HONOR 9S Features
Featuring a 5.45-inch FullView Display with a 1440 x 720-pixel resolution, the HONOR 9S display emits far less blue light, obtaining the Eye Comfort Certification from TÜV Rheinland. Not only does the new technology make the 9S more comfortable to use, but it also maintains a very high color range, ideal for those who spend lots of time on their smartphones.
When it comes to weight, the HONOR 9S is really light at just 144 grams and features a slim bezel that is 8.35mm thin. Latest Magic UI 3.1 Enables Enhanced UX Design and User-Friendly Features Kitted out with the latest Magic UI 3.1, the HONOR 9S features an all-new Dark Mode which allows users to navigate their smartphone more comfortably. Supported by ergonomics research, the Dark Mode strikes an optimal contrast between text and the background to enhance the overall reading experience. Moreover, color saturation is also modified to ensure greater consistency between the normal mode and Dark Mode.
In terms of camera, the HONOR 9S features an 8MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture on the back. Supported by advanced technologies, the 8MP main camera is capable of taking shots of panoramas and other pro-grade photos while the 5MP front camera with enhanced Beauty Mode delivers perfect selfies every time.
In addition to the impressive single camera at the back, the HONOR 9S offers superior battery life. Powered by a 3020mAh battery, the device can easily take you from day to night, supporting up to 21 hours of phone calls and 17 hours of video playback. It also comes with 32GB of storage which can be expanded by a microSD card (up to 512GB), as well as two independent SIM card slots so you can enjoy more storage and still have separate SIM cards for work and personal use.
Unfortunately, the HONOR 9S lacks Google apps and services and relies on Huawei Mobile Services instead.
