Honor 9 review: A more attractive and affordable P10


Ten months after the presentation of the Honor 8, Honor is back with its successor. The Honor 9 was revealed in China on June 12, and now it has made its international debut at a launch event in Berlin. With a striking design, hardware inherited from...

Design ; Everyday performance ; Price to quality ratio

Hardware and features inherited from other phones already on the market ; Lacks optical image stabilization

The Honor 9 is nice to look at and to hold. The brand has done a solid job with the design, though it doesn't seem entirely unique: it's reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy line. The hardware is inherited from the Huawei P10, you can be assured in terms...

Honor 9 review


Lacking innovation, but still a great buy

Attractive design ; Affordable price ; Great performance

One speaker driver ; No optical image stabilization ; Heavy bezel

The Honor 9 offers a lot of what the high-end flagship phones do right now, but for a much lower price. There’s no exciting, headline-grabbing feature here, but a great design, fantastic performance and lots of nice touches make this an all-round...

Honor 9 review: Can it topple the OnePlus 5?


The Honor 9 goes head to head with the OnePlus 5 but can it go one better?

Attractive price ; Speedy performance ; Gorgeous design

Battery isn't as good as OnePlus 5 ; Camera not as good as OnePlus 5

For most folk looking to pick up a phone around the £400 mark, I’d still recommend the OnePlus 5 for those reasons, or the Moto Z2 Play for a phone with better battery life but the same price. However, if you pick the Honor 9 for its slick looks and...

Honor 9


The Honor 9 is one of the most affordable phones that looks, feels and acts like a top-end mobile. It even beats the OnePlus 5's price.

Honor 9 review


The best sub-£400 phone in the world - no contest

Top performance ; Flashy design and quality build ; Outstanding price

Ordinary battery life ; Camera struggles in poor light

High-end hardware at a middleweight price makes the Honor 9 one of the best phone deals around

Honor 9 Review: Watch out, OnePlus


At just £380 in the UK, is the Honor 9 really the affordable mobile we've all been waiting for? We find out.

Great battery life ; Smooth performer ; Compact and shiny ; Smart software

Fragile back ; Jittery video

The Honor 9 is a great-value handset that offers a similar flagship experience to most other premium phones, yet with a greatly reduced asking price. Sure, you don’t get any jazzy HDR visuals or a ridiculously sharp Quad HD screen - and most users...

Huawei Honor 9 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Hoping to appeal to Android fans looking for an affordable smartphone, Huawei has unveiled the Honor 9. It has the looks of a premium device and features a dual-lens camera. But can Huawei's new flagship mobile hold its own against expensive...

Honor 9 review: A beautiful aurora in your pocket


The Honor 9 looks great and performs well. The screen isn't the best we've seen and it's not the most weather-resistant phone around, but for the money it's tough to beat.

+ Great design ; + Strong dual-lens camera ; + Affordable

- Not water resistant ; - Screen only 1080p ; - Battery could be bigger

With the Honor 9 you get a whole lot of phone for just £380 – or a likely similarly affordable price on contract.
