Size comparison of Google Pixel 5 and Huawei Y9a. Which one would you choose?

Your device's size has a huge influence on how easy it is to hold or to operate with one hand. The smaller your device's width, the easier it will be to hold, but you'll also need to take device thickness into account. And when the length and width are both smaller, you'll find that it's much easier for you to operate it one-handed, since your fingers will find it much easier to reach where you want them to. On the other hand, longer lengths and wider widths might lead to devices that are hard to carry in your pocket, bulky even when you keep them in your bag, and all around less portable.

The Google Pixel 5 is 2.8inches (70.4mm) wide, 5.7inches (144.7mm) tall, and 0.3inches (8mm) thick. The Huawei Y9a is 3.0inches (76.5mm) tall, 6.4inches (163.5mm) wide, and 0.4inches (9mm) thick.

The Google Pixel 5 is also more compact than the Huawei Y9a in terms of the thickness of the devices. The Google Pixel 5 is easier than the Huawei Y9a to hold with one hand, and you are less likely to accidentally drop it.

How is the battery duration of Google Pixel 5 different from that of Huawei Y9a ? See the differences

Battery performance has a big effect on the battery life of your device. However, a high battery capacity doesn't necessarily mean a long battery life. Rather, the rate of power consumption needs to be taken into consideration as well. The larger the screen and the higher the CPU performance, the higher the rate of power consumption on your battery.

Which is better in terms of CPU function, Google Pixel 5 or Huawei Y9a?

Your CPU's speed will influence the processing power of the applications you run, and together with the number of cores in the CPU, as well as its clock frequency, will determine the processing power available for apps. The higher these performance factors, the smoother your games and apps will run. Conversely, if these factors are too low, your apps and games will be sluggish and struggle to run.

The Google Pixel 5 is equipped with a Qualcomm SDM765 Snapdragon 765G processor, and its performance speed is 2.4GHz+2.2GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore). The Huawei Y9a uses an Mediatek Helio G80 CPU that performs at a speed of 2.0GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore). There is also no real discrepancy between the CPU performances of the Google Pixel 5 and Huawei Y9a. Because of this, both phones will feel practically identical in terms of smoothness when running apps and ease of game play. This is why it is better to compare them based on other aspects of performance and function.

How is Google Pixel 5 different from Huawei Y9a in terms of memory capacity?

Your device's multimedia performance and app stability are both influenced by the amount of memory it has available. The more memory, the more apps you can use simultaneously, while keeping everything stable and smooth. Plus, there'll be less chance of animations lagging or apps crashing. You also need to keep in mind that some games won't run at all if there's not enough memory available.

The Google Pixel 5 has 8GB of memory. The Huawei Y9a, on the other hand, has 8GB. Memory performance is roughly the same for both the Google Pixel 5 and Huawei Y9a; as a result, multitasking, playing 3D games, and using VR feels the same on both devices. Because of this, it is better to compare them based on other aspects of performance and function.

Which has a better storage capacity, Google Pixel 5 or Huawei Y9a?

Storage capacity determines the amount of data you'll be able to save on your device. The more storage you have, the more photos you can take and the more apps you can install. Plus, if your smartphone is compatible with SD cards, then you can increase the amount of available storage. However, SD cards have a slower writespeed, making them less desirable in terms of performance, and users should be aware that it won't be possible to transfer all kinds of data to the card.

The Google Pixel 5 has 128GB of storage, while the Huawei Y9a has 128GB. There is no real difference between the Google Pixel 5andHuawei Y9a's ROMs and storage capacities, so both can store roughly the same amount of photographs and apps. Because of this, it is better to compare them based on other aspects of performance and function.

Compare the rear cameras of Google Pixel 5 and Huawei Y9a. Which one has better picture quality?

One factor in how well your rear camera (the camera on the back of your device) performs is its megapixel count. With a higher megapixel count, you'll be able to take photos with sharper detail, photos that stay clear and sharp even when printed.

The main camera on the Google Pixel 5 has 16 MP. The Huawei Y9a has 64 MP. The rear-facing camera of the Huawei Y9a also has a higher pixel count than the Google Pixel 5, with a difference of about 48 MP.

Which has a front camera with better picture quality, Google Pixel 5 or Huawei Y9a?

One indication of how well your forward facing camera (the camera on the same side as your device's screen) performs is how many megapixels it has. More megapixels means you'll be able to take photos with sharper detail, that still look amazing printed out.

The forward-facing camera on the Google Pixel 5 has a resolution of 8 MP. The Huawei Y9a's has 16 MP.
