This is another article of me comparing two phones. In choosing what phones I would compare, I pick one phone that is currently buzzing in the world of technology and the another phone I picked is something I feel would best match it (but sometimes when I feel lazy, I just pick a random phone but don't worry, I try to make it legit as possible...lol). Now, before we compare the two phones, let's first talk about the latest news regarding the iPhone.
The 5-second Video Terrorizing iPhone Users
According to reports, there is a 5-second video getting viral. To other phone brands, viewing the video won't cause any effect or whatsoever (except for the eating away your MB allocation), but for the iPhone phones, it's a different story. Once viewed on an iPhone, the video will cause the iPhone to lock up and reset.
About any information regarding other effects caused by the video, there are none so far aside from what we know. But still, please be careful, because there might be more than just the iPhone locking up and resetting that we have yet to discover. Also, for the non-iPhone users, the 5-second bug video may not have any effect on your phones, but it is still best to avoid it because we might not know that there might be some effect that is not as obvious compared to the effect it has towards the iPhone phones.
Now that we cleared that up, let's now proceed to the comparing part:
iPhone 7 versus Huawei Mate 9 Pro
Network. For the iPhone 7's networks, it is GSM, CDMA, HSPA, EVDO, and LTE. As for the Mate 9 Pro, the networks are GSM, CDMA, HSPA, EVDO, and LTE. This round is a tie.
Body. iPhone 7's body dimensions and weight is 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm and 138 g. While Mate 9 Pro's is 156.9 x 78.9 x 7.9 mm and 190 g. I like large phones, but I don't like heavy phones. In this case, I think I'm going to give this round to the Mate 9 Pro. Personally, I find tiny phones cute, but in terms of using it, it's really hard to use a tiny phone with large hands.
Display. For iPhone 7's screen type, size and resolution, it is LED-backlit IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 4.7 inches, and 750 x 1334 pixels. The Mate 9 Pro, on the other hand, it is IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 5.9 inches, and 1080 x 1920 pixels. Because of my large hands, Mate 9 Pro wins this round.
Platform. The iPhone 7's OS, Chipset, CPU, and GPU is iOS 10.0.1, upgradable to iOS 10.1, Apple A10 Fusion, Quad-core 2.34 GHz, and six-core graphics for its GPU. The Mate 9 Pro, on the other hand, is Android OS, v7.0 (Nougat), Hisilicon Kirin 960, Octa-core (4x2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A53), and Mali-G71 MP8. Personally, this is always a tough decision, because each has its own strengths and weaknesses. I think I will go with Mate 9 Pro's OS.
Memory. Apple's iPhone 7 internal memory is 32/128/256 GB and 2 GB RAM. While the Mate 9 Pro is 64 GB, 4 GB RAM. As a person who loves to kill time by playing mobile games, high RAM is a must. Mate 9 Pro wins again.
Camera. Rear camera, front camera, and video for the iPhone 7 is 12 MP, 7 MP, and 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30/60/120fps, 720p@240fps. As for the Mate 9 Pro, it is 20 MP, 8 MP, and 2160p@30fps. Mate 9 Pro wins this round.
Battery. iPhone 7 battery is 1960 mAh. Talk time is 14 hrs and music play is 40 hrs. While the Mate 9 Pro's battery is 4000 mAh. Since there is no information about its talk time, music play, and standby time, for the Mate 9 Pro, I will give this round to the iPhone 7.
Features. For the iPhone 7, the features are Fingerprint, Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Compass, Barometer, and it has Siri. And as for the Mate 9 Pro features, the features are Fingerprint, Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Barometer, Compass, and fast battery charging. This is tricky. Yeah, it's great to have a fast battery charging feature, but one must also consider the battery life because if you need to be constantly charging, it will really affect the battery life of the phone. This round goes to the iPhone 7.
The tally is iPhone 7 with 2 wins and Mate 9 Pro with 5 wins, thus making the Mate 9 Pro the winner. To the readers, you may agree or disagree with my decision. But remember, this decision is solely based on my preference. If you have any comments or suggestions, please do inform me in the comment section. I would like to hear from you.
