So for a start both phones are tied in this category. You get same value for the money spent here. Now lets move on to the build, design and display category to see where the differences begins.

Build, Design and Display

The difference actually starts from the build of both phones. Tecno Camon 15 Premier has Glass front, plastic back, plastic frame build while the Huawei Y9s has a Front/back glass, aluminum frame build. Different materials were used to build these phones which means you’ll start noticing they are not same the moment you hold them.

Both phones have the pop up selfie camera which means you have the whole screen to your self. They both have similar display size, the Huawei Y9s display size is 6.59 inch while Camon 15 Premier is 6.6 inch. Well, its pretty much same to me. You can hardly notice the 0.01 inch difference in display size.

Huawei placed the fingerprint sensor at the side of the Huawei Y9s but Tecno placed its own at the rear. Side, under display, top, bottom or rear, the most important thing is the fingerprint sensor is functional.

With the above been said, both phones comes with great designs but different built materials. So, you have decide which one you like and go for it.

Operating System and Chipset

Huawei Y9s was released in 2019 and its running Android 9.0 (Pie) along with the User Interface ColorOS 6.1. The Camon 15 Premier was released in 2020 and its running Android 10.0 along with the User Interface HIOS 6.0. The Huawei Y9s will be getting the Android 10 update sometime in the future.

There are also differences in the SOC section. Camon 15 Premier uses the Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 (12nm) SOC while the Huawei Y9s uses Hisilicon Kirin 710F (12 nm) SOC. Both SOCs are built on same nm (12nm) which means they are expected to perform on same level.

You should expect almost same performance from the SOCs of both phones. Image processing, browsing, download, upload speed etc. But, there might a change in favor of the Huawei phone when it comes to gaming and graphics due to its Mali GPU.

Internal Storage and RAM

Both of these phones comes with a 6GB RAM and 128GB Internal Storage. There is also option for external storage via microSD card. There is really nothing much to talk about here. In this category, both phones brings same value to the table.

  1. This is a waste of article space. You clearly don’t know anything about there two phones and to help you out, the tecno camon 15 is no match for the y9s. Also, what gave you the idea that chips produced on the same size range means similar performance? Lol! Helio P22 is on the same 12nm basis too so you clearly just assuming things you shouldn’t here. And the third party Mediatek Helio chipset is really not in the same class as HiSilicon Kirin owned by Huawei

    1. Techist thank you for stopping by.

      First its true i really don’t know much about phone and i learn everyday. Well actually no one knows it all not even you.

      Second, the comparison was not with Camon 15 but the PREMIER version seems you missed that. Then again the SOC of the Camon 15 premier is Helio P35 and not Helio P22 as you stated above. Again you missed that. Also, SOC built built on same NM are always expected to run on same speed, the advantage in the Kirin SOC above is the new CPU cores Cortex A76 that it comes with. And if you read the post well you’d notice i said the Kirin SOC have an advantage.

      Lastly, just because an SOC is a third party does not make it inferior. Here at Tech Arena24 we don’t write articles with Sentiments. We source for info, compare paper specifications and live tests before we compose our comparison articles.

      Once again, thank you for stopping by. I’d love to learn from you someday.

  2. great comparison. You guy’s are amazing… Some just have that low mentality that tecno can’t compare with so called elite phones. My tecno does better that an iPhone of the same price. Why Buy a luxury you can’t enjoy.

    Tecno is the rising 👑 of mobile phone
