I tested this phone. Nearly a perfect phone
but with few critical drawbacks for $600 phone:
~ Fantastic LCD display
~ Superb processor (web pages load slightly faster than on Note 5)
~Touch interface not as mouth as on high end Samsung phones (because of that, over all experience feels slower)
~Same Android issues with Keyboard. Typing is a bit difficult because of bad touch and sometimes a keyboard is acting up badly.
I'm not saying that Samsung phones are prefect but it seems like only Samsung (maybe LG as well) has solved a problem with Android Touch interface issues that cause very difficult typing.

Mac, 12 Dec 2016Hi all. just bought a Huawei Mate 9 which is from China. I have found out that I cant open the... moreThats because the Mate 9 from China only uses China Rom or China Software. It wont have google play services and will have issues with google apps as the software doesnt allow or support it. My advice is try returning it to the seller and get your money back and buy the Global or International version

ItÂ’s a big, all-metal phone, with a very large piece of Gorilla Glass over the display, so the extra weight isnÂ’t a shock. This whopping size doesnÂ’t apply to the fingerprint sensor, which is below the camera lens on the rear. ItÂ’s actually quite small and is completely obscured by my fingertip. ItÂ’s no bad thing, and the accuracy canÂ’t be faulted.
No mention of Gorilla Glass or any kind of scratch resistant glass on here and Huawei's website. Anybody know any info on the glass being used in this phone?

best phone of 2016 - 2017 so far,. from design, build quality, camera, battery. etc.. i love everything about this phone!!! amazingly fast and beautiful!!
Great CPU, big screen and big battery, fast charging feature, dedicated in photography; me sure wants it!
I love the Mate 9, but the only problem it has is with YouTube and Facebook videos, they suddenly stop playing. They start working again just fine when I restart the device.
And the sound system. If I enable screen lock sound for example, the phone suddenly stops making any sound when I lock the screen. And after heavy use it stops notification tone by itself.
Other than that, the phone is perfect. And the battery life is just amazingly long.
