A Leica in Your Pocket
A few weeks back, I attended the Philippine launch of the Huawei P9 series for ProjectVanity.com. It was a grand event held at the City of Dreams Manila and introduced the latest smartphones from Huawei: Huawei P9, Huawei P9 Plus, and Huawei P9 Lite.
Mark and I were pretty excited for the event because the Huawei P9 is the first smartphone to partner with Leica and to have the Leica quality in your pocket is a definite plus for mobile photography.
Head on over to PV to read #Flatlay 101: How to Take Great Pics with Your Phone Camera where I share tips and tricks on how to capture a good flatlay photo using a Huawei P9 (or any smartphone).
At the end of the night, Huawei raffled off a couple of P9 Lites and P9s and I won a Huawei P9 Lite! I finally got the unit yesterday and Mark did a quick unboxing video for LXL’s Tech Thursday/Tech Tuesday/Tech category. I would have done it except that my unboxing videos take a longer time to do. Case in point, the Huawei P9 Plus unboxing which is coming up I promise!

Let me know if you have questions on the Huawei P9 Lite! We’ll be posting the review soon.. We’re still debating whether Mark will use it or I will because I’m still roadtesting the Huawei P9 Plus which has the Leica co-engineered dual lens technology. It might be hard for me to review both at the same time. Plus I have a lot of lipsticks in line for the #LXLlipstickguide so stay tuned for that also. Till next post!
