Bottom Line

The Huawei P9 Plus’s upgrades from its sibling, like its larger battery, and its larger, now pressure-sensitive screen are all pluses, but its also plus size price tag puts it up against some opponents it just can’t handle.


The Huawei P9 Plus is a 2016 5.5-inch high-end smartphone that has been praised for its elegant design, premium features, and innovative pressure-sensitive. The P9 Plus is in many ways an upgrade to its smaller sibling, with all the great features of the P9, and some notable additions like the larger battery and pressure-sensitive screen. Being one of the first Android phones with a pressure-sensitive display, Huawei tries to provide an Apple-like 3D Touch of their own. However, the feature does not prove as useful as Apple’s 3D Touch, feeling more like a taste of what’s to come on future devices, and while all the tech upgrades are gladly welcomed, they do not warrant a price tag that steep.

    The Huawei P9 Plus can justify its higher price over the standard P9. We get a great high-end smartphone with many good characteristics; only the video features of the Chinese smartphone cannot really meet our expectations.

    A phone that looks, feels, and is expensive, the Huawei P9 Plus has a generous dollop of luxury to it.

    Great battery life, good screen and a jam-packed camera continue Huawei’s strong run. But there are better options out there.
