This phone is amazing. Great battery life, camera is really good, screen is so damn bright that it's easy to read in a sunny day and sound quality while using headphones seems to be pretty good. Speakers are very loud, hard to miss a call or a notification. The sound is obviously flat like all phone speakers out there. Fingerprint scanner is working well, it's very fast.
Build quality is really nice as well, but the phone is slippery and made of aluminum, of which I'm not the biggest fan. Kirin 960 seems to be able to handle Android really well, doesn't lag at all. Gaming I haven't tried, I have a high-end PC for that purpose.
UI's use of white color bothered me and so I downloaded a theme (from XDA) which made the whole UI (settings-menu too!) dark. Wish this phone had AMOLED-screen... That's my only real "issue" with this phone. Other than that, I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

You can buy phonecases in every colour you like, I have a very beautiful dark blue case for my Mate 9.
Would be great if you could buy the other colors in the US. All I can find is space gray and silver. Basically gray or gray
If you have this device now,and want to have FM Radio on it,can try to install this app "NextRadio".
This device should have a built-in FM radio tuner,but without the stock FM app installed.
Please try out this app and let us know whether it works.
No root and internet streaming needed for this app,just install and run it,it is live FM broadcasting,if you are able to tune in to any FM broadcasts,congratulation your mate 9 has FM radio feature.
Sv38crs, 06 Mar 2017Hi i have a qwestion iPhone 7 plus or mate 9Look people purchase Apple iPhone for status and you can decide what you want the phone for!
There's no denying that the Huawei Mate 9 is a great flagship smartphone. Its Kirin 960 processor does an admirable job of keeping everything running smoothly, its Leica dual-camera system is worthy enough to bear the name of the legendary German camera...
Sv38crs, 06 Mar 2017Hi i have a qwestion iPhone 7 plus or mate 9Go for Mate 9..
Why? Because Apple is not complete, check their logo. Somebody bit the 1/4 of it :)
Sv38crs, 06 Mar 2017Hi i have a qwestion iPhone 7 plus or mate 9It really depends on what you want in a smartphone. My husband would choose an iPhone as he found an Android too complicated (he has the iPhone 5c it suits him fine), myself I like the Android phones (former Blackberry nut). Currently I am looking at the Huawei Mate 9 for the two reasons: Screen size 5.9" with dual bottom speakers. I am also looking at the ZTE Axon 7: Screen is slightly smaller, 5.5" with dual front speakers... The Huawei is running on a different processor then the 7 but both phones are running OS Nougat, both processors are fast. Price the ZTE Axon 7 is less expensive. The Mate is 599.99 and the 7 is 399.99. You can compare the phones above. Also these two phones are GMS unlocked, AT&T, Cricket, T-Mobile, etc. I haven't searched the iPhones to see if you can get it unlocked. I need a Big Screen Phone.... Good luck in your phone search!

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..
