Pocketnow just uploaded a excellent review of the p9 camera on youtube.
Also see XEETECHCARE's speed test on youtube between 4gb S7 edge and 3gb P9, with p9 neck and neck or even beating the S7 edge.

Huawei for more good mobile that is, by not bringing the playstore native and EMUI layer has serious problems with notifications that models like the Ascend P7 Mate onwards until 8 does not arrive.
Notification of problems whatssap, periscope and several other important applications.
The problem is that Huawei does not provide solutions, upgrades are scarce.
Having a mobile premium hardware with these errors irritating notifications, so I do not buy more Huawei although the mobile hardware and aesthetics like me.
A cell phone that goes half price has no such problems.

Huawei have recently stated they will be using 2k screens in the future and haven't been doing so because the gain is not enough for the extra toll on performance and battery life. Which is true. Unless you compare a fhd to a 2k screen side by side you would never notice the difference in every day use. Apart from the added lag and depleting battery. There is still no reason to go 2k under a 6" screen. Most companies - Samsung, LG, Sony - use it because they don't want a contender to get one up on them - it's an accepted gimmick. 99% of people who look at this phone won't be worrying about the screen res - just 1% of people - if that - want it because they think it's better not because it is better.

USB-C has more potential, it can transfer audio better (replaces 3.5mm headphones jack) and is more durable.

Tcool, 04 May 2016Oh it is really fantastic. Very smooth, no lags. Camera quality is a charm. Fingerprint senso... moreLooking like a real game changer for Huawei... I think it's the best looking device so far this year. Gotta love a slim design and a quality build.. I think there are so many haters because Huawei genuinely have made a bit of a "Wolf" to scare the "Sheep" that always buy the same brand. I'm waiting for a P9 plus but both look genuine contenders for anyone wanting a change from Samsung/Sony/LG/Apple..
still no 4k recording in huawei phones..where is 2k display..still huawei using full HD display where others using 2k.....this processor is not capable to encode decode 4k recording..what a shame for a 2016 flagship device.
Amazing phone, very sleek in design and lightweight.
Camera is nothing like any other its outstanding .
The hardware of the camera is great but the biggest let down is the camera software optimisation. As far as the hardware is considered the camera on this phone is capable of shooting way better pics and videos than what it does right now.
The camera quality of this device is ultimately dragged down by its improperly implemented camera API. I just hope someone releases a custom ROM for this device with better camera API.
Other than the processor too is a big let down, I still can't understand how a processor with such a high number of Cortex-A72 cores still not able to encode and decode 4K media. Just where the hell those truckloads of processing power being wasted. Even a old Snapdragon 801 processor supports 4K encoding and decoding why can't this new powerful processor do that?
In response to the guy who claims overheating issues... The reviews of the P9 have stated no overheating during benchmark tests... I've handled the P9 in a couple of shops both been on retail demo's all day, they were both cooler than the S7 and Z5 premium which were similarly set up. The latest incarnations of Snapdragon and Exynos processors both are reported to have 30-40% throttling due to overheating after less than 0.5 hours of use!
