Some other month, any other flagship. This time the flagship comes from Huawei within the type of the brand new  Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus handsets. The telephones have been unveiled in London in early April and can be to be had to maximum on the planet both someday in April or Would possibly (relying on the place you are living). And from first look this duo appear to provoke, as our Richard Goodwin reported. He’s now not on my own in his reward both. "Typically the dialog within the smartphone marketplace revolves round Samsung and Apple, however Huawei's robust appearing for each the quarter and the yr talk to how a lot it has grown as a world logo," stated Melissa Chau, Senior Analysis Supervisor with IDC's International Quarterly Cellular Telephone Tracker.

However may just the P9 in reality give Apple a run for it’s cash? On this comparability we examine the Huawei P9 to the access degree iPhone 6s (we’ll have a Huawei P9 Plus as opposed to the iPhone 6s Plus a little afterward). Right here’s how the 2 telephones stack up.

iPhone 6s vs Huawei P9: Specifications

Right here’s the specifications for the iPhone 6s:

  • Show: 4.7-inch show with a 1334x750-pixel solution at 326ppi, 3DTouch enabled

  • Colours: Silver, Area Gray, Gold, or Rose Gold

And right here’s the specifications for the Huawei P9:

  • Show: 5.2-inch show with a 1920×1080-pixel solution at 423ppi

  • Dimensions: 145mm  x 70.9 mm x 6.95 mm

  • Rear digital camera: Twin 12 megapixel rear with OIS and laser center of attention

  • Battery lifestyles: 3000 mAh

  • Colours: Mystic Silver, Titanium Gray, Quartz Grey

There’s so much proper with the Huawei P9 that Apple were given flawed with the iPhone 6. For starters, the garage and RAM. At the garage entrance the Huawei P9 begins at 32GB—a lot, MUCH higher than the 16GB access degree iPhone 6s. Each telephones are available a 64GB type, and whilst it’s true the iPhone gives a 128GB type whilst the P9 does now not, the Huawei P9 helps microSD playing cards as much as 128GB, this means that even the bottom type can surpass the iPhone’s most garage if the consumer so chooses.

Some other great factor concerning the Huawei P9 is the RAM. It is available in two other choices too. The 32GB P9 comes with 3GB of RAM, whilst the 64GB P9 comes with 4GB of RAM. Each are a a long way cry from the iPhone 6s’  2GB of RAM.

As for processors, the P9 options Huawei’s new Kirin 955 64-bit processor, which right here locks horns with Apple's tough A9 chipset within the iPhone 6s. Various benchmarking databases display the Kirin 955 to be on the most sensible of the Android OEM pile even surpassing the spectacular Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Samsung Exynos 8890. Then again, there are some early reviews that the Kirin 955 isn't as tough because the A9 chipset present in Apple's units.

iPhone 6s vs Huawei P9: Design & Construct

Even though the P9 doesn’t glance precisely just like the iPhone 6s each flagships game the similar subject matter design: precision-engineered aluminum with a sensible choice of colour choices. As for the main design variations, the fingerprint sensor at the P9 is at the again at the telephone whilst the Contact ID at the iPhone 6s is situated in the house button at the entrance of the telephone. In our view the iPhone 6s fingerprint scanner location is particularly extra handy than the rear panel at the P9, however this does come down to private choice. 

What’s actually fascinating is that the P9 is in fact the thinner telephone, coming in at 6.95mm skinny as opposed to the iPhone 6s’ 7.1mm thinness. As for weight the iPhone continues to be the lighter telephone—simply slightly—coming in at 143 vs 144 grams.

iPhone 6s vs Huawei P9: Show and Battery

As for presentations, the P9 includes a higher 5.2in show as opposed to the iPhone 6s’ 4.7in show. What’s in point of fact superb about that, then again, is that the surface space of the P9 is rarely greater than the iPhone 6s, in spite of the show being a lot higher. Then again, measurement isn’t the one distinction. The P9  has a better display solution at 1920x1080 at 423ppi as opposed to the iPhone 6s’ 1334x750 pixel solution at 326ppi. That being stated, the P9 doesn’t have any more or less pressure-sensitive 3-d Contact show just like the 6s does - now not that that is essentially a unfavorable level; there are some who do not see what the fuss is set with three-D Contact.

But if we get to battery, the P9’s 3000 mAh battery trounces the iPhone’s 1715 mAh pack. On the other hand—simply as with RAM and processors—how lengthy a telephone’s battery lasts has as a lot to do with the dimensions of the pack because it does with how smartly the device works to preserve energy. That being stated, early reviews are the P9’s battery can remaining so long as an afternoon and a part underneath commonplace use.

iPhone 6s vs Huawei P9: Cameras

In relation to the cameras, it’s recreation over. The P9 CLEARLY wins right here. Why? As it includes a dual-camera Leica lens in its rear digital camera. That’s proper, there are TWO 12MP cameras at the again, main to images that way DSLR high quality. That is HUGE—and it’s one thing the iPhone 6s’ rear single-lens 12MP digital camera can’t fit. Oh, and did we point out the P9 options optical symbol stabilization? That’s one thing else the iPhone 6s doesn’t be offering. As for entrance dealing with cameras, the P9 beats the iPhone there too, with an 8MP entrance digital camera as opposed to the iPhone’s 5MP lens.

iPhone 6s vs Huawei P9: Verdict

Unquestionably about it: the P9 is a smart flagship telephone. Is it higher than the iPhone 6s? In some respects, sure. Does that imply you will have to purchase a P9 over an iPhone 6s? That is dependent upon a number of elements, the largest of which is how giant partial to iOS you're. In case you love iOS, regardless of how just right the hardware within the P9 is, you’re now not going to benefit from the tool revel in (in case you don’t like Android as a lot). It’s because of this I will be able to’t say the P9 is an “iPhone killer.” Nonetheless, it does be offering quite a lot of issues (cameras, garage) that the iPhone may just be informed from.
