The Huawei Honor 9 has all the features and specifications you would like in a smartphone. It’s an all-around handset with an elegant design, top-of-the-range specs, and an affordable price tag. Here’s a rundown of its specifications and features.
On the back of the Honor 9, there is a unique glass exterior with a shiny finish, which looks different to any similar phones in its price segment. The glass body is not mirror, it is a reflective layer that diffracts light at many different angles, creating a stunning, eye-catching effect.
In front, there’s a fingerprint sensor at the bottom of the display which delivers a responsive performance. This all-new fingerprint sensor is one of the major upgrades for the Honor brand, as it is typically installed on the back. Having it on the front of the device, below the display, makes it easier to use. Not to mention, it is a very accessible location for your finger to reach when holding the device.
5.15-inch Full HD Display
Another thing that sets the Honor 9 from the competition is that it is equipped with a smaller display. While many of its rivals are expanding the display size just below six inches, the Honor 9 sports a 5.15-inch screen with a 1080p resolution. This small build makes the device is easy to hold in the hand. Although its display is small, it offers a Full HD resolution, providing sharp and clear visuals. Not to mention, it contributes to a better battery life.
In terms of processing power, the Honor 9 delivers a satisfactory performance. The efficiency and speed of its chip, the HiSiliconn 960, is on par with those in top-of-the-line flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 5. When navigating on the home screen or switching in between multiple tabs or apps, you won’t experience any stuttering or slowdowns. Although it’s not the best phone in terms of cutting-edge specs, the Honor 9 still manages to keep up with the best smartphones on the market, and won’t disappoint you when gaming or running heavy apps on your phone.
Decent Battery Life
The Honor 9’s 3,200-mAh battery is a slight upgrade over its predecessor’s 3,000-mAh battery. This coupled with the Honor 9’s powerful and efficient chip results in a better than average battery life. Although it’s not totally cutting-edge, the Honor 9’s battery life can last you a full day with moderate usage, and you will find yourself with a remaining 10% charge when recharging your handset at night.
Impressive Dual Cameras
Situated on the back of the Honor 9 is the dual camera setup, featuring a 20-MP and a 12-MP sensor. The 20MP sensor captures photos in monochrome, shooting in black and white; while the 12MP sensor snaps images in color. The phone’s dual sensors work together to produce images showing great detail, brightness, and sharpness.
