So, the mate has water resistance or not? your articles are odd. This is the normal mate 10, it doesn't have water resistance according to other articles

Why does everyone keep comparing Androids to iPhone????!!!! Just compare android to other android phones. Until the iPhone has an actual rival with the same OS, stop using it as your measuring stick. I don’t say this as an Apple fan or Android fan, but as a tech fan.

C'mon Captain, you know exactly why they compare these phones to iPhone(s)... clicks. It's that simple. Statically speaking, less than 5% of smartphone buyers switch platforms annually, so these comparisons are literally meaningless to most of the lurkers who read these sites. So, the only reasonable explanation: fanboi wars. Same with camera comparisons, speedtests, and other arbitrary dick-measuring contests.

They're comparing smartphones to smartphones. The iPhone is a smartphone, and so are the Mate 10 and Pixel 2 XL. Or are you saying we should never have compared the Windows Phones to Androids back in the day either?
