I've had the Mate 9 for a couple of weeks now. It is a wonderful phone. After using Note 3 for three years, I tell you that nothing can beat the Note series from Samsung. With Note 7 off the market, I had to look for an alternative. My choice was the Mate 9. The Mate 9 is better than other devices that are in the same class like the S7 edge.
Battery seems to last forever. I really don't charge this phone much, even though I am an abusive user of my phones. The camera is really good and takes wonderful pictures showing all details and colors. Video recording was a little bit disappointing.
The only thing I dislike is that the touch isn't as sensitive as I'd hoped. And the keyboard(s). I liked Samsung keyboard better.
Other than that, the Mate 9 is awesome. I recommend it :)
hihi, 03 Jan 2017should I go for huawei mate 9 or htc 10 or samsung galaxy a9 pro??Must go for mate. No way to hesitate. I am currently using Mate 9. Last time i was tried most of the high end like S7 edge, OP3/T but feel Mate is the most convenient to use for overall usages.

Both S7 Edge and Mi 5S plus cannot close to Mate 9 But S7 edge is good in camera. For the rest Mate is the beast. If you prefer better performance except camera, go for OP3T.

psteele, 01 Jan 2017the Huawei Honor Note 8 is much better than this, check it out.No. Mainly this device is not widely available. The device from China is noticeably different from Global version.

Best is the OP3T with excellent but not changeable even i rooted the device. Mate 9 is the close competitor with monster for all. Any i was never tried google pixel.
Kevin Lee, 01 Jan 2017Uh...First thing is that, did you know Huawei Support almost 130 plus of languages out of the ... more I am also using with myanmar zawgyi language in Singapore. Is there any problem with burmese language? For burmese only huawei is the easiest to change font withour rooting. I love all the huawei device starting from P6,P9,Mate 8, Honor 8 and finally it Mate9. I was tried most of the phone like S7 edge,LG G5,Axon 7, Iphone 6 to 7s Plus, Op3/3T.
One Plus is the most fluent device and Mate 9 is almost closer. Worst Samsung S7 edge except camera but now google phone can easily compare .
very good device, especially the dual sim card facilities. Completely love it. Highly recommend to someone who is willing to try something new. After bought it, I had thrown away my IPhone, Samsun phone devices to my kids

But Huawei update is very very slow
My Mate 9 build# is still B110 and Android Security Patch is 1 Oct, 2016.
I bought it last week
I used HTC all model for 6years, but this is a good Device mate 9 but there is a one problem with Whatsap I received the message after opening the application also I change the sitting for battery saving but not solve the problem.
By the way it's good Device with Twin app Facebook and whatsapp
Ruk, 31 Dec 2016Why did you throw it?The awesome advertisements got me good and convinced me to buy it. Actually their marketing is beautiful. But I actually threw it because it's very disappointing. The camera, the ui and software needs optimization. It felt like owning a rebranded phone with apples price. So I went on and had the s7 edge. Nothing feels like having top tier devices.
Also my back up and trap phones are a9 pro and xperia xz. Happy Holidays!
