Huawei Honor V10 Review
Huawei Honor V10 has been unveiled and is a blend of the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. The Huawei sub-brand just launched the Honor V10, the new device looks different from what Honor typically offers. The company decided to move the fingerprint scanner to the front, disrupting a bezel-less display.
The Honor V10 is as powerful as the Mate 10 Pro, but unlike the expensive flagship, its cheaper with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Amazing right? Let’s take a look at the Honor V10 features
Huawei Honor V10 DESIGN
A state of the art device, Honor really went stylish with the design. It was mainly designed with aluminium and has an aluminium frame back. Created to stand out, the device can be used as a fashion statement. It has both front and back glass, providing durability and a worthy piece of art to cherish.
The device is just 7mm slim and weighs just 172g. Making it light and comfortable to hold. Honor made sure the device is available in an array of exquisite colours like Beach Gold, Aurora Blue, Charm Red and Night Black.
Huawei Honor V10 DISPLAY
It has no side bezels, but the display isn’t totally bezel-less. The physical home button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner is a huge turn off for me. The sensor should have been situated at the back of the Honor V10. The 6-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is like walking about with a little Smart TV in your hands.
You get to enjoy amazing visuals just like the display on the Mate 10 Pro. The display on the Honor V10 has a screen resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels with a pixel per inch density of 403. Even with the physical home button, Honor still achieved a 78.6% screen-to-body ratio. They could have achieved more than an 80% if only the fingerprint scanner was mounted at the back.
HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
Under the hood, it houses the same chipset on the almighty Mate 10 Pro. The Hisilicon Kirin 970 is not your ordinary chipset, its a beast. The powerful chipset clocks at 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 Octa-core processor. Getting a Mate 10 Pro performance at a cheaper price, couldn’t get any better.
It has a Mali-G72 MP12 graphics processing unit and a 6GB/4GB RAM variant. In terms of internal storage, there is also a 128GB/64GB variant, upgradeable with microSD, up to 256GB. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo OS with EMUI 8.0 skin on top.
The trending dual rear camera mounted on this device, made it a beauty to behold. The powerful 16MP (f/1.8) + 20MP cameras is every photographer’s dream. The cameras come with phase detection autofocus, LED flash, Geo-tagging, touch focus, face/smile detection, panorama and HDR. Videos are recorded at [email protected] using the Honor V10.
For selfies, it sports a single 13MP front camera which opens at f/2.0 aperture and captures beautiful selfies.
The Huawei Honor V10 is powered by a 3750mAh Non-removable battery, with 4.5V/5A fast charging feature. You can boost the Honor V10 from 0% to 58% in just 30 minutes, thanks to the feature.
