Huawei Honor 9 review

 

A beautiful blue bargain, the Honor 9 embarrasses the competition with its cool camera and flashy design.

Beautiful design ; Superb camera ; Fast processor ; Compact body

No U.S. 4G LTE bands ; No water resistance ; Slippery

Why pay more for a flagship cameraphone, when the Honor 9 takes pictures just as well, sometimes even better, for less? That’s before seeing the great looking screen, and swooning over the stunning design. Give it an official U.S. release, and we’ll be...

Huawei's Honor 9 wants to take out the OnePlus 5

 

A portrait mode for selfies gives the midprice Honor 9 a little something extra.

Honor 9 Smartphone Review

 

Flashy. As with its predecessor, the Honor 9 compels at first sight with its flashy design of dancing light reflections on the back. But is this all just smoke and mirrors, or can Honor's new flagship also convince with its dual camera and fast...

very good price-performance ratio ; very pretty, stable case ; fast operation with many options ; dual-SIM capable ; USB-OTG ; extensive configurable software ; fast WLAN ; accurate GPS ; sharp camera images ; bright display ; high system performance ;...

slow eMMC flash only ; quite a lot of preinstalled bloatware ; relatively few LTE bands ; quite high heat development ; throttling under longer loads

Yes, that is life with beautiful daughters: sometimes the mother can become jealous. At least, Huawei does not make it easy for its P10 flagship to stand up against the slightly slimmed down Honor 9. For over 100 Euros less (~$118, depending on the...

Honor Note 9 features a Vision display

 

Huawei and Honor smartphones will feature full-screen display : Many 2017 smartphone models feature a completely new design, small bezels and large screens are the trend for this year. The displays even get names, like the Samsung Intinity display for...

Also the Huawei Mate 10 is expected to arrive soon. Huawei's CEO already confirmed that Huawei's upcoming smartphone will feature a full-screen display.

Honor 9 Review

 

While the Honor 8 represented a pretty big design departure from the Honor 7, this year the manufacturer isn't looking to reinvent the wheel, and the Honor 9 is easily recognizable as an Honor 8 successor. It's got a similar layout, with the most...

Very strong value, especially compared to recent Huawei phones ; Day-long battery life ; Satisfying camera experience ; Exceptional performance for where this model is positioned ; Sleek, attractive design

Slippery to the point the phone feels destined to break ; No waterproofing ; Speaker fidelity needs some tweaking ; Display, while bright, could stand some color calibration

Honor 9 review: An affordable flagship-class smartphone

 

Honor, a Huawei brand, has been steadily chipping away at the mid-range smartphone market for a while now. Last year's Honor 8 earned our praise, while earlier this year the bigger Honor 8 Pro also impressed.

Fast and well specified ; Good battery life ; Aggressively priced ; Eye Comfort mode for easy viewing

Awkward and unnecessary knuckle gestures ; Superfluous (but easily removed) pre-installed apps

Honor 9 Is a Sparkling Beauty We Want in the US Now

 

The Honor 9 offers flagship specs and a gorgeous all-glass design to go along with its dual cameras. But will it be worth the wait?

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

 

Honor 9 review: High-end flavour at a sensible price makes this upstart a sensible alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 for many.

Very good value ; Striking high-quality design ; Lots of storage and features

Camera just OK in low light ; Unremarkable battery life

The Honor 9 has dua cameras on the back linked together as a team, and as usual there’s a single selfie camera on the front.

Honor 9 review

 

The fully-featured Honor 9 has the price to match the attention-grabbing style

Eye-catching design ; Responsive performance ; Expandable storage ; Multi-functional dual cameras ; Excellent feature set

1080p screen looks overly sharp ; Music lacks finesse ; No waterproofing ; Shiny finish is all too easy to scratch ; EMUI Android customisations are a little cumbersome

With features you’d expect from a more expensive phone, the Honor 9 has usurped OnePlus as the de facto high-end smartphone for anyone on a budget - even if overall performance is good rather than great.
