7.4The Vivo V9 is a great all-around package which will appeal many. It packs in the right balance of performance, battery life, power and of course, adds a pretty awesome camera making it much better offering in comparison to the OnePlus 3T in some areas such as raw power and a rear camera. However, Huawei Honor 8 is an excellent choice in terms of dual camera setup over V9, but not so much in the selfie department.
