Gamers, photographers and design gurus. They aren’t as mutually exclusive as we thought. After all, you’ll find ‘em all united in lusting after the P9.
Genuine all-rounder flagships are a rarity. But the P9’s different. Very different. It’s compact, has a vibrant display, great battery life and a great camera system co-engineered with Leica. And the deal’s made even sweeter thanks to the P9’s smashing looks. We’re in love, we really are.
Call us shallow but we do care about how our gadgets look. And the P9 has us smitten. The 5.2in Full HD display’s encased in an aviation-grade metal body that’s understated and classy, yet striking and it’s compact enough so you can use it without worrying about dropping it.
The P9 looks good, feels good and works as smoothly as butter on a teflon pan. That’s three checkmarks in a row!
We’re sure you know all about the P9’s novel camera system. Co-engineered with legendary camera-maker Leica, it’s a twin-sensor-based system. What’s so good about this camera that we’re constantly raving about it? Plenty.
For starters, one of the sensors works in monochrome and captures more light. This gives you ‘real’ black and white photos with the kind of gradients and shadows you’d expect only from a DSLR. And it also captures a lot more light, making your low-light photos come out cleaner, crisper and far more vibrant.
And that’s just the start of the P9’s appeal for photography enthusiasts - it’s got a Hybrid Auto-Focus system, a full manual mode, RAW shooting, special Leica film effects… Let’s just cut to the chase and say it like it is - this Leica camera system’s reason enough to get the P9.
Gamers and movie fans, don’t get restless. There’s plenty for you. There’s 32GB storage (expandable), along with Huawei’s world-renowned RF tech that gives you great download speeds even as your friends complain about poor cell reception; a unique Wi-Fi ranking system; a speedy-as-lightning fingerprint sensor…
On the performance front, there’s a Kirin 955 processor. This 64-bit octa-core processor runs fast and cool, giving you class-leading multitasking and gaming performance while thoroughly spanking the competition when it comes to battery life. And yes, there’s 3GB RAM - which means you can swap across apps in a jiffy without that annoying lag other smartphones have.
But there’s more that makes the P9 the smartest choice in handsets. First up, Huawei’s EMUI 4.1 (based on Android Marshmallow) is a gem of an OS. It’s light and is designed for speed. Customisability? Usability enhancements? Special power saving tech? And good looks to boot? Might just be the best version of Android there is.
And finally, Huawei’s come up with a special ‘VIP Plan’ for buyers of the P9 - it gives you a two-year warranty and three months of breakage protection for the display. Now ain’t that smart?
