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

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...

Before you go dirt cheap, consider spending a bit more on the Nikon D5600

 

There are only some minor tweaks over the almost 2-year-old D5500, but it remains a great, slightly-more-than-cheap dSLR.

The Nikon D5600 delivers excellent photo quality for its price class, as well as performance that can keep up with your kids and pets.

It may be too small for people with larger hands and it turns off the self-timer after every shot in single-shot mode.

Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5600 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR for its price class.

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro review: Huawei's fantastic phablet is a winner

 

With great battery life, cameras and utterly gorgeous design, the Mate 10 Pro in particular is a fantastic phone

Attractive design ; Great battery life ; Excellent camera

No 3.5mm headphone jack (on the Pro)

Whatever your priorities, though, you’ll find the Mate 10 Pro a competitive, competent smartphone that’s been put together with a huge amount of care and attention. It’s a very good smartphone indeed, and well worth a Best Buy award.
