The new Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro: yay or nay?


So, Huawei has just unveiled it's two new flagship-class handsets — the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro — and they are quite impressive. With machine learning and AI being at the core of their UI and assisted by the new super-powered Kirin 970 processor, the new Mates will probably have some secrets up their sleeves to show off.

The two handsets come in their own choices of screen ratio — 16:9 with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) pixel resolution on the Mate 10, and an 18:9 with a weird 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution on the Mate 10 Pro. In terms of hardware, they don't differ much, having a Kirin 970, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage on the inside, though, the Pro has a variant with 6 GB of RAM. Then again, the regular model has a microSD card slot and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, while the Pro doesn't. So, they even out, one might say.

Did you watch the reveal of the two new phones? We've also got our own hands-on coverage of both phones linked below. Do you like them?

This phone could be great...if we look from wrong angle. Lol S8 easily destroys this Samsung wannabe.

My question from the previous thread stands. If it can't be charged through the HDMI then it's a short term usage. Look at the other factors like being able to plug in normal pc peripherals. I get that you can use wireless peripherals but i think it's meant for slightly different usage. PS - I'm not defending DEX but thinking about it from how it might be used. I was thinking about using it in the office

Yes, anything better than Samsung is destroyed by Samsung. Good logic. I'm not saying it's better, but for you I will have to.

"I'm not saying it's better" Of course, it's not better. It's much BETTER! If you have guts, prove that this phone is better than my S8. You can't coz it's the undisputed claim.

I don't like Samsung...but I won't deny S8 is a great phone. BUT, i won't treat it like a God like you do.

#11 In his mind if it’s not Samsung then it’s trash. What an idiot.

Yes, I get that vibe every time I see/read his/her posts.

Actually in his mind, and the horde of trolls similar to him patrolling these tech sites, if it is not KOREAN, it is trash.

Not sure how you could "Nay" these. Aside from the head phone jack (Aargh!!), I can't find a reason not to like these devices especially the Pro. I can forgive the Headphone thing (Aarggh!!), but I can forgive them since most of the top dogs are now forcing this change upon us. Darn you apple, Motorola, and every other manufacturer that followed this unflattering trend in 2017... I know it will continue in 2018 so I'm just going to accept it and stop complaining. These devices, EMUI, the Processor, the Camera, the design, and Huawei all get a huge yes from me.

I can't forgive the lower resolution for the PRO version, does it make sense?

It's not like anyone can tell a difference between a 6-inch 1080p and 1440p screen without some seriously close peeping or magnifying glass anyway. It just takes more battery power and drives up the already insane flagship costs further.

It is $100 more expensive, at least they should have kept the resolution, regardless of the difference, in any case they should have made the non-pro version 1080p also. It is quite confusing. the PRO version has less features.

It's OLED instead of LCD, and with the new 2:1 aspect ratio. I imagine those panels are noticably more expensive than the old 16:9 LCD screens, regardless of resolution. Especially with the ongoing shortage. In addition you also get more storage and RAM as well as improved water- and dustproofing for the money.

Maybe that'll make it last longer on a single charge? It's like Huawei thinks better battery endurance is a Pro feature and QHD screen in a non-Pro?

You can decrease the resolution without having to change the screen, to save up battery.

Lol NOwei fanbase is in rampage mode just becos it get compared with my S8. Lol millions wrongs doesn't equal to one right. Your mouth piece can't change the fact that the S8 is far superior to this cheap wannabe. Grow up guys!

Looks like all Android phones are adopting the exact same design!

For me, the 10 Pro could have been great, but no SD Card and no 3.5 mm audio jack.

Can't get the 10 in the UK, and I really detest this fashion for tall thin phones and glass backs.

The Pro not being QHD is definitely a let down but oh well. Luckily my Mate 9 Pro can hold me over until next year. Once you go QHD OLED, you don't go back! ;)
