good flagship mobile for the given price. 30-40% lesser price when compared with same type other brand models with same specification and performance. performance is better than snapdragon 835 processor. i think it's lcd display will get better life when compared with mate 10 pro's oled display, because chance are less for screen burnout/pink line complaints. best display, good camera, speed, battery etc. suggest for all.
black one is very sexy.
no ip-68 certification is a drawback.
I am using this amazing mobile since a couple of weeks. My review is as follows.
1. Superb design with stunning looks. I got the black color and it is very very beautiful one. easy to hold with very good build quality.
2. lesser in size and weight when compared with the previous mate model.
3. clear sharp QHD display. it is possible to change the display resolution from QHD to FHD and HD. we can read under direct sunlight.
3. perfectly balanced stereo speakers with crystal clear sound even at high volumes. We can hear the sound even if we kept it in our trouser pocket/in any noisy environment.
4. battery backup is one of the best I ever experienced. I am getting two plus days battery backup with internet/emails/whatsapp/facebook/calls/texts etc etc. quick battery charging.
5. good performance & speed, can play any high end games with out any lagging.no heating
6. amazing cameras, especially the back one. we can take very good pictures even in darkest places.
7. 3.5mm audio jack supported, IR remote control available.
8. good for music listeners.
9. very easy to use, good software. currently running on oreo. expecting pie update by the middle of february.
10. screen guard and back cover is available in box.
..... and then the negative parts
1. not water proof.
2. not available in some areas, where the other models of huawei/honor mobiles are
I wouldn't recommend for listening to music. The volume is simply too low. Even at maximum volume it is nearly impossible to hear anything if you're in a public place or commuting. I eventually resorted to using volume booster apps, although they fill my phone with unwanted advertising.

Bluetooth can connect but incoming messages in silent and at time call cant be connected

EVIL CRASH BANDICOOT, 07 Jan 2019Open ur hicare app and get the update Not Working !...
I am in KSA with Mate 10, only I got Security patch only & waiting for Pie.
I think it will take ages to get the update for EMUI-9.
I have reported to Huawei, They just ask to keep checking & in Beta no update & Firmware finder not able update at all.
Huawei Tech should give us proper date & update solution.
I hope they reply & solve it ASAP.

All of the annoying bugs are fixed with android P. This phone is best bang for the buck. That too in flagship range.
EVIL CRASH BANDICOOT, 02 Jan 2019Have you test dolphin EMU Its running good now definitely ! they did actually update the driver, never saw that message that says "update your driver" or anything like that since, i get a pretty decent framerate in zelda windwaker (around 25-35 fps) and luigi's mansion is stable 60 fps ! the phone got its full potential thanks to the pie update, not to mention the performance mode.
Just got an update today ( Serbia ) it looks nice.I have noticed some bugs but nothing to be cocermed about.Overall phone works just fine
My favorite smartphone unfortunately with hybrid and Bluetooth 4.2 ,but unfortunately still after 2018 and coming 19 still very pricey !! $300 For those whomever can afford it, it is semi fair THOUGH HUAWEI doesn't coperate in knowledge exchange !!!?Good Hope...Honor 20 view is coming !!! Hopefully affordable economical budget ...Respectively.Thanks gsmArena +all mentioned and mentioned in 2018...Hopefully we see good , better , and best in 2010 as the superiors ++++!
