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 phones that came out at similar times like 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.
