P10 has a flagship chipset, flagship camera, flagship display and flagship build so it is a flagship device.
ren122, 17 Mar 2017man looking at leaks of the s8 I think its uglier than the lgg6. Exactly!
I already think the G6 is better looking than the S8.
The S8 has those ugly sensors on the front panel, which make it look HORRIBLE.
Also, the back panel looks awful, especially with that fingerprint scanner.

No reason to buy it, to be honest. Ugly design and an outdated processor for over $650? Nope.

You compared it with 617, not its sibling.
So, time and space are physics and technology is based on physics.
You omitted the time and space and I have nothing to say, as my logic is based on real life which is based on time and space.

It is t... moreThe term has the history in Britain. When Royal navy ships passes vessels and near countries, they send out the fully loaded ship with few navy in it to handle warfare.
Center of the steam ship had a flag of GB. Since then others could distinguish following ships as GB empire naval troops. It was the sign of power, not the fashion.
A wreckage boat neither was and not will be flagship. If your power is too limited, you must leave the sea for bigger. This is the motto of "Flagship".
So, maybe you never met MWC. If you were there, there were 20 not well-known brands with phone which were loaded by MTK X20, X25 - SD 615, 617 - MT6750.
We must count them as Flagship?
If you live in books, you can count them as Flagship, but real life is differ from playing with words.
Shaun Moroz, 12 Mar 2017That is a sleek design? That's an UGLY design.Look at LG G5 and then decide what shall actually be considered as ugly.
SaRPeR, 12 Mar 2017It is also a flagship. Calling Huawei P10 a mid ranger is like calling Galaxy S7 a mid ranger.P10: high cpu + mid gpu + mid screen = mid range
P10+: high cpu + mid gpu + high screen = high end
P10 series is the border of high end and mid range

The P10 has a high-end cpu with mid-range gpu and mid-range screen thus it was demoted from high-end to UPPER mid range.. Here try this, if I put SD835 into a 3310 maintaining everything else (monochrome 7 line lcd, 400mah battery) it will have a blazing fast performance but would you call it high end???
A high end phone must have all if not most of the features on the bleeding edge of technology - in today's case:
cpu: a73, a72, kryo, mongooose
gpu: adreno 530, mali t880-mp12
screen resolution: 4k, QHD
screen technology: SAMOLED, IPS with polariser
ram: 4gb, 6gb
battery: min 3300mah
camera: 41MP, 23MP, 16MP, 12MP(if the pixels are huge)
skimp too many of these and you will loose the high end status.. simple as that

It is the highest spec produced by the company no matter it is mid or high end.. That is why Apple's flagship is always a mid class phone..
If my company produces phones and the best phones i could produce is a SD430 phone than that will be my company's FLAGSHIP

If QHD counted as Flagship(which represents to be high end) in the same SoC, then FHD is One step upper, not lower.
GPU in FHD can render more frames per second than in QHD.
CPU uses less power to handle tasks in a smaller with fewer pixel to feed.
Battery will meet less heat as SoC is most of the time cool, even in 3D games.
Compare to FHD:
QHD is better for bigger screen.
QHD is better for VR.
QHD is better for higher quality video playback in order to zoom in to see further details in specific videos.
Being FHD is not the sign of superiority or inferiority.
Apple phones are recently in 5.5" and FHD. Why they call them Flagship? Why they never called iPhone 6, 6 and 7 a mid ranger?
They even called iPhone 5s as flagship, Premium and High end when its display was 326ppi(640X1136). At the same time there were more than 20 FHD phones available in market. and One QHD from vivo. One of the biggest which was Lumia 1520 had the density of 367ppi(1080X1920).
From performance view, SoC has a big part to distinguish a Low end, Mid range and High end. Qualcomm made it somehow clear with naming.
Snapdragon 4XX is Low end,
Snapdragon 6XX is Mid range,
Snapdragon 8XX is High end.
Nokia 6 with SD430 is a mid range?
If so, performance of Huawei P10 is on par with Nokia 6?
The gap is next to infinite.
The only reason here in this party is that, you invited little prince of already dethroned king, next to not royal root officials in the Middle class hall.
Nokia will definitely regain kingdom by its first True Flagship which in its time must be Top Performer(SD835), Top Quality Build(Tough and Lightweight Alloy) and Top Camera(Innovative and Feature).
OffeiCollinsXcelly, 12 Mar 2017then what about the P10 plus???Both the P10 and the P10 Plus are flagship phones. The P10 Plus just has QHD Display as advantage over the P10. You can't consider the P10 a mid-ranger just because it has a 1080p display instead of a QHD of the Plus model. Otherwise they both share the same specs. And no, don't say P10 Plus has a brighter aperture (1.8 f vs 2.2 f) because that is just a gimmick.
