The back cover has a texture – for some reason Huawei decided to make it similar to the skin. A very ambiguous decision, but we don’t see any sense. The user will use silicone protective case anyway.

The control buttons are located on the right side. There are no surprises.

Huawei has always had problems with pricing. New phone Y6 Pro 2019 is no exception. After all, the new smartphone is equipped with MediaTek processor, which is also used in Redmi 6A. Xiaomi smartphone costs much less than the hero of our review.
