I had honor 6 plus its was very good, however it had problems in signal reception. Was that an issue in these phones because i read a couple of comments about the same back then, is this an issue in new models such as honor 9
Honor 9 use ufs2.1 or emmc?
Reference UFS 2.1>UFS 2.0>eMMC 5.1
Looks so much like a GS7. Cover the rear and the front sensor/camera areas and the only differences are chamfered edges and subtle texturing on the back.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2017OP5 have better camera then Honor 9. You can check gsmarena photo compare tool to see the diff... moreOp5 have not that bad camera, but it's way worst than Honor 9 have. You can check real-life pics searching, for example, Google. High iso on op is bad thing.
ZloiYuri, 12 Jul 2017Better camera, better warranty, better availability, sd card support, better design, better so... moreOP5 have better camera then Honor 9. You can check gsmarena photo compare tool to see the difference: OP5 capture more details.
Honor 9 - better design, but OP5 - better materials.
And definitely OP5 has much better software out of the box, and that is not taking community support into account.
Everything else is true.
Plus Honor 9 smaller, and should have crispier screen.
Dual cam looks Strange, like someone peeping or look at on people.

so imo the same...I do not really get the 1+5 bashing...
Incredibly low quality photos in the night. Of course, when you have a 2.2 main camera and 1.9 secondary camera. Why, why, why?!
Why not the dual camera design in the word "honor", I mean the double "o" can be the dual camera, otherwise dual camera is really ugly to me.

Anonymous, 09 Jul 2017> Honor supports QuickCharge 2 It does not. Similar as OP - proprietary charger. Which ... moreIt does. And partly - QC3.0. Take a time to google the reviews. Huawei is good in decision to support not only proprietary own technology.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2017The difference is in the PRICE, djeez.Its obvious u know that right? Thats why I never say the price because both are almost the same but cheaper with the HUAWEI HONOR 9. This is why HUAWEI suck. Release flagships almost same specs but just bring down the price. For me I don't care the price of a smartphone. I just buy any flagship mostly from the very high end premium price ones. I don't care. So HUAWEI shouldn't care for that. The price is already low, why not improve the hardware
Abhi D, 08 Jul 2017While this review tries hard to make Honor 9 sound like a better deal than it is, and look One... moreHonor 8's gpu is faster than e.g. galaxy S5 which started this 5,x" trend. And that phone can still be used adequately today. The Honor 9's gpu is about 3 times faster so what's wrong with that?
The cpu's inside these Honor's is considerably faster then many if not most phones that cost a lot more.
Then these IPS screens used in these phones are really good. Why do you exaggerate the loss of 0.05 inch? You can't even see the difference IRL.
Then your remark about audio which contradict the review/test which literally states: "..All in all, the readings remain very good to excellent..." and as for the Honor 8 its review starts with "...Audio clarity is perfectly clear, nicely loud..." Sure we, end-users, would have liked a system wide equaliser on the Honor 8 but that is rectified with the Honor 9. Again why complain?
Also please stop exaggerating the importance of Android upgrades. The Honor 8 has Android 7 with Emui 5.0 while the new one has the same Android but with Emui 5.1. You can't even see the difference between the 2. In fact I still run the Honor 8's Android 6 with Emui 4.1 which looks the same apart from the app-drawer. Sure, the colours of the notification quick toggles is cyan instead of blue. So what? I couldn't care less for "app twin" and the main functionality between Android 6/Emui4.x is mostly the same. You can make a theme with blue toggles and stick Nova or any other launcher for an app drawer. Also the UI looks great, adheres to Material design (which I personally dislike) and can be customised completely with themes. So if you find Emui 4.x/5.x "old looking" then I wonder what you expect?
In fact I think both the Honor 8 and 9 are great devices with good specs and no misleading or false promises. It even has kept the audio-jack AND Ir-blaster which everybody was keen to add in the past but then took away after users got accustomed to it. And they both have a very reasonable retail price unlike everyone else whom charges near and sometimes even over 900 euro's. Which is completely ridiculous.
