The Huawei Mate 10 is a fine premium phone, although as the smaller sibling to the Mate 10 Pro, it's hard not to see it as a lesser handset.
While Huawei produces a significant quantity of budget and mid-range phones, it has two primary "premium" phone lines in the form of the fashion-led P series, typically announced at or around Mobile World Congress and the more phablet-formed Mate series, usually announced in the October/November timeframe.
Huawei also produces a Porsche Design version of the Mate 9, but that phone was not officially sold in Australia.
- Simple, stylish design.
- Lacks water resistance.
- Dual Leica lenses plus AI.
- Kirin 970 delivers solid application performance.
- Few apps take full advantage of the NPU.
- 4,000mAh battery.
- Worthwhile if you can get it at a bargain price.
