Giveaway: Win a Huawei Mate 9 from Huawei and PhoneArena

UPDATE: We have drawn the winner for this Huawei + PhoneArena giveaway. Congratulations to our user Tretas, we're sure they are going to love their new Huawei Mate 9 smartphone!

Huawei has gained a lot of respect in the PhoneArena offices, thanks to its elegant devices with impressive spec sheets. And the Huawei Mate 9 was one of the more impressive handsets we've seen in 2016. It comes with a powerful Kirin 960 processor that delivers great bang for its buck, Android Nougat straight out of the box, and a pretty solid Leica-branded camera.

All things considered, the Huawei Mate 9 is a great phone that delivers the flagship experience we expect from top-of-the-line devices. And thanks to Huawei and PhoneArena, it can now be yours.

  • Leave a comment under this post, outlining your favorite feature of the Mate 9.

Multiple comments will be counted as one.
The winner will be picked at random in a week's time, and contacted by us via email. 

While you wait, you could take a look at Huawei's social profiles on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

So what is the best feature of the Mate 9? For me the full construction of the phone with the FHD screen, the big battery, the Kirin 960 SoC, the great screen to body ratio with the elegant design, the cameras, the Android Nougat on board and the opportunities which can be offered by this smartphone.

I've never owned a device that had a dual-camera setup; would love to give the Mate 9's camera a spin!

Honestly, I really want to try out EUI 5.0! I've tried every other UI (sense, TouchWiz, stock, lg, emui) but I've never tried this one.
