The selling price is as enticing as we’d expect from Huawei’s budget line: $199 gets you a choice of gray, silver, and gold and features we typically see on more expensive phones. Highlights include the fingerprint reader, a metallic construction, a nice 5.5-inch Full HD screen, a Snapdragon 616 processor, and a 13MP camera.
