First Impression –
Talking about its design, It looks quite impressive due to its bezel less feature and proves to be a futuristic phone with Edge to Edge display and round Corners. All the three colors looks good but Black is again back and going to rule in the market as people are getting bored with the gold color now.
Going to its Dimensions and weight , then it has 18:9 display with 164g weight, so it is not bulky.
Looking at the Processor, It has quite a decent processor which is good for daily usage and it is powered by Android 7.0 with custom UI of Huawei which is smooth of its own.
Talking about Camera, then it has to say that Honor has worked quite a good time on its camera. It has PRO , HDR ,Portrait , Night mode and many other features in its camera. It can take very good photos and as it has dual camera so you can use the benefits it.
Coming to the Memory, it has 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage and can be expanded with memory card which is a good thing you have to compromise on Dual Sim if you want to add memory card in this phone.
Getting into the Battery, it has 3340 mAh capacity which is less if we compare it with other phones in this segment as now a days 4000 mAh sounds like a normal thing.
Talking about the rest, It has all the important sensors but is lacking the gyroscope , i dont know why Huawei has do this to leave one behind but It is a Con of this smartphone.Quite surprisingly , it also do not have Type C support as it is with Micro USB.
The Honor 9i has been priced in India at Rs 17,999. The smartphone will go on sale from October 14 exclusively on Flipkart.com
