Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design Review

Score: 82.7 / 100

Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design is a brilliantly built cellphone released in January 2017, featuring a huge 5.5" screen, a great 2400 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, and 2 cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. That's everything we have to say? No, it's just the introduction.

The Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design is only available in color black. This device feels much lighter than what you would expect from a device of this size. This phone is only 5.98" long and 2.95 inches wide, but it is still able to fit a a 5.5" screen. The Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.3". Regarding its design, this device is made with Metal .

This cellphone includes a great 5.5-inches display with a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, making everything look amazing.

This cellphone comes with a great Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2400 megahertz, packed into the HiSilicon Kirin 960 chip and a great 6 GB RAM memory. A great point of this cellphone is the 256 GB large internal storage memory and though it doesn't come with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without even thinking about filling the device.

This cellphone offers wifi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices acting as a router or modem), 4G LTE-A , the fastest data connection and fast 3G connectivity, over HSPA technologies. The Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design has dual SIM cards so it is able to use 2 different phone numbers in the same phone.

This phone features two cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front camera. Its back-facing camera has an aperture of f/2.2 so it can shoot clear photos even in dark situations. It can also film videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow-motion videos at 60 frames per second (2 times slower than normal videos).

This cellphone uses a 4000 mAh large Li - Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design with an amazing battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, whereas with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this cellphone before it becomes a real problem.

This cellphone also includes a lot of useful characteristics as Fingerprint Scanner, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth (enables communication with other cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

If you want a device for work, want this cellphone to take plenty of photos, will use this phone majorly for social networks and internet browsing or will use it to play games, this phone is definitely a great choice .
