If you’re in the market for a large screen phone right now, you’d be really struggle to go wrong with the Huawei Mate 9. The Chinese manufacturer generally makes cheaper handsets and this is the best yet from the company.
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.
The only bad news right now is that Huawei has confirmed it’s working on the Huawei Mate 10, which we expect to see launch at an event in mid-October 2017 so you may want to wait until that handset comes out to see if it’s any good, or if the Mate 9 price drops even further.
Even if it doesn’t, Black Friday may also see the Huawei Mate 9 price drop by quite some way. If you don’t want to wait though, you can use our price comparison chart below to find the best Mate 9 deal for you.

Since its launch, the Huawei Mate 9 has dropped dramatically in price and you’ll find it for a lot less now than a lot of other phablets on the market. We find deals are just under £500 at the moment, but below you’ll find the best price today and quite often it’s a lot less money than that too.
Be sure to take a look at our best SIM only deals that you can buy to pair with your new handset too.
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
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.
