Huawei & Apple have the two best Super Flagship Smartphones. after Samsung’s fiasco with its Galaxy Note 7 last year. The iPhone 7 Plus is the Most Advanced Large-Screen phone with iOS , After Samsung’s Fiasco with its Galaxy Note 7 last year. The Huawei Mate 9 is Least at the moment, the most advanced Large Android OS phone.
The Specifications, Benchmark Results, and Everyday experience of both devices are outstanding, but there are a surprising number of details in which they differ. This includes the functionality of the display, Finish Elements, Their software options, Battery Life, & Dual Rear-Facing Cameras – offered by both products. A comparison of these can help buyers decide whether the Apple iPhone 7 Plus OR Huawei Mate 9 or would be a better choice.
Build & Design
Both These smartphones Have a Metal body with a sturdy, flagship-worthy appearance. Although the Huawei’s Display is Larger than the iPhone 7 Plus, their Weight & Dimensions are quite similar. To be Precise, the Mate 9 is a tad bit wider and taller, while Apple’s device is slightly Lighter & Slimmer. The differences in all of these measurements is less than 1%.
The iPhone 7 Plus’ oleophobic coating attracts far fewer fingerprints than the Gorilla Glass 3 front of the Mate 9, so users will feel the need to polish the Huawei with their clothes much more often. What also tips the scale to Apple’s side is its IP67 certificate, making the iPhone 7 Plus water and dust proof (if submerged under 1 meter of water for less than 30 minutes).
The Huawei model has a slightly rounded back, unlike the perfectly flat iPhone, and it therefore feels more natural to hold. However, this feeling fades with time, given that the surface of the Chinese phone is slightly smoother and it easily slides off the hand.
Double rear-facing cameras have become an expected feature of flagship smartphones, and it’s perfectly natural that both the iPhone 7 Plus & Huawei Mate 9offer them: however, these employ entirely different concepts.
The iPhone 7 Plus is a far better choice, at least in poor lighting conditions, because its camera offers a much better dynamic range, less noise, more details, and livelier colors. This isn’t surprising, given that Apple’s offering has two 12-megapixel sensors, one of which offers a 28-mm lens with more contemporary aperture of f/1.8 and OSI, while the other has a 56-mm lens and aperture of f/2.8. The second camera on Apple’s phone 7 Plus does not offer as much creativity potential as the black and white lens on the Huawei Mate 9, but it very much comes in handy when the user wants to zoom in on something or do a bokeh portrait—one where the subject is in focus but the background is Blurred Out.
Whereas, Huawei has co-branded its camera with Leica, and it offers both a 12-MP RGB sensor and a 20-megapixel black and white sensor, both of which offer optical image stabilization and an unimpressive f/2.2 aperture. The black and white sensor really increases creative freedom when shooting, and is one of the best sensors featured on any Android phone under poor lighting conditions. Still, it’s not much help for those who want to take color images. And despite the fact that the RGB 12-MP Sensor offers above average quality for Android OS phones, it’s not at all the best available. Manually setting the shooting parameters helps a lot, but potential users should in mind that this is a smartphone and not a DSLR.
The camera arrangement offered by Apple is much better for a phone, and pictures taken with the iPhone 7 Plus are generally better than those taken by the Huawei Mate 9.
Both Huawei’s & Apple’s devices offer the Same 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) Resolution, but Sizes of Screens are different, Resulting in slightly different Pixel densities. The 5.9-inch display featured on Mate 9 offers 373 ppi, less than the 401 ppi offered by the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. However, no difference in imaging sharpness can be detected with the naked eye, and both phones offer immaculately sharp imaging on their IPC LCD displays.
What’s more, all the other features of these two screens are equally above average, whether it’s color saturation and realistic color imaging, or contrast and usability when exposed to direct sunlight.
Despite this, the everyday experience with the Mate 9’s display is better due to the larger screen area. Although the phones differ less than 1% in their overall dimensions, the screen-to-body ratio offered by Huawei amounts to impressive 76.9%, compared to Apple’s 68.1%. What this means in layman’s terms is that the display bezels on the Mate 9 are noticeably smaller than on the iPhone 7 Plus. Partially, this is a result of Apple’s large physical Home button, While the (Back, Home, and Menu) Android Control Keys are included on display itself.
Winner: Huawei Mate 9
