5 Winning Features of Huawei P10 & P10 Plus

Two of the stars of MWC 2017 are Huawei’s new flagship smartphones – the P10 and P10 Plus. These two succeeds the P9 and P9 Plus from last year, bringing back with them the dual rear camera setup that is co-engineered with Leica. It has improved a lot internally and externally. What makes it stand out? Check out its winning features below.

1. Improved design

Huawei certainly took what’s beautiful about the P9’s look and improved it for the P10. In our opinion, it’s sleeker, ergonomic, and more refined. It even exudes some resemblance to the iPhone 7 thanks to the more rounded corners. Glass protection has also improved, from Gorilla Glass 3 it now has Gorilla Glass 5. There are adjustments made on it as well, like the fingerprint scanner which is now placed on the front, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on your preference. Dimension-wise, both the P10 and P10 Plus sport almost the same size and weight as their predecessors although they now carry bigger battery capacities.

2. Upgraded dual rear cameras

The P10/P10 Plus still carries a dual rear camera setup, one monochrome, and one RGB, but instead of two 12MP sensors like those found in the P9/P9 Plus, the monochrome sensor has been upgraded to 20MP. Aperture has was also improved: f/2.2 for the P10 and f/1.8 for the P10 Plus. They also feature OIS, multiple AF tech (PDAF + CAF + Laser + Depth Auto Focus), and 2x Hybrid Zoom. The front camera has been retained though with an 8MP sensor and f/1.9 aperture.

3. 6GB RAM + 128GB storage for the P10 Plus

While some flagships keep their hardware configurations at 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, Huawei is bumping it to 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, but only for the P10 Plus. Aside from the larger 3,750mAh battery (vs 3,200mAh on the P10) and 5.5-inch 2K display (5.1-inch FHD on the P10), heavy users now have more reasons to opt for the bigger brother.

4. Water resistance for the P10 Plus

It’s good to see Huawei keeping up with other devices with the said feature and has equipped the P10 Plus with water resistance. Owners of the said device won’t have to worry in case they spill liquids on it or drop it in water.

5. Plenty of color options

While most devices come in two or three color variants, Huawei is offering up to 8 colors: Ceramic White, Dazzling Blue, Dazzling Gold, Prestige Gold, Graphite Black, Mystic Silver, Rose Gold, Greenery. That said, buyers won’t have a problem picking the color that suits their preferences.

And that sums it up. For more info about the P10, you may check our hands-on here.
