Looks like what happens on a laptop when the LCD has been squashed. I'd return it under warranty.

I purchased it in January. Pbtech want me to send it to Auckland for repair, I can't however as it's a work phone and I can't be without it being the manager of 25 staff. So I have to wear it for now until I can afford a new phone at which point this will go in for repairs and then be sold when fixed.

I'm also really enjoying it. Not seeing any reason to change phones in the near future.

i was considering the G4 before i brought the mate 9.

 

battery life is great, couple of hours using google maps (full brightness), couple of hours browsing the web, and a few hours streaming music/video to chromecast (at 50% brightness) and im down to about 50% battery. Takes about 45 mins to get it back to about 90+% on the charger.

 

camera is pretty good but i havent really compared it to other phones since ive had it.

Battery life is the main reason I got this phone and it doesn't disappoint. Easily lasts mute the whole day and even well into a second. Camera is good enough though there are better options out there if you're a really keen mobile photographer. The quality is fine in general but it can be slow to focus compared to something like an s7. It's also not as good in low light as that phone. I'm happy with the camera in general though.

I replaced my LG G4 with the Mate 9 and couldn't be happier with it. The camera, in "auto" mode is probably about the same, if a touch worse in low light conditions, but as soon as you switch it to "pro", it has the potential to blow the G4 out of the water. Sure, there's a bit of a learning curve there, but it's definitely worth taking the time to experiment.

Anyone else find their fingerprint reader activating when in your pocket and you end up locked out for 30 minutes? Happens all the same time.

Hmmm. Nope.

which way do you have it in your pocket? screen towards you or camera towards you?
