Đánh Giá Huawei P9 Plus

So you’ve just made a kick-ass phone, but one version just isn’t enough to lớn keep everyone happy any more. What vì chưng you do?


Samsung took the already excellent Galaxy S7 và added a funky curved screen to make the S7 Edge. Clearly the formula works, so Huawei has done something similar with the P9 Plus.

It’s a slightly bigger, slightly better take on the P9, gaining a few extra features but keeping the ones that matter: those two Leica-approved cameras on the back.


They impressed us the first time around, but weren’t enough to lớn truly shake up our vị trí cao nhất ten. Will added AMOLED và 3D Touch-style shenanigans make the difference now?


A SOFT TOUCH

Wait, 3 chiều Touch? Yep, it’s not just hãng apple with pressure-sensitive screens any more. Huawei’s Press cảm biến does pretty much the same thing as the tech you’ll find on the iPhone 6s – so it knows the difference between a light tap & a forceful press.


It’ll let apps open context menus from their shortcuts, instead of opening properly và taking over the whole screen. Think jumping straight into the selfie camera, tốc độ dialling a favourite contact, or making a calendar appointment without having lớn dig through a load of menus first.

It’s pretty seamless for the apps that tư vấn it, but that’s the problem – not every phầm mềm does. Pressure sensitivity is cool and all, but if you aren’t using Huawei’s built-in gallery, calendar, or messaging apps, Press cảm ứng doesn’t really have any use.

Saying that, though, I love how pressing down on your pics in the gallery app brings up a magnifying glass for zooming in on details. It’s perfect for checking that spur-of-the-moment snap is in focus before you hit the mô tả button.


It could be great if other app developers get on board with the tech, but right now Press touch is a bit of a novelty.

SCREEN TEST

Colours that pop off the screen are great for making your điện thoại thông minh snaps looking good too – unless you’re shooting with the P9 Plus’ other buổi tiệc nhỏ trick. It’s packing two cameras, just like its baby brother.

You’ve got two 12MP sensors on the back: one takes colour photos và the other is strictly black and white. There’s less technical gubbins between scene and sensor in the monochrome camera, so it’ll cope better with low light. That means less noise và more detail, along with a deliciously arty greyscale colour palette. You’ll be lapping up Instagram followers in no time.

Normally, both sensors work together which, when combined with some clever image processing, leaves your photos looking sharper than they would have done with just one – or at least that’s the theory. They can also bởi vì some clever depth-of-field effects after you’ve pressed the shutter, or you can switch into Monochrome mode và eschew the colour sensor altogether. You misunderstood arty type, you.

It’s a chất lượng approach to lớn the whole "one phone, two cameras" thing, with điện thoại htc giving up on its depth-sensing twin lens setup for the htc 10 & LG going wide angle for the G5. I’m a big tín đồ of the black and white shots the P9 Plus takes, but don’t let that Leica logo fool you – picture unique isn’t the best.

Sure, it’s packing tia laze focusing and phase detection, but without optical image stabilization it lags behind the Galaxy S7 when it comes khổng lồ nighttime shooting. Expect a bit of blur unless you’ve got seriously steady hands.

The f/2.2 aperture doesn’t help, either. The S7 Edge has a much wider f/1.7 sensor, which sees a lot more light per shot. Seeing how the twin sensors were supposed khổng lồ make this a low-light monster, I was a little disappointed with how it handled. At least the dual-LED is beefy enough to lớn give your shots a boost when there’s just not enough natural light to lớn get the job done.

Head out during the day, though, và it’s a completely different beast. Colours are excellent, there’s plenty of detail, & contrast is incredible when you’re using the monochrome sensor.

The tự động hóa mode does a great job no matter where you point it, exposing pics properly when shooting into & away from the sun. There’s some HDR-style tweaking going on behind the scenes, but looking at the results, I really don’t mind at all.

Not much has changed on the back from the P9, then, but the front-facing camera has been boosted with an 8MP sensor và f/1.9 aperture lens. Good luck getting better for less cash – skin tones look natural, details are great and things don’t turn to mush as soon as you step inside.

It’s got the same cameras. It’s even got the same name – is there any surprise the P9 Plus looks just lượt thích an upscaled version of the P9? Not that I’d hotline that a bad thing, mind.

The P9 was a subtly stylish phone, và the Plus follows suit with a super-slim combination of metal and glass. It narrowly avoids looking too much lượt thích an iPhone, although you can of course pick one up in gold or pink – just lượt thích Apple.

The screen might not bend around the sides lượt thích an S7 Edge, but the rounded edges mean it sits comfortably in your hand. That’s still rare for a 5.5-incher.

You can’t swap out the battery, but then part from LG, who else lets you vì that any more? You bởi vì get a microSD thẻ slot, so you can địa chỉ extra storage once you fill the generous 64GB of on-board memory. There’s even an IR blaster on the top, in case you’re desperate lớn control your TV with your phone.

The fingerprint sensor on the back sits right where your index finger lies naturally, so you don’t have lớn reach far to unlock the phone. It’s really quick, and recognises gestures too- swipe down & it’ll xuất hiện the notification screen, which is handty if you’ve got small digits and can’t reach the đứng top of the screen with one hand.

Inside, one of Huiawei’s own Kirin 955 CPUs is running the show. It’s an octa-core chip paired with 4GB of RAM, which basically means one thing – the P9 Plus is an absolute powerhouse.

OK, so it might narrowly thất bại out khổng lồ Snapdragon 820-equipped flagships like the Galaxy S7 Edge in synthetic benchmarks, but it’s able lớn keep up the pace in the real world.

Apps mở cửa instantly, home screens filled with widgets animate smoothly, and multitasking won’t bring it khổng lồ its knees either.

Mobile gamers will be happy khổng lồ hear the P9 Plus holds its own, even if it can’t match its rivals for power on paper. Good job it’s got fewer pixels khổng lồ push than other top-spec phones, then – games lượt thích Hearthstone run flawlessly.

If you aren’t constantly hunting for Pokemon or clashing clans, you’ll be able lớn go an impressive amount between battery top-ups too. I easily squeezed 36 hours from a single charge, using Huawei’s battery saver mode khổng lồ make that final 15% last as long as possible. #

A 3400mAh battery might not be massive, but with light use you’ll easily get two full days out of it. USB-C & fast charging means you’ll be ready lớn go after an hour plugged into the mains, too.

That zippy performance isn’t hampered by Huawei’s heavily customised version of apk Marshmallow, either. Emotion UI used khổng lồ be a bit of a nightmare, borrowing more from game ios than from Google’s operating system, but things have definitely changed for the better.

It’s still a very different feel to stock Android, but EMUI feels really refined here. There’s no phầm mềm drawer, so you’ll need lớn spend a few minutes wrestling all the pre-installed apps into folders, but it’s easy enough to lớn bring things under control.

At first, you might spend a second longer finding the option you want in Settings, or the icon on the notification drawer, but it soon clicks into place.

I love how you can tweak the font và icon size to squeeze more onscreen at once, lớn truly make the most of the larger display. It does mean the Home, Back & Menu buttons get shrunk down too, but not so much that they’re impossible lớn hit.

I even found myself using some of Huawei’s mặc định apps – normally the first thing I vày with any new phone is download all the Google apps I can get my hands on, but the minimal looks và designs that maximise screen space meant the Notes, Calendar và Gallery apps actually saw some screen time, rather than just being shunted into a thư mục and forgotten about.

Huawei P9 Plus verdict

Is this the best phone Huawei has ever made? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s a fair assessment.

It looks the part, is powerful enough to lớn compete with other top-spec phones, and takes fantastic photos – even if those twin sensors can’t quite topple Samsung as the king of điện thoại cảm ứng cameras.

The pressure-sensitive screen is pretty forward-thinking, too. I don’t think game android is ready for this kind of tech yet, but it’s great khổng lồ see Huawei giving it a go now – it’ll be ready when everyone else catches up.

As it works right now, though, it isn’t enough to justify the extra cash you’ll be forking out over the regular P9. Sure, you’re also getting a bigger screen (an AMOLED one, at that) but the Plus verges dangerously close to Galaxy S7 & iPhone 6s territory.

Find it on the right contract giảm giá khuyến mãi and it’s a brilliant alternative to the big-name competition, but full price feels like asking just a little too much of your wallet.
