I notice on the screenshots that app icons are all made into a square (see Chrome icon for example..the Chrome icon has a big white box around it)
Can this square box be removed from the icons without installing a 3rd party icon set?
A great phone basing on specifications and design, but I'm wondering... How many informations are correct basing that Huawei tried to imply that the phone makes some amazing pictures that were actually made by a DSLR. :-?
No doubt the pictures were being improved but precisely its not LEICA OPTICS, its just LEICA ENGINEERED OPTICS, the lenses were not produced from Leica!
This phone seems to be rather nice. However the only thing that is stopping me from buying it (and yes I know its petty) is the navigation bar and the inability to hide/auto minimise it :-(
From what I can workout this has been an issue on other Huawei phones but there is a hack for them. The only hack I have found for this phone is to root the phone and permanently disable the bar
I disagree on gsmarena's about the P9 Audio ... it's Loud , louder than my Nexus 6P , my HTC 8/9 and oppo r7 plus. with its DTS audio , this P9 Rocks !
Does anyone know the audio recording quality during video recording?
I would like to know if it can handle clearly a video recording of a live concert or loud sounds.
(My Nexus 5 sucks so much in this)
huawei is doing it the same way as apple....or almost....it praises usability and user friendly interface rather than huge top notch perfomance. Right now you don´t need all that perfomance.
if huawei keeps improving this way, it will be n1 world manufacturer in less than 3 years.
This is a fine peace of art, I would buy it if I had the money to spend. Right now, very happy with my honor 7.
Am gonna buy a new mobile but am really confused between huawei and iphone SE.
Pls help :)
khpirani, 09 May 2016Hi all.
is this phone dual sim active.?There is P9 Premium Edition which is DUAL SIM, coded as "TD-LTE EVA-AL10"
This version supports 9 UMTS bands and 17 LTE bands, which is a lot more than the AL19.
If I buy this phone it must be the Premium AL10 edition.
beachletter, 24 Apr 2016For anyone who's interested, here are two more video comparisons to show performance in daily ... moreOf course Exynos 8890 will have a better real life performance than the kirin 955, however the snapdragon 820 only beat the other two on benchmarking figures, but on real life performance sd820 cannot even touch kirin 955.

If you know photography, like shutter speed, aperture, iso etc you should get P9, may be you can get a dark picture to have enough exposure without blur and noise. For the rest of us just stick to the s7 and s7 edge this year, you can never go wrong... P9 pictures tend to be underexposed

A bit disappointed the CEO said the next phones will be QHD. A lot more battery drain and for what benefit?
The P9 is weak in camera and video capability compared to most other flagships and for that reason I would not buy it. Next model will probably bring higher video capability.
