Huawei Honor 10 Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Honor 10 from Huawei comes at a time of OnePlus 6 launch and is poised to give a good competition to the same. While the OnePlus 6 remains Amazon exclusive, the Honor 10 is being sold exclusively via Flipkart. Coming to the display part, this smartphone has a 5.84 Fullview Full HD Plus display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and has a notch design. The colour and clarity on this Honor 10 display is absolutely amazing and is one of the finest seen till date. You would have a good experience watching videos or viewing your photos.

On the design side, Honor 10 has a glass body design with an aluminium frame that looks very premium. The back of the phone gives different colour tint when seen from different angles and has a 2.5 glass protection. Honor claims that it has stacked more than 15 layers of glass over each other to achieve it. The back has an Honor logo and AI Camera embedded indicating that the camera has AI capabilities.

Much of the design and display, let us take about the performance now, Honor 10 is powered by Kirin 970 processor which scores a massive 213000 on the antutu benchmark. This score lies midway of the OnePlus 5T (powered by Snapdragon 835) and the recently launched OnePlus 6(powered by Snapdragon 845). The performance is simply amazing with no lag or any bug, crash or any issue faced with any level of multitasking. 

Let us now discuss the most important part of Honor 10, the camera.  It is a camera-centric phone with AI capability on both the front and rear camera. The shutter speed is very fast and the camera clicks the images almost instantly. It auto-detects the object in the image and changes the colour and the sharpness on the basis of AI analysis. The rear camera is a dual camera with a 16MP monochrome sensor + 24MP RGB sensor and has all the features of portrait shots, AI shots, pro mode, moving pictures mode to click different types of the photograph and a lot more. The quality of the camera images is just amazing and you would love it all the time. The image clarity is perfect, the sharpness is perfect and is one of best camera phone for a budget of 30000. On the rear camera, there is a feature to adjust the aperture and before clicking the photos.

On the front camera of Honor 10, we have a 24 MP sensor with a 1.8 um pixel size which is higher than seen in any front camera and hence clicks beautiful low light images. The camera images are again stupendous and you will not have any reason to dislike it whatsoever in any condition. The front camera also has AI mode, pro mode and beautification mode. The AI can recognize more than 500 scenarios in 22 different categories in real time and also had the capability of subject recognize like building, sea, lake etc. You also have the option to enable/disable the AI at any time.

Honor 10 has a battery pack of 3400 mAh that keeps it alive for a minimum of a day with normal usage. Heavy usage can somewhat skid the backup timings to less than a day but the fast charger will be available for your rescue which can charge 50 percent in just 24 minutes while the full phone charging takes approx 90 minutes. There is a headphone jack, a Type C port and a speaker at the bottom. There is no IP rating so protect your phone from any damage by dust and water.

Honor 10 has an internal memory of 128GB, has dual sim usage but no SD card to expand the memory. Though we believe, 128 GB of internal storage would be very much sufficient for most of the users. For unlocking, Honor 10 has a face unlock feature and a fingerprint unlock. The fingerprint sensor is on the front which is embedded on the display itself, on the glass part at the bottom of the screen. Both the methods of unlocking are very accurate and are super quick. This smartphone runs on EMUI 8.1 which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo 8.1. The UI has some bloatware but is smooth is usage. There is no app drawer by default but can be added from settings.

There is one small shortcoming we observed was at the time of gaming. After 15-20 minutes of gaming, there was some heating observed but it could be due to some optimization and Honor can fix with a quick software update.

Overall, Honor 10 has stunning looks clubbed with great usage and camera performance. It is a good competitor to the OnePlus 6. Both Honor 10 and OnePlus 6 misses out on some points like wireless charging, Quad HD display, IP67 or IP68 certified for water and dust proof to be a flagship killer. But the pricing of 32999 and some launch discounts make it an attractive buy and a good value for money smartphone.
