This is one of the best phones I ever had .... beautiful 5.9" screen ... superb camera aur superb Video in 4K ....pro mode in camera is just amazing ..... ultra fast processer ....64 GB of internal space + Micro SD card slot ..... very cool build in apps ..... this phone is just perfect
The Mate 9 has a 20 MP sensor, and I take 20 MP shots when I take pictures
Ordered the Mate 9, personally my first Huawei ever. Let's see how it goes when I receive it. :)
Hi all.. my battery life was okay.. last me a good 2 days with average usage.. however, after I update to the latest system software 158, the battery life got worse! Just on stand by with auto roaming (no usage).. it dropped from 91℅ to 55℅ in half a day!!! Ridiculous..
I am the proud owner of the very good LG G4. After almost 2 years the screen broke and to replace it would cost me 150Â€. After reading a lot here on GSMArena I decided to buy the Huawei Mate 9. When you look at the specs, this is a serious upgrade, but is it?
First thing you notice, the screen... Wow... Real vivid colours, deep black, a lot bigger then the screen of my LG G4.
Mate 9: 1 - LG G4: 0
Battery. I had to charge my battery 2 times per day, now it lasts a whole day.
Mate 9: 2 - LG G4: 0
Chipset. My new Mate 9 starts a lot faster when I put it on, when I scroll websites, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumbler,... It goes smooth, no hiccups, ... On my old LG G4 sometimes the page feels washed and blurry.
Mate 9: 3 - LG G4: 0
Software: Here I miss my old LG, maybe it's just me, so used on my LG that I find it hard to adapt to the new EMUI software... But now a clear win for LG
Mate 9: 3 - LG G4: 1
Camera: the dual camera of the Mate 9 is bigger and has a lot more fun options. But in low light I feel that my old LG still produces more clear, detail rich pictures... I think this is because of the f2.2 lens compared to the f1.8 used in the LG G4. Also the LG G4 has 16MP and the Mate 9 only 12MP...
Mate 9: 3 - LG G4: 2
I own the Mate 9 just 7 days, so after a month or two I may have changed my opinion on some matters. But now, the Mate 9 won.
Is it worth the upgrade? If you have to buy a new phone, you will love the Mate 9 it's a great phone, but if my LG G4 screen did not break I could have waited for the Huawei P10 Plus (for the f1,8 lens) or maybe even the Huawei Mate 10...

Hi guys can anyone tell me if the battery issues that im hearing alot about have been resolved yet,im anxious to buy this phone and it seems to be the best in class right now
After reading a lot about LG G6, HTC U Ultra and Samsung S8+ I decided today to buy the Huawei Mate 9.
It's alle about getting the best specs and quality for it's price. I got it for 577Â€ in Belgium. Most shops ask 699Â€.
Next week I will post a small review here.
TenzinParis, 25 Feb 2017OnePlus3t seems to be a good phone with strong specs bro. I would go for it too with all the ... moreWhat u mean by battery problems bro? My Mate 9 90% in morning which will actively play whatsapp, messenger, chrome n fb will b left about 20% at 7pm... What u guys think bout his battery life.......
TenzinParis, 25 Feb 2017Thanks bro for your timely response. I checked yesterday for any system update and there was ... morec9 pro in no way has better specs than mate 9. c9 pro is a higher mid range device. mate 9 is a flagship rated at the same category as the iphone 7 plus. pls do your research properly.
I'm having issue with super charge. The super charge does not work on my mate 9. It takes more than 45min to get 50% of battery life.
Appreciate your advise. Thank you so much.
huawei mate 9 or iphone 7plus? which one should i buy? please help me. Thank You
TenzinParis, 25 Feb 2017Honestly, I feel iPhone is just an overly hyped product. I feel most of the people buy iPhone... moreMe either buying iphone it means u buy the company name i was a fan of samsung but since i had a problem with my s7 edge i decided to break up with samsung , then my friend suggested me to buy huawei
TenzinParis, 25 Feb 2017Honestly, I feel iPhone is just an overly hyped product.
I feel most of the people buy iPhone... morethanks yes I love my v20
I will stick with it atleast until may.2017 when I will check s8 and s8+ in local carrier shop
Honestly s8 will be hard to make me sell my v20
but time will tell we have 2-3 months
LohBoonKaih, 25 Feb 2017I was thinking about switch to Oneplus 3T if the battery worsen again, since OnePlus3T is cons... moreOnePlus3t seems to be a good phone with strong specs bro.
I would go for it too with all the specs and customers satisfaction, but sometimes I am picky with brand name. Hehe. That's the only reason I never bought OnePlus3T.
I think you should go for it if the problem persist and Imma sell my Mate 9 and get Galaxy C9 pro if I face the same.
But I want to be with Mate 9 coz I liked everything about it except this sh!tty battery problem.
Nick.B, 25 Feb 2017I have v20 and I have offer direct trade (no extra cash) for iphone 7 plus
should I take it ?Honestly, I feel iPhone is just an overly hyped product.
I feel most of the people buy iPhone just to be considered in the cool league.
But personally, I have never liked iPhone, not coz of price or whatever. It just makes you feel so controlled by it rather than you controlling the phone.
Lots of restrictions and not user friendly. Plus most of the apps are to be purchased.
Maintenance is expensive.
When you can get equal or better specs than iPhone with Huawei, Samsung, LG or any other reputed brand and that too at a much cheaper or cheaper price, why burn your own pocket?
I would say stick with V20. I heard and read many reviews of V20 being very good.
I am not an expert.
I am just sharing my 20 cents thought. Lol
