  • sunshine

    The battery life, brilliant!!

  • Awesomeguy1234

    One is the beast processor on the phone. It is up there with the A10 and snapdragon 821. Secondly, the battery life is amazing, the fact that it can last you two days means that even if I were to forget a charge, I can still use it the whole day. Third is the speed, which is close to that of the 3t, which means it is one of the best performing phones in the market.

    I would be quite freaked out if I were to get it, lol. It would be such an amazing upgrade from my S2.

  • Alexandra Dixon-Mersh

    The battery life, it’s always an important feature of any phone and this fits the bill

  • Ezany

    Huawei mate 9 is a great phone because of big battery, great dual camera lens (totally love the wide apature mode) and big screen. Also my favorite feature is IR blaster, its great huawei still consider to include IR blaster when most of the mobile phones company removes it. IR blaster is the simplest feature yet one of the useful than any other mobile phone feature. Fast charging capabilities also is a good feature since its the most common issues phone user been deal with. Im one of them. With big battery and fast charging, I believe this phone will be outstanding than any other phones.
