Huawei P9 Plus Key Test Findings

  • There is no 4K video capturing, and the 1080p videos are uninspiring – there is not enough detail.
  • The color rendition and the audio recording are very good, though. You could even use the Leica film modes.
  • The 8MP selfies are very good with enough detail and accurate colors, The screen flash helps, too.
  • One of the best camera setups on the market – the monochrome images are great, as are the regular color ones.
  • The dynamic range is high, the colors are spot on, the resolved detail is more than enough.
  • The low-light images are not as detailed but the ease of use of the long exposure modes still can’t be matched by any competitor a year later after the Huawei P8 introduced them.
  • The stereo speakers and the different sound modes are great, the loudness is excellent.
  • It’s got decent audio quality through the audio jack, but low volume levels.
  • The Kirin 955 chipset offers stellar CPU performance but mediocre graphics power, which may create stutters in games or app switching.
  • Marshmallow with Emotion UI UX is a powerful combo.
  • There are lots of customization options, gestures, and proprietary services to enhance your Android experience.
  • The Press Touch options are really welcome, but Huawei may want to add more pop-up previews in its apps.
  • Battery life is average at 69 hours – the P9 Plus did well across all test, but failed to impress us with its standby endurance.
  • The AMOLED display offers excellent contrast and sunlight legibility, 400 nits of maximum brightness is OK, and the color calibration is very good.
  • Great design, excellent and sleek build, but lacks proper screen protection.
