Huawei Mate 10 review

28 October 2017
The fall may as well be the season of phablets. Apple, LG and Samsung are the usual suspects but Huawei wants in too – as a front-runner, mind you, not an also-ran. Like its illustrious rivals, Huawei is also yielding to the pressure and the new Mate 10 is trying hard to please the fickle crowd.

OB, 14 Aug 2018hello everyone. i am so confused because I don't know witc... moreIf this phone (the mate 10) has the possibility to play 1440p videos on youtube, and has no bluetooth earphones delay, dont think twise, take it in a heartbeat , believe me. Clear beautifull display (clearer than oled), bright, nice video format for youtube videos, strong stereo speakers, good looking design. Fast enough i think. Good camera.

While I wish I could have the former phone back, the latter is good enough. I'm enjoying it almost as much as the mate 20 pro. Still a head turner in 2020. It does well on the essentials - aesthetics, camera, performance. May be a master of none but certsinly jack of (almost) all trades.

In 2020 after using various full screen smartphone, now I am desperately looking for Huawei mate 10, just few days ago I saw and touch this phone, but not available in Bangladesh. Told a friend living Uk and waiting, Phone should be like this, I like it very much and for me it's a complete phone. Thanks

i am so confused because I don't know witch phone I should go for the Huawei p20 o the mate 10, im from Morocco and here they have almost the same price

  • King

Hi guys,

Should i go for mate 10 or the new released p20? Since their price is almost the same

Hey guys? May i ask those using this phone if the dual sim version support 4G for both slots or only one? My previous P8 support 4G for one sim only. Planning to get this phone if it support 4g for both. Otherwise, I'll go for G6 or G7.

Dearest quality seeker friends + Huawei public relations. This flagship could have been the best smartphone of 2017-18-19 without the ugliest hybrid ,plus Bluetooth 5.1 plus audio Jack radio+radio RDS‘,otg that hopefully in Mate 20 we will witness the root changes with the nowadays standard !Nevertheless it is ultra expensive but it is still one of the best !!! Thanks Huawei for listening recommendations and GSMArena for releasing the fact-writing...Justice Rights is a public supporting enthusiast....

I am using this phone for 3 days. It's super fast and the camera is really great. I think its a really valuable phone in this price range.
The only problem is that it's very slippery in the hand.

Dearest gsmArena following friends. This phablet smartphone could have been the best hig ends smartdevice of 2017-18 without hybrid, + plus having Bluetooth 5.1 , radio + rds ,USB 3.1 and OTG ! Nevertheless this incredible less-bezel is amongst best high end China made smartphones worldwide release....Of course gsmArena review is perfect too....Hopefully all brands follow public interests for just Justice Rights as gsmArena does....Thanks all mentioned names unbiasedly....

I got confused should I buy mate 10 lite or should I go to huawei mate 10?
Does huawei mate 10 worth the difference in price? bucause the difference in price is more than a double.
I'm don't care about the camera and photo, all I want is a speed performance and good resolution and quality

AnonD-717184, 29 Nov 2017Just curious for $300 CDN difference, Mate 10 or Mate 9? Why?Mate 9 is amazing device. Minus not having LED screen and higher resolution. They should have just add Kirin 970, Mali 12, 2400x1440 Oled, NPU, make a hair narrower.
$400 US winner.

Mate 10 lcd version should be the same price that mate 9 came in on, IMO. Dont know why they moved the finger print to the front.
Mate 10 pro oled version, water resistant, 128gb internal, 6gb ram, no SD card, no headphones jack, both have no stabilized 4k.
Still does not justify the high cost, There is nothing special. Huawei if your listening, drop that price to $499 mate 10, and $599 mate 10 pro, and you will have world domination.
Guaranteed.
