Jaime, 23 Sep 2017Pls help which is better to buy Honor 9, samsung a5 2017 or J7 2017?Buy the honor 9 bro
The box,in which comes the phone is beautiful. But inside is not. There is only phone, charger, manual, and in other countries case, but not in mine. Nothing else. Nothing to make impress.
Very low battery life - four hours display usage and phone is off. In comparsion with my old mid range Honor 5C, 5C has excellent battery. But charging is on H9 very fast, my old one had not this.
Great performance. Its very fast phone, everything is opened in light speed, rarely apps are reopening, so RAM is too good.
EMUI is bad. For Honor 5C, which got EMUI 5, it was great and for priced phone like 5C, EMUI 5 has great functions. But not for H9. H9 is three times more expensive than 5C and i expected some more functions and improvements, like in Galaxy S7, which has a lot more functions than H9. With H9 í felt like i have more expensive 5C, but still cheap phone. With S7 í feel í actually have expensive and premium phone.
Updates sick. Compared to 5C, which got three EMUI 4 updates and one EMUI 5 update - the phone says that no update is available in official app, but when i use Firmware Finder app (unofficial app, which is for downloading official EMUI updates) it shows all updates list and date when they were released. Í can live with this if i have 5C, but i can't do the same with H9!
Camera is bad. 5C made me to say WOW when i taken pictures from it, because before 5C í had low end phone. It has lot of improvements and great low light performance for phone priced like this. But H9 was same. It has optical zoom, but that is everything. Nothing impressed me on camera. Sometimes í felt that photo from 5C was better that H9, especially in low light, maybe due to f/2.2 (H9) vs f/2.0 (5C).
Anyway, it looks beautiful. Sapphire Blue variant is gorgeous, really loved it. But sometimes, when comparing H9 with my current Galaxy S7, i feel more "Premium" with my S7.
I had Huawei Y6 Pro and it was great phone for great price, same with Honor 5C. But Honor 9 is really overpriced and very expensive with slightly or no improvements (compared to Honor 5C mid range phone). I feel that this phone is higher mid range, but not high end, as is presented in many shops and websites. Í really hated Samsung devices but after H9 í had to buy Galaxy S7, which costs same price as H9 in my country with cashback (CZ).

in landscape mode your screen will be black.
other brands use a different coating and will not get black but the colours
I've been hearing quite good reviews about Honor phones. But the thing is they are not that quick with updates aren/t they? And all of them (including the 6X & 8) are all shiny metal phones that don't even have a very basic splash-resistant nano coating that when it gets wet the phone will just stop. True? And sunlight readability (despite all the tech inside the screen, colour calibration, etc.) isn't really good. Comments please?
If you're a gamer and want performance, go for Oneplus5. In today's date, it is the fastest.

I have read that the screen polarization is vertical that means the srcreen will "go blank" when viewed with polarized sunglasses - i.e. the polarization of the screen and sunglasses interfere with each other.
Hi guys, how are you? wanted to know about his battery, it lasts a full day with mixed use, not very intense use but not too light ??
leugimrc, 06 Sep 2017A question for the users. How many shots/pics per second de back camera does in high res? can... moreIf you thinking about Burst mode-shooting in honor 9 user manuals is stated that you can take up to 100 pics per burst sequence if you have storage (Burst shooting mode only without HDR, Panorma, Light painting, Super Night mode). There is some official info about P9 for Emui 4.1, can take up to 100 pics in 6 sec in Burst mode so i belive that Honor 9 is equivalent because of better CPU/GPU/RAM configuration but also larger mpx camera so more data to process. So approximately 16 pics/sec
A question for the users.
How many shots/pics per second de back camera does in high res? cant find that spec anywere.
I must say, i compared honor 9 and P10 side by side in store(only black available in Croatia). Honor 9 feels much more premium phone than P10 in hand, i was amazed! Yes its biger but holding honor 9 in hand is so much nicer. Sadly price of P10 and honor 9 is the same 530Â€ (+/-20Â€) for now in croatia. P10 cons are Leica and separate monochromatic photo, but that honor 9 is slick phone. Premium finish, its like it is made from just one part, you cant feel transition between front-back glass and metal frame!
