Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: the gap is closing


Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: design and finish


the Galaxy S7 edge is now available for about 600 euros, while my counterpart released six months later, the Mate 9, costs around 700 euros. For this price, the Huawei terminal provides a superior internal memory, and it is considerably larger.

in terms of design, it would be more appropriate to compare the Mate 9 Pro with the Galaxy S7 edge, since they are both the same size and have a design to the bevelled slices.

the Mate 9 is considerably larger with 5.9 inches. It has unusual bevelled slices, which makes its thinner profile and display appear proportionally larger compared to the full size of the terminal. Another notable difference in the finish, it’s its water-resistance: Galaxy S7 edge can survive a bath, while the Mate 9 is not waterproof certified.

the two terminals have an aluminum siding. Galaxy S7 edge is protected from impacts and scratches with a Gorilla Glass 4, while for the 9 Mate, it’s a Gorilla Glass 3 that provides protection. This would give the advantage to the first for the anti-scratch protection, but Huawei has thought of sticking a film on the glass.

Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: quality screen


for my Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung chose a Super AMOLED screen, resulting in better contrast and resolution rates. Huawei screen, however, is more brightly and has a more marked white balance.


The main difference between the two devices is their optimization for virtual reality. Samsung provides helmets of virtual reality with some of its mobile packs. Huawei said that my Mate 9 is compatible with Daydream, but it remains skeptical about the ability of the display in Full-HD really lends itself to the exploration of virtual reality.

the Mate 9 dual-SIM version is available on the french market. The edge S7, for its part, has a version with a single SIM. That said, the two smartphones are equipped with a microSD slot so that you can share your pictures or MP3 files.

Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: software interface

by default, the interface of the Huawei Mate 9 is more modern than that of the Galaxy S7 edge. The latter is however safer, thanks to monthly security updates. The news of Nougat are available on the Huawei terminal, since the Chinese automaker has tried to optimize its use of the latest in Android.


Thanks to the improvements made by the machine learning, the system is able to recognize the applications and features you use the most, and keep them in memory. In addition, memory is cleaned continuously and the applications that you are not likely to use are purely and simply removed from the system.

Unfortunately, Huawei still makes too much with its improvements and starts apart from the rest – but only in a few areas. Sometimes, notifications will not be received and it will be not informed of SMS who have just arrived. Huawei is trying to fill these gaps, as promised to us during our interview.






Compared to the 9 Mate, the Galaxy S7 edge takes a shot of old

what do you think?






Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: camera

Huawei has all the means to have a significant impact on the market thanks to its double signed module Leica, if only the software did not worsen the quality of the photos in automatic adjustment. Grand opening mode generates a bokeh effect totally implausible, and the treatment of more normal shots will prevent you to get perfect results. That said, the Mate 9 takes better pictures and it is more pleasant for the semi-professional thanks to its Pro Mode and its RAW format.


Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: autonomy


autonomy on these two terminals is good, and everyone will be able to hold approximately a day and a half. For power users, that are excellent choices, because Mate 9 and the edge S7 can face longer working days. But in the case Mate 9, these brilliant performance applies only for the model to single SIM. Both smartphones also have a lightning-fast recharge: for the 9 Mate, it’s possible with USB Type-C compatible Chargers.

Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: sound quality


the sound quality on the Mate 9 is amazing. On one side the two internal speakers can return a vertically two channel output or a stereo system horizontally. On the other hand, the quality of the noise reduction for calls is above average. Even in a noisy environment with music or on the dock of the metro with trains arriving, you can perceive the voice too clear that if you take the call on the landline of your office.

Huawei Mate 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: final verdict


before the release of Mate 9, this comparison, as we said at the beginning, is only temporary. Actually, Mate 9 should be placed in the competitor Note7 . As the latter has been withdrawn from the market, the Mate 9 was presented as the best alternative on the market.


9 Mate, thanks to its design to the bevelled slices, better resolution and a larger internal memory, can become the most formidable competitor of the S7 edge. He would also in head-on competition with my little brother, the Mate 9.
