Reviews for the Huawei P10 Plus

80% Huawei P10 Plus review: Plenty of plusses from Huawei's colourful 5.5-inch phone
Source: Pocket Lint English
Having used the P10 Plus for a week, we know for sure that we won't be stepping back into the smaller P10 (despite having the more exciting looking blue colour in that device). Why? Because the Plus is the better device. And while it's not quite as budget as was suggested at Huawei's unveiling press conference, it's still worth its asking price considering everything that's on board.

90% Huawei P10 Plus review: a power-packed big screen superphone to reckon with
Source: T3 English
Despite a few flaws, we’re big fans of the power-packed and fun P10 Plus. It offers much more than the standard P10 and is a serious competitor to the iPhone 7 Plus.

Huawei P10 Plus review
Source: GSM Arena English
There's no right or wrong way to end a story, but it would be unfair to the P10 and the P10 Plus to not give them what they well deserve. Huawei simply did a good job. The P-series has come a long way, thanks in no small part to strategic partnerships in design and imaging. Huawei's own Kirin 960 chipset (HiSilicon's a Huawei subsidiary) is another major part of the equation.

80% Huawei P10 Plus review
Source: PC Advisor English
The P10 Plus is another solid smartphone from Huawei offering attractive design, high-end hardware and much improved software. However, it's missing a few features compared to rivals such as waterproofing and wireless charging. The phone is also pretty expensive so you're probably better-off getting the regular P10 or even cheaper options like the OnePlus 3T or Honor 8 Pro.

80% Huawei P10 Plus review: A straight-shooting upgrade with a Leica camera that still shines
Source: Mirror English
Huawei has produced another stunner of a phone. The camera is undoubtedly the highlight but it also has all the other necessities for a modern smartphone.

The P10 Plus is Huawei’s best phone to date. It isn't perfect, but it ticks most of the boxes for an impressive 2017 flagship. It’s fast, looks attractive and has an excellent-sized display. The Leica-engineered camera is ace too, and the wider aperture makes a huge difference when comparing it to the regular Huawei P10.

100% Huawei P10 Plus review
Source: Stuff TV English
We thought the regular P10 was a great Android phone, with few flaws beyond screen resolution and battery life - which were both average, rather than flagship-worthy.

89% Huawei P10 and P10 Plus review
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are not perfect, but they are about as close as it is possible to get right now. They offer almost all the benefits of the larger Mate 9 flagship but in smaller, more manageable form factors. To put this is in perspective, most smartphones in the 5.1-inch range don’t have half the features of the regular P10, and the P10 Plus can comfortably hold its own against any of the 5.5-inch flagships around right now, even if some might argue it’s a little overpriced.

Huawei P10 + P10 Plus review: Great phones, with one fatal flaw
Source: Android Central English
Personally, the whole oleophobic kerfuffle with the Huawei P10 has considerably dampened my enthusiasm for these phones. This is a core hardware feature which has been the norm in just about every flagship smartphone for the past decade. The P10 forces me to choose between two bad options: leave the screen protector on and deal with a display that feels like crappy plastic, or take it off and live in a frustrating hellscape of screen smudges.

90% Test Huawei P10 Plus : le vrai haut de gamme de la marque
Source: Phone Arena English
Avec ce P10 Plus, Huawei livre enfin son smartphone le plus haut de gamme qui ne se contente pas d’être une version plus grande du P10, mais vient l’améliorer sur un point clé : l’appareil photo. La marque chinoise veut, via son partenariat avec Leica, s’imposer sur le marché des photophones. Après avoir changé la manière dont on prend des photos sur smartphones avec le Huawei P9, la marque améliore encore sa formule.

Considering the P10 Plus is slated to cost only €50 more than the regular P10 – €649 vs €699 – it seems the larger handset is the one to go for. Benefits include a wider aperture camera, higher-resolution screen, decent 3,750mAh battery, all the while maintaining a thin and sleek design. What's not to like?

Huawei P10 Plus preview: Premium package, without a price hike
Source: Pocket Lint English
On first look, there are a lot of reasons to like the P10 Plus. It's a nice evolution from the P9 Plus which we liked, and with the improved cameras and much better software experience with EMUI 5.1 and Android Nougat, we're very much looking forward to testing it further.

Huawei P10 & P10 Plus hands-on: first impressions of the world's first 4.5G smartphones
Source: It Pro English
In the brief time we spent with the P10 and P10 Plus, we didn't really find that much which completely blew us away, but on the other hand we didn't find much to dislike either. It's exactly what you'd expect from a flagship Android phone in 2017 – nothing more, and nothing less – which means the answer to the question of "should you buy this?" largely comes down to whether you've used Huawei phones before and liked them. If you have, then you're going to like the P10.

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.
