Huawei Mate 10 at a glance

What’s new about the Huawei Mate 10? Kirin 970 CPU with NPU, dual-lens Leica camera, enhanced Emotion UI.
How much does the Huawei Mate 10 cost? $899 outright.

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.

Design

  • Simple, stylish design.
  • Lacks water resistance.

Camera

  • Dual Leica lenses plus AI.

Performance

  • Kirin 970 delivers solid application performance.
  • Few apps take full advantage of the NPU.

Battery life

  • 4,000mAh battery.

Verdict

  • Worthwhile if you can get it at a bargain price.
