Although I am currently waiting for delivery of a new Mate 9 Pro I will tell you that I absolutely LOVE this phone. I've had the blue version with 64gb memory for about 6 months. It came with the Nougat update already installed but I am sitting here waiting for the Oreo update which should be coming shortly. This thing has been everything I need in a phone and then some. Although I don't do any gaming on it (for now) I am quite sure the blazing speed on it would work great. I read about the fast charging time of the Mate 9 Pro and I can't help but wonder how much faster it will be then this thing. I let it get down to 25 percent. In 30 minutes it was up to 75 percent and in one hour it was at 92 percent. How much faster can anyone want. In addition, a full charge easily lasts an entire day. I generally am down to maybe 40 percent at night. Of course, heavy gaming or web browsing will affect this as well. This is my second Huawei, the first being the Honor 6X which was a leap of faith. Won't be going to any other brand from now on. You may ask why, if I live this phone so much, am I going to the Mate 9 Pro. Simple answer. I love getting newer and better stuff. If you are at all looking for a really great phone at a great price point, I really suggest the Honor 8 or 8 Pro. Great graphics, sound quality second to none and excellent camera. I guess if I absolutely HAD to specify a downside, it would be the all glass construction. Yes it makes it gorgeous to look at and hold, but the back glass especially is somewhat of a fingerprint magnet. That was one of the reasons why I decided to buy the Mate 9 Pro with it's all aluminum body. However, small price to pay for such a wonderful device.
RaminItsme, 04 Dec 2017I'm planning to buy this phone too , but i hear a lots of software update problems , some of u... moreNo Worries. Once u got the OTA, updates is smooth sailing. Battery life is still good and a noticeable faster speed after nougat. Only downside i notice so far (just recently updated) is we lose the elegant dial control in photo pro mode which i love. Its a great phone really...so log u dont drop it. Cheers
SibirskiPlavac, 11 Dec 2017Ofc bro. You need about 40% or more battery life and more than 2gb of free storage. Than try again.Dear, the size of update is about 2.2 GB. So I suggest u must Reset ur phone if u want to update it to latest firmware, i.e, Android 7.0 (Nougat)and EMUI 5.0.1. Believe me u'll start loving ur phone after this update.
