But the Honor 10 is also a little more expensive than the previous phone, and also looks like last year’s model enough to make a reasonable question, is it worth staying on the old model?
You will have to wait for the full review of Honor 10 to clarify all the points for sure, but below you will find a complete comparison of Honor 10 and Honor 9 so that you can determine the difference for yourself.
HONOR 10 VS HONOR 9: DESIGN
Light may get lost in the glass of the back panel Honor 10.
Honor 10 and Honor 9 have similar designs, at least on the back and sides, with both smartphones having a metal frame and glass back panels. This is not simple, ordinary glass, it is laminated in search of a particularly attractive effect, and in the case of Honor 10, the color of the phone can vary depending on the angle of view.
Take a look at the front panel and you will see that the devices are very different, since Honor 10 got a cutout at the top of the screen, while Honor 9 offers a standard display rectangle.
Both smartphones have a deep bottom panel in which there is a fingerprint scanner, but on Honor 10 it is under glass, so the front panel of the phone is completely smooth, while Honor 9 has a trim and a pronounced scanner button. In addition, the Honor 9 frame is larger than on the Honor 10.
Rear panels Honor 10 and Honor 9 look similar.
In terms of size and weight, the Honor 10 measures 149.6 x 71.2 x 7.7 mm and weighs 153 grams, and the Honor 9 measures 147.3 x 70.9 x 7.5 mm and weighs 155 grams, so Honor 9 slightly smaller and slightly heavier, but overall they are about the same.
It is also worth noting that they are one smartphone does not offer full protection against water. Thus, the main difference is the cutout on the screen. or its absence in the case of Honor 9.
HONOR 10 VS HONOR 9: DISPLAY
The Honor 10 has a narrow cut-out screen.
The Honor 10 smartphone has a 5.84-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, which returns us a density of 432 pixels per inch with an aspect ratio of 19: 9.
At the same time, Honor 9 relies on a 5.15-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a density of 428 pixels per inch and a 16: 9 ratio.
In this case, the Honor 10 screen is slightly larger and the resolution is slightly higher, but with approximately the same pixel density, so the sharpness of the image will not differ from one to another, but we will inform you about the results of the Honor 10 image rating in addition, after a full review of the phone.
The bezel of the Honor 9 is slightly larger.
Aspect ratio, this is where there is a significant difference, since Honor 10 uses an elongated (high) screen, like most of the latest flagships. Since it has a notch and reduced bezels, it also has a better display-to-body ratio compared to Honor 9, although if you don’t like the notch at the top of the screen, you can hide it by turning on the corresponding setting that hides the notch with two black panels on both sides.
HONOR 10 VS HONOR 9: PERFORMANCE AND OS
Honor 10 and Honor 9 come in models of 4 and 6 GB of RAM, while we talk about RAM, so they are similar here, but Honor 9 uses the older Kyrin 960 chipset with an 8-core processor, but Honor 10 relies on the latest Kyrin 970.
Thus, the Honor 10 promises better performance under pressure. In fact, it uses the chipset that you will find in the flagship Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro, while the Honor 9 chipset you will find in the Huawei P10.
However, in the tests, the Honor 9 was only slightly inferior to many of the flagships of 2017, including the Samsung Galaxy S8, so you should not lack in performance.
Honor 10 promises better performance, but similar software.
As for the operating system, you get Android 7 Nougat out of the box with Honor 9, but now you can upgrade your smartphone to Android 8 Oreo, while Honor 10 runs on Oreo from day one. This gives the Honor 10 an advantage, because, despite similar software, the new phone is likely to receive updates longer.
Of course, both phones have an overlay, in particular, EMUI 8.0 in the case of Honor 9 and EMUI 8.1 on Honor 10. They are similar and will be familiar if you used one of the latest Honor or Huawei smartphones, but it is worth noting that they differ from the usual Android
