There are few things that a smartphone cannot do today and the P9 is no exception to this.
It is a mobile phone, making calls, sending text messages and keeping in contact with people be that loved ones or work colleagues is core to the P9.
The P9 has a virtual Triple antenna, meaning you do not need to worry about your hand position under different signal conditions, the phone works around you to ensure however you hold it and wherever you are using it you get the best signal and connection possible.
With the core functionality covered, let's take a look at some of the more advanced features of the smartphone.
The Huawei P9, like the P series before, at the core runs Google’s Android operating system which means all of the services you know and love online are available on the phone. Be that GPS navigation with maps, document creation with Google Docs, video viewing with YouTube and much more.
Android 6, Marshmallow, is the version of the operating system that is installed and this in itself brings a very powerful system with lots of capabilities, but particularly around battery saving and ‘doze’ technology which looks to ensure maximum life from the 3000mAh battery in the phone.
Huawei installs their own customizations on top of Android, this looks to give other enhancements and added value to the experience you get when using the P9.
Most of us carry our smartphones with us all the time so security becomes important, protecting our data should it get into the wrong hands. There is software on the P9 that aids in the protection of data but there is too the physical hardware that makes it possible to take further preventative measures.
In the case of the P9, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is what allows you and those with programmed fingerprints to access the phone.
On the go and always on, often means being always online too. Internet connectivity comes via the 4G mobile data connection and WiFi and WiFi+ 2.0 technology will automatically have the P9 connect to the strongest available Wi0Fi network or even a mobile data connection if that is stronger and quicker.
It is on the 5.2” full HD touchscreen display that you interact with the phone. Vivid, with lots of detail, the screen offers a balance of visual impact and battery usage.
Capturing an image be it a particularly crafted shot or one that is taken in the spur of the moment is a great way of remembering a moment, so when you go to capture it you want to make sure it is the best it can be.
Leica Camera Technology
Huawei teamed up with German lens and camera producer Leica in creating the P9 and the rear of the phone has not one, but two cameras.
Both are rated at 12 megapixels and have a dual tone LED flash that accompanies them.
Unlike some other cameras which give a wide angle shot, the 2 cameras here take an image in a different way. One captures a full-colour image whilst the other captures and image in black and white. The powerful internals then blends the captured image together to produce what should be a more balanced and overall improved image result.
There is then, on the front of the P9, an 8-megapixel camera too, ideal for video calls or capturing an image of yourself.
HD and even 4K video recording are possible with the P9 as are lots of image effects and manipulation options.
Video, photos or other important files can be stored on the internal memory or on a microSD memory card slot (model dependant).
All this great technology is built into a chassis made up of aluminium and superior 2.5D glass.
