Android version and market relevance

In June 2018 Honor company introduced its new smartphone Honor 9i. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 8 Oreo.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 8 Oreo already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

Average capacity Honor 9i battery received a volume of 3 000 mAh. In this case, the smartphone has big touchscreen IPS LCD with diagonal 5.84″. As it is now fashionable in smartphone design, this model also received a rectangle-shaped cutout above the screen.

The thickness of the body is 7.7 mm. This is a very thick case, we advise you to look in our catalog smartphones with thin cases, which fit comfortably in your hand.

Main camera and selfie camera

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (13 MP with a regular lens + 2 MP Depth sensor) was received by Honor 9i. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 16 MP Wide. This is a very good camera to take selfie. You will want to do them all the time and publish to the Instagram :)

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Honor 9i received 8-core processor HiSilicon Kirin 659. The amount of RAM in it is 4 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 64/128 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSD up to 256 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Honor 9i: buy or not to buy?

In June 2018 begin sales of a new smartphone Honor 9i. The manufacturer said the price of $220 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a large touch screen, a good main camera, a very high quality front camera, a good battery and a cherry on the cake is a powerful processor.

As a result, in 2018 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.
