Anonymous, 19 Apr 2016Why is the performance a huge let down? It will be slightly better than the Mate-8 Kirin 950 ... moreso for you even a low grade chipset from MTK will do.Right? Dude p9 is priced and made to a flagship grade device but the only thing which is a huge let down on p9 is chipset and gpu with rather limited capabilites.
Arengium, 18 Apr 2016Hey Nishru I'm with you man. I don't know how this Parag guy's brain works, but I don't think ... moreWow thats good! You P9 fanboys want everyone to think that p9 is one of the best performing smartphone even though its far behind the compitition ignoring all the facts .then let me tell you not everyone is a fool to support what you think.Ofcource its a great device but the company did a bit of cost cutting in terms of performance.thats all.No one needs to be genius to understand that.

Anonymous, 19 Apr 2016What nonsense are you talking about. The P9 has far from stellar performance and the summary ... moreEhhh...another anonymous troll.
1. I've never said it's an all rounder. I mearly stated the fact, that its hardware is good enough to have a decent device experience.
2. It doesn't fail, graphically it performs as well as other flagships in a real life experience (but we all know you're after benchmark numbers). Just okay 1080p video and no 4K? And? Their focus was on photos, not video. They've made that clear since the announcement of collaboration with Leica.
3. Yeah...unlike Snapdragon and Exynos with Adreno, that's throttling after short stress use. I'll take Kirin, thank you.
4. Performance is relative (you want peak, I want sustained). Also...worth noting, that entry price of flagships is £100+ more than what Huawei is asking for. You want *bling*, I want value for money. We both win in our own way. Just because someone has different opinion, it doesn't mean its wrong. Get that through your thick skull, boy.

paulh67, 19 Apr 2016Anybody knows: does the p9 have wireless charging? Can't find it anywhere...no wireless charging on the P8 or removable battery is what i've read.
paulh67, 19 Apr 2016Anybody knows: does the p9 have wireless charging? Can't find it anywhere...No wireless charging and fast charge.
Winner or loser, 19 Apr 2016Unfortunately I haven't seen any iPhone, Samsung phones who can keep up with its first battery... moreFair enough. I guess I use my phones moderately with mostly communication apps and web browsing and maybe a hour of gaming but not every day.

Anonymous, 19 Apr 2016I pretty much stopped reading what you said "after 1 year battery doesn't hold the charge any ... moreUnfortunately I haven't seen any iPhone, Samsung phones who can keep up with its first battery during a full 2 years of warranty without any charging problems. After 1 year, almost all of them give soul and doesn't hold the charge overnight. Of course if you don't use your phone heavily, it can go on for around 2 years (even I charge once a day, 2 years of battery life is too optimistic and never seen such long life yet). But typical smartphone user who use Facebook, Twitter (who charges overnight and in the midday) kills the battery typically around 1 year. So, after 1 year, you need to send your premium phone for battery replacement (with a PREMIUM cost!).
Unrepleceable batteries are THE UGLIEST FACE OF CAPITALISM. Don't tell me about IP68 etc. stuff, it is BS.

From the description, the software give the photographer a lot of manual mode options and filters to get quite creative.
It will be interesting to see what people are able to get out of it.

Searching on Tom's Hardware for "Huawei P9" co... moreBoth sites which I have mentioned have reviews of Kirin 950
And Kirin 955 is a modified version of 950
So reviews of one would give an hint of how well other performs
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2016Good hardware, very good software but software is bad. It doesn't look like it is running Android 6.It is Marshmallow. Maybe you don't like the Huawei UI?
Anybody knows: does the p9 have wireless charging? Can't find it anywhere...
IF you're in North America it looks like you won't get the P9:
