking!
Absolutely horrendous at toggling between apps. It drives you crazy. I'm on Uber. I get a text message, read it, get back to Uber and now it's loading from scratch in the middle of my trip. And to get back to my trip i have to start another trip, at which point it tells me i already have an ongoing trip and takes me to it. Go to my browser to complete the post i was typing but now it's reloading the page, and it has cleared my message. So now I have to type it all over again. Go back to Google maps and I have to re-search the place and the direction because...you guessed it! The map is restarting, from scratch. On Skype, go to contacts to retrieve a number but now it has dropped my call. Extremely frustrating!
And this isn't happening because i'm using up the RAM. 2GB of RAM and i'm yet to reach half of it. So it's got plenty enough RAM for my usage. I only have a few media and essential apps (none of the memory hogger like FB messenger and such) so i'm hardly using up storage memory either. Plus I have a 34GB SD card where i keep all things. So basically, it's not supposed to be doing this.
I've gone through all the battery optimization options on the phone but it hasn't solved the problem. I've also gone through the developer option. I have a phone with 1GB RAM, although, really slow, it will never kill or reload apps - everything is right where I leave it. With this phone I almost never reach 1GB of usage and it acts like I'm using everything it's got.
A little research and i'm learning it's Huawei's firmware that was intentionally made this way to conserve power prolonging battery. VLC even stopped offering their player on play store to a bunch of Huawei models because of this. Users would give VLC low rating because it keeps shutting down and VLC had nothing to do with it. Why Huawei would do this rendering your phone unusable in a multitasking world is beyond me.
There is nothing "smart" about this so-called smartphone. Totally regret buying it!
It lags alot with multitasking especially with messenger and facebook but with games its AMAZING 40000 point on AnTuTu Benchmark its great the only bad thing in this phone is the display
its very low light and bad colors but in the end its very affordable for this price now 100$
Faruk, 18 Nov 2017Any one Can Help Me ? Which Method Try To Root It, Huawei Y52 2017 MYA-L22I just rooted my phone (Huawei Y5 (2017) MYA-L22) just a few hours ago. I used this method ---> https://romprovider.com/2017/10/twrp-root-huawei-y5-2017-mya-l22/
