Huawei P9

Since the arrival of the Nokia 808 PureView manufacturers have been battling ever harder to create the very finest phone camera. We’ve seen everything from mainstream adoption of optical image stabilisation to custom technologies like LG’s laser autofocus and HTC’s Ultrapixels – which reappeared on the new HTC 10. The P9 is Huawei’s stab at the title and sees the firm team up with photography legend Leica to create what it’s calling “the ultimate camera-phone”. It features a nifty dual-lens rear camera setup similar to the one Apple’s rumoured to be working on for its fabled iPhone 7, and there’s definitely some truth to Huawei’s claim. But be warned, its custom imaging software shares some of proper Leica cameras’ “eccentricities”. This, combined with ongoing issues with Huawei’s EMUI Android skin, make the P9 a good, but not great, smartphone.
