Well brought this phone by jan of 2017,2019 Jan changed battery once.last two weeks change a motherboard and another battery,after that keep in using. meanwhile get another unit of Samsung Galaxy note 20 ultra (exynos 990) first day using Android 10 as for the battery life it's a disaster,when I was using this mate 9 mostly charging twice a day with heavy usage,for note 20 ultra I need to charge around 4 times as same usage. Although the screen are superb and huge camera improvement.but until today I still prefer mate 9 rock solid and I miss the 3.5mm plug for many ear phone and expendable possibility,the USB c ear phone just need to purchase USB c hub for the galaxy note 20 ultra,and after upgrading to Android 11 with one UI 3.0 , slightly better bettery life,but if huawei having back GMS I believe I will switch back to huawei phone.i choose Samsung it's because the GMS.
But will keep this mate 9 with me and keep on using this as backup a phone.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2020Bro my is on android 9 don't know what problem is with your phomeI own 2 mate 9 one is still on 8
I am still using my Huawei mate 9 in Dec.2020 and will continue to use it until another phone which ia at least 3.1 inches (79 mm) wide with a bright display ( at least 550 nits on manual not auto) is released. There is currently no match for huawei mate 9 IMO. Mate 9 has a fingerprint reader on the backside right under my index finger when I hold the phone. Mate 9 is still very fast with todays standards and great battery life. Unless you are a gamer you do not need a faster phone.
sonny, 12 Nov 2020does the mate 9 have wireless charging? Yes it can be charged wireless. but charging is slow
Michael569, 19 Sep 2020Is anyone having any problem with the Huawei mate 9 and update I am still awaiting and Android... moreMate 9 stopped updates like almost two years ago. One downfall with using a phone that is not honored well in the U.S. Great device when it was released. I just use it on wifi now. It is my secondary phone so i don't use my daily drive as much when home.
Is anyone having any problem with the Huawei mate 9 and update I am still awaiting and Android 9 still don't receive it as yet
I like mate 9, never slow, stuck 9.1, still descent to use camera are good, I manage to replace the battery, quick and easy
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2020Been using this phone for more than 3 yrs now and it still works perfectly fine..Me too, honestly the battery is not the same as it was but still a very decent phone....I will say the camera system is really shit so I'm replacing it for that reason
Been using this phone for more than 3 yrs now and it still works perfectly fine..
Best phone ever. After 3 years still working flawlessly, robust, good camera, good battery, never slow down, and some very interesting features.
Can't imagine this phone still on my hand, never slow, has it ages, stop upgrading and stuck to 9.1 but still works fine, great phone ever!
Loved this phone.....
Unfortunately I stupidly lost it earlier this year and have been stuck with a S8+ which was released after the Mate 9 and it pales in comparison to the Mate. Inferior in EVERYTHING except bluetooth connectivity. Getting a Nova 5t soon, hopefully that will have the same lasting power
