It didn't take us long playing with the Honor 9 to come to the conclusion that this is a well-built Android smartphone. It doesn't boast much in the way of headline-grabbing features, but it does have a great design and lots of nice touches to make the Honor 9 an impressive all-rounder. Ok, so it's never going to outperform the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6, but the 20MP main camera and splendid design mean that it isn't far off and for a much lower price.
