Honor 9 Review

While the Honor 8 represented a pretty big design departure from the Honor 7, this year the manufacturer isn't looking to reinvent the wheel, and the Honor 9 is easily recognizable as an Honor 8 successor. It's got a similar layout, with the most pronounced resemblance occurring around ...

They gave Honor 7 an under-6 rating, I am surprised that Honor 9 got a 8. This Site is very very Biased towards Huawei, if I were Huawei I would avoid any co-op with it. These so called reviewers have no professional standards, their pros and cons are at least 50% based on personal preferences. Speaking of BIASED sites, The Verge is the worst of them all.

Biased against anything that's not Samsung or Apple

It's not SOT, it a synthetic result of PA's custom test. Real screen on time is around 4-4,5 hours.

At least (Not available in the US) is not as a con.

Oddly enough I think I prefer the Honor 8. Better battery life and a rear gps are nice perks to me.

You forgot oe thing PA - Honor 9 doesn't have OIS (unlike his brother - P10) and it shows. More often you'll get blurry picture, especially in low light conditions.

It took Samsung to release perhaps the best phone ever (S8/S8+) to achieve parity with Apple in terms of review scores. And you can be sure the new iPhones will safely exceed that. Its Apple all the way for PA

Would have been much better if they'd kept the FP sensor on the back.

I love the Honor 8's back placement. I agree.

I have the Honor 8 using it on T-Mobile USA and I love it. I wish this phone had the band support. I agree, with everything they said, this phone deserves an 8.6+ when comparing to all phones, but comparing to whom this phone is competing with, a 9.3 is warranted based on what was said about the actual phone not what his personal preferences are.

A great phone. Would have never bought it, but with contract for 12€ the blue one was too tempting. Not sorry i bought it though. Excellent build, speedy, lost of space, great cameras, great reception, solid battery and great charging time. Battery life is lower than othe chinese phones (especially Xiaomi) but i get close to 6 hours which is pretty good. Fingerprint is blazingly fast, nothing quite compares to it. It just unlocks the phone immediately every time. For the price of 350-400€ would say quite a good deal overall. Surprised! Just get the blue version with a transparent case and tempered glass and you should be fine!
