The Huawei Mate 9 and Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design are two of the hottest phones of Huawei right now.

Huawei Mate 9

Though they are both great phones and shares almost similar specs and features, there is a quite obvious price gap between the two smartphones. The Huawei Mate 9 is retailed at a price tag of $767, while the Porsche Design Mate 9 costs around $1500. Now, let's begin the comparison.

According to Huawei Mall sources, though both phones are quite large, the body designs for both phones are perfect that users will find them easy on the hands. However, there is one issue. Aside from metal cases scratching so easy, the Porsche design's metal case tends to get a lot of fingerprints which can make it look untidy. Also, the Fingerprint Sensor on the Mate 9 has faster reaction time compared to the Porsche Design.

The Mate 9 features a 5.9 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen (16M colors) with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. On the other hand, the Porsche Design Mate 9 features a 5.5 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen (16M colors) with 1440 x 2560 pixels. Both smartphones offer bright and sharp displays, but the Porsche Design Mate 9 offers a little bit higher.

Both smartphones house a non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. However, because the Porsche Design has a much powerful screen, its battery life tends to suffer. As reported, in terms of gaming, the Mate 9 can last for 5 hours and 12 minutes. But for the Porsche Design Mate 9, it only lasts for 4 hours and 34 minutes.

Camera specs between the two smartphones are no different from each other. Both smartphones feature a Dual 20 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, a 8 MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture, and both shoots at [email protected] As with camera performance, photos reveal crisp and full details.

The Porsche Design has its impressive strengths but I don't think it will outdo the Huawei Mate 9 pro.  After all, a thrilling battery performance matters and that's the main foundation of the latter.
