Silentwalker, 28 May 2022Go to the Huawei App Gallery, search for Gspace and click i... moreUnfortunately dual space and such programs will not solve the problem .limited functionality with so many ads and worst of all you get only a virtual machine that cannot access all the data in your mobile such as photos or audio etc. I am using my y9a only as radio FM recriver otherwise it is worth nothing without official google services as of now.

Been using the Y9A for about 3 weeks (South Africa, FRL-22, EMUI 10.0.1)
These are my personal opinions:
• 40W Charging is a bonus
• Screen is huge and pretty bright
• Fingerprint scanner is very accurate
• Camera can be excellent in *certain cases
• EIS does a good job at smoothing out bumps
• App Gallery does a good job with adding new apps
• No 4K video option (even though it should be there)
• No portrait mode (except with AI scene detection)
• No burst shot (even though it should be there)
• No light trails or slow motion
• The supposed Super Night Mode is absolutely terrible
• Auto camera is often overexposed and oversaturated
• Selfie camera over-beautifies even with Beauty on 0
• Helio SoC sometimes feels sluggish
• The lack of 60FPS video recording is concerning
• The geo-tagging is a little wonky
Overall an acceptable handset for the price, but you can find better alternatives in this price segment with a little patience. Don't expect wonders from this handset, as it is a lower tier mid-ranger at best.

Which phone is the best to buy? Huawei Nova Y9A or Huawei Nova 8i? According to specs

Kuzgun, 20 Jan 2022What did you expect for an entry level phone? A Huawei Mate... moreFor 400$ you think this is pretty good? You're wrong. 425$ is entering mid range territory. Go see what the r edmi note 10 pro does for only 294$ because it's clear you don't know what you are talking about

Huawei is really alienating the few supporters they have in South Africa with this crap. Releasing a Y Series phone (released in 2020) in our country under the Nova moniker, claiming it's a "new" addition. Very poor form, and hideously overpriced for the specs.
