    Folks,

    As you may know I change phones a LOT! Currently I'm rocking an iPhone 7 Plus and a BlackBerry KEYone. I also have a Moto Z Force, Lumia 950 and Xiaomi Mi Mix waiting in the wings. I will probably switch back to the Mix and give the KEYone to my Dad on Father's Day. ANYWAYS, I'm really missing my Mate 9, that I had a few months ago. I really loved that phone and it's interface, the infamous EMUI 5.0.

    I LOVED the gestures. The ability to swipe down and then do a search, the lock screen tools, and the screen recording capabilities. It was just SO easy to take a capture of the screen, OR to actually record your screen, which allowed me to help others with tasks on Android. "How do you turn on WiFi calling" "Here I'll make a video of my screen and show you!" lol

    I really like new things so I probably WON'T get another Mate 9, BUT when the Mate 10 comes out, OR if I can get my hands on another current model, like the P10, or the Honor 9 , now THAT I would be all over! Who's with me!

    Grass is greener on other side? There's Note 8, iPhone 8, Pixel XL2, while you trade and wait. But I'd get another Mate.

    Why won't you get another mate 9? If I really loved and missed a phone then i would get it again. You can buy a used one to save some money

    I always want something different! Definitely looking forward to the Pixel 2 and to that Essential phone from Andy Rubin IF I can get an unlocked one.

    I guess it just depends on how much you loved the mate 9. Sounds like it's a good amount but you love new phones better. Nothing wrong is course, just use what makes you the happiest!

    My mate 9 screening broke had to get it replaced by Huawei and use a Nexus 6p for a week or so, it's only then I knew how much I love my Mate 9 and hopefully Mate 10 when it comes

    The Mate 9 is the only phone that made me forget about root and battery anxiety, and performance issue i had with Android and Tekken, no other phone could do that.

    The Mate 9 I have has been glitch resistant.

    Others can go on and on about Samsung and LG phones...yet the Mate 9 is a great package for those who could care less about 800 dollar slabs.
    Keep charging those high prices Samsung...so many have moved on from the gouging.

    The mate 9 is grossly underrated, it's battery life beats all phones i saw and used, the new OnePlus 5 isn't really special and I believe the mate 9 offers the best of the best, it could be perfect if it had better low light camera, even larger battery for even more awesome battery life, better update schedule and IP68 rating.

    This is my third time coming back to the Mate 9. And I am here to stay for awhile. I don't plan on getting another phone until manufacturer start releasesing phones with T-MO's new 600 MHz bands. Hopefully the Mate 10 will have the new bands.

    I for SURE will take a long hard look at the Mate 10, but I must disclose I did get a OP5. (I had a 1 2 and 3, so I kinda HAD to get the 5, lol)

    On the opposite side, I didn't get the 1,2, and 3 so I had to not get the 5! Haha.

    I dunno, OnePlus never really UI interested me. But I am interested in the mate lineup. Will definitely look at the mate 10 especially if it works on Verizon.

    Huaweis in house chip already has a CDMA solution in the mate 9. All they need to do is to activate it and provide the LTE bands and it would Work on Verizon

    I wouldn't discount getting a Mate 9 because it didn't drop this year, it's still just as fast where it counts as an 835 equipped phone, and in some cases faster.

    The mate 10 has some very big shoes to fill if it's going to get me to give up the 9 haha.

    Has anyone else noticed that it's like one of the only android phones out of the box that actually shows you a secondary battery icon of a bluetooth device when you're hooked up to it (does so for my senheisser momentum 2.0's and I LOVE it).

    Currently the Mate 9 is the only phone that is large with huge battery and speedy performance, never throttles like S7 or S8, Mate 10 need to have much more if it want to impress us

    The Bluetooth battery bar is pretty nice. I hate it when my Bluetooth earphones run out of battery. Ugh. Hopefully others will add this in by default.
