Huawei Y9a Review

Huawei Y9a is a smartphone that was introduced to the world during the IFA 2020 exhibition. It is an improved version of another model already known on the market - Huawei Enjoy 20 Plus, and has everything you need to reap success among consumers.


In appearance, the Huawei Y9a has taken some features of the flagship Mate 30. Its design features nice shapes that make the device comfortable to use. Its dimensions are 163.5 x 76.5 x 8.95 mm - ie. it is neither too big nor too small. It weighs less than 200 grams. On the market you will find Huawei Y9a in a case in several color solutions - silver, pink and black.

A fingerprint scanner is placed on one side of the case, which handles its tasks quickly and accurately. You can rely on it to keep your personal information away from unfriendly eyes.


The nice look of the Huawei Y9a is complemented by a quality 6.63-inch Full HD+ display (2400 x 1080) based on IPS matrix. It occupies 84.8% of the surface of the front of the smartphone, which is an average of modern standards. The manufacturer has not offered support for a refresh rate of 90 Hz on the screen. The pixel density per inch is 397.

Huawei Y9a will enchant you with a satisfactorily large screen on which you can view whatever content you want. The colors are as natural as possible, and the brightness is enough to read text even on a sunny day.


This Huawei model is based on the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset in combination with 6 or 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128 GB of internal UFS 2.1 storage. If necessary, you can expand the storage with an SD memory card. The performance of the Huawei Y9a is satisfactory. You can easily use several applications at the same time.

Huawei Y9a runs Android 10 under EMUI 10.1. Several sensors are supported - accelerometer, compass, side fingerprint sensor and more.

At the ports we see that the device supports 4G LTE, dual-band WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port.


Huawei Y9a is a smartphone that is equipped with a quality 16-megapixel front camera. If you like to take selfies, you will definitely like it a lot. On the back panel you will notice a block of cameras, which is round in shape. In all likelihood, the manufacturer has transferred this design from Huawei Mate 30 Pro, but you should keep in mind that the sensors are not the same.

The main camera of Huawei Y9a is wide-angle with 64 MP and aperture f / 1.8. It is complemented by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 120 degrees and an aperture of f / 2.4, a 2-megapixel depth sensor and another 2-megapixel lens, which is tasked with taking macro photos. For better photos, Huawei has provided an LED flash and various shooting modes, including HDR, panorama and more.

For comparison, in the Huawei Enjoy 20 Plus model, the company offers a triple rear camera that combines modules with 48 MP, 8 MP and 2 MP.

With the Huawei Y9a's cameras you can shoot 4K videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second. For this class of smartphones, the quality of the videos is satisfactory.

Autonomous work

Huawei Y9a is a modern model that has a large battery capacity. The good news is that the company has provided fast charging technology, depending on the distribution market, it is 40 watts or 22.5 watts. The battery is non-removable and Li-Po. Provides standard autonomous operation, and in case of more serious load you will have to recharge within the same day.


A definite disadvantage of Huawei Y9a is the absence of Google Play Services. The company is trying in every way to compensate for this lack, including creating its own app store. From another angle, for those of you who are not excited about this option, the smartphone is a bargain. It offers a large enough screen on which you can watch videos, view photos and read news and other content. In addition, it is compact in size, you can easily control it with one hand and at the same time you get an interesting set of cameras.
