I am using both mate 9 and mate 10 and I have to say...
Mate 9 is superior.
In my opinion.
Mate 10 is great, but is still missing something.
With P11 you can beat Samsung, just improve this:
- add auto HDR option, some photos from mate10 have blown highlights compared to pixel2,
- temper sharpening - in Mate 10 its a bit too much,
- improve video stabilisation
- add real optical zoom e.g. with third lens as some rumors say
- P10 didnt have a barometer, now it has also Samsung's A serie, I hope P11 will get it.
- if some overheating problems are true, please fix them.
- I would welcome some hub with lan connector support. As an EHS person I would occasionally use it not only in desktop mode.
Your design is already great, for me much better than fragile curved screens.
Why is anybody upgrading his phone? Many people just because of camera. Samsung doesnt intent to put dual lens camera in a compact device in 2018. Its almost impossible to find a compact device with best camera up to date. Pixel 2 has a great camera, but bigger bezels that nexus4 5years ago and they ask for a premium price.
If above mentioned issues are fixed, P11 will be a huge success.

i am shocked on how much diff even using same cpu(kirin 960 vs 970). i think npu combination really make things totally diff.
I have been using this phone for 1 week ... In my opinion, this phone works well and great.. the battery life is superb and can last for around 6 hours.. i have no regret for buying this phone :)

And make your phone lag) And I believe thats the reason why Chinese version has 2GB more RAM than International version.

Samsung is fooling us by making a very bright screens so pictures will come clean and beautiful but the truth is when you put it on a pc that's the only time you will realize that the picture isn't perfect as it was on your phone.
To those Mate 10 owners who plays games, do you use the default FHD resolution or the QHD? Any noticeable difference when playing at the higher resolution?
Sdk, 05 Dec 2017What about camera quality in daylight and in evening. Also video quality. You have not said a ... moreAll my previous phones was flagship phones from LG mostly but also Samsung my wife still have S7Edge and by far I found the 7Edge camera the best in almost every aspect to all previous phones... Optimus , G3 ,G4 ,V10 , S7edge , S8 (had one for nearly a month didn't like the format) now S8 and S7 I cant see much of a difference they both perform almost the same I have to say EXCELLENT and this camera on M10 is up to pair with both however If you want to play with PRO settings and go manual then M10 outperforms both of Samsung's in my opinion. The Mate 10 camera AI is really good and in most cases I found myself trying to make better picture with PRO settings while in fact the AI made excellent job .. night shots slightly less however there the PRO settings are coming handy . Everyday fast SNAP ..PERFECT! Front camera is never Im really looking at form time to time for a selfie shot or group and it does it well but I was never impressed by any front camera. It is safe to say the camera is on top of the game . I paid my unit around 630USD
Nicl, 07 Dec 2017I has read some articles regarding heat issue about this phone, please do research before you ... moreHeat issue I guess it was pointed out on the benchmark testing, in real life usage you won't notice any issue regarding heating! I can assure you on that. There is a big difference in benchmark testing and real life usage
I has read some articles regarding heat issue about this phone, please do research before you buy. Good Luck.
I think that "Resolution: 1440 x 2560 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~499 ppi density)" is not correct.
Must be: 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio (402 ppi density)

is the ALP-AL00 mate 10 version china which has 6gb/128gb can use network in other country?, or it has a problem?, tnx
