Which one is better?
Both have super identical performance capacity except for the android version of Samsung Galaxy A01 Core. It’s not a major difference, however, some apps might not run in the old version of Android which the Huawei Y5 Lite has. Although, the Huawei Y5 Lite have higher battery capacity at 3020 mAh compared to Samsung Galaxy A01 Core’s 3000 mAh. Not much difference though 🙂

What to choose?
Retail SRP is the same at PhP3990, but we will choose Samsung Galaxy A01 Core in this comparison, because of the updated Android 10.0 version which will give more versatility on apps download in Google Play Store (we hope).
