Huawei P9 Real Camera Review: Is this “Leica” legit?

The most interesting things about Huawei’s P9 are the dual camera sensors on the back. This is the first device born of the collaboration between Huawei and Leica, and it’s not without a little controversy. While Huawei representatives insist that Leica was an active partner in developing the camera hardware and software for the P9, many are still concerned this might only be a branding exercise. To see if this experiment is successful, we used the P9 for five days around Los Angeles, collecting samples in varying lighting conditions, and now we’re ready to report our results. Here’s our Huawei real camera review!

Nobody proved that there is 2 sensors. till then it just a bullshit. Cover one lense and you’ll see no difference.

First Name Best Name says:

P9 is cool, I like the design more than Axon 7, the camera alone could draw me away from Axon. I like the p9 more but Axon’s bang for buck is tempting.

Hi people!
My girlfriend currently uses a nexus 5, coming from an Iphone. She really likes android now. Problem is, her nexus 5 slowly dies. So her standards for usability are pretty high (without knowing it) and she also is no Tech enthusiast, she is quite the opposite. She doesn’t like to customize her phone with themes or something, she just wants to use it. So my question to you all is: would you recommend a Huawei phone (mainly because of EMUI) to someone like her?
Keep in mind, she just knows stock android by now and will probably be irritated by the emui look.
I would really like to know if you know people that are no enthusiast and use a huawei. Is the featureset overkill for these people?
