Honor 9 Versus the Competition

Honor 9 Versus the Competition

The Honor 9 has been announced as the followup to the popular Honor 8 from last year. This new phone comes at the same time as other powerful phones within the same price hit the market. Let’s check out these different phones and see how they compare to the new Honor 9.

Like the OnePlus 5, the Honor 9 has elected to go with big processing power with the Kirin 960 while only having a 1080p screen. You don’t see many flagship devices going with the 1080p resolution anymore, but the ones that do still sell without any problems. That’s because most users value speed and battery life more than higher pixel density. By putting the latest hardware in the Honor 9 and skipping out of the higher resolution screen, they’re creating a much faster phone.
