Honor, the sub-brand of Huawei, has gained a lot of attraction in the recent years. Despite being mid-range devices, Honor smartphones feature powerful features. Honor 9i is the latest addition to the Honor series devices. It is the first smartphone on the market with full vision display and four cameras. The key attraction of this phablet is dual camera setup on both sides. Here is a brief overview of the Honor 9i that will help you to decide whether to buy it or not.
Amazing design: The Honor 9i comes in a black-coloured metallic unibody with premium 2.5D curved glass display cover glass. The bezel-less design with 18:9 ratio structure and a shiny body gives it a premium look. The fingerprint sensor is present at the rear side.
Brilliant display: The Honor 9i features a 5.9-inch IPS LCD with a screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels (Full-HD+), which results in crisp and clear images. The phablet contains an on-screen navigation bar which looks decent.
Outstanding configuration: Placed upon a HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset, two Cortex A53 Quad-Core processors with 2.36 GHz and 1.7GHz clock speed manage the performance. The processors are accompanied by a 4GB RAM and Mali-T830 MP2 GPU. The device delivers a good quality performance while handling multitasking.
The excellence of dual camera: The Honor 9i features four cameras which mean dual cameras are present at both the rear and front sides. The rear has 16MP + 2MP setup and at the front 13MP + 2MP setup is present. The added 2MP sensors at rear and front setup are included to capture more brightness and produce better quality pictures. You can shoot Full HD video recording at a speed of 30fps using your smartphone.
Underpowered battery: The Honor 9i comes with a 3,340mAh Li-ion battery which is not enough for daily usage if you are a heavy user. The phablet consumes more battery power as the device has a large display.
Bulky size: While a large screen is a treat for watching videos, carrying it along might not be a comfortable deal for everyone. The Honor 9i features a massive size of 5.9-inch. So, one has to use both their hands to control the smartphone, besides the discomfort it creates while carrying in the pocket.
The Honor 9i is a powerful smartphone loaded with strong features. What makes it a great choice is its affordable pricing. The Honor 9i is one among the most affordable smartphones available with 18:9 ratio, which is a synonym to premiumness these days. Moreover, if you are a photography lover then this one of the best devices to carry along.
