Design & Display

We begin with the design. I will say the design of the Huawei Maimang 9 5G is not by any means special, we have continuously seen this particular blue print overtime in Nigeria.

There is nothing unusual, just some few tweaks here and there. You get to feel the presence of a 3D curved back, an 8.9mm thick body with a 212grams weight. The placements didn’t move an inch from what you will expect.

Final Thoughts

The Huawei Maimang 9 5G is another 5G phone to consider with the move away from the top tier level to a mid-range if not cheap depending on how you see it.

The features here are by no means to the extreme but we got what we want. The main priority was of course 5G, the other features follow through.

The Huawei Maimang 9 5G is no doubt a good option to checkout in Nigeria, if you must buy one, keep it in mind that you are not going to have all of Google 😉
