I think this phone gets really slow after a while because the "8GB" space is really 4GB due to default partitions, and that gets filled up really quickly with modern apps. Regular (and increasingly frequent) clearing of useless files in storage helps to speed up the phone (discernnible but not by much), but it becomes a real test of patience over time.
Agree with many of the opinions here: spend more money and get a better phone. The time you save operating the phone will make up for any cost difference.
The worst phone I've ever had. Only had it for about a year and have had problems within the first few months. It's ridiculously slow at almost everything, and I don't even do heavy duty things on this thing. Typing is the main downfall. I wouldn't recommend the Huawei Y6 to anyone. Not even for a child who'll use it for games, or even just WhatsApp.

Worst phone, disconnecting while playing online games, regret buying this phone.
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2017Ive had this phone for almost 2 years now and its absolute garbage. Would never buy it again c... moreThe Huawei y6 was fast at first. But it is definitely worth the more money to go for something else. The phone is slow as after 1 year. I would have expected it to last much longer than this. Do not buy if you're thinking of buying one. I am typing this right now and it took like 30 seconds just to load google.
its an excellent phone. I use d 2gig ram and it's been awesome for me though I don't really do heavy tasking apps but so far ita been a great phone for me
I am using this phone for 5mo, its good phone for basic task like fb messenger, internet and basic aps... Dont expect to do heavy duty things or gaming. For standard usage its great and performance is good. I am happy with it. 5/5
So far so good.Battery life is good,charging is fast .Display is good,but texting can be a problem.1GB of RAM but no problem,like I sad ,so far so good.
Ive had this phone for almost 2 years now and its absolute garbage. Would never buy it again cuz its a waste of money to have a phone that barely functions properly. Since i got it there's so many times where the keyboard will freeze so i can't type, or it wont appear on the screen. Right now the biggest problem is videos and storage not loading. Whenever i try taking a screenshot, it said "storage currently in use" and even when i try to delete stuff it stays on the damn phone and continues telling me i have no space on my phone like jeez
Bilal, 01 May 2017Is this phone worth it? Does it have any problems then tell me.i have the phone for about 2 years now i would say it is sluggish performance,
camera shot came out often blurry and delayed and irresponsible. If you run heavy duty apps it would be more likely to crash or freeze, there's a chance it might turn your screen off.
if you want fast performance phone in a budget price i would highly recommend go with Huawei p8 lite 2017 or Motorola G4
