by Habeeb Onawole 3

When Huawei released the Mate 9, they announced a premium edition called the Mate 9 Porsche Design which is basically the Mate 9 Pro with a more sophisticated design. That extra design makes the phone cost a lot more than the Mate Pro. And that is not where it ends, if you break your Mate 9 Pro Porsche Design you will be spending a fortune to fix it.

    Do NOT buy the phone in first place.

    For the price of this (overpriced) phone I could buy 7 good phones and have one for each day of the week! less chance of me getting bored with any of them after a few months 🙂

    This is a very DAMN LAME but expensive phone.

    Huawei itself already very expensive, plus the gimmick brand “Porche design” is not useful at all but to inflate the price to a more unreasonable outrageous price.

    But hey there are always those rich (but very dumb) people outside that willing to buy because they have so much money and don’t know what to do with them but to show off.
