4. Huawei Y7P

Buy Huawei Y7 Prime in Kenya

This phone is different.

Not the pretty much about the model  nor the usual physical difference. But a rare difference for smartphones powered by the android.

Oh seriously. Does Huawei Y7P use android?

Absolutely yes. Still, the company hasn’t migrated their O.S from android to Harmony O.S yet. So Huawei still has an android.

The difference is here. It doesn’t have the G-APPS with the likes of Google Playstore or Gmail APP. In Huawei Y7P the Playstore has been completely replaced by something they call the Huawei App Gallery.

The Huawei App Gallery is pretty much functional as the Playstore. Since every APP you would think of in Playstore you will find it on the Huawei App Gallery.
