After four days of reading reviews on gsmarena at work, I finally decided to go with the Honor 10 and 3 days in, I could not be happier with my decision.
The camera on this thing is much better than expected, coming from the Google Pixel, it's a much better camera and I have gotten used to - the AI software knows exactly what you're looking at and sets a color tone for ex: plants, ancient buildings, people, etc. and gets is well.
The battery life lasted me all day at work 730am until I got home around 8pm with 22%, which is a huge pro for me.
On top of that the phone is really gorgeous, when the light hits the blue - purple colors fly out - looks like a flagship phone.
For $430 (here in thailand), you can not get a better phone. Don't overt think it, commit.
mhk2012, 05 Jun 2018Mate 10 or Honor 10?
which one is better for buy?mate 10.
this is honor . even spec look nice but the stardard not same.
i got mate 10. battery life ,fingerprint sensor all great. this cant
the fingerprint sensor are so lousy. its not like my mate 10 or xiaomi redmi 5 plus so sensitive and accurate with easy one touch.
i think this sensor got a lot defect. even i follow instruction also cant 100% accurate by one touch unlock
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2018There is a serious issue with how you test contrast ratio/black levels. I have both Honor 8 an... moreHuman eye is much more adaptive than sensor. That's why a sensor will measure objectively all the time and that's why you don't see the exact same thing on a picture taken in darkness as what you see with your eyes under the same circumstances. Imagine this eye sensitivity multiplied by "who knows how much" and you'll get a cat's eye view.
I can't wait to see the revisit review of this phone after the planned GPU turbo software update.
I have a doubt, in the conclusions says that the Nokia 7 has similar performance, is it correct?
No timely updates, but improving lately (we shall see until when)
No community development (Kirin SOC).
Not a clean OS that I can top-up with features of my own preference, or just as it is.
Not able to unlock bootloader anymore (I don't want the bloatware).
No, thank you.
Not QC, so no go for me. Heavily invested in QC chargers in the home, in the car and on the move.
Kangal, 03 Jun 2018Huawei's quite predictable, and that's a good thing.
It goes "Mate -> P -> Honor" each ... moreUnfortunately the Honor models loose much more with the recent models.
Gone is laser-focus and dual-colour flash from the Honor 8. Gone is that sensor that can be used as a convenient button (e.g. shortcut to flashlight)
This particular model even has its design wrong. Why trying to make it bezel-less at the top (with that ugly notch) but keeping that big chin at the bottom. WTF???
BTW. This device is technically almost the same as the View 10. Which is imho a much better looking device if only thanks for a notchless screen on the view 10.
When comparing recent models it seems to me that the Honor 8 was a true gem and last real flagship-killer. These new models are too much compromised.
Huawei's quite predictable, and that's a good thing.
It goes "Mate -> P -> Honor" each cycle.
They recycle components from the luxury line, to their flagship line, to their midrange line... its a good tactic that seems to work well for them. The hidden danger is when you hit a plateau in SoC innovation for 2 years, then it makes the whole company look dull and un-innovative. And its for this reason why Apple leads with a wide margin, because they can hold back innovation at a steady pace, and use software advances and design innovations during the period of plateau. That's also great for their backers and investors.
Geric.770, 03 Jun 2018Cause everyone doesn't have tripods. If you are buying this phone for that excellent Night mod... moreYes, you're right. But GSMArena should give some praises at least. That 20 secs is worth it. I do check some Night mode results from other website, it's incredible!
I saw the p20 style night mode(the one where it turns 3 times) on the honor 10 display unit at the shop. It was hidden in more modes and called something different I forgot the name.
vrvly, 02 Jun 2018oppo and nokia looks better shooters.I agree with Nokia, but 100% NO on Oppo (bottle gourd :D).
LIRKER, 02 Jun 2018"There is a Night mode on the Honor 10 - this shot requires a tripod and up to 20s of waiting ... moreCause everyone doesn't have tripods. If you are buying this phone for that excellent Night mode, Welp buy a tripod or any stabiliser.
Great cameras for its price!
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2018So for the same price almost, you can get the Oneplus 6 with 6 gb ram and a bigger amoled scre... moreNo the One Plus 6 is more expensive than the Honor 10. The Honor 10 is only £399
The very similarly specced Honor View10 was available for quite a while at £330 in the UK.
The just before the Honor 10 launches, it shoots up to £450, with this occupying the £399 slot. Talk about playing the market.
I have this. Very decent mobile but it could be cheaper considering lots of missing tic boxes like 6 plus inches AMOLED, IP rating missing, etc... But it is a perfect iPhone replacement (could very well be iPhone X with IPS LCD).
It's AI features like portrait, lighting mode, facelock, looks really cool.
Performance is debt of not outrageous. Good enough for normal usages.
