Huawei announced the P9 and the P9 Plus smartphone a few week back. The phones cost a lot, much higher than traditional Chinese flagships, but in its defence, it comes with a few extraordinary features to kind of justify the price. While the camera and the looks of the phone might be better than average, when it comes to the battery life, the P9 just got a 3000mAh capacity battery on board. That’s just average according to today’s standard. But thanks to GSMArena’s thorough battery life testing, we got to know that it’s not so bad.
According to the Huawei P9 battery review of GSMArena, the phone got an endurance rating of 75 hours which is pretty decent. Now, this figure is definitely an upgrade from the Huawei P8, which only got a rating of 64 hours. Further, the review said that the battery life was balanced, with the standard and ultra-saving modes adding a few more precious hours to the device.
If you want the numbers, then the Huawei P9 battery gives 3G talk time of around 14:53 hours, with web browsing for just over 9 hours and video playback for a good 8:46 hours. Not the best we have seen on a flagship smartphone, but still pretty good. The compact screen size and the 1080p resolution does help in keeping the phone running throughout the day.
To recap, the Huawei P9 features a 5.2-inch display with 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the phone features the new and improved Kirin 955 chipset with 3GB / 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB storage. At the back, there will be a dual 12MP camera setup powered by Leica, while up front, you will find an 8MP selfie shooter. Other features include a non-removable 3000mAh battery with fast charge, NFC, USB Type-C and fingerprint sensor located at the back.
