Our Verdict

Another day and another mid-range smartphone from Huawei with flagship specs and super slim ergonomic design. The device houses a gorgeous display which comes with quite robust configurations underneath. The phone indeed plays a vital role whether it’s about performance, visuals or a camera. The only hiccups we’ve heard is that onboard memory could certainly be bigger and the battery doesn’t deliver a massive backup for intense gaming. Other than that, Honor 9N definitely earns its spot.
