The P10's dialer shares a common interface with the contacts app. There are no groundbreaking features here, and nothing missing.
The dual-SIM settings menu lets you rename cards, disable them from software and select which one does calls or data by default. The interface leads us to believe that while 4G may be limited to just one card, both get 3G connectivity in addition to 2G, which the specs don't indicate.
The interface is not ideal in that dual SIM settings is in one menu, while the mobile networks are in a different one, and you may need to do a little back-and-forth to set things up precisely to your liking - say limit the primary card to 3G. 'Primary' as in the default card that gets 4G connectivity - you choose that in dual SIM settings. Then in the mobile networks section you get to pick the preferred network type, but only for this primary card - the other one makes do with the rest of the available radios.
Knowing the excellent loudspeaker loudness, we got from the Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro, we expected the same with the P10. And loudness we got, but from a single speaker placed at the bottom of the P10. While the Mate 9 and P9 Plus had stereo speakers, the P10 only has a mono speaker. The P10 Plus will most probably bring the stereo back, but we are still disappointed it isn't available on the P10.
Anyway, the P10 posted very good numbers in all three of our tests, securing a Very Good mark. It sounded clear and distortion free even at maximum volume.

Huawei has bundled the P10 with its Health app, which tracks steps and calculates calories burnt, but can also supposedly count the number of floors you've climbed.
You also have a ton of basic tools preloaded, including a proper file manager, calendar app, notes, weather, compass, sound recorder, and flashlight.
