Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Hands-On and First Impressions

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is coming to the Philippines soon and we already got the units for hands-on and also the review of the smartphone. The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is really an interesting smartphone due to its features such as the full-screen display and also the pop-up camera of the smartphone. There’s a triple lens camera too with a 16MP main camera with 8MP ultra-wide angle camera and a 2MP depth sensor and the main feature of this smartphone — the 16MP auto pop-up selfie camera.

The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a big smartphone. We got here a 6.59-inch Full HD Display with no notch which is really immersive when watching videos or just playing games. It’s actually a big advantage as the smartphone doesn’t have any notch or holes that block my view.

The smartphone also features a plastic build but it does look like glass from afar and then there’s the unique dividing line in the smartphone with a texture shimmering at the back just below the fingerprint scanner. It’s a cool look on the smartphone that adds beauty to it. Speaking of the back of the smartphone, the smartphone does pack a curved back which helps in the ergonomics and grip to the smartphone. However, I will still suggest that you use the included case in the box.

Thankfully, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is now utilizing a USB-C port which is getting common on smartphones these days. Unfortunately, the smartphone doesn’t support fast-charging so you’re stuck with the included 10W charger out of the box. But hey, at least there’s a headphone jack in the smartphone.

Yep, the smartphone might pack a fingerprint scanner at the back, however, the smartphone doesn’t have a face unlock. Maybe because Huawei wants you to lessen the use of its front-facing camera or because of the selfie camera is too slow to fully pop-up.

Again, the smartphone doesn’t pack a notch and it’s beautiful to look at just like other smartphones with no notch. The display of the smartphone is just fine and I have no qualms about it and I can freely use it outside under direct sunlight without problems at all.

The triple lens rear camera of the smartphone isn’t the best in its class however, I applaud that the smartphone does have a wide-angle lens. Most of my shots at well-lit conditions are okay. However, sometimes, the photos get blown out and it’s a little bit overexposed. Check out the shots that I took using the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019.

Overall, it’s nice to see that we have smartphones like this one, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019. The full-screen display is a refreshing take from Huawei and it’s really immersive for watching videos and gaming. Yep, there’s a wide-angle lens on the smartphone which I like but I was not expecting a really great performance with it considering that this smartphone belongs in the Y-series.

As of this posting, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 doesn’t have a full SRP yet but knowing Huawei, they’re doing a pretty good job in pricing their smartphones. Check out our unboxing and hands-on video of the smartphone below:
