The handset is packed with front corning glass 3 which makes it very protective. Its body gives a very attractive look because it is very easy to carry and slim device furthermore the screen is a little small because its screen is just 5.15 inches where all other tech giants like Samsung and Apple are working on tall screens smartphones. It has a main menu button also on its front side.

Its edges are packed with connectivity ports in which one edge has audio jack, speakers, and mic while the other one is layered with a secondary mic. One edge had volume keys and power button whereas the opposite is packed with a SIM jacket.

Honor 9 has a metallic and shiny back body in which dual rear camera lenses are marked on the top side whereas with that LED flashlight is present. The rest of the back body is full simple and Honor name is marked in the middle. This kind of back bodies looks better than those who have a fingerprint sensor on its backside.

Honor 9 Camera:

Honor 9 has 12MP +20MP dual camera lens while the front one has 8MP selfie camera. It has some great features like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama while the aperture is up to f/2.2, 26mm, 1/2.9″, 1.25µm. It can record video in full 1080 pixels resolutions.

The handset has many setting options to adjust. You can adjust picture or video size according to the situation. Picture size can be reduced up to 2MP. Capture Mode, Countdown, guidelines, sound,geo-tagging, and many other options can be set via the setting menu.

The picture quality is very good and colors are up to the mark. Aperture 2.2 is used and it has quick autofocus. Night Photography is admiring. It has two option in focus settings. It focuses on the object as well as you can adjust the light.

Hono 9 camera results are extraordinary. Very well detailed pictures with good exposure and flashes of lightning furthermore it works brilliantly even in low lights. The colors, brightness, sharpness, hue, and temperature are well balanced and I just loved its detailing in every picture. Check out the camera sample pictures in Honor 9 Review.

The front shooter has an 8MP lens with screen flashlight. It is perfect for selfie lovers because it doesn’t give us that much beauty which makes you totally different then actual you are. We have seen that these days other smartphones only focuses on the selfie camera while Honor has focused on all points. Check out the camera sample pictures in Honor 9 Review.

Honor 9 Battery and Network Connectivity:

Honor 9 is enabled with a 4G technology with the access of 3G and 2G cellular services. At the moment we enjoy 4G/3G services only but that is also enough. It is also enabled with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

The powerhouse of Honor 9 is packed with a fixed Li-Po battery of 3200 mAh that is not perfect for this kind of device. It has a polymer battery which gives us 7-8 hours of consecutive usage and 14-15 hours of standby usage. Extra usage of 3G/4G and gamings drain the battery very quickly.

Honor 9 Processor:

Honor 9 is the best one in performance section also because it has 2.4GHz octa-core processor with HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset. This chipset is the best one in networking, connectivity, and gaming among all its competitors. One more best point of this handset is the RAM section which is 6GB RAM/4GB RAM. Both variations are the best either it is 6 or 4GB. It has performed excellently in multi-tasking.

Our Verdict:

Honor 9 is an excellent device in all aspects although the price is a little expensive. Its great camera, brilliant performance, and stylish design make it the best buy. Those users who are looking for a flagship device rather than the famous brand’s smartphones must go for Honor 9.
