Huawei Mate 10 Review

Score: 78.9 / 100

Huawei Mate 10 is an incredible phone launched in 2017, coming with a 5.9" screen, a very fast 2360 MHz Octa-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 12 megapixels back side camera and an 8 MP front camera. We will get a better idea about this device's wonders when we get into deeper details.

Huawei decided to equip this cellphone with a HiSilicon Kirin 970 chip, backed up by a very powerful 2360 MHz Octa-Core CPU with a large 4 GB RAM memory. The Huawei Mate 10 comes with a 64 GB awesome internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, which allows the user to install tons of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about running out of space.

Whereas this phone is only 5.93 inches long, it still manages to contain a 5.9 inches display. Being just 0.32 inches thick,the Huawei Mate 10 is incredibly slim and practical. It seems like Huawei forgot about weight optimization in this 6.56 ounces cellphone. This phone design uses Glass and Metal . The Huawei Mate 10 is for sale in many color variations like black, brown, gold and pink.

The Huawei Mate 10 has two cameras, a 12 megapixels back side camera and an 8 megapixels front facing camera. Its back side camera has a 1.6 aperture so it can take beautiful photos even in poor lighting situations. It is also able to shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow-motion videos at 60 fps (2 times slower than regular videos). In addition, the camera features auto-focus and time lapse video.

Huawei designed this phone with an astonishing 5.9 inches display, and a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes everything look amazing.

The Huawei Mate 10 has a 4000 mAh big Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery providing this phone an amazing battery duration. An issue to take into account is that the Huawei Mate 10's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to live shorter, even though with its 4000 mAh you will probably buy a new device before that happens.

This phone provides WiFi capability (which can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), LTE-A 4G super quick connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This device also features plenty of great features like Biometric fingerprint, Facial unlock, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth and GPS (Global Positioning System), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Huawei offers this cellphone for $ 239, quite close to other similar cellphones. No matter whether you are looking for a gamer phone, want it to take many pictures, want it for work or want a social cellphone, this phone is probably a great choice . This device is packed with Charger, USB-C cable, Headphones, Quick Start Guide and Flexible Clear Case.
