Very elegant handset very powerful in my opinion
I like the design as well very awesome
Currently have the P9 after defecting from LG and I love it. Would I jump to the P10/plus? I'm not sure there is enough to make me want to jump?
I bought mine because I didn't want to carry two devices: camera and phone. The Leica lens is still a learning curve for me however my photographs are good enough to post as corporate photos on my site.
Huawei software is good and has quite a few good apps but then I get bored and upload Apex for variety but that's what Android is about. Open Source.
I want rear finger print recognition. I loved this on my LG G3 and prefer this to front facing types.
Stereo speakers would be a nicety but in all honesty, if you are really into music would you use a smartphone anyway?
I love the fact it has Gorilla Glass 5 and not 3 and screen protection as - for the very first time of having a smartphone - I scratched mine! One of those portable torches has rough casing. Left in my handbag and..... NOT a happy Bunny!
Is being faster than the P9 going to make me jump? I don't think so. Mine is super fast without lag and tbh, the figures represented in the tests are for the geeks. As a basic end user, I'm happy with what I've got.
Colours of the phone? Mine is grey/pink but covered in a Spigen case as I drop my mobiles quite often. Who doesn't cover theirs in case that is more personable?
So would I change mine to either P10/plus? I don't think so. Even though I'm STILL on Marshmallow 6.0 an upgrade would not make my P9 more any better in terms of what I need.
How long will it take before the price reduces? its 750Â€ here in the Netherlands, and it comes out on April 14

Huawei produces very good quality devices totally in par with the rest of the competition. The price of the device is reasonable comparing to other flagships. Only OnePlus keeps it more real with 500Â€ flagships.
Dearest hardest earning money.This is an absolute fact!? $900+ money is too much for this upper midrange smartdevice with reference to the GSMArena review,its disclaimer,and the strong rivals such as Xiaomi and Samsung with much more better less expensive products!!! In a simple language,a person can buy 4 Mi Max for the whole family rather than buying this Mini Mate or at least if person is able buying P10 plus!!Sorry to say than buying an expensive doesn't always mean buying better!!Sometime ago absolute majority could have one Huawei products but not anymore even by a giveaway,....Justice Rights.Omid12Omidvar.Just supports facts and hopefully GSMArena too.
So Im obliged to go with a larger device if I want a better camera I guess I'm gonna keep my p9 till p11

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery as they say.

C... moreYup, updated already to .158 firmware...Yes, the low light improved from previous version, but not that much. Focus a bit blurry and shaken, noise still present but have been reduced a bit. Trust me, S7 and Iphone 7 still make the best low light picture out there.
Its not like Samsung and LG created a bezel less phone on a 5 inch screen. They both are instead phablet size screens and LG G6 with a 78.6% screen to body ratio is only a tiny bit ahead of Mate 9 with a 77.5% ratio.
I was seriously considering this phone to replace my s7, however, 2 reviewers have confirmed that there is no oleophobic coating on the screen if you remove the factory screen protector. This may only applicable to review devices but until Huawei or someone confirms it, I will wait for s8.
Maybe someone in GSMArena can find out?
Sometimes I fail to understand how a gownup person can choose his/her daily driver smartphone based only on camera performance??!! Most flagship cameras are on per with each other and most average users will just be fine with the cameras. Difference between the flagship cameras is so minimal now days, so it boils down which Phone is an All rounder smartphone. And this is the point where I respect the mighty Mate 9! Because it's an All rounder smartphone.
