I think this is a nice article to compare both devices to see the difference and similarities between them. Sure, we expect to see a difference and we also know that somethings will remain unchanged. If you want to buy any of them and wondering which should you get, this article is here to help you make an informed choice.

The comparison of this two smartphones is based on the phone specs, features, complete technical specifications to help you gain clear details about them so you can make a good choice in case you want to buy. Let's start with the specifications.

Specification Verdict

From the specification above, there is a difference between the two phones (that is our main concentration) and there are also some similarities. The Y7 Prime 2019 has some updates on the area of the Display, Front camera and Battery capacity.

It has a 4000mAh battery capacity as compared to the 3000mAh of the Y7 Prime 2018, the 2019 version also boasts a widescreen display of 6.26 inches as compared to the 5.99inches of the 2018 version, it also has a better front selfie camera of 16MP as compared to the 8MP of 2018 version.

Aside from the Display, Battery and Front Camera, every other specification is the same but with a different design, like they both have a dual back camera positioned differently. For the 2019 version, the dual camera is positioned vertically with the LED flash underneath the camera.

While for the 2018 version, the dual back camera is positioned horizontally. We can see a clear update made to the 2018 version, therefore, I would recommend the Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 over the 2018 version because of this upgrades.

Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 vs Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 - Features

Ideally, we expect to see an added feature also.

Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 - Features
  • Available in Aurora Blue, Coral Red, and Midnight Black
  • AI power saving technology
  • Face Unlock 2.0
  • 4G LTE
  • Easy Mode to provide a better experience
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • OTG support
  • Split-screen
Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 - Features
  • Available in Blue, Black, and Gold
  • Face Unlock 2.0
  • 4G LTE
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • OTG support
  • Split-screen
Features Verdict

There is no much difference within the features area, only that, they both available in different colours, the 2019 version uses an AI power saving technology to ensure a longer lasting battery. This AI Power saving feature is missing in the 2018 version. It also has an Easy Mode feature that makes the device easy to use for handicapped people (work like Microsoft easy of access)

Aside from that, every other thing is the same, both devices can split-screen to enable you to multitask, features both fingerprint and face lock to protect your device. They also support 4G LTE for fast internet browsing, OTG for file transfer.

Since there is no clear difference between the features, I would still make my decision based on the specification (where the 2019 version is a clear winner).

Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 vs Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 - Price

I am including the price because you may have a budget and that would form your bases of decision making between the two devices. That is one of the main reason I added the price.

The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 cost around ₹ 15,990 (81,000 Naira), while the Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 cost around ₹ 14,990 (75,000 Naira Check on Jumia NG). The price may differ depending on where you are buying the device. But this is the launch prices

Conclusion - Final Verdict

The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 version clearly stands out to me, considering all the features, specification and price. If your budget is too tight and you can't afford the 2019 version then you may consider choosing another device with at least a higher battery capacity.

I would usually recommend smartphones with at least 4000mAh. But the price range is that much if, the 2019 version is worth the extra cash.

This is my own decison, you are free to make yours.

Thanks
