    There are more than a few happy Huawei Mate 9 owners that frequent our Smart Phones forum. However it seems that not everyone is happy with Huawei and it possibly fudging some of the Mate 9 and Pro 10 hardware specifications as reported by Reuters.

    The company's mobile chief Richard Yu said on April 20 that Huawei used a mix of less efficient eMMC flash memory cards and high-performance Universal Flash Storage (UFS) cards in its latest P10 phone "due to severe shortage in the supply chain." That triggered more consumer ire online, with some users accusing Huawei of selling substandard products for the same price. Huawei reinstated the description late on Thursday, and told Reuters it had temporarily removed the description "to avoid confusion" while it checked to confirm that all Mate 9 phones support UFS 2.1 flash.
