Smartphones have become so smart that we have almost forgotten about the fundamentals of the pieces of technology, the ability to make and receive calls from almost anywhere in the world.
Of course the P9 Plus allows just this (subject to network coverage) and because Huawei, the manufacturer, are responsible for the construction of large parts of the mobile infrastructure, the P9 Plus itself is optimised for connectivity to these networks in terms of signal strength and battery performance.
You can expect a strong performance from the P9 Plus helped by this expertise, intelligent design and implementation of technology such as the Triple antenna. Unlike some phones 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.
Android has quickly become one of the leading, if not the leading, mobile platforms.
Incorporating many of the very powerful Google services on the handset the P9 Plus is capable of document editing, street level navigation, email management and much more.
With full access to the Play Store you can, within moments, install free or paid for apps to your handset and customise the phone in a way that works best for you.
Whether your primary usage is for personal or business there are countless configuration options and tools to make improve your efficiency and communication.
Android 6 is the version of the operating system that is installed. To gain maximum value from this connection to the internet is recommended, and with WiFi and 4G built into the P9 Plus there is no reason why you cannot be always online.
Being online and always on means that the internal battery of the P9 Plus will be put under strain. Thankfully the P9 Plus has a 3400mAh battery which should serve even the most demanding user, especially with the advancements in power saving technologies built into the phone including ‘doze’, a feature of Android 6 which looks to reduce battery use when the P9 Plus is not being used. Huawei even include a few battery modes that you can select to either maximise performance or conserve power.
When you do need to charge the P9 Plus, fast charging technology allows for a rapid boost of power.
Huawei do install their own customisations on top of Android, this looks to provide 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 and security, in turn, becomes important, protecting our data should it get in the wrong hands. There is software on the P9 Plus that aids in the protection of data but there is also the physical hardware that makes it possible to take further preventative measures.
In the case of the P9 Plus, a rear mounted fingerprint sensor is what allows you, and those with programmed fingerprints, to access the phone.
Leica Camera Technology
Capturing images is a great way of saving a moment and obtaining a permanent memory of times past, so when capturing that image you want the best image possible right?!
Huawei teamed up with German lens and camera producer Leica in creating the P9 and P9 Plus and the back of the P9 Plus is home to not one, but two cameras.
Both are rated at 12 megapixels and have a dual tone LED flash that accompany them and an infrared sensor that scans the scene you are capturing.
Using the powerful Huawei built Kirin 955 processor that keeps the phone running smoothly, the cameras' image sensors send a large amount of data to the processor that is interpreted and processed to produce that all important long lasting photographic memory.
The 2 camera setup on the rear of the phone does not offer wide angle shots like some other phones, but instead captures 2 images, one full colour and one in black and white. The capture of Black and White images allows for better light capture that helps define and build the scene, so when processed with the colour image should produce an image you can be proud of.
If selfies is your thing then there is an 8 megapixel front facing camera to capture these.
HD and even 4K video recording are possible with the P9 Plus as are lots of image effects and manipulation options.
As we all do more on our phones we store more, and video and photos are a prime example of this. So the P9 Plus comes with 64GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot (VIE-LO9 mode) to store this and more on.
4G of RAM pairs with the octa-core processor to give a fast and lag free user experience when using the P9 Plus.
Large HD Touchscreen
It is through the 5.5” 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.
Watch your HD videos back in the resolution they were intended for, browse images be that the ones you have captured or the ones online and enjoy the depth of colour and, being larger, you can see and do more.
Superior Stereo Audio Performance
Few now carry a dedicated music player, the smartphone does that job, with a lot being streamed over the internet. Whatever your preference, the P9 Plus from Huawei does not slack here. No cheap speakers or budget components, the Plus is fitted with stereo speakers that are best enjoyed in landscape mode but when used in vertical mode uses the phones earpiece as a tweeter to produce a frequency range up to 20khz.
All this great technology is built into a chassis made up of aluminium and superior 2.5D glass that not only looks, but feels good in the palm.
