Physical Attributes

Measuring 164.3 x 75.8 x 8.9 mm and weighing 188g, the phone typifies Huawei’s mid-range smartphones. The ergonomic design, curved edges, water-drop display and aesthetics depict the elegance, simplicity and class of the Huawei brand. The body is made of a glass front, plastic back pane and body frame. It feels good and solid in the hand, and cosy when put away inside the pocket after use thus portable, usable and comfortable to handle with one hand.

Camera set-up

The front camera is basic, consisting of a single, 5MP (wide) camera, which enables objects nearby to look larger and objects far away to look smaller.  The selfie camera also captures 1080p@30fps videos. The main camera is modest and decent on the Nova Y61. The triple 50MP + 2MP + 2MP complement each other to provide a good balance for brightness, perspective and image sizing hence producing awesome photo shots.

Video recording is also considerably decent, considering you will make use of 108op videos that are way better than 720p on basic phones.
