Features, Performance, and Reviews for the HUAWEI P9

HUAWEI P9's size

The HUAWEI P9 is 28.0 in (71 mm) wide, 57.1 in (145 mm) tall, and 2.7 in (6.95 mm) thick.At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands.In the case of the HUAWEI P9, it weighs about 5.1 oz (144 g).The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the HUAWEI P9, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of HUAWEI P9

The HUAWEI P9 has an extremely high processing power of 2.5GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The HUAWEI P9 has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The HUAWEI P9 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

HUAWEI P9's storage capacity

The HUAWEI P9 has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the HUAWEI P9 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

HUAWEI P9's screen

The HUAWEI P9 has a 5.2 inch screen.The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the HUAWEI P9 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of HUAWEI P9

The main camera of the HUAWEI P9 has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The HUAWEI P9 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of HUAWEI P9

The HUAWEI P9 has a relatively large battery with 3000mAh.The HUAWEI P9 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of HUAWEI P9

The HUAWEI P9 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
