Huawei Porsche Design Mate 9

 

The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 is a phone you probably won't buy. Most people shouldn't even consider it. Why? Well, because it costs over £1,000.

Huawei Mate 9

 

The Huawei Mate 9 is an unashamedly big phone, and that's becoming an increasingly rare thing since the demise of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. For the albeit pricey RRP of £600 you get a huge screen, beefy battery, brand-new CPU and plenty of storage and...

Huawei Mate 9 review: The big-screen boss?

 

The Huawei Mate series did big-screen before big-screen was even fashionable. Now that it's an increasing norm, the Mate 9 finds itself the focus of greater attention than its predecessors - and for good reason. What might come as a surprise about the...

A well-built big-screen device, huge battery for longevity (around 16-hours of proper use), decent dual camera arrangement (with optical stabilisation), dual SIM and twin-app support

Pricier than previous Mate models, only has Full HD screen, Pro version (China only) is so much nicer, EMUI 5.0 is ultra-strict with app permissions and persistent in notifications

What might come as a surprise about the Mate 9 is just how much it's like the Mate 8 - and we were expecting bigger changes, the kinds of changes we've only got to witness in the Mate 9 Pro and special edition Porsche Design models.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 review

 

The best phone you probably shouldn't buy

Fancy design ; Great cameras ; Mammoth 256GB storage ; Loads of power

Insane price ; Not water resistant

A true rival for the best phones around. As long as you don’t look at the price.

Huawei Mate 9 review

 

The bigger the better?

Great screen-to-size ratio ; Gadget-packed camera ; Seriously powerful CPU and GPU

Not as striking as some rivals ; Battery spec is better than real battery stamina ; AAA price

A geek-pleaser Android phone with serious power and huge screen, in a surprisingly manageable body

Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design preview: The mini Mate 9 with a big €1395 price tag

 

You had a double take, didn't you? No, this isn't a limited edition Samsung Galaxy S7 edge , it's the limited edition Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design. What can we say? Despite the bonkers price, the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design is a lovely looking phone....

Huawei Mate 9 review

 

A nice kind of déjà-vu

Incredible battery life ; Powerful processor ; Solid build quality

Higher price than expected ; Emotion UI still strange ; Not as Daydream-ready as hoped

The Huawei Mate 9 is a phablet that's built to last, with an impressive camera, powerful processor and great battery life. It's just let down a little by a larger price tag than we've come to expect from the brand.

Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design review

 

A premium phone at a beyond premium price

Innovative camera ; Beautiful design ; Great QHD AMOLED display

Ridiculously expensive ; Emotion UI drags experience down ; Fingerprint sensor = fiddly home button

When is a great screen, strong performance, a fine camera and a desirable design not enough in a smartphone? When it comes with a ludicrous price tag, like the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design.

Huawei Mate 9 review

 

Huawei has come leaps and bounds in the UK market in recent years, bringing many of its smartphones to Blighty. Recently, the company took to the stage in Munich to show off the latest in the Huawei range, the Huawei Mate 9. We've spent some time with...

Huawei’s Mate 9 is, in our opinion, the best in the Huawei line-up, boasting an impressively large battery alongside powerful internals, an improved dual-camera setup and a sleek, gorgeous design. The benchmark results were some of the best we've seen,...

Huawei Mate 9 review

 

So you've got to send back your Galaxy Note 7 before it explodes , but you still want a high-performance giant phone in your pocket. Come and check out the Huawei Mate 9.

The Huawei Mate 9 has more power than you'll need, a camera that's great for arty shots and a battery that won't quit on you by dinner.

Its screen is only full HD and its design is utterly forgettable.

It doesn't have the flame-prone Note 7's beautiful lines and curves, but if you're after a high-performance big-screened phone that won't set your pants on fire, the Mate 9 is a great option.
