Huawei GR5 2017 Hands On Review


Huawei GR5 2017 is a most anticipated android smartphone in the current market of Bangladesh right now. It has got the records amount of pre-booking request from the users in Bangladesh. Huawei is slowly and steadily enhancing its popularity in Bangladesh and smartphones like GR5 2017 will get more attentions. Huawei GR5 2017 has just released on the market and it’s very early to review this phone. I am very much pleased with this phone after using couple of days. So check out my review or experience with GR5 (2017).

Design and Display

Huawei GR5 2017

Huawei GR5 2017 comes with metal body and 2.5D curved design that makes it more pleasant to watch. It is well crafted and uses fine sandblasting process, makes this a true delight to hold. This phone is very sleek and thin and you will feel comfort to carry it. Two phone comes with three colors, Gold, silver and Grey. You may not like the front color with white (back in Gold), it may looks ugly to you. Although, i like the front white color and back with gold color.

The 5.5-inch display at Full HD (1080p) resolutions gives bright screen and i felt very good while touching the screen. Huawei didn’t confirm anything about its screen protection but i think it would be gorilla glass 3.


Huawei GR5 2017

I totally impress with the performance of the Huawei GR5 (2017). It performs under Kirin 655, Octa-Core (4×2.1GHz+4×1.7GHz) processor along with fast 3GB RAM. It performs faster than Oppo F1s and Samsung galaxy J7 prime, both has similar 3GB RAM.

Android OS and EMUI

Huawei GR5 2017 runs with Android OS 6.0 Marshmallow and EMUI 4.0. In the 2017, we will get upcoming Android OS Nougat 7.0, so user of GR5 (2017) must want to update that versions.


It gives you 32GB ROM, in which 24 GB is available for use. The Samsung galaxy J7 Prime will give you only 16GB ROM, which priced more than GR5(2017). So i think 32GB ROM is more than enough for a mid-ranged phone, if not then adding a microSD card is a option that supports up to 128GB.


Huawei GR5 2017 camera

If you love photography then GR5(2017) is the best camera phone for you. You can get the taste of DSLR cameras with the Dual back cameras. It has 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual back camera. It gives you more details in your photo and makes your image sharper and brighter. The 12 Megapixel will capture the main object and another 2 Megapixel captures around the object. If you like to use blur around your photo object then it gives you that features.

Moreover, the 8-megapixel selfie camera isn’t bad either. You can use this phone for perfect and dynamic selfies. You can give various effects on your photo and makes it more beautiful.

Fingerprint Sensors

It has a very fast Fingerprint sensor on the back, just underneath the rear cameras. You can unlock phone, lock app, capture photo with your Fingerprint. It takes very less than seconds to response and identifies your fingers.


Huawei GR5 (2017) comes with 3340 mAh Li-Polymer battery. I have used this phone for 24 hours with full charge, in that time i browse internet, watch movies on YouTube, play games also capturing videos. So my phone was running almost 24 hours and still i had 30 percent charge left. It also takes reasonably lower time to get full charge.


Huawei GR5 (2017) has 4G network, but in Bangladesh 4G network isn’t available. So i have used this phone on 3G network and it was good experience.
This phone doesn’t support OTG, so it will be disappointing for the OTG fan.



Huawei GR5 2017 price in Bangladesh is BDT 21900. I personally think, if you have this budget then you should go with GR5 (2017). Especially, if you want a better camera and fast performance on your phone then GR5 2017 is my choice.
