It comes in three types of screens LTPS DCI-P3. The Honor 8, Honor 9 have screens of 5.2 and 5.15-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), respectively, so that the screen of 5.7 inches of the Honor 8 Pro has a definition QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels).</p> <p>Here, the three screens should be of the same quality, as it is based on the same technological generation, this is not on this point that we will be able to differentiate between the two.</p> <p><a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank"><img src="" /></a></p> <h2>Design</h2> <p>If we find that the Honor 8 Pro looked like a great deal to the iPhone 7 Plus Apple during our test, this is not the case, the Honor 9, which keeps the design, rather unique, of Honor 8.</p> <p><a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank"><img src="" /></a></p> <p>We thus find the back glass iridescent chassis, and a little curved to conform to the shape of the hand. Like on the Huawei P10, the fingerprint reader has been moved to the front of the phone, at the level of the Home key. The back wins, therefore, in sobriety, there are (as always with the manufacturer now) a system of double camera.</p> <h2>Performance</h2> <p>The Honor 9 Honor 8 Pro include a Kirin 960, the new chip high-end Huawei that was already to be found in the P10 and the Mate 9. The chip is supported by 4 or 6 Gb of RAM depending on the version, enough to ensure good performance in multi-tasking.</p> <p><a href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank"><img src="" /></a></p> <p>This chip is 10 to 18% more powerful depending on the applications that the Kirin 950 that can be found in the Honor 8. She holds the head to the other chips the top end of the market like the Snapdragon 835, although the latter has superior fineness of engraving is only 10 nm. The Honor 8 does not offer a model with more than 4 Gb of RAM, even if this amount of memory is still more than sufficient today.</p> <p>The storage is also increased from one generation to the other, the Honor 8 Pro and the Honor 9 offer between 64 and 128 Gb of storage, while the Honor 8 offered only 32 or 64 Gb of storage.
