Given that the Y series always included entry-level devices, it was hard to expect beautiful aesthetics from Huawei Y9 (2019). But this time it is the opposite: the Chinese company launched a very impressive device which comes with a glass back and even a gradient color variant. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro did not change its aesthetics and materials compared to the Note 5, while Realme 2 Pro is beautiful but it has a plastic design. So Huawei Y9 (2019) wins.
Always told you that if you want a mid-range phone, you have to face the fact that displays will not offer you the best viewing quality in the market. And that is the same with these devices which come with a classic IPS display which is nothing special in terms of viewing quality. So I would pick the Huawei Y9 just because it offers a bigger size which improves the usability on a device like this, especially for advanced users.
Specs & Software
The gold medal for hardware and performance goes to Oppo Realme 2 Pro as it features the most powerful hardware side. It is equipped with a great Snapdragon 660 chipset by Qualcomm which is paired with up to 8 GB of RAM (8 GB RAM and 182 GB of internal storage in its most expensive variant). Thanks to these components, performances are almost flagship-like in some usage patterns.
Talking about camera, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has definitely the best setup, at least on the paper. It features four cameras, two on the front and two on the back. But note that Realme 2 Pro has a brighter aperture on the rear side, so it should be able to shoot very detailed photos in low light conditions.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Huawei Y9 (2019) have the biggest battery, and they are surely the devices with the longest battery life. Both Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Huawei Y9 have a 4000 mAh unit which is able to last two days on a single charge on the former, according to Xiaomi. Usually, Xiaomi optimizes the battery in a better way on its mid-rangers, so we believe Redmi Note 6 Pro will last more. But we will be able to confirm it only after testing the Huawei Y9.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro carries a price tag of $215 in its base variant, Realme 2 Pro costs $102 and Huawei Y9 (2019)’s price is not known yet. Currently I would pick Oppo Realme 2 Pro due to its better performance, but if Huawei Y9 (2019) will come with the same price I will have to rethink my opinion.
