guglez, 25 Jan 2017I saw this phone in the shop. The screen is terrible! In reminds me the laptop screen from 90'... moreThat phone was faulty, have a mate9 for 3 months now, performance is superb, screen is cristal sharp, and camera is great.
hothunksekyu, 11 Mar 2017373 ppi? oh gawd and at that price range? when all other flagships begin at 500 ppi, at least.... moreI switched from 5.96" 1440x2650 to Mate's 5.9" 1080x1920 and while the higher-resolution one had some advantage while browsing websites (more content visible), I'm not having any issues using just a FHD-screen again.
373 ppi? oh gawd and at that price range? when all other flagships begin at 500 ppi, at least. not very good Huawei. just like your built-in batteries for tablets or removable ones for your low-end to mid-range mobiles, they're all rubbish. lol.

It's like manufacturers deliberately made their phones bogged down by using their own OS. Are there any studies or links that prove using stock Android makes things faster?
Interesting thing... The Kirin 960 has the big cluster as 4 stock A73 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz with about the same performance in Geekbench 4 single core as Snapdragon 821(which has also 2.5GHz) and 10% more performance than Exynos 8890(2.3 GHz)... and Snapdragon and Samsung have "custom cores"... that means that there are no custom cores, just marketing...shame Qualcomm and Samsung
guglez, 25 Jan 2017I saw this phone in the shop. The screen is terrible! In reminds me the laptop screen from 90'... moreWell I am not sure because I am using this mobile after visiting several display Centre and found absolutely no problem with the display of any demo mobile there
Similar is the case with the one I am using it's absolutely perfect may be you got your chance with faulty mobile
Try some where else
And as far screen is concerned so it's vivid bright with excellent contrast only downside is it's on the cooler side but that is a very very small issue and can be fixed from the setting according to your own taste
Viewing angels are superb and watching any content on this large beautiful screen is awesome experience
And as it's 1080p only so battery consumption is also good
So in short it's really one of the best screen right now if not the best in it's own class.

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2016I'm still not convinced with the result of faux bokeh and the usefulness of dual camera.Then go and check your eye sight you troll what you are doing here by the way
I saw this phone in the shop. The screen is terrible! In reminds me the laptop screen from 90's. It has very long response time so if something is moving on that display it looks very blurry! It's very easy to notice. I have no idea why only on a few websites you can read about that. Am I the only person who can see that? Or that phone was faulty?
Hello, I have the mate 9 and have been facing the following issue :
During a phone call with person 1, if I receive a 2nd phone call -----> person 1 can clearly hear the incoming waiting call tone/alert as if he was using my phone and receiving the call. I would like to say that I face this issue only when using the headphones, I tried several headphones other than the ones supplied by Huawei themselves and I still face the issue.
I did the factory reset several times and have the latest software update, but still no fix.
Any help please ?!
JackTheIPhoneKiller, 21 Nov 2016Just imagine this exact same phone with exactly the same specs running Pure Android! Then go buy pixel or moto etc some of us actually specifically me i like heavily skinned ui. Man if stock then whats difference in ios and Android for consumer .Android is famous because of that, that every manufacturer can have completely different look and feel of software to be recognised in masses
Please gsmarena do camera review again many sites did and found great improvements with latest firmware especially in low light
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2016Average display and battery for 700Â€? Thanks,but no thanks thats what i think about iphone, avarage phone for 1000euros ,no thanks
Pure respect to Huawei and kudos to them for making this master piece I own mate 9 and iPhone 7 plus and I am confident enough that I have the best of both
Mate 9 is one beast mobile almost next to perfect
But my iPhone 7 plus mate black 256gb is always there to prove its own identity in its own way.
Peace from UAE
Haidar7, 20 Nov 2016i can confirm that it is not available on the Mate 9. and that was one of the things i did not... moreThanks for the reply.
I one of those guys who has their phone/wallet/smokes on the table when out drinking/eating and used to double tap phone to look at time or notification I may have not paid attention too, now picking up my phone to do that has become another one of my fist-world-problems haha
Dearest.What else can I add to this complete review!!Nevertheless,if it is not pricey,it is going to have good shares of markets because of its some distinguished qualities mentioned in the review!!Any news about the price makes the waiting decision makers decide faster!!!Omid12Omitted,....
JackTheIPhoneKiller, 21 Nov 2016Just imagine this exact same phone with exactly the same specs running Pure Android! get over it man.
some of us like customizations. Besides pure android vs heavily skinned OS was a big deal on lower powered devices in the days of 1GB Ram phones.
These days most flagship phones can handle the heaviset OS without breaking a sweat.
besides you can always put a custom ROM
