Huawei P9 Plus design and build quality
The Huawei P9 Plus has a metal  unibody body design reminiscent of the Huawei P8 and Nexus 6P. The P8 stood out among its Chinese rivals for bringing a previously unseen level of design quality, excluding perhaps the E4. The P9 Plus, along with the standard P9, confirms that Huawei has perfected the premium finishing touches.
The P9 has more rounded corners than its predecessor, improving the grip. It is 0.7-mm thinner than the S7 Edge, but this thinness, coupled with a 5.5-inch display does not make it particularly comfortable to hold.

On the front are two stereo speakers, the front-facing camera and motion sensor. Again we find the edge set with 2.5D glass, like on the Huawei Mate S. However, although Huawei made this comparison in its presentation, the effect is more discreet and in the end results in a less impressive finish.
The largest design change in this generation is found on the back of the device. Here we find a similar setup to the Nexus 6P, with a dual camera, dual LED flash and autofocus laser.  On the rear also we find the fingerprint scanner and Huawei logo.

As for the physical keys, on the right side of the frame there’s the volume rocker followed by the power button, with a texture that makes it easily identifiable to the touch. On the left side, there’s the SIM and microSD slot, which can hold either two nanoSIMs or one nanoSIM and a microSD card. And on
