Huawei P10 advantages:

  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • Faster processor
  • Better GPU
  • Upgraded dual rear camera w/ Leica partnership
  • Brighter selfie camera
  • Stereo speakers
  • Larger battery

Huawei P9 advantages:


  • Getting the software update of Huawei P10
  • Cheaper at launch

Overall, the Huawei P10 is an upgrade of the P9. Inside and out, the P10’s improvement spared nothing for the P9 to triumph. Well, the slight redesign of the body is an aesthetic change but the new placement of the fingerprint scanner is a matter of preference.

Camera-wise, the P10 inherited the upgrades seen with the Mate 9. Complete with the larger 20MP monochrome sensor and Leica’s expertise.
