Huawei P10: The way it looks and Feels

Huawei has officially revealed its two latest flagships at the MWC this year: P10 and P10 Plus. During the event, we had the chance to get hands-on with the Huawei P10. Here is some feelings about the new Huawei’s smartphone.

Huawei P10 isn’t a massive changes, as it just brings a few refinements over its predecessor, Huawei P9, making the phone a bit sleeker, faster. One of the first interesting things you’ll be impressed about the Huawei P10 family is its eight different options:  White Ceramic, Mystic Silver and Prestige Gold, Dazzling Blue, Graphite Black, Dazzling Gold, Rose Gold, Greenery. According to Huawei, some colors will only be for specific carriers and regions. The Dazzling and Greenery colors will offer a hyper-diamond cut finish. While all models are made from metal, the diamond finish gives you a more tactile surface, fingerprint resistant, anti-scratch.

At the back of Huawei P10, you’ll see a dual sensor setup at the top, which has confirmed by Leica. We can’t evaluate too much about its camera at this time, things seem similar to the company’s P9, but of course, Huawei added plenty of under the changes and improvements to its new flagship’s camera.

One thing you’ll see that the fingerprint scanner has gone! But it’s not gone as it is exactly moved. Huawei traditionally places the fingerprint scanners to its smartphone, but this time Huawei has brought the scanner embedded the physical Home button, below the display. While the scanner is still very fast and easy to use, you can use it now as navigation. The fingerprint scanner can be used as a replacement, as you can go back just by a soft touch, touch and hold is same function as home key, and make a swipe to open recent tasks. There’s even another option to navigate with a floating dock onscreen, which gives you three different ways to get around your phone’s interface.

At the bottom of the smartphone, you’ll find an USB Type-C port, along with the 3.5mm headphone jack and a single loud speaker. On the right side, you have the volume key complex and the Power button.

Powering the Huawei P10 is the in-house-developed Kirin 960 SoC, packed with 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage, microSD support, a 5.1-inch Full HD display, and the above mentioned dual-camera setup including one 12MP sensor and a 20MP monochrome sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The front facing cameras are also Leica branded, with an 8MP unit. The battery is non-removable 3200 mAh, which is expected to give through a day’s usage without any trouble. The Huawei P10 comes with the latest EMUI 5.1 customized interface based on Android 7.0 Nougat that means all key Nougat features are all here.
