Just look at the difference in battery life, give me battery over 2k anytime. There's a reason there are so few 2k lcd phones, max for lcd should be fullhd, the battery trade off is too great.
Pabliell, 04 Nov 2017Mate 9 pro was even smaller with 4000 mAh battery and there was still room for the jack. Huawe... moreMate 9 pro is only 2mm taller while 0.5mm wider. In addition its a 5.5inch screen = more space than 6 inch screen.
And all this complaining because you now have to plug your earphone from the 3.5mm jack to the usb-c jack ? How painful is that ?

Never had scratched back. Sure some plastic can easily be scratched, but not if it's made the way it should. And glass will always be more prone to scratches so there is zero advantage, only disadvantages.
Battery life is better, but i expected higher tbh out of a 1080p amoled screen 4000mah phone. At least it's better than the regular mate 10. However, no expandable memory and no 3.5mm jack easily make it non-viable.
Just another dongle phone. Such an idiotic tendency to remove 3.5 mm jack even among manufacturers never noticed in doing customer hostile things.
GSMarena staff , going a little bit offtopic . Please do a review of the IPhone X. Even though we all know the details . We would like to see the performance benchmark comparisons and minor camera changes

glass is better choice, yup it will break but the replacement part is jut like $10 or something
Side note: the battery endurance though, something rare in flagship
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2017Samsung has a smaller battery = more space for fitting a headphone jack.Mate 9 pro was even smaller with 4000 mAh battery and there was still room for the jack. Huawei just went the lazy way to introduce waterproofing. It is much easier to do with less holes.
Simply, Mate 10 Pro is the best phone on the market.
Facts don't lie:
1. Great looks (subjective, but it's great)
2. Great camera (f1.6 is the best there is)
3. Big screen and high sreen to body ratio
4. Big battery (learn Note 8)
5. Fast CPU and strong GPU
6 Fingerprint sensor in the correct place (learn Samsung, learn)
So called 'disadvantages':
1. QHD is a gimmick and human eye can't see the difference between it and FHD. Period
2. 3.5 mm jack - I never use it, so I don't care
3. Micro SD - you don't need it because of 128 GB storage
Except Xperia, only Huawei Mate 10 can recognize the scene on auto?
Very good phone, battery life too. Wish it had the 3,5mm -plug, though.
Beautiful phone. But no headphone jack. So sad to see every manufacturers doing this..
I don't understand a few things in modern phones.
Firstly - the glass back. It looks nice, allows for wireless charging (which is not implemented in most of the glass phones) and better signal reception. But it's fragile, so you have to put a case on in, covering all the looks. So I ask: why not plastic? It can look the same as glass, has the same advantaged considering the signal and it won't break on drop. It's also much cheaper, but you'll say it doesn't feel premium. But you always do put a case on it, don't you?
Secondly - lack of a headphone jack. For waterproofing? Ask Samsung, they've done it already. For slimness? Well, 7mm is still more than enough to fit it in. Moving into a wireless digital era? Then put wireless headphones in the box. If not, then allow me to choose which type of accessory I want to use instead of forcing me to buy a new one.
2016 started making phones less friendly and it seems 2017 has doubled the inconveniences.
Here for the people complaining about the lack of a headphone jack. Oh, and also people complaining about the resolution.
