I own a Honor 8, absolutely love it, Emui has become my favorite version of Android. I've always been a fan of bigger phones, so of course I want the Mate 9. After thinking about it for a long while, I've come to the conclusion that the Mate 9 is just a bigger Honor 8, I can't see spending the money to just get a bigger phone of what I already have. So, I've decided that the Mate 9 pro is the way to go, I get a true upgrade in everything that way, screen size, 2k vs 1080p, CPU with the 960 vs the 950, RAM, 6 gigs vs 4. Much better deal if you already own a Honor 8 and if you don't, get one, it's the best of the Mate 8 and the P9 put together in a sexy little package.
