My point of view of this : It's a great phone with keeping some worth-it features like "dedicated" 3.5 mm headphone jack , SD card and upgrading some feature like 1440p / QHD , etc. . It's lacks of some feature like waterproofing , but still , a great phone for a flagship .
Nice phone, camera is nice, ui is featureful and screen is big everything is great but battery score disappointed me being 4000mah and oreo I was expecting score of around 92hrs since xz1 with smaller battery can get around the same score will see how mate10 pro socres since it has 1080p screen

By your logic Huawei's battery will be great too, because it has similar results in their review.

Sorry but my usage is excellent. 30 hours on average per charge with everything i can do on it. Far from crap. Although i can understand your frustration that you cannot comprehend efficiency. But thank you for the well wishes.
Battery life is far below expectation for 4000 mAh. In general to be perfectly honest I see no reason for Mate 9 owners to switch to Mate 10.

It's sad that you have to chose between a big battery with bad optimizations or small battery with good optimizations. In the end, battery life is still equally crappy.
Kirin 970 is no match in efficiency compared to the a11 and sd835. I feel Huawei skip on the Cooper pipe(liquid cooling) to save cost.

There should be no compromise; otherwise, huawei should have just stuck with a 1080p period. Only samsung has definitively shown that QHD doesn't have to sacrifice battery life.
The Mate 10 is one of my favorite phones this year, besides the V30 and Note8

poor battery performance with a 4000mah. Goes to show that Huawei has a long way to go with their Kirin chipset and UI optimization.

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.
