Huawei Mate 10 Review

A few weeks after and the P20 launch, we finally had a verdict on one of Huawei's latest flagship phones in the Philippines. Even though we did not have a chance to check the "pro", the standard might be some advantages. Here's our Huawei Mate 10 review

On display and body, yes it might have a soon-to-be old school 16:9 display but the advantage of it over the Pro is the 2K display which I took advantage for viewing more high-res online videos as well as that trick for small font option trick which I can see more of my emails and Facebok so less scrolling. The stripe and the mocha brown color were fresh to me against the number of phones that I owned and reviewed mostly in black. It is quite shint at the back but it was less prone to fingerprint smudges


Connectivity? No question once again to Huawei as I may sound like a broken record here but they just always the best in the said department in calls, texts, mobile data, WiFi and GPS. The biggest downer for me was they put out the "4G toggle" icon which was a chore of going back to settings option. I also saw it on both the P20 and P20 Pro and definitely on my cons list.

Gaming with Kirin 970 was a breeze with games like Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 5 for me at the highest graphics possible

Benchmarks? Huawei just broke the 200k mark in Antutu Benchmark on it's new version 7. Seven sensors were visible here.



One improvement that I noticed on the Mate 10 over the P10 Plus was the audio department over the 3.5 mm. audio jack. My ears were very happy with the full and balanced sound that I got from various music genres that I played offline and thru Spotify.

Battery with 4,000 mAh on heavy usage for me took me an average of 1 1/2 days. You have to consider that it has 2K display which is pretty good plus the Huawei Super Charge plug helped me to be on the phone again on that less than 2 hours of charging. On video battery rundown test, it managed to survive in 21 hours and 5 minutes

On camera, the Mate 10 just as awesome as we seen from the P10 Plus that we previously reviewed. Color accuracy is there. Pro mode is on target as well as the auto mode. Simply I cannot find such weaknesses for now on the sensors.

The Huawei P20 has an international price of 649 euros at 5.8 inch display and has the same processor as the standard Mate 10. Now at Php 29,990, Huawei Mate 10 is one of the most recommended phones that you can get for under 30k. The downer for me though (and soon for the P20 duo unless they will gonna have an update) was their decision to remove the 4G toggle icon in the pulldown menu. It is 4.5 out of 5 for me on the Huawei Mate 10
