Huawei P9, analysis: Two heads are better than one?
Last year was fantastic for Huawei, and it seems that this 2016 will be any different. Phones like the P family have blamed much of its growth, as gambled to grow in closer to the high end level with solutions offered much less than other competitors. Much of the fault of your poster at this level we can take the Super Nexus 6P.
With the Huawei P9 / P9 Plus we got to the fourth generation of a family that wants to play with the biggest, moving closer each year, and attest that in this iteration the jump is important, especially in the presence and camera. Another thing is to win reputation, because in such expensive phones have to sweat blood qoq people to change their minds. Advertising will not be there Huawei is taking the rest.
THE THIRD MANUFACTURER OF MOBILE MISSING A STEP TO DISTURB THE HIGHEST MARKET RANGE, BUT THAT EVERY TIME STEP IS SMALLER
Before going to analyze each paragraph, we must remember that the camera is a factor buying too much weight, especially at the price at which these phones move. The manufacturers know and could not P9 stillborn without significant improvement. The solution has passed through befriending and bet Leica is the first to bring to the market a different system of double camera, on one of the sensors registers the information without color.
Design: prettiest, best done
For a phone so focused to show that your camera is special, it has nothing in its design to accompany this theory: neither the position of the camera, or a handle - even as an accessory - not even a special button for make shots. The Chinese company wanted everything to be like a "normal Huawei" and current.
ANOTHER EXAMPLE THAT IN QUALITY, ELEGANCE AND DESIGN, HUAWEI LEVEL IS AT THE BEST MARKET. BUENOS MATERIALS AND TERMINATION, attention to detail
Well, ordinary does not mean it is bad, here it is a very high technology manufacturing, also a choice of great material - aluminum is -. Huawei knows how to make attractive, smart phones, and with the passage of time is gaining a personality with its design language. It is difficult to get this on the high end, but they are there. You like more or less than others is another story.
The phone tries by all means drop comfortable in the hand, despite its metal forcefulness. How? For each party rounding possible from the front glass to the side, through a subtle bevel on every corner. It is very well done and in this size can still be used easily with one hand.
The area of the camera itself can consider that has a special design, placed at the top rear of the phone, and completely protected by glass Gorilla Glass type 3. Yes, starting from the two lenses to the right area where Leica confirms certification, are defended by such surface, and the truth is that is quite attractive.
WITH RESPECT TO COMPETITION it IS POWERFUL ENOUGH IN SLIMMING AND LIGHTWEIGHT: 144 GRAMS. In just 7 millimeters thick have gotten BATTERY 3000 MAH
At the rear there is a fingerprint sensor, a place that I feel more uncomfortable than in the front, but this is a matter of taste. Yes we like cleaning set about antennas - not cross a very unsightly way the terminal, they are well integrated.
Some details less important but I would like to comment: the dotted which has the power button, recognizable without looking, or how attractive is the pattern of lines in the front area and the camera. We do not forget the presence of a USB-C connector below, where we also have the mono speaker and headphone jack.
Being very demanding design, and without going into a dispute of tastes, I the only phone that seems different is the curved Galaxy S7, is one step ahead, and is the only step I see missing from Huawei to cross to be outstanding. But as always, tastes, colors. Following things that do not perfect, saying that the aluminum scratch the back if we are not careful enough.
THE HUAWEI P9 IS A GREAT PERFORMANCE WITH RESPECT TO P8 IN ALL SENSES, BUT WHERE IS WON MORE IN THE PRESENCE
What colors you can get? Well we have a Mystic Silver aluminum mixing with white, and is the one I like. There is also the fashioned Rose Gold, a Titanium Grey and likes Asians, the Prestige Gold. Although donot talks about marketing, there is a ceramic variant of the phone.
A notable conservative screen
Huawei P9 screen is 5.2 inches, falls within what most are looking much better than the mastodóntica unit found in the Mate 8. As in this, the design is very accomplished for most of its surface occupies the front of the phone, and although the frames are minimal, there is a black line there that try to cheat a little.
From the technological point of view, it is remarkable, for technology and resolution. I do not think Huawei will take too long to move on to better panels, or at least more modern, but for now still planted in this, which does well to produce cheap and get very good returns on their phones.
GORILLA GLASS PROTECTION EXTENDS ACROSS THE FRONT OF THE PHONE, EVEN THE CAMERA. WE LIKE THE EFFECT THAT GIVES CURVADO 2.5D DESIGN IN THE SIDES OF THE SCREEN
With "old" technology I mean Full HD resolution, 5.2 inches which is quite passable, maybe not so much in the Plus version of the phone. For performance of the new Kirin, this resolution is demonstrated that comes pearl, so it was with the Mate 8, and so is repeated in P9.
With respect to the usual parameters to assess, because we have a brightness level average, nothing remarkable, and hesitantly when bright sunlight where we are. Turning to contrast, the level is outstanding in a panel of IPS type (they call Neo). Ending with the color temperature, say that it is set to be very striking - saturated - but something artificial about the real tone.
Comment that the Plus model, 5.5 inches, has the same resolution, but have scrounged Super AMOLED panel that may be better in many sections. it also opens a system called Press Touch, which is like the 3D Touch Apple. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to try to help them understand whether it is worth opt for that version.
Two cameras with the consent of Leica
On the technology used in the camera and I have spoken at length, now that we have at hand is much easier to understand certain things, and we hope to explain better. First, have two cameras on this phone is not the same as we have seen in previous configurations, here played with merge capture what is "normal" and another monochrome sensor.
The theory says that the monochrome sensor does not have to register bayer color filter, which makes it more light - three times - and information that his fellow sufferer. This implies that in the union of the photos should be more detail, less noise and better performance in low light.
Having two cameras also allows the system to better understand the distance to objects, which helps with autofocus and other tricks - bokeh end - we'll see later. Huawei joins this assistance focusing system using a laser. Leaving aside the possibility of merging images, monochrome sensor can give much play on your own.
PERFORMANCE IS BETTER THAN OFFERING AND HUAWEI, SO 'LEICA CERTIFICATIONS' THE MARGINS, THE MISSION ACCOMPLISHED IS
The two chambers have 12 megapixel sensors - are not Sony, makes Sunny Optical - both with lenses with maximum aperture f / 2.2, which is not a record in the market, but has weapons to mitigate differences. Which itself is a step behind in the optical stabilization is because you do not have it.
It's funny, besides the double configuration, almost all major manufacturers have decided that the ideal size for these small sensors is around that amount of megapixels, the photodiodes are looking for bigger and better record information.
In the case of Huawei P9 have a size of 1.25 microns, which is similar to an iPhone 6s, significantly smaller than a Galaxy S7, for me the best in the market. Following important data, we need the lens is 27 mm.
The dual sensor provides quality
