Its 5.99in 18:9 full HD+ screen dominates with a small oval fingerprint sensor at the bottom and the spear and front-facing camera at the top.<br> It’s not quite symmetrical, but close enough to be unnoticeable at a glance, while the bezels at the side are super slim. It comes in a fetching blue colour, with an all-metal body and glass front. The rounded sides and corners feel great, while build quality is top-notch. The back is pretty plain, just with a subtle Honor logo, antenna bands at the top and bottom and the two cameras sticking out the back. </p> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/2018050612154148.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View is neither attractive nor ugly – it’s got a minimalist utilitarian vibe about it. At 7mm thick and 75mm wide, the 10 View is pretty compact for a phone with such a large screen. It’s 0.9mm thinner than Huawei’s other 6in smartphone, the Mate 10 Pro, as well as Google’s Pixel 2 XL, and 1.1mm thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S8+. It also stacks up well against its closest competitor, the OnePlus 5T, which is 0.3mm thicker, slightly shorter and 10g lighter – but it’s all much of a muchness. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The screen is the star of the show, and is good looking. The stretched 18:9 full HD+ LCD won’t beat any of the top OLED displays from Samsung or Apple, but it’s really not that far off with good viewing angles, brightness and colour, meaning you have to spend a lot more money to get something noticeably better. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The screen is the star of the show, and is good looking.

It was very snappy in day-to-day usage, and promises to get better the more you use it with built-in machine learning that can predict what you want when you want it and pre-load the app. Huawei also promises that the 10 View will run as fast in a year as it does on day one, which has proved the case with some other Huawei devices.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The small oval fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate. Some could find it a bit of a stretch to hit it with their thumb while holding the phone securely where they can reach most of the screen, but it comes down to personal preference.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> EMUI 8</p> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/2018050612175162.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View runs the same modified version of Android 8 Oreo, called EMUI 8, as the Mate 10 Pro, with the same features, power-saving modes and odd quirks. Some will hate it compared to unmodified Android, but most will like it. For more information on EMUI 8, see the Mate 10 Pro review.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Cameras</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506121845212.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The 10 View has one of Huawei’s dual camera systems on the back, with one colour 16-megapixel and one monochrome 20-megapixel, combining to produce some interesting shots and modes. They can be used together for improved detail and light levels in images, to produce a hybrid digital zoom, while the monochrome sensor can be used on its own for some really sharp-looking images. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The camera app is generally good, but there’s no true automatic HDR mode as has become the norm with other devices. It produces good-looking images with solid detail and colour reproduction. Overall they’re not quite as good as the top-end competition such as the Pixel 2 XL or iPhone X, particularly in low-light, but the camera is great for the money. The 13-megapixel selfie camera is equally good, but struggled more than most with direct backlighting. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Observations</p> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506121934694.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The phone comes with a screen protector pre-installed.The camera lump on the back makes the phone rock when used on a desk or table The Honor 10 View is not water resistant at all You can have two sims in the phone or one sim and a microSD card, but not two sims and a microSD card The metal back is surprisingly good at attracting fingerprints </p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Price</h4> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View costs £450. For comparison, the OnePlus 5T costs £449 with 64GB of storage, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro costs £699 with 128GB, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ costs £779 with 64GB, the Google Pixel 2 XL costs £799 with 64GB and the iPhone X costs £999 with 64GB of storage.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Verdict</h4> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View takes the absolute best bits of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and shoves them into a simpler, cheaper frame creating a mid-range king. <br> If real, two-day battery life wasn’t enough, the 10 View has snappy performance, a great fingerprint scanner, double the storage of the competition, dual-sim support, expandable storage and even has a headphones socket. The big screen is good, so is the camera, but while neither are quite in the same league as the very best smartphones on the market, most users are unlikely to care. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It’s not the most attractive smartphone on the market and you can certainly find cheaper with a similar feature set, but none of them are quite as good a package for the money. You have to spend an awful lot more to find a better smartphone than the Honor 10 View. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_source"> <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/feb/09/honor-10-view-review-price--top-smartphone-with-two-day-battery-life">Source: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018 </a> </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="med_rev_tile"> <div class="med_rev_all_tile med_normal_tile"> <div class="med_rev_tile_img_sec"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180504150658382.jpg " style="width:120px; height:72px;" class="med_rev_tile_img" alt="rev_logo" /></div> <div class="med_rev_tile_content"> <p class="rev_med_tile_source">Source: <span class="rev_med_tile_source_title">Stuff , </span> 08 JANUARY 2018</p> <h4 class="rev_med_tile_title">Honor View 10 </h4> <p class="rev_med_tile_content">Honor View 10 review AI-assisted selfies hit the mid-range </p> <p class="rev_read_more">Read more <span class="rev_read_more_icn icon_next_page"></span></p> </div> </div> <div class="med_rev_tile_popup" style="display:none;"> <div class="med_rev_popup_content"> <div class="med_rev_popup_head"> <div class="med_rev_popup_img_sec"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180504150658382.jpg " style="width:120px; height:72px;" class="med_rev_popup_img" alt="rev_logo" /></div> <div class="med_popup_head_content"> <p class="rev_med_tile_source">Source: <span class="rev_med_tile_source_title">Stuff , </span> 08 JANUARY 2018 </p> </div> </div> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont"> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Honor View 10 review AI-assisted selfies hit the mid-range</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_text"> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Think of some great rivalries. Rangers vs Celtic. DC vs Marvel comes to mind. Even Kevin from Home Alone had those two wacky robbers.It’s probably about time you added Honor and OnePlus to that list. Here are two companies that just can’t seem to stop butting heads over who has the best flagship-besting smartphone. It happened with the OnePlus 5 and Honor 9 last summer, and it’s happening again now. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The View10 is a top-spec handset that wouldn't look out of place alongside big-name rivals like Samsung's Galaxy S8, thanks to a frame-filling 18:9 aspect screen and skinny bezels - only here, you don't need to contemplate selling a kidney to afford one.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Think of it as a Mate 10 or Mate 10 Pro, only made of metal instead of glass. And a heck of a lot less expensive. It's even packing the same AI-boosted dual camera cleverness we saw in Huawei's most recent flagships. And with a OnePlus 5T-matching price, it’s never been harder to pick a winner.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">DESIGN & BUILD: TRUE BLUE</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/2018050612202203.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The View 10 is massive - but it doesn't feel overly unwieldy in your hands thanks to those skinny screen bezels. There's still room at the bottom of the phone for a fingerprint sensor, but seeing how the rest of Honor's line-up shifts the sensor to the back, it's a bit odd having it up front here.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> With glass seemingly reserved for Huawei’s more expensive Mate series , the View 10's metal body sits squarely up against the OnePlus 5T. Which one you think looks better will fall down to how much you like the colour blue, whether a front-facing finger scanner is a big deal, and whether you like the OnePlus mute slider or not.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It's a tough call, especially with both phones costing exactly the same cash, but the Honor does feel undeniably heftier in your hand. The 5T has curvier edges that more comfortably sit in your palm, and is ever-so-slightly smaller overall.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It was never going to be as eye-catching as the all-glass Honor 9, but the metal build will at least survive a few knocks and bumps - especially with each corner cushioned to resist impacts. We'd still feel happier slapping a case on one before sliding it into a pocket, though.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The twin camera lenses around back are practically an Honor trademark now, with nothing else to distract you from the monolithic metal design, but not everyone is going to like the way they poke out of the chassis. It's harder to complain about the headphone jack, seeing as you actually get one. There'll be no dongle dalliances here.<br> </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> SCREEN & SOUND: BIG AND BRIGHT</p> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122059271.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Keeping the fingerprint sensor up front means there’s ‘only’ room for a 5.99in display, whereas the OnePlus 5T (with its sensor on the back) finds space for a 6.01in panel. Not that you’d spot the difference without whipping out a ruler.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> There are more than enough pixels here to make your photos look great, if not quite on par with more expensive QHD flagships. You get a 2160x1080 resolution screen, so basically Full HD plus a few extra pixels to fill up the 18:9 aspect ratio. It's the in thing right now, and any phone that launches with old-school 16:9 is going to feel almost instantly out of date.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Look at the spec sheet and you’ll see size isn’t the only difference: OnePlus has opted for AMOLED, but Honor has stuck with an LCD panel. As a result, the View 10 can’t quite match the 5T’s excellent contrast and deep, inky blacks, with dark video scenes lacking a bit of depth.<br> However, the View 10 does have impressively white whites, and ample brightness. Crank this up and you'll have no trouble seeing what's onscreen while you're outdoors.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Colours look vibrant enough, and there's plenty of detail in still images. Viewing angles are absolutely on point, too. You’ll have to spend a healthy chunk of change more to get a significantly better panel.<br> The speaker is loud enough, but there’s only one of them - the earpiece microphone doesn’t double as a second driver. That makes it all too easy to muffle your audio if you’re not careful how you hold the phone.<br> You can even pair up in sync with other View 10s, using NFC to turn a handful of handsets into a distributed speaker network. Handy if you're ever in the same room as a load of other Honor phone owners. And you all want to listen to the same song. Sure, it’s a novelty, but you never know, right?</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">CAMERA: AI OF THE TIGER</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122143273.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> You won't find any Leica logos like you might on Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro, and expensive extras like optical image stabilisation have been ditched to keep the price low - but that doesn’t stop the View 10 from being a potent snapper. </p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It has the same 16MP+20MP dual camera setup you'll find on Huawei's latest phones, with the main sensor shooting in full colour and the secondary one sticking to monochrome to boost details and help out at night.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Feed it enough light and the View 10 can take some excellent shots, with ample detail and great exposure balance. Things can look a little washed out in places, and it does tend to over-expose skies unless you tweak things manually, but the results are a step above the OnePlus 5T. There’s still no auto HDR mode, though, leaving you to force it on in the settings.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Phase-detect autofocus is fairly quick to acquire targets, and the f/1.8 aperture is wide enough to get lots of light onto the sensor whenever you tap the shutter button. At night, things get noticeably grainier, with details dropping off and the LED flash only going to far to help, but it still has the edge over similarly priced phones.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The dual sensor setup gives you lossless 2x zoom, as well as depth-sensing for portrait shots with dreamy bokeh blur - but you’ve seen all that before. The big new addition is AI scene recognition, which works in exactly the same way as it does on the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Stick the camera in Auto mode, point it at one of the supported scenes and it'll automatically tweak the settings to suit whatever you're snapping. Cats and dogs are high up the list, along with group selfies and theatres - although anyone taking photos in a theatre deserves a plague o' both their houses. Assuming they can afford two houses, of course.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It’s tough to tell if this recognition genuinely improves your photos, but the detection is quick - and the tech has plenty of other uses.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">SOFTWARE & OS: SMARTEN UP</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122228958.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The neural processing unit, a dedicated bit of silicon that works with the View 10’s AI brain, spends most of its time keeping an eye on which apps you’re using, closing ones you aren’t and prioritising features so they’re always quick.<br> It’s the kind of tech that takes time to learn how you use your phone, and we haven’t had a handset long enough for it to get a proper idea of how we work, so it’s tough to say if this makes a difference - right now, we’d take Honor’s claim with a pinch of salt.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The one thing we can’t argue with is the pre-loaded Translator app, which was developed by Microsoft to specifically use the NPU for speedy translations of foreign language text. Point the camera at a menu and it’ll automatically translate the words onscreen - it worked perfectly on a German restaurant menu, and managed it in one of South London’s numerous oriental supermarkets too.<br> Beyond AI, the View 10 runs Android Oreo, with icons and a UI that’s almost identical to the Mate 10. Honor uses the same EMUI 8 skin as Huawei, which while not as overbearing as it used to be, still shifts a few things around like the notification tray, Settings screen and app icons.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It’s different enough to vanilla Android that it might confuse anyone coming from a Pixel or OnePlus handset, but after a few hours you’ll work out the minor visual differences.<br> You’ll spend longer working out which of the numerous pre-installed apps you’ll actually want to use, but at least you won’t run out of space for your own: the View 10 has 128GB of on-board storage. There's even a microSD card slot in case you need more space later, although that'll mean giving up the second SIM card slot.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> One final hidden extra is facial recognition - sort of. There’s no fancy feature-mapping like FaceID on an iPhone X, or even face unlock like the OnePlus 5T, but the phone can display more detailed notifications when it picks up your face. You’ve still got to tap in your passcode or hold a finger on the scanner to actually get past the lockscreen, though.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">PERFORMANCE & BATTERY LIFE: PLENTY OF POWER</h4> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> All those AI smarts come courtesy of parent company Huawei's Kirin 970 CPU. Even without the dedicated NPU, the chip is ridiculously quick, making Android 8 Oreo feel super smooth - especially when paired with 6GB of RAM, which really helps out when you're running two apps side-by-side.<br> Games like Modern Combat VS, which have been optimised for the 18:9 aspect screen, barely drop a frame, and there was no stutter or lag on show in any of the games we tried.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The resolution helps here, because the chip isn’t working overtime to push more pixels than you can see. Regular apps feel silky smooth, too.<br> Battery life is simply average, rather than anything outstanding. The 3750mAh cell might be bigger than most, but it’s only good for a full day of use between charges.<br> t's a shame you don't get the same 4000mAh battery as the more expensive Mate 10 Pro here, but fast-charging over USB-C should mean you aren't waiting around forever to top up - even if the OnePlus 5T is faster with its proprietary Dash Charge.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">HONOR VIEW 10 VERDICT</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122308741.jpg " class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Just like every other Honor phone, there’s no denying the View 10’s sheer value. It takes all the best bits of parent company Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro and packages them together for significantly less cash.<br> A smaller battery and a slightly simpler camera seem like small sacrifices to make when everything else stacks up so well.<br> OK, it can’t quite match the bargain basement price of the Honor 9, and sadly loses out on the gorgeous glass finish, but makes up for it with the in-demand 18:9 screen and thin bezels that we all want from our phones right now.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The only problem? The OnePlus 5T. The Honor has a better camera and expandable storage, but the 5T has a slicker version of Android, better battery, and AMOLED screen. Oh, and face unlock that actually, y’know, unlocks your phone.<br> Which one is best for you depends on what you’ll be using your phone for: die-hard Android fans will prefer a stock experience with OnePlus, but photographers are better off with the View 10.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_source"> <a href="https://www.stuff.tv/honor/view-10/review ">Source: https://www.stuff.tv/honor/view-10/review </a> </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="med_rev_tile"> <div class="med_rev_all_tile med_normal_tile"> <div class="med_rev_tile_img_sec"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506120902767.jpg " style="width:120px; height:72px;" class="med_rev_tile_img" alt="rev_logo" /></div> <div class="med_rev_tile_content"> <p class="rev_med_tile_source">Source: <span class="rev_med_tile_source_title">T3 Smart Living , </span> JANUARY 16, 2018 </p> <h4 class="rev_med_tile_title">Honor View 10 review </h4> <p class="rev_med_tile_content"> Honor View 10 review: a worthy new challenger slugs it out with the OnePlus 5T</p> <p class="rev_read_more">Read more <span class="rev_read_more_icn icon_next_page"></span></p> </div> </div> <div class="med_rev_tile_popup" style="display:none;"> <div class="med_rev_popup_content"> <div class="med_rev_popup_head"> <div class="med_rev_popup_img_sec"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506120902767.jpg" style="width:120px; height:72px;" class="med_rev_popup_img" alt="rev_logo" /></div> <div class="med_popup_head_content"> <p class="rev_med_tile_source">Source: <span class="rev_med_tile_source_title">T3 Smart Living , </span> JANUARY 16, 2018 </p> </div> </div> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont"> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Honor View 10 review: a worthy new challenger slugs it out with the OnePlus 5T</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_text"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122407388.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Since November last year the OnePlus 5T has ruled over the mid-range phone market largely unchallenged.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Its great screen, affordable price point, and premium design and features made it an absolute no-brainer if you weren't shopping with a flagship-level budget, and while other devices like the Honor 9 beat it on price, or on specific functions (like the ZenFone 4's excellent image-taking capabilities), they didn't offer the same level of holistic package.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Fast forward to January 2018 and, finally, a worthy rival has emerged: the Honor View 10. And, as well as largely matching the specs and functionality of the OnePlus 5T, the Honor View 10 also brings some on-trend, flagship-level boons to the fight as well. Can the Honor View 10 take down the OnePlus 5T? Read on to find out.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">HONOR VIEW 10 REVIEW: DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY</h4> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The first thing that strikes you when you take the Honor View 10 out of the box is how thin it is. At just 7mm thick the phone is slimmer than both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8, and makes the lightweight device feel very lithe in the hand. The only thing that interrupts the general skimpiness of form-factor is the phone's two protruding rear cameras. <br> The Honor View 10 is available in Navy Blue (the model reviewed) and Midnight Black. The phone features an aluminium rather than glass back, which we are fine with even though it doesn't deliver any wow-factor, and the sides of the device are nicely bevelled, too. The screen surround is also very slimline, which helps to emphasis the size of the 5.99-inch screen.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> Just like the Honor 9, which T3 thought was fabulous value on review, the Honor View 10's fingerprint sensor is located on the front-bottom of the phone. And, slightly oddly, the phone also doesn't come with an official water resistance rating, just like the Huawei Mate 10. We're guessing that there is some degree of water resistance, but it's slightly disconcerting nonetheless. Lastly, unlike many high-end flagship phones today, the Honor View 10 does come with a headphone jack.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">HONOR VIEW 10 REVIEW: SCREEN AND PERFORMANCE</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122450889.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor View 10 is equipped with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD screen, which boasts the on-trend ultra-wide 18:9 aspect ratio. The resolution is Full HD, which at 18:9 means 1080 x 2160, and is very similar to that on the OnePlus 5T asides from the fact that the latter has an OLED screen. This difference in screen tech means that the Honor View 10's screen looks slightly sharper to the eye than the OnePlus 5T, but doesn't quite match its colour and contrast. </p> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122549553.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View is neither attractive nor ugly – it’s got a minimalist utilitarian vibe about it. At 7mm thick and 75mm wide, the 10 View is pretty compact for a phone with such a large screen. It’s 0.9mm thinner than Huawei’s other 6in smartphone, the Mate 10 Pro, as well as Google’s Pixel 2 XL, and 1.1mm thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S8+. It also stacks up well against its closest competitor, the OnePlus 5T, which is 0.3mm thicker, slightly shorter and 10g lighter – but it’s all much of a muchness. <br> <br> The screen is the star of the show, and is good looking. The stretched 18:9 full HD+ LCD won’t beat any of the top OLED displays from Samsung or Apple, but it’s really not that far off with good viewing angles, brightness and colour, meaning you have to spend a lot more money to get something noticeably better.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The screen is the star of the show, and is good looking.

It was very snappy in day-to-day usage, and promises to get better the more you use it with built-in machine learning that can predict what you want when you want it and pre-load the app. Huawei also promises that the 10 View will run as fast in a year as it does on day one, which has proved the case with some other Huawei devices.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The small oval fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate. Some could find it a bit of a stretch to hit it with their thumb while holding the phone securely where they can reach most of the screen, but it comes down to personal preference.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">EMUI 8</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122707136.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View runs the same modified version of Android 8 Oreo, called EMUI 8, as the Mate 10 Pro, with the same features, power-saving modes and odd quirks. Some will hate it compared to unmodified Android, but most will like it. For more information on EMUI 8, see the Mate 10 Pro review.</h4> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Cameras</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122746169.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The 10 View has one of Huawei’s dual camera systems on the back, with one colour 16-megapixel and one monochrome 20-megapixel, combining to produce some interesting shots and modes. They can be used together for improved detail and light levels in images, to produce a hybrid digital zoom, while the monochrome sensor can be used on its own for some really sharp-looking images.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The camera app is generally good, but there’s no true automatic HDR mode as has become the norm with other devices. It produces good-looking images with solid detail and colour reproduction. Overall they’re not quite as good as the top-end competition such as the Pixel 2 XL or iPhone X, particularly in low-light, but the camera is great for the money.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The 13-megapixel selfie camera is equally good, but struggled more than most with direct backlighting.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Observations</h4> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_imgsec"> <div class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_main_img"> <img src="https://cdn-ukcname.hihonor.com/pms/template/content/2018/20180506122823877.jpg" class="med_rev_popup_img" style="width:458px; height:232px" alt="rev_logo" /> </div> </div> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The phone comes with a screen protector pre-installed <br> The camera lump on the back makes the phone rock when used on a desk or table The Honor 10 View is not water resistant at all <br> You can have two sims in the phone or one sim and a microSD card, but not two sims and a microSD card <br> The metal back is surprisingly good at attracting fingerprints</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Price</h4> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View costs £450. For comparison, the OnePlus 5T costs £449 with 64GB of storage, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro costs £699 with 128GB, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ costs £779 with 64GB, the Google Pixel 2 XL costs £799 with 64GB and the iPhone X costs £999 with 64GB of storage.</p> <h4 class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_head">Verdict</h4> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> The Honor 10 View takes the absolute best bits of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and shoves them into a simpler, cheaper frame creating a mid-range king.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> If real, two-day battery life wasn’t enough, the 10 View has snappy performance, a great fingerprint scanner, double the storage of the competition, dual-sim support, expandable storage and even has a headphones socket. The big screen is good, so is the camera, but while neither are quite in the same league as the very best smartphones on the market, most users are unlikely to care.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_main_cont_para"> It’s not the most attractive smartphone on the market and you can certainly find cheaper with a similar feature set, but none of them are quite as good a package for the money. You have to spend an awful lot more to find a better smartphone than the Honor 10 View.</p> <p class="med_rev_popup_source"> <a href="https://www.t3.com/reviews/honor-view-10-review">Source: https://www.t3.com/reviews/honor-view-10 </a> </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
