Huawei P10 Review

The 3-Minute Huawei P10 Review

Nothing wrong, but nothing groundbreaking

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4/5 ● Value: 3.5/5

The Best:

The Huawei P10 packs an outstanding camera and excellent display into a sleek body. Huawei's EMUI software add-ons give the phone some useful extra features while the battery will last you most of the day.

The Bugs:

The P10's confusing fingerprint sensor touch navigation system, complicated camera app, and lack of dust and water resistance aren't the best. After you take that into account, its price tag makes it a touch expensive in our opinion.

Is it for you?

Featuring a slightly smaller screen, dual camera setup, new chipset, front-mounted fingerprint scanner, and bigger battery, the Huawei P10 aims to blur the difference between itself and the company’s flagship Mate series. The Huawei P10 is for people who want to take great pictures while on the go, but don’t want to worry about running out of battery.

“If you had to imagine the perfect follow-up to Huawei’s P9, we’re not sure if the P10 would be it.”

Meet the Huawei P10

Following in the footsteps of the successful P9, Huawei’s P10 was released this February. Relatively small for a flagship phone, the P10 still packs some power. When you consider the great camera and solid battery life, it becomes an intriguing option. But how does it stack up against the big names like Apple and Samsung?

What we like

The Huawei P10 does its best to improve upon its predecessor, the P9. One of its best points is its camera. The dual camera setup allows you to add very cool bokeh effects, meaning that you can focus on a specific person or item while blurring the background, and with a 20MP monochrome sensor, you no longer need to add black and white filters to your Instagrams or Snaps. If you want to record your friend’s birthday party or your child’s school play, the Huawei P10 takes amazing high-quality 4K video.

The P10’s Emotion UI (EMUI) is another area where it shines. Huawei has added some useful features to the OS, like a blue light filter, app lock, and more, to help you take advantage of all the phone’s features.

What we don’t like

One of the best things about the P10, the camera, is hard to use to its full potential thanks to a confusing camera app. Be warned, if you want to get the most of the camera you should already have some knowledge about photography or be prepared to spend some time fiddling around with it.

Another issue is the new gesture navigation system on the fingerprint scanner. It’s really confusing to use. For example, if you touch the fingerprint sensor for more than a fraction of a second, the phone exits the app instead of going back to the last menu. You can turn the gesture navigation off and use the on-screen navigation keys, but these keys are easy to miss and take up valuable screen space.

Should you buy it?

If you had to imagine the perfect follow-up to Huawei’s P9, we’re not sure if the P10 would be it. Yes, it’s powerful. It can easily handle you playing N.O.V.A 3, then quickly switching to your Whatsapp conversation with your friends. The battery is good. It will last you the entire day, even if you play games and use apps like Facebook and YouTube. Once again, the camera is fantastic. Don’t get us wrong, it’s a good phone. However, it lacks the “wow” factor you get with the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6. Huawei P9 users should especially think twice before investing in the P10. It isn’t much of an upgrade from the previous model.

Who is this phone for? If you take a lot of photos and love the look of the iPhone 7, but don’t want to stray away from Android, the Huawei P10 is worth a look.
