Huawei Mate 10

 

Huawei Mate 10 review, price, release date, specs and price. It's not coming to the UK, but how good does the Huawei Mate 10 look?

Takes good pictures in low light ; Great performance ; Very good battery life

EMUI software is a pain

Despite Huawei’s constant marketing spam about the greatness of its ‘co-engineered with Leica’ dual-lens cameras, I’ve always found them to be good; not great. Which is why I didn’t put much stock into Huawei’s pre-release claims about the Mate 10’s...

Huawei Mate 10 Pro review

 

From a superb camera to cutting-edge AI smarts, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro stylishly gets almost everything right.

Incredibly versatile dual-lens Leica camera ; Beautiful OLED screen with minimal bezels ; Two-day battery life ; Stylish, water-resistant body ; NPU shows promise

No headphone jack ; EMUI design falls behind competition ; Expensive

Huawei gets the design, camera, screen, and battery exactly right on the Mate 10 Pro, while the NPU and AI smarts show promise for the future. It’s an exceptional all-round smartphone package we highly recommend.

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro hands-on review

 

They're elegant and beautiful, but Huawei's Mate 10 phones feel compromised by odd design choices.

Vibrant, colorful displays ; Gorgeous design ; Large battery ; Camera output looks great ; Desktop mode is simple, easy-to-use

No headphone jack on Pro ; No Bluetooth 5 ; Glass is scratched easily ; Pro has lower resolution than regular Mate 10

This phone is hard to find, but worth the effort

 

Huawei's Mate 10 is fast, has great cameras and a beautiful big screen. It's also a good deal cheaper than an iPhone 8 Plus or Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Huawei’s Mate 10 gives you performance and cameras comparable to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 and Google’s Pixel XL 2, but for several hundred bucks less. It also has a headphone jack.

The phone’s battery doesn’t last as long as the Mate 10 Pro despite being the same size. Huawei’s Android software could be smoother and the phone isn’t getting an official release in the US or UK.

The Huawei Mate 10 may be hard for you to get your hands on, but it’s worth the effort if you want a big-screen phone and don’t quite have the budget for a Galaxy Note, iPhone Plus or Pixel 2.

Huawei Mate 10 review

 

A halfway-house between a traditional phone and a slim-screen stunner

Modern design with familiar screen size ; Brilliant battery life ; Plenty of power

Camera can’t keep up with the Pixel 2 ; EMUI still has quirks ; Mate 10 Pro actually available here in the UK

A more traditional alternative to the modern Mate 10 Pro, with a slightly easier-to-swallow price - if you live somewhere it’s on sale, anyway

Hands on: Huawei Mate X review

 

We finally get to touch the future

Amazing innovation ; High spec

Slight ridge in middle ; Very expensive

While several questions still exist, there's something just incredibly futuristic and impressive about the foldable phone. Huawei and Samsung are duking it out to be the first mainstream folder, and both are bringing something cool and unique to the...

Huawei Mate 10 review

 

A bargain of a flagship

Premium design ; Quality camera ; Powerful chipset

No real waterproofing ; EMUI not for everyone ; No wireless charging

The Huawei Mate 10 is a big phone with an excellent camera, striking design and plenty of power under the hood. Given its size, it won’t be for everyone, but with very few shortcomings it’s a definite contender for best value for money big phone of 2017.

Huawei Mate 10 Smartphone Review

 

One of the last ones of its kind. With their XXL-sized smartphone Mate 10, the Chinese manufacturer Huawei bucks the current trend towards displays with a 2:1-aspect ratio. How does the high-end phablet fare and is an import worth it?

outstanding design & feels great to the touch ; very good IPS panel ; QHD resolution (16:9) ; doesn't get very hot ; great run times ; outstanding performance

high SAR value ; camera software is lacking ; no wireless charging ; Bluetooth 4.2 ; WLAN could be faster ; only IP-53 certified ; (availability)

The Huawei Mate 10 is an outstanding smartphone. The few minor quibbles – the (in our case at least) wobbly volume rocker switch, the lack of an IP 67 certification, the context-based brightness adjustment, the post-processing of the photos – do not...

Huawei Mate X: Chinese firm announces "world’s fastest" foldable 5G phone at MWC

 

Available from mid 2019, the Mate X costs €2299

All this doesn't come cheap. Huawei is selling its Mate X for a whopping €2,299, with a release date in the "middle of 2019". Since Huawei's annoucement, Alactel owner TCL Communications has shown off its own foldable prototypes at MWC.
