Reasons to get the Vivo Y17

  • Great build quality. A small notch is still better than having a pop up camera since moving parts in a phone breaks down in time.
  • Surprisingly decent cameras and great wide angle shots.
  • Better selfies with its 20MP front camera
  • Larger battery, fast charging speeds, great battery life

Reasons to get the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019

  • We love our unit’s Emerald Green color. It does stand out.
  • Sharper and bigger display. You have full HD at 6.59-inch display
  • EMUI on this phone is smoother, apps open faster and rare lags reported.
  • Kirin 710 is more powerful and more tuned for gaming and media consumption.
  • More stable network and WiFi signal. It is one of Huawei’s best features.

Final Thoughts

It is very clear that the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 wins this comparison but don’t cross out the Vivo Y17 just yet. Its battery life is much, much better then the Y9 Prime especially that the Y17 has lower res display. Moving parts on a phone remains a concern to us especially in the long run. On the flip side, Huawei assures its quality.
