Huawei Uganda launches the budget Huawei Y3II and Y5II. Here are the specs, price and where to buy

Huawei Y3 II & Huawei Y5 II

Huawei Uganda a week ago launched two new budget devices from its Y-series generation of smartphones; Huawei Y3II and the Y5II. Both devices are targeting the first-time smartphone owner, or that person that is upgrading from a feature phone to a smartphone and that person on a budget who would like a quick replacement for a phone.

The 2 devices were announced in April this year and were available to buy by June 2016. Both phones are Dual SIM with LTE/3G models and some good specs for entry level devices. The Y5II LTE model has different specs from the 3G model. The 4G model has 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM while the 3G model has half of that. The rest of the specs are the same.

We have observed that Huawei has made a huge improvement in its entry level offerings that have at least 1GB of RAM. We found it perplexing that they were still releasing devices with 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM at prices for mid range devices. We have not reviewed these two devices yet but they have been praised for awesome features at a pocket friendly price. Here are the specs of both devices.
