Huawei Mate 9 (US Unlocked)
If the big screen is what you're after with the Note 7, consider the all-new Huawei Mate 9. This phone actually has a massive 5.9-inch HD display, which is slightly bigger than the Galaxy Note 7. The Mate 9 also comes with a giant 4,000 mAh battery to last all day, fast charging technology with USB Type-C and more. It also runs the latest Huawei Kirin 960 processor. Which they claim is the fastest they've built along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Additionally, it already runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
The phone sports dual cameras on the back -- a 12 and 20 megapixel pair of shooters -- along with a beautiful metal design and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The Mate 9 has tons of impressive camera features or tricks, improved software with Android Nougat, and decent speakers. You'll get 64GB of storage and a micro-SD slot. Again, there's no stylus, but this is arguably just as good or better than the Note 7.
Huawei unveiled the unlocked model for the US at CES 2017. It's available starting today, January 5th for only $599. Better and cheaper than the explosive Samsung.
