|DISPLAY Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots))|
|Display Type||LCD display|
|Display Technology||LTPS TFT|
|Screen Size (Display Size)||5.15"||Better than 59 % of phones rated.|
|Screen Resolution (Display Resolution)||1920 x 1080 pixels||Better than 80 % of phones rated.|

The screen size reaches 5.15" inches. Smaller phone displays are not necessarily a disadvantage. They are easier to use with one hand. However, displays of these sizes don't provide the same experience when watching videos or playing games, so they're better suited for less demanding users. It means, if you're a basic user and you don't expect to use your phone for activities like watching videos or playing games on regular basis, this size is perfectly adequate. LCD displays are currently taking a back seat. This is mainly due to higher power consumption. In addition, they have the disadvantage of lower colour contrast, which can be reflected e.g. in the resulting photos. On the other hand, phones with LCD displays are in general cheaper than those with OLED technology.
Display Resolution of Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots)) is 1920 x 1080 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px. If you want a perfect picture, focus on pixel density in addition to resolution. This number indicates how sharp the image will be. Best phones today have a display fineness of 450 ppi or higher, but the today´s average is around 350-400 ppi. That should be enough for you to enjoy a fine and sharp image. This model has a pixel density of 428 ppi.
|PROCESSOR Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots))|
|Processor Type (CPU)||Hisilicon Kirin 960 + i6 co-processor|
|Clock Speed||2.4 GHz||Better than 88 % of phones rated.|
|Processor Core Qty||8-core||Better than 99 % of phones rated.|
|64-bit Architecture||Yes||Better than 81 % of phones rated.|
|Graphics System (GPU)||Mali G71 MP8|
The processor type of the Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots)) is Hisilicon Kirin 960 + i6 co-processor. The number of processor cores is 8. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications. Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots)) is provided with processor´s frequency of 2.4 GHz. Normally today you will find this value between 1.8 and 2.8 GHz, and the higher the number, the faster the response of the phone. The processor frequency will thus be one of the important parameters if you are looking for a phone capable of managing several requests at once without major problems.
The processor also includes the graphics accelerator Mali G71 MP8.
|MEMORY Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots))|
|RAM||4 GB||Better than 80 % of phones rated.|
|Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity)||64 GB||Better than 78 % of phones rated.|
|Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory)||microSDHC, microSDXC - up to 256 GB|
The phone is provided with an internal memory of 64 GB. Internal storage capacity is often a key parameter, as it determines how many files, photos, apps and more your phone can store. If you expect to store low thousands of photos, some songs, few movies or games on your phone, then you can easily get by with a medium memory size. Phones with this size of memory also has the advantage of a lower purchase price. If you don't plan to use your phone for 4K video creation and storage, using hundreds of apps etc. then you should feel free to go with this memory size. Fortunately, manufacturers nowadays think of all users and therefore offer phone models with different memory sizes so that everyone can choose what suits them.
In addition, if you need more memory, this model offers the option of inserting a memory card to increase the storage size.
Operating memory significantly affects the performance of the entire phone. Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots)) has an operating memory of 4 GB. Phones with less than 4 GB of RAM are better suited for undemanding users who use phone more for basic needs and some essential applications only. But if you are a heavy user, reach for at least 6 to 8 GB of RAM, which is the standard today, or 12 GB for the really demanding ones.

The rear camera of the Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots)) is equipped with 2 lenses. A larger number of lenses usually results in better quality photo, as each lens is designed differently: usually as a macro lens, telephoto lens or wide-angle lens. Macro lens is used for great close-ups, telephoto lens is designed for capturing objects in the distance as it often has an optical zoom, and wide-angle lens will take great landscape photos where you need a larger field of view. A high resolution lens alone does not necessarily mean high quality photos. The main lens in this has a resolution of 20 Megapixel. However, if you are looking for perfect photos, in addition to resolution, don't forget to focus on at other parameters such as lens aperture or pixel size. Luminance is one of the main factors determining the quality of a photograph. Commonly today, this value ranges between F/1.8 and F/2.2. However, best photomobiles have an aperture of up to F/1.2. Value indicates how much light passes through the sensor and the lower it is, the better the quality of the photos. Main lens here is equipped with F/2.2.
The resolution reaches size of 12 Megapixel.
The front camera of phone Honor 9 (Dual-SIM (SIM1 and SIM2/MicroSD slots)) has one lens. This number of lenses is standard on most smartphones nowadays. The resolution of main lens reaches 8 Megapixel. Again, it should be noted that resolution is not the only factor affecting the quality of the front camera photo.
