    Honor 9 Charm Sea Blue SIM Free UKIn the past few years, Honor has slowly stolen the limelight from a number of established global brands.

    Honor’s phones have evolved from simple and affordable options, to some of the most sought after models in the current market. All without sacrificing their relatively low price tags.

    Their 2017 flagship, the Honor 9, has specifications to rival the cream of the smartphone world. Impressive dual camera technology is matched by some beautiful industrial design and powerful processing.

    Pound for pound, this could well be the best power-to-price available in 2017.

    Honor 9 Features

    Honor 9 SIM Free UK RearIf you want premier features at a low price, then the Honor 9 is the phone for you. The Huawei Kirin 960 processor is on a par with chips from Qualcomm and Samsung, delivering a high speed octa-core performance and top-level graphical fidelity.

    The rear of the phone houses a dual camera set up. This includes one 20MP monochrome (black & white) sensor, flanked by a 12MP RGB module.

    Black and white photography can be natively, rather than with post-processing filters. The combination of sensors can also provide a hybrid 2x optical zoom, plus additional Bokeh depth-of-field effects.

    The screen is a fairly standard 1080 x 1920 panel, at a moderately sized 5.15″. Probably the least exciting part of the phone, this is where savings have likely been made. Still the size and resolution are perfectly acceptable to most.

    Other notable features include the front-adorned fingerprint sensor with ceramic cover. This also doubles as the home button and navigation key. The rear of the phone is stunning too, with a 15-layer optical coating to the glass that reflects light at every angle.
