However, the Mate series has carved its own niche among admirers of the metallic body, slim design, and a fast processor. We are bringing some of the unique features of Huawei Mate 9 for you.

One of the variants of Mate 9 i.e. NHA-L29 is a dual sim compatible phone. This feature is useful for you if you use two sim cards. You just need to add Dual card management widget to the home screen for ease of access.
- Show more content on display
With this feature, you can adjust the size of icons and fonts since Huawei Mate 9 doesn’t use the screen to the maximum limit. Hence, it gives you choice that you can shrink apps and fonts to display more content on the home screen.

One issue users face while operating their phablets is that you can’t use it with a single hand due to its dimensions. With One-handed mode from Mate 9, you can easily operate it with one hand.
