The Huawei Mate 10 Pro falls squarely in the phablet category measuring in at 6.07-by-2.93-by-0.31 inches and weighs 186 grams. As expected, reviewers had difficulty using the phone one-handed, despite the small bezels. Its curved glass back and metal sides also made it difficult for them to grip though they appreciated the design esthetic.

That glass back was surprisingly scratch-resistant. Many critics put it in their pocket alongside change or keys. When they took it out, there were no small scratches or scuffs. It also comes with IP67 certification, which means it can survive even if you drop it in a puddle or pool. Despite the slippery feeling, reviewers found the phone sturdy and reassuring.

Taking a page from the iPhone 8, the Mate 10 Pro did away with the 3.5mm headphone jack—a move that disappointed many.

The 6-inch OLED display comes with a resolution of 2160-by-1080 pixels. While less than even the Mate 10, most critics found that it was good enough, saying you’d be hard-pressed to spot individual pixels. In addition, they add that the colors are punchy with the right amount of pop though. If you're planning to use your phone for editing images or other color-sensitive work, whites weren’t very clean and color reproduction wasn’t as accurate as the Galaxy Note 8.

Despite this, reviewers say it’s still better in terms of viewing angles and color integrity when compared to the Google Pixel 2 or LG V30.

Unlike other smartphone makers, Huawei uses its own processor. The latest iteration is the AI-infused Kirin 970. This, combined with the 6GB of RAM, makes for a very fast phone. It blazed through every task reviewers threw at it without a hiccup and managed 3D games and multitasking.

Because of its powerful processor and huge display, Huawei outfitted the Mate 10 Pro with a 4,000mAh battery.

Experts could get almost one and a half days on a single charge with moderate usage. On standby, it lost only 3 percent of life over a 12-hour period. According to Huawei, the long battery life is due to the processor’s machine learning. It dials back background processes when the phone is not in use.

Like many flagship phones, the Huawei now sports two lenses on the back: a 12MP color sensor and a 20MP monochrome one. The monochrome lens captures detail and improves sharpness while the 12MP one is meant to accurately capture color.

When compared to previous Huawei phones, reviewers noticed a significant improvement in speed. However, they still found it a little slow with auto-focus. Still, this didn’t affect the quality of their images.

Overall, reviewers were happy with sharpness and color accuracy. They were also impressed with its low-light performance, finding low noise levels with good enough detail to post on social media.

In general, critics recommend the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Trusted Reviews states, “... the Mate 10 Pro is a gorgeous device, offering users slick performance, an above-average camera, and excellent battery life…” PC World adds, “... it’s one of the best handsets of the year, with tremendous battery life, incredible speed, and good looks.”

Excellent battery and capable camera give serious competition

from The Inquirer

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a phone with which it's hard to find significant faults and easy to discover bits that you like, and you probably couldn't ask for a lot more in a phone than that.

A great phone that's not quite pro

Slapping a pro moniker on a phone generally implies that it’s the best version of that particular model, but that’s not exactly the case with the Mate 10 Pro.

Slapping a pro moniker on a phone generally implies that it’s the best version of that particular model, but that’s not exactly the case with the Mate 10 Pro. Compared to the cheaper Mate 10, it has a lower-resolution screen, no headphone jack, and no expandable storage. The only real benefits come in the form of a sleeker design and OLED screen.

Beautiful, powerful, smart

Aside from some big faults in the camera department, the Mate 10 Pro is a great phone. It’s got everything you could think of, from a gorgeous and water-resistant build, a near bezel-less design, and gorgeous AMOLED display as well as plenty of software features worth talking about.

The powerful mobile office you've been waiting for

The Mate 10 Pro is a real coming of age phone for Huawei. It's got a premium design, and is a solid performer in all categories. The battery life is class leading, but we wish Emotion UI looked a little more premium.

Phone Scoop

A classy, big-screened flagship device

from Phone Scoop

The hardware is excellent. It's not as distinct as the Note8 or Pixel 2 XL, but it's smaller, cleaner, and overall easier to use day in and day out. The display is great, wireless performance was good, voice performance took me by surprise, and battery life is among the best available for a device in this class.
