Wiki Info: The Mate 9 is a phablet with all-metal body. It uses a 5.9-inch display, with Full HD resolution (1920×1080 pixels) and sloping 2.5D shielded glass. The Mate 9 also included FPC1025 fingerprint sensor, which produced by Fingerprint Cards of Sweden. The fingerprint sensor uses a 4-level security system for speed and accuracy. The Mate 9 has an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset, which features an ARM Cortex-A73/A53 Octa-core CPU and Mali G71 Octa-core GPU, which reduces power consumption by 15 percent.

Final Verdict: The Huawei Mate 9 Pro is perfect for VR use. With its long battery life, upgradable memory and crisp display it can showcase almost any Daydream app or game just like the developers would have wanted. But its price still remains high and getting one on the cheap will not be easy. But if you do get one cheap (I can’t recommend paying full price) then you will have yourself a great VR ready phone that should deal with most day-by-day use as well. While not perfect its one of those phones that has the endurance to last longer and work harder than many other, more powerful phones released at the same time.
