Huawei are flooding the market with flagship level phones, currently they have the Mate S, Mate 8, P8 Max, P9, P9 Plus, Honor 7, P8, Honor 6 Plus and the Honor 6. With so many brilliant options can anyone really begrudge them HTC's space at the table?
ferrtape, 07 Apr 2016What a A Beautiful Design. But, at this price point it should be 2K screen and Waterproof like S7i quite agree with you regarding waterproofing and sony is better than samsung in that feature IMO.
Jason melling , 07 Apr 2016Same tired old interface though, they need to upgrade this emui interface. Also Huawei phones... moreWrong, 3rd party launchers run well on EMUI 4.x with no issue at all. I have been running Nova for a long time and so did many other people. Check xda-developers for user reports.
The only thing is that if you want material design icons without rounded square boarders (like those in stock android) you have to download and install 3rd party theme pack.

adi.mane1, 06 Apr 2016"Change the way u see the world" Looks like Huawei has borrowed this tagline Oh wait It... moreactually that line has been used by optical companies forever. i believe it was an optical masters commercial in the 80's which started using it, probably older then that. after all before cell phones wouldn't eye glasses be changing the way you see the world?

Wait the reviews,the last time they also overhyped the camera of the P8 especially its low light capabilities,revolutionary RGBW sensor,and the "light painting" feature!?Well,altough good camera on its own,P8 failed behind its direct competitors.
Guys,I know that phones cost much more in the EU region, so how much will these phones convert to in US$ outside the EU region
SDKforLumia, 07 Apr 2016Both are really good phones let down by their prices only. Yes, agree. Huawei going the Samsung route by charging high prices and expect market to absorb it. Time will tell if it can achieve it.

What good is a 2K screen on such small dimensions? It does absolutely nothing but add a little bit of sharpness and a whole lot more CPU/GPU and battery usage. It is simply not worth it.
I think the choice between a supersharp screen and a less sharp screen with much more battery life isn't really a choice.

"Leica designed three modes - Standard, Vivid Colors and Smooth Color, which promise to recreate the Leica film camera experience (you even get a Leica shutter sound)." I thought there were Leica optics in camera too.
XdaDevX, 06 Apr 2016Woow Huawei P9 NICE ... But am bit disapointed :( With P9 Plus (MAX) no 2k screen .. Basi... moreIt has more battery capacity and has IR.Blaster.. I'm disappointed cause i want ir blaster in the standard version cause my hands are small :(...
Very good phone, everything amazing, but just one flaw, and that is not forgivable. GPU . While gsmarena says 1080p is not due to lack of processing power, it is. Actually the gpu in s7 is MP12, and P9 it is MP4. P8 GPU was even inferior to helio x10 which is used in 160 dollar redmi note 2.
For the guys who dont know much about leica, they produce one of the most expensive lense ever..thats Why i think the price is sooo damn high despite of the device itself..but im not really agree about the price, u can have a mate 8 and buy urself a real DSLR tho..i guess honor series should be their savior again
huawei consumer site stated "Signal+ 2.0 ... The Huawei P9 is the smartphone with a virtual Triple antenna" @gsmarena could you please test that and how it affect the signal.
