Huawei Honor View 10 review – affordable flagship features

In my Huawei Honor View 10 review I take a look at what the new AI processor delivers to the smartphone experience.

 

Huawei Honor View 10 Design

 

 

 

The 5.99-inchFullView Display has a high screen-to-body ratio and the longer and thinner 18:9 screen aspect ratio. This gives the phone an FHD+ resolution, which adds extra rows of pixels to give us 2160 x 1080 pixels.

 

Although the Huawei Honor View 10 has a bigger battery, compared to the Apple iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S8, it is much thinner than both of these smartphones.

 

The metal body is only 6.97mm thick and weighs in at 172g. The Honor View 10 is available in Navy Blue or Midnight Black

 

Huawei Honor View 10 Features

 

The AI chip is a Huawei made Kirin 970 AI octa-core 2.36GHz processor with 6GB RAM. The chip has an NPU (neural-network processing unit) that uses deep learning based on the user’s behaviour. The chip learns as you use the phone and optimises settings and apps accordingly.

 

 

 

This results in 25x the performance of a non-AI chip with 1/50 of the power consumption.

 

The display uses the AI function with Intelligent Display Rotation.The AI chip detects you and if you lay down on your side, the display won’t change to a landscape view. The display also uses Intelligent Screen On, the display does not turn off while you are looking at it.

 

There is a fingerprint sensor embedded under the front glass, the natural position and quick working sensor works well to unlock and the secure the phone.

 

The Huawei Honor View 10 runs Huawei’s EMUI 8 user interface, which enhances the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. Huawei has added features such as AI Smart Tips, landscape view dual-column scrolling and an AI Accelerated Translator for immediate photo and menu translation.

 

 

EMUI 8 also adds a twist to multitasking with Smart Split Screen. If you are, for example, watching a video and you receive a notification, then the phone will pro-actively switch to a split screen, so that you can reply or deal with your notification.

 

The 3,750mAh battery offers a good usage time with up to 160 hours of music playback or 21 hours of internet browsing.

 

With Honor SuperCharge you can get to 50% charge in just 30 minutes.

 

Huawei Honor View 10 Camera

 

 

The Huawei Honor View 10 has a dual camera, a 20-megapixel monochrome lens and a 16MP RGB lens. There are two independent Image Signal Processors, this makes the camera performance exceptional.

 

The AI chip works with the camera offering real-time scene and object recognition. The cameras recognise ten different types of objects and scenes including food, sunsets, snow, blue sky and beaches. The AI processor then adjusts the settings for you, giving you pro results without the need for pro mode.

 

 

AI Motion Detection readies the camera settings for motion and will predict how objects will move in the scene.

 

The 13MP selfie camera has an AI-powered Portrait Mode, this gives sharper portrait edges and more accurate background blur.

 

Verdict:

 

The AI processor works in numerous ways to make this phone one of the most impressive I have used. The camera captures amazing pictures, the AI processor makes it so easy to get the perfect shot. The amount of features and top technology in the Honor View 10 makes this a serious contender for the best smartphone of 2017.
