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.
