In the extremely hot time when US software and component suppliers turned their backs on Huawei, the technology company continued to launch the 2019 Y9 Prime in the world and in Vietnam, even this phone. is running Android 9.
Leaving aside the problems that Huawei faces, we dive into this mid-range phone, because it is the core of what brings a good user experience and quality.
Design: The front removes the back face gauze
Like other mid-range smartphone products, Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 puts on a fake plastic mirror on the back. Very well finished, this back section does not make users feel cheap creaking like other equivalent models. However, the back of the device has absolutely no specific points, still has many similarities with other products on the market, especially the color part is divided into two arrays: 1/3 above the dark color and 2/3 of the lower part is slightly lighter.
This color division on the back makes us remember Google's Pixel product line.
The camera cluster is vertically similar to previous Huawei products. In general, the back of the 2019 Y9 Prime has not had any strong enough points to really show a difference with other products on the market.
Thankfully, the attraction of Y9 Prime 2019 is on the front. Owning a 6.59-inch screen (1080 x 2340 pixel resolution), this is a fairly large number in this price segment, but that's not all. Huawei also knows how to please its customers by eliminating the already-boring design of water droplets for more than a year and instead the screen is completely overflowed.
It can be said that the screen edge of the 2019 Y9 Prime impresses when ensuring a certain degree of thinness, when manipulating, watching movies or playing games on it feels very like.
This smartphone is also equipped with IPS panels, so it has a wider viewing angle, less discolouration at inclined angles. The personal feeling is that the colors show up quite well, not too bold and not pale. But if you feel uncomfortable, inside the Settings section there is also a section for changing the chroma as well as the color temperature as you like.
Interface and practical experience: There are still many Bloatware, navigation swiping is the brightest point worth praising
Thankfully 2019 Y9 Prime still runs Android 9 and works perfectly with Google services. However, the interface still suffers from the inherent disease of Huawei: cumbersome and many garbage applications. Many times I was annoyed when I was working on the main screen, but applications like Hi Sense, Hi Board … something kept showing up asking for permission to use or remove. Strangely, even if you choose to remove it, but sometimes it will still bother you afterwards.
In particular about the gaming ability, Y9 Prime 2019 uses Kirin 710 processor with 4 GB of RAM, so it is not a strong type to handle high-end graphics games. Trying Shadowgun Legends, this complex graphics FPS game has made Y9 Prime exhausted every time there is a lot of transition in the transition. As for PUBG Mobile, the auto is in HD format and for the frame rate at a moderate level, it is a bit laggy in the parachute segments but fortunately when it comes to fighting it is not so low as the frame of Shadowgun Legends.
Similar to Asphalt Legends, the frame rate in the chase has too many effects, but in general the whole race is still at a good level.
In general, with a price of VND 6.5 million, we can hardly ask for a powerful machine to meet today's top titles.
A small feature I like very much on this phone is navigation swipe: you can then swipe up from the bottom of the screen to exit Home; similar swipe and hold to open the active tasks window; Swipe two left and right edges to border the screen to Back. The optimization of such navigation makes the display space more open, especially for those who prefer to use one hand, they will love it.
Besides, the USB-C port is also the highlight of this mid-range phone, when other competitors are still mostly in the old connection port, Huawei has let its products catch up with the more advanced era.
Camera: The quality is just enough, impressive with the lens sticking out
The 16 MP selfie camera f / 2.0 is one of the big points that makes modern, high-end products at this mid-range price. With the mechanism of indenting, it not only helps the screen to be completely overflowed but also helps to stand out more (or can be said to be unique) compared to other products in the same price.
On the back we see up to 3 lenses, however, the camera only has an 8 MP wide camera and is normally 16 MP f / 1.8, the other only serves as a depth-measuring sensor for font removal photos.
The quality of photos taken by Y9 Prime 2019 is also at a sufficient, clear and capturing level right on social networks. When shooting in low light or more rigorous conditions in every detail, this is not the product you need.
Speaking and reviewing also, Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 whether the interface of "old habits do not give up", or the back is not really eye-catching; But at a price of less than VND 6.5 million, you will find it hard to find a product that has an absolute screen overflow and such a modern retractable camera.
Before opening a purse to buy this phone, surely you will have many hesitation for yourself, but if you really like to experience new design technologies with mid-range prices, Y9 Prime 2019 is the choice Choose not better at this time.
