Problem is... There's a free case in the box (as well as a screen protector).

Found these great comparisons showing the Camera and Video Quality, the Camera quality v the iPhone 7 plus was eye opening and showed how impressive the sensors are on the Mate 9.

Wow that looks amazing seriously making me want to switch to this phone.
Was there any major difference with the Mate 9 vs the Mate 9 Pro versions? (someone mentioned there might be a pro version?)

The wife and I brought each other one for a Xmas present.

 

So for I've been really impressed, and i was a little worried it might be a little big but it hasn't really presented a problem yet.

 

Also the update to b136 of EMUI is a step in the right direction with the notifications.

 

Any suggestions on a case? wife likes one with cards, and i just want something that isnt slippery and can take a bump or 3 with out being too large.

You know there's a case inside the box, right?

 

I just got my replacement today. Update was welcome and notifications are a lot better now. The Mate 9 is so fast, so impressed.

 Hi Jase,

 

Just an FYI my better half just ordered a whole lot on AliExpress including the leather one Freitasm recommended, a wood case, gel case etc. plus tempered glass screen protector. 

 

Here is a link https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=mate+9+cases&opensearch=true

Hi Jase,

 

From previous experience we have had no issues getting gear from Ali Express, I'll let you know if this changes with the current batch. BTW they sent out notifications for all the orders so they all now show as sent and you can track them in transit.

 

For my wife's phone I lucked out and picked up on Trademe a Mate9 folio case from a local guy who bought the wrong one on Amazon got it for a good price, Big plus I had the case ready for Christmas and some protection until the ordered cases arrive.

anyone else having issues with slow notifications? sometimes i dont get any notifications till i unlock my phone which is rather annoying

 

also i have a game i play and it seems that every night the phone cleans up some cache data so every morning the game has to re-download content. this is not ideal as i do go without signal a bit as i work on a ship so with out re-downloading the data i cant play the game.

Notifications okay here, we have a couple of devices that share notifications Samsung tablet and the Mate 9 I have noticed they synchronize nicely. 

 

I'm assuming you downloaded the 650MB update and installed it ?. The reason why is that it does the following '...Huawei has started rolling out a software update to the Mate 9 smartphone. The update fixes some of the software issues that affected notifications on the device as well as bring some improvements to camera...'

 

Here is the rest of the article. http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/huawei-mate-9-receiving-software-update-with-notification-bug-fix-and-camera-improvements-1632616?site=classic
