Huawei Gr5 2017

HWM (Philippines) - - Test -

Huawei’s GR5 2017 is among the phones in this shootout that flaunt a rosy golden metal­lic uni­body chas­sis, along with the en­tries from Moto, OPPO, and Vivo. Like the Zen­fone 3 Max, the GR5 2017 also car­ries a 5.5-inch IPS LCD touch­screen with Full HD (1920 x 1080p) res­o­lu­tion. Some of the tech­nolo­gies that Huawei in­tro­duced to its screen in­clude dy­namic con­trast ad­just­ment, pixel-by-pixel cor­rec­tion, adap­tive back­light con­trol, and eye com­fort mode that helps in re­duc­ing eye fa­tigue.

pow­ered by a Hisil­i­con Kirin 655 octa-core chip with MALI-T830MP2 GPU, the GR5 2017 is one of the fastest smart­phones in the lot: four cores of the pro­ces­sor are clocked at 2.1GHZ, while the other four cores run at 1.7GHZ. With that, the GR5 2017 got the high­est scores in our bench­marks. On the soft­ware side of things, the phone runs on An­droid 6.0 Marsh­mal­low with Huawei’s very own EMUI 4.1 en­hance­ment.

The high­light fea­ture of the GR5 2017 is its cam­era and, as a mat­ter of fact, Huawei gave at­ten­tion to it by equip­ping the phone with a dual rear cam­era system. The system con­sists of a 12-me­gapixel cam­era with a mono­chrome lens and a 2-me­gapixel cam­era backed by a Sony IMX386 im­age sen­sor. Huawei’s pur­pose of putting a dual rear cam­era system is to make the GR5 2017 pro­duce photos with a dy­namic depth of field and wide an­gle shots with a more ap­par­ent bokeh ef­fect. Sim­i­lar to the many phones in this shootout, the GR5 2017 also car­ries an 8-me­gapixel front-fac­ing cam­era with a 4P lens ar­ray and a 78-de­gree wide an­gle vis­ual range. No­table fea­tures of the front cam­era in­clude modes like 10-level beau­ti­fi­ca­tion, auto makeup, and panoramic selfie. Huawei launched the GR5 2017 with a vari­ant that comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, but the ver­sion with 3GB RAM and 32GB in­ter­nal stor­age is the one that is avail­able here in the Philip­pines. In terms of bat­tery, the GR5 2017 is packed with a 3340mah bat­tery, of­fer­ing the sec­ond long­est stamina after the Zen­fone 3 Max.


the only phone that has a dual rear cam­era system in this shootout. Front-fac­ing cam­era needs im­prove­ment.
