Huawei’s latest flagship smartphone – the P10 – is a testament to Huawei’s reputation as one of the leading smartphone manufacturer’s today, with an emphasis placed on design and photography. The P10 has received rave reviews from industry experts for its photography prowess and its flawless performance.
The Huawei P10 sports a stylish design as expected on a flagship smartphone but there are specific physical aspects that made the P10 stand out from its competitors. Firstly, Huawei decided to go out of the norm by moving the device’s accurate and responsive fingerprint scanner to the front (beneath the screen) compared to opting for the normal placement of under the rear cameras. Another tweak on the Huawei P10 that many experts and consumers welcomed was the addition of the latest Gorilla Glass 5 that increased the durability of the smartphone.
The processor and chipset on the Huawei P10 smartphone are the same as the larger Mate 9 and P10 Plus – featuring Huawei’s powerful Kirin 960 multi-core processor and supported by 4GB RAM. The smartphone’s GPU boasts a 180 percent increase in performance and a 40 percent improvement in power efficiency. This makes the P10 one of the most powerful phones on the market, boasting flawless overall performance and multi-tasking capabilities.
Huawei’s continuous partnership with camera experts Leica bore excellent results. The P10 is equipped with a 20MP monochrome sensor and a 12MP colour sensor, which can take photos with extra sharpness and clarity. With a variety of configurations available, users are also able to experiment with different shots and obtain DSLR-quality photos.
In terms of the software, the P10 runs on the latest Android 7.0 platform. Users are also treated to Huawei’s upgraded EMUI 5.1 which brings along with it additional UX improvements, performance optimization settings, and several new features such as the “Ultra Memory” optimization and Machine Learning to improve app usage. Security measures are also enhanced with an AVAST-based virus scanner, and built-in App Lock and File Safe settings to secure important files.
