With the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 out of the picture, a few great alternatives have popped up since then, and one of the best options available if you are looking for a large display smartphone is the Huawei Mate 9. Huawei’s latest flagship features the same solid all metal construction that we’ve come to expect from the series, features a Leica-powered dual-camera setup that impresses, and comes with a battery that is made to last. If a large screen smartphone is what you are after, the Huawei Mate 9 is the one to consider.
An extra layer of protection to keep your new smartphone safe from accidental bumps and drops is never a bad idea. Which is why, we’ve rounded up some of the best protective cases and covers that are currently available for the Huawei Mate 9!
The Ringke Fusion is a clear case that features and polycarbonate body and a TPU bumper that allows you to show of the look and design of the phone.
