MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is a solid smartphone for the price. What you might find odd is the lack of fast battery charging, especially when you consider the price tag. This means that topping up your phone will be as slow as it can be.

  1. A phone selling for ₦83k+ and yet, has no NFC, no infrared, no reverse charging, no Corning Gorilla Glass, and probably, no OTG feature. Too many ‘NOs’. It seems the major unique selling point is the Pop-up camera. A Samsung or Xiaomi phone of this price tag would be a lot better. I’m not totalling discrediting this device, it’s just that I expected more from it than it carries.

  2. Covenant,

    Finally, someone echoses my sentiments about the Y9 Prime 2019. I have watched as people have danced around the phone and wondered if I was missing something. It doesn’t even have quick charging listed in its specs sheet!! For an N83,000 smartphone, it looks like a rip-off.
