    • Huawei made an iPhone a luxury unibody phone. Are the specs as pretty as the case?

    • 5.2" 1080 x 1920 (~423 ppi) IPS-NEO LCD

    • Huawei Kirin 955 Octa-core CPU (4x 2.5 GHz Cortex-A72 + 4x 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53) and Mali-T880 MP4 GPU

    • Dual 12 MP, f/2.2, 27 mm, Leica optics, dual-LED flash; 8 MP front-facing camera

    • 32 or 64 GB internal storage, expandable via MicroSD (up to 128 GB additional)

    • Rear-case-mounted fingerprint sensor

    • Android 6.0 Marshmallow

    • Huawei beat Apple to the smooth-rear-case-punch, offering a slim phone, without the infamous camera bump.

    • Antenna bands, chamfered edges, brushed aluminum and—Pentalobes? The P9 seems to have taken the iPhone design as law, down to the nasty proprietary five-lobed screws.

    • This marks the first time we've seen such a tiny pentalobe screw outside the Apple ecosystem; we can only hope this is an outlier, not a trend.

    • Seriously, there's no good reason to use pentalobe screws. They are shallow and have round lobes, making them excessively easy to strip. The only reason to use them is to prevent the average user from getting them out.

    Pent-a-lobe screws are fantastic.

    2 screws to get into the device, in my opinion, makes repairs much easier than the typical android way of using glue and glass.

    also, the fact that they are a 5 lobe screw means they have more points of contact, and less chance of rounding. If you find yourself rounding pent-a-lobe screws, you’re doing it wrong.

    • Following our iPhone design hunch, we break out the iSclack, just in case there's a sneaky fingerprint sensor cable trap.

    • Turns out Huawei fixed that too! A long accordion-like cable allows the rear case to be almost entirely separated from the rest of the phone, making disconnection easy.

    • A little heat and some prying earns us a somewhat familiar-looking fingerprint sensor.

    • Brackets and screws start flying as we dig right in, disconnecting the battery for starters.

    • First to fall: the 8 MP, ƒ/2.4, selfie cam, its connector secured by some simple tape.

    • The front-facing camera is cute (and packs a pixel-dense punch), but we're really after its big brother(s).

    • We're slightly bummed we didn't get to test out the fancy software features that compliment this hardware. The Perfect Selfie will have to wait.

    • The fancy dual-rear-facing camera is on a single ribbon cable, making it easy to pluck free.

    • This (purportedly impressive) dual camera unit is made up of two image sensors: An ordinary 12 MP RGB sensor, and a 12 MP monochrome sensor.

    • The additional monochrome sensor aims to add depth and contrast to color photos (while functioning as a nice black-and-white camera, too).

    • The dual-camera assembly is noticeably shorter than the bump-inducing iPhone 6s camera, but not by much.

    • Who left their gum in here? Peeling up the motherboard reveals more thermal paste in a phone than we've seen in awhile.

    • Here are the front-side chips:

    • Huawei is making it rain modular parts!

    • Despite rumors of a headphone jack free iPhone, the P9 features a standard 3.5 mm audio jack, compatible with your existing headphones.

    • It's also an independent, modular component that comes right out without desoldering!

    • The USB-C daughterboard also comes free with minimal hangers-on.

    • USB ports classically suffer a lot of wear—we plug our phones in at least once a day—so it's good to see a separate and easy to replace USB-C port.

    Where are the accelerometer and gyroscope?

    • The itty bitty spring-contact-connected earpiece speaker pops right out of the display assembly.

    • Spring contacts are always a nice find, they make disassembly nearly foolproof.

    • The loudspeaker (complete with foam plug) takes a little encouragement from a plastic opening tool, but is shortly freed as well.

    • That bit of foam may be a method of ingress proofing for the speaker, keeping dust and pointy objects at bay. But it looks a bit like an afterthought, if you ask us.

    • Pulling at some familiar black tabs we are elated to find adhesive pull tabs under the P9's battery.

    • We can't praise these tabs enough. They are an easy-to-use and inexpensive way to secure the battery in a reversible manner.

    • And a good thing, too—with those two orange interconnect cables under the battery, prying through thick adhesive easily could have been dangerous for Mr. P9's health.

    • Huawei lists a couple specs for their battery: A "rated capacity" of 11.08 Wh and a "typical capacity" a bit higher at 11.46 Wh.

    • That puts the P9 battery ahead of the iPhone 6s Plus's 10.45 Wh and just under the Samsung Galaxy S7's 11.55 Wh battery.

    • Huawei P9 repairability score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair):

    • Modular components with spring contacts, thoughtful cabling, and minimal adhesive all make repair cheaper and easier.

    • The battery is straightforward to access. Removing it requires knowledge of the adhesive removal technique, but is not difficult.

    • The display assembly is a fused unit, and replacement requires near complete disassembly of the phone.

    • The P9 inexplicably uses Pentalobe security screws on the exterior, requiring a specialty screwdriver to open the phone.

Huawei is showing to be highly advanced in phone design, this teardown proves it - they are by far ahead of Chinese competition and it's design simplicity compared to the S7 is impressive.

Question though - where are the antenna's? they are not showing in this teardown as far as I could find?

Ferdi - crwdns2934203:0crwdne2934203:0

huawei always claims itself as an innovator,while acts as a copycat to use its advantage of advertisements and local public opinion over's not a good's just a theif who always copy others' designs of conceptual products.

David Grey -

Let me get this straight, who did Huawei copy from? It introduced dual-lense camera with a black-&-white one for better texture, and then Apple introduced its own dual-lense solution months later. Who is the copycat here? I use Apple products and love them. But false accusations just sound sour and mean...

Thank you very much for the guide !

eliiilevi - crwdns2934203:0crwdne2934203:0

disagree with this result, from this tears down this is a really good phone and easy repair. how you got your conclusion of huawei is a copycat? this is a really bias. even the american government want to found hawei is a copycat, but so many years past , what they got?

yi collin - crwdns2934203:0crwdne2934203:0

I suppose the government wants to show Huawei is a copycat because it's from chinses ? But I agree with the result somehow. Huawei introduced dual-lense camera earlier than Apple, but the texture of P9 doesn't prove itself. I think it just cooperate with Leica on some scenarios and get an attestation on the device only.

Storm - good teardownning

Vielleicht hat ja jemand das Phänomen beim P9 ebenfalls feststellen können. In meinem Fall ist es ein Kundengerät, bei dem nach einem Displaytausch die Sprachverständigung bei Telefonaten nur schlecht möglich ist. Der Gesprächspartner kann meinen Kunden kaum verstehen. Die Sprachaufzeichnung funktioniert hingegen wunderbar. Das Huawei kann sich auch einwandfrei mit dem Mobilfunknetz des Kunden verbinden.

Ich habe vorsorglich die Öffnungen des Gerätes gereinigt von aussen und innen(Platine und Display waren demontiert).

Was könnte ich noch tun? Den roten Gummistopfen am USB-C-Board will ich nicht entfernen, da dieser ja das Eindringen von Feuchtigkeit verhindern soll. Oder hat schon mal jemand bei schlechter Verständigung diesen Stopfen entfernt bzw. mit einer Nadel vorsichtig ein Loch

dort hinein gemacht, um eine Verbesserung herbeizuführen? Das USB-C-Board wurde beim Displaytausch erneuert, weil sich bei der

Demontage der Coax-Anschluss am USB-C-Board gelöst hat(kalte Lötstelle). Das Coax-Kabel ist neu.
