3 reasons why I’m buying the new Huawei Y7 Prime 2018

The new Y7 Prime 2018 is an upgraded version of last year’s Y7 Prime. The device is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and comes with 3GB of RAM.

The Huawei Y7 Prime has a 5.99-inch 1440 x 720 FullView display with 269 PPI pixel density and 18:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with the option of an expandable memory of up to 256Gigs. Y7 Prime has a 3,000mAh Li-ion battery.

Yeah, that’s all just specs. Last week. while at the Accra Mall. I happened to pass by the Huawei Shop there and spent a few minutes with the device. Well, the time spent was enough to convince me to get one.

Here are the top reasons why I will be getting the Huawei Y7 Prime 2018.


Dual Cameras have become the norm, almost a convention and Huawei is already on that ship. Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 comes equipped with 13MP + 2 MP rear cameras. The wide-aperture feature gives DSLR like depth to your photos (those photos with a very blurred background; the ones you see off professional DSLR cameras).

I spent a great deal of time testing the front camera. I mostly find myself taking selfies always and for me, the front camera is very important in making a buying decision. The 8-Megapixel front camera was awesome. It also has a LED flashlight – which I never used, but the quality of the photos it gave out was amazing. Lots of details and great colour.


I never had the chance to use last years Y7. However, what I do know is that it was powered by the Snapdragon 435, higher than the Snapdragon 430 processor in the 2018 model. That notwithstanding, the current 2018 model was so smooth to use. Juggling between the already installed applications, the camera, recording videos and playing them back all went well. There was no lagging or freezing.

General Design and FullView Display

The device that I got my hands on was in Huawei’s signature blue colour. Bear in mind that the Y7 Prime 2018 comes in 3 solid colours: Black, Blue and Gold. Although the rear cover of the phone felt like it was made of plastic, the finishing and colour gave it a design, while mastering a premium look.

Then comes the 18:9 screen ration, what Huawei calls the FullView Display. 18:9 displays are perfect for multitasking using multi-window where each app is rendered in neat squares of 720 x 720 pixels each. The FullView Display, together with the bezel-less design affords the phone a modern 2018 design.
