What the Critics Are Saying...


PC & Tech Authority

A highly capable and competent flagship, and at only $899 outright in a world of $1,000-plus smartphones, a financially attractive one as well.

- Peter Gutierrez, PC & Tech Authority
WhistleOut

The Mate 10 is easily the best flagship smartphone you can buy for under $1,000, and has no problem going toe-to-toe with far pricier handsets in terms of camera, performance, design, and battery life. You miss out on water-resistance and there's a couple of software quirks to get your head around,...

- Alex Choros, WhistleOut
Notebookcheck

The Huawei Mate 10 is an outstanding smartphone. The few minor quibbles – the (in our case at least) wobbly volume rocker switch, the lack of an IP 67 certification, the context-based brightness adjustment, the postprocessing of the photos – don’t really detract from the overall concept.

- Marcus Herbrich, Notebookcheck
TechSpot

If you are after a large-screen phone and just want a great display, excellent battery life, good enough performance and features like a headphone jack, the Mate 10 does provide a decent option at a lower price point.

- Tim Schiesser, TechSpot
Cnet

The Huawei Mate 10 may be hard for you to get your hands on, but it’s worth the effort if you want a big-screen phone and don’t quite have the budget for a Galaxy Note, iPhone Plus or Pixel 2.

Iterates on an already solid platform, to be faster, smarter, better

from techAU

The movement of the fingerprint sensor from the back to the front home button, certainly takes getting used to. Once you do, you’ll notice the Mate 10 is a serious improvement in virtually every single way over the Mate 9.

A bargain of a flagship

The Huawei Mate 10 is a big phone with an excellent camera, striking design and plenty of power under the hood. Given its size, it won’t be for everyone, but with very few shortcomings it’s a definite contender for best value for money big phone of 2017.

A solid phablet with excellent hardware and okay software

from TrustedReviews

The Huawei Mate 10 is a great phablet and one of the only flagships on the market to retain the hallowed 3.5mm headphone jack. This combined with its super-fast CPU, above-average battery and good for the money camera make it a worthy choice for those who can’t afford the super-expensive Galaxy Note.

A fine flagship specimen, powerful and visually appealing

The all-glass design and the sharp, borderless display are the right stuff to get the Mate 10 noticed and talked about. But they are the we-can-too sort of features rather than you-saw-it-here-first. Or maybe it's us being just pleased when we were looking to be wowed. That's the thing - the Mate...More

The all-glass design and the sharp, borderless display are the right stuff to get the Mate 10 noticed and talked about. But they are the we-can-too sort of features rather than you-saw-it-here-first. Or maybe it's us being just pleased when we were looking to be wowed. That's the thing - the Mate 9 and 9 Pro would do just that, for a fraction of the price.
