Huawei Mate 9 Pro Review

Score: 9.39/10

Huawei Mate 9 Pro is a totally fascinating Android cellphone released back in 2017, packed with a large 5.5-inches screen, an extremely powerful 2.4 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back-facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front side camera. That's all? No, it's just the shortest summary in the world.

This phone is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 960 system chip, holding a very fast Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2.4 gigahertz with a great 6 GB RAM memory. This cellphone counts with a 128 GB amazing internal memory and even though it doesn't count with a slot for an SD memory card, it is still enough to install tons of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without even thinking about running out of space at all.

This phone is only 5.98 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 5.5" display. This phone is just 0.3" thick, taking it to the thinnest device's category. Huawei has made a really good design job making this device as lightweight as 5.96 oz. Talking about its construction materials, this phone is mainly created with Metal . Huawei sells this cellphone in two different color options, gold and gray.

The Huawei Mate 9 Pro is equipped with two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back side camera and an 8 megapixels front side camera. this cellphone's back side camera has an aperture of f/2.2 so it can take great pictures even in low light situations. It also captures videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow motion videos at 60 frames per second (2 times slower ).

Huawei packed this cellphone with an astonishing 5.5-inches screen, and a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K), which makes all images and videos look vivid and colorful.

This cellphone counts with wi-fi connectivity (although it can't provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) ultra fast internet connection and fast 3G internet connection, over HSPA technologies. The Huawei Mate 9 Pro uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone also includes many great characteristics such as Fingerprint Scanner, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (4.2 ) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone features a 4000 mAh inmense Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Huawei Mate 9 Pro with an incredible battery life. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts losing capacity, while having 4000 mAh you will probably discard this cellphone before that happens.

Huawei offers this cellphone for 775 dollars, which is a very high price for this type of phone. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a device for work, you love taking pictures, will use this cellphone for gaming or want this phone mainly for social networks and internet browsing, this cellphone is the correct option .
