Honor View 10 Malaysia Review – Top-End Features at Mid-Range Price
If you are reluctant to spend a fortune on top-end smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Huawei Mate 10, an alternative that you can consider is the Honor View 10 from Huawei. Despite only costing half the price of an iPhone X, this Huawei smartphone still offers commendable features that make it stand on par with many flagships available on the market today. Below is a rundown of the Honor View 10 features.
Design and Build
From the front, the Honor View 10 looks like its late 2017/early 2018 counterparts, featuring thin bezels around the screen to fit in the near 6-inch display panel while maintaining a svelte and pocket-sized build. However, instead of having a glass back, Huawei has opted to fit the Honor View 10 with an aluminium rear. Measuring only 7mm in thickness, the phone is one of the thinnest devices on the market today, which makes it easy to pop into the pocket and brought around anywhere without much hassle.
The Honor View provides generous screen real-estate with its 5.99-inch IPS LCD display panel with 1,080 x 2,160p resolution, making the phone a darling for individuals who enjoy gaming or other forms of multimedia on their smartphones. Colours are punchy and details are sharp, which is a positive value for a smartphone without an OLED screen. The display is also pleasantly bright which means that you would not struggle to see the screen under bright sunlight.
The Honor View 10 also has a strong set of internals that enables it to deliver stable, uninterrupted performance. The phone comes with a Kirin 970 octa-core processor that is supported by 6GB of RAM and an embedded neural processing unit for the phone’s built-in AI capabilities. This combination of specs means that the View 10 phone breezes through whatever you throw at it with no delay or drop in performance, be it intensive gaming or heavy multi-tasking. The phone also comes with 128GB-worth of storage on board which should be more than sufficient for all your apps and games.
The AI features available on the Honor 10 View makes it an even more desirable for many. The phone’s camera can automatically detect what you are taking a picture of and adjust its settings accordingly, ensuring that you get picture-perfect photos that you can upload to your social media accounts with little or no editing required.
What impresses more is the built-in translator app that may potentially make the device a must-have companion for frequent travellers and individuals who travel to foreign countries often. Not only is the app capable of translating text from a photo, it can also translate real-time conversations from more than 60 languages.
Unsurprisingly, Huawei has decided to jump on the bandwagon and equip the View 10 with dual rear cameras, comprising of a 20MP monochrome lens and a 16MP RGB lens, both coming with f/1.8 apertures. The cameras work together well to produce detailed photos in all lighting conditions.
