All About Huawei p9 Pros

As a new Bee into the Huawei P9 SmarthPhone, first you are likely to noticed about the P9 as great . The design, while attractive, isn’t groundbreaking, but the rounded edges make it very comfortable to hold and use. With a 5.2-inch screen, it has a great size overall.
Its IPS LCD screen is very effective, it also keeping things sharp and easy to see. It isn’t as bright or as colourful as better screens in phones like the Galaxy S7, but it is definitely on par with the iPhone 6s. Colours are a little muted and it definitely doesn’t have the brightness of the S7, which may impact use in bright sunlight a little.
This may be a technological limitation of the screen, but it may also be a deliberate decision to help improve battery life for the P9, and if it’s the latter than we can report that the approach is working. In unison with a large 3000mAh battery the P9 easily gets through a busy day’s use, and get push well into a second day between charges.
Another thing is that Huawei use an internally designed Kirin processor in its devices, including the P9, and though you might not be familiar with these computers, you will be happy with the results. Benchmarking apps report that the P9 performs similarly to the best Android phones today; a little slower, but not far off the mark.
You may notice that some of the most taxing applications may stutter a little where the developers have no optimised the apps for the Kirin chip, but these examples are few and far between.
For photography, Huawei has taken a left turn and attempted something that no other manufacturer has before, with a standard rear-facing camera and a monochrome lens beside it. With this setup, the idea is that the colour camera does what you would expect it to do, and the black-and-white camera develops the details, with the output from both cameras merging in the final image.
This system has been developed with legendary camera company Leica and the results are generally pretty good. Photos looks rich and warm, and details in the darker elements of the images stay sharp. There is quite a bit of noise in all of our photos though, regardless of where and how we shot them.
The image processor gives the photos a slightly ‘unreal’ quality too, as though all of the post-processing has happened without your input. For point and shoot shots, this is good, you’ll get vibrant photos without much effort, but serious photographers, especially those with a passion for the Leica name, might find this a tad frustrating.
Happily there is a middle ground, with a pretty robust ‘Pro’ mode setting available. With this enabled you can manually adjust the shutter speed, the aperture, and you can set manual focus and exposure points in the photo.
