‘The Huawei Mate 9 is a phablet that’s built to last, with an impressive camera, powerful processor and great battery life. ‘If you’re after a phone with fantastic battery life, the Mate 9 is well up to the job; you could even get two days of use from a single charge. And for when you do run low, there’s fast-charging to get you going again quickly. ‘It’s also one of the most powerful phones around, so if you’re a power user this is the perfect setup. Another plus point is the software – it’s based on Android 7 Nougat, and right now that’s a rarity on phablets that aren’t made by Google.’

‘The Mate 9 has an impressive number of business features pre-installed. Firstly, it can hold two accounts for apps such as Facebook, which should make switching between work and family life a bit easier. ‘It also has four directional microphones – this is great for the audio recording app, as they each record to a different channel, allowing you to mute background noise or a specific voice. It also improves call quality. ‘The Huawei Mate 9 is the best smartphone to hail from the People’s Republic. It has a great 5.9-inch display, and brilliant battery life, thanks to the large 4,000 mAh unit.’
