- Analysis by Christelle Nina
The Huawei Y7's 8-megapixel frontal camera is easily one of its most attractive features. Compared to many other mid-range models, the said device has an upper hand resolution-wise. Flipping the phone over shows a 12-megapixel main sensor . It's not as promising as the selfie cam, since 13-megapixel-and-up shooters seem to be the norm in the said subcategory as of July 2017.

A clear setback for the Y7 lies on its display's specs. Coming with a 5.5-inch screen that bears a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, the resulting fineness rating is at an unimpressive 267DPI .
Performance-wise, this smartphone takes a backseat with a maximum clock speed of only 1.4GHz . Its RAM size is acceptable at 2GB, but is nothing wow-worthy.

On the other hand, its 4000mAh battery definitely deserves some merit. Along with this power rating comes the promise of 20 hours of video playback and 15 hours of browsing .

As for the pros and cons related to its physical characteristics, the Y7 boasts of a metal body and a curved glass display . The caveat here, however, is that it's actually quite thick and heavy at 8.35mm and 165 grams , compared to many competing phones.
Ending this list of pros and cons is a feature that we were expecting from a mid-end device such as the Y7, but unfortunately was nowhere to be found in its features list -- a fingerprint detector .
Evidently, the Huawei Y7 isn't a jack of all trades. But that doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing, as this allows it to focus more on features that may be more important for certain types of users. It's not for the performance-conscious, but its selfie camera and respectable battery offers enough meat to attract a specific sliver of the Android market.
