I might be due to terrible connection in your area.
This phone have no 4G-ONLY Mode. Very very bad on this matter. If 2 or 3 bar 4Gs, it is mostly going to 3G mode. Trying to manual select the network also not working.....This is my main hates about this phone. Other is 1 sim + 1 memory or 1 sim 4G + 1 sim 2G. However this phone is really super superb.

And for Android Oreo many reports said p9 will receive Android O
geek.ph, 31 Aug 2017I've been a P9 user for almost a week. I have tested if the allege dual camera scam is true. I... moreGood choice.
I've been using my P9 for almost a year, and I took this phone to travel through Europe and Australia, the camera performance is just simply brilliant.
In my case, if I use it to photograph continuously for quite a while, it'll turns out quite hot; whereas hardcore gaming, it was only a little warm. I think that's because of the cpu has to process the information from both cameras at the same time which causes the heat.
Anyway, I'm extremely satisfied. ;)
For Huawei P9 don't expect any updates from Huawei because they are shockingly appalling in making updates available. It's 1/2 way through 2017, Oreo has been announced yet Nougat is not available for UK users at all. The Hisuite application for UK users does not show any updates, it's not downloadable from their website although ironically a rollback package is ! There's been no announcements for uk users but huawei support insist it's being rolled out in the uk and you're one of the few who doesn't have the update. Maybe they think the public are droids and robots who will accept any old trashy statement but it's plainly obvious on twitter and facebook it just hasn't been rolled out in the UK. So great phone but bad support with zero updates from Huawei.
I have Huawei P9 Chinese version EVA-AL10
I received New update EVA-B396

I have tested if the allege dual camera scam is true. I've covered the one cam and use the other and detail and quality was affected when you zoom in. No overheating issues encountered (not a gamer). The front camera is pretty good in daylight (outdoor and indoor). It struggles though in extreme lowlight condition and it's normal. Monochrome camera is excellent! If colored rare cam is good in lowlight, the monochrome is superb. If only wide aperture is available in monochrome mode... Purchased this for $240 and pretty satisfied.

Simply take 2 photos with one covered the monochrome lens and one don't cover the monochrome lens, zoom-in the photo then you can tell the different.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2017Does the P9 come with a preinstalled screen protector?Yes, mine at least (l09 eu)
A great phone, in my opinion
After using this phone for almost a year, bought at September 2016, here's my review. Camera is amazing, very fast focusing even at low light, the best camera on a phone I have used (my fastest camera is Nikon D7000 + Sigma 30mm f/1.4 but not that pocketable lol). On P9, DOF points selectable after pic taken using Huawei's default gallery. Phone's warm (stable, not overheat) after long use of camera, but so does my all other phones. Updates regularly (7.0 now). Battery drain is okay, charges up to 60% (red to yellow to green in about 40 mins) then slow charges to full. I'm not too particular about charging time but I think the phone has fast charge chip or something (idk im just a user, non techie), so it doesn't need a fast charger. I go to work at green indicator, recharge again to about 80% after 5 hours. I don't game, sorry. Lags a little on certain sites after long browsing, lags gone after I ran the default optimiser. Screen brightness is okay, need 90% or more at outdoor at noon, 60% or less indoor. Speaker is clear and loud, good for Linkin Park, lacks bass for action movies. My only wish for this phone is 4K. Review done. :/
i found something weird, recently when i checked my device cpu info with the CPU-Z app it showed that all the 8 cores are based on ARM Cortex-A53 architecture while gsmarena says that the huawei p9 has 4 ARM Cortex-A72 & 4 ARM Cortex-A53 ...plz anyone do confirm on this :(
Andreas, 12 Aug 2017Which one is better overall? P9 or xperia xz? But sony
Dropped in water.. It is not working anymore and will be thrown away.. it needs new board.. I don't know if all the other mobiles have the same problem!

They ... moreYes they don't but they're super important when it comes to taking pictures with bokeh effect, even high end phones like galaxy s7 takes a few seconds to process a background blurred pic but this phone doesn't because of its dual camera
