As Chinese brands strengthen their presence in the market, the mid-range segment has become more competitive than ever. New mobile companies were also able to challenge the industry, as they aggressively challenge top tech giants like Samsung and Apple by dropping powerful phones with reasonable price tags.

For instance, Huawei remains true to its commitment of delivering various devices that can match different needs of consumers. Recently, the brand has launched its latest mid-range smartphone that comes with trendy features – the Y9 Prime 2019.

Meanwhile, a young mobile brand, Realme, has successfully gathered fans by introducing jam-packed phones. With the launch of the Realme 3 Pro, the company also proved that not all capable handsets will cost an arm and leg.

Let’s put the two devices on our battle sheet to see which phone can offer more at its price point. Let’s get it on!

The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 and Realme 3 Pro are both dressed with a premium-like design. However, the Realme 3 Pro comes with a more attractive physique – thanks to its flashy color gradient options. The tricky part here, on other hand, is that Huawei equipped its pick with a trendy pop-up camera. And since it sports an elevating selfie cam, the Y9 Prime 2019 delivers a more immersive 6.59-inch screen with FHD+ 2340 x 1080 resolution. Hence, users who love watching videos and playing games will never regret having this phone.

The Y9 Prime 2019 also boasts a better photography department, as it is geared with a triple-rear camera setup composed of a 16-megapixel f/1.8 main shooter, 8-megapixel f/2.4 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Nevertheless, the Realme 3 Pro still delivers impressive photos even if it only comes with dual rear cameras. Moreover, the device features a more capable 25-megapixel f/2.0 selfie snapper than its rival’s 16-megapixel f/2.2 pop-up camera.

Under the hood, many would agree that the Realme 3 Pro was able to dominate the section. The device loads a more powerful Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor paired with Adreno 616 GPU, compared with the Y9 Prime 2019’s Kirin 710F chip and Mali-G51 MP4 graphics. Realme also offers up to 6GB RAM.

But to be fair, if you’re going to settle with just 4GB RAM, Huawei complemented its handset with a larger 128GB storage than Realme’s underwhelming 64GB.

Meanwhile, in terms of its stamina, the Realme 3 Pro also has a slightly larger 4,045mAh battery than Huawei’s 4,000mAh juice. Both devices support fast charging.

The Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 is priced at Php12,990, while consumers can get the Realme 3 Pro for Php12,990 (4GB/64GB) and Php14,990 (6GB/128GB).
