Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has been dishing out some good phones recently. The Honor 8 Pro (Review) which launched earlier this year went head-to-head with the OnePlus 5 (Review) stealing its thunder to some extent. We were impressed with the specs and features it offered for the price. With the market slowly pivoting towards 18:9 displays, Honor has made that move in the form of the Honor 9i. The screen isn’t the only interesting thing about this new phone. It also sports four cameras making it quite unique. While the specifications look good on paper, do they translate into a good real-world experience? We've got the answer.

Honor 9i Summary

The Honor 9i sports a big 5.9-inch display with a FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It is powered by a Kirin 659 octa-core processor and has 4GB of RAM. The Honor 9i has 64GB of internal storage which can be expandable via a microSD card. It is a dual-SIM device with support for 4G and VoLTE.

It has four cameras in total with a dual camera setup at the front and at the back. The setup at the back comprises of a 16-megapixel and a 2-megapixel camera, while the front has a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel setup.

  • Worst phone
    Mary Shaji (May 25, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    It's been one week since I am using this phone.. it takes 3 hours to be fully charged.. and it comes back to less than 10% within 5 hours.. speakers are horrible.. you'll have to cup your hands for the sound to be audible enough.. cameras aren't still.. it takes blurry images.. Never buy this phone.. my worst decision
