Honor 9: Should you import it if you live in the U.S.?

This sub-$ 500 device is worth wielding stateside, as long as you don’t mind making a few compromises.

I’m digging the latest trend of sub-$ 500 smartphones that are worth using. These aren’t just generations-old flagships offered at a discount; they’re marquee devices in their own right.

One particular phone that fits into this category of “worth it for the price” is the Honor 9. It’s the successor to the Honor 8, which saw much fanfare in  [Read More…]
