Just bought mate 9 today in Kuwait from 189.900 KWD = $625.00 64GB Gold colour... Well I am not 100% satisfied but it is what it is. Dumping Note5 for now but I will always wait for new Galaxy Note 8 or whatever. This phone mate 9 is very fast but screen resolution and camera is not up to the mark. I have just bought it because I am using note 5 since last year. And I was fed up of that and wanted something new.
Well I had bought iPhone 7 plus and I own mate 9 as well
The feel of the building quality of iPhone is superb but hey that's all it has to offer if you compare both of these beast.
But don't get me wrong iPhone 7+ is one heck of a gadget and it deserves respect
Both phablets are awesome it's personal preference that what matters more to you
For this kind of level comparing both phablets will be unfair, both enjoy some serious skills and benefits it's the software which is determining factor here other wise the bar they both had set is standard and yet to be achieved by others
I like the design of this phone, and the camera. I am using P8 and the camera is excellent for still photos but bad for videos. This will probably my first and last purchase of huwaei phone due to privacy and security concerns. I am using kaspersky pro version and it's a bit annoying for me cause evey now and then kaspersky alerts me that my browser is not secured because the accessibility settings is off even if i turned it on, it will automatically turn off after a few minutes. I am using chrome browser. I don't know why it turns off automatically.
It's already end of November, and the mate 9 still not officially released in Germany and hence, on gsmarena website too, as usual to inform, released or not.
Raj, 29 Nov 2016Superb phone, photos and videos are awesome even in low light.
I was actually a fan of Samsu... morebro mate 9 is rally owesome phone to every angle??
i want to purchase..tell me..how is battery timing and resolutions and display and camera result?
i hope everhing is fine..just litle bit confuse?
Shaun Moroz, 23 Nov 2016This phablet probably has one of the best cameras out there, and the Kirin 960 does destroy th... moreCamera well....But you should know how to use it....specialy for still photography... in this case it's best than any mobile...Focusing Blur is still better than i7/i7+, s7..
iphone 7/7+,s7 Aperature is Lower than it... So you can Take brighter image in low light in i7, s7 than it... Video Quality is good (not so good) than it. Low fps than it ...OIS is little bit good than it...i7+ prefer you lit bit better zooming than it...... Fact is that Mate 9 provide you true nature color/look rather than i7+,s7.where as i7,s7 provide you brighter, sharper video in Daylight not like nature color in Mate 9.
But in Audio Recording Mate 9 still beat i7+,s7+....
And front camera of Mate 9.... oww it's awosome... no confusion, it's best FFC than any other best current phone...
Front camera's imging, Focusing, Blur, Natural Color, Video, audio, low light far more than any current mobile phone
Raj, 29 Nov 2016Superb phone, photos and videos are awesome even in low light. I was actually a fan of Samsu... morenot only waterproof & Dust proof but also another point is using Mali GPU.........As I know Mali GPU is not Good Enough Than Adreno GPU
Superb phone, photos and videos are awesome even in low light.
I was actually a fan of Samsung, especially when it comes to mobile displays, Samsung stands at top in my opinion.
I have bought Huawei Mate 9 a couple of days ago with lots of expectations and frankly, I am very happy after using for more than 3 days now & display and themes are superb feels luxury. battery backup is good lot of options to make it different from other phones.
Only thing which Huawei has to concentrate is should be dust & water proof.
RomanticBoye, 28 Nov 2016nice. is the standby good?Standby is very good, I have two Google accounts with sync enabled as well as active Whatsapp, it drops very slowly and steadily when not in use. Don't know what overnight looks like since I always charge my phone at night before heading to work.
RomanticBoye, 28 Nov 2016dude how much screen time do you get? i mostly use wifi so how does the battery drain? and wha... moreBattery is at %59 with a little over 3H SOT. I did charge it for a bit (about 15%) when I got home from work however so it will probably be 45-49%.
Abe, 28 Nov 2016Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. dude how much screen time do you get? i mostly use wifi so how does the battery drain? and what is standby battery time? my s7 edge mostly drops 3-4% in 4 hours at night
Finally got my share in MOCHA BROWN
And I must say I am loving it.
Love to me from me.
Jalil Ehsas, 28 Nov 2016Where did you get it? I mean which country?Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Just bought this beast today and it's been nothing but great. Price is lower than elsewhere it seems, having paid $544 for a 64GB dual sim mocha variant.
Screen is great and the 1080p resolution doesn't show itself as a weakness. The phone itself is blazing fast, apps and UI run incredibly smoothly. Camera is not the absolute best but its still really good and capable all rounder. Battery life is too soon to say but drain seems normal for capacity and quick charge is really quick. Sound from the speakers are really nice, similar setup to the HTC 10 if not as refined. Build and in-hand feel is great, nice improvement from the Mate 8 for sure and simply looks classy.
After going to display again n again and I was extremely confused after the note 7 fiasco
My options are
IPhone 7 plus 256 GB
And after researching and watching many reviews bashing mate 9 hype and not so good reviews about camera and head phone out put
Still am going to buy MATE 9
personal satisfaction is the best policy and as far as options are concerned so mate 9 seems to be the best over all experience.
Reasons for me are plenty and I know they are subjective Lieca setup has failed so what if iPhone is all about ora brand closed eco system then Lieca is giant in cameras lolzzzz
Screen to body ratio
Best in class camera but needs proper knowledge to use it to its full potential
Better front camera
Good over all software
Perfect position for finger print scanner and extra abilities
Better stereo speaker outputs
Premium feel and design
64 GB for base model
Dual apps accounts
Metal unibody design
Major bandwidth connectivity
Dual sim function at default if some one is okay with internal storage
And the list goes on for me
Its very little to complaint about but guyz believe me trust only what you see and experience these bloggers and their information is for info purpose and for reference only.
1080p is draw back here but is plus side regarding better performance exclusively for only iphones
Of you van this brand world wide still China is populated with over billion people and this company will still survive with shinning colours.
Peace from Pakistan.
