I'm in china at the moment, the Mate 9 Pro was just release a few days ago, and believe me, it's been hard to get hold of them! I've managed to purchase two, and have it now. Nice phones. Picture quality is probably better than the iPhone 7, although it's hard to spot the difference. Build quality is top notch. These are Chinese phones I've purchased, really for Chinese market, my EE sim is working fine in it though! It's speech recognition is Chinese only though, my wife set an alarm by talking into it but had to use Mandarin to do that even though the rest of the system is in English. Although that said, it has a very useful feature of being to talk to it in English or Chinese and it will translate. It interfaces with WeChat really well, as you'd expect. Google Play was put on it by the dealer but is blocked in China...Huawei have their own store on the phones. On returning to the UK I should be able to use Google Play. I struggled to buy these as Mastercard and Visa are useless in mainland China! Don't travel to China with those cards! Anyway, I'm defecting from iPhone to this phone for now...we'll see if it works out, so far I'm happy with it.
Oh it's very obvious I can't get one of this phone for Xmas. Soooooo bad.
AnonD-618994, 22 Dec 2016from where did you make your order ? ,, china?Hi,
If you quoted me by mystake, please disregard.
If not, I preordered my ZF3 Deluxe Special Edition, here in France, at www.materiel.net
Knuse, 21 Dec 2016I live in Sweden and it was released yesterday here. I have the 6gb/128gb and I don't think th... moreMany thanks.
Please keep us advised about that point !
'cause I have a Mate 9 wich is excellent, but only with 64 Gb (+ SD)
And i'm about to buy the Zenfone 3 Deluxe "special" Edition, wich is 256 Gb internal storage (+ µSDXC) but has an "old" s821 and poor battery life.
As i preordered, i'll be delivered by january 19th.
BUT.... If your phone, is 128 Gb and does accept µSDXC extension on SIM slot #2, i have to change my mind and cancel my order... before the deadline.
Thanks again, hoping your answer will be "yes, sd card is workin well in SIM slot 2" :-)
Edit : I live in France where the Mate 9 Pro isn't already available.. But it should come out in january.

Knuse, 21 Dec 2016Got my phone today. Love it already! Hi you all, Hi Knuse,
Can you tell us where you'r from, having been delivered so quick ?
Did you order in China ?
Did you get the 128 Gb internal storage ? If so, would you confirm second SIM slot can accept µSDXC card ?
Thanks, and sorry for my english.

there are some solutions for this problem on youtube ,, is that enough to buy this phone ?
AnonD-618994, 20 Dec 2016so where can i buy it :/ Well, it's available in China, Sweden, Denmar, Norway and Finland ....
I guess an import-site is an option too.
please try and include usb on the go like in gionee m6 and 6 plus as to enable us use our usb flash drive on the go i.e anywhere without necessarily carry our laptops all the time. please consider my view, its important.

Knuse, 17 Dec 2016So many people say or claim that the Mate 9 Pro doesn't come with an sd-slot. Looking at the s... moreThe sd card slot option is only for the 64GB ROM version. The 128GB ROM version does not have this feature.
i would take this phone only if the sdcard slot was separated from sim2 slot 😕
So many people say or claim that the Mate 9 Pro doesn't come with an sd-slot. Looking at the specs on this website it clearly states that it DOES in fact do so by using sim-slot 2 ...
"MEMORY: Card slot microSD, up to 256 GB (uses SIM 2 slot)
Internal 64 GB, 4 GB RAM or 128 GB, 6 GB RAM"
