Huawei’s P10 proves that you can deliver a premium phone experience for well under $1,000.

The good

  • Good performance
  • Clever fingerprint sensor
  • Competitive pricing

The could-be-better

  • Limited colour choices for Australia
  • No water-resistance rating
  • Only a full HD display

Huawei has priced the P10 to sell, but that doesn’t mean it has skimped on either features or style.

Huawei’s 2016 P9 handset was something of a surprise to the mobile market because while it combined a dash of premium style with lenses co-developed by Leica, the Chinese company didn’t charge you a fortune if you wanted to own it.

Huawei followed up the P9 with the much larger Huawei Mate 9 before launching the Huawei P10 at 2017's Mobile World Congress, alongside the P10 Plus and Huawei Watch 2. It’s a slightly more expensive prospect than the P9 was, with more of a focus on style but Huawei has largely made improvements in the P10 that make it a very compelling handset.

Design

  • A refreshingly-compact design that doesn't compromise on quality
  • Takes a lot of inspiration from Samsung and Apple, but that's a good thing

Camera

  • Improves on the already impressive camera of the Huawei P9
  • Best suited to portrait photography rather than landscape shots

Performance

  • Snappy and responsive, with similar performance to 2017's most powerful premium smartphones
  • Huawei's memory management tools promise consistent performance over the long term

Battery life

  • Surprisingly long-lasting for a 3,200mAh battery in such a powerful smartphone
  • Easy all-day battery, plus quick charge capabilities

Verdict

  • An excellent compact smartphone that doesn't skimp on quality or performance
