Tech Lass's Verdict:

One can only appreciate the Huawei Y3 2017 specs by comparing it with that of other low end devices. Its battery capacity is higher than that of some midrange devices, its operating system better, likewise its hardware specs. 

Since it has better features, it might not be one of the most cheapest low end android devices out there. Huawei is yet to reveal the price of Huawei Y3 2017, hence a conclusion made now would be bias.
