The low-end smartphone comes with an interesting feature, that Huawei calls Easy Key. It’s basically a dedicated hardware button on the left side of the device, that can be configured to do a number of useful functions, like activating a favorite application, launch the main camera or flashlight, depending on how you tap it: double tap, single press, double tap and hold, etc.
