Evaporating side bezel is a new trend that all big brands of the smartphone market are taking up. But if you remember well, before this trend really went hot with big brothers, Huawei was the brand who almost made this happen with its ambitious Mate series. Now with the new Mate 10, this ambition of unleashing an all-screen phone came to fruition. Huawei Mate 10 with its zero bezel look and the glossy screen seems to be one of the best-looking smartphones in the world now. But it is not just about look; there are too many other attributes that make this a truly awesome phone.
Design And Display
The sleek and sturdy mix of glass and metal give this phone a kind of sophistication and appeal that you cannot find in too many high-end phones around. The phone comes with a curved Gorilla Glass back panel, and it combines with a metal frame giving the device a sleek and rich feel in the hands of the user.
The best thing is, with a smaller footprint compared to the iPhone 8 Plus it offers a larger 6-inch screen while the iPhone 8 Plus settles for the only 5.5-inch screen. Moreover, like all cutting-edge smartphones like iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8, the aspect ratio of the device screen is really ultra-wide maintaining 18:9 aspect ratio.
Now when you come to display, the OLED technology coupled with HDR10 support offers a stunning display which is crispier and sharper than the Google Pixel 2 XL.
Though the display seems still a bit less satisfactory when compared to the full resolution performance of Note 8 or iPhone X, it is still worth contending among the top candidates in the smartphone market. The device also comes preloaded with a screen protector, and there is also a soft plastic case in the box helping you protect the device without any extra investment.
Having loaded a 4,000mAh of battery Huawei Mate 10 Pro offers the optimum battery power. The battery will charge faster and coupled up with software optimisation will run longer by preventing third-party app taking a toll on the battery power. As testing of the device revealed, even continuous browsing and video watching do not prevent the device from running with a single charge for as long as a full day. The battery gets 60% charged with just 15 minutes of charging.
The device comes with a really advanced point and shoot camera. There are two different cameras in the back of the device with two set of features. The first one comes with a 12MP color (RGB) sensor equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS). The other camera comes with a 20MP black and white (monochrome) sensor without any optical image stabilization. The real improvement of the camera lies in the addition of f/1.6 aperture lenses for both cameras. These wider apertures make this an ideal phone for photography in low-light performance.
Performance + AI
What would be most praiseworthy about the device except its flashy look and feel and crisp display and image quality is its performance boosting mechanism thanks to the AI power. Artificial Intelligence plays an active role in the Huawei Mate 10 pro rather than just being an advertising.
Huawei unlike many smartphone manufacturers in the market produces its own processors designed expressly for its phones. The latest in their lineup of custom designed processors is the Kirin 970 which is an eight-core chip which much in the fashion of Apple’s A11 Bionic processor can handle tasks such as voice recognition, natural language processing and image classification without taking help from web servers. That really translates to faster responses from the device for many day to day use situations.
From the above-mentioned features and capabilities, it is clear that Huawei Mate 10 is all set to carve a niche place in the smartphone market. Whether you consider its exclusive glass and metal design sophistication or take it’s awesome dual cameras or take its advanced AI-powered chipset, it stands to appeal on many counts. For the first time, it seems the big names in smartphones really face a challenge from a comparatively smaller brand. That’s actually good for the consumers.
