Huawei launched in February 2018 its recent mid-ranger with high-end features and edge-to-edge display in the form of the Honor 9i smartphone. Honor 9i employs an almost bezel-less screen and 4-camera technology.
Here is the complete Honor 9i mobile review that will let us know if Huwaei has managed to make an impact in the mid-range market with the release of this smartphone:
Honor 9i that weighs around 164 grams and supports gestures is not a selfie-centric phone like of the devices released by its other competitors but a versatile one that offers a great camera as an edge.
Honor 9i has a matte finish back and a glossy black front with a 2.5 D curved glass screen giving it a premium look. An oddly placed LED flash above the dual camera setup ruins the look. The fingerprint sensor is placed ergonomically at the back. Keeping the matte finish back smudge and fingerprint free can be a perpetual task.
Honor 9i features a 5.9-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a resolution of 1,080×2,160 pixels. It holds thin bezels around the screen. The display showcases colour closer to natural tones and does not pop like an AMOLED screen. The reflective glass coupled with the low brightness levels makes it difficult to manage brightness levels outdoors.
Honor 9i has a 4 cameras that can be used for clicking crisp selfies or even portraits. Secondary 2 MP sensors featured on both the rear and front cameras add the necessary depth for a bokeh effect.
The HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset inside ensures uninterrupted gaming experience with the optimal visual quality. With excessive use, the heat level of the device increases slightly not making it evident. The tiny speakers don’t do a great job at noise cancellation.
Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 software layer gives a fluid experience and encourages multi-tasking or switching between multiple applications. It may not be as smooth as Honor 8 but it does a decent job given its price tag.
This device comes in two storage variants: 64 GB or 128 GB which can be easily expanded to 256 GB using the dedicated microSD slot in the phone. The 4 GB RAM can accommodate sufficient applications to get the device functioning smoothly.
A 3,000 mAh battery offers a comfortable day’s usage for regular applications and tasks. It has an average battery life of 8 hours depending on the usage.
Connectivity options include GPS, Bluetooth, WLAN, Radio, micro USB 2.0 and USB On-The-Go.
