Huawei GR5 phone: Full, in-depth review
Dual-camera high-impact photos in a fast, low-end Android smartphone (aka Honor 6X and Mate 9 Lite)
A 2,900mAh battery is included and generally this would last for a full day. However, heavy camera usage (with aperture effects and the subsequent processing) could reduce this considerably.
If you want the ability for high-end photography on a phone but can’t run to the more-expensive models, then this is a great choice. Even if you don’t use the camera it’s a great phone at just $400. Different variants are available in different markets (more and less expensive models with 4GB and 2GB RAM) but this 3GB model makes for a good sweet spot.
There were times where the phone felt a bit sluggish, but it was hard to put our finger on when. It’s directly up against the Moto G5 Plus which is a great, all-round phone, but this gets the nod thanks to the camera.
It’s a great value choice.
