If you are familiar with the Huawei Nova 2i, the Huawei Y9 2018 is not something new for you. Like the Nova 2i, this one packs industry’s top features like a bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio, quad cameras, an FHD+ screen, etc. The Y9 2018 looks sleek and stylish with the huge 5.93-inch screen wrapped around an aluminum alloy body with an 18:9 aspect ratio. At the back, you will see a dual horizontal camera set up along with an LED flash and a fingerprint scanner just below it. Everything looks good and in place. The phone is comfortable to hold and looks good on hands.
However, one slight concern is that the device is slippery and tends to fall out of hands. It is in such instances that I have felt a need for display protection and as the Y9 provides none, you have to be very careful using it.
