Looks like these three devices have a lot in common and are equal in storage offerings, and camera resolutions. All have dedicated microSD card slots, and connectivity features like 4G LTE, Dual-SIM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and microUSB.
For those who are looking for a large display with 18:9 aspect ratio and Android 8 Oreo out of the box, the Huawei Y6 (2018) is the best choice.
However, for those who want a newer and more powerful chipset, the OPPO A71 (2018) takes the cake. It’s also the slimmest and lightest device among the three.
Trailing behind is the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro but the removable battery has an advantage over the non-removable ones. It may also be the most affordable until Huawei reveals the price for the Huawei Y6 (2018).
