Huawei confirms 4,000 mAh battery for its Mate 10 flagship
by Cosmin Vasile / Oct 05, 2017, 1:12 PM
We're less than two weeks away from Huawei's big unveiling event and the Chinese company has picked up the pace concerning teasers. The Mate 10, and possibly all its other models, are going to be almost similarly specced, so there will be a couple of differences.
However, the battery might not be one of the components that will be different depending on the model. We suspect the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will come with the same battery inside, but we have yet to confirm the information.
What we do know for certain is the fact that Huawei has decided to include a 4,000 mAh battery inside the Mate 10. The Chinese smartphone company has just published another teaser that confirms the 4,000 mAh battery for the Mate 10.
Unfortunately, the message accompanying the GIF isn't that encouraging: “That feeling when your battery lasts all day on a single charge. Huawei Mate 10 coming October 16, 2017.” Well, one day of use for a phablet with a 4,000 mAh battery is not at all impressive.
In any case, we now know that the Huawei Mate 10 comes with the same 4,000 mAh battery that's included with the predecessor. And we'll see about that battery life after we actually test the smartphone.

Apple and Samsung, please take "note". You batteries by now on a large phone should be very close too 4000 or over in the case of Samsung. Get it together guys. These OEM's are charging far less cost for phones with good things to offer. Bells and whistles are OK, but let's deal with substance first.

I agree with most of what you said (especially about the batteries), but your comment about the price doesn't fit in this case. The Mate 10 versions are expected to start at over $800 & go past $1000. Same prices as any Apple or Samsung flagship phone.

I got a S8 a week ago and it's battery has been the best out of any smartphone I've used. Charged it to 100 percent at 9 in the morning and didn't need to charge it again until midnight. That included watching YouTube videos with full resolution at 50 percent brightness and power saving mode turned off. You can tell the difference in efficiency from the SD820 to the 835

The Mate 9 battery life was below par for a 1080P device with 4000mah. My P10 has a 3200mah battery, 1080P and a 5.1 inch screen and the battery life isn't that great but standby is excellent. I wouldn't get too excited. My Xiaomi battery life with 4000mah is extraordinary with similar software optimizations available as emui. So I can only conclude that the Kirin chip isn't very efficient.

ITS kirin gpu, anandtech did test it, it consume more than 9 watts which is horrible, for comparison adreno consume 2 to 3 watts in same test. check here. https://www.anandtech.com/show

2017 is the year of small bezels. Let's hope 2018 is the year of big batteries.

Very exaggerated. Always is with Chinese phones. It’s more mike 3000mah. Just like all the import battery packs.

I have the Chinese Mate 9 and if I'm not on it all the time, it will last 2 days. If I'm on it all day long it will still last all day. I'm happy with that. I can charge it in the morning while I shower and it is done by the time I'm ready for work. The quick charge works well. 30 minutes or less of charging gives me a day of juice. I'm hoping that the Mate 10 will be even better. But, even if it is the same I'm a happy camper. I really like the EMUI skin on Huaweis as well. I have the P9 as well. And their tablet. I like that it is so customizable. I also like that they have the pressure sensitive screens. But for this article, I'll stick to batteries. haha I like them.
