Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro The screen manages to display decent quality images
The 5.1" 1080p display is pretty bright and rather decent. Displayed images have warm colours and are pretty sharp.
Pro The battery lasts one day easily
The 3200mAh battery manages to last a full day of relatively heavy use on a single charge.
Pro Offers good performance for a mid-range phone
The Honor 9 has 4GB of RAM and a Kirin 960 octa-core processor which manage to offer performance that's a bit above the average but that's to be expected from a mid-range phone such as the Honor 9. It only shows weaknesses when doing lots of multitasking or playing resource-heavy games, otherwise there's virtually no lag or stuttering.
Pro Very comfortable to hold
The body is only 7.5mm thick and the screen (5.1 inch) is small enough to feel very comfortable when holding and using even with one hand.
Con A case if strongly advised
The back of this phone is made of glass which is beautiful to look at but unfortunately very slippery. A case is recommended unless you want your phone to slip from the table if vibration is on.
Con The fingerprint sensor is in an awkward position
In order to reach the fingerprint sensor that's below the screen you have to shift the phone's position. This is a bit uncomfortable to do especially with such a slippery phone.
