    Hello! I (Daniel Bader) and Alex Dobie have Huawei's new Big Phone, the Mate 9, featuring the brand new Kirin 960 chip, a massive 4,000mAh battery, and a really interesting dual camera setup! And, of course, it runs Android 7.0 Nougat with the new EMUI 5.0 layer, and it's way better.

    Interested in this new phone? Ask us anything!

    I'm not sure if this is where to ask it or if you can answer this but where can I get the wallpaper shown here?

    We haven't had enough time to put the camera through its paces yet, but we'll let you know ASAP!

    Good Bye Samsung... Mate 9 here I come.

    Hi, Just joined this forum as I have a couple of probably basic questions!
    1) SD card memory. Can I add 256GB card and select that as the main memory. Will that be slower to use? ( I'm use to my Note 4 where the sd card is kept separate from main memory and can't be adopted )
    2) I use Apex launcher at the moment. I hope to use that to allow myself an app drawer etc

    Thank you

    Brutal? I've only had the phone for a few hours, so I can't really speak to it just yet but a 4,000mAh battery with a 1080p screen is sure to be good.

    Hey, welcome!

    1) I don't think you can do that... the Mate 9 doesn't support Adoptable Storage AFAIK, but you can insert a 256GB card and put most of your stuff on there.
    2) You can definitely use Apex launcher instead of the main one.

    Hope that helps!

    Does EMUI 5 fix the notification shade, application white listing, and lock screen notifications?

    Will the Mate 9 work on all 4 carriers in the US? If so will and ATT and Verizon SIM card combo work? How's reception? Is the dBm better or worse than the S7?

    That remains to be seen, however when Huawei announced this processor a few weeks back they mentioned that it carried CDMA capabilities. Just a matter of if they will enable them or not..and then a matter of if verizon and sprint choose to allow it on their networks.

    Hi Daniel and Alex, greetings from the UK.

    Daniel, just watched you on AAA, great work!

    I am a Note 4 user currently and my contract is coming up for renewal in December. I would have stayed Note, but then that thing with the explosions happened and now I can't get a 5.7 inch or bigger phone in Europe that is worth buying i.e a 'flagship'.

    So, I've never considered Huawei before, but now it's time to. My questions are:-

    1) Have you heard if UK carriers are picking it up? I am on O2, but would change if they don't stock it.

    2) Will it be comparable or better on performance from a Note 4?

    3) I know very little about this brand, but from AC I know that the interface eapecially notifications suck, is this still a problem on EMUI 5?

    4) Any major compromises on the phone you have identified?

    Thanks a lot and sorry about the long post

    - How is the battery?
    - How is the camera? Compared to a 6P? Low light shots?

    Any idea of when the phone might be released in the States?

    Don't mean to hijack the thread and I'm sure the OP will get back with their answers but I've used the phone for a week now and:

    1) Battery life is insane. First phone that lasts me two full days under standard usage
    2) Camera in low light isn't as good as the iPhone 7 or the S7/Note 7. At least not in auto mode. With a bit of manual mode tweaking and a steady set of hands, you can get some decent shots.

    My review of the phone is at: Huawei Mate 9 specs, price and review | Tbreak

    How are the notifications, I used to have a mate 8 and email notifications amongst others, were only received when you woke the phone up, regardless of how you set up the permissions!
