The best Huawei Mate 9 deals in 2018

If you're in the market for a large screen phone right now, you'd really struggle to go wrong with the Huawei Mate 9. The Chinese manufacturer generally makes cheaper handsets and this was the best yet from the company on its release.

We particularly like the long battery life, top notch processing power and full metal body design that you get with the phablet. The price tag on the Mate 9 was a little higher than we expected at launch, but now it has dropped right down to make it a perfectly priced handset, especially considering what's on offer here.

But it probably won't be around for much longer - the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is now here - and contract deals have dried up altogether. You can see the best SIM-free handset prices below for the Mate 9.

Huawei Mate 9 review

One of the best phablets around

Screen size: 5.9-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Rear camera: 20MP + 12MP | Weight: 190g | OS: Android 7 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 4000mAh

Incredible battery life
Powerful processor
Solid build quality
Emotion UI is strange

With a super sharp dual rear camera, a gorgeous metal body design and a huge 5.9-inch Full HD display we'd be surprised if you're not happy with the Huawei Mate 9. It features Android 7 software and there's a fingerprint scanner on the back for added security.

The Huawei Mate 9 doesn't offer anything groundbreaking like some of the more expensive alternative phones available right now, but it's a solid and dependable handset that will treat you well if you're looking for a larger device.
