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.

AnonD-488454, 25 Apr 2016I checked, I'm not sure I see any significant difference?First video at (4:18), Look carefully, The car stop for some seconds then continue. I am not sure if "stutter" is the right word for it. I use Google translator.

Second video, from (3:29) to (3:40), P9 running Real Racing 3 smoothly.
The question is why??
For anyone who's interested, here are two more video comparisons to show performance in daily usage.
P9 vs S7Edge (with 8890, not 820)
You can see the P9 has an advantage in loading apps and games (especially games), but falls behind in retaining apps in the ram after opening a lot of large apps.
The S7E also leads in scoring benchmarks and bootup/shutdown times but it's up to you how meaningful those things were (not that meaningful to me).
P9 vs LG G5 (820)
Here the P9 continues to show its advantage in loading apps and games, the G5 had to reload apps just like the P9 and therefore could not catch up with the score.
how come this phones battery life is worse than s7 which has a 2k display?

Arengium, 24 Apr 2016I know that. Just wanna make sure actually. And his reply confirmed that.You p9 fanboys just wanna jump to conclusions like "No he does not agree with me so he is a troll" Wow Hypocrite much ...! Not everyone needs to agree to what you have to say or give you a proof of anything.LOL
However I just wonder how bl!nd you fanboys have become to just ignore the traditional performance benchmark tests.
Why do you even come here to read the reviews?
If you dont even believe in what they have in reviews .All you guys are doing is just taking what ever you like from the reviews and giving excuses for the things that you dont like.Wow so dont be a hypocrite ...Grow up and also try to accept the weaknesess along with the strengths .that is a sign of a wise person.

Of course he can't tell you what exactly does he do with his phone where the P9 "will be a huge let down", because if he did, it could either be disproved or disregarded. But as long as he stays obscure about it, he could avoid dealing with facts and logical arguments, and you could never prove him wrong. That is the basic survival skill of a troll.

But Mr Yang Yuanqing (do you even know who he is?) was clearly nowhere near as optimistic as you were in his recent interview. I guess you also didn't know that their mobile department just went through major restructuring since August last year when they experienced dismal Moto sales and big overall losses? They are still in the process of recovering from that in 1Q16.
In other news, do you know that Xiaomi has to resort to adding ads (many of them cannot be turn off by users) into their phones and other hardware products to keep revenue numbers? This has already caused major user uproars in China but I guess you also have no idea. They run on very thin margins regarding their hardware which means they could become desperate despite still having seemingly large sales numbers.
Stay ignorant, and you can keep laughing.

See I know you really wanna know what all I do with my smartphones ,However no one here needs to tell anyone what all they do on there smartphones to make a simple comment on a underpowered performance of p9.
If You still cant understand a simple word called "power user" you are free to google it up to know what it is .LOL
Its quite visible from the tests that p9 lacks behind the compitition..but yes i understand you just wanna feel good abt P9 which is "ok" for me .But you can expect everyone else to feel the same.

Btw ... moreAnd the reason I say it's useless because simply, there's no fact to back up your claims. You keep telling me you're a power user and you have a lot of experience when it comes to handling flagship phones. Yet, you still haven't provide me with your experience so how would I believe you. And personally what I experienced from my phone already convinced me that benchmark scores don't really reflect real life experiences. Don't need to find reviews and such on the internet, which so far, all of I've watched shows that the performance is on par with S7 an G5.
