There seems to be no stopping Huawei from trying to claim the top spot in the world of android devices and smartphones in general. Fresh out of the oven so to speak, the new flagship Huawei Mate 10 Pro has just been launched and it is easily the best offering from Huawei to date. Porsche fans will be delighted with the Porsche Design variation of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.
At 6inches the Huawei Mate 10 Pro doesn’t feel as big in hand as would be expected. The back panel is all glass, Gorilla Glass 5 to be specific, which is to be expected these days from the high end phones. The phone is also water and dust resistant, as it should be and comes with a well performing fingerprint scanner.
Design and Display
The 6inch Full HD+ display on this phone is quite impressive. The colours have an amazing vibrancy on screen and even the blacks look as they should, black. Overall the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a really good looking phone, sleek and slim with gorgeous curved edges complimented by the use of glass back panel. There are subtle design elements that are noticed upon closer inspection like the stripe pattern across the camera lenses at the back and once seen must be appreciated for Huawei’s attention to the details.
Charging and Power
The Mate 10 Pro is certainly not the smallest flagship around, but its size lends itself to other important aspects like the battery. The monster 4000mAh battery will easily give you a day’s use doing all the fun things like browsing, talking and texting, playing games and even taking pictures. Once all that is said and done, Huawei’s supercharging feature will have you back at full power in no time!
Continuing to enjoy its partnership with Leica, the cameras on the Mate 10 Pro are as amazing as the rest of this phone. At the back there are two sensors, one a 12MP colour sensor and the other a 20MP monochrome sensor, which means together you’re getting one powerful camera to cater to all your picture taking needs. Up front there’s an 8MP camera that will wow with its selfie taking abilities. The picture quality is certainly something to write home about, get ready to be the designated photographer amongst everyone you know if you get the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.
Processing and Storage
Proving it’s no slouch when it comes to the performance side of things the Mate 10 Pro comes with 6GB RAM, so you can rest assured that whatever you may throw at this phone, it will handle it wonderfully. The storage is also impressive with a standard 128GB that’s bound to be challenging to use up.
Huawei has not disappointed with the Mate 10 Pro, providing a beautifully designed, powerful smartphone. While its size may spook some, it feels good in hand and should fit comfortably in your pocket without protruding. It performs like a dream and will more than likely exceed any expectations you may have of it. Definitely a contender to be considered if you’re in the market for a new smartphone that checks all the important boxes.
