When it comes to the quick-paced lives of millennials, not many devices can keep up. From needing to fit into a budget lifestyle, multitask, keep up to speed and have tons of memory to store the moments along the way – the Huawei Y7p might just be the millennial of smartphones.

Here are 5 ways this sleek new phone on the market puts the Y in Gen Y:

Capturing adventure and getting value for money

Millennials are known to prefer and value experiences over material objects. They’re more likely to opt for travel and outdoor adventures – things that make them feel they’re getting value for their money.

The Y7p is the same, with an enviable retail price of under R5000 while boasting a triple AI camera that is sure to highlight whatever it captures along the way, this phone puts plenty of value in its price and soaks in any experience.

Beyond the sunset

The day for Gen Y doesn’t end with a final sunset pic as you’ll find the high energy generation making their way to nighttime and evening events that range from cafes to art exhibits to music festivals and more – sticking true to living for experiences as Forbes explained. The Y7p can keep up with its quick-charging 4000 mAh battery that promises to last for 22 hours of video playback, 111 hours for music playing or 20 hours of web surfing and claims you can even leave the power bank behind. Additionally, the Y7p’s crisp night mode on the camera allows you to capture every moment during your night adventures too.

Memories that last

When it comes to valuing experience over temporary objects, millennials love to collect memories of their experiences whether it’s through envy-inducing Instagram collections of their highlights or a series of inspiring and immersive travel vlogs. With all the crisp and vibrant pictures capturing every moment, you might worry about storage space. The Y7p, however, aims to hold onto them all with its vast range of memory options that start at 4GB and go to 64GB and is extendable to 512GB of storage.

Synthesised and synchronised

Forbes adds that millennials are a very tech-savvy generation as they were born into the era of the rise of internet culture and smartphone technology and rely on tech to manage their busy lives. Huawei’s Y7p is designed to offer a seamless experience for the tech-reliant user. With its built-in Intelligent System Scheduling and Smart Memory Engine, the phone gives you a smooth experience as you multitask across different apps and planners and maintains that out of the box experience feeling.

For quick and convenient accessibility, the Y7p also comes with a fingerprint scanner on its back allowing its user to quickly unlock and plug into their synthesised world and get to business seamlessly.

Rule Breaker

There’s no doubting the rule-breaking tendency of Gen Y. From questioning the trails tread ahead of them by former generations and having broader access to the events happening around the world at their digital fingertips, millennials are always shaking things up and striving for sustainable, conscious, and ethical solutions to issues.

Much like Gen Y, the Huawei Y7p breaks the mould of androids linked to the Play Store and google and fully functions on the new and unique Huawei ecosystem including its new HUAWEI AppGallery.

If there was ever a smartphone to truly and authentically represent millennials, the Y7p is quite the dead ringer all at a budget-friendly price.
