My Smartphone has my life on it and I use it for everything. There are so many different types to choose from that I was spoilt for choice when my Samsung finally gave in a couple of weeks ago. Huawei made a huge impact in the market with their reasonably priced Smartphone range. They proved themselves worthy of playing with big players like Apple and Samsung by presenting us with some magnificent mobile technology. I decided to spoil myself with the new Huawei P9 and quite honestly I am glad I did. There are a few reviews online that praise the wonderful dual camera benefits and also a few negative comments about the phone speed and performance. Discarding all the bad reviews I unboxed my phone a week ago and here are my honest observations.
The look and feel of the Huawei P9
With a sexy and smart appearance the Huawei P9 is right up there in the looks department. The thin and sylphlike build of this phone makes it easy to handle and carry around anywhere. It looks fantastic in white and the 5.2 inch display makes bigger definitely better. The screen display is crystal clear and watching my favorite series on the way to work is a pleasure with HD spoils. The phone is versatile but as with any Smartphone don’t drop it on a tiled floor or any hard surface for that matter.
Convenience of the Huawei P9
I am used to my Samsung Smartphone and interface so it was a bit risqué to buy a brand that I wasn’t familiar with. I thought it might take me days to get comfortable with it, surprisingly it didn’t. I fell in love with the fingerprint scanner to unlock my phone which meant less wear and tear on the power button. A fingerprint scanner that works instantly instead of having to swipe 5 times is what you will get with this phone. And the battery life is fantastic with a 3000mAh battery. The Huawei P9 is simple and very convenient to use.
Reinventing mobile Photography
This is by far the best feature of the phone. I snap pictures all the time, call it my inner photographer or just an opportunity to keep memories alive. I was looking forward to the Dual lens camera setup that put the Huawei P9 on the map. Needless to say I got more than I bargained for. The photographs are crystal clear and crisp with two 12mp lenses. Ten out of ten for this!
Operating system and performance
I tried using an Iphone before but wasn’t too keen on the software, I am just an Android fan and prefer it because it is a bit more user-friendly. The Huawei P9 runs the latest version, Android marshmallow and all of my favorite applications run correctly and without any hassles. With 2.5GHz Kirin 955 octa-core processora and 4GB RAM, Android marshmallow working like a monster.
The final verdict
I love the Huawei P9 and believe that it is a great bang for the buck Smartphone offering high specifications and a lot of performance packed into a sexy and user-friendly package. Yes, there were times where applications took a bit longer to open but considering the gorgeous photographs, the convenience and the amazing video the Huawei P9 gets my stamp of approval.
