A bit of disappointment to see that SOC's performance numbers.
Firstly, I thought number of transistors count in Kirin 970 could help to come near to Apple's A10/A11, but actually i m wrong. Apple will sit indisputable with their current chip even if they dont update them for next 2 to 3 years.. (dot)
Disappointing battery life regardless of the huge battery... and all those fake battery saving features didnÂ’t help either... SHAME
Please anyone cam tell me about it's dual sim capabilities because company said it's support dual 4g connection simultaneously
Im getting mate 10, and those negative comments are not going to stop me.

The problem in the video is more to do with more rom optimization to be done on the Mate 10. Apps don't close down in other Huawei or Honor phones. Its a new Kirin 970 chipset and new Android Oreo and so bit more to do in optimizing.

No reload unless phone is out of ram? If you could compare with other androids is it any different? Have you been using OP/phones running Oxygen os?
I wonder how ios manages to be so good with so little ram/free ram. Like my current test object (iphone 7 plus) with all my apps opened I almost never see a reload and even if it happens its smooth as butter. I am currently stuck on ip7+ just because i sold op5 because i wanted to switch to lg v30 but i never expected v30 h930 nowhere to be found 2 months after it was announced so I took chance on ip7+ considering its price at the moment (sold op5 and bought new ip7+ with 80eur extra). iOS has evolved a lot and there many great things about it although overall i prefer android more, but then again only few android phones carry similar premium feel combined with good optimization and great camera..my last phones in no particular order s6, edge 7+, mi5, op3t, op5, ip+7..i must say that OP seems to be the best optimized android phone, but OP does not have its own identity..

Ram management seems awful on mate 10 (see comparison with note 8 which has lagwiz and even with it it still owns mate 10). Reloads on every single app..
Egash Josh, 28 Oct 2017Poor battery really???? Do you even understand what you are talking about?? 87hr rating is a p... more87hr Endurance Rating is excellent already for a smartphone, but the reason why he said that maybe because it have larger battery than its competitors, and yet the Endurance Rating is almost the same as some of its competitors with smaller batteries. If u look at the MATE 9 and MATE 9 PRO, both are having 4000mAh, same goes to the MATE 10 series. From that, I didn't see any improvements with battery life, even with a much efficient chipset. But, I wouldn't think that way, I think that the KIRIN 970 is still much more efficient than KIRIN 960. I told my father to take note of the battery for a test on his HUAWEI P10 PLUS a few months back. 7am to 9pm, 23% left, moderate usage. That can give u around a day like what I said. If that is the case, then the KIRIN 970 would have a better battery life in my assumption, since it have a newer manufacturer process, which is much more efficient that its predecessor. He should not only look at this, he should look at day to day usage in his own experience too
Masterman, 29 Oct 2017Wow that is some garbage sunlight contrast ratio numbers for Mate 10...... huge ass downgrade ... moreYeah i just saw that. It means its gonna be really bad in direct sunlight. I Wonder hiw other lcd screens with such score fare in real life
Wow that is some garbage sunlight contrast ratio numbers for Mate 10...... huge ass downgrade from Mate 9. Kindna hard to justify switching from Mate 9 to Mate 10. Mate 10 Pro would have looked a lot more attractive if not for no headphone jack....
JohnyBoy2017, 29 Oct 2017Very nice overview maan. 16:9, no on screen buttons, fully usable 5,9Â” screen. Never had a hu... moreThank you. I forgot to say complete 5.9" without the invasive nav bar. Anyway, it has all welcome improvements for a top level in 2017 (Camera, Bezel-less, size reduction) without removing 3.5mm jack, 16:9 format, battery life, easy-accesible fingerprint reader. In my opinion it is the greatest surprise of 2017, I was confident that LG V30 or Pixel 2 XL would be a great substitution for my s7 edge byt after its prices and reviews...
I have used EMUI with nougat in a P9 and P10, and probably it is not a rocket like pixel or OP, but it is at the same level than Galaxy's Grace UX. It is very similar to MIUI with its apps for controlling app access, notifications, in background execution, etc.
The only near bezel less phone with 16:9 screen. And no wasting screen space with curved edges.

Pure W sensor results are great, but not enough for this colorful age. Again, would do better if they used r+g+b 3 sensors with same resolution, for that kind of processing. Not that its bad, its just not the best.

Never had a huawei, but i am thinking of switching from iphone 7 plus (previous phones in no particular order op3t, op5, edge7+,mi5). How is huawei/emui in terms of ram management, scrolling smoothness and overall performance?
S8+ does not have a bigger screen. Its just longer and usable area considering the on screen buttons is smaller. 18:9,5 aspect ratio with on screen buttons vs 16:9 with possibility to remove on screen buttons is actually no competition and only because of this i am leaning towards switching from iphone 7 plus, because i need that screen estate and with mate you actually do get an upgrade in screen size. With them 18:9/18:9.5 phones advertised screen sizes (6-6,2Â”) is just a gimmick and basically a cheat towards dumbass consumers who dont understand the aspect ratios, side bezels, on screen buttons, cropped/zoomed in videos to fit in and all other shit that is important to evaluate screen size and its actual usability.
