5 things that would have made the Huawei P10 better


Huawei just unveiled the new P10 and P10 Plus at MWC in Barcelona. The P10 is a direct successor to last year's P9, and as such retains much the same screen and body size, while partially improving on the excellent Leica-branded dual-cam setup on the back.

Still, for all the steps that the P10 takes forward, there are many things remain unchanged since last year's model. After seeing the Huawei P10 in the flesh, we can't help but feel that it could have been an even better phone than it already is, had Huawei taken some slightly different choices when designing it.

With that said, here is a short list of features that, in our opinion, would have made the Huawei P10 an overall better phone:

I'm considering P10 along with Galaxy S7, both about the same price in my country, and what i'd really like to see in P10 is a calibrated screen and water resistence. Everything else is perfectly fine compared to S7.

Seeing the flagships from HTC, LG & Huawei, it seems the Samsung S7 Edge still remains a formidable flagship against them.

Phone Arena moaning as usual. Seriously who needs Quad HD on a 5.1 inch screen?? It's pointless i'm sorry but Phone Arena you are wrong

No one needs QHD on a little 5 Incher. Don't listen to them. They needed an excuse to fill up their article and so they did.

The biggest failing is probably the lack of worldwide availability. If they want to be the next Samsung, they need to start thinking globally when it comes to their flagship level devices.

Things that would have made Mate 9 better. Things that would have made Samsung S7 better. Things that would have made Pixel better. Things that would have made V20 better. Things that would have made some Sony Xperia Phone better (I don't care about Sony, as you can tell...!). Things that would have made HTC 10 better... And now we have a gripe list about this Huawei. And most are utter ridiculous... Bloody Quad HD on a Phone that's just 5.1" yet these dorks are perfectly fine with FHD on The iPhone Plus and some weird resolution on The standard iPhone thats just slightly better than 720p... HOW COME I DON'T SEE AN ARTICLE ABOUT THINGS WHICH WOULD HAVE MADE IPHONE 7 BETTER... Come-on... That enough. I used to think that PA is unbiased but now. I'm starting to doubt it, really. Oh well, G'Day!

because iPhone7 is already perfect, nothing can be better than that /s btw, you're right, I can't find article titled "# things that would have made the iPhone 7 better" :-/

Okay, so I was wrong. Well, sort of...! 7 Things that would have made iPhone 7 even more "awesome" (Read: More Awesome, not better). http://www.phonearena.com/news/7-things-that-wouldve-made-the-iPhone-7-even-more-awesome_id85183 And here's a string of text I'd like to quote: "OK, so the iPhone 7 Plus has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, making for a PPI density of 401, which is pretty fine. But the regular iPhone 7 still stubbornly sticks to 750 x 1334 pixels, or 326 PPI. Granted, it's pretty tough to see individual pixels with the naked eye at this resolution. But still, a minor upgrade would keep the pixelphiles happy." FHD is nice on The 5.5" iPhone Plus yet terrible on a 5.1" Huawei...!!! Let me just say; Read my lips: iPhoneArena...! G'Day!

I disagree with the Higher resolution display, FHD is perfectly fine and QHD would only go to waste on 5.1in display.

I really like this phone, the plus more so. The only thing I wish it had is less bezel.

The 4gb + 128gb version of P10 does exist as per Huawei website. But to be released only in China i guess.
