Huawei Mate 9 Review

The 3-Minute Huawei Mate 9 Review

Big screen, big value

By Zach Riley | September 4, 2017

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4.5/5 ● Value: 3.5/5

The Best:

With amazing performance and remarkable battery life all at an economical price point, the Huawei Mate 9 exceeds expectations.

The Bugs:

Huawei’s own EMUI 5 operating system is polished, but it also has some strange quirks that can be difficult to get used to. Poor photos in low light and an unremarkable display also detract from what is otherwise a quality phone.

Is it for you?

The Huawei Mate 9 is an excellent choice for users who want a big screen with bigger performance at an affordable price.

“Huawei definitely has the potential to turn heads with the Mate 9.”

Meet the Huawei Mate 9

After the massive failure of the Galaxy Note 7, there’s been demand for an Android phone with a massive screen. The Huawei Mate 9 delivers on that front. With impressive performance at a great price, Huawei is looking to capture the attention of a market left disappointed with Samsung’s failed flagship.

The phone’s display, while not as impressive as higher-end smartphones, is large and the battery lasts almost two days on a single charge. Huawei definitely has the potential to turn heads with the Mate 9.

What we like

The biggest draw of the Huawei Mate 9 is its large 5.9-inch screen. While the display is “only” full HD rather than AMOLED (which is featured on more expensive flagship smartphones), it’s a big and beautiful display that gives you a great picture. The fact that such a large screen is packed into a relatively compact body is a big plus. There’s minimal bezel on the phone, which is important considering how unwieldy it would have been because of its large display.

Despite a small learning curve, the EMUI 5 operating system provides a smooth, responsive experience that takes full advantage of the phone's powerful hardware. Additionally, an amazingly optimized battery keeps the phone going for over 36 hours.

A dual-sensor, high megapixel camera leads to some beautiful photos, rounding out the impressive list of features that this affordable phone has to offer.

What we don’t like

While the Huawei Mate 9 does a lot of things right, it has a few flaws. While the display is large, its screen fails to live up to the quality of those found on more expensive phones. While this is forgivable considering the lower price, it’s still worth mentioning.

The camera, while capable of producing some beautiful photos, suffers in low-light situations. With many flagships offering cameras that work well in dark conditions, it’s definitely a detraction from an otherwise great phone.

The operating system is a big upgrade from previous versions of Huawei’s own EMUI system, but it’s still a bit of a struggle to get the hang of. You should get used to it after a few days, but it’s definitely a bit different.

Should you buy it?

We’ve seen a recent resurgence in high-quality Asian flagship phones and the Huawei Mate 9 is no exception. With fantastic performance for the price and a large screen, it fills a hole left by the failed Galaxy Note 7. Budget-conscious buyers looking for a big screen and impressive performance will be more than happy with the Huawei Mate 9.

Despite its minor drawbacks, we’re confident in our positive review. Joining a growing collection of devices that offer high-end experiences at mid-range prices, buyers should take a closer look at the Huawei Mate 9.
