Huawei Mate 10 vs Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30: Specs comparison


So, the Mate 10 is here, but is it going to take the crown of the Android space?

Surely, with a large 5.9-inch display, a snappy octa-core Kirin 970 chipset, and a hefty 4,000mAh battery at the rear, the Mate 10 is easily Huawei's true flagship device of 2017. 

But is that enough to make it a viable alternative to the top dogs on the Android scene right now, the S Pen-boasting Galaxy  Note 8 productivity powerhouse and LG's multimedia-centric V30 behemoth?
