Huawei P10 Review Specs Pros and Cons

Huawei is one of the rare brands which manufactures their own Chipsets, and now for 2017, they have launched their flagship gadget Huawei P10. Let's have a look to analyze where it stand among highly competitive market in this Review about advantages and disadvantages. The main features it is offering are 5.1 inches Full HD Display, Android v7.0 (Nougat) OS, 20+12 MP Primary | 8 MP Secondary camera, 64 GB ROM | 256 GB Card Support, 4 GB RAM and 3200 mAh Battery.

Old But Still Looks Classy 
We have already seen many Bezel-free devices in 2017 so as compared to those devices Huawei P10 doesn't have an innovative craftsmanship, However, Dazzling blue & gold colors have a diamond texture carved onto the back with highly polished finish looks stunning. The screen has a uniform piece of glass indentation only at fingerprint sensor. The corners of phone are less square shaped more oval curve that makes it easy for gripping and softens the overall looks. It also observed that the back of phone is smudging to fingerprints and marks. You can find the power button and volume keys on the right edge, Card slot located on the left. The bottom has Type-C 1.0 reversible connector, 3.5 mm Audio jack and a speaker grille. 
Enough Clarity in 5.1' Display
Huawei sticks to Full HD 1080x1920p resolutions instead of going with 2K or 4K screen. It has 5.1 inches optimized LCD Display where I personally think that they have to choose AMOLED over IPS LCD. Meanwhile, the quality and colour balance of content looks sharp and vivid. We know that there are multiple phones in the market with better display configuration but believe that this phone has only 1080p resolution with 432 ppi density which is sufficiently pleasant to watch the pictures or videos. The maximum brightness can go up to the 600 nits so even in direct sunlight the legibility of phone is great. To prevent from some unwanted damage it also has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Dual (Monochrome + Colorful) Camera 
For the camera of this smartphone, Huawei incorporated with Leica. The Camera module is configured with Dual 20+12MP Camera with 3D facial detection, dynamic illumination, and natural portrait enhancements which offer artistic portrait photography. The camera also supports 2x Hybrid Zoom means, You can capture 2X closer photos without losing the quality. Even 8 MP front camera captures 2x more light is beneficial especially for night photography & it automatically switches to wide-angle shots when more people enter the picture. it supports “perfect selfie” mode which is a good tweak to improve the quality of overall selfie. 
Beast for Gaming 
The responsibility of Good performance is on the Shoulder of HiSilicon Kirin 960 which is manufactured by the Huawei, This CPU has 8 cores and from these 4 big 2.36 GHz Cortex-A73 cores are used for computation-intensive tasks such as gaming and 4 low powered 1.84GHz Cortex-A53 cores are used for less intensive tasks. This CPU is about 20-30% more efficient and 25% smaller than the previous version. Kirin 960 coupled with 4 GB RAM and ARM Mali-G71 MP8 GPU offering a highly efficient performance. All the games available in Play Store can be played on the phone without any hindrance. Huawei also introduced Machine learning "Ultra Memory technology" that intelligently allocates opens the frequently used apps faster than ever.

What's Different
Now the concept of Navigation bar completely changed, In the Fingerprint Scanner a swipe left or right opens the overview of recently used apps, a single tap used to .go back and a hold will take you to the home. In EMUI 5.1 Based on Android v7.0, you can manually control and balance the colours, it will also offer low-light comfort reading options.

Battery Backup
This handset comes up with the 3200 mAh battery which claims to provide about 18:00 hours talktime over 3G Network. It has Good Endurance rating and easily can offer a full day battery backup. However, the EMUI 5.1 has a feature for Power intensive apps - which tries to get you to disable apps from running in the background to save and improve the battery life.
