Huawei P9 Plus review


The pressure's on

A phone that looks, feels, and is expensive, the Huawei P9 Plus has a generous dollop of luxury to it. Thanks to very solid battery life it's easy to live with too. However, at this price you can pick almost any phone you like, and we're not convinced...

Huawei P9 Plus preview: Huawei's true P series flagship - Pocket-lint


Huawei has a new champion and it's the P9 Plus. Launched alongside a "regular" P9, it's the bigger of the two devices that might turn more heads. The Huawei

The Huawei P9 Plus offers elements above and beyond the regular model and that should give it some additional appeal. This is a fully-packed handset, carrying the novelty of that dual Leica camera on the rear.

Huawei P9 Plus


After the success of the Nexus 6P, Huawei continued its impressive run with the P9. While its Leica branding was more of a gimmick, the P9 was a great phone capable of rivalling the HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5.

Huawei P9 Plus review


Double the cameras, double the fun - and it'll feel the pressure (-sensitive screen) too

Clever, capable cameras ; Fast fingerprint sensor ; Top-notch screen with Press Touch

Pressure-sensitive screen doesn't have a lot of uses ; You'll need flagship funds to buy one

The P9 was decent, but the P9 Plus goes one better with that gorgeous AMOLED screen and Press Touch - it's just a shame about that eye-watering price

Huawei P9 Plus hands-on review


Can Huawei take on the Galaxy S7 edge and iPhone 6S Plus? With the help of Leica it hopes the Huawei P9 Plus can do the job and here's our first look at the 2016 flagship phone.

If a bigger screen with Press Touch and a bigger battery is what you’re looking for then the Huawei P9 Plus might be a good shout. However, it is otherwise very similar to the regular model so isn’t necessarily worth the addition 150 Euro – the main...

Huawei P9 Plus Review: In Depth


Huawei P9 Plus Review: We test out this 5.5-inch version of the original Huawei P9 & decide if the P9 Plus can stand up to it's rival 5.5-inch mobiles.

Great battery life ; Sleek design ; Capable cameras

Pricey ; Software issues

Huawei’s P9 Plus is yet another 5.5-inch smartphone, a previously niche category that’s rapidly expanding in 2016 with the likes of the OnePlus 3 and Moto G4 handsets hitting UK shelves. Good news is, the P9 Plus more than holds its own thanks to the...

Huawei P9 Review: we Leica this flagship killer


Huawei are getting ever so closer to joining the big boys table, the Huawei P9 is their most recent effort with a great chance to elevate to new heights

Quality design and body ; Lightning quick fingerprint sensor ; Awesome camera

Emotion is still Emotion ; Not the best at low-light photography

The P9 really is worthy of your consideration. It faced assumptions that with a powerful camera, will come with a sacrifice to overall performance. That is not the case at all. The P9 performs like a champ with a chipset that is looking to dispel the...
