Huawei P9 in the Test

For his newest top model P9, Huawei cooperates with the German specialist for optical Leica. Not much can go wrong, or? Connect has tested the Huawei P9.

At the P9, Huawei provides while the newly developed twin camera in the foreground, but the compact and elegant design, which get only Huawei in this form is much more important in our eyes. Because despite a relatively big 5.2 inch display, the Smartphone is small and pleasant light with 144 grams only 145 x 71 x 7 mm. Most other devices with this display size are thicker (Galaxy A5), broad (Lumia 950) or severe (Xperia Z5). That the P9 is a closed aluminium Cabinet, will take anyone, however, of the stool, who already knows Huawei – the Chinese are finally known not to be stingy with metal.

The P9 is but the first Huawei model in the back at the edges is rounded. This is a Design kniff with the Smartphone manufacturer have finished so far only the display glass on the front page – the iPhone 6 is the most prominent example. The P9 are gently rounded front and back and not only ensures an elegant appearance, the P9 is so extraordinarily well in the hand. The precise workmanship meets the highest standards. With the P9, Huawei shows a upper-class Smartphone, which loosely can absorb it in design and feel with the stars of Apple and Samsung.

High dynamic range

The resolution ranges from 1920 x 1080 to 5.2 inches for a sharp representation. The luminosity is located for an LCD in the midfield while, a particularly low black value but provides excellent contrast especially in a bright environment – the display is on a beautiful summer day so better than most of the others. The connect contrast chart however also showed that it is not stable under perspective, the readability in an oblique perspective so disproportionately suffers. Our measurements also show that of the sRGB color space is extended, particularly in the direction of the Green spectral range.

A corresponding color cast is so may be visible, but not a problem, because Huawei is one of the few manufacturers that implement an adjustment of the color temperature in the system settings.

When the processor, the Chinese for the first time put on the Kirin generation 955 was manufactured in the 16nm-FinFet-plus process, which suggests high performance with low energy consumption. In our test the system (Android 6.0 with the latest EMUI version 4.1) responded accordingly afloat, apps started very quickly. The performance limits you will be the eight cores (arranged in a big. LITTLE-Architektur 2.5/1.8 GHz) can bring currently difficult. The P9 conjures graphics-intensive games and benchmarks – the traditional weakness of Kirin-chip sets – tack on the screen.

Memory 3 GB is more than enough. In benchmarks, the Kirin 955 is that clearly behind the top chip sets from Samsung (Exynos 8890, Galaxy S7) and Qualcomm (Snapdragon 820, HTC 10) positions, but these rankings reflect not the everyday and are interesting only for nerds.

Also of note: the C-USB connector and the rear finger print sensor, which perfectly works and can be used again as a touchpad in EMUI 4.1. Thus, you can pull down the status bar and wipe in the Gallery to the next photo. You can find more clever tricks of operating in the system settings under the entry “Intelligent support”. Especially liked the ability to turn the Smartphone at a predetermined time and again has given us, so you can switch out about every night for a few hours completely the device. It is in principle a banal software extension – however implemented by most companies.

Not last long

Recognition earned the fact that Huawei has managed despite the compact construction using a huge 3000 mAh battery, is significantly longer than with its predecessor P8 (2600 mAh) and also her place across gripping above average. Unfortunately the Chinese are unable to translate these good endurance performance capacity: in our standard mix of uses, the P9 achieved a runtime of only 6:04 hours, what is clear under the average is between seven and eight hours of oscillates. Our detailed measurements show that the power consumption under load is higher than average, suggesting that Huawei has the energy management of the new processor generation still not one hundred per cent in the handle.

But that’s only speculation. The fact is that it comes with the current software just over the day, almost all other smartphones in this price range hold out longer. Small consolation: because the supplied power supply unit has a high output power of 2 amps, the P9 is completely filled after about one and a half hours.

The radio properties not convince all along the line. While the P9 on the LTE network well secures the note, it is enough in the UMTS network only to a commodity and in the GSM network to a satisfying. The acoustics is inconspicuous in a positive sense.

Double good camera?

At the P9 take both lenses with 12 megapixels, f2. 2-aperture and focal length of 27 mm. The difference: A sensor images takes up normal in color, the other exclusively in black and white. The trick behind it: Because the black-and-white sensor not to color information must care about, he can capture more light. If you now do a color photograph, the image information of both sensors are summed up what a particularly realistic colours, aimed on the other hand a high light sensitivity. Huawei explains that the P9 catches up to 70 percent more light than a Galaxy S7.

The dual lens also allows the subsequent move of the focal range, you can decide in hindsight whether the flower in the foreground or the tree in the background is focused. In addition, the depth of field can be manipulate (Bokeh), by software an aperture between f0. 95 and f16 is simulated.

Despite these innovations, the P9 heralds a new era of Smartphone photography. The image quality is very good, that Plus camera flagships will be Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6s but not surpassed in Lowlight images. Given that no 4K-Videoaufnahmen are possible with the P9.

It could have been better

The P9 has been available since mid-April for 569 euro. A fair price considering the offer, there are not many Smartphones, which are so good in the hand and at the same time bring a very good camera. The first model with Leica technology has still not a high Achiever, is located on the below-average battery life and the streaky radio properties. The P9 is a good Smartphone, which could have been but is still much better. Here, Huawei has unfortunately given potential.
