Reviews for the Huawei Mate 9 Pro

Review: Huawei Mate 9 Pro

The most remarkable aspect of the Mate 9 Pro is that Huawei thinks it can sell an NZ$1400 Android phone. That could be a sign of confidence or it could be overreach.

Huawei Mate 9 Pro is a wonderful conclusion to the Mate 9 series, meeting the market's demand for a premium twist on all recent flagships. The sole existence of the Mate 9 Pro leaves room for the original Mate 9 popularity to grow and thus sell better by being the more affordable and mainstream model, without giving up on any important features.

All-in-all, the Huawei Mate 9 Pro is a fantastic phone any way you look at it. It’s beautiful, very powerful and comes with a fantastic camera and a large battery. Simply put, it's the best Android phone released in the last few months. Priced at AED 2850, it’s definitely not on the cheaper side- but I don’t think Huawei wants it to to be. It’s a premium product meant to compete with the best and it succeeds.

Huawei Mate 9 Pro Review: Upping the Ante
Source: Lowyat.net English
The Huawei Mate 9 Pro is definitely Huawei’s best device to date – next to the even more extravagant RM6,999 Porsche Design Mate 9, which shares many of the Mate 9 Pro’s features. In its own regard, the Pro is a very sleek, very premium smartphone, and it excels in many areas that make for an excellent overall performer.

Huawei Mate 9 Pro Review: Probably The Best Android Phone Right Now
Source: Forbes English
Whatever the case, Huawei's phones are going to be among the first to experiment with these features. Until then, the Mate 9 Pro is the best the company -- and almost everyone else -- has to offer.

Huawei Mate 9 Pro preview: The Mate we wanted all along
Source: Pocket Lint English
There's a current catch though: the Mate 9 Pro is only coming to China. At least for now. We suspect a savvy Huawei will release it worldwide to greater reception than the larger Mate models. If, that is, Samsung doesn't have something to say about the way it looks…

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.
