One of the best mid-range smartphones coming this year from Huawei. At the P9 Lite, the Chinese do everything as shown in the test.
Huawei is one of the few Smartphone manufacturers that were able to grow in recent years despite ever-harder competition. The P9 Lite shows that this growth is driven by a high product quality and a very good value for money. At first glance, but sees that the product design is no strength of Chinese.
The only 7.5 mm thin Smartphone is a frame ground to and a back and curved at the edges well in hand, the overall impression is but not particularly noble. Which is also on the mat and slightly textured plastic, which dominated the housing – look closely at the 500-euros flagship Huawei P9 (Test) ajar, the plastic back against the metal suit can of course make no tricks. Middle-class food, which appropriately is not less than the price – is available here solid but also no longer.
The processing is, however, top, Huawei there no nakedness itself, just as little as the technical equipment. The display is 5.2 inches tall and shows 1920 x 1080 pixels, which makes for a very sharp display. The brightness and contrast values convince, especially with a view on the price.
Below the display, a chipset pretends the clock with eight cores: the Kirin 960, which until early 2016 was presented by HiSilicon Huawei subsidiary. It is produced procedure in the modern 16-nanometre – that promises a moderate energy consumption despite the high clock rates of the two 4-core cluster (2/1.7 GHz). The performance does not match up naturally to expensive top smartphones, is sufficient, but for everyday looming lush 3 GB of memory. The operating system smart responds input in any situation, we have not seen dropouts or earrings.
Huawei Android installed the current version 6.0.1, which is complemented by the UI EMUI 4.1 – in both cases it is the currently latest versions, Huawei fobs off the buyer so not with old software. This can change, however, when Google released a new version of Android in the autumn. In contrast to companies such as Sony or Lenovo a good software support over a longer period of time is not a trademark of Huawei?
The surface EMUI which has native Android just have little in common with Google’s, like with a look reminiscent of the iPhone and menu structure. The Chinese have studied some improvements to Android or not offering, about a phone manager that allows various system enhancements.
Particularly well-liked but has us bringing back fingerprint sensor in operation: If one deletes in horizontally in the image gallery, leafing through photographs, the swipe of the finger from top to bottom works out the status line. From the factory, this extra is however disabled, to use it, two virtual switches must be killed in the settings (see “fingerprint ID”). The sensor provides excellent detection rate by the way and very responsive to touch.
Selfies with high quality
Huawei uses a 13-megapixel sensor from Sony, which delivers a class typical image quality in the camera. This means: A high dynamic range and poor lighting conditions, quickly indicate the limits of the P9 Lite. You so should have too high expectations. The 8-megapixel front-facing camera, however, boasts a strong image quality.
The clear menu structure, which makes accessible with just the stroke of a finger, all the settings like this. The expert mode also allows experimentation with a variety of parameters, the white balance to manual focusing. Videos maximum recorded with HD resolution and blurred relatively quickly. But overall, the P9 Lite here leaves a good impression.
Although the battery of the P9 Lite offers the same capacity as the P9 (3000 mAh), the run time is much longer. Even more: Impressive 8:24 hours in our mix of uses catapult the new entry in the top third of the endurance ranking – there are not many Mittelklässler who can do it.
The radio properties are convincing: very good readings are achieved in all three networks. The P9 Lite is capable of dual-SIM, a hybrid compartment you can insert either a micro SD or a second SIM card. In sum, that is sufficient for the Gesamnote ‘very good’ and a top ranking on the leaderboard – before many other colleagues who are considerably more expensive. It looks as if Huawei here has landed a real hit.
