HONOR 9N REVIEW: NOTCHED DISPLAY ON A BUDGET, BUT FAILS TO MATCH UP TO COMPETITION

It has been sprinkling Huawei/Honor mobile phones as of late as the association tries to remove most extraordinary rival Xiaomi concerning the spending section. Having moved the Honor 7A and 7C underneath the Rs 10,000 esteem segment, they conveyed to the table more in the Rs 10,000-15,000 esteem segment and what better way to deal with do it in 2018 than hurling in a phone with an indent.

The Honor 9N is Huawei's reaction to the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 and the Moto G6. Starting at Rs 11,999 for the base variety with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storing, the 9N may anticipate that you will spend up to Rs 17,999 for the best end variety with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB accumulating. That appears to be an extraordinary arrangement to pay for extra RAM and limit yet given the manner in which that no other mobile phone from facilitate foes offers a score at the esteem, Honor could be dealing with a record overwhelmingly on it for bargains.

In any case, inside there's simply old news new on offer. We have similar camera setup that we saw on the Honor 9 Lite and the same chipset we saw on a year prior's Honor 9i. So does a revived blueprint and an esteem cut of sorts do what's expected to warrant a purchase? We should find.

Build and Design: 8/10


One thing that Honor has had influencing it to work is that their phones look smooth at the budgetary plans they offer in, and the Honor 9N is the same. At first look, the PDA looks moderately indistinct to the Huawei P20 Lite from the front. The back, of course, looks absolutely like the Honor 9 Lite pushed not very far in the past.

The Honor 9N features a 5.84-inch indicate which feels comfortable close by and is advantageous for one hand utilize. A reason behind the same is the high screen-to-body extent, which is around 80 percent, which implies there's a lot of show and alongside no bezel, beside the base jaw which has the Honor stamping. The bezels are not adequately thin to stay in contact with home about but instead most likely adds to the enthusiasm of the contraption. The one thing particular on the front, from the Honor 9 Lite, is that the bezels are dim in shading and don't facilitate the shading variety of the phone.

The 2.5D glass which twists around the plastic shell of the phone also helps with handle and impacts it to feel more premium than what the cost may suggest. The indent houses the forward looking camera, the earpiece, and the closeness sensor. Regard has in like manner had the ability to fit in a minor LED cautioning light into the score which is admirable.

Turn the phone around and you see a shining fruition that appears to have changed into a Honor/Huawei trademark by and large. The level twofold camera circumstance on the upper left nearby a LED streak close by is reminiscent of the Honor 9 Lite and looks comparably as in the current style. The phone is similarly not exceptionally generous at 152 g and the camera thump on the back is inconsequential, making the phone easy to use while keeping it on a table.

Concerning gets and ports, you have the power and volume rockers on the benefit and the twofold SIM plate on the left. Down underneath you have a scaled down scale USB opening for charging and the speaker grille taken after by a 3.5 mm headphone jack.


Features: 7.5/10

Regard has been releasing phones routinely as of late and it is difficult to remain mindful of which phone has what subtle elements. In any case, by virtue of the naming custom Honor sticks to, you can in any occasion seclude out the chipset it's cabin.

So the Honor 9N, much like the Honor 9 Lite and the Honor 9i going before it, houses the 16 nm HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset. It has a four Cortex A53 focuses coordinated at 2.36 GHz and four Cortex A53 focuses planned at 1.7 GHz for the low-control errands. On the plans front, you have a Mali T830 MP2 GPU.

The unit we got for review goes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storing which is the mid-level variety. On booting it all of a sudden, you for the most part get 52.8 GB of limit, which is decent.

Concerning the show, the Honor 9N sports a 5.84-inch LCD appear with a 19:9 edge extent. Regard has in like manner hurled in a 3,000 mAh battery to control the PDA. No curveballs on the item end as the 9N goes with Huawei's EMUI 8.0 based over Android Oreo 8.1.

Regarding optics, the 9N features a 13 MP + 2 MP camera setup on the back and a singular 16 MP camera on the front. The back setup furthermore gets a LED glint and features a phase distinguishing proof self-modify system.

System decisions consolidate help for twofold SIM cards (4G LTE + 3G), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS. There's a 3.5 mm headphone jack at the base and a microUSB port for data trades and charging.

Display: 8/10


One of the best offering concentrations for Honor 9N is obviously the score. Given the starting expense of the phone which is Rs 11,999, there are not very many decisions for you to peruse concerning scored appears. In the event that you're not an aficionado of it, in any case, you can regardless turn it off under show settings, anyway it is noticeable, because of the LCD appear.

Everything considered, the Honor 9N gets a comparable treatment that we had seen on the Huawei P20 Lite. The phone packs a 5.84-inch FHD+ LCD board with an assurance of 2280 x 1080 pixels and a point of view extent of 19:9. The show is unquestionably one of the better LCD indicates you can get with incredible, typical looking tones. The white modify is insignificantly on the light blue side anyway you can choose a more smoking tone in the settings.

Splendor levels were similarly unfathomable, which was shocking since this is a LCD board. Study the phone even under splendid light was not an issue. The base sparkle levels are furthermore critical, which comes accommodating if you have a tendency to use your phone in diminish conditions. Regard furthermore hurls in an 'Eye Care' mode for perusers.

Given the cost of the 9N, I would express that the show is better than that on the Moto G6 and at standard with the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1.

OS and Software: 6.5/10


The Honor 9 Lite comes bundled with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the case with Huawei's Emotion UI or EMUI 8.0 skin on it. This is a comparable component squeezed skin we'd seen on the Honor 9 Lite earlier this year. We would have foreseen that Huawei would hurl in EMUI 8.1 anyway that lamentably did not happen. Keep in mind that Huawei uses a lighter adjustment of EMUI on their monetary arrangement mobile phones and the 9N is the same.

I without a doubt don't particularly treasure cleaned types of Android and tend to impact more towards stock Android, anyway if you do love to switch up things on your phone, you will love EMUI. You in like manner get the June Security settle which should have you anchored against any security let-ups.

Along these lines, when I say feature squeezed, EMUI goes with an enormous measure of decisions for customisations, starting with the course keys which can be concealed to a home screen with or without an application bureau. There's an adroit part screen which perceives how much screen-space you require in perspective of the applications being used as a piece of split screen mode. Regardless, that is the place all the colossal bits land at an end.

The Honor 9N goes with an enormous measure of swell start with Honor's own specific Weather, HiCare, Mirror, Honor Club and a few other utility applications, to untouchable applications like Netflix, Messenger and Truecaller. It doesn't end there. The phone also goes with upwards of six pre-presented amusements. You do get the decision to uninstall all the outcast applications anyway they do take up a sensible bit of open space on the phone.

There's in like manner the issue of the livelinesss being excessively overpowering which achieves an uneven experience when pushing the phone. Honestly, even while essentially looking past menus, you may see a coincidental slack which proceeds to show how generous the skin is by and large.

Regard's decision of clinging to the developing Kirin 659 chipset furthermore could be put to blame here, anyway all around, you should be content with the sheer proportion of customisations that EMUI gives. In a perfect world, customers do get a climb to Android Oreo 8.1 or even Android P when it's open.

Performance: 6/10


The Kirin 659 SoC is something that we've seen on an impressive proportion of Huawei and Honor devices over the span of the latest couple of months. It was pushed as a chip for its mid-go commitments like the Honor 9i and the Honor 7X, anyway we've moreover watched the chipset feature on the Rs 10,999 assessed Honor 9 Lite and the fundamentally higher esteemed Huawei P20 Lite.

Execution wise, the Honor 9N is check of the way that the Kirin 659 is beginning to age. Huawei starting late moved the Kirin 710 which is depended upon to be the successor to the 659, yet until the point when additionally see, you are up 'til now remained with the more prepared 16 nm chip. While less raised amusements like Leo's Fortune and Alto's Adventure played fine, moving to even unobtrusively heavier titles exhibited a sharp drop in surfaces and what's more layouts.

Much the same as the Huawei P20 Pro, the Honor 9N fails to run heavier titles like Asphalt Xtreme and Shadowguns Legends. I saw some headway issues, and also more a la mode entertainments like Asphalt 9, essentially don't show up on the Play Store. Thermally, I didn't perceive any critical warming issues even with extended gaming sessions.

Concerning sound quality, it was not all that terrible through the headphones with balanced yield. The mono speaker isn't unnecessarily phenomenal either yet it gets adequately loud. Call quality was unimaginable additionally, yet since of the phone having a minor earpiece, you do need to ensure that you are holding the phone consummately to have the ability to hear in a perfect world. This appears to be an issue that ought to be tended to as we had a comparative issue with the Huawei P20 Lite moreover.


Camera: 7.5/10

On the off chance that there must be one section where the Honor 9N will daze you, it no two ways about it is the camera. The Honor 9N runs with a twofold purpose of meeting setup on the back which contains a 13 MP f/2.2 gap fundamental purpose of union close-by a 2 MP sensor proposed for getting essentialness data. This may emit an impression of being commendable on paper yet the outcomes are greatly wonderful, given the confinement.

The camera interface is fundamental and simple to wind up changed in accordance with. You swipe flawless to get to every single one of the modes which meld — Pro Mode, AR Lens mode, Night Shot, Light Painting, Panorama, Timelapse and HDR modes. Swiping to the opposite side, obviously, enables you to get to the camera settings. There's no AI mode here which you do get on premium Honor gadgets.

Moving to the execution of the back cameras, tones and skin tones stayed unprejudiced, while the dynamic range came up short affecting overexposed zones in marvelously lit conditions. This related with the front camera also. [Refer to selfies in the Flickr collection below]

Centering speeds were snappy in sunlight at any rate that drove forward through a shot once you moved to dimmer lighting. In low-lighting conditions, the obsession precision was not up to the check with most photographs giving off an impression of being foggy, most perfect circumstance. In the event that you do hold tight firm, for a second or two, you will wind up with numerous better than typical shots with unimaginable levels of detail and sharpness.

The depiction mode with the bokeh influence on, passed on sharp and speedy looking pictures in sunshine in any case edge conspicuous confirmation was common all things considered. I wound up with photographs in which individuals and furthermore even request not disengaging from the foundations unequivocally. The standard selfie mode is more immaculate here as the 16 MP sensor packs in a basic punch.

Concerning the unquestionable modes, I explored different avenues regarding the scene and night shot mode with regular outcomes. While scene neglects to pack in an amazing extent of detail, night mode enhanced complete a than ordinary showing up as for in low-lighting conditions. HDR had every one of the reserves of being silly to me as it had little effect to pictures, even while looking.

Video recording (topped at 1080p) on the Honor 9N was standard with everything being overexposed while utilizing the selfie camera. The dynamic range was better with the back camera, yet the records are irrationally jerky paying little mind to being clear and you have to an incredible degree solid hands to keep the narrative jitter free.

When in doubt, the camera execution on the Honor 9N is maybe superior to the Moto G6, given the regard go, yet definitely no place near the Redmi Note 5 Pro's camera yield. All around, the remote injury up being a not too frightful well ordered obliging snapper yet in the event that you are contemplating getting it just for the camera, you should need to look somewhere else.

Battery Life: 7/10


I was shocked at first watching the Honor 9N pack a 3,000 mAh battery, yet finished my period of testing the contraption, I returned floored.

While our standard PC Mark Work 2.0 Battery Life test scarcely influenced it to the 7-hour to check, customary use saw it last well past multi day with pleasant use. Certainly, even on the busiest of days with a huge amount of calls and messages surviving, the Honor 9N still had in excess of 20 percent of battery life left before I related it to for charging. This is positively respectable considering the telephone runs a 16 nm chip. Respect needs to enhance charging speeds at any rate as it took me over 2 hours to juice the telephone up from around 15 percent to 90 percent.

Verdict and Price in India


The Honor 9i was moved at a cost of Rs 17,999 a year earlier, which was a little on the higher side of things, considering how the remote performed. The Honor 9N is a 2018 revive of the remote with an indent. In any case, Honor cut the cost of the remote by Rs 6,000 making it certainly influencing.

As a consistently growing number of producers begin to pack more into their spending responsibilities, even with a sticker cost of Rs 11,999, the Honor 9N goes straight up against the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 and the Moto G6 which are two extraordinarily convincing gadgets at the cost. The Honor 9N isn't a swap for the Honor 9 Lite, in any case could be viewed as an option with similar specs, yet with an indent. In the event that you are not to amped up for the score, the 9 Lite still upgrades for a buy.

While it coordinates the idea of both the Moto G6 and the ZenFone Max Pro M1 to the extent camera execution and looks substantially more captivating than both the phones, its the developing chipset joined with the EMUI skin which chops the Honor 9N down. Everything considered, if you require a score on your phone, neither of its contenders have that on offer, so it makes picking the phones less complex for you.
