User opinions and reviews

  • Ann Leong

Bought a made in China phone instead of made in Korea or UK (I have one made in UK); don't have any technical or battery problem so far (I had the phone since late Dec 2018)

  • Topset

Buying an A9 is a big regret, i've given up on it now, after 6 months of problems, even the camera is poor!

  • Topset

Any other phone is better than A9 a big disappointment!
