Huawei Y6 Prime (2019) Review in 2020
The Huawei Y6 Prime (2019) is a good budget smartphone in 2020 if you can do away with it having a 720p panel and a micro USB port. However, Huawei Y6 Prime (2019) now has plenty of competitors in the budget market now in 2020 that offer better specs than it even at a lower price. I will suggest you go for a newer budget smartphone in 2020 that has better specs instead of the Huawei Y6 Prime (2019).
