Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 21 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • 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
What we didn't
  • 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)
