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?

Mate 10 DOES NOT have water resistance. Only the 10 Pro does.

What quality was you expecting from iPhonearena? Their questionable review scores of any phone that isn't a iPhone should let you know what your getting

The Mate 10 is rated as IP53. It has water resistance, albeit not more than spray-proofing. I think they accidentally got it mixed up with the IP67 of the Mate 10 Pro.

Huawei Mate 10 has a RGBW panel? You got to be kidding me, nobody is THAT stupid.
