This is one of the Best phones on the Market for 2017 right now. I’m an I.T. Guy but I ill try to keep my review as simple as possible.
First off, the display is lovely, it’s an IPS LCD screen, this by far is not the best screen on the market but Huawei has done a great job in keeping the colors rich and bright. The size of the screen is perfect for watching videos. I spend a lot of time on youtube and other streaming sites and because of the screen I rely on my phone more than my tablet to watch said videos.
The Camera – The camera is a 20 MP Hybrid and it works great,I’m a traveler and I love to take photos where ever I may go. The wide aperture effects is great,it really makes you photos stand out. Night shots is above average and videos do not shake much when moving. The phone does have the option of inserting a micro-sd card so you can expand your storage to save your photos and videos. The front facing camera is an 8 MP and its takes good selfie photos and it has a wide angle view so taking those group selfies is problem free.
The Speaker- The phone has a twin grill however there is only one speaker. This is fine as the speaker performs above average and it can get really loud before it distorts the sound.
The Battery- The Battery is a 4000 mAh. This is one of the most important components of the phone for me. Because of the amount of power it holds I get more than a day of charge, and note I’m an above average user of the phone; wifi,streaming,pics, social media,etc. In addition to the amount of power, the rapid charge technology also is a great addition. Usually I would have to charge my previous phones over night to get a full days charge. But this is not the case with the mate 9. I would leave it to charge for about 30 mins and I’m good for the day.
IR Blaster- This is a great feature. In my bedroom I use 6 remotes and sometimes family members tend to use said remotes and misplace them, with the mate 9 I control my cable box,TV,Stereo, Air-condition and more. So when i get home after a hard day of work I don’t get into arguments for the misplaced remotes, I just whip out my phone select which remote I want and just use it.
Performance – Since I got this phone I have no issues with performance , I never experienced any lag, overall performance has been fluid.
Like everything else, there is a few cons:
– Having a big screen means having to use both hands to use the phone, but there is a feature that helps with that. The screen can be shrunk to the left or the right for one hand operation.
– A bigger screen also means a bigger surface that can get scratches. I strongly recommend a screen protector or a temper glass to protect from scratches and cracks.
– Another issue with the screen is that because of its size it feels awkward in the hand when in a horizontal position for screen typing
I recommend this phone to anyone who wants a Phablet that can give you more than a day of battery life and also requires a good camera. Overall this is a great phone and I highly recommend it.
