Should I go with the mate 10 or Samsung s8 plus not the snapdragon CPU.thx
blewd, 30 Oct 2017my 2nd day using huawei mate 10.. outstanding performance!Hoy about tje battery life? Is it better than sony xz1 compact? How much Screen on Time(SoT) did you get?
Almost all advantages that mate 10 has over mate 9 will be destroyed by unescesary high resolution...It means it won't be any faster...Main differences are it's newer, probably will be supported a bit longer, has USB 3.1 spec and has IP rating that doesn't mean anything because companies don't stand by their phones and will cancel your warranty in case of water damage. Been there, done that. Choice is Yours.
Oh, and don't be fooled by audio specifications, anything higher than 44khz 24bit is useless. Only the chip itself can have better audio reproduction, not those high numbers. So audio quality must be verified by people who do proper tests and are competent.
How is the Google play works? Is it slow? Does it draining battery like the pro, what's the update for mate 10 here?
Nicholas, 29 Oct 2017I just bought the Mate 10 and i love it! This is my 3rd Huawei Phone (Mate8 and Mate9). ... moreHello, I am currently using a Mate 8, is it worth upgrading to a Mate 10 or should I settle for a cheaper Mate 9? I do a lot of gaming on my phone, so gpu performance is quite important to me.
I love the design and 4000mAh battery is real nice too!
I just bought the Mate 10 and i love it!
This is my 3rd Huawei Phone (Mate8 and Mate9).
1) Charging is super duper fast and even faster than Mate9.
2) Camera is improved compared Mate 9.
3) The AI with Translator is really superb!
4) The screen is much better compared to IPS LCD Mate 9.
5) Battery is also improved tremendously compared to Mate 9. Used for 1 hours plus On Screen time and i have 87% Battery left.
6) It feels much much smaller (footprint) and easier to hold compared to Mate 9.
The only set back compared to Mate 9 is the position of the fingerprint sensor. Awkward positioning. I love the Mate 10 Pro but i don't think it is worth paying that much for additional AMOLED, IP67 and Fingerprint position at the back
I think Im going to skip the idea of buying a phone now, no phone seems to tick all boxes, LG V30, nice main camera, headphone jack etc, rubbish front camera, and no twin app feature in the OS which means I will need 3rd party app to have 2 whatsapp etc, this should be standard on all dual sim phones, Note 8, the stupidest finger print reader place ever, Huawei mate 10, no water proofing, hmmmmmm, mate 10 pro, no headphone jack, lower resolution, I will wait till Samsung S 9, or hopefully the new HTC to be good
Mate 10 has 7% more screen and 6% more battery than P10 plus but yet Mate 10 has 13% more battery life. So yes Kirin 970 is better than Kirin 960, which should be obvious.

Also because both Kirin 960 and Kirin 970 gets first implemented on the Mate devices, the reviews are performed quite early before Huawei optimizes the battery life with later software updates.
In terms of performance, the Kirin 970 with 12 core GPU is performing as much or better than the Exynos which has a 20 core GPU.

Huawei promised 30% improvement in battery life however since battery life benchmarks are done differently and likely gsmarena tests alone don't cover all aspects.
Kirin 970 improved in efficiency because 10nm and more efficient G72 GPU but also have to take into account GPU now has 4 more core from the Kirin 960 which was Mp8 as well take into account that Mate10 is QHD display. Do we have other IPS QHD display phones to make comparison because phone with Amoled display are not a proper comparison.
8knots, 28 Oct 2017Problem with the 960 comes with the power hungry cortex A73. Now that 970 is still using those... moreGuess you're right. Big let down by Huawei - they promised much better power efficiency, but instead the new Mate performs even worse than the previous. Pass.
