This new smartphone focuses on photography

Huawei P9

from Reviewed (7 days ago)

The Huawei P9 is a great smartphone with its head in the wrong place. It's not that its cameras and imaging software are bad, but for a device that hangs its hat on photography, it's not nearly as impressive as it ought to have been.

The Huawei P9 is a great smartphone with its head in the wrong place. It's not that its cameras and imaging software are bad, but for a device that hangs its hat on photography, it's not nearly as impressive as it ought to have been. To put it bluntly, the Huawei P9 is not worthy of the Leica branding that it proudly wields.

High-class phablet held back by sub-par software

Huawei P9 Plus

The P9 Plus is the best smartphone Huawei has made to date … if you don’t count the Nexus 6P. It takes the winning formula of the P9 and just adds a little bit to it. The selfie camera is great, the rear dual camera is fun and the look and feel of the phone is top notch. The screen isn’t as crisp as rivals, but is still good looking, while the fingerprint scanner on the back is arguably the best in the business.

Classy mid-range smartphone

Huawei P9 Lite

from Notebookcheck (25 days ago)

Huawei's solid P9 Lite only has to accept a few points of criticism. The plastic back could provide more grip and the camera could offer a bit more quality. However, that is complaining on a high level seeing that the smartphone already makes overall decent photos and videos.

Huawei has been trying to shed its reputation for low-end and mid-range handsets, and the P9 represents a step in the right direction with its technological innovations, features, and above-average realization. The draw is undoubtedly the exceptionally creative and high-quality rear camera, while the solid battery, premium finish and intuitive user interface add to the appeal. The poor GPU, display contrast, and video output hinders the overall experience, but the Huawei P9 smartphone still gets the important parts right.

The Huawei P9 lite is a well-conceived package without serious weaknesses. The 5.2-inch smartphone is sufficiently compact and comfortable, with its 147 gram weight delivering the feel of a solidly crafted phone. The Huawei P9 lite must be looked at with a magnifying glass to identify serious criticisms. Like many Huawei smartphones, perhaps the worst that can be said about it is that it lacks some really stand-out features. Overall, the Huawei P9 lite is a completely solid middle-tier smartphone without much in the way of fancy extras.

Whilst the camera wasn’t as good as the Leica unit on the Huawei P9, the addition of that stylus was something I actually really liked in this Premium model. If you choose the 16GB standard model you do have to realise that there’s no expandable storage and that’s pretty important if you’re a media consumer – something this device is really built for.

An interesting design from Huawei’s midrange area

Huawei G8

from GSM Dome (about 1 month ago)

Huawei G8 has to offer a solid design, good low light capture and a good continuous usage battery time. Other than that it’s just like any other midranger. We can call it a gaming phone and concert phone, on account of the battery, low light performance and microphones.

If you want them all, then the well-made case, stylus and additional storage capacity, is £80 well spent on the deluxe model. Although it's a pity you can't get the storage without the extras, if you don't want them.

There's a lot to like about the Huawei P9, particularly if you focus on its outstanding camera. The Leica-engineered two-camera setup delivers crisp, detailed shots along with several modes that should please more demanding photographers. The trouble is, Samsung's Galaxy S7 phones sport powerful cameras, too — and those devices have enough battery power to put in a full day's work and play.

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

(4 months ago)

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

(5 months ago)

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.
