Huawei has been making decent phones aggressively priced to challenge their direct Apple and Samsung-made rivals for many years now, but 2017's Mate 10 Pro
was arguably the company's first flagship device to prove equal or superior to the competition's then latest high-enders in almost every single way.
With a 6-inch OLED screen in tow that still looks amazing, being surrounded by impressively thin bezels and no distracting notch, as well as a powerful Kirin 970 processor under the hood, 6GB RAM, and a massive 4,000 mAh battery (even by today's standards), the Huawei Mate 10 Pro
was also the brand's last handset officially released through major US retailers
While Best Buy halted its sales
shortly after talks broke down with AT&T and Verizon
to carry the bad boy due to pressure from the US government, Newegg stuck with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, charging $800, then $650
, and finally, $400 at the time of this writing. Technically, the e-tailer still sells this classic mobile powerhouse for $430 and up through its official platform, using eBay to shave off an additional 30 bucks.
You can get the blazing fast handset in a Midnight Blue or Mocha Brown color option with a valid 12-month US warranty included and no catches or strings attached. You're obviously looking at brand-new, unused devices eligible for free nationwide shipping, as well as free 30-day returns, which you can activate on your GSM network of choice, be it AT&T, T-Mobile, or a smaller prepaid operator, with no restrictions whatsoever.
Huawei's in-house Kirin 970 SoC delivers similar raw speed as the Snapdragon 835 powering the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Note 8
or the LG V30
, which makes 400 bucks a very reasonable price to pay for the Mate 10
Pro today when also considering that aforementioned monster of a battery, two extremely capable Leica-enhanced rear-facing cameras, a premium water-resistant metal-and-glass build, and Android 9.0 Pie software
. You may want to hurry, though, as something about this sale suggests Newegg is looking to clear leftover inventory.
