This gives you a smartphone that has a large screen without the phone being unnecessarily large. However, am not really a fan of having a logo on both the front (below the display) and centrally at the back.

From a mid-range smartphone you don’t expect more than what you have on the Huawei Y9 (2018). It fits perfectly if you are a fan of large display towering up to 5.93-inch and has a crisp and decent colour representation. Featuring a 2160 X 1080 pixels resolution, you have a 407 ppi pixel density and decent viewing angle.
