Huawei Y7 Prime Metal Back/Plastic Frame

Huawei Y7 Prime – Build and Design

Huawei Y7 Prime has a distinct design, from a more frequent mid-ranger looks, with sturdy aluminium back panel. On the front the Y7 Prime has a smooth 2.5D curved glass. Weighing only 165 grams, Huawei Y7 Prime is just 8.4mm thicker with curvy rounded frame around.

Though the frame is plastic but it’s a tough one with a little taller top and bottom portions. The metal back panel is fixed into body and doesn’t allow users to remove – hence the battery is not user-removable too.

The 5.5-inch screen features an IPS LCD display with only 720p resolution as mentioned above. Which is quite common in the price range however it helps the system consume less power indeed. The screen size provides around 71% visual area of the front side – commonly referred as screen-to-body ratio.

It makes the pixel density around 267ppi which is not too great at sharpness but mostly acceptable. I personally prefer to have better power backup with a moderate display resolution like this.

Huawei Y7 Prime Display

On the front, you can see that the lower portion of the screen is just printing the brand name “Huawei” while on the upper portion, there are standard components – an earpiece in the middle, proximity and ambient light sensor, and a front facing camera.

Front-camera comes with screen-flash feature to brighten up the nearer subject for some better selfies.

Other common components include the micro USB port on the bottom side of the phone along with the speaker grill. The mouthpiece or the primary mic is hidden inside the second grill. On top, there is only a 3.5mm audio jack.

On the right side of the phone, you will have the power button and the volume rocker. The hybrid SIM slot is available on the left side of the phone. Like many now, Huawei Y7 Prime also has dual-SIM support but when used with a microSD card, only one SIM can be used.

As noted above, Huawei Y7 Prime has aluminium back panel with matte finish. The frame is a solid plastic which doesn’t feel like plastic at all – it’s good. Top and bottom sides of the frame are extended inwards joining at the metal back plate. The metal back is slightly curved on the left and right sides and directly meets at the frame

On the upper portion of the back panel, we have a primary camera of 12 megapixels with an LED flash. Right below the camera, we have the fingerprint scanner. Down there on the back we have standard branding and labeling on the phone.

Huawei Y7 Prime – Display

Impressive, it is, on the Huawei Y7 Prime. Being a mid-range in this price range, the display is quite impressive its maximum brightness. It also performed better outdoors and sunlight readability is appreciable. Blacks are too great for this mid-ranger to provide an appealing contrast ratio.

The front glass is quite smooth but really prone to fingerprints. Once it catches the prints, you will find it harder to clean them off.

Overall the readability experience is quite good with reduced reflections when using outdoors.
