Huawei Mate 9 Review

Posted on

For bargain seekers who do not require the ideal phone money can purchase, the Mate 9 is a large, quick phone with a reasonable amount of upside down. But if you yearn for the very best, there are a number of slightly more elegant choices than Huawei’s Mate 9.

From a hardware perspective, The Mate 9 is a little of a Greatest Hits of Huawei’s past smartphone attempts. It has got around, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner such as the Huawei-designed Nexus 6P plus a Leica-branded double camera such as the Huawei P9. The Mate 9 additionally runs on the organization’s signature Kirin chip.

I am not gonna beat around the bush–that the Mate 9 is fast. Really quickly. It hastens our standard tests, doing at a level just under that which we’ve seen in the top smartphones in the sport at this time.

The Kirin 960 chipset does not have exactly the exact same name-recognition since Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset, but Huawei successfully fabricated a chip that competes at the maximum level. The Mate 9 runs on 4GB of RAM, that’s the present standard for flagship-level tablets. It can manage the toughest mobile games effortlessly and delivers the kind of daily performance you’d expect from a phone in this price bracket.

Stellar battery life

I almost did a double-take very first time I glanced at the Mate 9’s spec sheet and watched a huge, 4,000mAh-sized battery beneath its hood. At the level, it is among those highest-capacity smartphone batteries I have ever tested.

But battery life is not only about how large your battery appears to be–applications plays a major part in how much electricity a cellphone’s able to squeeze from one charge. Even though the Mate 9 perplexingly does not survive so long as I expected given the magnitude of this battery, it hangs tough with a few of the greatest batteries we have ever tested.

Regular users may expect a complete day-and-a-half of usage, and I guess that heavy users will still have some juice wrapped around prior to bedtime. The Mate 9 also costs quite fast, though you are going to need to use Huawei’s charger if you would like to find the fastest possible cost.
