Which is a better buy between the Realme 3 and Huawei Y6 (2019)?
Both budget phones in comparison feature exciting looks. The Realme 3 has a loud yet beautiful gradient finish on the back while the Huawei Y6 (2019) features a leather backing for its Brown variant.
Moving up front, everything stays the same along with their teardrop notches. The same goes for the IPS LCD panels and 720p+ resolution.
When it comes to performance, the Realme 3 leads by a mile with its Helio P60 as opposed to the quad-core MT6761 of the Y6 2019. Sticking to its true budget form, Huawei’s phone only has 2GB of RAM to use along with its 32GB of expandable storage.
The camera also favors Realme 3 with 13MP + 2MP main setup and a 13MP selfie sensor compared to the single 13MP main and 8MP selfie camera of the Y6 2019.
Realme 3 continues to dominate in the battery department with a hefty 4230mAh battery with 10W fast charging. However, both phones come with micro USB ports. On the bright side, the audio jack stays to exist.
Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 can be had for Php6,990 giving us a basis for the Y6 2019 to arrive at Php4,990. While Realme 3 is expected to retail for Php5,990. It’s a no contest here, Realme 3 wins. But that Brown leather variant looks enticing amongst the saturated gradient-finish phones on the market.
