Honor View 10 launches in the US - a cheaper alternative to Huawei Mate 10 Pro
First unveiled in the US in January, during CES 2018, the Honor View 10 smartphone is now available to pre-order, and should ship to customers stateside starting March 22. Like all other Honor phones released in the US, the View 10 (also styled View10) is offered only unlocked, being compatible with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but not with CDMA/LTE carriers like Verizon and Sprint.

The Honor View 10 comes in two color versions (Navy Blue and Midnight Black), and costs $499 - a pretty attractive price for what the handset has to offer. The device shares many of its features with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro (launched last month for $799), but it’s not water-resistant, and packs a smaller battery (3750 mAh vs. 4000 mAh). 

Highlight features of the Honor View 10 include a 6-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, an octa-core Huawei-made Kirin 970 processor, dual rear camera (20 MP + 16 MP), 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of expandable storage space. The phone runs Android 8 Oreo customized with EMUI 8 (also found on the Huawei Mate 10 series).

Ok, now One+ needs to be very smart with it's new phone, since this one is hard to beat.

honestly, the View 10 has the best less-bezel design of any phone, especially due to the existence of the front FPS. While the Vivo Apex has the best bezel-less design.

I think the mate 10 is better. Smaller bezels than View 10 and still retains the front FPS. Although it has a 16:9 ratio but that's what I prefer anyways.

The 16:9 ratio is the reason I didn't mention the Mate 10. Haven't seen any flagship with a less bezel 18:9 display and still, a front FPS, other that the V10. That's what makes it stand out, and simply the best.

Yep, and I love that phone. I bought one for $479 a few days ago from eBay brand new

Oh yeah, did you get it that low with the 20% off coupon they had the other day? It's an insane value at that price. I bought mine for $580 a couple months ago and even for that price, it's still great.

The 20% coupon was insane for buying a phone, straight $100 off most of them. Almost got a mix 2 128gb for ~437

Ah ok gotcha. Yeah you're right, no other 18:9 phones seem to be doing front FPS. That's where I prefer them.

Not having Bluetooth 5 is the thing that killed it for me (and yes, I do have Bluetooth 5 audio accessories, so I'm not just saying it without reason). Otherwise, it's a great choice. Love that it does have a 3.5mm headphone jack. I tried to give non-headphone jack smartphone's a chance w/ the USB-C ports and headphone adapters, but it's just too much of an inconvenience.
