Which is a better buy between the Huawei Y9 (2019) and Vivo Y95?
Nothing much can be said from the design standpoint as they both feature glass and aluminum materials with gradient hue. Instead, the display should be the focal point as the Huawei Y9 (2019) sports a sharper 1080p display as opposed to the 720p of the Vivo Y95.
Though the resolution is at 720p, expect better runtime due to lower pixels to display and very, very slightly higher 4030mAh of the Y95.
Moreover, the Snapdragon 439 only features six low-power cores and two high-power cores prolonging the battery a bit more for the Vivo handset. Should you wish for better raw performance for games, the Kirin 710 of Huawei is the better choice here.
Both main cameras sport the main sensor with a depth sensor. While the front cameras will differ — whether you like the 13MP + 2MP of Y9 (2019) for better self-portrait shots or the single 20MP selfie sensor of the Y95 for a much crisper image.
Huawei Y9 (2019) starts at Php12,990 while Vivo Y95 retails at Php13,990. Unless you have a good reason to get the Vivo Y95, you’re better off with the Huawei Y9 (2019).
