Design and display

Smartphone with a view

Fingerprint sensor

On the back of the phone is a discreet fingerprint sensor, specifically placed so you can naturally unlock the phone using just one hand.


Co-engineered with Leica

Legendary German optics and camera manufacturer, Leica, has helped create the Mate 9’s incredible dual lens 20MP and 12MP camera. Film in 4K, capture impressive shots in low light, and produce professional-looking photos with the digital bokeh effect. 

Front-facing lens

If that’s not enough, there’s also an 8MP front-facing lens for selfies and video calls. Use apps like Skype and Google’s Duo to chat face-to-face with friends no matter where they are in the world. 

Under the hood

Giant battery

The Mate 9 has a ginormous 4,000mAh battery, which is one of the biggest on the market. And with Huawei’s SuperCharge technology you can get a whole day’s usage from a mere 20-minute power up. 

No shortage of power

You’ll never be slowed down when enjoying everything the Mate 9 has to offer, with thanks to the lightning fast Kerin 960 processor. The chip automatically prioritises which parts of the phone need power by learning from your usage over time. And there’s also 4GB RAM built in for good measure.

Huawei Mate 9 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a mate... I'm in love! Bought this phone one month ago and it's great! The screen is a brilliant size, the speakers loud and the camera excellent! I've had Samsung now for the last five years but read the reviews and plunged for this one. Takes a bit of time to get used to and had to fiddle with the email settings but it's brill! Worth a look if you like a big screen (5.9 inches) and a great camera! Battery life is much better than Samsung! Looks sexy too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mate 9 Huawei Brought this phone 3 days ago, love the phone spec, been a Samsung fan last few years thought to change over to Huawei. The only one problem at the moment you not able to open some of the Barclays apps to do online banking, this has caused me frustration has I tend to do my banking on my phone. At the moment there is no fix also no WiFi calling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I gambled. I, like many others decided to buy the new Google Pixel phone, which I have to say, is a great phone, well, was a great phone, until all the problems started. Bit of background info, I have owned iPhones (4,5,6 Plus, 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy's (S3, S4 & S7 Edge) and the Google Pixel. When I decided I couldn't take the issues with the Google Pixel any longer (very low to no sound & microphone un-useable after the latest security patch), I decided to take a gamble and go for the HUAWEI Mate 9. SCREEN & DISPLAY I was slightly skeptical because the screen resolution was 1080p with only a PPI of 373, and since owning the Pixel (441 PPI), I have become a big fan of the very sharp images on my wallpaper. Wow, I was wrong to doubt it! The screen is as crisp and sharp as any other phone I have seen on the market. So, don't let this "specification" put you off. The screen is big (5.9"), but the phone is easy to handle in one hand. It has been great so far to view videos and photos. Really impressed. SOUND The sound quality from the phone is loud and clear. Some reviewers on YouTube state it being quite poor. Rubbish. The only phone that would beat the sound for quality and loudness is the iPhone 7 Plus. When recording a video, the sound is very clear. No need to pump up the volume when viewing the video back. CAMERA Haven't used the camera too much yet but I have taken photos in very low light and the results are good. In good light, the camera is as good as the "best camera in a smartphone" Google Pixel. I'd say the image stabilization when recording a 1080p or 4K video is not as good as the iPhone 7 Plus, but that is the best phone on the market for video recording. I'd say the Mate 9 does a very decent job however. FEATURES This phone is packed full of features. You won't be disappointed. I've spent hours already tweaking things here and there and still haven't been through everything it has to offer. BATTERY The battery is very good. On a day of constant use (from 8am to 10pm) the percentage is at around 30-35% without activating the power save modes. I'd say it's not as good as the iPhone 7 Plus battery but much improved from any other phone I have owned. IN THE BOX The great thing about HUAWEI is the accessories. In the box you get a screen protector that comes factory fitted on the screen and a free phone case. Are you listening Apple? PRO's <> Quality Screen display <> Great Sound <> Good Camera <> Lots of Features <> Fingerprint scanner on the back! CON's <> Not waterproof or water resistant <> No Live Photo/Motion Photo alternative on Camera <> Some might find the phone too heavy. Overall, I recommend buying the HUAWEI Mate 9. For what you get and the price, it is worth it. In the next few years, HUAWEI and XIAOMI will be big in the UK. They are just too good not to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this amazing phone yesterday, it is truly state of the art in all features, screen is amazing and vivid, finger print reader is instantaneous, speed is amazing, would truly recommend it to anyone who is after a elegant, and all round device..and it also comes with the screen protector and a case as standard and a decent pair of earphones, which is very rare these days.
