16 Mar 5 tricks in the Huawei Y7 (2019) to get the most out of it
One of the mobile phones presented by Huawei just beginning the year is the Huawei Y7 (2019), a smartphone with a very tight price that wants to take over from a line of phones that has been quite successful in recent years. In the entry range, the Y is a reference, so it is remarkable that the brand continues to update and improve them.
In this case, either thanks to hardware or software improvements, there are several interesting things you can do with the Huawei Y7 (2019), a mobile that hides extra options that can make your life much easier.
The tricks for this mobile have to do for example with security, privacy or battery saving, three of the fundamental pillars of mobile telephony today, especially in the entry range, where any detail can make the difference with respect to the competition.
Activate one-handed mode
The mobiles are growing more and more in screen size, especially thanks to the fact that little by little the space available in the front area is being squeezed out much more.
This Huawei Y7 has a 6.3-inch screen, considerably large. Therefore, if you are going to handle it with one hand, it is recommended that you configure the so-called “One-handed mode”, although here Huawei has baptized it as a mini-screen.
It consists of sliding to one side to reduce the screen size and thus be able to reach all corners of the same with a single hand. You can do it like that.
- Go to Settings
- Enter the Smart Assistance menu
- Access the User Interface section of a hand
- Activate the Mini-Screen View
Save time with facial unlocking
A useful trick of the Huawei Y7 2019 is to set the face lock to automatically unlock the mobile when you look at it. Nothing to slide or touch buttons: you raise and you’re at the desk.
By default, it does not come like this. You have to go to the Security Settings and enter the Facial Unlock menu. There you will see an option called “Unblock directly”, which you must dial.
It is a way to save time when unlocking.
Mute the camera
Virtually all phones come with the shutter sound of the camera activated, although fortunately at this time almost all of them allow to silence it.
The Y7 of 2019, like all Huawei mobiles, lets you do it. It is a good way to take photos in a much more discreet way, without the sound of you when shooting.
You only have to enter the Settings within the camera application and there mark the option that says Silent.
It encrypts the most sensitive files
A mobile phone has a certain level of security, although that does not prevent that if you lose it or it is stolen, the physical holder of the device can access them. If it is a microSD, the thing is easy, but in terms of internal storage, you can at least complicate things.
EMUI incorporates a feature called safe, available in this Huawei Y7 (2019) . It serves to encrypt certain files on your phone and prevent other people without your password from accessing them.
You have to go to Settings> Security and there enter the Safe menu. When you enable it, you will have to select which files you want to enter it.
Less screen resolution, less battery consumption
There is a way to greatly reduce the battery consumption in the Huawei Y7, and it is to give up some pixels on your screen. You can reduce the screen resolution and thus lengthen a little the autonomy of the phone.
It is an option available in Settings> Battery under the name of Intelligent Resolution. Practically you will not notice, although the impact on the battery itself is quite large.
On the other hand, the panel of this Y7 is 720p IPS LCD, so it can not be said to waste energy.
