Inside the box
For a $134 smartphone Huawei clearly made some tradeoffs with the packaging. It’s quite simple and includes only the bare minimum:
a USB cable
a wall charger
a set of earphones
a pin for the SIM-card tray
a plastic film screen protector
Huawei Y6 Prime 2019 is lightweight which makes it really nice to use as it fits well in the hand. The shape is comfortable with rounded corners; you can use the smartphone with no problem as the controls are located in the right places. The Huawei Y6 Prime 2019 has a 6.09 inches IPS display with 720 x 1560 px resolution + HUAWEI Dewdrop display (a teardrop-style notch).
The Y6 Prime 2019 runs on Android OS v9.0 (Pie) out of the box, customized by Huawei with the EMUI 9.0. It comes with a Li-Po 3020 mAh, non-removable battery.
At the phones bottom, we have a single USB-C port to handle charging, which is sandwiched between the main microphone and the bottom loudspeaker; while the top houses the headphone jack and noise cancellation mic.
The sim card and microSD card slot is positioned on the left side of the screen whilst the volume and power buttons are on the right side.
Also at the back, you’ll see the single 13MP primary camera with flash and a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back of the phone as well.
