Mhd, 13 Aug 2017I had a fingerprint lag before the update, but now it's working smoothlyAny focus issues? Camera is unusable after update on my unit. Should have bought Samsung or iPhone for the money I was spending. Phone is now bottom tier.
I read some other opinions here and found myself alike many others - I went from Samsung Galaxy S6 edge to Huawei P10 Plus (6GB RAM, 128GB memory VKY-L29 version) just for the sake of change. Have had Samsungs for long time and thought, Ill try something else (wife has Xperias, so Im pretty familiar with those).
First thing I noticed is that the screen isnt as good (IPS vs S6's AMOLED), but that didnt bother me. Also at first I kind of missed wireless charging, but not anymore.
- The battery is much better
- This is the first phone, that can really compete with Samsung's camera (IMHO)
- I really like the speed of fingerprint sensor - its almost instantaneous, several times faster than S6.
- Knuckle screen capture is an amazing function!
- The Dual-SIM system is great, having a call on one sim, puts the 2nd sim on hold and redirects any call that comes to 2nd sim, on first sim.
- Wifi-4G switch is really smooth with no cap in connection.
- And I like the VoLTE funciton, altho its not very common yet (I only have 1 other contact, who uses VoLTE, but I call him pretty often :D
But in general - I regret on going from Samsung to Huawei. There are several drawbacks:
- No personal notification tones for contacts
- Several apps dont work correctly (for example, with specific app use, one widget of another app always dissapeares from home screen)
- Ringtone is sometimes crazy loud and sometimes super quiet - never in between and it doesnt matter, how I set it from phone
- Battery lasts long, but acts strange sometimes - some mornings when I take it from overnight charging, it shows 99% right away, other times it takes 10-15min intensive usage (SO time) to go anywhere lower from 100%
- Doesnt matter if from the app or security settings, some apps just dont show anything on lock-screen.
- Some notifications dont come through, for example a game notifies when daily quest is available, but doesnt notify, when someone challenges you. The same game runs well when only my character is on screen, but gets serious lag when 2nd player is shown on the screen (both things worked well on other phones).
- There is no way of turning off built-in app, that counts your steps - only way is to uninstall it.
- MirrorShare has serious lagg. I mean, when I share my phone screen on my Philips TV, it never runs smoothly for 30 seconds in a row. If fortunate, then I get a few frames of delay and distortion, but usually video freezes for couple of seconds, then either jumps on the right frame, or starts all distorted to run faster until it reaches the right point. Audio, at the same time, runs smoothly.
If I can live with all the other drawbacks, the MirrorShare lag is the most annoying one - does anyone have any experience with it and maybe even a solution or fix?
As a conclusion, my personal opinion - I dont suggest Huawei P10 Plus...

Anybody suffering through camera focus/blur issues and fingerprint lag after optimization update? (B150). Billed as a phone optimization and camera improvement (Moving Picture Feature Addition to Camera App). Phone less than a month old. Tried factory reset as suggested by Huawei customer service but I was told the Moving Picture feature/App could not be removed.

Camera wise p10 and plus are almost identical unless you pixel peek in night shot. Day to day performance is fluid and smooth. but mali G71 GPU is not that powerful. I noticed frame drops when playing mobile legends and sometimes lag and stutter. Battery life is above average and okay for me. ohh and no heat issue though.
and dont expect to get monthly security patch in time, mine still stuck at June security patch. huawei is slow to roll out updates and patches.
If I were you, I would wait for mate 10 with HiSilicon kirn 970 10nm. note 8 is coming out as well. not a good time to buy a new phone. you would be stuck with yesteryear 16nm not so energy efficient CPU and GPU

Would you recommend P10 plus or not? Otherwise I'm thinking Mate 9. Sick of Samsung [they're not bad, I just want a change]
Its very obvious that you don"t know about cameras. Huawei P10 Plus is one of the best all rounder in the market this time. Read at DxOMark forum and reviews... they are the most trusted entity you can rely on. This link can help you wake up... https://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Huawei-P10-mobile-review-Top-performer
Naftali, 07 Aug 2017Unfortunately, all Sony models camera are much inferior than all HTCs or HUAWEIs or SAMs. Jus... moreYes, HTC and SAMSUNG is better than Sony for the camera. But, HUAWEI is not. I tried out using my dad's smartphone which is HUAWEI P10 PLUS, and I have something to say about it: it does much worse than my XPERIA XZ. Dual cameras? Heck yeah. But, the ISO level is crazy af. Even in daylight shots, it crank up the ISO to a high level and suddenly jumps down if moved. I try out taking a selfie of myself under the light and yet it crank up the ISO higher than my mum's GALAXY S6 and my XPERIA XZ. In low-light shots? The worse thing I ever seen for a smartphone with dual camera setup. It cranked up the ISO to the max for no reason and the noise levels are really just unbearable. I wonder how they control their camera setup because the sensitivity level is too high, and somehow the focus speed is slower than GALAXY S6 and XPERIA XZ. What's more weird is they disabled the zoom functionality for 20MP and enabled it for 12MP and below, when other smartphone manufacturers don't do that. They really need to improve their dual camera setup to be on par with HTC, SAMSUNG, Sony etc ESPECIALLY their ISO sensitivity

Google pixel proves it wrong!. I mean wrong. I have p10 plus f1.8. it doesnt do any good compared to my old samsung note 4.
D E, 05 Aug 2017buy an xz premiumUnfortunately, all Sony models camera are much inferior than all HTCs or HUAWEIs or SAMs. Just look for the F# that is 2.0 for Sony Vs 1.8 or smaller than the others.
zain, 04 Aug 2017Plz suggest me .which cell i bought p10 plus vs htc u11 .whos the best..and why..?of course P10+
zain, 04 Aug 2017Plz suggest me .which cell i bought p10 plus vs htc u11 .whos the best..and why..?I just observed that the HTC does not have a 3.5mm jack which is a dealbreaker for me. Otherwise it would be pretty good option.
thato, 03 Aug 2017which is better P10+ or Samsung 8+ ?P10+
1.Processing - S8 slightly better in heavy games and benchmarks, P10 much better in all other works.
2.Design and build-design Your preference, s8 more prone to damages but S8 is waterproof.
3.Display- resolution same, s8 better because amoled,
4.Software- both are latest and will guaranteedly get software update. p10+ is better because it is much more customised, it also has app drawer if you don't like default, no bloatware, fantastic software optimisation, S8 lot of bloatware.
5.Camera- S8 is slightly ahead in very low light conditions, but P10+ is also fantabulous, it has FAR better bokeh effect due to dual, colour production is best, it's pure photography camera for professional experts. S8 has more stable 4k recording due to OIS(p10+ has EIS, enough but OIS is more stable).
6. Battery- s8 has bigger battery, P10+ has faster charging
7.Fingerprint- p10+ is much faster in p10+, but s8 also has additional iris scanner.
8.pricing- p10+ is much much cheaper. And Huawei is 3rd largest in the world. So enormous brand value.

Hi all, what I can say abou tthe phone after the first 12 hours of use:
the battery was 30% out of the box. I connected the (beefy) charger and after about 40 minutes it was already on 90%! Then I started to restore my backup, including some 60 apps (24gb), the charging got stuk at 94% for the duration of the restore (about 30 minutes) and got very hot. After about 6 hours of heavy use, the battery got down at 30% again, but for me that is a good time.
The phone is a fingerprint magnet and it scratches very easily. I got my first scratches on the back after just one hour. You get a back case with it, so you really need it. But I find it irritating on my ear when calling. So it must go. Also the front protective layer scratches easily.
The UI is very clean and almost no bloatware, some apps I don't want could be uninstalled anyway, so that's nice. There is only one app (so far I know) you cannot uninstall and that's trip advisor. why? lol.
I feel no need to install a launcher, although I'm a fan of horizontal scrolling instead of vertical.
The 128gb of memory is massive! After restoring the backup (the samsung with 32gb memory was full with 24gb) I still have 100gb free.
The screen is bright, but not as good as an amoled from samsung. I can live with that. At low brightnes the colours look washed out.
Overall very happy so far!
i have just brought this phone it is amazing no heating battery life very good it is just an excellent phone
I got it! They only had the back/gray version. But I got discount, so can't complain. On the spec page it says: 64 GB, 4 GB RAM (L09) or 128 GB, 6 GB RAM (L29). On the box of my P10+ says model L09, so I expected 64GB/4GB but I got 128GB/6GB anyway! Only thing the L29 version has is dual sim.
