Huawei Mate 9 vs Xiaomi Mi 5S: Specs and Features
Huawei Mate 9 and Xiaomi Mi 5S are almost identical when it comes to features and specs however, Mate 9 seems to have a little bit of advantage compared to Mi 5S.

For the internal storage, both Huawei Mate 9 and Xiaomi Mi 5S have the same memory capacity of 4GB to 6GB of RAM as well as the on-board internal storage except from the fact that Mate 9 offers 256GB option for storage. For the camera specs, Xiaomi Mi 5S rear camera sports a 13 megapixels dual lens quite higher than Huawei Mate 9 with 12-megapixels but the latter features an 8 megapixels front camera lens higher than Xiaomi Mi 5S with 4 megapixels.
Huawei Mate 9 is regarded as the next big thing for smartphones and will make everyone forget about the discontinued Samsung Galaxy Note 7 but will make you remember about Apple iPhone 7 Plus footprint.
