Huawei P10 Plus Review

Scandal’s a funny thing for smartphones. Sometimes a phone bounces right off a controversy without batting an eye – just look at how all the antennagates and bendgates failed to derail iPhone sales. Other times the impact is much more substantial, and it didn’t take very long last year for us to go right from the first reports of Galaxy Note 7 battery issues to the phone being recalled en masse and ultimately scrapped.

Huawei launched its spring flagships back at Mobile World Congress in February, introducing the duo of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. Initially, we put the smaller …

Huawei P10 Lite Review

Making a solid mid-range phone in 2017 is a rewarding, yet difficult task. If a manufacturer gets it right, its product can achieve success on a global basis, but one simple miscalculation can lead to failure in this cutthroat segment of the market.

This year, Huawei is aiming to entice budget-conscious consumers with the P10 Lite. Rather than boasting Leica-branded dual cameras and powerful hardware like its flagship siblings, the China-based manufacturer has chosen to equip the P10 Lite with a mid-range processor and a single 12MP shooter at the back, thus slashing the …

We’ve explained in our previous report that many P10 and P10 Plus users have noticed major discrepancies in the storage speeds on their devices. Basically, the sequential read speeds of the P10 and P10 Plus significantly vary between 700MBps and lower than 300MBps.
