Y7 Pro 2019 features Face Unlock 2.0, a quick and easy to unlock devices using the artificial intelligence and the 16MP front camera, authenticating the identity of the user and unlock the device quickly, it lacks the biometrics feature such as fingerprint scanning though which are present in other competitor though, but the accuracy of the Face unlock can suffice and finger scan is a feature that others can live without.

Aesthetics and Experience
The Y7 Pro 2019 greets you with a 6.26-inch Dewdrop display with a togglable pearl-shaped notch (Huawei’s smallest notches to date) situated in the middle of the device providing a wider and more vivid visual experience.

Mobile Photography Experience
It’s 13+2MP rear dual cameras can recognize 22 different categories of objects through AI processing helping the user to capture great images at ‘Auto Mode’, this is the default setting upon launching rear camera but let’s you choose more Camera modes when one decides to use personal preference.

Aperture Mode’ when you want to capture portrait images with user-dependent aperture level scroll vertical bar.

In the samples shots below, AI assist is ONn but the photos are not that so vivid using the rear camera but a little tweak using filters or mobile editing software could enhance the photo experience. But for me still an acceptable output from a camera sensor at this entry level class.

Finally, Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 is conceived to beat expectations for the entry-level class, it has the balanced of features, hardware and its price point. Though there are features that are on our ‘must have’ list, but these same features can be on our ‘Can live without’ list such as higher version Android 9 Pie, gyroscope sensor for highly demanding apps and biometrics access scanning. As I said the balance  within Y7 Pro is there at its price point, it boasts of features where users can bank on such as 16MP Selfie Camera (very food performence by the way), Vibrant pearl-shaped notched, Reliable Face recognition and stretched battery life.
