Gearing up for the new normal: Why the Huawei Y6p is an apt device to stay updated and connected

Now that almost everything has to be done remotely and virtually -- from buying goods and availing services, to reporting to work, as well as staying connected to loved ones, and being updated with the latest news and happenings -- it’s understandable why most people are looking for an all-around smartphone, one that offers decent and high-end-like performance without breaking the bank.

Enter: Huawei Y6p, the latest offering from Chinese smartphone giant Huawei. Here’s a rundown on why this is a must-have device for the “new normal.”

1. It’s huge on storage.

Since people use smartphones on almost every daily errand, one must have a device that can carry huge files and numerous applications all at the same time. Huawei has since recognized the need for smartphones with generous storage, and this is something found not only on their flagship units but also on entry-level smartphones like the Huawei Y6p.

On top of this, Huawei has equipped the Huawei Y6p with its EROFS super file system, which means that this smartphone can perform smoothly by saving storage space while at the same time ensuring data security and protection.

2. It’s made for longer usage.

Since the beginning of the community quarantine, most people spent more time than usual on their smartphones. Repeatedly charging a device is a bummer, that’s why it’s always important to consider the battery life of a smartphone.

Another feature of the Huawei Y6p that’s usually just found on flagship smartphones is the reverse charging technology that allows Huawey Y6p to share its juice to other smartphones.

3. It’s multimedia-savvy.

Smartphones have become more than just a device for texting and calling. In the digital age, it’s safe to think that a significant number of people are using smartphones more to consume content and entertainment.

The new normal has led people to find new ways to learn, and among this is through videos. The Huawei Y6p is an apt device, may it be for just a casual binge-watching session or for online learning purposes for students.
