Huawei launched one of its newest smartphone, Huawei Y9 Prime 2019. Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 features a unique dividing line that makes this design standout from the rest. On the smooth back, the special silk texture shimmers under the light and you can see the fine details clearly. It comes with an attractive design, a considerable sweet display, and that trendy pop-up front camera mechanism.

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: Design and Construction
Up front, Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has a full-screen display. Very slim bezels decorate the sides and the top of the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019, and while there’s still a little bit of chin, it isn’t that distracting. The chin is also there to pretty much ensure that the user’s fingers still have a bit of space to swipe up from. The notch-less full-screen display is made possible thanks to Huawie Y9 Prime’s pop-up front camera mechanism.
You will see the triple-camera setup and the fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone. The smartphone employs a two-tone colorway, with the design slightly reminiscent of the Pixel’s design. While the back of the phone is made of plastic, it gives off a glass-like look and feel upon the first touch. The polycarbonate material also allows the phone to feel sturdy and premium when you hold.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has power button and the volume button at the right side. As the phone is quite large, you might need to stretch your thumb a little to reach the buttons, especially if you have small hands. Despite that, they’re both clicky and tactile. The left side of the phone doesn’t have is bare without any buttons or the like. At the top, next to the pop-up camera mechanism, one can find the hybrid dual SIM card tray and the noise-canceling mic.
Last but not least, there’s the 3.5mm audio jack, a USB-C port, a noise-canceling mic for regular calls, and the single-downward firing speaker, all located at the bottom of the phone.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: Display and Multimedia
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 comes with a 6.59-inch big FHD+ LTPS LCD display, with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. Slapping a screen protector on the phone would be ideal as the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 does not come with any display protection. The huge display is incredible when it comes to consuming media. You do get an almost-full screen experience as there are no thick bezels nor a notch to obstruct the view; the viewing angles are great as well.
When it comes to the speaker’s performance, the audio quality is a disappointment. The volume needs to be improved as it doesn’t get loud enough to fill an entire room, even at maximum volume. The lows aren’t exactly present with the volume turned up, resulting in a tinny sound.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: OS, UI, and Apps
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9 skinned on top runs as operating system. EMUI has a pretty straightforward UI, with tips popping up here and there if ever you’re a first-time user. A standard home screen will greet you out of the box, with the app icons arranged in different screens. This can be modified into a drawer-style arrangement if you want to. For navigation, you can also change it up to a gesture-based instead of the default three-button navigation.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has 128GB of storage, with about 110GB of it usable. The usual Google apps come with the phone out of the box, as well as third-party apps like Facebook, Netflix, and Camera360. Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 also has a Party mode, a SIM Toolkit, HiCare, Health, FM Radio, Storage Cleaner, and the Huawei AppGallery.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: Camera
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has a 16MP of front camera as pop-up mechanism, while on a triple camera setup composed of the 16MP main + 8MP ultrawide + 2MP depth shooters sit on the back of the phone. If you use the standard photo mode while clicking selfie, the quality of the images is average enough to post on social media. As for portrait selfies, the subject-background separation is rather weak. The edges of the subject are slightly smudged and blurry as well, which shouldn’t be the case in portrait selfies.
The quality of images is pretty decent in the standard photo mode when it comes to rear cameras. There is contrast, sharpness for details can be seen as well. Portrait-mode with the rear cameras, again there’s the lack of a subject-background separation. Similar to the selfies, the edges of the subject are smudged and blurry as well. Huawei Y9 Prime’s camera has a Night Mode also, and it’s pretty good when compared to taking low-light shots with just the standard photo mode. In Night Mode, the images take on a brighter tone and get a tinge of color as well.
For video, Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 can shoot up to 1080p at 30fps. Video quality is humble, especially in natural light.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: Performance and Benchmarks
Hisilicon Kirin 710F powers up the Y9 Prime, coupled with Mali-G51 MP4 GPU and 4GB of RAM. As always, we ran the smartphone through a couple of benchmarks, and here are the results:
- AnTuTu – 131,039
- GeekBench – 1,524 (Single-core), 5,442 (Multi-core)
- PCMark – 8,597 (Work 2.0)
- 3DMark – 867 (SSE – OpenGL)
- AndroBench – 286.48 MB/s (Read), 202.69 MB/s (Write)
Performance-wise, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is pretty capable of multi-tasking, productivity, and gaming. We found that, full and large screen to be a big help when it comes to doing tasks such as reading documents, writing, jotting notes, and the like. Gaming-wise, we played call of duty, Asphalt, and PUBG on it. The games were playable, but do note that we were either at the lowest or at the medium setting to be able to play them.
For biometrics, the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It registered fingerprints pretty quick. Even with the quick registration, unlocking the device took about a second.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: Connectivity and Battery Life
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 has the usual connectivity features like LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the like. Pinning locations and such on the google map was also accurate. AR games are possible to play with this phone as it has a Gyroscope sensor.
For battery, the phone is equipped with a 4,000mAh battery. PC Mark’s battery test gave the Huawei Y9 Prime a total of 16 hours and 15 minutes. In our standard video loop test (50% brightness, 50% volume, airplane mode, headphones plugged in), the Y9 Prime ran for about 18 hours and 53 minutes.
Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 Review: Conclusion
The sizeable, unobstructed display is Huawei Y9 Prime 2019’s most significant selling point. Apart from that, you also get a great battery life, an attractive-looking smartphone, EMUI 9, and a modest performance.
Although, if you’re looking for a phone with better selfie qualities, more power for gaming, better biometrics options, or a phone with a lesser price tag, you might want to reconsider the purchasing Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 and check out other devices instead.
What we liked:
- Large, unobstructed display
- Great battery life
- Attractive design
- Modest performance
What we didn’t:
- Selfie camera quality
