Purchased my Mate9 in Jan/2018. Worked fine for me until my screen broke last month. I live in Paris (by the way)
Only Authorised repair shop is a store named POINT SERVICE MOBILE.
Surprusingly they charged me 130 euros for the screen replacement and for the digitizer. (I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE ACTUAL PRICEIN THE MARKET)
Had to do it because I was in need of my phone.
Prior to the repair, my phone never let me control the function because it presses lot of buttons constantly on its own with my entire screen coverned in red colour parallel lines.
(Not sute if they have used an ordinary or duplicate acreen replacement. After the repair, i have lost the screen clarity, camera quality although it still give a picture with 5.7mb size whe in 20mp mode.
That said, its been just aday ater the repair, and I am facing the same automatic button presses on my screen and ita impossible to stop it. Phone heats up alottttt.
Plz advise what shall I do?
True I am visiting that shitty standalone atore again but I think i am fcuked already.
Moral of my post:Mate9 is an awesome phone but incase if anything happens to your phone, you are screwed because they lack in service center.

The mate 7 never gave me a reason to look for a new phone......until it's fate. Anyway, because the mate 7 did me well for two years, I chose the the mate 9 as it's latest form. Very impressed at the progress of the mate. Regardless of the water proof issue, it has a grand feeling on the palm with loads to offer. Well done Huawei!

This phone is not water resistant (any level) People they live in rainy area or some where like that cannot buy it! They have to buy water proof cover! This phone basically cant touch the water! that`s all!
Never buy it, never advise it!
1.This phone not resistant to water
2. you cannot record video more that 35 celcious/ 90f. phone gets hot like hell and drains the battery within minutes.
3. I feel sorry for Leica. I just this phone for two reason let me trust:Google and Leica!. Google do not work with them right now. I am expecting same move from Leica too.
4 If you have bought it return it (before trial or before too late.)

I used this for six months before I switched to Samsung Galaxy S8, I think Huawei still need to improve in camera (video quality and OIS) and UI software. But overall this Mate 9 still worth to buy, but you'll be wiser if you buy Oneplus 5 this time because of their price and performance. Or just wait for 2-3 months until the next Mate Series launch in Munich "Huawei Mate 10"
I am facing severe wifi issue with my Mate 9. Whenever I try to switch it ON it immediately goes back to OFF status. Did hard reset but didn't help. Anyone here facing same issue?

Shtayeh, 31 Jul 2017Hello guys.. What is the last security android patch level in mate 9? February I think. Why they're not pushing any OTA updates? Sad.

AnonD-651762, 29 Jul 2017does anyone who own this know if it overheats during extended usage?Hey, I play "war robots" and it warm up during that just a little, but not overheat any way
Have had this phone for 3 months now and im not happy. Battery drains like crazy despite all the tweaks, sometimes it freezes, and it occasionally loses internet connectivity (i have to remove my sim card to restore internet connectivity). Anyway its a Huawei, lm not surprised. Should have known better.
Huwaei give accedental warranty but when you clame it its take more than 40 days on your phone case. What a rebuish policy is this i am a big user of huwaei phones but when i clame my phone its takes 45 days to return the phone i am so disappointed about that policy
does anyone who own this know if it overheats during extended usage?
1.The reality is This phone does not have ANY LEVEL water proof. Service center says even in rain, phone can be damaged that is not covered by warranty.
2. After 90 degree of temperature phone is draining its battery. At more than 100 degree temperature weather, if you shoot a video the phone basically goes hot like hell.
3. The support and service center. The service center just mess. the Communication is problem. They even do not listen you. I wanted to talk to supervisor. Tony the guy who is a rep in support center he did not let me talk. The culture is completely different what I see in Google Nexus or in iphone support center.
4. They do not have enough warranty. Huawei thing they have good phone compatible with the other and they want to charge same money. That is just a mess if they do not have warranty!
What is good about it? Yes the camera is nice. thats all. Dont buy it dont advise it.
