Mate 9: Ask an expert Mobile spoke with Huawei regional trainer for the North East, Iain Jones, ahead of the launch of the Mate 9, to find out a little bit more about the company’s latest flagship device What were your first impressions of the Mate 9? Loved it, absolutely loved it. I think it’s going to be the next big thing in my opinion. What’s special about the handset? It’s a big, big screen mobile device at 5.9ins but it still feels light and ergonomic. This combo means that for users looking for a perfect device for gaming, movies, television – and even working on the go – there’s no device like it. With the 4,000 mAh battery as well, it just means you can do whatever you like on your mobile, on the go and with confidence. What’s your favourite feature? As a bit of a photographer myself, it’s got to be

the camera. We’ve taken the great achievements of the P9, of the Leica collaboration and made it even better. Leica is the Rolls-Royce of lenses, and to be working as close as we are together gives users something really special. What are the store staff members in your area saying about the Mate 9? They’re excited. At Three, some of the techy guys have been reading up on the devices already on sites such as TechRadar: they’re buzzing about it, they’re excited to see the Mate 9 when it arrives. I think once the staff get the device in hand on 13 January they’ll see just how much it offers their customers.
