Reviews for the Huawei Mate 10

Huawei Mate 10: Punchy, long battery life, artificial intelligence
Source: Bill Bennett English
The Mate 10 doesn’t have wireless charging, which is unlikely to be a deal breaker for most readers. On the plus side the long battery life means less emphasis on charging anyway. It also charges quickly, the battery goes to half a full charge in a little under 30 minutes.

88% Huawei Mate 10 — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
I’ve never had the opportunity to review a Huawei device and the Mate 10 makes me think I’ve been missing out. Huawei knows how to make great hardware and the Mate 10 is the embodiment of that. I’ll never know if previous devices were this good but I sure am glad the Mate 10 was my first Huawei device – based on this hardware I’m now really wanting to try a Huawei Watch 2.

Huawei Mate 10 First Shots: Photo Walk in QC Circle

While we’ve already given you an in-depth review of Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro, many of you are probably waiting for us to finish our evaluation of its more affordable brother. The Mate 10 is one of the most affordable flagship devices announced locally, which is a breath of fresh air considering all the above 40K flagships that have been popping up everywhere.

I do wish this phone had an IP rating to give a bit of assurance against being accidentally dunked, because in every other way it is an absolute bargain. Many of its features are what you’d expect in a phone costing at least a couple of hundred dollars more.

Huawei Mate 10 Unboxing, Quick Review: 2017’s Affordable Flagship?
Source: Unbox English
We’ve already given you our take on Huawei’s top-tier flagship, the Mate 10 Pro a few weeks ago. We’ve been thoroughly impressed with what the manufacturer has been able to achieve with their current flagship, so much so that we’re wholeheartedly recommending it to anyone looking to buy a high-end phablet that’s not made by a Korean company. But before we forget, the Mate 10 Pro has a more affordable brother that eschews fancy aspect ratios for something more traditional. With a Php 32,990 price point and much of the same hardware that made the Mate 10 Pro great, the regular Mate 10 is on the road to become one of the most prolific flagships of the year.

The Huawei Mate 10 won’t even be a consideration for anyone in the UK or the US right now given its limited availability, but if you’re reading this in Australia or another region it will be available, and are in the market for a big phone, it should definitely be a contender.

Huawei Mate 10 hands-on
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Huawei has made significant improvements in terms of hardware design in the past few years, so much so that its previous phones are almost unrecognisable. The Mate 10 might not be as slick to look at as the Mate 10 Pro, but there’s no doubt that its glass body and slim bezel are super-attractive.

The Mate 10 is a curiosity, then. It’s sort of a middle ground between last year’s flagships and 2017’s skinnier, screen-ier smartphones, with no real drawbacks - other than the fact its bigger brother does things ever-so-slightly better.

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro review: All about promises
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei Mate 10 is a the most mainstream smartphone the company has ever produced. It retains its slick looks while switching to the current trend of a glass front and back. It retains its massive battery while adding an even more efficient chipset and AI optimizations. It takes what used to be a full-featured but complicated camera and makes it incredibly reliable for pick-up-and-shoot photographers.

Earlier this week, Huawei announced two new flagship smartphones for the current season of phone releases - the 5.9-inch Huawei Mate 10, and the edge-to-edge 6-inch Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Here, we take a closer look at the smaller Mate 10.

Huawei Mate 10 Hands On: For the Core Mate User
Source: Lowyat.net English
To top it off, Huawei is pricing the Mate 10 at the very same price point as its predecessor at RM2,699; that’s pretty good price-to-performance ratio. Of course, it’s not as sleek-looking nor does it carry an IP67 rating like the Mate 10 Pro, but if you value the Mate 10’s feature set (microSD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, among others), it’s really quite a compelling flagship smartphone.

On paper and in the hand the Mate 10 looks like a limited upgrade, but powerful new internals may make this one of the top phones to buy for those who are looking for a device that doesn’t stop or slow down.

Finally, the move to all-glass designs made us hopeful that we'll get wireless charging, but we were in no luck. At least that's much easier to forgive as we get the blazing fast Huawei Super Charge.

Huawei's Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro get dual cameras, AI tech
Source: CNet English
Huawei is sticking with a similar dual camera setup to those we've seen on its P10 already. A 12-megapixel sensor shoots in color, while a 20-megapixel sensor shoots exclusively in black and white. Shots from both sensors looked great on the P10 and with the Mate 10's wider aperture (now f/1.6 on both lenses, which lets in more light) and handful of software tweaks, I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do.

Huawei has improved so much in hardware design over the past few years that its previous phones are almost unrecognisable. The Mate 10 might not be as slick to look at as the Mate 10 Pro, but its glass body and slim bezel is still attractive. It’ll be interesting to see how the Kirin 970 performs and just how the AI will affect things with prolonged use.

The Huawei Mate 10 series is shaping up to be an excellent upgrade to a popular line of smartphone. With a refreshed design, Huawei can reach a broader audience and it is undeniable that these phones keep getting better and nicer fast. As it stands, the Mate series will continue to be the best battery-oriented phone. How far it can expand from there will be the subject of our attention.

The Mate 10 Pro is clearly slimmer and thinner than the Mate 10, but the slightly smaller 5.9-inch display on the Mate 10 does offer a higher 2K pixel resolution. While the Mate 10 Pro does get rid of the 3.5mm audio jack and microSD port, it does offer IP67 dust and water resistance to make up for it. The Mate 10 Porsche Design on the other hand is more or less the Mate 10 Pro but with much nicer and more premium materials with Porsche Design content. No Malaysia release dates yet but stay tuned to TechNave.com for more Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro news.

Hands-on & More With Huawei's Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro: Kirin 970 Meets Artificial Intelligence
Source: AnandTech English
On a final thought, last week at GTC Europe, NVIDIA's keynote mentioned an understated yet interesting feature where using AI could help improve it. Ray tracing, to provide realistic scene interpretation over polygon modeling, is usually a very computationally intensive task, however the benefit is an extreme payoff in visual fidelity. What NVIDIA showed was AI assisted ray-tracing: predicting the colors of nearby pixels based on the information already computed and then updating as more computation was performed. While true ray-tracing for interactive video (and video games) might still be a far-away wish, AI-assisted ray tracing looked like an obvious way to accelerate the problem. Could this be something applied to smartphones? If there is dedicated AI hardware, such as the NPU, it could be a good fit to enable better user experiences.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
