2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Absolutely dazzling glass design, identical to the much more expensive P20 Pro - this phone is a looker
  • Easy to use with one hand
  • The fingerprint sensor below the display is molded into the bezel itself - there's no depression where a home button would normally be, which gives the phone a neat, seamless look - the sensor also doubles as a touch-sensitive home button when the phone's in use
  • Very good, modern 19:9 tall display, with minimal bezels, and a 'notch' design, like the iPhone X - the display itself is sharp and bright
  • Packed with powerful top-end hardware - the phone runs the same top-end Kirin 970 chip found in Huawei's flagship (Huawei makes the chip itself) and gives almost identical performance - thus putting it in the league of the top-end flagship phones, at a much cheaper price - apps load quickly, photo editing is hassle-free and demanding games play very well
  • Good set of dual cameras on the back, enhanced by Huawei's AI tech - the camera uses artificial intelligence to detect what scene is being photographed and tweaks the image accordingly - and it works quite well - overall the cameras are only one notch below the best of the best like the Pixel 2 (which costs a lot more)
  • Good front camera too
  • Loud speaker
  • Good battery life - will last the day with moderate to heavy use
  • On the whole, the Honor 10 is a pretty solid phone, and delivers the same fast speeds and stylish colours as its flagship cousin the Huawei P20 Pro (although not quite the same superlative camera quality), at a much lower price, and has a standard headphone jack too - it's also a solid alternative to the excellent OnePlus 6, within this price bracket
  • Sleek, well-built, classy design - the smartphone feels premium in terms of material used as well as the fit and finish
  • The bundled case adds grip to the slippery metal smartphone
  • The front facing fingerprint sensor is gesture enabled just like Moto gestures on the Moto phones - you can touch the fingerprint sensor to go back, touch and hold to go back home and slide left or right to see the multitasking menu - it’s quite functional once you get used to it - it also frees up the displays real estate from onscreen buttons
  • Beautiful, vibrant 18:9 edge-to-edge display, with very good sunlight legibility
  • Good set of AI/Intelligent features add to the phone's usefulness - camera person/object recognition for portrait mode, smart face unlocked notifications, intelligent display orientation, intelligent reading mode - it's all useful stuff and things that simply work, without requiring any involvement from your side
  • Fast and fluid performance all through, comparable to OnePlus 5T and other flagship phones - everything from daily use to high-end graphic games is buttery smooth
  • Very good dual rear camera setup - put simply, images clicked from the phone in both day light and low-lit shots are well-done - in fact bokeh images clicked on the View 10 are somewhat better than the other excellent camera phone of this price bracket, the OnePlus 5T
  • The front facing camera is pretty decent too - and offers few nifty features, Snapchat like AR based filters, software based background softening (bokeh) with the single front facing camera, etc
  • With the overall camera performance, if we were to draw a comparison with the excellent OnePlus 5T, the Honor View 10 is in the same league with in fact slightly better low-light performance and bokeh mode
  • The sound from the mono speaker is pretty decent - you can enjoy a YouTube video at full volume in a decently populated noisy office and still get by without feeling the need for higher decibel levels
  • Dual-4G standby is one feature that no other phone can boast of today, and might be important to many users
  • Good battery life - comparable to the OnePlus 5T - you can easily run the device for a full work-heavy day with plenty of battery to spare
  • Fast charging support - goes from 0 to 100 in 90 minutes - though it's not quite as fast as the OnePlus 5T with Dash Charging, it is still quite fast
  • On the whole, this is the best device by Honor to date, and will give some tough competition to the excellent OnePlus 5T - it's a close call between the two, with the Honor coming out slightly ahead in the camera, and the OnePlus 5T coming out ahead in the UI, and faster battery charging
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The glass gets slippery so you might want to use a case
  • The Honor 10's fingerprint sensor looks pretty seamless from the outside, but is somewhat hard to reach with one hand, and is can sometimes be slow and inaccurate - you might find yourself relying more on the face unlock in daily use
  • The EMUI Android skin is quite feature packed, but not the most light Android skin around
  • The phone has a little bit of a tendency to warm up when stressed during gaming and while using other heavy apps
  • The display is very good on it's own, but arguably a little behind the OnePlus 5T, which has better contrast being an AMOLED display
  • The EMUI software on the whole is pretty decent, and fluid throughout, but a little cluttered - most users might prefer the simpler, close-to-stock approach of the likes of OnePlus
