Huawei Mate 10

The good

  • Dual-lens camera with solid performance
  • Kirin 970 processor gives good performance
  • Attractive design

The bad

  • Few apps make use of the neural processor
  • Better features in the Mate 10 Pro

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.
