poor battery performance with a 4000mah. Goes to show that Huawei has a long way to go with their Kirin chipset and UI optimization.
Grizzlyspid86, 28 Oct 2017Emui 8.0 has an option to change your res to 1080p or even 720p. Battery performance will be b... moreI doubt it will significantly affect anything other than gaming as any other regular usage doesn't require much GPU resources anyway.
s4f786, 28 Oct 2017I think they could have done better with the battery life tbh. The s8+ has a smaller battery, ... moreIt has bigger oled screen which is more effecient compared to IPS. Also CPU was made in same manufacturing process (10 NM)so better battery life was kind of expected
Emui 8.0 has an option to change your res to 1080p or even 720p. Battery performance will be better. If I own the phone, I change right away to 1080p, better battery and gaming performance. Use 2k rarely, maybe just to zoom in some pictures to see more details.
WOW, battery is dissapointing. Wasn't 970 supposed to be much more power efficient? Yet battery life is worse than Mate 9 with the power hungry 960.
There really isn't anything that makes me wanting to upgrade from my Mate 9.
The simulated f/16 aperture doesn't look like 27mm f/16 on a full frame camera...
leo R, 28 Oct 2017The new back design is ugly. I like old back more.that's your oppinion, to me its looks okay.
I think they could have done better with the battery life tbh. The s8+ has a smaller battery, has a bigger screen, and the cpu was made on a higher manufacturing process and got 88 hours.
Thanks GSMArena for a nice review. It answered my question regarding portrait mode at 2x zoom, and i guess it will work in low light too(unlike iPhone)? Mate 9 can do the same trick(portrait mode at 2x zoom)?
Camera and gpu upgrade are nice,well screen too but they are not really tempting. And while all glass body look beautiful, i'm not fan of it.
Acceptable battery life, but below expected of a 4000mah battery. This only further solidifies the fact that battery size is not conclusive of battery life. It's amazing then that the note8's 3200mah battery is more efficient than this mate 10's 4000mah. Stay salty, plebs.
