Huawei y9 prime 2019 Review
The back and frame of the Y9 prime 2019 are made from a polycarbonate material also known as glasstic.It has a two tone color that may not be visible on camera.
It is quite heavy, yes heavier and thicker than the old y9 2019. The biggest screen and motorized parts are likely responsible for the extra weight, the pop up camera does retract automatically in advance of accidents drops, it does look a bit more premium than the y9 2019 because of that triple camera setup on the back and of course the total absence of a notch.
This comes in 4gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of storage. It ships with Android nine pie and emotion ui 9.0 point one slapped on top of it. It gets all the same settings as the Y9 2019 which has now been updated to Android pie.
You get digital balance which sort of helps you moderate your social media usage daily, about the performance. This uses huawei’s hisilicon Kirin 710f CPU clocked at 2.2 gigahertz, from what we already know about the kirin 710, it runs really smoothly and as far as midrange chips go, it is great for gaming and very battery efficient.
The Y9 2019 was a very long lasting smartphone but this one is optimized to last even longer, easily a two day battery life. It takes about two hours and 40 minutes for a full charge.
I tested the fingerprint sensor, though it is fairly fast, it is not quite as fast as the y9 2019, there is no face unlock on this guy. I put the triple AI camera to test and here is some of the photos taken by Eric.
The premium feature of the Huawei y9 prime 2019 which everyone should be looking out for is that full HD plus display devoid of notches or punch holes. And it’s all thanks to that selfie camera implementation.
However, this comes at the expense of a notification LED. It’s very ideal for people with big hands who consume media primarily on their phone.
The Huawei y9 prime 2019 is priced at N83,900 in Nigeria which converts to 230 US dollars. And I don’t think there’s a rival in the mid range phablets category but you can correct me if I’m wrong in the comments.
You can pre-order yours at any major retail store in Nigeria. If you want me to compare this smartphone with any other smartphone , do leave me your comments down below.
