Reviews for the Huawei Nova 10 Pro

75% Huawei Nova 10 Pro Review: Gorgeously mid-rangey
Source: Phone Arena English
It's really hard to review Huawei phones nowadays. The company makes really good hardware, and it's a shame that it's not allowed to support it with more mainstream software. There's no other way to put it - leaving aside the political part of it. The Nova 10 Pro is indeed a sleek and lightweight, ample midrange offering, with a great display, full retail package, and top-notch charging. Whether or not people will decide to go the adventurous route and deal with Huawei's AppGallery and re-learn and re-adjust to all the alternative software solutions, it's a hard question to ask, and answer for that matter.

Huawei Nova 10 Pro review: A unique hardware combination that’s as cool as it is pricey
Source: XDA Developers English
The Huawei Nova 10 Pro suffers from the same problems as every Huawei device before it over the past two years, and that is that it’s hard to recommend to just about everyone. I reviewed the Huawei P50 Pro earlier this year and absolutely loved it, and I’m really getting a sense of what the company is doing when it comes to AppGallery. Despite all of that, currently, it’s extremely difficult for me to switch over full-time. It doesn’t have everything that I need, and even though it’s getting there, it’s not there now. In other words, until it gets there, it’s hard to recommend it. The cameras are excellent, but between the pricing of this device (€699 is quite expensive for what’s on offer here) and the difficulty some may have as an average consumer, I don’t really know how to recommend this phone. If Revolut was your main bank and you didn’t care about getting email notifications always on time, then maybe this phone would be an easier sell. Currently, though, it isn’t. As much as I’d love it to be. For what it’s worth, this phone is a good omen that Huawei is really listening to and that things are moving along. AppGallery is improving day by day, and with localized approaches to each application service (there are Irish versions of apps on AppGallery, which is pretty impressive to me), it’s beginning to reach a point where I think I can recommend it. That day isn’t here yet, but a viable competitor in the space is, at the very least, always good for consumers. This is also a unique-enough phone in the features that it has cobbled together that I think Huawei is starting to figure out that to thrive, it needs to find a niche that works. This may well be the start.

Huawei Nova 10 Pro initial review: Camera bling
Source: Pocket Lint English
Huawei's entry to the mid-range market for 2022 is competitive, offering a sleek, attractive device with lots of high end flagship features. You can't ignore the limitations of EMUI in western markets, but things are slowly getting better and you'll not find a selfie camera system quite like this anywhere else.

First Impressions: Huawei Nova 10 Pro Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Huawei Nova 10 Pro is a new mid range smartphone from Huawei with one overt focus – taking the best selfies possible. Having had an opening to go with it, the dual sensor front camera has a lot of cool features, but questions remain about its lack of 5G support and its EMUI OS which has less apps than the more common Android and iOS platforms.

Series:

Huawei's phone business may be embattled due to software problems but it has not stopped making new phones. While most of them have not made it to European shores, the latest Huawei Nova 9 is an exception to this. In terms of its design, this device is still considered thin at 7.8mm and light at 175g. This definitely makes it rather portable while the curved edges keep it comfortable to be held on too. The rear camera module on the back comes in two different circles which houses the main camera and the remaining lenses. However, this model has no Gorilla Glass on the display and there is also no water or dust-resistant IP rating. As far as the display is concerned, the Huawei Nova 9 has been incorporated with a large 6.75-inch Full HD+ OLED display with high colour coverage. This is paired with an impressive 120Hz high refresh rate. In addition, there is also an under-display fingerprint reader, which can be quite fast and reliable. In terms of its performance, this is a firmly mid-range device which uses the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G chipset paired with an 8GB of RAM with either 128GB or 256GB of storage. It is undeniable that this is not the fastest or most powerful phone on the market, but it has got more than enough power for the average user. The performance is rather smooth and fluid even when multi-tasking, and there is enough power to run any modern smartphone game too.

In terms of its battery, the Huawei Nova 9 comes in with a 4300mAh battery which is enough for the phone to last a day’s use fairly comfortably, but definitely not enough to stretch it to two days unless for an exceptionally light usage. Fundamentally that makes the battery life fairly average for the modern market as there are phones with better battery life out there, but this is obviously not the worst though. As for its camera, this smartphone carries a 50MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The main camera being encased in its own circular housing, utilizes Huawei's RYYB pixel arrangement which the company prefers especially for low light performance. However, in this device it is not combined with optical image stabilization (OIS) which is key to really excellent night photography. Overall, in daylight the main camera is exceptional with rich colours and vivid detail in a range of conditions. Though in darker lighting results are good, the lack of OIS does show. Apart from that, the ultrawide does the job in decent lighting, but there is a marked drop in detail compared to the main lens while colours tend to be washed out. There is also a 32MP selfie camera which is quite decent. Overall, it is a great phone to be considered if the absence of Google Mobile services is not an issue.

Qualcomm Adreno 642L: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 40% faster than the Adreno 620.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.
