How is the camera quality in Huawei p9 Smartphone?

First of all, having two cameras allow the system to better understand the distance to objects, which helps with autofocus and other tricks – extreme? Huawei p9 adds laser assistance to this focus system. The performance is better than what Huawei already offered. The two cameras have 12-megapixel sensors, both with lenses with a maximum aperture f / 2.2. In the case of the Huawei P9 they have a size of 1.25 microns, which is similar to that of an iPhone 6s, significantly smaller than those of a Galaxy S7.

The double sensor brings quality

The Huawei P9 takes very good photos, under most circumstances. There are some modes that work really well such as night mode, monochrome or panoramic and others, such as recording video or HDR. On the mobile screen it looks really good. It has quite realistic color, good white balance and a lot of detail, possibly due to the fact of merging the info of the two sensors.


This is a Leica thing, or at least it hits a lot. It is not about de-saturating the images, it is not a typical filter. Here the sensor collects the information in a range of grayish tones, in monochrome. The detail it captures is really remarkable, also the dynamic range on its particular scale. If you like this type of photography, you can have a good time with its 12 megapixels.

Frontal camera

The front camera of the P9 is 8 megapixels, with a wide-angle lens with a maximum aperture of f / 2.4. The result of the shots is quite satisfactory, in colors and definition. There is no lack of the ‘Perfect Selfie’ mode that “beautifies” us, and this time it is also transferable to video. There is also a flash mode that is done with the light from the screen.


Panoramas are one of the best-resolved modes on the P9, and with few rivals on the market. They come out easy and strange areas rarely appear with the joints. It is also quite effective with the areas where the exposure is changed. The resulting files go above 22 megapixels if the shot is vertically, and we go to 30 megapixels in the 180 degree horizontal sweeps.

Night mode

There is an “auto” option that determines the time necessary for a good shot. It makes excellent images, which can take up to 30 seconds, which is the maximum programmable time. The photos that result in this way are 8 megapixels.

No 4K in the video

The video quality is average, especially in good light, and as long as we talk about 1080p at 60 images per second. We can go down to 720p by increasing the speed to 120 images per second. There is not as much detail as we have in photo, the dynamic range is fair, and the continuous autofocus is a bit clunky. There is no 4K mode on this phone, which sounds weird for a model that wants to be important when it comes to the camera. Possibly it has to do with the ability of the hardware to handle this amount of information with guarantees.
