Hi! If you dont like the default audio output quality to 3.5mm jack (and rightly so), there is a solution!
Install PowerAmp 3 Beta (there is a button for this in the 2.0 app), go to Output settings and enable "Wired Headset" in "OpenSL ES HD Output". This will drastically and completely change the output quality for the better, now you can actually enjoy the sound!
Audio has been retest, and its solid! Excellent. Now waiting for the proper battery life retest.

Out of the box it came with about 85% on a friday when I unpacked and it lasted until monday with close to 8h SoT. It's written in the review that they need to do another battery test, so there is that. Also I should add that I am in EU.

Had them, didn't like the small screen -> upgraded to bigger phone and I was happy again. So it's good to have some bigger phones to choose from too.

I really love this nifty little feature, never buy a phone without it.
I am currently using Honor 8 Pro and have already updated it to Oreo in India. Phone's performance is buttery smooth. Have recommended this phone to friends who are equally pleased with it.

Honor View 10 > Oneplus 5t killer
All is because V10 cheaper than 5t. If price the same, theres no doubt 5t got the upper hands.

Kirin 970 is generally superior to the SD835. Plus the 5t costs about $100 more than the View 10... and comes without memory card expansion.
The View 10 16 MP camera is class leading for this price segment. When it comes to pure photography - the OnePlus 5t can't compete with it. The Honor lens is sharper, its better at low light high ISO, it renders details, especially foliage much better, the selfie camera is better, and the dynamic range is definitely a step ahead of the 5t.
OnePlus started as the option providing consumers with the best bang for your buck - Who would have thought that Huawei would beat them at their own game.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2018To bad dishonor will only update this phone with one major update and delay security updates. I'm using Honor 8 pro, got emui 5.1 from 5.0 update, december security patch, and now oreo emui 8.0 with AI features. Rumors are bad, and it become worse when non honor user like u believe it. For the price of the phone, I have no complains.

Huawei is coming out with WAAAY too many 6 inch phones. I don't want ANY of them --
too large. Some people want other sizes. I'm surprised they don't have more offerings that are similar in size to the Galaxy S8.
The first thing I went to read is the battery life. Why do Honor phones have such low endurance ratings (atrocious video playback time especially) despite having larger batteries than most other phones?
Those tripod low-light samples are impressive, seems the software enables quite a large range to tune it up.
Honor's design was always on point,no complains there,the chipset was always powerful,it's too bad after 3 years,starting from honor 7,8 and 9 their video recording was always poor and major lost of focus and they never included good EIS.Both 1080 30 fps and 60 fps had decent color saturation and the quality was nice but that major lost of focus and less details on front of the cars was a huge bummer.I am guessing it's the same camera lens on the honor 9 only tiny bit improved with more mods.
Huawei's multi tasking and UI is always smooth in any budget or mid range or flag ship device even though it's a huge reskin over stock android and i like it.
For the price they did a great job and it looks like a toe to toe competitor with the OnePlust5T.Plus it's available everywhere.
Pros: Great powerful chipset,smooth experience,decent camera (better than xiaomi's at least) and nice design.
Cons:Video Quality not so good.Looking at Huawei honor 8 announcement i am guessing this phone will get Oreo 8.1 and possibly after a year Android 9.0 but no more than that except for their new EMUI which always will be updated. So not so many android updates.
Build quality with bend tests is kinda questionable but we will yet to see.
[deleted post]I use both Sony and Huawei/Honor devices. Dont talk trash and keep praising sony only, both devices got it pros and cons. Dont know about other china brand phones, but huawei a very very good phone. Experience it urself, stop living in a cave. I love sony's media (music player, video player, launcher,)...but to compares with huawei, better camera image processing even without OIS (examine it very details), louder speaker. Battery are pretty much the same, now this Honor V10 use AI machine learning, it got better after every usage and charging, proved in XDA forum from many users already....admin said it they not using proper retails unit, so dont make accusation. Opinion based on peoples preferences is good, but never said thrash about it because U NEVER EXPERIENCE IT.
Thumps up for you guys for bringing so much detail in the review especially the design section where most of the reviewers would have missed the different design this time- of plastic frame and metal back.
