Huawei P9 is the flagship phone from Huawei and it is officially available in Nepal. Huawei Mobiles Nepal launched the P9 officially on an event at City Centre and chances are you were there too. The stage was open and anyone could participate in the event. Missed the event? Do read the article along with us then. The price of Huawei P9 in Nepal is Rs.59,999. The price tag itself makes it a high-end smartphone which makes it compete with the likes of OnePlus 3, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy Note 5. In this article we will be looking at Huawei P9: All there is to know.
Huawei is launching the 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage variant of the P9 in Nepal which is very disappointing right off the bat. While many will go as far as to compare the Huawei P9 with the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and the Galaxy Note 5, we clearly think the phone goes against the OnePlus 3 and rightfully so.
The specs of the Huawei P9 are as follows:
- 5.2″ 1080p Display
- Dual Sim
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB Internal Storage with micro-SD card expansion
- Dual 12MP Camera (company claims dual lens lets in 270% more light than iPhone 6s and 70% more than that of Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge)
- 3000mAh battery
- 1080p Video Recording
- USB Type-C Connector
Here are some of the things we didn’t like about the Huawei P9 and company as a whole:
- Rs.60,000 is too much to ask specially from a company who makes most of the money selling low-end/mid-range phones
- 6GB RAM on the OnePlus 3> 3GB RAM on P9
- 1080p Screen isn’t bleeding edge technology
- What’s up with ‘just’ 1080p Video recording?
- Huawei phone for Rs.60,000? The company just doesn’t happen to have such brand value yet!
- Service of Samsung far superior than that of Huawei
- CPU not as good as Snapdragon 820
Some of the things we didn’t like about the phone is our personal opinion. It’s not very technical or scientific. This is what we got to hear from the general public too.
Huawei P9 without any doubt is a great phone. It has got a really good ‘Leica’ branded camera. It has a good enough processor and plenty of memory. But is it really worth your hard earned cash? We will say ‘no’. Shove some of your hard-earned cash back into your pocket and get the OnePlus 3. You will love it much more!
However, if the company decides to drop the price of the phone, we will have to give it another look. In US, the phone sells for $450. If Huawei Nepal can sell the P9 for Rs.50,000, the phone will certainly be worth the money!
P.S. I just realised my Panasonic Lumix G6 Micro Four-Third Camera also has a Leica branding in it!
This is just our first impression. Wait for our full review of the Huawei P9. The review will most probably be posted in one week time. Thanks for reading this post. This is all we have for now. This was the Huawei P9: All there is to know post for today. Stay tuned and stay updated at TechnoNepal.
