Reviews for the Honor V9

Honor V9 Review: No Leica Lenses, No Problem
Source: Unbox English
Is the Honor V9 worth its asking price of Php 24,900? We think it is. You’ve got the latest available processor Huawei has to offer, a gorgeous display, dual rear cameras that perform well, and enough battery life to last the day. It’s definitely worth considering. It’s only a couple of thousand pesos less than the ask for the Huawei P10, but we’ll let you decide if you want those Leica branded lenses over the bump up in display size and a tad bit more RAM.

Honor V9 Review

All in all, the Honor V9 is a strong offering from the Huawei sub-brand. It packs a high-resolution display, powerful processor, large RAM, a pair of good cameras, Android Nougat, and a large battery. The only downside is that it’s not officially offered in the country which is understandable considering that Huawei’s offerings like the P10 already have a strong presence in the PH market. If ever you get the chance to acquire one through unofficial channels, the Honor V9 won’t disappoint.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).

86%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
