I don't really care about the battery test. As a P10 Plus owner, I always get 6+ hours of SOT despite the weak score in the battery test. The phone gets me to the end of the day with about 25% left. My usage includes navigating, listening to music, a lot of gaming, YouTube, and of course, a lot of video and photo taking. My friend has a mate 9 and he told he gets 8+ hours of SOT. His usage is pretty much the same as mine.
So yeah, don't put all your trust in the battery score, I'm pretty sure that you can get through full two days of battery out of the mate 10 with light to moderate usage. And a 1.5 days with moderate to heavy usage.
Hey guys, how do you change the 1440p resolution to 1080p? Do you cut off the pixels you don't want, or do you turn them off, or ... ? I mean, if you have 1440 pixels on the longer side, how do you make them to be just 1080?

Disappointed by battery life which is worse than Mate 9 in web surf and video playback. But great job on bezel cropping and photo quality. Too bad it's not available in France.
Didn't Huawei release an early fix for the heat issue?? Something I read
Thinking of getting this phone .
Its the only remaining super size phablet with 16:9 display . The surface of the display is way bigger . Thats what I was looking for .
LG superfan, 28 Oct 2017Nice phone, camera is nice, ui is featureful and screen is big everything is great but battery... more10 pro has a smaller screen with the ridiculous "improved" aspect ratio, so it may have marginally better battery life, but i don't think it's the display that consumes too much battery. Either the chipset or bas software optimization or both.
Besides, it doesn't even have a 3.5mm jack and is ultra expensive, so totally irrelevant.
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
Imperator Neubaticus, 28 Oct 2017Acceptable battery life, but below expected of a 4000mah battery. This only further solidifies... moreTrue on battery sizes. But Huawei is better in web browsing, which what majority of users would do.
