Honor 10 Review

Huawei's sub-image Honor has as of late propelled the Honor 10 in India. Man-made consciousness is the most smoking advertising trendy expression at the present time, and Honor cases to have fused AI highlights into relatively every part of the Honor 10 - from shrewd scene identification and face acknowledgment in the camera application to UI upgrades in its custom skin, EMUI 8.1. 

With a glass and metal body, the most recent adaptation of Android out of the container, double back cameras, a 19:9 show, and a processor with committed AI equipment, the Honor 10 sounds extraordinarily encouraging on paper. Estimated at Rs. 32,999, this cell phone additionally marginally undermines the much-built up OnePlus 6 (Review) as far as cost. Is the Honor 10 worth purchasing? We discovered in our full audit.

Honor 10 design

The Honor 10 has a 2.5D bent glass back and a very cleaned metal mid-outline for unbending nature, influencing it to manage some similarity to the iPhone X. The shiny glass back looks and feels premium, however, is tricky and gets smirched effortlessly. Regardless of having a glass back, there is no remote charging, which appears a missed opportunity. 

The Honor 10 has insignificant screen fringes and a great 86.2 percent screen-to-body proportion. Thus, it looks smooth and is very smaller and pocketable. It is likewise simple to hold in one hand on account of the bent glass back, adjusted corners, and bent edges. 

The intent is quick getting to be a standout amongst the most polarizing components of cell phone outline. The Honor 10 grasps this pattern head-on and has a score at the highest point of the show. Gratefully, it's is very little and can be concealed by means of a choice in the settings menu. 

This cell phone is accessible in two hues in India, Midnight Back, and Phantom Blue. The Blue variation looks very awesome and has a glass back that reflects light when you turn it in your grasp. This choice unquestionably has a ton of outline energy, however, we investigated the dark variation which looks considerably more downplayed. 

With a specific end goal to oblige negligible screen outskirts and edge-to-edge shows, most cell phone producers have needed to move the unique finger impression sensor to the backboard. The Honor 10's unique mark sensor anyway is still beneath the screen, however, inserted into the glass board itself. Respect has utilized Qualcomm's ultrasonic unique finger impression innovation for biometric verification. The sensor looks very advanced yet is difficult to reach with one hand, and is likewise moderate and incorrect. The setup procedure likewise took far longer than we are utilized to. 

The power and volume catches are situated on the privilege of the gadget and are a touch too little for our loving. The left edge is desolate put something aside for the SIM plate which has two Nano-SIM openings. The Honor 10 has a USB Type-C port at the base flanked by a 3.5mm earphone jack and a speaker which is boisterous yet twists at full volume. 

Manufacture quality is great, and the telephone feels strong and equipped for taking a drop or two in its walk. We dropped the telephone a few times amid our survey period and separated from a couple of scratches all over, it was solid. At 7.7mm, the Honor 10 isn't the most slender around, however it measures a sensible 153g. 

Honor 10 specifications and display

The Honor 10 is fueled by Huawei's own particular HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor, which has been utilized as a part of a few premium models in the ongoing past, for example, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Huawei P20 Pro, and Honor View 10. The Kirin 970 has a devoted subsystem, named the Neural Processing Unit, to deal with man-made reasoning calculations. This guarantees better protection and execution as AI calculations can occur on the telephone itself and information doesn't should be transferred to the cloud. 

The Honor 10 has 6GB of RAM, a non-removable 3,400mAh battery, and 128GB of capacity which can't be extended. Availability alternatives incorporate Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, GLONASS, NFC, 4G VoLTE, a USB Type-C port (USB 2.0 speed), and a 3.5mm earphone jack. The cell phone additionally has an advanced compass, encompassing light sensor, gravity sensor, spinner, and Hall sensor. It bolsters 4G VoLTE on both SIMs. 

The Honor 10 includes a 5.84-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD with an angle proportion of 19:9 and a pixel thickness of 432ppi. You can pick amongst FHD+ and HD+ in the settings menu keeping in mind the end goal to spare battery life, or set it to auto and let the telephone choose for itself. 

Likewise with most Honor cell phones generally, the show is brilliant, clear and punchy, and has astounding survey points. It is a bit excessively intelligent, however, which makes open-air neatness somewhat of an issue. A Quad-HD show would have adjusted off the bundle pleasantly, yet the lower determination can't generally be recognized in everyday utilize. 

We would say, most first-party applications ran fine on the cell phone's show, with the zone around the indent being utilized to show the time, battery level, flag quality, and different status symbols. The 19:9 angle proportion loans itself well to gaming and mixed media utilization.

Honor 10 performance, software, and battery life

The execution was stellar - the telephone took care of all that we tossed at it easily, be it substantial recreations, for example, Asphalt 8, fundamental everyday assignments, or serious workloads. Calls were clear and fresh, and 4G gathering was strong, even in territories known to have scrappy availability. On a negative note, the cell phone got exceptionally hot, to its point getting to be awkward to hold when pushed. 

Benchmark scores were amazing, putting the Kirin 970 in an indistinguishable group from a year ago's Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, however behind the most recent age of processors. The telephone accomplished 204,439 focuses in AnTuTu, 23fps in GFX Bench Car Chase, 38fps in GFX Bench Manhattan 3.1, and 1,894 and 6,678 separately in Geekbench's single-and multi-center tests. 

The Honor 10 runs Honor's EMUI 8.1 skin on Android 8.1 Oreo. EMUI has developed a ton over the most recent couple of years and is presently a smooth and highlight loaded programming bundle. Huawei claims that EMUI 8.1 utilizations machine figuring out how to brilliantly investigate client conduct and apportion assets as needs are, While fourteen days of utilization isn't sufficient to completely test this, EMUI ran easily amid our audit period - liveliness were smart and exploring all through the interface was a dissatisfaction free undertaking. 

What bargains the experience to some degree is the measure of bloatware. The telephone accompanies five diversion demos from Gameloft and a pack of outsider applications including UC Browser, TrueCaller and Quik preinstalled. Gratefully, the greater part of these can be uninstalled. Furthermore, a couple of regions of the interface, for example, the Settings application and the speedy settings board still look jumbled and require rearrangements. 

EMUI has a large number of clever highlights, for example, a one-gave mode, knuckle motions, a wise messages application that channels out spam, and the capacity to naturally switch between Wi-Fi and portable information relying upon which association is more grounded. 

The Honor 10 likewise underpins confront acknowledgment, utilizing the 24-megapixel front camera, and this works great when there's sufficient light. In negative conditions, the telephone expands the screen shine in order to light up your face before endeavoring to filter it, and this serves to some extent. 

We were somewhat disillusioned with the Honor 10's battery life. The cell phone figured out how to last only 9 hours and 18 minutes in our HD video circle battery test. As far as genuine execution, we ended up going after the charger by around 10-11pm every day, which is not as much as what we've seen on numerous cell phones as of late. Our utilization included WhatsApp and Twitter, playing recreations, for example, Asphalt 8 and Subway Surfers, exploring town utilizing GPS, and taking a couple of pictures. 

While the included charger has the words 'speedy charge' decorated on it, it takes over two hours to charge the Honor 10 completely. As far as we can tell, a 50 percent charge took around 55 minutes.

Honor 10 cameras

At the back, the Honor 10 includes a double camera module involved a 16-megapixel RGB camera with a gap of f/1.8, close by a 24-megapixel monochrome sensor. At the front, the Honor 10 has a 24-megapixel snapper with 1.8-micron pixels. The camera application offers a 3D Portrait lighting mode like the one found on the iPhone X. 

The Honor 10 can perceive the question or scene being shot and upgrade picture settings as needs are. Right now, the cell phone can recognize 22 unique sorts of articles and more than 500 kinds of scenes. On account of the Neural Processing Unit, the Honor 10 is savvy enough to consequently choose significant camera settings relying upon the circumstance. Point it at a man, for example, and the cell phone changes to picture mode. 

Huawei's camera application is anything but difficult to utilize and has a completely highlighted Pro mode, which enables you to modify the screen speed, ISO, introduction, opening, and white adjust. 

We were inspired with the general camera execution of the Honor 10, yet the AI upgrades are somewhat of a blended sack. While the astute scene location helped in specific examples, for example, taking pictures of plants and creatures, most photographs shot with AI mode turned on were overexposed and had oversaturated hues. Gratefully, there is a flip to kill the AI upgrades, and subsequent to doing this, our photographs made strides. The back camera has great powerful range and pictures shot in a positive light are fresh and point by point. With the AI mode turned off, the shading precision is additionally spot-on. 

While the Huawei P20 Pro's magnificent Night Mode has not advanced toward the Honor 10, the monochrome+RGB camera blend helps catch a considerable measure of detail in low light. Thus, pictures shot in low light have a decent measure of detail. The telephone does over-hone pictures now and again, prompting a watercolor-like impact. 

Both the back and front cameras are equipped for catching bokeh shots. The resultant pictures are better than expected with great edge identification. For obscuring the foundation in bokeh selfies, the camera application utilizes programming calculations. AR stickers are actualized great and can be utilized with both the front and the back cameras. 

The 24-megapixel selfie shooter catches a decent measure of detail insufficiently bright circumstances. Commotion sneaks in low light, however, the level of detail is agreeable. The 3D Portrait lighting mode is a decent method to awe companions, however, this component needs a great deal of work right now. The resultant shots are garish, however edge identification is poor. 

Video recording maxes out at 1080p for the front camera, while the back module is fit for 4K video recording. The absence of optical picture adjustment is sadly evident when shooting recordings, yet the level of detail and shading precision are noteworthy. 4K recordings have a 10-minute time restrict, and even electronic adjustment isn't accessible at this determination. 


The Honor 10 is without a doubt the most proficient cell phone that Huawei's sub-image Honor has ever discharged in India. It has a smooth and minimized plan, a brilliant and punchy show, and stacks of intensity on board. While the AI improvements are gimmicky, the camera equipment is magnificent and fit for taking incredible photographs. 

The under-the-glass unique mark sensor, which may at first appear to be modern, is an agony to utilize. Battery life is likewise disillusioning, and the telephone has a tendency to overheat a considerable amount when pushed. Nonetheless, in spite of these issues, it is difficult to disregard the incentive for cash.
