Huawei's Honor 9 is Every Mobile Gamer's Dream Phone

09 October 2017 | Reymart Jan Sarigumba

Users can find a plethora of games on the Google Play Store, ranging from strategy titles like Clash Royale to puzzles like Candy Crush. But even the most visually pleasing game could look terrible on a sub-par phone display. With Huawei’s latest flagship, the Honor 9 comes with a sharp display and other features that are perfectly designed for every mobile gamer out there.

Huawei has dedicated a lot of effort into creating the Honor 9, a top-of-the-line device that can offer an immersive gaming experience. With its high-end specs and impressive display, it could be one of best Android phones for gaming.

Easy on the eyes and hands

While its rivals are housing ginormous screen sizes, the Honor 9 sports a 5.15-inch screen with a 1080p resolution. Not only is it in easy to hold but also it’s easy on the eyes, as it comes with a sharp display. Although its screen isn’t in QHD resolution, it’s already great in Full HD, which helps improve its battery life. Also, its bright screen is a perfect feature in mobile gaming; not only is it bright but also appears warm and natural, unlike other devices that offer a blue hue on their displays.

Delightful Multimedia Experience

To enhance your gaming experience, the Honor 9 comes with a headphone jack that will allow you to plug in wired headsets on the bottom of the device. It also comes with a decent audio so you can listen to your favorite music or in-game tracks. If you want to experience a cordless mobile gaming experience, you can use a Bluetooth headset or harness its speaker driver that is found in the bottom edge of the device.

When it comes to playing mobile games or watching videos, the Honor 9’s 5.15-inch display may be a bit small compared to other flagships like the Galaxy S8 but it makes up for it by having a beautiful and sharp screen. Not to mention, games appear remarkable on the Honor 9, as the gameplay runs smoothly. The device is also easy to hold in two hands and use your thumb on the display, making it comfortable for gaming.

Top-of-the-line Powerhouse

A decent gaming smartphone should offer no stuttering or slowing down at any stage, which is how the Honor 9 performs. All thanks to its impressive HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset and 6 GB RAM. With these top-of-the-range specs, the Honor 9 won’t disappoint you when gaming or using demanding apps. This, coupled with its 3,200 mAh battery life, will last you a full day of gaming, with still around 10% left when you recharge the device at night. If you want to improve its battery performance, it’s best to switch off the Bluetooth while gaming. Turning on the Bluetooth while playing audio will quickly drain its battery. Also, with its already-bright display, you’ll be better off using the auto brightness mode than enabling the device to its full brightness. This will help you conserve battery juice so you can extend your gaming time.
