It seems most people think you are clueless. Nice that you believe otherwise. Ignorance is bliss.

Because you tell me, what flagship battery has less than 365 charge cycles? That is effectively what you are saying. That you need to charge a phone every day and that after 1 year the phone needs to be plugged in most the time.
To add, my real life experience with a G3, Z10, 4s, HTC desire and original ipad (from 2010, which is still used by my wife) says otherwise.
I'm quite sure that most people have experiences with their phone more in line with my experience than what you claim.

You begin by mentioning real-life life performance and then immediately switch the discussion to overclocking, which is something nobody can do with smartphones because the clock rates is locked in. Get real.
Also, in the link your provided the P7 gets beat by the S7 in all tests and the G5 in all tests except one.
Also, from the P9 performance link you provided:
"The flagship chips from Qualcomm and Samsung will remain undisturbed at the top for the time being."
AnonD-507785, 16 Apr 2016Read the review mister. No matter what you throw at it right now, it won't make it stutter. An... moreWhat nonsense are you talking about. The P9 has far from stellar performance and the summary in the review say it all:
1. The Huawei P9 isn't an all-rounder, and this should have become clear by now. Instead of being a collective of all the latest technology, the P9 focuses on a FEW key features and excels in them.
2. It fails to deliver a punch in the graphics performance test, and it can't even record good 1080p videos, let alone 4K ones.
3. The Kirin 955 chipset offers stellar CPU performance but mediocre graphics power. It runs cool for most of the time. (NOTE: Most of the time is NOT all of the time.)
4. The Galaxy S7 has the looks, offers better performance, and water-proofing. 5. The same goes for the LG G5 - innovative modular design, top-notch performance

3 current "big dogs" S7, G5 and HTC 10:
S7 (too small screen, not enough battery capacity and sealed unit, sound average).
G5 (screen and battery not good enough again, though modular, decent sound).
HTC 10 (screen, battery cap, sealed unit).
Would be nice to see a phone, that does all that, but it looks like an out of reach challenge for now. And make sure you'll be ready to fork out $1200/€1000 for it. Because they are cutting some corners, to make the price more appealing.
Any company who;
-Puts removable battery (we all know that after 1 year, any battery doesn't hold the charge and owner becomes addicted to chargers-power sockets). No need to cheat users anymore. We are not discovering a new thing. World is spherical!
-Battery between 3500-4000mAh
-MicroSD card slot
-SD820 / 8890 grade processor
-At least 4GB RAM
-Good quality audio output with decent loudness (at least 0.7-1VDC range)
-Good quality OIS equipped camera
will achieve the mission of building invincible Android!
Just take out any 1-2 items and you will have a LOSER.
AnonD-213493, 17 Apr 2016And just take out the china share of huawei than you guys will know what is what :)
And don't... moreSorry but you obviously didn't read industry reports. Xiaomi has been doing pretty horribly in 2015, and they missed their sales target by at least 30%. The downward trend continues into 2016 Q1 where Xiaomi is now falling behind even Oppo and Vivo in the domestic market, not to mention Huawei which has a comfortable lead over every other Chinese brands (in units sold). They could make a bit of a comeback later this year with better qualcomm chips available but it will be hard to take back the market position that they were once in.
As for Lenovo/Moto? They're also in a dire situation, probably direr than Xiaomi, as their market share continues to drop like a stone and they still struggle to re-establish an influential product-line. Their product strategy has been a disaster in the last two years, and I don't think they have found a clear path to get out of it yet. The Lenovo brand is fading away from the mid-to-high-end market and the Zuk brand is not getting much traction. The Moto department is still in chaos. Ever wondered why Lenovo/Moto is missing from the recent flagship show-offs? They don't have the resources to do it as fast as other manufacturers after all the internal struggles, that's why. The Zuk Z2 is probably the only high end phone coming from them in a few weeks but it is unlikely to turn things around by itself.
In summary, Huawei and Meizu are the two major winners in the past year. Vivo/Oppo are doing well but they lack growth potential because their sales rely too much on offline channels and heavy marketing, both of which can't be expanded or improved easily at a global scale. Xiaomi has had a bad year and will continue to face harsh competition, but at least they will still survive within the mainstream. Lenovo/Moto is at risk of dropping out from the mainstream market just like HTC, if they don't find a way to change things fast.
the iphone 6s 16gb is nowhere near the same price as the P9
on vodafone which im with the P9 you can get for £30 a month with no upfront price
the ever so always overpriced iphone is £36 a month and £139 upfront at its cheapest.
Never ever compare any iphone price to any other phone please as the inferior internals of any iphone never compare to other less priced phones

He is out of his minds

I don't know how this Parag guy's brain works, but I don't think he ever watched the performance reviews on YouTube. Probably his internet is a "slouch" which explains that he never bothered to watch them. Or maybe he's just a geek who always sticks to numbers and datas.
AnonD-507785, 18 Apr 2016Wait for P9 Plus. They clearly left out some things to put them in Plus version. And that's why it has the plus moniker. Duh.
AnonD-213493, 17 Apr 2016What reality? that majority of shares huawei earns is from China?? .. The shares they earn is... moreI suggest you dig a little bit deeper for the information my friend. The only success, that Xiaomi can record for now, is in the Chinese market. And they've been surpassed by Huawei last year. Also unfortunately Xiaomi cannot compete with Huawei on the international arena, simply because they don't launch their products worldwide. Sure, you can import the phone, but if anything goes wrong, we're talking about minimum 3 months of waiting for it to return to you. And if you are in EU area, you know, that sending something abroad, with built in battery is a pain in the a$$ (which can result even in destroying the device by customs). A lot of people are being put off by that alone. Would be nice to have Xiaomi officially here in Europe though. Perhaps one day.
Kirin CPU has beaten the other flagships in benchmarks. Its just GPU where other flagships do better. The GPU has been confirmed by all reviews to work perfectly fine for high end games and hence the benchmarks scores are irrelevent to 99.99% of real world users and concern only to pre matured folks on internet wanting to show off antutu scores or worry more about numbers than actually enjoying the phone. Think about it, doesn't take a genius for Huawei engineers to have figured putting more cores into the Mali GPU like Exynos does with thrice the number of cores, but instead they chose 4 cores intentionally for a good reason. If Kirin jumped the GPU with 8 more cores, the benchmark would have crossed the Snapdragon and Exynos easily.
Huawei is on the same league as Apple and Samsung using their home made chipset for their phones unlike HTC or Xiaomi.
AnonD-100398, 18 Apr 2016Just cause I have pointed out that p9 is a slouch in performance which you did not like and no... moreNope. It only tells us, that you stuck so much on benchmark numbers, that you won't even make an effort to understand what people are trying to explain to you. That's as close minded as it gets. Fine. You like Snapdragon with Adreno. I get it. You care about a peak performance, not sustained one. I hope you'll enjoy frying bacon on your GPU. And you keep using one word - "slouch", like there are no other words in the dictionary to describe lowered performance, which tells us another thing. If anything is "slouch" here, is your learning and understanding processes (I hope you will get it, I've tried to use your favourite word). Just try to grasp the idea, that some people have different opinion, it's not a wrong one, it's just different.
