Chinese based smartphone markers, Huawei Corp. who recently won the award for ‘Best Smartphone Brand in Africa,’ at the DIAA 2016, are well known for some of their famous smartphone devices including; the P9, P9 Plus and P9 Lite, P8 and P8 Lite, Nexus 6P, Honor Note 8, Honor 8, Honor 7 and so forth, earlier this year in April announced the new Huawei Y3 II and Huawei Y5 II to their Y-series generation of smartphones collections and which were later released in mid-June.

However, the phones were made available in Uganda in July, during an exhibition held at the 5th Daily Monitor Thought Leaders Forum, which was run under the theme ‘Digital Footprints, Telling Your Story.’

During the unveiling on the two smartphones, Jean Baguma who is the Marketing Manager at Huawei Device Uganda commented that the, the company continues to develop innovations, advanced technology, outstanding features and strong functionality based on customer needs with an aim of enhancing their experiences and creating maximum value on every single device.

The company was pleased to announce the launch of two entry-level smartphones that are primarily meant for that first-time smartphone owner, or that person that is upgrading from a feature phone to a smartphone and as well are meant for that person on a budget but would like a quick.

First Impression:
Just like Baguma stated, both smartphones are good for first-time smartphone owners, or that person that is upgrading from a feature phone since it’s much easier to use.

One other thing is that both smartphones support 4G networks, which is the current generation used and the obvious benefit of having a 4G is that it has a faster data connection.

Conclusion:
Explained by Baguma; Marketing Manager at Huawei Device Uganda both smartphones are affordable and available countrywide at all Huawei affiliated dealer shops and distributors, with retail prices ranging from 240,000 to 260,000 UGX for the Huawei Y3 II and 330,000 to 360,000 UGX for the Y5 II.

So i guess you can go grab yourself one of these or both of them and ‘Make it Possible’.

    Thanks Nathan Ernest Olupot for the article

    But here’s what I have to say, I have the Y5 II and I love it, but the only problem I have with it is that the battery is drained so quick, yet I don’t over use the phone. I went and changed most of the settings (like removing all the apps that run in the background, I even put the light to auto mode……) to reduce my battery drain but it seems it all does not work.

    What should I do to solve this problem, admin?
