Great camera, great design, and ghastly software

Huawei P9

from Ars Technica (14 hours ago)

There's just one question you have to ask yourself when considering a Huawei P9: "can I put up with Emotion UI?" For me, that's a big fat no. No matter how much I want to use the P9 as my everyday phone, no matter how fast it is, how beautifully built, or how good its cameras are, Emotion UI is ever... More

There's just one question you have to ask yourself when considering a Huawei P9: "can I put up with Emotion UI?" For me, that's a big fat no. No matter how much I want to use the P9 as my everyday phone, no matter how fast it is, how beautifully built, or how good its cameras are, Emotion UI is everything that's wrong with Android phones.

If there's one feature that will convince you to buy Huawei's P9, it's the clever camera. Two separate sensors let you take gorgeous, native monochrome images and play around with depth of field, not to mention other fun and useful shooting modes. Performance is also one of the P9's strong suits, but otherwise you're getting a fairly iterative upgrade lacking in flagship finesse. Considering its price, the P9 ultimately fails to strike an appropriate balance between feature set and cost.

Sweeter deal if it was just a fraction cheaper

Huawei P9

from Android Authority (4 days ago)

The Huawei P9 certainly ticks a lot of the right boxes. It’s thin, has a decent sized battery, offers great performance and is a good improvement over its predecessor. The problem with the wide spread adoption of Huawei’s smartphones seems to be EMUI.

The P9 closes the gap between Huawei and the competition

Huawei P9

from Recombu (5 days ago)

Huawei is growing up fast and the P9 represents the best that the company can bring to the table right now. It’s not a perfect phone, taken in some very specific directions in certain areas, but the end result is pleasing to look at and pleasing to use.

The Huawei P9 is a great smartphone for photography buffs, with image post-processing being some of the best you’ll find in any phone. Improvements are needed in the power-saving department but, since I have had good experiences with Huawei devices in terms of software optimization, I don’t see this as a deal breaker.

The P9 really is worthy of your consideration. It faced assumptions that with a powerful camera, will come with a sacrifice to overall performance. That is not the case at all. The P9 performs like a champ with a chipset that is looking to dispel the bad reputation, Huawei devices have. Again it’s a beautiful, svelte device that will have people pointing, while questioning you about it.

Great camera, disappointing phone

Huawei P9

from Wired (8 days ago)

The Huawei P9 is almost a fantastic smartphone – it looks great, has one of the best cameras around and comes with plenty of power and storage. But its software isn't quite up to scratch and that makes for a phone that's too often awkward and frustrating to use.

Aiming for the big boys but just missing on software

Huawei P9

from The Guardian (8 days ago)

The build, the feel, the camera and fingerprint sensor are all top-notch on the Huawei P9. It is the best smartphone the Chinese manufacturer has made, and is so close to competitors Samsung and Apple.

The Huawei P9 is the kind of smartphone with a simple design and light body, yet attractive and easy to handle. The capabilities it offers its user in terms of imaging is undoubtedly impressive thanks to the dual rear cameras that produce images that are crisp, detailed, and natural. Plus, its monochrome mode positively adds a bit of drama to any shot.

Huawei Y330 is a very good, solid basic phone, especially for it's price. Pros: -Very well made, good quality materials (unlike some other phones in that price segment), likely to be reliable. -Relatively compact in size (especially compared to many other today's devices, that can't fit even large pockets and can only be carried in a separate bag). -Good antenna, no problems with the cellular signal and other wireless connectivity almost anywhere I go with it. -Relatively good battery life (lasts for up to three days on one full charge in an economy mode, with 3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth off, and when used for calls, SMS, music, and some occasional Internet browsing). -Fast performance for most basic tasks, when not used heavily. -Very affordable price. Only $80 for a brand new phone in Best Buy Mobile. Good luck finding anything cheaper :) Cons: -The main one, in my opinion, is the LACK OF PROXIMITY SENSOR, a feature that is standard even on cheapest touch-screen phones of most other manufacturers (it only costs the manufacturer 1-2 pennies to add it to the device features, but Huawei decided to save money). When you talk on the phone, and take it away from your ear, the screen doesn't turn back on automatically, like it does on most other phones. To turn it on, you have to manually press the Power button every time, which can be very annoying. -No back light for 3 sensor keys under the touch screen. The manufacturer decided to save a couple of cents on LEDs as well. -A couple of minor glitches in the software (e.g., WiFi turns on by itself some time after the device is powered on or rebooted). Overall, with the exception of a few minor drawbacks, Huawei Y330 is a good, well-made, and reliable device, and if you don't find a modest performance and lack of proximity sensor too much of an issue, I definitely recommend getting this device, since the price of $80 is more than adequate for the smartphone of this type.

Great Phone!!

Huawei Y6

It does all I was hoping for. I had an HTC that was crap compared to this phone. The use of operatoion is very easy, the sensitivity was superior, the cameras are great. lots of storage, it rings loud enough, and I have had no crashes whatsoever. Great phone!!

Great phone, not enough storage

Huawei Y6

I would like some apps unfortunately with the preinstalled phone apps from the manufacturer there's barely any storage left. If you want this phone buy an SD card with it. Other than that I love the phone.

You can not see anything in the screen specially in the car. Also mine has a hidden sim card so I can not change phones. I bought it from page Plus cellular.

This phone has everything I could want. It has a really clear interface and everything is very simple to operate. It has many sophisticated and elegant features, and some are simply stunning. This would easily be a 9/10 for me except for one point. When I bought it, on day one I had problems with the browser, which frequently froze, crashed and stuttered, both on WiFi and on mobile data. Browsing was mostly impossible, when it worked, it was fine, but there were many glitches. Chrome is pre-installed, and whilst that worked, it was very slow, even on a 35MBs connection, or over 3G. I contacted Huawei and they said the phone was faulty, so I returned it. The replacement was exactly the same, and as browsing is such an important part of a smartphone, I just couldn't live with it. I have no idea what was wrong, and again, the Huawei helpline was of zero help in solving the issue, so the phone was returned a second time. If browsing worked as well as my old HTC, the phone would be superb, but how can a smartphone not browse? Such a shame.
