Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Stylish, premium design, and striking aesthetics - curved-edge metal frame with both front and back glass - with a 15-layer "light-catching finish" for the back that plays with ambient light in a way that looks great!
  • Very good, bright display
  • Huawei's EMUI looks good, and a has an iPhone-like app-drawer-less interface
  • Very good speed/performance
  • Superlative rear camera with a dual lens setup - overall, one of the best cameras on a smartphone - and comparable to the very good camera of it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Good front camera, too
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Good battery life - should get you through the day comfortably - although not as good as it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Fast charging support (full recharge in under 100 minutes) - although again not as fast as the "dash charging" on OnePlus 3
  • Incredibly fast, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Excellent build quality and handling
  • Exceptional, high-end design - the Huawei P9 feels like a piece of jewellery in hand
  • That along with the compact and lightweight chassis makes for a standout design
  • Very good display - among the best IPS displays out there
  • The P9 continues the improvement of Huawei's Emotion UI on top of Android - it is very intuitive and easy to use, but still has lots of tweaks and customizations settings that will please everyone
  • The Kirin 955 chipset offers stellar CPU performance (although graphics performance is below expectation) and runs cool for most of the time
  • The P9 has one of the fastest and most accurate fingerprint readers
  • Excellent (Leica) dual camera setup - the B&W samples turned out great, while the regular ones are flagship-worthy too
  • Especially good low-light photography options, far ahead of any other smartphone at present
  • Very good front camera too, with enough detail and accurate colors
  • Good battery life, especially standby endurance
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Video recording quality could be better
  • While the phone performance is pretty good, it doesn't hold up against the top performing Snapdragon 820 phones that rule the market currently
  • Fails to deliver a punch in the graphics performance, so high-end games will not run as seamlessly as other flagship devices
  • No 4K video recording, and even 1080p videos are below par - there is not enough detail, and the samples look like they have been upscaled from 720p resolution
  • No support for quick charging (unlike most of its competitors)
