The Huawei GR5 2017 features dual-lens cameras but with a far cheaper price tag and is touted as the most affordable smartphone. It has a top notch build but Huawei made this one way more reasonable priced than its flagship phones. The smartphone comes with a slim metal design as well as a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920x1080p) display with 2.5D curved glass which gives users a great viewing experience. The phone dons a matte finish at the back which makes it difficult for the phone to slip off the hands and makes up for an easy one-handed operation.

The Huawei GR5 2017 is operated by an refreshed Kirin 655 chipset with an octa-core processor and i5 co-processor. The processor is supported by 3GB of RAM and GPU Mali-T830 MP2 which ensures smooth multitasking and lagfree gaming. There is also 32GB of built in storage and supports up to 128GB via microSD card and in addition an unobtrusive 3,340mAh battery with intelligent power-saving technology which is touted as capable of lasting up to 1.5 days of heavy usage. There are three power saving modes available to help minimize the battery drain.

The dual camera setup installed in the GR5 2017 includes a 12MP main lens and a 2MP secondary lens which gives cool Bokeh effect. There’s likewise a 0.3 seconds autofocus speed and a Pro Photo mode for those who prefer more advanced setting adjustments. In addition, the smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow from the get go and packs a rear mounted fingerprint sensor which unlocks the device in just 0.03 seconds and can function properly even with wet hands. The phone comes in Gold, Silver, and Gray color variants. Coming to the price, the Huawei GR5 2017 carries a price tag of Rs.28,900 and is available at Electro.
