In some countries, the Huawei P- (regular) is the most compact flagship/high end Android phone officially available (since Sony has stopped making their xperia compact series available). I hope that next year, P11 will keep the same dimensions and have IP certification (aside from the usual upgrades like the newest SoC, etc.) Personally, I hope it will still have the 16:9 aspect ratio but with narrower top and bottom bezels but I know this won't happen..
It's a good phone but not without its faults.
Let's start with the device it's self, the phone gets hot When using the the camera for more than 5mins and also using Google maps. Using the device for every other task is a breeze and quick.
The next issue is using Google Chrome, the device does not start the app until at least 3 to 4 seconds when touched. I had to resort to a factory reset to solve the issue. I do clear the history and also tried resetting the app by clearing the catch. I honestly believe it's a software problem.
Next my biggest issue WiFi. I am in the UK and have used many different networks and routers with all the same results, the device struggles to gain faster speed than 30mbps which is a joke considering the LTE speed can reach much higher speeds, it's just the WiFi issue. There are a few videos on the Internet showing this problem. I contacted Huawei who fobbed me off with an excuse that the device will receive a update to the software to resolve the issue, guess what that was three months ago and no update making the technical adviser a lier. I am not impressed at all.
Build and everything else is good. But don't expect real support and answers from Huawei. This is Not a flagship that they like to make out but a higher midrange or a last year flagship standards. The fact that they have released another midrange phone with the exact same hardware and pretty much same camera is evident.
I believe most of the issues I mentioned are software related so hope Huawei sort the issue out for us customers or they will lose out on sales.
I'm not a troll, I do own this device but feel the need to address people looking to purchase this device of the real issues.
I have a question. I have a picture in Gallery. How can I send to a friend as Whatsop?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2017Shame it's no stock android and has no snapdragon chipset otherwise I would have bought it. Man, you have no idea.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2017As posted earlier I contacted Huawei, had to give them the IMEI, build number and the place an... moreI'm having the same issue with broadband speeds. Won't go over 30mbps. I bought another P10 for my wife from the 3 store 2 weeks ago, this P10 has no issues, over 100mbps on a speed test. Going to contact Huawei tomorrow
Shame it's no stock android and has no snapdragon chipset otherwise I would have bought it.
which one is better in terms of overall performance and camera? mate 9 or p10?
Is anyone having issues with Google chrome. Some times after the phone has been sat idle or after using other apps, Google chrome takes a while to respond and does not open straight away. Seems to take 3 to 4 seconds at times.
I'm also getting the 3D mark result as 1511. But I don't feel any lag in the device and I'm not a heavy gamer either. So it doesn't really matter to me.
Brit, 06 Sep 2017I have also saw you making nagative comments about Huawei phones . Your probably make commen... moreNo bro, this is so wrong. Gaming on Huawei phones are not so cool, they usually lag like hell. Low FPS, geez. If you just tried playing graphic intensive games like, Vainglory, MCV, GTA and damn. Low FPS. I tried all the settings I can do. Play with low spec settings on game and still it sucks. Yea the phone is good for media use, camera is cool, but not on gaming man, trust me, if you're a gamer then it will really break your heart, PROMISE.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2017i have all the games on my phone Gaming on P10 sucks, believe me. I had this phone and it does not play games well I usually get low FPS also playing MCV, geez the lag a GODLIKE!. This is just a midrange phone better buying a iPad to play games with. Yea that will be cool
