Huawei Mate 9 review

 

For the last three weeks I have been using the Huawei Mate 9 full time. The verdict is easy: a great smartphone. I was sent the Huawei Mate 9 ahead of its New Zealand launch, scheduled for the 15th December. It arrived just in time to be taken with me...

Definitely a smartphone to consider if you are looking at upgrading now.
