Honor 9i Verdict:

Well if you are going for the 9i be sure of your priorities. The affordable costing means there will be a few compromises. We first share you the positives:


1. Big screen(for reading, split screen, etc)
2. Enhanced screen to body ratio(83%)
3. Better ram management
4. Elegance
5. Above average camera performance(front camera is phenomenal!)
6. Weight of device
7. Additional features that comes with fingerprint sensor like browsing or swiping images in gallery, app lock, answer calls,etc.
8. Playing normal settings game(Not advanced)
9. Full HD+ display
10. Good viewing angles(because of 407ppi)
11. Customizable UI( EMUI 5.1)


If you are the person who can compromise Gyroscope sensor, IR, Fast charging, usb type c port, dual speakers, OIS for video recording,high end games, Gorilla glass protection,4k video recording then there is no better option in this price segment.

Second camera i.e of 2MP is provided for portrait effect and not a telephoto lens. If you want telephoto lens then opt for MI A1.

Little bit of heating you may experience but thats normal maybe because of metal body.
Headphones provide are not an in-ear type but the old one.
Charging cable or usb cable is of sufficient length.

Battery backup is sufficient for a day if you are not a heavy user of high end games or prolonged user of camera and video recording.
Out of 4GB only 2.4GB RAM was available when the device was first bootup.
One hand screen mode is available here for those who find 6 inch phone difficult to handle. Well the narrow bezels makes it more easy to hold. Its like holding a 5.5 or 5.7 inch phone.

With the advent of Iphone X, MI Mix 2, LG G6 and Google Pixel 2XL, 18:9 aspect ratio or bezel-less display will gonna become mainstream in near future.
So, if ergonomic design is your one of the highest priority then go with this device.
