Huawei Y9 2019 Vs Tecno Camon X Pro

If you are looking for a smartphone in the Ksh 25,000 price range, you have probably looked at the new Huawei Y9 2019, Tecno Camon X Pro just to name a few. Both these are 2018 smartphones and thought I should list down their specifications just to compare the two and help you decide on the one to go with.

The Huawei Y9 2019 is available on Jumia for Ksh 24,990 while the Tecno Camon X Pro is available from Ksh 23,500. These are mid-range prices in my opinion and even though they are a bit high for a market like Kenya but there are those who may not look at them that way. There are people who want smartphones with decent specifications and the Huawei Y9 2019 and Camon X Pro are some of the devices that they are attracted to.

Below is a comparison between the Huawei Y9 2019 and the Tecno Camon X Pro.

As you can see from the specifications above, the Tecno Camon X Pro and the Huawei Y9 2019 are all about the camera. This has been the trend with most manufacturers this year and these two are clearly part of that trend. Smartphone users demand the best camera technology and manufacturers are working hard to offer that.

As for which one of the two you should choose, it is all up to you depending on the specifications you want. I have used both phones and the Huawei Y9 2019 does it for me. It has a modern design and build, offers better performance, bigger battery, and a better display. The Camon X Pro on the other hand has a better selfie camera, if you are into selfies and want the best of the best, the Camon X Pro should be your choice. In the end, both phones offer value for money and you will not go wrong with either one.
