Huawei pokes fun at Samsung, touts the 2-day battery life of its Mate 10

In a few new video commercials released on YouTube today, Huaweipresents its Mate 10 smartphone series (announced last month) as being superiorto the competition - at least in some regards.


In one of the new videos, Huawei introduces us to a young smartphoneowner who uses both a Mate 10 Pro, and a Samsung Galaxy S8 (this phone's nameisn't specifically mentioned, but it's clearly an S8, probably the + model). Living with the device that's not made by Huawei is presented as being complicated, as you'd need to often charge its battery,either directly from a wall socket, or with a portable power bank. With theMate 10 Pro, suggests Huawei, you won't have this problem too often.

Update: Huawei seems to have edited the appearance of the Galaxy S8 - its front doesn't fully match the real handset, but its rear (including the fingerprint scanner) certainly does.


Huawei's other two new vide commercials imply that, compared to other smartphones, the Mate10 provides a smoother performance, while also being betterat recognizing objects and scenes - thanks to a Leica-branded dual rear cameraand a Kirin 970 processor (which includes a dedicated NPU that handles AI tasks). 


As reported not long ago, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro could bereleased in the USas an AT&T-exclusive, but probably not before the end of the year. For now,it's not clear if the non-Pro Mate 10 is also headed stateside. Until we hear more about this, we're inviting you to check out our Huawei Mate 10 Pro review.

Huawei's 4000mah mate 10 pro battery is not better than 3000mah of Samsung galaxy s8, there are many videos on YouTube with almost same results , Huawei's cpu gpu not optimised well

A 4000 mamp battery is going to be better than a 3000 mA battery. As in it’s going to put out more electricity or at least for a longer time that does not mean the processor is better or not but it does mean that the battery itself is better.

Huawei has been releasing some incredible smartphones lately. Very impressed with what I’ve been seeing from them.

It's the second worst among android flagship, lol.. At least it can beat iPhoneX, iPhone8+, and a nokia. Note8, V30, and OP5 is the 2017 battery champion. (and OP5T)

Huawei's battery’s are smaller than claimed. Most Chinese OEM’s make these claims of these huge batteries. I had a Mate 9 and while it was a decent device it didn’t measure up really in any aspect to my 8+ or my iPhone X. I tried other budget phones like the Axon 7, OP5, and they are drastically improved but fall short in display, battery life, software optimization.

If you want stellar battery life get the Lenovo P2.

I don't know why Huawei made mocking with Samsung. The 10 mate lost in the camera and battery life in the Mrwhosetheboss channel on YouTube

Huawei Mate 10 also lost in speed to the note 8 on the Captain phones channel, also on YouTube. Not counting the "dead" LCD screen
